Lingering NightI lick my lips and stare out across the plain. Dawn is almost here. It's almost time. My right hand grips the hilts of four slim knives while my left hand is tucked carefully under my armpit. It's bloody cold out here. My exposed fingers are almost blue with cold and my ears are freezing.More Like This
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. Peeta won't, probably. I still can't believe Cato let him get away. He's assured me, though, over and over, that Peeta will die any day now. A cut like that left

I am sixteen years old and I live in district two.
I have long black straight hair, greenish blue eyes,
a little bit of freckles, full lips and a mole on the
upper left side of my mouth.
I am short, skinny, and petite.
My personalty is unique I guess.
I, sadly, am an orphan and I have been since I was three.
I was found on the porch of the training center with two letters.
One for me and one for the center asking if they could take
me in and train me for the Hunger Games
And they did. So I basically live for
Clove and Cato win- District 2I shiver at the thought of President Snow's face. He seemed so mad at me. What I did really must have been disappointing. Now I don't even want to go back home. My mother will be so angry. I don't know what my sisters will say, but I just don't want to go back to that place.More Like This
Cato grabs my hand and half-drags me towards our mentors. I whimper. I hate it when he gets mad like this. He seems to be mad at me, too. He's merciless now. As merciless as he was inside that torturing arena.
Brutus snickers at the sight of this. He smiles and takes Cato by the hand. He whispers something in Cato's ear, and he laughs. But Cato doesn't.
Clove and Cato win- The CrowningWe run towards the hovercraft. I go up first, where the ladder freezes me, and enter into it. Cato gets in second. He smiles the same smile when he saw Katniss up on the tree the night Glimmer died. A happy one.More Like This
I smile back. Fortunately, none of us are hurt badly. He sits next to me, accommodating himself. "So ?" He says.
I find myself blushing, so I quickly look away from him. "So what?" I ask, still turning my head away from him. I roll my eyes. He's so flirty.
He wraps a comforting arm around me. I glance up at him, then raise an eyebrow. He laughs, "Wow. You really have a bad attitude don't you?"
Clove and Cato win- The CapitolCato's words shocked me. I never would have thought he would say that. It's so hard to believe. The Peacekeepers finally come inside the room and tell us to get into a car. We get inside the car and it drives us into the train station. I don't talk to anyone in the car. Not Taura, not Cato. I just stare out the window. Once we get there, I get pretty excited, because I'll finally get to meet my mentor.More Like This
I jump of the car and run towards the train. I hear Taura yelling at me to slow down, but I ignore her and go straight on. The train stops and its doors slide open. I step inside. Taura quickly picks up her pace and meets me a few minu
Clove and Cato win- The victor"Are you joking? Do you know how hard it is to do this?" I yell things like this over and over. I don't even know who I'm yelling at. Because I know they won't listen. I kick tree's trunks. I throw my jacket on the floor and kick it until I'm bored. I seem to have gone crazy.More Like This
The mutts have been taken back. They're not in the arena anymore. The crumpled jacket has now been picked up by Cato, "Hey, these are your knives!" He says, "Don't get them messed up," he doesn't seem to realize that we have to kill each other.
I turn around and stare him, "You don't understand, Cato. I'm going crazy!" I yell at him. I'm not in the mood for
