Knowing he has his chance
A tall thin boy from the luxury district
Destined to be in the games
Forced to bring his District Pride
Along with his blonde companion
But fate has different plans.
The alliance he thought would last forever
By the death of Glimmer
He poised the spear
Ready to throw
Unknowing of the consequences
That would follow.
As he wishes for it all to end
He's somewhat glad
When the arrow pierces his neck.
A second of his wasted life
Before it all goes

Peacefully his body was resting on the cold ground. Seemed like he already sunk in deep slumber. Breathing deeply and slowly.That same moment, she realised she could take advantage of it. It was the perfect time for her to nest so closely to him, cuddling upto his arm. She too got taken over by sleep soon after.
I couldn't help but to ask myself; would he have aproved of this situation if he was awake? Or could it be, could he actually care for her?
I found myself staring at them, so peacefully resting, as if we weren't stuck in this mess. So vunerebal they seemed, so far from reality. I could so easily kill h

My feet are floating on the ground compared to Peeta's. He tromped along, obediently following Katniss's command's. I think it would be a good idea to ally up with Katniss because she knows how to hunt and frankly scares Cato, but she is so bossy and fussy. Chiding Peeta for walking like a fat elephant, teaching him a signal because she's worried he'll get lost like a small child in the mall, and is just so bossy. However, if it weren't for Peeta's lack of walking skills and Peeta and Katniss skwalbling like an old married couple, I would be going hungry. Eventually Katniss lets Peeta go and I decide to follow Peeta because

I eye the lunch table and make sure these are the people I want on my team as I tear into a sandwhich. Marvel, good with a spear, and meak. He won't try to over throw me. Glimmer, not a lot of skills and a ditzy blonde but will rake in sponsors with her gorgeous looks. Me, of course. Clove... How could she not be on my team? She is one with her knife and I've grown up and loved her my entire life. It's cruel that fate finally teamed us together like this, but I will break the rules for her, to get her out of the arena. Maybe I'll even die to save her. Then there's the district 4 tributes, hand

I stand on the ascending circular platform as it climbs higher and higher. Soon I am above ground and the platform locks in place. Looking around, I see the other twenty-three tributes on similar platforms, all in a circle around the Cornucopia, a large golden thing that houses weapons and equipment in its large mouth. Some tributes' faces are the same: Pure terror. Some aren't. Some wear an expression of braveness, like the boy from District 2. Don't let his blond hair and gorgeous face fool you. He is extremely dangerous. He could snap me in half with ease using only his pinkies. He's the one I must avoid at all costs. He's not the

"Hey, you!" Scolipede pauses Mandibuzz. Mandibuzz suddenly stopped and turned around quickly. "What department are you with?" he asks.
"I'm sorry, I just joined, I was looking for cleaning supplies and I waundered in here by accident." she lies.
"All members are on hold for now, we have to find this Rufflet that escaped that cage." Scolipede says pointing to the beaten cage.
"Oh, ok, I'll holler if I find it, I'll head down the right hall. For all we know, it's probaubly heading towards the exit." she lies again.

I wake up to Antoinette screaming at us to get out of bed. Apparently, we were already late for training. I spring out of bed and throw on my training uniform in the bathroom before Cato even stands up. I gallop over to Cato, "Common Cato, sleepy-head." I am smirking at him and he laughs.
"I'm going," He responds as he grunts. He grabs my head in his hands and kisses my forehead. "I'll be ready soon." I nod and trot out of his room. He quickly gets in the skin-tight uniform for training and meets me out in the dining room. We quickly shove food down our throats, as Antoinette escorts us into the elevator down to training.

Cato shakes me awake and the peace is gone. "What?" I snap. "Did someone die?"
"Glimmer, I need you to watch now." Cato says.
"No way!" I shout. "Get Clove, or Marvel! Or even District 4! I don't care who! Just not me! I need my beauty sleep."
"I know you need it. But it isn't working." Cato says, then he goes and lays down next to Clove, who wakes up and fixes her knifes and then goes back to sleep. I consider waking

FoxfaceThe sneaky girl from District 5Foxface1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Whose name was never known
Takes from the wealthy to save herself
No brutality in her blood.
The long ginger locks that gave her the name
Along with a vacant expression
As sly as a fox
As sneaky as a racoon
The numbers go down
The tension builds up
She knows she can't run away forever
They'll find her sooner or later
So as she tails the blonde baker
She finds her chance
And takes it
As she raises the nightlock that ends her life
The one final taste, a bittersweet delight

I stretch a bit in my bed before changing and getting out of the room. I talk to Enobaria before I'm taken into the room. I might get killed today, but who cares. That's probably what all the other tributes are thinking. 'Yeah, I'm gonna get killed. But I knew that already. I should just step of the platform and be sent sky-high, or jump in front of a Career and make them chuck a knife at me.' Explain why someon
'I'll never let you go' Chapter 2Much to my father's dismay, I survived the winter and the next one too. My mother scrimped and saved her pennies left over from her dresses to buy me extra food and rich milk to fatten me up. It worked. By the time she died from exhaustion when I was two, there was no way my father could claim I was weak, although I was still small. I can't remember my mother but I know she must have loved me a lot, because why else would my sisters have been so jealous of me? Certainly not for my looks. No, the only conclusion I can draw is that our mother had a special favouritism for me that they envied. Which didn't do me any favours, actually.'I'll never let you go' Chapter 21 year ago in Emotional More Like This

A cold breeze blew through my hair, forcing it onto my face. I regained conscious. I could hear voices, it was Cato and Marvel talking. My head was heavy and it took some time for me to realise where I was and what was going on. I must have passed out yesterday, I was really tired.
I was still hasitating to open my eyes, cause when I do, I'm just gonna glance back at the arena and the day will be the exact same copy of everyday before: Find food, kill, find water, kill, find a place to sleep, kill.
I took my backpack and briefly sorted my knifes back to my jacket, took other belongings and joined the others. Cato walked fastly ahead, making
The Definition of WritingWriting has to be one of the least appreciated art forms in the world. Just because we use literature as our way of expressing ourselves, and ink, pens, paper and our imagination as our mediums, we aren't considered true artists. Not many people understand how hard it can be to find the right words, the proper phrases. Pictures speak a thousand words, and each picture means something different. But the thing about words is that the message is unchangeable and immutable, and often unbelievably eloquent. That's why they say "Put it in writing."The Definition of Writing11 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

He told me everything that happened after, how he didn't even get Thresh's pack, just so he could take me to the lake and save my life. And how not even Foxface's cannon woke me up. "What do you think was in Thresh's pack?" I ask, right after he'd finished his story. "I don't know," He sighed, "How are you feeling?"

Cato left just a few minutes ago to scout for any tributes that might be heading this way. I expect three of them to show up. Moira from 5, Thresh from 11, and, of course, Katniss from 12.

The best four words to describe her.
Two blonde plaits and a flawless complection
Hiding her fierce and dangerous actions
No doubt she's a force to be reckoned with.
A 10 from the gamemakers shows she has skill,
But also that she hasn't enough.
An alliance of fear
A partner of fury,
Though her archery skills are questionable.
Her name said it all in the Tribute parade
Luxious, bright and fierce.
Confidence and pride floods her head
Drowning all warnings of danger.
Her allies, her comrades, all flee from the scene
Leaving her trapped and destroyed
She screams out for help yet nobody co

Clove hadn't really spoken to Cato before they had been chosen as tributes.
Both had generally the same background both came from privileged families, both were trained relentlessly from the day of their birth to prepare for the Hunger Games if they were ever picked, both went to the finest school in their District. If they were going to die, they were going to die with a fight that all would witness and remember.
She remembers acknowledging the boy, but never paying him too much attention, at first. He was snarky and clever, but never was he ever cruel, just disrespectful, until they got into the Games, that is.

Misjudged by her apperance
The pin-sharp blade
She sees as a friend
The only one she has left.
As the new rule is projected
She is dangerous as ever
One glance at her partner's fierce blue eyes
And she knows they can win.

A smirk grows on her lips
This is her chance
To eliminate the rest.

Then she takes her chance
Lunging at the girl, knives verses arrow
She knows she can do it - She has to
But then she's weightless
Lifted from the ground
A menace threatans her, fear flooding her body
A rock his only weapon

Katniss is shocked, I see. The Girl on Fire decides to make her next move and runs to grab her bag, before one of the Careers can come.
She's wrong. I run again, towards her, around the Cornucopia. I pull a knife from my jacket as I work my way towards Katniss. She sees me and tries to hit me with an arrow, so I swerve to the side and dodge it quickly. It hits my left arm, luckily I throw better with my right arm, so I pluck it off my arm and keep running.

Today was the reaping. A crucial moment in every careers life. You volunteer when you feel ready, when you feel you can make it out alive. My parents didn't know I would be volunteering today. I had trained for the moment since the age of 5, and I knew I was ready. Suddenly, there was a knock on the doorframe of my opened front door. I look up to see my best friend, (AND biggest crush), Cato's masculine face smiling at me from the doorway. Cato and I had been close ever since we were paired up together for training when we were younger.
"Hi Cato," I said with a smile. Cato walks into the house, grinning broadly.
