Please tell me what you think. Don't be afraid to tell me what you honestly think about it. I want both negative and positvie reaction, but most importantly l want you honest opinion. Hope you enjoy it!
Chapter one: Welcome to my Nightmare
I just watch District 13 get bombed not even an hour ago. The war is now over for Districts 1, 2, and 4. We were the first to surender, but the others will soon. Now the unjust Capitol will find a way to devestate us and put us back in our place. Tomorrow they will announce punishment of the Districts on live TV for all of Panem to see. I try to go to sleep but its hopeless. There are still fighting and shooting going on. When l finally go to sleep l dream of nothing. I'm just in darkness waiting to awake. When l do wake, l go to the dining room where my little sister and brother, mothter, and father are sitting. My mom is crying hysterically and my father is on his is on one knee next to my mother holding on to one of her hands, and the other hand to a phone. I run an ask what is happening, and my mother answers "Your brother has survied!!! Your brother has survied!!! He is on his way right now as we speak!!!" Tears roll down my face as l find that my brother has lived. They said he had died in a booming with his group at war, but l never gave up. My father hands me the phone. Then l here his voice and l begin to hyperventalate "How are ya little sis? I miss you and can't wait to see you, it been 3 years now, you must be big! I love you and l'll see you soon." I try to speak but when l do its nothing but crocking. I clear my voice and said "I never gave up on you comming home! I love you Auburn, return safe. I don't care if it takes you a week, just take your time and be safe. I love you, and can't wait for you to come home." "Don't worry l will be as careful as l can, pleas put moth- AHHHHHH!!!!" Theres a big boom and then theres a ring as the phone disconnect. "Auburn!!!!!!! Auburn!!!!! Are you there?!?!?!?! Auburn!!!!" I yell. My father grabs the the phones from me and any trace of his happiness is gone. "What happen, what did you here?!?!" my mom shouts. "I, I, l don't know. Just a big boom and scearming. Is he okay?!?!" Now my mom is crying and chocking and the little ones are scared and crying. I panic and now l am unable to breathe. The wind is knoced out of me and l black out. I wake in the living room with my family, all of there faces are neutral. My mom hands me a sandwicth but all l can think about is Auburn. "Is he okay?!?! Is he alive?!?!?" l say in a rush. "No, yesterday the train he was on had drove on a land mine by accident and their was no survivors." my father says as he crys.
With tears in my eyes l sit up and lookat the TV as our president, Blaze Smith, walks on stage. "Hello Districts, as for your punishment for defying the Capitol will be released right now. To all you rebles out there you will not suffer but you childern shall." My mom gives out a cry and grabs both my brother and sister and l, and holds us tight. "It will be called the Hunger Games. Were all 12 Districts of Panem will offer up in tribute on young woman and man, between the ages of 12 and 18. These tributes will spend one week in the Capitol to go through Training, Open Ceromonies, Interviews, and will get a Training score to perpare them to survie. After the week they will be thrown into an outdoors arena to fight ot the death till one reaimins. Tributes will be rised into the Arena on a metal plate. The rules of the games are simple, wait for a minute when a gong rings and then you will be allowed to move form your plate. Step off and mines around you will go off. 24 will enter, but only one will come out. Reapings will select the young man and woman, it is sort of like a lottery. Reapings will behead tommorow. Oh and one more thing, the Hunger Games will be aired on live TV for all of Panem to watch. More instuctions will be given later on. Good luck to all." The screen goes black, and I don't understand the punishment. My dad embraces me and then l understand it. I start to weep as l am endanger. I am Coral Chance, l am 16, l live in District 4, and Welcome to my nightmare.
Chapter 2: Life Will Never Be the Same
I walk to the square with my family. My mom is holding on to my right hand it might shatter. When l get to the roped off placed for 16 year olds, my mom gives me a tight hug with a single tear rolling down her cheek. Then l hug my father and he says l love you and good luck. I enter the place and the mayor begins a speech about the Capitol's victory and District's failure. A sea-green skined Capitol citizen, know as an escort walks on stage. "Hello District 4, Lets Have a Victor for our First Annual Hunger Games!!!! Ladies first!!!!" She skips to a glass bowls held with each elgible kid, including me. My stomach thightens and l find my best friend Logan and hold his hand. "Coral Chance!!!! You have the honor of representing District 4, alnog with Lance Blue!!!!" I almost faint and l can here my mom crying her eyes out. I walk along side with Lance and the Escort calls out for Volunteers. "I Volunteer!!!" someone shouts. Who is so stupid enough to volunteer l think, l look to see Logan running to the stage. When he gets to the center the Escort says "Thats the spirt of the Games, and may l ask you for your name?" "Logan, Logan Tide." We face each other and l start to weep. And he hugs me in a thight embrace. Then we are rushed to the Justice Building to say our good byes.
The first to come is my family. My mom is crying so hard she can't breathe. My mom puts her arms around me and l do the same. We do nothing but cry. Then my father has to pry her from me. He kisses me on the forehead and hugs me so thight my eye balls could of poped out. Then the litle ones come to me. They are to young to understand and ask me where l'm going. "I'm going to a far off place to study the ocean." I tell them. "But why, and when will you come back?" My little brother, Aidan ask. "I have to go for a reason you wont understand till you are older. And l might come back, it depends on how strong l am. I love you both, never forget that. And you will understand later why l had to leave." I kiss them on the forehead, and the peackeepers come to take my family away. Next to come is my second best friend, Laila. She runs to me and we just hug until the peackeeper comes. Then she takes out her favorite seashell necklace and puts it around my neck. "You are allowed one thing to take into the arena, please take this." She kisses me on the cheek and then she is gone. Now that l am done with my good byes l am rushed to a train with Logan, our escort Lily Gladstione, and a survivalist ,Quin Jeck, will mentor us.
I think about my brother, Auburn, and who he died on a train. I start to get claustrophobic and open a window to let the air in. Logan walks into my room. "Why, Why did you volunteer?" l ask him. He's quite for a while and then he speaks "I.. I volunteered to protect you. You are my best friend and l can't stand to see you die on live TV. I am going to bring you back to district 4, l swear on my life." I start to cry and l run into his arms and don't let go until we are called to supper. We walk to the dining room were Lily and Quin are sitted at a large table. Servants fly in and out of the room with plates full of lushes food. The first course is a cream of rose soup, with a colorful salad. Then rostaed duck with gravy, mashed potatoes, steamed carrots & green beans, and rolls. And for dessert rich creamy ice cream. After l gained like 20 pounds from the dinner, we all walk to the TV room to watch the reapings. After l go to my room and fall asleep. When l wake up we have reached the Capitol and rushed into a buliding and have a 10 star breakfast. After Logan and l are separated and taken to our prep team.
Chapter 3: Beauty
I keep from screaming evey cuss word l know as Ridge, Pebels, and Jackony rip every hair out of my body. It hurts so so so much tear start to come out. After the waxing is done they bathe me in a solution that instantly takes away the pain. Then my stylist comes, Harris. And tells me to get out of the bathtub. l'm a little self conscious but l do as he says, and resist the erg to cross my arms over my breast. He nods and tells my prep team good job and that they can be excused. They start to babble on about the latest style and walk out the room. My stylist Harris walks to my closet and presses a button that reveals the most stunning dress l've ever seen. It has different shades of seagreen, white, and blue. The fabric is soft and light, and when ever l move it looks like the ocean is engulfing me. I'm speechless when my Harris ask me about it. "Its...It's... It's Amazing, the pretties thing l ever seen!!!" I yell as l hug him. "Well l'm glad you like it,it took forever to make. Well let start on your hair." Harris Calles back my prep team and an hour or two passes by. I look like the Queen of the Ocean with my amazing dress. My skin is slightly blue.
Harris walks me to my chariot and l meet Logan. He is dresses in the same fabric as me but he is in a suit. The Chariot is also breath taking the horses are painted blue and have gills on them. They look like creatures from the deep. And The Chariot itself is made of glass and is full of water and sea life. When we take off evertyone stops and stairs at us. We are unforgetable and breathtaking. Thousands of Capitol hands are reaching for us. For l while l am lost and actually praise the Capitol. Everything is a blur as Capitol Citizens go head over heels for us. Once we make it to the Training Center we are rushed to floor number 4. I walk to my room take off this spectacular dress and wash off the blue paint. I put on simple pants and and a T-shirt and walk to the dinning room, where only Logan is. "You look amazing out there, l felt like l was standing next to a Queen of the Sea." say Logan with a big grin on his face. I laugh and punch him in the arm and take a seat next to him. Then our mentor, escort, and stylist walk in. "So they have given us instructions for the Games. It turns out that there will be a huge golden Cornucopia full of supplies,at the begining, that will help you survie, and there will be sponser. These so called sponsers can pay for thing to be sent to you. Lets say you need water badly, a person can sponser you with water. Then a silver parachute will come to yu with your water, got it?" Logan and l both shake our heads and we all eat our 10 stars dinner. After we finish, we head to the TV room and watch the highlights of the Opening Ceremony. And We are stuning!!!! I say thank you to Harris and Logan's stylist and head off to bed with a dreamless sleep.
