The 73rd Hunger Games ch.3
Of course my stylist tells me that they're here to make an impretion, I don't believe most of that crap. During the Parade, I can see the chariots ahead, marvelous. Jason and I are in silver headresses, I'm in a dress, he's in a tuex. I don't nervous at all, so I'm waving to the crowd smiling, he's doing the same. This is how Carl said we could get sponsors.
President Snow is at his podium, welcoming us, wishing us luck in the arena then quickly dismisses us. Our stylists and Rosealina congraulate us and say how amazing we looked. Then they turned to each other and started a conversation, I look around at the other tributes. I end at Distric

Cato ran blindly towards the noise. It couldn't be Clove who was screaming. Clove never, ever shrieked like that. Never shrieked with such open terror in her voice. As he ran, he saw fire girl running away into the woods, and Thresh running back over to the grassy area. Clove, meanwhile, lay on the ground, crumpled like a broken doll.
He dropped to his knees beside her, his breaths ragged. Clove reached out for his hand, panting. Blood ran down from her forehead.
"You stay with me," he ordered. "You have to stay with me, Clove, do you hear me? I can't lose you, Clove. I can't!"

I lay my head back down on Finnick's chest as he speaks to me, "Do you know everything you need to for the Arena? I know we still have all next week, but do you have any questions now?"
"I know what I need to. They train us well in District Four. Don't worry about the Games right now; just worry about us and spending are last bit of time together."
"Annie, I already told you, I'm not going to let you die, so please, dear, stop talking like you are. It's painful to hear you've given up already."
I sit up, "Do you honestly think I have a chance against those people? You see how big they are and how trained they are. So why should

I drag my feet to my room as tears fall from my eyes. I crawl under my covers and stare at the blank, white ceiling. I can't believe it's the same day I was head over heals for Finnick, the day I got chosen for the Hunger Games, and the same day I only thought of Lazarus as just another friend.
I let the tears cascade down my face. I don't know what I'm going to do about Lazarus and Finnick. I mean, I love them both, but who can't I live without?
I close my eyes and cry myself to sleep, each side of my heart pulling different directions.
I wake up the next day holding onto my covers for dear life. My knuckles are clammy and wh

Crying. All I have done is cried ever since I was chosen for these Games. Everything's happening too fast.
I tune back into reality and realize I am shaking in Finnick's arms. He's held me this whole time, making sure I'm okay. I love him. He makes me feel safe and special, like no one else can.
I sit up and look into Finnick's eyes. A beautiful green, just like the sea back home. Wherever he is, is my home.
"I love you," I tell him. No other words can describe my gratitude and admiration of him. No other words can describe how much he means to me. He has been through the Hunger Games and he is still able to be here making me fe

I finally stop crying and luck up into Finnick's eyes as I wipe my own, "Thank you."
"You're welcome," Finn smiles at me. He strokes my cheek with his thumb wiping away tears. I grab hold of his hand on my face and clasp my eyes shut. I never want to forget anything about Finnick.
Finnick presses his soft warm lips against my forehead, "We should probably get some dinner." I nod my head and stand up, not letting go of Finnick's hand. I don't even bother to fix my appearance, everyone knows I have been crying since we have boarded the train. I sit down in between Lazarus and Finnick, once again. I finally release my hold on Finn'

Many of you may think that the Gathering, where Clove died, I had the easiest time out of all the tributes. Well, you are very wrong. What I experienced wasn't physical pain, it was mental pain.
I got a letter in my pack that I retrieved in the Cornucopia. It read:
District Five Tribute,
Your district was brought in a rebellion formed by an unknown source. Everyone involved
in the attack has been killed. Sadly, your mother, and two older sisters were part of the
rebel alliance. They have been killed. Your father has died from alcohol poison as he

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.

I look up into Lazarus' large brown eyes covered in tears, "How long have you-"
"Ever since that summer a few years back," He answers, knowing what I was going to ask.
I think back a few summers and I remember the time clearly. It was the summer I saw Finnick as more than a friend. It was the year before Finnick's Games when we were both thirteen.
I remember sitting on the beach with Finnick and staring at the waves. Finn grabbed my hand and asked, "Do you love me, Annie?" He gulped nervously and stared intently into my eyes, waiting for a reply. I felt his palms begin to sweat and saw the nervous foot tapping.
I replied, "Yes
Cato: Chapter 1The District 12s are the last to arrive, still attracting some kind of emotion from the rest of us. As of me, I'm still pretty bent on killing Firegirl myself.

"What's up with their outfits?" she murmur under her breath.
"No idea, but she's mine," I say.
Clove looks up at me with an expression I cannot read, and shrugged. I look at the other tributes. Most of them are smaller than I am, and even Clove, who is considered of a small build back in our District, must be a giant to them. Their hollow

The went by so quickly from this morning to this moment walking to the rooms in the Justice Building. I can't believe it's the same day as I was sitting on the beach with Finnick. I still wonder what his secrets are but I won't ask again. It's his secrets, and he wants to keep them that way.

'I'm your friend' I say. 'My name is Cato. Don't worry, you'll be fine.'
My voice sounds tired and Clove notices it. I realize that having a tube sticking out of her mouth can't be comfortable for her, so I decide to remove it. She is conscious, so she can drink on her own
'Clove, I must remove it. It won't be pleasant, but it won't hurt, I promise' I say as calmly as I can. Clove whispers something like "okay", so I slowly remove the tube from her mouth. Yuk. Clo

I'm awakened early the next morning by Antoinette yelling for us to get up. I scramble out of bed and shake Cato.
"Common, we got to get up. Today's the big day," I whisper into his ear. Today's the big day. We go into the arena today, my heart beats a little faster.
"I'll be ready soon, go get ready yourself," he groggily says and kisses my forehead. I practically run to my room and quickly get out of my p.j.s and into day clothes. I tie my hair back in a ponytail and look into the mirror. I examine my face, this may be the last time i see myself. This may be one of the last times I see Cato. I run back to his room, luckily he

We reach the first fire and no one is there.
"They must have just forgotten to put out their fire," Clove explains, "I saw more smoke over there though."
"Okay, let's go that way then," I respond.
Clove, Marvel, and I jog to the other side of the arena towards the smoke. When we arrive the fire is abandoned, just like the first one.
"Someone is messing with us!" Marvel complains.
"I don't think so, it's probably just a coincidence," Clove argues.
"I'll set up a few traps just in case," Marvel states. Clove and I sit by a tree while we watch Marvel set up a few rope and snare traps.

Cato and I are awoken by Seneca Crane's voice booming through the arena. I sit up startled and Cato grasps his sword.
Seneca says, "There has been a slight rule change." Cato and I look at each other confusedly and worriedly.
Seneca continues, "The new rules are if two people, from the same district, are the final two tributes, they both can win." I look over to Cato, shocked. We can both go home, be together. I have an awful feeling there will be a catch but I don't even care right now! I am so relieved!
"That is all. Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor," Seneca finishes and the arena goes quiet.

I wake up the next day to Cato shaking my arm, "It's time." I quickly spring up and pack up my bag. I check my belt of knives, making sure each slot is filled. I pull my hair into a ponytail and stick two knives into my hair. I shove a few more into my pockets, wanting to make sure I have enough artillery for the battle. Cato puts an extra sword in his pant-loop and carries the sword he favors.
I take a deep breath, "You ready?" My heart is beating incredibly quick, either from the adrenaline of a kill or the fear of death.

Her eyes are rimmed in earthy tones and her lashes are velvety. And then she opens her eyes. I know the look so well and I know this was all designed to hurt me.

Luckily, Thresh turned to the Firegirl already and I dash last few yards. I see a dent in her skull and swallow hard. What can I do?! I had a first aid training, but not anything like this.

But she doesnt, inside the Cornucopia, darts the sly girl from District 5, snatches her bag and sprints towards the forest. Maybe she's the one Cato and I should be concerned about. Especially if she made it this far. Impressive. But I focus my attention back on the District 12 pack. I don't care if Thresh comes around and snatches his.

Snap! The lifeless corspe falls to the ground. What used to be the district 3 male, is now a lifeless being. The whites of his eyes showing, nearly unbearable to look at. I turn away and see what remains of our supplies. That's why Cato killed him in the first place, he knows and so do I, that he was suppose to guard those supplies. He failed. The cannon fires and Cato rounds up any weapons from the rack that was under the shade and protection of our barriers.
Cato and Clove begin to walk away from the Cornucopia. There's no reason to stay here, no supplies, no campsite, and in my opinion, no allience. I think back to when I first left home,
Sixty Years Later..The old woman sat in her rocking chair by the warm stone hearth, watching her granddaughter read a book near the fire. It was a peaceful moment, and the woman closed her eyes, and leaned her head back. It was one of the good things in living in District Seven, it had none of the hustle and bustle of the other districts. It was quiet. The only sound was the rock of her chair, the turn of pages and the crackle of fire. But too soon, the silence was broken.Sixty Years Later..8 months ago in General Fiction More Like This

The old woman's eyes flew open with shock, then she sighed. It wasn't inevitable, she thought to herself sadly. She was bound to ask some time.

I sit on a branch, eating one of the legs of the turkeys we were sponsored yesterday. Normally, by this point, most tributes would be starving to death. But no, right now, we're all eating a nice lunch, courtesy of one drunkard of District 12. At first, I pretty much hated Haymitch's guts, but after this sponsor gift, I have realised that he's either a genius, or just lucky with his gifts.
Tossing away the bare bone of the leg, I hop down from the tree, and land expertly on the forest floor below. I walk a little further forwards, and emerge in our little camp. Right now, both Hunter and Magnum are sitti

I munch slowly on the apple, savouring the sweet flavour of the moist red fruit. I finish the apple, and throw it to the floor, taking a sip of my water as I stalk the rich and fertile section of the tropical forest. Yesterday was good; we managed to take out ten tributes within the first twenty minutes; three tributes shy of the record. Oh well, even if I don't get out of here in record time, I'll still give the Capitol a show they won't soon forget.
I raise my spear as a rustling noise sounds out from one of the denser parts of the trees. Perfect, another tribute. It may not be the first kill of t
