Strategy for bloodbath/games:
After president Snow death the land of Panem grew more and more peacefull. The 76th annual hunger games was held but as a disapointment for many president snow grandaugther, Rose Ana Snow, wasn't reaped. People slowly grew careless about their freedom and tried to put the days of the rebellion past them. After 12 years of controlling Panem, President Paylor passed away from a heart discease. Her dauther Megan was elected and won but sadly she wasn't a good leader.
Rose was furrious of the way the land was ruled and wanted to lead Panem like she promised by her grandfather, Snow, himself. She made an rebellion group of people from the capitol who throught they were mistreated. She made a complot and poisened all of the food in the president's mansion. Many of the new rulers of Panem died and one dark night, Rose snuck in and assasinated Megan Paylor herself. A year after she was in full control of Panem and had crused every single enemy standing in her way.
The Quater quell
President Rose steps up to the podium. She smiled a little smile knowing that every single person in Panem were looking at her now. She took a breath and started speaking: "It has been 24 years now. 24 years since the last hunger game, the 76th annual hunger game was held. In the 23 years from that point people grew careless. They forgot to appriciate the fremdom that they were so foolishly given by president Paylor. But I never forgot! I never forgave! And now I am here all cause of the carelessness that the people of Panem fell into . The leader of Panem. I won't be forgiving. I won't forget. You saw my wrath when I killed them. My enemies. The traitor Katniss Mellark Everdeen who killed my grandfather and her husband Peeta Mellark and their children. The leading people of district 13. The traitors from the capitol both the people behind the rebellion and the people who doubted my abilitys to lead. And the surviving winners of the other district." She stops speaking and look around. She sees the excitmend in the people of the capitol eyes. In her own group of rebels.
"I have decided in the honor of my grandfather, President Coriolanus Snow, to remake the hunger games. I will skip the games from the 77th to the 99th and start with the 100th". People gasp for air cause they no what that means. A quater quell. "This year, to honor the children of the capitol who were blow to pieces by President Alma Coin, in front of my grandfathers mansion, on the last day of the rebellion. To honor all of the diffrent generations of children who were killed in the 76th annual hunger game this games tributes shall not be decided by gender, but by age. There will be one 12-year-old from each of the 13 district, one 13-14, one 15-16 and one 17-18. Then they will fight in 4 seperate arena's until only 5 is left in each arena. Then all of them will be taken to a new arena where they will fight until one victor remains!".

District 1's reaping:
I wake up to the smell of pancakes. It's quite weird...Why would my mother make pancakes? Ever since we fell into dept a half year ago we have only eaten oatmeal. Wait... It's today...The day of the reaping. I still haven't decided yet if I wanted to volunteer. I have secretly trained since we fell into dept. If I were to win these the games we would be rich again. I thought I was sure that I was going to volunteer...But as the day came closer and closer I have begun to have second thoughts. Somehow I hoped that I was going to wake up knowing what to do. But my mind is filled with doubt still. I walk out in kitchen were a plate of pancake is ready just for me. I guess with this quell twist she would think that I would be scared. No career would volunteer when they are 12. My mother smiles. "You didn't need to..." I say. The ingredients for pancakes are expensive. "That's okay, Alski" My mother says. "We can have something special today". There is a pause and then she continues. "It won’t be you. It will someone else”. But the odds of me being district 1's 12-year-old tribute is bigger than she might expect...
I wake up in the little room I have for myself. Everytime I wake up to this room I am reminded by what I had. My room was four times bigger than this. All of my toys was made with perfection and most of it were so expensive that if the people from the poor district's would try to save money up for it they would have to work around 5 years without any breaks. When I was younger I never throught about the poor districts of Panem. Now I do. I fell like I am poor yet still I am rich compared to them. What a horrible life. I walk to the kitchen. My mother had baked bread and we sad down and eate. We are all quiet. They are scared to do anything that might make me back out. They are relying on me. I will not disapoint them. I miss my old life. And I wanna do everything I can to get it back. Even if it means I have to volunteer. Even if I have to risk my new life to get my old one back. We finish up and I put on the pretty reaping dress. We had to save up for a long time to buy it for me. But it's nessesary. Pretty tributes get's good sponsors so it's an investment my family is willing to take. We head out of the old house and I say goodbye to my parents whom hugs me tight. "I will get it back" I whisper to them. "I will get our old life back".
I have stood in the group of 12-year-olds for about fifthteen minuets when our escort finally comes up to the microphone after the shortfilm about the rebellion. We all freeze. One of us in this group is going in the hunger games. "Welcome, welcome, welcome, weeeelcome" the escort drags the last welcome out for a long time. I am still doubt...Should I? Should I not? "Happy hunger games!" she continiues "And may the odds be ever in your favor!". "Ladies first, and let's start with the 12-year-olds". She walks over a big classbowl and digs her hand deep into it then she reads: "Sofia Smith!". A blonde girl walks past me slowly to the stage. It's now. I have to decide now. And then I remember. A winter night I woke up. My throat felt like a dessert so I walked down the stairs to get a cup of water, however I stopped when I her it. My mother was sitting on the desk with her head in her hands crying her eyes out. It's was weird...hearing my mother cry. Mother's don't cry...Parents don't cry. And I found out the morning after how much we owed. And suddenly the doubt is gone. "I volunteered!" I yelled and walk up to the stage.
Most of us have to gasp for air. None of us has expected a 12-year-old to volunteer. Even the escorts just stand there for a second before she get's her sences back. "So honey, what's your name?" You can pratically see the excitement flowing out of her. She knows that people will remember this reaping now. "Alska Miller" she says confidently. "Okay, let's get on" she says. She walks over to next reaping ball and takes a slip from the top. "Azmela Parker!" she yells out. I smile. I remember when my parents made me promise to not volunteer. I look at my father and send him a big smile. It's hard to not run up to the stage. "Well you sure is a happy one!" she says. "Any volunteeres?" she ask. No volunteeres, no volunteeres, no volunteeres I think to myself. No one says anything. "That's a shame" our escorts says and walks to next ball.
Before she can even reach for a slip I yell: "I VOLUNTEER!". I put a big smile on and walk up to the stage. "And what's your name?" she ask. "Cheerish Reyes!" I say almost yelling. I hope my call reaches out to all of the sponsors who watches this right now. "Okay now for the 17 to 18 year olds" she says. "I VOLUNTEER!!!" someone yells before our escorts walks over to the ball. A tall blonde guy runs to the stage. "And your name?" she says. She sounds somewhat insulted. "Lion Scrapes!!!!" he almost yells. "Okay. People of Panem I present to you the tributes of district 1. Alska Miller! Azmela Parker! Cheerish Reyes! And Lion Scrapes!"
District 2's reaping:
I wake up. My room -which is always messy- is surprisingly clean today. And then I remember it. Reaping day... I am still doubting if I want to volunteer or not. This game is harder to win than the others cause of the quell... And I could use the last year on the academy... But I fell ready. Isn't that the most important? I get dressed. Then I walk out on of my room and enter my sisters. She always forget to set the clock so it's my duty to wake her. My sister... The fact that I even have one is fantactic. I guess that's why I wake her each and every morning without complaining.
"Wake up, sleepyhead". A voice pulls me out of my sleep. I look up and see my brother looking at me. His face is so close that it's almost irresistable to punch him in the face. If he wasn't my brother I would have punched him. I hate mornings. "Well atleast I have one" I mutter and turn over bury my head in the pillow. "Have what?" Dylan ask me. "A head" I say barely hearable with my mouth pressed against my pillow. "That's the worst insult I have ever heard from you" he says in a joking tune. I sit up on my bedside and look up. "Fine. I am awake now....And thanks" I know it's unfair that I am insulting him. Really I should be happy that he wakes me up. "You're welcome" he says and walks towards the door. Before he leaves I say: "My insult topped any insult you have ever come up with". "In your dreams" He says and closes the door.
I walk over to the city center. It's filled with loads of unfamiliar faces from the other villages. When ever they see me they always starre. Atleast that's what I think. Poor sweet little girl, she must terrified or That cute little girl shouldn't have to go through this! I am NOT sweet! I want to shout at them. I am NOT cute! I am NOT little! Well... I am small but I am not little. "Little" is when you cry when somebody pushes you away or say something mean. I am not that kind of girl...not anymore. And I gonna proof it. We stop by the lines. "Goodbye" my mother whipers. "I know you are gonna win. You are gonna be the youngest winner of the hunger games" she says and smiles. She tries to hug me. I let her but don't hug back. Only a little girl would do so. Then I get my blood taken. I try to look bored while they take blood. It's hurts a little but I can't let that show. Then I walk over to the 12-year-olds. Most of them are terrified. Then our escort walks, Vicki Orchid, onto the stage and begins. I don't really listen and starts to think about one of my lastet knife fights on the academy. I was about to loose but then I rolled to the side and..."Maya Fox!" our escort yells. I am thrown out of my daydreaming and see the girl walking up to stage slowly. "I VOLUNTEER!" I yell and walk up to the stage.
A little girl walks up to the stage like she some kind of emotionless robot. It's hard not to laugh because of the ways she looks. A killing machine with a baby face and long brown hair and freckles all over her face. Hah! "What's your name?" the escorts ask her. She takes the microphone out of the escorts hands and says with a loud, clear and highpitched "Carey Wishwell". Then our escort walks over to the bowl for the 13-14 year olds. She picks a name from the top and reads it. "Ivy Korrés!". "I VOLUNTEER!" some girl with black hair walks up to the stage fast with just a little confident smile on her lips. "And what's your name?" says Vicki. "Mirror Gomez" she says with a confident voice. I know my brother I gonna volunteer this year or the next. So far it doesen't seems like there is much competition from his own district. Then Vicki walks over to the next bawl and digs her hand deep down before finally dragging a slip up. "Olive Henderson!"... Wait, WHAT!? I wasn't gonna volunteer until three years when I turn 18. Calm down, Olive, I tell myself. Somebody will volunteer for you. I walk up to the stage and look out at the children gathered around scene. "Any volunteeres?" our escorts ask... A long silence. "Hmm...That's too bad" she says.
I see Olive standing up there looking down on her feet. I know she is very talented with throwing knifes and her bow but what about all the things she haven't learned yet? She stand a chance but she is far from safe. I was doubted that I was gonna volunteer. An extra year never hurt anyone. But now it's not my choice anymore. I remember when I was in the orchanage. How lonely I was... How I wished I had someone to talk to. And although Olive might not seem like the best company she's actually very nice to be with. And she understands me... I can't let her die! I see our escort as she pulls out a strip. She is about to read it out loud when I yell "I VOLUNTEER!". Olive sends me a glare that could kill someone but I ignore her and almost run to the stage. "And your name is?" our escort ask. "Dylan Henderson!". "Oh, so you are related!" she says. She sounds excited. This reaping will be one of the more popular ones. And the people of the capitol will talk about the poor pair of siblings from district 2. How her brother volunteered just to protect his sister from the games. "People of the capitol! I present you the proud tributes of district 2! Carey Wishwell! Mirror Gomez! Olive Henderson! And Dylan Henderson! As me and Olive shake hands she whispers, hissingly: "Idiot! We can't both survive!". "I know..." I answer and her eyes widen when she finds out that I am not planning to leave the arena alive.
District 3's reaping:
I wake up in my little room. I look at the little machine on the table. I didn't clean the my invetiondesk as I usually do. The tools and wire is al over the place. It's reaping day... After the reaping we have the rest of the day off. I still haven't figured out what's missing about it... If I make it right my machine should be able to generate electricity. It's nothing special, and there are loads of electricity generators that you buy on the market but my family would never be able to afford one. So my only option was to make my own. I am almost done but somethings missing... I get up and get dressed. I walk down the stairs and is greeted by the smell of scrambled eggs. I sit down by the table and my mother putts a plate of eggs. I nodd as to thank her. "You're boy of few words, Micah" she says. My mother is the only person that I know understands me. Even my father is annoyed by the fact that I prefer not to talk. I eat the rest of the eggs
I fell a warm hand on my chin. My brother smiles and I smile back. I still remember when my parents used to wake me up that way. I am always sad when I am awakened this way. It's painfull to be reminded by my parents. But I don't complain. I know how he struggles to be a good rolemodel and how he wants to replace the parents we lost. No matter how many times I tell him that I can wake up by myself, that I am 17 now he still wakes me up every morning. I get up and he walks out to give me some privacy. I put my reaping dress on. It was my mothers... As I look down at myself I begin to cry. I look exactly like her. My brother hears my sobbing and walks in and hugs me tight. I calm down and we walk to the city center.
Me and my sister walks over to the area for 13-14-year-olds. We are crumbled together as we watch the stupid video about the two failed rebellion... Seriously all of these rebellions have failed pretty bad. I bet there is a new group of rebellions having a meeting about how to assisinate the president right as we stand here. Finally our escort who has canary-yellow short dress with a lightning shaped hat. It's hard not to laugh. She welcome us and walk over to the 12-year-olds reapingball and picks a name on the top. "MICAH GIGGA!" she yells like she always. For long time nothing happens and then some other 12-year-olds push a little boy with brown hair out of the group and he walks up at the stage. His hands shake like crazy but he looks more confused than scared. Our escort walks over to the next ball. I hold my breath hopeing it is not me. "TALLY SCALES!" she reads out loud...my sister....
I see the girl who volunteered run up to to the girl who was reaped they. They cry and hug each other. They look just like each other. They must have been sisters. The older girl pulls herself together and walk to the stage while the other girl cries her eyes out as she go back to the area for the 13-14-year old. You can't help, but fell sorry for her. Then our escort, Celna Karrieya walks to the next ball and draw a name. I am not that scared. I didn't take any tesseraes so I am just one slip in a thousands. The odds are in my favor as our silly escort says. She walks over to the microphone with the little slip. She outfolds it and yell "ALICE WILLIAMS!" I freeze... I am going into the hunger games. I try to calm myself as I walk to the stage. I am intelligent. If the odds are my favor I might win. But I guess the odds have a tendensy to not be in my favor. Our escort walks over to the last bowl and digs her hand down in the slips. Then she drags one up from the bottom and walks back to the microphone "ELYSIA KANDLE!" she yells and a girl with long brown curly hair walks up to the stage. She stops while walking up and look out at the croud trying to find someone. She sees him or her and she nods just barely. Then she walks up. "Any volunteeres?" Celna ask. Off course no one volunteers. If somebody wanted to they already had done it. Nobody wait until she asks. "Okay, then, People of Panem, I present you the tributes from district 3: Micah Gigga! Mia Scales! Alice Williams! And Elysia Kandle!
District 4's reaping:
I wake up to crying. My mother is crying her eyes out by the bed where my brother passed away some days ago. The door is open and the bed still haven't been made so you can see excatly where he was laying. He was in pain. Death was a gift for him I try to tell myself. He wanted nothing more when the sickness reached it's last state. However my eyes still tear up and I walk in by the bed and sit beside my mother. We cry out our eyes together. First my father and then my brother. I am she has left now. She can't even focus on the reaping even though I can be reaped and actually end up in the games this time. I can't blame her... My brothers death fills too much in her mind right now. "We gotta get ready" I say softly to my mother. She looks confused at me almost like she has forgotten all about reaping. "Yes" she whispers and walks in to her bedroom to get dressed.
I get dressed and walk down the stairs. The room has a smell of sligthly burned waffels. My mother couldn't make a good waffel if her life depended on it but it was my brother favorite. We always grow silent when it's reaping day. The memory's of my brother still haunts us. My mother is standing by the oven and has a greaving look on her face. My father is putting dishes on the dinnertable and has a blank expression on his face. We sit down and eat in silence. Five mornings before we had a lighthearted conversation about fishing tecnique would be able to catch most fish in one minute. We finish eating and head out to reaping area.
I walk down to the reaping area with my parents. We reach the waiting lines where we have to stand in line to get our blood taken and I hug my parents. "Make me proud" says my father as he hugs me however I am not sure I will. Last year I was sure that I was going to volunteer but I have gotten so many good friends and my family which I love more than anything is trying to make me drop my plans of volunteering (Well, except my father who have always wanted me to volunteer). I part with my parents and stand in a line. Why would I volunteer? I have a good life here... But I also really want the fame, and the endless amount of money. I guess I will have to wait. If I think about to much I will stress myself out end up making the wrong decision.
"Welcome everyone to the reaping of the 100th annual hunger games" our escort says with a voice filled by enthusiastic voice. She gotta be new and is apparently determened not to read the original script for the reapings. "Just get on with it!" somebody yells. A rather insulted expression comes across her face but it is quickly replaced by a big, plastic smile. "Well, ooookaaayyy" she says and walks over to the first reaping bawl for the 12-year-olds. She picks a slip from the top and I bite my lip as she almost dances back to the microphone and opens the slip slowly. Then she yells "STARRYYY TUUULOOPE!". I just stand there for a second or two. What did she say? Was it my name? No...I couldn't be me! Somebody gently touches my shoulder and regain my senses as I silently walks to the stage. "NOOOO!" I can hear my mother screams as she runs through the diffrent age-groups she reaches me and hugs me tight as the tears runs down her face. A peacekeeper walks over to her and drags her away while holding her left arm tight. "NO!"she screams and tries to get back but the peacekeeper is much stronger than her. I walk up to the stage take a last look at my mother. She looks like her life just lost all it's purpose... There is no one left with her now.
We all stand for a little while after watching the mother being dragged away. Even our way-over-the-top escort has to regain her sences before she finally says: "Well, let's get on, shall we?". She walks up and draws a name does her little walk-dance back to the microphone. "TIDUS SANDS!" she yells and a boy with brown hair walks up to the stage. "I VOLUNTEER!" A tall boy with weird green hair runs to the stage. "Oh, we have a volunterer!" our escort shrieks. No sh*t Sherlock, I think and smiles a little. I am still doubting if I should volunteer... I still got time to decide... No need to stress, right? "So what's your name?" she ask the boy. "Jeremy Al!" he says and smiles. "Great, then let's get on!". She walks towards the next ball but before she reaches for a slip, a boy yells "I VOLUNTEER!" And rushes to the stage. "Looks like we have yet another volunteerer!". I can't control myself this time and yell: "No sh*t sherlock!". She sends me deathglare and ask for his name. "Thomas Quince!" he says and can't hide the grin in his voice. Our escort puts on an awkvard smile again and walks over to the last reaping bawl. She doesen't dances her way back like she did before, and I guess she is eager to end this reaping after what I yelled. "TALLULAH NEWES!" she yells.... Wait? What?! I look up and see that a saticefied smile on our escorts annoying face. It doesen't matter anyway, somebody is gonna volunteer for me anyway. I walk to the stage. "Any volunteeres?" she ask. "I --" somebody says but is cut of by our escort. "That's a shame" she says and before anyone can say anything more she says: "Panem, say Hello to the tributes from district 4! STARRY TULOPE! JEREMY AL! THOMAS QUINCE! AND THE LOVELY TALLULAH NEWES!
This arena is a big, strong, and healthy forest. In treetops there is a village with small wooden ropebridges that connect to wooden platforms with small houses on them. The biggest platform is in the middle with the cornacopia. On the ground there are three lakes, one by the cornacopia and one in the east and one in the west. On the ground there are loads of mutts and the only safety from them is the trees however you can't get water up in trees. This arena is good for small tributes that needs places to hide and climbing is one of the most important skills. It might take some time to find the five last tributes because there are loads of places to hide and it's hard to see tributes more than 20 meters away. Not a good arena for the careers.
13-14-year-olds arena:The arena is medium siced deserted island with some small island beside it. There are some stepstones that connects the main island to the smaller but you have to be somewhat fast or agile to make it across or simply just svim over. On the main island there is a rainforest, some mountains, a meadow that surrounds the rainforest and a beach. The water is saltwater, but you might find small lakes or rivers in the rainforest. The smaller island has small groups of trees and a beach surounding them. You never know when the tides will swallow some parts of the arena. There are some shark mutts in the water but they are pretty rare. There are some jaguar and tiger mutts in the rainforest. In the moutains you might find some mutts too. This arena it will take not so long to find the five last tribute cause there are not that much space. A decent arena for a career and a good arena for a svimmer.
15-16-year-olds arena:A dessert canyon. This is the outskirt of the dessert valley. There is a small mountain chain with loads of caves but with no resourses. There is only one water source near the cornacopia. There is an small abandoned village with old small houses. The only little area with plants are the swamp surounded by a small meadow. There are two watchtowers in the corners of the arena which are good to get an overview. This arena is very hot and it's easy to get dehydrated and you loose energy quickly so it's good to be fit. This arena will probaly be over quickly as it quite hard to move between areas without being seen by another tribute unless you move at night. At night it gets really cold and tribute will need some source of heat to not get sick. There are a few mutts mostly scorpions and snakes. There are also "dessertgoats" (don't remember their real name) and camels to hunt. A good arena for a career, and a bad one for somebody who has bad stamina
17-18-year-olds arena:This arena is a inspired from a farming village in the medieval times. There is an small village with some houses and city center with a cornacopia and four wells with clean water. Surounding it there are three fields one with lavender flowers that might be heal small wounds or infection however it's easy to be seen in it. A cornfield with corns that are not yet ready and might give sickness if eating. It's to see tributes in that field cause the plants are really tall. The grainfield is filled with golden tall grain. You can eat it however you can't get full by it. It's pretty hard to see a tribute hiding in the field. In the fields there are insects and snake mutts. There is also a small forest with some wolf and bear mutts. There is a small lake in it too.

"Let the 100th annunal hunger games begin!"
Day 1: A smaller bloodbath
The tupe I am in rises slowly from the plate. My hands shake uncontrolable. I hold my breath in an attemp to calm down but it doesen't help. I close my eyes for a second and try to focus. It helps a little. When I open my eyes, I am surronded by leaves and branches. We are standing on a big wooden platform in the treetops. I can see some bridges around, however ypu could -if you were a good climber- just use the trees to get around. I better not, it's too risky for a boy like me. I look around in the outskirts of the field. I see a spole of wire lying quite near me. Great! If I can get electricity somehow I can make a nice trap. But should I really risk it...The wire can safe my life...or cost me my life... 55...54...53...52...51...
I look at the tributes beside me. A girl with long read hair from five and a the girl from 9 with her oh-so-pretty long blonde hair. She will be my first victim I promise myself. I look at the ground around me see some fine knifes in front of me. I look at her... Katy, I think one last time and whisper silently. "Your life is gonna end soon". 44...43...42...
I look around to see the nearest career. The cute girl from two is sending the girl from 9 a deathglare. I want to join the careers but I should probaly not ask her. I look around and see the girl from 4. I have talked to her a little in the training. I told her that I was considering joining the careers and she told me that I were welcome. Not really the evil and brutal career that I imangined. I should probaly ask her. I will sprint in and ask her and keep away from the girl from 2, I decide and get ready to sprint. 38...37...36...35...
I am stand ready to sprint away. I take a look at all of the nice swords that are lying in the mouth of the cornucopia, however I know that if I go after them I will be dead. I try look after a bridge that I can use to get away. There is one not so far away from me. I take a deep breath. 27..26...25...24...
I look around and try to analyse the other tributes. A girl from 1 stands ready to run strait to the cornacopia. A girl from 11 is looking around the outskirts for usefull stuff. The girl from 10 is standing ready to dash to the cornucopia. What an idiot... She gotta be the only tribute stupid enough to run into the cornacopia. The boy from 13 is ready to run away from the cornucopia. It's so easy to read their tributes body language. I don't know if should blame it on the tension or the fact that most of these tributes are pretty dang stupid sometimes. It's probaly both. I should probaly run away the bloodbath, I figure... My sponser can send me the stuff I need... I see a brigde somewhat nearby and stand ready to run. 16...15...14...13
I look around and see Starry. We get eye-contact and nodd. She doesen't seem very fierce... I am not sure about her... Will she break under the preasure. 9...8...7... I find Carey from district two and get eye-contact too. My alliance is set. 3...2...1...0 I run off the plate towards the cornucopia.
I jump down on the ground and dash over to brigde leading over to a wooden platform close by. I wish I had allied so that I could stay and get some supplies. But...Alex...I can fell the tears in my eyes. Don't Katy. You can't cry now. Alex would have been disapointed. I shut my eyes tightly together and run over the wooden brigde
NOO! I just reached a knife lying close to me when I see the girl from 9 running over the wooden bridge hopelessly far away. What a stupid girl. Only an idiot would pass the chance of getting some supplies. It's okay I tell myself. "I will find you" I whisper and then I look around for another victim. That's when I see the girl from 5 running towards a backpack. I smile and take the knife ready to throw. She is just about to grap the backpack when my knife goes through her forehead. BOOM!
I am almost there. I am running faster than I have ever ran. I breath is going crazy and adrealin is pupping through my vains. I reach the cornucopia mouth and is almost about to throw up when I fall down on my knees. Starry from 4 walks up to me. She's gonna kill me now. I told her I was considering joining the careers but never gave her an answer. "Are you okay?" she says. She sounds like she really cares, actually. "I a-a-am fine...pl-pl-pl-please... I want to join the careers" I finally stop stammering and get up. "Of course!" she says and walks over and pick up a trident. What? I throught I had to proff myself or something...not just this. Another career -the girl from 2- reaches the cornucopia and sends me a glare telling me that I am not welcome. I knew it wasn't that easy. I take a set of throwing knifes and look and see the boy, I think he is from 6, running towards a blowgun. I send my knife flying. It's burries deep down in his face right between the eyes. BOOM! I turn to girl from 2 and smile. "Welcome to the careers" she says.
I pick up a bread and a rope when I see a knife not so far away from me. I run towards it and that's when I see her. The girl called Ally Deaphalia is almost there reaching for the knife too. I get it a second before her and for another second we just freeze. Then I pierce the knife through her shocked body. It drag it out and the blood explodes all over me. BOOM! Her body falls down in front of me and I turn around and run away from her dead body terrefied by thing I just did.
I reach out to get a bread when and look up. Where's is Ally? I run around in the outskirts desperately trying to locate my ally. And that's when I see that girl from 12 piercing her knife through my allies body. Ally's body... I run towards them trying to reach for them knowing that it's way too late. I am halfway when Jane runs over the one of the wooden bridges. I run over to Ally but she is already gone. A knife flies past my head when I see the girl from 2 sending a knife after me. I get up, pick up the knife she threw after me and run towards the north end of the arena. "I promise Ally... I promise I will avenge you" I whisper as I run...
My hands reaches to get a box of matches. In my left hand I have wire and a blanket I picked up before. I throught running for the wire was gonna get me killed but it was nobody noticed me. I guess they all were too busy saving themself. I look uo and see the last person run away. I guess it's time for me to go aswell. A career -the girl from 4, I think- who turns and point at me. The girl from 2 sees it and throws her knife. It hits the tree some meters away from me. I get up and run over the south brigde. I hear the sound of knife hitting another branch.
"Dammit, I lost him!" I hear Carey yell from the edge of the cornucopia platform. I stayed in the mouth of the cornucopia. I haven't trained as much as the others and I have never gone to an academy and the only weapon that I can use is knifes so I stayed in the mouth of the cornucopia ready to kill anyone who would try to get some supplies however none of them tried to get any so I was quite boared, actually. Starry stayed with me in the cornucopia for some reason that I still don't get. Carey -oh, and Sylvester- was really the only ones who got any kills. I look over at Starry who has begone to look through the supplies. Carey walks over to us. She looks pretty pissed and considering she only got one kill it's really not surprising. "I am gonna find you" I hear her whipers. I shiver. I really hope she dies soon cause she creeps me out.
I jump up on a big branch and begin to climb from tree to tree. I predict that the careers will start hunting for tributes tomorrow however they will probaly stay on the platforms so I should be save if I get far enough away. I finally find a tree with a thick branch and lay down trying to find a comfortable way to sleep. I am just about to drift off when I am awaken by the anthem. I look at the sky and see the faces of the girl from 5 who looks a lot like me, the boy from 6, and the girl from 7. Then it fades. Wow...Only 3 deaths? I guess I underestimated my fellow tributes... oh well, is probaly just pure luck in most chases.
Day 2: Listen for the scream
Bip...bip...bip...My alarmclock? I open my eyes and see a silver...mass... I blink a couple of times and try to focus when the weird blurred out silver shape becomes a parachute. I shake the last bits of sleep off myself and look in it. There is a whole feast inside of it, with two soups and two bags of dried fruit. I crawl down from the tree beside the platform. There is a tiny hut on it but I was scared to sleep in it. The only exit is the door and if the careers where to come in there... No I don't want to think about it. I open the box of dried meat and see that there is a little note inside it. Ally with Kara It says...Great now I just need to find her in a gigantic forest...
I wake up by a little annoying beeping. At home whenever I heard beeping I would assume that I made a fail in my electricity generator. I remember ones waking up to the beeping and a second after the generator exploded...luckily only desk was hurt from it. I walk out of tiny hut on the platform and see that this is much better than exploding electricity generator. Two parachutes one with dried fruit and one with a spile. I open the box and eat a piece. It's like being an entire new person...didn't realize how hungry is was I guess... I stick the spile in the tree and drink. After that I walk back and read the note, that's telling me that I should make traps and avoid the other tributes. If that's so then these huts are deadtraps. I take my box and my spile and set of a few basic snares around the platform. I can return tonight and see if I caught anything.
"We gotta go hunt" says Carey. What a wake up call. I get up, take a strinp of meat from a box near me and watch as Carey wakes up Sylvester and Starry. She lighty kicks Sylvester, obviously still haven't accepted that a girl from the "poor district's" can be in the careers. Sylvester doesen't say a thing but just get up get a meat strip. "I guess so" I answer. "I want to go west!" Carey says. "I am sorry, Carey" says Sylvester quietly. "But I think we should go north...it's the area with most tributes...". "Yeah, that's best" I say. Starry looks down and says nothing. Carey sends us a glare. "Fine! But we go to the west when we are done up there!"
I have looked around the trees near the platform but I haven't found a thing. I am so hungry I could begin to cry. It's was hard enough to fall asleep yesterday, heck it was hard enough to even survive yesterday. I can fell the tears in my eyes. Everything is so hopeless..."No Katy...You can't cry now. Alex would be dissapointed..." I whisper to myself. I get up and begin to walk not really knowing where I am going at all. I begin to run. I just need something to focus on other than my empty stomach, my dry throat and my near death. I don't even notice at all when it happens. Something says "snap" and suddenly I am hanging upside down from a tree with a rope tied around my foot. And it's then that it begins. Big tears fall down and it's weird cause they fall over my forehead down in my hair or down on the ground. "Please forgive me, Alex" I whisper to dead man cause I know I will be joining him soon...
If a tree fell in a forest where no one would hear it would it make a sound? I have pretty much used all day walking around trying to find that damned girl from 8. I was totally bored and then the question came to mind so I have pretty much spent the day thinking about it although I still have yet to find an answer. Really it's weird. Here I am in a arena full of tributes ready to kill me and now I am thinking about the sound that trees make when they fall? And then I hear another sound... A sound far more highpitched than a tree falling... I quickly hide behind a tree and then I see them with Kara from 8. The girl from two pushes the girls from 4 and 10 away and walk over to Kara who is helt in an armlock by the girl from 1. "I want the kill" she tells Alska, apparently she didn't need permission from the others. The girl from two jumps on her body and pin her to the platform. She takes a small knife from her jacket and then it...the tourture...begins with her ears. I can't walk away, I have to use all of my willpower not to throw up. The girl from 4 apparently can't handle it turns around, goes down on all four a throw up. "You're such a coward, Starry" the girl from 2 says. She picks up Kara's ears and throws it over to Starry who throws up even more. Finally I hear a BOOM! And then I can't control myself. While Carey get's up I throw the knife I have at her. I have had a couple of sessions in knifethrowing in the training station but it's pure luck that I hit her head really. BOOM! The others look up in shock and I know there's only one way to escape. Down. I let myself fall down from the trees lands on the ground and start to run. I look back and in the last seconds I avoid a knife from Alska. None of them seem to wanna follow me down on the ground and I do get that I have to get away from here soon.
"Dammit we lost her" I say. Alska nods and Starry doesen't say anything cause she's still too busy throwing up her organs. "We should probally keep looking but we have to be carefull. We can't use too much time killing tributes and having "fun" or else that will happen" she points at Carey lifeless body. "let's continiue and get this section of the arena done". We get up and walk a little. Then we see a girl sitting in a tree. "Hello district 11" says Alska and sneaks futher in on her. It's incredible to see how she can sneak up on people like that. Then she poke her on the back and 11 turns around and screams. Then Alska's knife goes through her neck BOOM!
There haven't happened much today... I sit with my sword in my hand. The fine sharp edge that's so high quality that it could cut through most things. Then I hear something...foot steps... I look down and see Jane from 12 walking 20 meters away. I am unsure if I should reveal my location... She could be armed, although I can't see any weapons. She decides to climb a tree around 30 meters away from mine. Luckily for me this forest is overgrown and I can't see her through the leafes. I hope that means she can't see me aswell. I silently crawl down and find another tree somewhat far away from her.
I decide to go home when I think that I have walked enough. I heard the 3 cannonshoots and I still remember how frigtened I was but the action gotta be going on somewhere else cause I haven't seen any other trib-... I stop...What's that? I listen closely...somebody is crying... I sneak closer and see that my trap has caught the pretty girl from 9. She's hanging upside down and crying her eyes out. Then she sees me. "Please just do it quickly" she says begging "I can't take this...I wanna go home". And suddenly I know I can't do it. Killing somebody while they are begging me to do it fast, killing somebody hopelessly caught up in a wire hanging from a tree. I walk over and climb the tree. "You to be ready" I tell her while unmaking the knot on the tree branch. "1...2...3!" I untie the knot complelety and she falls down her side. She could easily have made it that the fall wouldn't hurt but still she decided to just let her fall...She really have given up... I help inside the hut and give her a piece of dried fruit. She holds it in her hands and just stares at it. Then she starts to cry even more. I hear the anthem and walk out of the house to see the faces on the sky: The girl from 2, wow a career! And then the girl from 8...weird, she looked like somebody who knew her stuff...but then again I throught District 9 knew her stuff too and then the girl from 11...Then it all fades and I walk back in. The piece of drie fruit in dist...wait I think her name is Katy hands is gone.
Day 3: Where is she?
I wake up in the cornucopia. Seems like Alska was on guard but fell asleep. I can't really blame her. The days here has been so awfully rough. I am just glad to be in the careers, even though I might not be very usefull. I look at Sylvester and then wake up Alska knowing that Sylvester will be angry if she saw that Alska falling asleep on guard. "Alska" I whisper softly and she opens her eyes. "I am awake!" she yells, waking Sylvester. "You fell asleep?" Sylvester ask but luckily not that angry. "Sorry" Alska mutters. "No need. This will be our last day here. I have a felling" Sylvester says. "Let's splidt up and find the tributes around". "Are you sure?" I ask nervously. "Yes, I am... I can go alone and you two can go together" she says and get's up. She picks up a sword and a knife and begins to walk to the south. I get up and pick up a trident while Alska get her knifes and we both head north.
I wake up in the little hut with Micah by my side. We only had one blanket so we shared his. I walk on my tiptoes to try not to wake him and walk outside to look for any parachutes for me. I look around but I don't hear any beeping and am just about to walk in again when I hear leafes being shouved to the side and then I see Sylvester from 10 running out of the groth and run towards me. I stand ready when she is about to send her sword through my body I kick her in the head and jumps to the side. She drops her sword but reponds unbelieveably quickly and she jumps on me pinning me to the ground. She takes out a knife from her jacket and just about to stap me in the chest but as she is about to pierce it through my heart I roll to the side. I fell pain comming from my shoulder and I know I am a gonner. If Sylvester survives this fight I know one thing. She will kill Micah...I can't let that happen. I roll more to the side of the platform and force Sylvester to follow along cause I hold her. I take deep breath when I force us to roll off the platform. We both scream. A big branch whipes my arm which force my to let go of Sylvester. We land on the ground and I hear a big "KNACK!". I fell a large pain from my skull. "Sorry, Alex...you were always better than me..." I say. Atleast Sylvester have broken most in her body too. She will die in a minuet... BOOM!
I hear the screaming frightinly close to me. I first try to make myself flee but my couriouscity get's me. I heard two screams but only one "BOOM". I walk and see the creepy bodies lying before me. District 9 and 10 is lying before me, 9 has her head soaked in a pool of her own blood. 10 is lying in a weird way with her backbone twisted to the side. She hears me and looks up. "Please... I can't even move my legs". I get it. I take my sword out and pierce it through her chest. BOOM!
I wake up and realize that I have oversleept. I look to see Katy but she's not there. I run out fearing the worst but I can't see her anywhere. "Katy?" I say not daring to yell...no reponse...where is she? And then I hear the victory anthem and Claudius Templesmith starts to speak:
"Congratulations to the five remaining tributes of the 12-year-olds arena, ALSKA MILLER! MICAH GIGGA! STARRY TULOPE! JANE SOCHA! AND ALLAN The hovercrafts will take you out of the arena and into the new where the you and the remaining tributes from the other arena will fight to a lone victor remains! May the odds be ever in your favor!"
Katy...how did she? I don't know but a ladder appears and begin to crawl up. Half way up I look down and see Katy's blonde hair halfly coloured red by her own blood. "Goodbye, my friend...see you again later...".
13-14 year-olds arena:
Day 1: Blood on the cornucopia walls:
The light blinds me for a second when the platform rises. I close my eyes and when I open them I see a rainforest surounding all of us. I guess it will make it easier to get away... I can fell the intense heat from this place. Sweat is dripping down my face but is it just the heat, or is it the fact that I might die this afternoon? I look around and try to get a clear view of the stuff and tributes that surounds me. I a girl from 11 at my left who looks she will run from the bloodbath and a girl from... 5 I think she is ready to sprint strait in. I look to try to look around and finally decide to run to get a knife. Who knows? It might come in handy....49...48...47...46
I quickly look around to see where the other careers are placed. Jeremy is near this guy from 13 and Mirror is near the girl from nine and the girl 11. I quickly get eyecontact with Mirror so that our alliance is set but I can't get eyecontact with Jeremy cause he keeps staring at the cornucopia. I always throught he was an idiot... If I am lucky his stupidity will get him killed in the bloodbath. 36...35...34...33...
I look around. I remember that as late as yesterday I was sitting by the lunchtable in the trainingroom with Alucia, joking around with the games. She actually has really good sence of humor. But not even somebody with a comidic talent like my own would be able to calm the nerves on this day. I can die... It's like I have just realized it. I can't die today... I better run for this bloodbath. I can return after and get the stuff I want. 28...27...26...25
I look around in panic. It's takes all of my energy not to scream real loud, but I know I shouldn't. The minuet they hear my girly screaming I will loose all respect and intemidation that I people have felt about me. If they even think that I am intemidating... I take five deep breaths and look around. The bows that I really want are waay to far in but maybe I can get a knife or some dried fruit? I look around to see what the other tributes will do. The girls from 10, 11, 12 stand ready to run away. The careers and the girls from 5 and 9 are ready to run to the center. A boy from 6 looks like he wants to halfway in. I look at the timer. 14...13...12...11...
I stand ready to run to the cornucopia. Me, Azmela and Jeremy stand ready to run. I look around and see two other tribute that seems to be ready to make a sprint to the cornucopia. Yesenia from 5 and Dimitria from 9. Idiots... But maybe not Yesenia. Their was something about her that was diffrent. Not that she was better tribute -she is probaly as bad as all of the other tributes- but she didn't seemed scared or anything. 4...3...2...1...0 I dash of my plate.
I rush to knife that I saw lying really close. It was like if the gamermakers wanted me to have it. I look around and see the girl from 12 who was beside me running towards the forest. I throw the knife and it lands in her back and pins her to the ground. She screams faintly in pain and I run over to her to finish what I started. I pull the knife out of her dead body and pierce it through her neck. BOOM! It's too late to go back to the bloodbath so I decide to run into the rainforest.
I sprint in and reach the mouth of the cornucopia. I look around and see that I was the first. Slowpokes! I look around and see a big two-bladed axe. I pick it up and look up and see the boy from four, Jeremy Al with a trident in his hands. I smile cause I know we are to close to each other to throw any of our weapons. I run towards him and he swings the trident at me. I make an agile jump up in the air avoiding the trident. While falling down I lift axe over my head and cut the middle of his face open. BOOM! Blood splatters all over my body and then I fell pain coming from my calf.
I don't hesitate when my first knife miss her back and hit her calf instead. I throw the second knife a millisecond after the first one hits. I think it goes through her chest but it's hard to see when her whole body is coverd of my somewhat stupid ally, Jeremy's blood. BOOM! I look around to see that Mirror has finally arrived to the cornucopia. She takes her bow and a quiver of arrows. She looks at the death corpses coverd in Jeremy's and now also Yesenia's blood and lifts one of her eyebrows. "It's the girl from 5 and Jeremy" I say. She nods and run out of the cornucopia mouth to find other target's. I guess it's my duty then to guard the cornucopia. "Thanks, Mirror, thanks" I say annoyed.
I see the girl from two run out of the cornucopia. I drift of to my own throughts and look at her moves only. Sometimes that just happen. I see her look around in search of a target and then she finds one. I can see her eyes lock on the girl from 9 and how she throws her knife at her stomach. She screams but Mirror -her name was Mirror, right?- just leaves her there. She will die eventually but the death will be painfull...Death...Suddenly I am "back". Dammit, what a fatal mistake to drift off at a time like this. But no one noticed luckily. I guess my school teacher is more observant than my fellow tributes. BOOM! The girl from nine's dead now. I look around and see a sleeping back, a flask of Iodine and a knife. I run to get them and then look up. Mirror is running towards another girl from 8 who is running towards a backpack. The girl from 8 looks up and screams but she never fells the pain that she expected cause my knife goes through Mirror's stomach. BOOM!
I look at the guy who just saved my life. That's Eaton from 6, I know remember. I think of how he would always drift off the middle of the training sessions and just stare out into thin air for minuets before finally regaining consiounes from what was going on. "Wanna ally?" He yells. Hmm... He's not my favorite type of person I like determined people just like myself but an ally would be great. "Sure!" I yell back and pick of the backpack that almost got me killed. We run to the mountains together.
I had enough I thing and run out of the mouth of the cornucopia. Most of the action must have taken place behind it where I couldn't see cause ever since Mirror ran towards the girl from 8 I haven't seen anyone. I run to the back of the cornucopia and am surprised to see that the only girl there is Mia from 3 and Liam from 13. They have gotten some supplies and are running towards the trees. I send one of my knifes towards Liam but he dissappears behind a tree and it hits the trunk instead. "Dammit" I whisper...I am all alone. Wait? I am alone..."Mirror!" I yell...No reponse. I look at the death corpses on the field and find the black haired thin girl who was ones my ally. Her lifeless eyes are starring up into the sky and there is a knife through her stomach. I am really all alone now..
I decide to stay in the rainforest. After living in 11 for all of my life the trees almost makes it fells like I am home in orchards again...Well, except the fact that there are loads of tributes out there ready to kill me, no biggy. I climb a tree near me and is about to rest when I here a loud snap! I look down and see the girl from 10 walking right under me, under the branch I am sitting on. I remember joking with her in the trainingroom and suddenly I can't resist. I loosen up the string around my neck that holds my token, a plastic spider. This gotta be 11th time that I pulled this joke, but eigther way it's funny. Slowly I lower the spider as she walks by and put it on her shoulder. "AAAAGH!!" she screams and her arms move around in panic. I can't control myself and I begin to giggle and then laugh out loud. She looks up: "Hey! That's wasn't funny" she stands there with her hands on her hips and tries to look mad but then she gives in too and laughs with me. We laugh so loud that the tributes near defernetly know our location now, but even they will probaly think we are careers eighter way.only the careers laugh so loud in the games. We finish laughing and just sit there giggleling and I ask: "Wanna ally?". It's too late for you to kill you now, you had the chance" she answers. "Oh, you got so scared that you almost died, so maybe you really shouldn't ally with" I say. "Nah, I will take my chances" she says. "Let's get away from here we probally scared the hell out of everyone with our laughter" she says. We climb a tree and use themm to get away.
I finally reach the outskirts of the rainforest. It would provide great cover but I fear that the forest is too crowded now. I find a tree that faces out towards the meadow and climb up. I look through the stuff I got from the cornucopia. A box of nice dried fruit, a rope and a torch. Hmm... I don't know anything about traps but maybe I can figure something out. Then the anthem begins to play and the faces begins to appear: The girl from 2, the boy from 4, the girl 5, the girl 9, and the girl from 12. I am surprised that 2,4 and 5 would die. They seemed like strong competetors... I close my eyes and after hours finally drift off to sleep
Day 2: A revenge is plotted
"AAAAARG!" I wake up in the middle of the night. I look around trying to convince myself that's she not here..."She's not here, Azmela...Only in your head...only in your nightmares" I whisper softly to myself. I saw her... Mirror... She was there walking across the cornucopia field filled with corpses of herself. "Swicth with me" she said and she continiued repeatin that while walking towards me. She walking towards with a knife in her hand. She came closer and closer and I couldn't run away or scream just stand there, frozen. She was just about to pierce it through my chest when I woke up. I have to avenge her... that's my only way to stop the nightmares... I know they will keep returning until I do. I look up and see that there a parachute lying by the cornucopia. There is nothing in it just a note. Ally with Liam from 11, and revenge Mirror by killing Eaton... I saw Liam running to the south end of the forest. Wasn't that the guy that I threw a knife after? I seriously hope the mentors has made a deal with each other or else I might scare the guts out of him suddenly waking him up... I take a set of throwing knifes, a filled canteen, and a box of dried meat strips in case I should get hungry and begin to walk
I wake up to an annoying beeping sound. I look and see that a parachute has landed right beside me. Water and dried fruit! "Thank you so much" I tell the sky and quickly take a drink and eat some dried fruit. I found a good bush that works great for hiding so I guess I am good. Snap...snap...Somebody is going through the forest... I quickly grap my stuff and get inside the bush. I look out and see the girl from 3...Mia...walking past me through the forest. She diseapers through the forest and I finally allow myself to breath when I hear a loud SNAP ones again. This time it's Liam from 13 this time. Does he know that he's close to Mia? He might be pursuing her...I don't know.
I wake up and look at Aluzia who sleeps peacefully. I look down and it makes me gasp a thiny bit when I see the spider on my stomach before I realize it's Alucia's stupid plastic. "Very funny, Alucia" I say and throw it at her. She keeps lying down with but her body shakes sligthly as she giggles. "A joke isn't funny the second time you tell it" I tell her. "Just admit that you got scare for a second, there" she says and drops her sleeping facade. "Never, I wasn't scared, I was...surprised" Alucia begins to giggle ones again. "There a big diffrence" I say. "Yeah a super huge one" Alucia answer sarcasticly. "No but it all seriousness, I want to go the cornucopia" I say and change the subject. Alucia stops giggleling and look at me with serious eyes I never really throught she had. "Why?" she ask. "We got nothing and there a lot of stuff in the center". "I know that, captain obvious" Alucia says and then she looks up. "But I wouldn't call that nothing" she points at the treetops where two parachutes has been tangled in the branches. "How do we get them down?" I ask. "I am from 11, if you haven't forgetten" Alucia says and starts to climb. In less than two minuets she up there and is untangleling the gifts. "Catch!" she yells as one of them fall. I get grab the it and and the other and then Alucia swiftly climbs back down. We lok inside and see that there is soup and a box of dried fruit. "We still have to go" I say. "We need weapons". "Hmm... I guess you are right..." Alucia answers and we drink some of the soup and head to the cornucopia.
As I walk I hear someone running... Towards me I think... I look to my left and see the girl from three coming rushing out of the bushes and praticly runs into me. I grap her arms which is coverd in blood by a deep wound and hold her out in front of me. "Now district 3... Tell me nice and slowly who you were running from" I say whispering. Her whole body shivers in fear and she tries to make me let go but that only make me hold her wound even tighter. She screams loud. Then she strench her arm and points. A second later a boy... Liam runs out of the bush. He holding a knife in his hand and stands still when he sees me. He coverd in blood, but I think is hers. He looks pretty creepy and I have to remind myself about his kind and weak apperance in the group training. "You're Azmela, right?" he ask and district 3 sobs. "Yeah, you must be Liam" I say. "Long time, no see" I say thinking about the bloodbath, about how I almost killed him. "You want the kill?" I ask. "Nah, you can have it" Liam says and I take one of knifes and slidt district 3 throat. BOOM! "You had a cornucopia you wanted me to see?" Liam ask and I nod. "Follow me" I say and we walk back to the cornucopia.
"No ones there" I grin and looks at the cornucopia where there is no living soul nearby other than us. "Wait..." says Aideen. "Somebody might be hiding and waiting for us to come out". "Hmm..." I think a little and then take off my jacket, fill it with leafes and branches so that it looks bigger and throw it as far as I can. I flies pretty far before hitting ground. No knifes or arrows flies through the air to hit the "tribute". "Wow, you gotta have IQ of atleast 30 to come up with that plan." says Aideen "I bet you even know how to open a door". "Well... Considering I was the only was of us that came up with anything so I guess I have a higher IQ than you" I answer. "No ones here, Aideen" I say and to proof it I walk out on the field to get my jacket. "Nope! No arrows and no throwing knifes, and not even a single spear!" I yell and finally Aideen steps out of the bush and we walk to the cornucopia. I look through the supplies and find some neosprin, five spears, a first aid kit, and two pair of nightvision goggles. "Let's take this, and get away" I say. "Wait...Alucia, there are no one around to kills us, right?" Aideen says in a weird tune. "Yes..." I answer not knowing where she's going with this. "So if we where to burn down all of the supplies, hypothetical speaking, no one would be here to do anything about it, right? Hypothetical speaking of course" she says. "Well, hypothetical speaking, then yes" I say and throw a box of matches to her. 10 minuets after we are running away from the cornucopia while the burned smell and the black smoke is spreading from the inside of the cornucopia. We reach to hide the bush we hid before in when Azmela and the boy from 13 enter the cornucopia field. We watch as Azmela jaws goes all the way down to the ground and her eyes widen to the siece of a basketball.
I run to the mouth of the cornucopia in an attemp to save atleast something but it's too late. Trying to go into the cornucopia would be foolish, and you would most certain be chocked by the fire. "So this was the famous cornucopia you would show me?" Liam ask. "Shut up!" I tell him annoyed cause he sound like he's amused. "We ccan't stay here, there's no cover and there is no advantage in staying. Did you see where Eaton went?" I ask. "Emm...the guy who killed District 2? He ran to the mountains, I think, with District 8" . "Then let's go!" I say and begin to walk towards the mountains. "But why?" Liam ask me. "I just have to. If you don't go with I have a knife with your name on it".
I sit down and drink the water my sponsor sent me this morning. I read the note that attached to the silverparachute. He has a tendensy to zone out. A tendensy is kinda underistimating it. He's sitting right now looking at the horison, his throughts are probally at least fivehungred miles away for here. I look at him and that's when I hear it. Rocks that are being kicked recklessly. Someone is comming... We hit behind some big rocks so they haven't seen us yet however they are comming closer and closer and soon will. "Eaton" I whisper but he doesen't react. "Eaton!" I whisper again but he doesen't react. "Eaton, please! Come to your sence! You have to! Please!" but he doesen't react. I slap him and finally he react. "They are comming!" I whisper. "Who?" Eaton ask. I look from behind the rock. "District 1 and 13. They are armed" I answer. "It's my fault... You shouldn't have stayed, Joane" he says. "Here is what we are gonna do. I will move out and throw my knifes and you will run far away meanwhile" he's says. "What? No!" I protest. "Joane, it's the least I can do. It's my fault...Now, run!" he yells and steps out from the rock and throws a knife. I get up and finally after just standing there for a couple of seconds my survival instinct set in and I run.
I finally see Joane run and know that it's okay now. I jump to the side just avoiding a knife from Azmela. I send a knife after Azmela but she jumps to the side. I quickly send my other knife flying and it goes through Liam's chest. He screams an incredibly girly, highpitched scream and fall to ground. "Jeez dude you scream like a little girl!" Azmela says, BOOM! And then I fell pain coming from my stomach. I look down and see that another throwing knife that has burried deep into my stomach. "You killed Mirror...Now it's your turn. And know that I will do my best to kill your little girlfriend from 8" she says and then throws a knife through my chest BOOM!
We sit in a little clearing with all of our spears and other stuff from the cornucopia. I am almost abour to drift of into sleep when I hear the victory fanfare playing in full volume. Alucia who had drifted off awakes and then Claudius Templesmith starts to speak:
"Congratulations to the five remaining tributes of the 13-14 year olds arena, AZMELA PARKER! KAT RIMAN! JOANE BRISCOLL! AIDEEN CORMICK! AND ALUCIA ZONDER! The hovercrafts will take you out of the arena and into the new where the you and the remaining tributes from the other arena will fight to a lone victor remains! May the odds be ever in your favor!"
Two hovercrafts appears on the sky and ladders is appearing. "Well...I guess this is goodbye..." Alucia says and looks at me. "I guess it was quite pointingless to burn of the supplies" I say trying to cheer her up. "It was worth it for Azmela's face!" Alucia says and her old lighthearted self is back. I grap onto the ladder and it goes up. Alucia grabs the other ladder and is lifted up in her hovercraft. As soon as I am in an avox walks over to me and sting me with a cannula and I faint.
Day 1: The horn of plenty for us all
As the template slowly rises I fell a strong wind. I breath in swallow a bunch of sand. I take my arena jacket and pull ot so that the neck part part covers my mouth. A sandstrom is rising and it makes it impossible to see anything. I guess it's the gamemakers to blame. They want to be disoriented when we step of the plate. I turn around 180 degress...That should be the way out I think. I look back and I can barely see the numbers on the countdown even though they are bright neon orange... 51...50...49...48...I think
The sand is everywhere. I take my hand to my mouth and try to breath through my nose but that just make sand come up through my nose, and I sneeze. I guess I will have to use my fingers to protect my throat from the sand... It's impossible to see anything through the strom. "Dammit" I whisper and get even more sand in my mouth. 42...41...40...39...
I open my jacket and drag my t-shirt up till my mouth. Finally I can breath, and take two deep breath before finally getting my breath down to normal. Although it's annoying the sandsstorm is perfect to get away with. Perfect for me. But I know the gamemakers... There is over 75% chance that the sandstorm will faint out 5 seconds before the timers stop so that the careers won't have such a disadvantage. Of course they will stop it, the capitol love the careers and would be offended if they had such a disadvantage. I turn around 180 degrees, which should be the way out of the bloodbath and stand ready to sprint away...32...31...30...29...
So annoying... I had hope that I could have decided which stuff I would pick up before the gong would sound, but guess not. I will just have to go with my instinst. I try to look through the sand, I can see a siluette nearby... A tall person... Maybe a career...and someone short, with long hair... so it's gotta be girl since there were no boys with long hair in our category... I look out and try to see the stuff on the ground but I can't...16...15...14...13...
The strom grow faint and I can finally see. Without the breeze colling my body I can fell that the temperature in this arena is extremely high. I can see more and more so I look around to see which tributes are near me. The guy from 13 and the girl from 11. I look at the careers and nodd when I get eye contact with Olive who is spitting sand out in her hand and Thomas. We all get ready to sprint. 9...8...7...6
I finally find a bow in the beginning of the mouth of the cornucopia...good. I look at the counter ready to sprint...2...1..0 I dash off my plate and run as fast as I can into the mouth and grap the bow and a quiver. I look up and see that the career and some other tributes are nearing so I run out and load the bow. I see the girl from 10 running in and I shoot but she reaches in to the cornucopia before I hit her. I look around when I see the girl from 9 running to get a backpack but my arrow goes through her chest before she reaches it BOOM! I look around and run towards the mountains
I finally reach the swords and take one up. I look and see that Thomas from four throwing a spear at me. I jump out of the way and run towards him. He tries grap a trident but my sword goes through his back before he can reach it. BOOM! "You shouldn't unarm against an agile opponent" I tell him. And then run towards the the swamp area.
I find three knifes in the middle of the cornucopia field. I look up to try to find a victim. I was taught that I should go after the fleeing tributes first and safe the ones that are paticipating in the bloodbath after. I look around and see the girl from three and the boy from 13 running in oppersit directions. I can get both easily and I throw the first knife at the girl but in the last second she looks behind her almost like she knew it was comming and jumps out of the way...creepy. I throw my next knife at the boy and it burries deep into his skull, BOOM!
My hands reaches out and grap a backpack when something hits me and pins me to the ground. It's that girl from seven. "You picked the worst person to mess with" I say and remember that my brother Darren said to me the first time we had a family wrestling and I attacked him. I use my arms to force her to the left and we roll around on the ground trying to punch each other. And that when I see it. The knife just near us. District 7 sees it a second after me and tries to reach for it too but I grap it before her and quickly stab her in the forehead, BOOM! I drag the knife out of her forehead, grap the backpack that I dropped and run strait to the swamp.
I pick up a knife, a sleeping bag and some poison. I look up and see that the girl has an arrow on her bow pointing at me. She realizes the arrow and I jump out of the way the last second before, and it hits me. I get turn my back and run towards the mountains, when I fell pain going through my body coming from my foot. I look down and see that an arrow has gone right through my ancle. I get within behind a big rock before the next arrow hits me. "Damned" I whisper and use the knife to cut a piece off my jacket. I tie it around my ancle and carefully walk over to a cave nearby while trying not to walk on my ancle.
I grap a backpack and then get out of there. I look around trying to find some kind of forest but the only place with actual plants are meadow and swamp. The meadow is way to dangerous and I never really liked swamps...they seem so rotten, so I decide to run to another familiar area. A little village of small houses. I look inside the smallest one far away from the cornucopia and to my pleasure I see a bed inside of there. Never throught I was gonna have an okay night sleep here in the arena...
I find a willow tree near the swamp in the meadow. There is a little group of them and it's hard to see me in there. I try settle down and try ignore my growling stomach. The anthem starts to play so I look up at the sky and see the faces of the boy from 4, the girl from 7, the girl from 9 and the boy from 13. The career surprises me and I know that the boy from 13 had a sister... Poor her, but I guess she already knew that they couldn't both win...
Day 2: Alliances are formed
Beep...Beep...Beep...Beep... Something interferce my sleep and I wake up. Where am I...? I fell pain coming from my ancle and then I remember. The dressing has quite a lot of blood in after I pulled the arrow out. Normally you're are supposed to leave it in and let doctor drag it out, but I doubt that I will find any in the arena. I look to investegate the beeping and see that a silverparachute holding medicine has landed in front of my cave. I pour some on it and fells better imediatly. Some rest on it will make it okay tomorrow so I save the rest of the medicine for later.
"Wake up, Olive!" I shook her and she finally awakes. I guess speaking softly isn't an option. "Stop it, Dylan, I am awake!". "Dylan?" I ask "Your brother?". "Yeah...He always wakes me up...Not that it matters. Where should we start?" she says and look around in the arena. "The village is close by" I answer. "That's fine with me" she says and drink some soup and get her weapons.
I sit with box of dried fruit and open it. Among the dried fruit there is a fresh, shinning red apple in the middle. My family can't send me any notes but this apple sends more than a thousands words: Eyes on the price, Layla, eyes on the price. 'Good job, Layla, I taugth you well. You stole my line, but I guess your not creative enough to come up with your own. Wow that was so cool can you teach me that? I take a bite of the apple and fell as she sweet taste spread in my mouth just like the apples from home. I decide to climb a tree to get an overview and that's when I see that the girl from 10 is right near me...Hmmm...Maybe I should go pay a visit...
I wake up. How many hours of sleep did I get? One...two... Even if I had 3 hours it wouldn't be any better cause the girl from 9's face is haunting my dreams... I didn't even know her name yet, still I killed her... I can't really believe it. It all seems like a big nightmare. "You have to do this, Kennedy...For Mandy" but it doesen't fell very convinsing. I get up and start to walk. I need to find a cave, cause rocks really don't provide any cover. I walk a little before finding one. There a rock blogging it and it's very dark inside but I finally pull myself together and walk in. I put an arrow on my bowstring just to be sure. I crawl in and here someone gasp. It takes a second before I can see the boy lying before me. I am just about to send my arrow flying when I realize what condition he's in. There's a vound going right through his ancle and he is unarmed and then suddenly it become impossible for me to even keep the bow lifted. I lower it and put the arrow back in the quiver. "Sorry" I say. "Well... I am not really sure if you should say sorry for the fact that you didn't kill someone" he answers. "So...I guess I only have to choices now...Run or ally...". "I would prefer the second one" he says before I reach to think about it. "Fine" I say and smile.
"SLAM!" I hear the door to my house go up and know that I have visitors. The careers probaly. I get the slingshot and know that there's no way to escape. The only way to survive this is to fight my way out... I probaly won't survive but I might as well try. I hide in the empty closet. It's a somewhat obvious spot but I am pretty sure that the tribute will freeze for atleast a splidt second when the open the door and that's my chance. I load my slingshot and stand ready to shoot when I hear them enter the bedroom. "No ones here, Cheerish" I hear a voice. "Maybe they are hiding" someone replys. And then the doors to the closet opens. The a brown haired girl stands frozen for just a splidt second and use my chance. I quickly load and shoot three rocks, one for each eye, and one for the bloodvein on the head. Then I fell pain coming from my chest. I look down and see the knife that has been throw to my chest with deadaccuracy...BOOM!
I fall down on my knees in an attemp to help Olive but that it's already way to late. She's still alive but instead of eyes she has two bloody holes with a rock in the middle. Blood runs down her chin kinda like tears. She's scream her lungs sore felling a great pain. Then blood splatters up in my face and I realize that the last rock cut a hole in the main bloodvein on the side of the head. She will die of bloodloss in a minuet yet still I try to carry her away from the village back to the cornucopia field. I am halfway when I hear the BOOM! and know that I have failed. "Goodbye, Olive" I tell her and leave her body.
I quickly get my stuff after seeing Cheerish from 1 drag away Olive from 2 with blood almost exploding from her head. I wait until I am sure they are not comming back right now and then sprint out. I know that if I stay behind the houses and make sure that they are blocking my view to the cornucopia then Cheerish won't see me. I doubt that Olive will ever be able to see again considering that her eyes were more two deep holes of blood than anything else. I look around for a new place knowing that there's atleast 50% chance of Cheerish comming back to make sure that there are no tributes she has missed. I look and see the watchtower in the far end of the arena. It's so tall that tributes won't be able to see me from the ground so it's pretty much perfect except the fact that it's see able from everywhere. But right now I am not picky and I always escape to another area when dusk falls.
I list on my tiptoes and see district 10 sitting calmly on a fallen, rotten tree. Her sword is leaning against a tree five meters away... I am gonna make sure she doesen't get within reach of it. I hold my knife ready and I list up on her and then jump, knocking her off the treetrunk and pinning her to the ground. She's in chock for a second but then reach out and make an handlock that make me drop the knife. It rolls over the ground hopelessly far away. And then the fight begins. We roll around trying to pin each other to the ground but are both just as strong as the other and non of us succesfully hold the other one down more than a couple of seconds. We fight for minuets non of us giving up until we both get so tried that we end up trying to slap each other, fighting like kindergarden children. It kinda reminds me of how Leon would try to attack us when we all brawl together. We kinda let him punch us cause it doesen't really hurt and it's quite cute to watch. We end on both falling to the ground totally exhausted. "You know what?" District 10 says haltingly cause she's still gasping for air. "We can either recover, fight again, recover again and figth again all day and pretty much continiue forever" she pauses and takes some deep breaths. "Or we could realize that this doesen't really leads us anywhere and..." she pauses again to catch her breath. "Or we could ally, maybe" I end sentences for her. "I think I will stick with option two" she says. She looks at me. "You a pretty dang good fighter, you know" I say and pause to catch my breath one more time. "You fit perfectly as a Cypress". "That's your family?" she ask. "Yeah, we always have a family brawl before the reapings". We keep lying down and use the rest of the day telling stories from our life. It's funny that I was planning to kill the person next to me and now I know most of her backstory...
I sit eat some of the dried fruit that my sponsor sent me, waiting for the anthem to begin. I am quite courious to see the two who have died today cause here in my tree in the swamp it seems to be quite light today and I haven't seen any tributes. Then on que the anthem starts to play and the girl from 2's face appears on the sky...That means there only one career left...right? And then the girl from 11.... That means that only one more has to die...
Day 3: This is gonna be fun
I shook Layla gently. "What?" she mutters. "Not now, Lyle. I am sleeping" I hear her mutter and smile. "Are you sure it's Lyle?" I ask for fun and she opens her eyes. "Asuka...was time is it? Why did you awake me?" she ask. "I don't know. Somewhere near dawn?" I say. "I have a plan. Since all but one career died, Cheerish would be sleeping alone, unprotected, in the cornucopia as we speak" . "That's sounds nice" says Layla and get's up. I get my sword and together we sneak out of the svamp and over to the cornucopia. We can see her laying outside the cornucopia like nothing was wrong. "This is too easy" I whisper and sneak over when I step on a branch. "SNAP!". Cheerish sits up and her eyes lock with mine. She reaches for something on the ground and then I fell pain from my right shoulder. The knife she threw is perfectly placed in a hit that won't kill me just yet. The pain makes crumple together on the ground. She get's up and walks over to me. I look for Layla but she's no where to be seen in the outskirts of the swamp. Did she betray me? Cheerish sits down on my stomach and has a little razor sharp knive in her hand. "This is gonna be fun, 10" she says as she considers where she should start. Then while pinning my arm down she takes the knive and let it gently strike the beginning of my finger. A little scratcth is cut the blood begins to fall slowly. Layla has betrayed me... It makes me even more mad than the fact that I am gonna die. I hope she dies a painfull death. Cheerish is just about to make the first cut to cut of one of my fingers when the weigth is suddenly removed from my body. I look and see that Layla is sitting pinning Cheerish to the ground while holding Cheerish hand in a handlock. "No, district 1...This is gonna be fun" she says and she puts a little more pressure on the armlock which makes Cheerish drop the knive. While keeping Cheerish to the ground she takes the knive and pierce it through Cheerish chest. BOOM!
"Stay right there, Asuka!" I yell an sprint to the cornucopia. I reach the pile of medicine and find a little canteen with a note on it saying: "Instant relief" and a red box with a white cross on it. I get and quickly run back to Asuka who is bleeding frigthtingly much from her shoulder. I take the flask and pour the clear liquir on her wound. She breaths a sigh of relief. I am not a doctor but from the other hunger games that I have watched this should be the way to proceed. I open the box and tage some dressing and wrap it around her shoulder and help her get up. "Let's stay away from action right now" I tell Asuka as I support her and get her back into the swamp. We find a big bush with a spot inside it where the branches don't reach in and I drag her in there. We are quiet for awhile and then I break the silence. "Did you think I had left you? You seemed surprised when I attacked" I say. "To be honest...yes... you were no where to be seen and you had no weapon, cause you left your knife in our camp . I couldn't blame you if you had left me, really, still I got to admit I was quite mad at you at that point" she says. "Can't blame you. I hid when heard that you stepped on a branch. I knew that if i were to attack I would only have one chance. And I needed the element of surprise. I tried it ones on Darren and I actually got some good hits in..." I stop before I begin to remerneces to much. "I would like to hear" Asuka says. "We don't have anything better to do right now".
This svamp...it seems...dead...somehow. I don't know what it is...the smell?...the colors?...the air? Somehow, I know it's a good idea to get out of here. I get up and back my stuff begin to walk away from the swamp and towards the moutains.
I wake up beside Kennedy a notice that something is missing somehow...wait, what? The pain from my ancle is completyly gone and wound seems to have healed very well. I move around my foot trying it again but still I fell no pain. Kennedy mutters and rols around and suddenly she kicks and scream. "Kennedy?!" I say but she keeps on rolling around trying to shake the nightmare off. I grap her and hold her tight and she calms down and wake up. "She keeps comming back... the nightmares won't stop!" she begins to sob and then cry. "Kennedy, it's okay. You're okay" I say and hold her even thighter. I fear that she's beginning to grow on me. I get up and look out glad to finally get some fresh air after lying down for what seems forever. I get up and walk around a little and look back at Kennedy. "I will stay and guard you from behind" she says with a little smile on her face again. "Enjoy your "freedom"". I get up and walk around a rock and is greeted with Zil who has tripped and fall down on the ground trying to cross a slippery rock. He doesen't even reach to look up before I pull out my knife and pierce it through the back of his head. BOOM! I look up and see that Kennedy is looking at me like I am guilty or something.
Where is Zil? Was told to find him and ally and I remember that he ran to the swamp. I am there now and I really don't like this place. Has Zil been here the whole time? It seems too supicious....maybe Zil left? I look up and see that an aligator like mutt is nearing me from the water. I look and see that there are atleast 100 of them. I turn my back drop my stuff and run without looking back. I jump over treetrunks and rots and reach out on the cornucopia field. I look behind and see that Asuka from 10 and Layla from 12 comming out from swamp. They are quite slow since Layla have to support Asuka apparently. We stand a little just looking at each other wondering what to do and then the victory fanfare starts to play:
"Congratulations to the five remaining tributes of the 15-16 year olds arena, ALICE WILLIAMS! KENNEDY MELIKOW! BRANN CLATCH! ASUKA ONAT! AND LAYLA CYPRESS! The hovercrafts will take you out of the arena and into the new where the you and the remaining tributes from the other arena will fight to a lone victor remains! May the odds be ever in your favor!"
Three ladders fall down from three hovercraft and I climb up. As soon as I am inside a avox walks over to me with a cannula with some kind of drug. She takes my arms, inject the drug and then I faint.
17-18 year-olds arena
Day 1: A crowded bloodbath
As the plate slowly I am meet with a terrinble smell...here smells like a cow's shi...No I don't even wanna think about it. We are standing around a big shiny cornuopia in the middle of a village...is this inspired by district 11? I look around but the girl from 11 doesen't seem glad about this new arena. I look around in an attempt to find my allies and see Lion. We make eyecontact, and I smile a little, kinda flirting. Lion is such a pansy for beautiful girls around his age. Then he faintly points left. I look over and see that the boy from 10 who is sending me a deathglare. "You just try that" I say and make ready to sprint to cornucopia...47...46...45...44
I search the ground around the cornucopia carefully. I really wish that guns were allowed in the hunger games, but I as long it can snipe I am good. The small training that guerilla-soldiers get we learn more than just using a gun. I look around and finally see something usefull, a crossbow. We only had a few lessons about how to use it but you really only need to know how to reload and shoot if you already are good at aiming. It can cost me my life to get...but who knowes? It might save my life too...35...34...33....32
I look around at the tributes. The careers and 6, 9, 12, and 13 seems to want to run into the cornucopia...stupid... The others seems to want to run too, just not that far in. This bloodbath is gonna be quite crowded, so I guess I will skip it. My sponsor can send me something later. I look around to see where to run to. There are 4 streets going from the village center out to the meadow. It's kinda weird suddenly the road just stops and is replaced by an never ending meadow. I don't think they would just have a meadow and nothing else though, that's way to boring for the gamemakers. I think I will up at the northen street and see what lies beyond it...25...24...23...22...
I search around in the outskirts in an attemp to find something usefull. It's looks like most people are gonna run to the mouth of the cornucopia so it's pretty save anyway...untill they reach their weapons atleast. Fast in, fast out, that will be my tactic. 14...13...12...11...
I look at the counter ready to run strait to the cornucopia. My alliance is set, and I am ready. I hope Olive felt that way too, when the gong was about to rung in her arena. She could be dead now, actually...She could dead. "GONG", Wait, What?! I was distracted my Olive, and missed it! "Dammit" I say and get down from my pedestal several seconds after everyone else.
I reach to mouth of the cornucopia and quickly look around for a trident. I find one run over to it and grap it, and turn around and see the boy from 10 with a sword in his hand over his head ready to splidt my body in two. It's too late to even try to block it. I scream and he's just about to hit me when the tip of a sword goes through his stomach. The blood splatters out all over my face. Lion's is standing behind him holding the sword pierced through his body. BOOM! "You make good bait" Lion says and smile. "My special talent" I say ironicly and smile.
I finally reach the crossbow. I am on the backside of the cornucopia so the careers can't see me, fotunately. It's already loaded and I stand up and look. That's when I see the girl from 12 running towards a sword near me. She looks up and screams when she sees my loaded crossbow pointing at her face, and makes a jump in an attemp to reach the sword. She lands beside it, her hand only few centimeters from the handle. My arrow is placed in the middle of her face, right between the eyes, BOOM!. I pick up a quiver and run to the right street.
I pick up a big backpack near the center of the cornucopia when I am pinned to the ground by Banak from 9. He has a knife ready to stab me but I reach placing the backpack between us like shield before he hits me. I drag it away from us before he can reach pulling the knife out of it and then it's just us. He's strong but it's now that the many fights I have had with the young wildogs helps. I quickly flex my head up and bite one of his arms that pins me. I remember I've used this trick many times. He screams over the sudden pain and lifts his hand while putting less pressure on me with his other arm. I use the oppertunety to roll around so that I am the one pinning him to ground while still keep my jaws closed around his arm. I reach for the knife in the backpack and quickly pierce it through the back of his head. BOOM! I get up, pull the knife out of his head, grap the backpack, and run to south street.
I get my hand on a backpack and put it on my back. I look up and see that the guy from 1 has stopped trying to chase that strange girl from 6. She reached to get out of the streets so he stops in the outskirts of the city center and he turns around. We look at each other and just stand there in the chaos for one second...And then he runs towards me with his sword ready to strike. I turn around and runs towards the mouth of the cornucopia when I finally see the weapon that can save me... a bow with a quivver of arrows. I make a sharp left turn grap and load the bow, turn around and shoot. He's is less than 3 feet away when my arrow goes through his stomach.
I look left when I see the girl from 11 shooting an arrow through Lion's stomach. I turn from the girl from 3, who was my original target and throw my trident. It goes through her head and she screams half of a scream before she falls down on the ground. BOOM! It's got to be painfull and for that I am glad. I let go of my trident and run into the cornucopia trying to find a instant relief. I know that it probally won't help...but I have to try for Lion. I dig my hands through the pile of supplies knowing that I am letting many tributes get away from the bloodbath...I hope Dylan gets someone...Where are they? Where are they? I finally find a small glass flask and I rush to his body and take the top off, I am just about to pour it on his massive wound. BOOM! And I know I am too late... I hold his death hand tight. Even though we only knew each other for short time, Lion is the reason why I am alive. "I am sorry" I whisper and begin to cry while sitting by my dead ally.
I just picked up a flask up poison and a box of dried meat when I see Dylan from two running towards me. Better get going! I turn around and run to the left street. I look back and see that Dylan can't even keep up. He turns around and run back to the cornucopia "Better luck next t-!" I am yell when I run into something...someone. I look up and see that the boy from seven...Drey, I think. We lie there for a second frozen by panic when he get's up and takes his axe. "No no no no!" I say fast and take a hand to my face. What a pathetic defense. "Pl...pl...ple...please...al...al...allies?" I say. The panic makes me stumble across my own words. I look at him. He looks like he is doubting me...like he can't trust me... I don't think I can trust him eigther but really fighting him will mean certain death for me. "Pl...pl...pl...please...don...don't" I say. But really what should stop him? "Fine" he says...wait, what? He looks at me waiting for me to get up. I try but my legs are shaking so much that I fall down again. I finally get up and together we run to a field of corn.
After my huge failoure with district 8, I run back and see that every single tribute is gone... I run to the cornucopia in the hopes of finding Talluhla and Lion. I find them but it's far from good. Talluhla is sitting by Lion's death body, crying her eyes out, for a boy she has barely meet. It's a small miracle in it self that someone didn't decide to get an easy kill on her. "Please, Talluhla..." I really don't know what to tell her so I just say what comes to mind. "He's gone there is nothing you can do!". "I know" she yells at me back and keeps crying. I look through the pile of supplies when I find two dishes and a canteen filled with still warm soup. I pour it into the dish and put it in front of her, then I prepare two sleepingbags and blanket's and hope that she will stop crying eventually.
I choose a big field of grain to settle down in. It's quite nice here actually, and I haven't seen any other tributes nearby. I am hungry and have used most of time in the field trying to pell the corn and eat them but you would need atleast a 1000 graincores to be somewhat full. I am startle when the anthem of Panem begins and I look at the sky...The boy from 1... The boy from 9...The boy from 10...the girl from 11...the girl from 12... The only one I am actually surprised to see is the tribute from 1...
Day 2: And the final five is found
I wake up very early. I look over at Drey who's still sleeping. I could do it... It would be so easy... But I know I can't. I still remember when he was standing with an axe ready to kill me. I know I owe him my life... I don't know what to do but I hope someday to pay of the dept. I can't help but thinking if I had been in his situation...would I have allied or killed... I am actually not sure...
I wake up early as always. In the pack of wildogs we never really sleept for that long and you had to learn how to get up early so right now I actually it fells like I have sleept in although morning mist is still lingering in the air. I shake my head almost like the cubs would when they awakened. Ever since the bloodbath I think I am turning into the beast-like human I ones were. I get up and look and see that I have been stung badly at my leg by some kind of wasp... I look and see that there is a tree with trackerjackers close by. One of them must have flewn near me and stung me. I get up. I remember the smell of lavender in the air and I know how that little flower can remove pain if it's not too great. I am actually lucky that I haven't been stuck enough to begin halucinating...That would be bad! I walk out of the forest and fell a breeze from the west carring a small scent of lavender. I begin to run in the direction staying away from the city
"We should go and hunt" I hear someone saying. No... I don't wanna wake up. I was dreaming about Leon. I am still surprised how much he meant to me really... "Come on, Tallulah!"... It's probaly Dylan... I would recornise his annoying voice from anywhere. He's really not that bad but sometimes he's just really cocky so you want to strangle him. However instead of straggleling him -which really would probally end up with me dying- I get up grap my trident. "Where should we start?" I ask. "The cornfield, it's the tricky one, then we can take care of the others later".
Hungry...thristy...hungry...thirsty... I can't really focus on anything. If I throught that it was bad starving then try to starve while dehydrating aswell. I look at the sky desperately to see if any parachutes should fall but the sky is dead empty... Atleast I am hidden...maybe I can outlive them...but probally not without water...
I put the flowers in my mouth, chew, spit the mass out and rub it on my sting. It fells so much better already but I don't like this place. No cover or hidingplaces... I can hear it. The sound of foodsteps walking across the earth. I close my eyes in an attemp to try and hear which direction the tributes is comming from. After some seconds I locate the direction and look left to see District...3...I think walking away from me...perfect. I sneak without making a single sound up and then stab my knife through her stomach. BOOM!
"Down!" I say and September get's down on all four with me. I point and her eyes follows the direction of my arm and see that the careers are walking towards us. They will see us a matter of seconds, so there is no escape. September put on the claws that her mentor sent me and I get's my axe. "The problem is the girl and her trident" I tell her. "She only has two, so I guess she won't unarm herself by throwing both". "I will take the girl. The boy is too strong for me anyway" September says. I look at her knowing the risk she takes. "You don't have t-" I say but she interoups me. "Yes I do. Better surprise them...3...2...1!". We both stand at the same time and run opposit direcctions yet still running towards them. I look at September who just barely avoid Talluhla's trident and then look up to ready to fight Dylan.
I finally get close enough. Talluhla swings the trident at me and I jump backwards. I need to get in close I want attack but her trident swings in defensive paterns away from her body forcing me to keep my distance. We circle around each other for little while when I finally get an idea. Slowly and unoticeable I loosen the straps that from left claw is tied around my fingers and when it's loosen enough I quickly throw the claws at Talluhla. She looks up and jumps out of the way. I jump as soon as she does and get close and then pierce my claws through her skull. BOOM! I look over at Drey and see that his axe has been cut in half and that District 2 stands with his sword. Drey barely see me and send me a sad smile. I run and jump pierces my claws through 2's shoulder when he's just about to pierce it through Drey's stomach. He drops his sword and Drey rolls away in the last second before his sword goes through his chest. I drag my claws out his shoulder and quickly pierce it through his skull. BOOM! I look down and see that the sword landed in Drey's upper arm. "Hold on for a little while longer Drey! They will fix your arm on the hovercraft!" I say while tying my jacket around his arm like a dressing.
I read the note yet again to make sure I didn't misunderstood something: Revenge Haru... I know it's true....My brother's dead. I get my crossbow ready and aim for district 5 stomach. She haven't seen me but I saw her camp long ago and after I read the note I decided to kill her. The anger is running through my veins and I just about to pull the trigger when Claudius Templesmith voice burst out into the arena:
"Congratulations to the five remaining tributes of the 17-18 year olds arena, CRIMSON GORSMITH, ECHO LAVYATHIN, DREY BLAKE, SEPTEMBER ROLLO, AND SUKI SAKURA! The hovercrafts will take you out of the arena and into the new where the you and the remaining tributes from the other arena will fight to a lone victor remains! May the odds be ever in your favor!"
I know that they will reveive her if I kill her now so I put the crossbow down. Two hovercrafts flies over us and lowers two ladders reavealing my position. She looks up and see how close I were to kill her. "I will get you next time" I say coldly and grap the ladder
Final arenaThe final arena of the 100th annual hunger games will be a dessert like waste land. Tributes will need to eat and drink more often than normal cause the heat takes energy and tributes without water might go insane from the dehydration.
Ruined City: A large area filled with ruins almost shaped like a labyrinth. The walls provides good cover and it's hard to see far without the walls blocking the view. There is good hiding places around and a well in the middle of the city that still works. There are a few mutts in shape as cougars and wolfs that roam around in the ruins but there are not many. The only way to get any kind of food is shooting the mutts which is extremely dangerous.
Savannah: A large field with quite tall golden grass. You can see tributes from far away and there are not that many hiding places unless you are good at finding them. There is an oasis for water and plenty of wildlife that you can shoot to get meat. There are some lion mutts and gepard mutts. The lion is strong but not too fast and they can't climb. The gepard can run very fast and can climb but isn't that strong. There are a few trees around.
Village: There is a little village with around ten houses in. They are not the best hidingplaces since it's quite obvious but there is a bed and a stove. There is a well in the village but it's very dangerous to go in to get water there if there is more than one tribute in the area. There is no mutts in the area itself but the mutts from the savannah or the mountains might venture in. There is no way to get food in the village.
Mountain with tree: There is big lone mountain to the side. The mountain is overgrown by trees and is really more a forest than an actual mountain. There is a small lake on the summit and there is lots of wildlife and berries for food. The trees provides a lot of cover and there is many hidingplaces aswell.
The rest of the arena is a dessert.

"Let the bloodbath of final arena of the 100th annual hunger games begin!"
Day 1: I am not a physco...I think
The platform slowly rises and I am greeted with extreme warmth. The sun is shining bright and I imediatly know what kind of arena this is. A dessert. If I know the gamemakers, then it won't just be a dessert there will be some areas around aswell. we reach the pedestal and I look around. A savannah is to my left and I know that the grass will provide a good place to hide. However I am not sure if I want to leave the bloodbath just yet. Since I didn't get to keep my items from the first arena I know that I am low on sponsor money. Then I see a electricity generator lying somewhat near the cornucopia and a piece of wire is close by too. That's what I will go for...49...48...47...46...
I look around trying to find Aideen. I see her and we get eyecontact. I pull out my plastic spider and hold it up. We both know what that means cause it was my way of asking: "Do you want to ally with me?" when I first lowerd the spider down on her shoulders. She smiles, nodds and then yells: "No joke is funny the second time you hear it!"refering to my spider. She receives mutiple looks from the other tributes almost like she was insane. "My jokes are so good that you could tell them a thousand times and people would still laugh!" I yell back at her and people look at me like I am insane...35...34...33...32...
I look around for Layla. After the last arena I own her my life...I want to protect her for it. I find her and she barly point to the middle of the cornucopia field so that I know what her plan is. I point strait to the cornucopia so she knows that I want the swords and then I look at the savannah like telling her to meet me there. She nods and I make ready to sprint...25...24...23...22..
What?! Only two careers survived and that was the puny 12-year-olds from 1 and 4? I don't get. They must have been really bad, the others, but I guess they weren't worthy to be my allies... I look at the small girls... The girl from 4 seems puny and not worthy for an alliance but the girl from 1 seems good. Also she volunteered. I look at her and we get eyecontact. We both nod. Then I make ready to sprint for the cornucopia...14...13...12...11...
I stand ready to sprint half in. I am not sure about that girl, September. I remember that my mentor telling me not to trust her. I guess it's over, our alliance. I look at the timer...4...3...2...1...0! I jump of my pedestal and sprint in.
I feel a slight feeling of deja-vu when I reach the crossbow and take it, looking for a tribute to shoot. The girl from 5...Crimson, I think is my main target so I look for her first. I see her an load but she reaches away from the cornucopia field up to the ruined city before I reach to shoot her. Dammit... I look around and then see the girl from 6...she will be an alright compentation, I guess so I load and shoot her. The arrow lands in her forehead with dead accuration that only a trained sniper would be able to make. BOOM! It's creepy how I fell better when I kill tributes. Like my brother is advenged every time I get a kill. I get a quiver and then run to the ruined city.
I look around and finally find a deadly double bladed axe and take it. I look up and see that Brann from 6 is charsing at me. I keep my axe ready and jump out of the way as he swings a small sword at me. He tries ones more and I have to move futher away from him. Then I get a small plan. Brann swings his sword and I let my axe reach within the range of it stopping the sword. In the little surprised moment, I throw my axe at him and it lands in his stomach, instantly killing him. BOOM! I pull my axe out of his body and make a run for it to the village nearby.
I get two knifes from the outskirts and I am ready. I look around and see that Azmela have reached the cornucopia. I am about to run down to her when I see that girl from 12 running to get a knife. She killed Carey...Although I didn't like her I want her to pay for it and then I dash towards her.
I look up and see that Alska is running towards me so I pick up my knive and try to get away. She cathes up easily and push me to the ground. I swing the knive back and forth in front of me as I fall trying to avoid her pinning me to the ground. I fell the pain as I fall on dessert rocks and then pain comes up from my stomach were Alska has placed her foot and is pressing down. I can fell that I am about to throw up I try to make her remove her foot but I can't. "You can forget all about escaping, 12." she says in a cold but somehow passionate voice. I look at her. The girl who told about her mother and father depts in the interview is gone. A girl born to kill is staring at me. "I can't drag your death out like Kara's. I am sorry but I have other business" she says and points to the cornucopia. "But I can make it somewhat painfull. I hope this is okay". I fell like I am just about to throw up when she pierces her knive through my stomach and then she leaves me. I turn to the side and my vomit begins to spread on the ground. The pain comming from my stomach is tremendous and the fact that I am throwing guts up is even worse. I close my eyes and after time finally feel peacefull. I close my eyes and fall into slumber. BOOM!
I smile as I see my little ally comming towards me with a bloody knive in her hands after finishing off the girl from 12. I gotta admit that I was a little distrachted by the show she put up. It was facinating. But it was also creepy. I am not sure if I can trust her. I turn away from her to get my throwing knives determined not to waste more time on it. I get my knives and look for a victim. Most tributes has gotten out of there but there are a few left. I look when I see the girl from 8. Eaton's girlfriend... I smile as I throw my knives and they got her face open. BOOM! A painless death...maybe she deserved worse but I am not a physco... I think.
Come on, Allan, I tell myself. You got to keep on running. Hurry! The warm weather and the mountain running makes it almost impossible t-. Suddenly I fall and I hear a big "KNACK". It takes me a second to realize that I my foot got stuck in a root. I lift my foot and see that it's turned 90 degrees! Probally broken...But can't think of that now, I have to keep on running. I slow down a little and make sure to look carefully at the ground this time. I hear something from behind me and look and then I run into something soft and fall a second time. I look in front of me and see that I didn't run into something, I ran into someone. Starry is lieying on the ground looking at me in disbelieve. "Career!" I hiss at her knowing that she has a weapon somewhere. I try to get up but my foot hurts badly from the second fall. "No no no no! I'm not! Well...I were...but I left!" Starry says haltingly. "Really?" I look at her. Her hair is messy and she look exchausted and she has no weapon or supplies. "I couldn't stay with them...They sickened me...the way they would kill others" she says and I can almost hear the tears in her eyes. I sit up and then put my arms around her.
The backpack that I have is frigthinly lightweight. I am pretty sure that I don't really contain that much. I look around in the ruins to find Asuka but I see nothing. Where is she? I fell someone poking my back and look behind me and see Asuka smiling at me. "Hello again" she says. "Did I scare you?". "Nah...you're not that scary, Asuka" I say and smile back. We sit down and set up camp together. "By the way" Asuka says and looks down in the backpack she got from the bloodbath. After searching for a little bit she pulls out a shiny red apple and throws it to me. "Why settle for one apple when you can have a whole bushel?" she says. "Hey, that's my line!" I say and cut the apple with my knive I got from the backpack. I take a bite of one of the halfs and throws the other one back to Asuka.
The savannah grass is tall and easy to hide in as I sneak up to the girl. At first I couldn't find her but then I almost wandered right up to her camp. I make ready and then I sneak all the way up to her and push her gently. She doesen't fall but just looks over her back and see my face. "Aideen...? Aideen! Not funny!" she yells at me. We look at each other. Alucia tries her best to keep a serious face but then it cracks and she smiles and laugh. "When you put a spider on my shoulder I...push you" I say laughing. "My trick was way more creative!" she says "And is that supposed to be a threat or a joke?". "I don't know...both" I say and we continiue laughing.
The small electricity generator are save in my backpack. I sit in a house in the far end of the savannah looking out the vindow waiting for the anthem. I sit a little and is almost drifting off when the anthem awake me. I look up and see the faces of: Echo and Brann from 6, Johanna...no Joane from 8, Jane from 12...wow only four deaths, but again, that makes sense with only three careers.
Day 2: Lava
I wake up and feel an intense heat much worser than before. This arena is hot but this is almost life dangering. I get up and begin to run down the mountain to get away from the heat. I get down of the mountain and look up...what is it I can see. Smoke? This is not looking good for the tributes on the mountain. Then I feel pain from my stomach. I see that the girl from 1 has seen me and her knive i burried deeply into my stomach.
I enjoy every second of it. Walking towards District 7 while she is fighting to make the pain go away. While she's lieying helplessly on the ground. "May I have the honor?" says Alska. I can see the killer instinct in her eyes. Before the games began she was rather shy. The games has really gotten to her head. "Sure" I say and Alska runs over to Kat's bleeding body, excited to have a new victim. Then she begins. Ears, finger, and even a foot is cut off, throw away by Alska into a pile of blood and flesh. I shiver as I see my little phyco ally toture Kat to death. I am happy that I hit her in the stomach cause that will atleast make her die somewhat early. BOOM! I look up and my jaw drops. "Alska run now!" she looks up and I point at the summit of the mountain were orange stuff is slowly flowing out. "Get away!" I yell and Alska get's up and we run back to the cornucopia.
I wake up in the cave that me and Allan found on the mountain. I look at him. He looks so peacefull when he sleeps. I know that my fears have been confirmed... I like this guy...more than normal. I remember him in the training, how he would usually stay away from most others... But I saw something on the inside... I still don't know what it is though... I get up. The air is extremely hot. I wake Allan. "Isn't it hotter than usual?" I ask. "Well... I don't know what the standard temperature of this place is. But it's defernetly hotter than yesterday". I get up and look out. "ALLAN?! HURRY OUT!" I yell. He get's up and out. "WHAT'S THAT!" I yell and point at the orange liquir running down the mountain. "La-...la-... Lava!" he says. I don't know what it is but it's gotta be bad. "Hurry!" I yell and grap his hand and begin to run. It's goes slow and the lava is fast... I look at Allan who runs really slow and see that it's foot that is still twisted. "Starry...I can't run...just go" he says. "What?! NO?!" I say. "Starry just go. I am gooner anyway" he says and look at me so sad. "I can't...I won't!" I yell. The lava is almost there... Then I lean towards him and let my lips storke his and I take his hand. Then we both are washed away by waves of heat. I feel extreme pain but also happyness...cause I am still holding Allan's hand. BOOM! BOOM!
I feel the ground rumbeling. I get up and look out of the window in my hut facing the mountain and see that lava has run down the sides and is now going down south towards the village. I get the water and wire in a parachute and is about to run strait to the savannah when I run by a house. In the window I can see a girl sleeping in her bed. I can? And suddenly I have to. I get inside and shook the sleeping girl. "Wake up!" I yell and she opens eyes. First she screams but then she realize that I am just the little boy from 3. "We got to!" I say and almost drag her out of the house holding on to her arm. We reach the outskirts of the savannah and watch as the lava sinks into the village. "Thank you...so much... I don't...I don't know what to say" the girl says. "I am September" she says. "I am Micah" I say and we shake hands.
Whew, that was close. I stand in the ruins of city and watch as the lava goes down the mountain and runs over the village. Funny how the lava doesen't go to the savannah nor the ruined city but I guess that's how the gamemakers planned it. As I stand in the ruins a girl comes up to the other walls. The girl, Suki, I think list up and look to the cornucopia were the two careers are sitting. Hm... "You're going for the careers, aren't you?" I yell. Her body shakes and then she looks at me with her crossbow ready to shoot. "The thing is..:" I say in an completely calm voice. "I want them gone to. So was thinking of a quick one day alliance...or one night...we could team up kill those girls". "I don't need help" she says harshly. "But you might get killed in the process, so I guess it's fine" she continiues.
I sitting eating a bread and drinking water from my sponsor. It's nice. I sit in a houses, or what was ones a house a memorys of Mandy and me sitting my house drinking tea haunts me. Then I hear the anthem play and I walk out of the house to see who had died today: Starry from 4, that's wasn't really a surprise,she simply wasn't strong enough. Kat from 7, who I never really noticed in the training and then Allan from 13 who wasn't really all that remarkable aswell.
Day 3: Are you ready to do this?
We sit around in the cold, dark ruins staring at the sky. Drey's sitting with his axe gently driving his fingers over the blade. I really don't have anything to do. "Don't you think we have waited long enough" I say without showing any of my impatiences. We are a pressured situation. We both consider how to kill one another if both of us should survive. We both know it. "Hmm..." he looks up to the moon. "I guess. Are you ready to do this?". "Are you?" I say a lift an eyebrow in a taunting motion. "Who will take on who?" he asks. I think a little. Both are careers and derseve to die but the 12 yeard old girl haunts me. I don't like the feeling of it. "I will take Alska, you're too weak" I say in a normal tune of voice like I was talking about the weather. He doesen't say a thing and we creep up to the outskirts of the ruined city. We both get up and sneak so close to the cornucopia. Drey walks futher and stand over Azmela's sleeping body. I walk over to Alska who sleeps close by and I shoot Alska in the chest in the same second as his axe goes down and splidt Azmela's body and head. BOOM! BOOM! Now I have to do it. My plan. I quickly reload and call: "Drey!". He turns around and I shoot him. A metallic "clink!" sounds as my arrow hit's his axe.
I knew she was gonna do it. As soon as I killed Azmela I took the axe up in front off my chest knowing that she would aim for that and not miss. "I knew you were gonna do that" I say and run toward her. She struggles to reload but a crossbow is much slower than a bow. My axe splidts through her head when the arrow says "click" as a remarker that the crossbow is loaded. BOOM! Suki's headless body falls to the ground still holding her crossbow. Her head lies beside me and her panicked expression creeps me out. I think...she wishpered something as she died..."Sorry...Haru"? I get up and take some dried meat and water from the cornucopia. I try to lit the supplies on fire but the wind is strong at night and the firs goes out so I end up only setting fire to most of it but not all. I leave before daylight shines and the words "Sorry Haru" haunts my thoughts.
I sneak closer to the girl from three intrested of what she is doing. It looks so weird... She is walking around with a coil of wire and a little machine attached to it. She make it so that the wire moves in one big circle. It's looks like a pretty stupid trap, to me but I am pretty sure that the machine she carries means trouble. I would kill her but sadly my sword will mean that I have to cross the wire to get to her and I am pretty sure that I might die in the process. Instead I sneak away from her and look through the savannahgrass at her continiueing to walk around spreading the wire.
I awake. The sun is burning and the ruins seems almost glowing in the morning sun. I look around and see that Layla's still sleeping so walk over and shook her body. "Asuka...Asuka?" she mutters and turn to the side. "Asuka? Not Lyle?" I say smiling. "Asuka, I don't make the same mistake twice" she says and then her eyes lock on something in the distance and her eyes widen. I turn my head and look to see that the mountain which before was covered by a thick layer of lava is gone and the mountain is covered by trees just like before. The other city that was floded by the lava is now a big pile of ruins just like here. "Do you think that mountain is safe?" I ask. "Maybe...it could also be retriggerable trap... I wouldn't take the chance, anyhow" Layla says.
I smile a little when I see the two girls from 10 and 11 walk by me. I know that they are walking right to the girl from 3. Courious, I let them walk around 100 meter before me before I begin to creep after them. When they are almost there I stay in the grass and enjoy the show.
I hear the grass shake and see two bodys walk right towards me. The girls just stand there chocked to see another tribute and in my panic I click the switch on the electricity generator. The sparks flies and then one of the girls bodies begins to shake fouriously. Before the other girls can react I turn around and run the oppersit direction.
I scream as I see Aideen's body move around in weird creepy emotions and then falls down to the ground. "AIDEEN!" I scream and go down on all four. Her eyes flicker a little but I know that the electricity that were going through her body was more than anyone could survive. "Al...Al...Aluci..." she mutters but I stroke her chin to make her stop. The tears begin to fall down my cheeks and land on hers. "It's...fu...fu...fun...ny. I...am...dy...dy...dying but...yo...u...u...are..the one...cry...y...ing..." she mutters. "You're not dying" I whisper but I know it's true. "I...had...hoped...t...to...make a...co...co...medy..show with you" she continiues. I stroke her cheek as her eyes become blank. BOOM! I close her eyelids and cry my eyes out with her head resting on my legs.
"I am hungry" says Micah. I look at him and see that he's more than just hungry he's literally shaking of hunger. It appears to me that he must have felt hunger for a long time but just haven't spoked out about it. "Hm...we are in on a savannah...I don't know that much about nature since I am from 8 but who knows there might be some" I say. "I haven't seen any tributes around so I think it's save" I tell him. "Hmm... let's splidt and meet up in an hour" he says. "I am not sure... I kinda want us close by" I say, "There are so bushes over there" I point in a nothern direction, "we could gather over there".
We walk a little. Micah is slowly falling behind me so I look back and see that his shaking body is somewhat far behind. I look forward...it's not that far away. I wish he didn't have too go through this, I mean...he's just a boy. Then I hear the grass being shoved aside. I turn around and see a striped cat like mutt sitting on micah with a piece of his neck in it's mouth. BOOM! The rage explodes through me and the next second the mutt has one of my claws through it's neck. I run to Micah but like the cannon told me, he is already dead. I dry the blood away from his throat and close his wide eyes. His little thin body lying in the grass, dead, makes tears fall from my eyes.
We sit looking at the sky anxiously. Five cannons have sounded today. this gotta be the day with most deaths other than the bloodbath. Asuka still have a district partner and I...well I don't have any preferences...still I am nervous. There are only tough competertors left. Then the anthem starts to play. First off Alska's face appears. The phyco from 1 who killed Jane, she deserved it. Then Azmela from 1 aswell. Me and Asuka highfive knowing that there are none careers left. Then Micah from three appears. It's sad that an 12 year old died but we can't keep worrying over that. Then Aideen from 10. I look at Asuka but she don't react. And then Suki from 13. I am about to go to sleep but then Claudius Templesmith voice burst out: "Attention tributes, attention. We gamemakers think it's time for a feast! Tomorrow at dawn there will be bags for you at the cornucopia! As always, may the odds be ever in your favor!"
Day 4: Feasting
I lay in the cold night and shiver. Aideens face haunts my throughts and make me tired but I fear the sleep as it will only make me have a nightmare. The lighthearted feeling that Aideen's precense gave has completely disappeared with Aideens death. Nothing is "fun" anymore. "I am gonna find you" I whisper to the dark. Who would kill Aideen...funny, nice and caring, Aideen? Only a monster...I most find her...
I sit and look at the moon when it's finally late enough. I get up and leave my stuff in my camp. I feel so vornuable here without any weapon...well I have the coil with some wire and it might hurt a bit I smash it into someones face but other than that it's not looking good... I do however remember as I watched some games on the trainride to the capitol for some ideas for strategys...a red haired girl in the 74th annual hunger games who used the tactic and I think it's a good tactic for me aswell.
I walk through the savannah and reach the cornucopia. I am not sure if I should leave the safety of the tall grass but something tells me that there won't be any. However just to be save, I pick up a rock and throw it as far as I can to the site of the savannah...no one responds to the sound I guess I am alone... I sneak up and hide in the cornucopia.
As I walk towards the cornucopia I see that the gamemakers has made a small treeline appear in the night. I find a bush that think will be a good place to hide for now. The sun is just about to break out from hills and the sky looks rosy and pretty. "Sorry, Haru..." the words keeps flying around in my mind. I look to the cornucopia and see that the bloodstains from Suki hasn't been removed. "Sorry ha-" I am thrown out of my own thoughts when suddenly the plate rises and the blonde girl from 3 rushes out, get the back with a "3" on it and run to the treeline.
That girl from 3 is know out of the question. Alucia from 11 is probally not going since she's weak and alone. That makes Drey from 7, Kennedy from 5, September from 8 and Asuka and Layla from 10 and 12. I sit still. I wanted to find out about that girl from 3 she seemed like she knew her stuff.
I hear some leaves shaking and see that Drey from 7 is gonna make a run for it. He reaches the cornucopia but as he graps his backpack an arrow goes though his hand. He roars and drops the bag and then another arrow goes through his chest. BOOM! I look to see were the arrow came from and see that Kennedy from 5 must be hiding around the west side of the treelines.
It's creepy watching Drey's dead body I know I can't back down like I did in the first arena... "You have to be strong, Kennedy, you have to" I tell myself. I know that my arrow might have revealed my location and that I should run so I get up and sprint to the cornucopia. I close my eyes as I run expecting feeling a spear going through my stomach but nothing happens.
I see as that girl who shot Drey runs to the cornucopia... I can't die in these games without getting Drey avenged even if we didn't have an alliance in this arena. I watch as she runs out from the cornucopia and run towards the place were I am hiding. I fits my hands and get my claws ready and as she is a meter from reaching the treelines I jump up. She is so chocked that she freezes for a fatal second and I stick my claws deep in her chest. BOOM! I rush in and grap my own bag and run back to the savannah.
I wait to see if anyone else is comming but appearently is only us. I didn't get this much only now I know that September is deffernetly someone to watch out for. I watch as the bags a are lowered into the sand around the cornucopia and I walk to the ruined city. I find a place to lay down.
Day 5: "You must die!"
The nice warm breeze gently touch my face as it goes through the savannah grass. A tiny note drops from the sky in a silver parachute and I open it, seeing that my mentor want me to stay away from everyone. The final six is top class and I am not sure if I can handle the pressure. That girl...Kennedy appared in my nightmares. I shake my head rapidly trying not to remember the dream. I get up and look around and decide that this place is deserted enough for me.
I look around as I finally see the oasis. I can reconise it from the birds flying over it, cause they seem to seek to water. I read that in a book long time ago in district 3...I think of my home were people still have me to cheer for. It's long since there were a winner from district 3... I hope I will change that.
I reach the oasis and walk to the water. It's pretty clean, and if I were to be poisoned I would eigther die, or win this before it could reach to harm me. And that's when I feel it....there is this kind of feeling I feel when something is about to happen. I am not sure but it usually guide me... I turn around in the last second and see Alucia run towards me, her black hair billowing after her.
She make an attack with her knive but I get out of the way in just milli seconds before she would have cut my stomach open. "You killed her! You killed Aideen!" she screams at me and then I remember her. I didn't do it perpouse, it was more reflexes. Something tells me she won't listen. I can almost see the insanity and the restlessness in her eyes. She tries to stab me, and use my knive to blockade. She tries yet again and in the last seconds I turn to the side and then block her knive with mine. "You must die" she screams at me with tears in her eyes...then she begins to sob and then cry hysterically. Her attacks get weaker and weaker as she falls down her knees and sit down at cry.
I don't really know what to do. She sits beside me, crying at her eyes out. I get down on my knees aswell and put a hand on her shoulder. She shivers and then sit a bit. Then she screams again and flings her knive after me. I barely avoid it and stab her as she still cries. BOOM!
"MUTTS!" Asuka screams and points at the center of the city. I try to see and then I see, dark, scary men like mutts in greek soldier uniforms going towards us slowly. "Get up!" Asuka screams at me and almost drags me up eventhough I perfectly able to stand myself. I quickly reach for my knive and Asuka already has her sword. I look behind me and see that the soldiers are leaving something in the ruins as they march towards us.
We run and jump over the ruins. I feel my foot getting stuck in something and I fall right down. "Get up!" Asuka yells and ends up almost dragging my foot out of the ruin. We stumble out on the cornucopiafield and see that Crimson already is here. She sees us, looks around and rushes to the savannah as we sprint after her. She looks back at us but Asuka is faster and she reaches her. She flings up her sword but Asuka easily blocks it. Crimson's tired after the run but Asuka still got energy. At that's when I see it. It's hard cause of the savannah grass that provides a lot of camueflage but the lone lion is there sneaking at them. "ASUKA GET AWAY!" I yell at her and Asuka jumps to the side right as the lion charges. It lands on Crimson pinning her to ground, as it bites her head off. BOOM! Then Asuka's sword goes through the lions head and the lion drop down, dead, on Crimson. I look at Asuka who looks disgusted. "We not long from home now" I say.
I sit in the tree as the anthem begins to play. The sky lits up and I see Crimson from 5 and then that girl from 11's faces appear. Now, we are only older tributes left... I expect the screen to go dark but then Claudious Templesmith starts to speak:
"Attention, tributes, attention. Our generous and rightfull leader President Rose Ana Snow have decided that to show her generousity till the people who obey her she will let, not one, not two but even three people be crowded as victor...that is, if they survive next day. But first you must obey the command of President Rose Ana Snow, you have to meet all at the cornucopia at noon tomorrow. Let's just say that the odds of winning will be 0, if a tribute doesen't show up. That was all for now, and may the odds be ever in your favor!"
Day 6: The final four
The dawn is near when I crawl back to the cornucopia. The trees there were planted for the feast is still there. See night makes it hard to see but I think I can see Asuka and Layla sleeping in the corncuopia. As for Alice...I don't know cause I have only seen her ones in the whole game, at the feast. I look at Asuka and Layla trying to come up with a good plan to tackle them but the truth is that they are strong and that unless they get seperated it will be hard to win this.
"Pssst!" I hear and the hair on my arms begin to rise as I turn around and see Alice. "We both know that we can't win this alone, September" she whispers but I can't see her. "Wanna ally?" I hear. I am not sure if I trust her...she seems to clever but I might be able to use her..."Fine" I say and a second later Alice drop down from the branches above me. "People don't think to look up" she says and smile.
"Wait...? Why didn't you just kill me?" I ask. "They told us three could be crowned if they survived this day, however if I were to kill you the gamemakers wouldn't be pleased and then I would be in some trouble" she says and smile. Didn't thought about that...
"I have a plan, September..." Alice says and then the sun rises
The sunlight makes my eyes flicker and then I realize were we are. "Layla get up" I tell her and we strech. "Were do you think they are...? Alice and September?" I ask
"I don't know, but they should be here soon, it's not like it's the best tactic to deny the gamemakers" Layla says and get's up. "Let's crawl the cornucopia and stay there, it's our best defense".
We walk over to the side of it and begin to crawl and have only reached the top of it when we hear September running below. She is running towards us looking at us like we were her next victim. "Is she insane?" Layla ask "I mean she's trying to take us both on alone and she can't even reach to climb the cornucopia befo-" The claw that was before tied to September hand flies through the air. I push Layla and then throw myself to the side and then I hear Layla scream.
Asuka pushed me with so much power that I fly off the cornucopia. Then the sudden pain of your back colliding with hard ground.
I hear something that sounds like someone jumping down and then I feel steel being pressed to my chest. Chaos is rising as I cannot see neither Asuka nor September but I can see white blond hair on my shoulders and figure that Alice is pressing the knife. I can feel small drops of warm blood going down my neck and that's were I strike. My elbow is pushed back hitting Alices stomach and she falls back.
She get's up with her knife ready to strike again. I look at her, she's not strong but she has the speed with her. Then she turn around and begins to sprint away from me, and I follow
I rush to find Layla and Alice who were supposed to surprise attack her but Asuka slides down from the cornucopia before I reach the other site.
My one claw is ready in my hands as we both begin to circle around each other. Asuka quickly makes a stab with her sword but I jump out of reach in the last second. She tries again but this time I block the sword with my claw. She moves closer and presses her sword to my claw to make me back away and the pressure is too much. I jump to the side but Asuka is quicker. She gets her sword out of defense mode and slash out.
The pain begins to rise from my stomach as I see a big wound from one hip to the other. I look up and make one last attemp as I reach out with the claws, As the pain makes me tilt towards Asuka I use my last strength to pierce it deep down her calf. Then I fall all down BOOM!
We stop running as the "Boom" echoes through the dessert. Layla looks at me, her eyes widen in fear. "If it's Asuka....I AM GONNA KILL YOU, BOTH OF YOU!" Layla screams and begin to run back to the cornucopia.
I decide to run after her as my couriousity get's the best of me. I run to the other side of tthe cornucopia and see September laying with a massive wound bleeding all over the sand. Asuka is laying down moaning in pain. September's claws is pierce through her right calf and you can literally see the tips of the claws on the other side of her calf. The claws must have hit a mayor vein cause blood keep on flowing out of the wound in a strong stream. Layla shivers and run to Asuka.
"Why aren't the fanfare playing?!" she screams to the sky in panic as she puts her hands at Asuka's wound to stop the bleeding, which doesen't seem to help.
"They are waiting. To see if she survies...I think they will wait till noon" I tell her almost coldly.
"What?! We don't have till noon! Asuka need help now!"
"I know how to stop the bleeding but it might cost her leg to b-" . "I don't care what it cost, help her!" she yells. I bow down and rip my jacket open making a turniquet. I look at my work little and then decide to use my knife to apply pressure. The turniquet is done and Layla queeses Asuka's hand.
"It's gonna be okay" Layla whispers. Asuka doesen't respond....it's a matter of seconds...and then the victory fanfare begin to play:
"Ladies and gentlemen I am pleased to present the victors of the 100th annual hunger games: Alice Williams of district 3, Asuka Onat of district 10 and Layla Cypress of district 12!"
I see...light....the pain...it's so real...but as the light moves closer it begins to fade...I want to let go...let go of the pain, let go of everything...the light comes closer to me and the pain dissapears even more. I take the last step and stand in the light.
The winners interview
The prep team get's done and walks out of the room as my stylist walks in. She's holding two dresses in her hands She holds them up. One of them is short, and looks like one of those roman gladiator suits in a more femenine dress version. The other one is long and looks like leather as well but deffernetly not as personal. "I designed the gladitor dress for you when I saw your wrestling with Layla. I think it was there I realized that you could win. But... I didn't predict what would happen to your leg so I made a long dress as well for you" she says.I look her.
"No" I say. "I am not embarressed about my leg. People can see it if they want, I don't care".
"But..." my stylist say.
"I know it's not pretty but it's a part of me and I have accepted it" I say. My escort smiles and hands me the dress. I put it on and put on the sandals matching the dress. It's weird putting on my sandal cause I can't really move the plastic leg. They asked me if I wanted a metal, but they had just figured out how to make them in plastic. They look like a leg, not perfect but prettier than a metal one so i said yes. I put on my dress and we get in the elevator and down below the stage. I can't see Layla or Alice down there, and if my mentor hadn't told me that they won, I wouldn't know. I get on the pedestal and the plate slowly rises.
The glittering lights of the capitol blinds me. "ASUKA!" I hear a familiar voice yell and then I am hugged and almost fall to the ground as I try to support myself with my new leg. I look and see that Layla is hugging me and crying. The capitol crowd goes: "Aaaaw". "Easy, Layla I am not as ferm as I were" I say. Layla looks at me and then my leg and see that it's not my leg. "Oh god, Asuka" she says. "I am sorry" she says.
"Now, now" says Ciera, the new host for the interviews and smiles. "Should we begin these or aren't you guys done?". We get up and sit down in the chairs, I sit in the middle one next to Alice and Layla. The lights dim and the recab of the games begin.
They skip over the first arena's very fast only showing a few clips of the tributes making it to the final arena. But when we get to the 15-16 year olds they show a lot. I see how Layla kills district 7 in hand-to-hand and shiver. I could have ended up in combat with her...
I see Asuka and Layla fight wrestling together and then stopping for the sole purpose that they tired each other out. It's kinda weird that they were so close to killing each other and then end up as best friends. Then I see myself fleeing from the village as Cheerish drags a bleeding Olive out of there.
The next day I see Asuka almost being killed by Cheerish. I see Layla hiding as Asuka steps on a branch. I don't know if the other noticed but I can see the doubt in Layla's eyes as she tries to decide what to do. Leave her and save yourself or risk your own life for her? She choses the ladder and kills Cheerish. Then I see myself running from the mutts in the swamp and meet up with Layla and Asuka and then the victory fanfare plays.
I see how we are transported to teh new arena and how Layla and Asuka quickly etablish an alliance in the bloodbath and how I get my vital electricity generator. If I didn't pick it up I would be dead... The deaths in the bloodbath goes by quickly but they left in some parts of Jane's death and how Alska had become a phyco. I also see how Allan run strait into Starry at the mountain. I smile as I watch that moment. I knew from first day of training that Strarry had a thing for him. But my smile quickly goes away since I know they will die at one point soon.
The next day they show how Starry and Allan died together. I can see more than one person in the crowd rubbing a tear away and i must admit it myself that I wished they made it futher. They show how Micah saved September. I can feel a single tear fall from my eye seeing my young district partner in the games. He had a bright future ahead of him...now he's just another fallen tribute...another victim to the games... I almost feel bad that September was killed when I see how she treated Micah.
The screen goes black and tehn I see Suki and Drey attacking and killing both of the careers. Suki always creeped me out, she seemed too clever. Then I see myself, Aideen and Alucia. I want to close my eyes. In teh whole game, this was the hardest moments. I see how chocked I get on cam and then me sending thousands of volts through her poor little body. I close my eyes as Alucia falls down on all four and cry as her friend dies. I feel so terrible...like a murder, almost... The feeling don't get supported by the fact that I see a lion killing Micah right after it. Again I see September trying to help him...I know that she, Micah, Alucia and Aideen will haunt my nightmares.
The screen goes black and we see the cornucopia field. I see myself sneak up to the cornucopia and then sometimes later I rush out of it and move toward the savannah. I then see September killing Kennedy. SHe seems diffrent than before with Micah. More insane...
The screen fades again and then I see what I have feared the most. Me drinking water at the oasis...I know what will happen. The cameras switch to follow Alucia sneaking up on me. At first she seems like she is trying to make a surprise attack but then the sight of me get's to much for her. You can see her lust to kill her. She's not human...only a hunter... In the last second I turn and then out fighting begin
