The 65th Hunger Games

Chapter 1: The Reapings

Alyssa

My best friend Irene and I head towards the auditorium, I am in a magenta dress with black shoes. We take our seats next to each other and we see the stage, it’s a stone stage gilded with gold. In the center is a staircase with 5 steps, and a golden hand rail. Up on the stage there is this year’s mentor, our mayor, some officials, and the escort this year, his name is Symone Senegal, he looks like a cheetah and a tiger threw up on him. Its animal prints galore. Our mentor this year is Dayna Purpura, A stereotypical victor from district 1. They start the ceremony and my mind begins to race. They play the anthem, speeches are given, blah blah blah, and then Symone dips his hands into the ball with the girls’ names on it. I hold my breath; I almost wish I had even once trained for the games like everyone else. No, Irene and I both agreed never to train, I have seen the awfulness of the games. When your 7 the worst thing is seeing your older sister being decapitated live on television. That stupid career from 2 killed her and walked away unphased. I vowed from that day to never allow myself to be like that. I silently hope my name isn’t called, I want to find Irene so we can celebrate that we haven’t been chosen.
“And the female tribute from district 1 this year is…”

Jory

I wake up and gather some bananas. After all, we do own the grocery shop on this stretch of district 4. We eat and then we take the ferry from our part of district 4 named the Catch and head towards the north where the reaping will take place, In the View. I walk in my black shirt and navy slacks with some kids my age and sit by my friend Caleb, he comes over and we talk about how the stage looks, it’s made of driftwood and seaweed, neither of us really care, we are just super nervous, his parents own the butcher shop next to our grocery store. We smile nervously, so we wait. I smell the salt in the air, I can feel the tension in the air, and I silently hope that some idiot volunteers from our district … and hope I don’t get picked. Tony Tilya the mentor this year sit with the mayor and after the anthem and some speeches, the escort for our district, a ridiculous 50-year old woman who tries hard to care for our tributes but her snootiness makes all of us want to barf, but it might also be the fact that she reeks of peaches. Oh and her name is Peach Princess, how coincidental. Anyways, she pulls out the name for the girl tribute and it is Vaticka, she is known for her ability hold a trident like a maniac. She trains like a career but that’s because she is from the Shine part of the district. The crowd gives applause because she isn’t sad to be going, she is happy and I kind of hate her for it. Everyone silences and then, Peach reaches her hand into the ball with the boy’s names on it…

Ella

Oddly enough, I have gotten used to the smell of uncooked wheat, it is putrefying, and no wonder our escort Owen Olsen always has his nose scrunched up. I sit in my assigned seat in my light green dress that mum made. Our mentor is only alive because of luck and she has never been able to get a tribute back home in the 30 years since she won, her name is Agatha Hazel. I daydream for a while and all of a sudden I hear Owen talking. He is standing upon our districts white stone stage and he prances over to the reaping ball for the girls, I hold my breath because my name and my best friends name is in there, at least 15 slips have my name on it, about 10 have Athenia’s name on it. I take Owen in, his ugly nose tucked in at odd places, his sharp pointy hair all dyed about 15 different shades of brown, and he wears ugly fuzzy fur clothes. This year he has added bright yellow lipstick and eyeliner to his arsenal of capitol ugliness, He dips his hands in the ball and I hold my breath.
“And the female tribute this year is…”

Jamie

I feed the baby horses and then ride their father to the fence, on our ranch at the fence I can walk a mile and be at where the reaping takes place. I ride Sader to the fence and give him a pat on the head and I walk to the stage, it is broken down and sad, I sit with Kara my best friend. The mayor and the mentor this year, Cleo Larson sits drunkard-like in his chair and then I blink and the district escort is about to call the girl tributes name. My mind begins to race, I tap my foot, I watch Cleo shake hands with everyone, somehow succeeding in giving everyone a grease stain on his clothes, okay seriously, and when was the last time he bathed. Stupid drunk. I watch our ugly mentor pick out the slip that has someone’s name on it and he instead walks over to the boys and lifts the boys out as well. He looks ugly in his bright lime green and bright orange, eww. Even I know those colors don’t go together. I look up and wait for his melodramatic self to just say the names already, after a few long moments of waiting…
“The female and male tributes that will represent district 10 in the annual Hunger Games are…”

Tenley

“Come on my Lee Lee”
I wake up to my grandma telling me this, I know that today is the day, my grandma 15 years ago predicted that I would be chosen for the hunger games this year, She is the district’s fortune teller, some call her crazy, but she is definitely right about her prediction of me going into the games, I can feel it. Regretfully, I have trained here and there when possible for this day, not much though. I look at my grandmother her wrinkled face, yet stunningly beautiful, everyone says we look alike, same long wavy brown-ish red auburn hair, same hazel-green eyes, same long eyelashes, same slightly upturned nose. I get up and eat alongside my brother silently. My mother weeps in her room; my dad goes to comfort her. My grandma has really raised me, she looks at me and beams, “You will do good, I know it, here eat an orange”. I take the orange she probably stole and chew slowly enjoying the tart juice that explodes over my tongue. In a few hours we head to the stage and wait for my name to be called. We take our seats and wait in silence, The mayor starts up and the escort of our district gets straight to the point and says, “for a change this year boys will go first”… “Hayden Pitt”, crap I know him, he is about 3 years older than me, he was held back a year or two because he had gotten very sick when he was younger, so he is in my year of school, not only that but when we have to pick the torturous fruit trees, I can remember how he used to always lift me up into the tree and we would work together, he even covered me sometimes when I left early to train in the deep steep valley around the district. The escort some man dressed in leopard print named Hugo Yazzmun walks over to the girl’s names and pulls out, my best friend Willow smiles at me, surprise surprise….

Alyssa

“Alyssa Peralta”, my heart drops and I hear Irene crying. I find myself at the top of the staircase and I face a sad crowd, they know that I have rarely trained for the games. I always thought it was stupid that they thought it was fun. The crowd is upset that they don’t have a good tribute to root for. I desperately want to prove them wrong now. Usually there are volunteers, but not this year. They move on to the boys. I stand there and I look at my ridiculous escort and he calls out the boy tribute.
“Ca-” he says
“I volunteer as tribute” says the excited boy who jumps forward to volunteer.
It takes me awhile but I put a name to the face, Andor Purpura. Last year his sister won, Dayna, she is our mentor, crap. I guess my mentor won’t be rooting for me.

Jory

“Jory Marronelle”. Oh crap… I walk to the stage and suddenly as I am about to sit down, I black out. I think Vaticka sighs. I am splashed with cold water.

Ella

“Ella Oathart” she says, and then a moment later she says “Grant Kloss”. Our district tries to be positive but it’s not working, we both know we will die. We have a sucky mentor and I can’t remember the last time when a tribute from 9 made it to the final 8.

Jamie

“Jamie Mare” and “Axel Zepherson”, uh oh I think to myself. I know I won’t make it. If the careers don’t kill me, Axel probably will.

Tenley

“Tenley Violetta” I walk up powerful strides and smile cunningly at the escort who whisks us away. I talk to my family and with a minute left my grandma hands me a locket, gold and it has a dried lavender sprig in it, my favorite. She tells me “every minute just remember you’re close to smelling the real thing at home”

Alyssa

The next hour is a blur, I calm my family down and then talk to Irene for a while, and she gives me advice and gives me a necklace made out of silver and at the end a single orange and yellow sapphire. She says “I believe in you Alyssa, you can win!” Then the peacekeeper rushes her out of the room. I am thrown onto a train; the mentors hurry over to Andor and talk strategy with him. I am ignored. I wander around until I find my room and I shower and go to bed.
I dream of Dayna being eaten by lions.

Jory

I talk to Caleb first.
“Caleb, I can’t do it, I never trained, and I don’t know if I could kill someone”
“Jory, you aren’t murdering, you’re killing to survive!”
“Okay, I will try but I’m not going to be anything like Vaticka”
Then I am loaded onto the train. I just parted with my family and friends. Tony talks to me for a minute but then goes to find Vaticka. I fall asleep in my room, Tomorrow I will be in the Capitol.
Ella
Oh crap. I act strong for my district but I am crying silent tears when I see my family. I board the train and cry my eyes out until dinner and then I sit and think of my strategy because it’s evident the mentor won’t. I hope the arena is good for hiding. All, I need is a weapon, I will get one soon. I will be there soon. I need allies; I watch the recaps and find a few allies I like, Jamie, Tenley, Jory, Alyssa. I want to be with all of them. I need to it’s my only chance of survival in the hell I am about to be released into.
Jamie
I part with my family and friends. Once I am on the train, I have a long talk with the mentor. Axel starts stealing my thunder so I storm off, The drunk and him re standing there passing the bottle back and forth, you know I might not have trouble killing this drunk if it comes down to it. Tomorrow I will find some allies, and I will prove my mentors that they were wrong about me. Interrupting my thoughts an attendant walks in and asks if I want anything,
“I found out 3 hours ago that I am being sent to die, um yes please I’ll have some apple juice.”
I slam the door in her face and roll my eyes and settle into a deep sleep.




Chapter 2: The Capitol

Alyssa

I arrive to the capitol and wave to the adoring people. They all are here cheering for me, scratch that, they are cheering for Andor, he is the one who volunteered. I am rushed into the remake building and meet my stylist, Anne Smith. It’s an oddly normal name for a Capitol citizen. After several painful hours of brushing, waxing, and grooming I am allowed to see the gown. It’s gorgeous; it is a shade of pink that goes with my skin tone great. Then after an hour of makeup, I get to look in a mirror. They highlighted my cheekbones, and made my eyes fabulous with jewel tones. Then I walk in the room that contains all the tributes. A boy from 4 I think, he has light brown hair and brown eyes, then he walks over.

Jory

I am in the tribute “holding tank”. I just endured four hours of hell. There are a couple of tributes there. I am dressed and ready. I am wearing white pants and a white shirt with a striped black tie, and a black belt. It is really laid back looking with the powder blue/aqua coat I am wearing. I walk over to the careers, all stereotypical, stupid and murderous. Except one, her name is Alyssa. We walk over to a sofa and we talk, we both find out that neither of us, despite being in a career district, trained for the games. I want her as an ally. Her partner is being lifted into their chariot and she hurries over there.
“Your Alyssa right?”
“Yes and no, I won’t be joining the stupid career alliance”
“maybe you didn’t see my reaping, I fainted, I won’t be with the idiots either,”
“Then why are you talking to me, besides I have to go and endure the city circle”
“Wait!” I say.
“What?”
“Allies?” I ask.
“That’s what you wanted?” she scoffs
“You know we could make a great team, I’ll see you in training tomorrow” I smile as I say.
She nods in assent, then smiles. I actually feel confident now. Her black hair, not normal of district 1 is quite striking, I feel like I can trust her.
“JORY GET YOUR BUTT OVER HERE, I WILL NOT BE LATE FOR THE CITY CIRCLE” screeches Vaticka

Ella

I sit in my girly city circle outfit and then walk over to a couch. It was such a rush, arriving to the Capitol and then the stylist and the mean prep team. The girl from district 10 walks over. I am glad, we sit together and then Tenley walks over.

Jamie

I walk over to another girl, Ella, I think… Anyways we start talking and we realize that both our mentors abandoned us. Neither of us wants to outright ask, but we both want to be allies. It is hard for me to say it, but I do.
“So Ella-”
The girl from 11 Tenley walks over to us and smiles,
“Um can I join you guys?”
“Sure” says Ella
“Hi I am Tenley” she says.
She has wavy auburn hair, it looks browner next to my bright red-orange hair, we both have pale skin, but my eyes are blue and hers are green. Ella I realize has hair like mine, but it’s brown not red. We all look kind of alike. Weird.
“So, do you want to be allies? We could train together tomorrow…” says Tenley
“Yes, I really didn’t want to have to do this alone.” says Ella almost right after I ask.
“Great” I reply.
“Well, I better get to my chariot” I say. “See you guys tomorrow”
“Okay, bye. See you soon.” Ella says

Tenley

I wave goodbye and get on my chariot for the city Circle, Hayden and I haven’t talked at all during this whole thing. As we wait I decide to try.
“Hi, Hayden.”
“I knew you would have an alliance by now”
“Well, I’m not sure, I”
“No I know you… your sure, I am happy for you, besides I already promised your grandma I would try to help you if she promised she could help out my mother when I…”
“Oh Hayden why would you do that?”
“Because I don’t think I have what it takes to win, yes I’m going to try hard and yes I will probably kill before I let someone kill me, but just forget it. I have made up my mind.”
I nod, We exit the stables and we see the crowds cheering, it dawns on me they are cheering for us… I do love my dress after all, and Ha
I nod, We exit the stables and we see the crowds cheering, it dawns on me they are cheering for us… I do love my dress after all, and Haden was always kind of handsome.

Alyssa

I finally reached for the doorknob to my room. Andor had hogged the attention in the City Circle and I might just have to kill him for it. Every flower thrown to me he took, He even tripped me on our way inside. The capitol loved him but they will forget about me, unless I win.

Jory

I feel bad for Alyssa, her district mate grabbed for all the attention, just like Vaticka did, she did her brave little girl act for the whole nation. I think I will sleep easy into my first morning of training knowing that deep down the shallow always lose.

Ella

Jamie, Tenley and I ride in the elevator together, I smile and wave good-bye when I get off the 9th level and escape to my room.
Jamie
I twirl my curly red hair the rest of the way to my room. Axel ignores me and I decide that he isn’t going to be on my good side. Tenley and I stand uncomfortably

Tenley

“Bye” I say to Jamie as she exits with that burly freak show Axel. Silently I’m terrified of him. He is big, and burly, he looks like he could snap me in half.

Jory

I get to the training center and I find Alyssa at knot-tying.
“Hey”
“Oh, what’s up Jory?”
“Besides being sent to fight to the death in a few days?”
She laughs and says “Okay Mr. Jokester”
We try to make snares but we don’t do well. But I manage to make a decent trap while she is trying to make a net out of grasses.
“Uhh, not to be rude but you’re doing that wrong?”
“I know... in the arena can you be the one who fishes for food?”
We laugh, but that time is going to come before we know it. We give up on knots and we go to the camouflage station where we find Ella and Jamie.

Ella

Jory and Alyssa join us and the four of us start talking and meanwhile I successfully camouflaged myself into a meadow of flowers. We all decide to train together and after going through all the survival stations once Tenley arrives we decide to eat lunch and come up with a plan. We discuss how the survival stations went. Jamie exceled at edible animals, I can climb great and Alyssa and Jory are good, or better than me, at knot-tying and setting traps. Tenley speaks up and says she thinks I was good at camouflage, and that she knows many edible plants and how to make fires.

Tenley

“Sorry guys the elevator was being temperamental” I say about being late
We talk over lunch and We discuss what We just did at the stations, then we decide to do Knives after lunch, We decide we each should pick a knife we are good at using.

Jamie

We eat lunch together and that’s when Jory asks Ella, Tenley and me if we want to be in an alliance with him and Alyssa.
“Well wouldn’t that be a large alliance?”
He replies simply “yes, but it will work, I can feel it”
“Sure” Ella and I both say.
Tenley nods.

Alyssa

We go to the hand-to hand combat station and Jamie and I do great using the combat knives in hand-to hand combat, but Jory and Ella don’t do great, Tenley does flat out horrible. Jory does better with the square angular knives and Ella does okay-ish. We all decide to pick a knife we like; I like the square angular one that looks like a butcher knife. Ella likes the one that can saw at the end, then Jamie chooses a long one and Alyssa likes the short one Tenley likes the one that curves. Then we have to go back to our rooms for dinner and bed, we decide on the elevator ride up, that we will focus tomorrow on each of us finding a weapon other than a simple combat knife that we are good at.

Jory

Its training day 2 and we decide to do weapons and such. Ella comes up with the idea of doing long-distance, then short-distance. It is a solid plan and we start at bow and arrows but none of us do great. Then, Ella walks over to miscellaneous weapons and finds the blowgun. She does great. All it needs is some poison at the end of it and she is golden. Tenley finds 4 throwing knives and hits the 4 severely lethal points on the dummy; she hits the femoral blood vessel, the heart and lungs, and the head. I am able to do the same; We eventually each get a hit from 25 yards away.

Jamie

I watch Tenley do amazing, I adore her as an enemy I would be frightened, at this moment I hear screaming from the other side of the room, and We look over, the gamemakers accidentally had an arrow shot at them from Penelope from district 6. She is terrified; she sits on the floor and cries. Her district mate goes to her but leaves her in a second. We decide to take a break even though Alyssa and I still need weapons. We go to the swords/ long knives area and Alyssa finds an iron sword that she loves, She wields it expertly and slices a dummy across the chest deeply 2 times in about a second. Then she brings it back and spears it into the dummy’s heart. She yanks it out and kicks the dummy over and over her head she swings and skewers the dummy in the back. My jaw drops. She smiles. But to show her up the two guys from 5, 6, and 12 come over and use various spikes and maces to beat up some dummies. I notice they are laughing at Jory.
Jory isn’t fazed though, he just picks up a butcher knife and throws it across the room, it sails at an odd angle and it lodges into the dummy’s stomach and the dummy falls over, Jory looks over at the gamemakers who seem to be staring at him, then we go over to spears and chuck a few at the dummies.

Ella

“So, need a lesson” asks this girl my height with long wavy blond hair and deep aquamarine eyes, “I am from 4 after all I use this everyday” she says as she picks up a trident and throws it into a dummy’s torso. She smiles wryly.
“No thanks I think I’ve got it under control” I say as, I grab the yellow and blue dye from the bins at camouflage and paint the dummy quickly, give it blond hair and deep blue eyes and I use the pink to do her fat lips. Just like her.
“Okay, now look snob, imagine this dummy is you, oh wait it doesn’t have knobby knees like you, oh well we will just have to imagine.”
I hear the snickers behind me from Tenley comes laugh. Vaticka glares at her.
Jory just rolls his eyes, “you were always a bully to everyone Vaticka” he says.

Jory

Vaticka makes a sound like a snarl
“Oh, that’s not attractive” Jamie says.
“Yeah, gross” Alyssa says
Vaticka scoffs
I start talking “while we have done this Tenley snuck behind you and has a knife, If we were in the games you would be dead, you thought you were so smart so much better, well you’re not, and please watch this” Ella then uses the blowgun from 10 feet above the ground and 20 yards away to blow a dart into the dummy’s neck.
“Bye” says Tenley.

Tenley

We all walk over and I come up with an idea that I need to tell them, but it’s a risky plan. I decide to tell them later just before we have the interviews, considering all our mentors abandoned us, Alyssa and Jory’s mentors don’t care about them, Jamie’s is drunk all the time, and Ella’s doesn’t care, and Mine seems to think Hayden is worth his time and he won’t spend any time with me. I tell them I have a plan and I will tell them tomorrow when everyone but us is with their mentors and escorts. Our escorts hate us too.

Alyssa

It is time for the training session with the gamemakers now. I walk in with a determined look on my eye, I do the thing where I slash the dummy then stab it twice in 3 seconds flat. I find some throwing knives and throw some but not good accuracy, so I stick to my sword, showing some maneuvers and then I find a short combat knife and fight a dummy with it. The gamemakers seem uninterested; They ignore me and dismiss me soon they were too occupied eating a platter of assorted fruits and cheeses with some white bread that I have never seen before. I walk to my room and wait for the scores to come on.

Jory

I show the gamemakers the skills I have at the butcher knife I throw it good and decide to leave the throwing knives for a finale, and I puncture the rope of a punching bag with a thin knife from 20 yards away. I smile at the gamemakers and do some more with the butcher knife close up combat wise, but they dismiss me when a long long tray of seared scallops comes over and shrimp cocktails are delivered, I smell the smells of home.

Ella

I play with my blowgun awhile but the gamemakers aren’t paying attention until I manage to hit a moving dummy from 50 yards away, while climbing the rock wall. That turns some heads, but I don’t think they care; a chocolate fountain has been brought to them. I sit in the elevator reeling from the crap I just witnessed. I hope for a good score.

Jamie

I play with that awesome axe and decapitate a few dummies, but they seem bored especially since a prime rib has been brought in with roasted mushrooms, I laugh at them, “That mushroom right there” I say “It’s poisonous”.
The gamemakers don’t like it. They dismiss me immediately.

Tenley

I walk in and throw some knives around, nothing special though. I hit some moving targets and some non-moving ones but they don’t seem interested they are eating some type of berry cobbler and ice cream. I’ve only tasted ice cream once before. I find myself a punching bag and swing it back and forth, it has a good momentum and I take a dozen throwing knives, I throw them at the bag, 10 out of 12 hit and rip the bag. I am dismissed.

Alyssa

I decide to watch a recap of the scores on the T.V. in my room. It is presented like a graph.

District Male Tribute Score Female Tribute Score
1 Andor Purpura 10 Alyssa Rubine 7
2 Kriz Phillips 11 Anise Argor 10

9 Grant Kloss 8 Ella Oathart 7
10 Axel Zepherson 8 Jamie Mare 7
11 Hayden Pitt 9 Tenley Violetta 7
12 Alexander Macedon 8 Iris Mum 2

Tenley

After we all make it to the lobby the day of interviews I reveal my plan.
“Guys with 5 of us we won’t make it, we have to do something different. And gain some sponsors, I have an idea”
“what?” asks Jamie
I say “we have to split up, just for 2 days though.”
“Well, what groups?” asks Alyssa
Ella speaks calmly “well it would be smart to strategically do it, maybe Me, Jamie and Alyssa then Tenley and Jory. I think that is our best bet.”
“I agree, It will probably be our best bet” says Jory
Alyssa looks worried, okay
“I have it planned though, when the sun is directly overhead on day 2, the day after we are dropped off, we meet back at the cornucopia, if someone else is there we meet around the edge of the cornucopia’s outskirts.”
“Better than than I could come up with” says Jamie, I smile.
“I’m with you Tenley, we can do it”
Ella and Alyssa nod in assent.
“I just hope the careers aren’t there when we get to the cornucopia on day 2”
“I will kill Andor if I have to” says Alyssa.
We laugh and head to meet our stylists.

Jamie

It is time for the interviews. The five of us spent the day doing nothing except planning. Since our escorts and mentors abandoned us. We walked around the building then we went to our stylists. My stylist put me in a lovely long deep purple dress with silver shoes. Alyssa is in a short dress that ranges from yellow to salmon to red. Ella is in a one-shouldered dark green dress and Jory is wearing white pants, gray shoes, a light blue shirt and a gray cardigan. Tenley who I adore is in yellow dress and strappy black heels, I am glad I know her. We all sit down in our respective seats. We look at Ceaser who has a Vermillion tie and hair and eyebrows. He looks idiotic and terrifying

Alyssa

I am first up for the interviews. My name is announced and I walk up on stage.
“So… Alyssa how do you think you will do in the games?” asks Ceaser.
“I think I will do great”
“Any allies?” he asks.
“Well, there has to be some surprise element in the arena, so no comment”
“Oh darling give us something to munch on”
“Well daarrllinngg, I can say that it will be unexpected, this won’t be your average game, and it will be anything but.”
“I shall keep that in mind, now how about that dress you look stunning, congrats to your stylist oh I want your lovely shoes” he says
“Oh thanks so much! I-” then my buzzer sounds.
“Well good luck to you Alyssa” he says excitedly.

Jory

I sit in my chair and watch Alyssa, she was okay… Then the pair from 2 is acting like ruthless killing machines. District 3 looks exasperated. Vaticka is charming and sly. I get up there and I hope I don’t fail.
“Hello Jory” says Ceaser.
“Well hello there.”
“So, what is your life like back home?”
“My parents own a little grocery shop and other than that my life is pretty normal I guess”
“How do you like the Capitol?” asks Ceaser.
“I like it, I guess I will be seeing it this time every year from now on, so I better get used to it…”
“Such a charming fellow, come hither, tell me your secret to pulling off white pants”
“Excuse me?”
“White pants”
“Umm well I don’t know, but your hair is very…. Stunning”
The crowd laughs and then my buzzer sounds. I know I screwed up, I was too nervous.

Ella

I sit on that dang chair on the stage; I don’t do anything special like the desperate ones from 6, 7, and 8. I just am myself and Ceaser turns it into a few jokes, but other than that, my interview is pretty boring overall.
He asks me what my life is like back home.
“Well, Caesar it’s not too interesting I pick wheat and that’s it, so what is your life like?”
“I have friends and such but let’s get back to you, How about that dress you have-” my buzzer sounds, I know I made everything awkward with Caesar but oh well, too bad for him. I don’t care.

Jamie

I walked up on stage to oohs and ahh’s about my dress.
“So, Jamie, do you like your dress” asks Ceaser.
“Well who wouldn’t?”
“Agreed, so what do you think of the games.” Says Ceaser.
“I am confident, I believe I can win.”
“Wonderful” Ceaser trills.
“How is your life back home?”
“Well I actually I tend to my family’s ranch, the baby horses I usually tend to. I actually bred one of the horses that was in the city circle this year, He was in the District 4 chariot”
After a minute of pointless talk and a few comments about my dress involving a purple cow the buzzer goes off.

Tenley

“Hello there Tenley”
“Why hello Ceaser”
“Oh don’t you look gorgeous today”
“Oh thank you, do you think I could keep these heels for when I go back to district 11? I just love them.”
“Oh I love that dress, it’s vintage and lovely.”
“Well a bit flowery for my taste but it goes lovely with my necklace of dried lavender, my grandma made it for me.”
“How do you think you will do in the games?”
“Well I can’t take these heels back in a coffin so I plan on getting back home”
My buzzer sounds and I smile slyly to the crowd and hug Ceaser, then I scurry to my seat.



Chapter 3: The Arena- until final 12

Tenley

I see Hayden in the hallway as we go to the hover plane and I say “see you on the other side” and I give him a big hug.

Alyssa

I wake up this morning and see my stylist Anne waiting for me, She smiles politely, I take a hot shower, and I know enough about the games to drink lots of water before we go. I am dressed in a plain white sundress, so we board the hover plane, Andor and Dayna are already up there. Andor’s wrist is split open and he is grimacing and tears are coming down his face, while his sister is yelling at him. I am next the medic does the same to me, I hadn’t noticed he put a tracker in me. While the medic sews me back up Andor has composed himself, He smirks at me and I smile back wryly. He snorts and swivels on his heel and walks away. I sit up in the front next to Anne, she is almost my friend. She reminds me to get a weapon, a backpack if I can and get the heck out of there.
“Thanks Anne”
“No problem”
“You’ve been the nicest one here”
“No problem hey, remember this when you’re in there, The dress you wore at the city circle, I made 10 years ago.”
“Well, what does that mean?”
“it means I waited for 10 years until I found the right girl to wear that dress, you were it your something special Alyssa”
“Thanks”
In an hour we are dropped off at the underground of the arena, I see the tube that will send me into the games, I see a small bathroom, and I sit on a stool as Anne does my hair, It is half up half down, The top layer of my hair is pulled up into an intricate bun with two small sticks in it. My makeup is done with a light hand and I am put in my clothes, Tight fitting thick pants that look like jeans but feel soft, I have on tall leather boots, that are easy for running, I am also in a brown tank top and a plaid shirt over it. I guess the boys will be in the same clothes just shorter boots and real jeans probably. I sit and drink water and nibble on a cracker, a buzzer sounds. “You’re up” says Anne.
I cautiously get in the tube. I am worried I might get stuck in it, My breathing gets heavy but my mind keeps racing at the speed of light.

Jory

I are lifted up into the arena, it takes what seems like an hour, but probably only 8 seconds. I am in jeans, short leather boots, and a plaid shirt with a brown tank top underneath. I am lifted into the arena and I look at the area after the gong sounds, we have a minute until the gong sounds and we run. We are surrounded all around by tall unclimbable walls of rock. We are in a flowery meadow, and there is a bright clear lake straight ahead from me, And from the other side of the lake is a small hill that has small creeks running to the lake, and it is flowery in places and quite rocky, I can’t see much farther past that, just some more of the wall close together, this is small. Although, the cornucopia is about 125 meters ahead that is the farthest I have seen it from the tributes, I see that everything is just piled on top not spread out, crap. Well we have our plans, so I spend the last 30ish seconds looking for my allies, It is hard to see because we are so spread apart, but Tenley is 3 tributes to my left, In between is Anette from 5, and Ian from 3. I make eye contact with her and find the other three across from us, each with a tribute in between them. I see Andor, Kriz, Anise, and Vaticka all next to each other to my right 2 tributes over, in between me and Anise is Penelope from 6 and Raff from 8. I wait for 5 seconds. I am awaiting this gong with so much adrenaline, I about fall over, but I shut my eyes and touch my seashell in my pocket, then I wait with a ready stance, Just a few more seconds to wait, Then Tenley and I will head out of here past the rocky hill.
I wait those agonizing seconds of terror and look at Raff next to me with a determined look on his face; I put the same look on my face, and wait those terrifying seconds.

Ella

I sit and wait and launch myself forward when I hear the gong. I run that long distance to the cornucopia, I get there first surprisingly, but Kriz and Jamie are right behind me, I see no weapons and I grab a pack and pray, I sprint to the lake to wait for Jamie and Alyssa; I push down Vaticka who was in my way. Looks like I have made an enemy. I get there with the backpack on my back, ready to run, I see Jamie shove Anise over and Alyssa pushes Andor to get out there. They get to me and we run on the right side of the lake on the right side of the rocky hills, we keep running, I see Tenley and Jory running together about 250 yards to my left. Tenley has a yellow pack, Jory has blue. I have a green one, Alyssa’s is orange and Jamie has a purple one. We Run up the hill and I see a few followers but they don’t have any weapons, it’s the group of tributes from 7, and 8 plus the girl from 6. I smile all the 12-13 year olds are together, they are so young they don’t stand a chance, but I forget them and keep running with Jamie and Alyssa
“Where to” asks Jamie.
“Anywhere” says Alyssa
“There!” I exclaim

Jamie

Ella points to a water fall a long ways away, we keep running, I am tired nut the adrenaline keeps me going, we end up finally reaching the end and behind the waterfall is a cave. We sit and wait. I catch my breath and ask
“Did you guys find it funny how there was no weapons? And everyone made it out of the cornucopia”
“There was probably some weapons” says Alyssa, what would we do for weapons if there were no weapons, I catch my breath. We wait in silence and check what our packs contain, each has a water bottle half full, Alyssa runs and fills them up and purifies them with two drops of iodine. We use the extra 30 minutes to sort out our items.
“Ella what do you have?”
“Just a first aid kit, that water bottle, and a blanket, oh and a pack of crackers, with a small stick of celery in a bag.”
Alyssa says “I have a pair of leg warmers, some rubber bands, I half a loaf of bread and the water bottle, oh and some gloves”
“Hmm, Well I have a first aid kit but it has a small scalpel, the only weapon of these games…”
We laugh uneasily.
I continue “And a pair of sunglasses the water bottle, some matches and a can of beef stew.”
We wait impatiently for something, for day two I guess, maybe Tenley and Jory have some weapons, we have nothing, it terrifies me, We wait into the deep night, and Alyssa says something groundbreaking,
“I haven’t heard any cannons”
“People can’t kill without weapons” says Alyssa
“Gamemakers finally screwed up.”

Tenley

“When do we get to stop” I ask Jory
“Whenever you want, up ahead is a small cave, we could stop there.”
“Sure let’s do it” I reply
We duck into the cave and it is rather dark, but we surround the opening with foliage that we collect for protection, I get claustrophobic and I hate the dark, so we ditch the cave soon and climb a large willow tree we get up it amidst all the leaves we are disguised. We quietly check what our packs contain, and my pack has a large blanket, a pack of matches, 2 full bottles of water, and a half a loaf of bread. Jory’s pack has a bag of rolls from my district, a water bottle, sunglasses and a bunch of bananas.
“Oh Bananas are so delicious” says Tenley
We split one in half and then share it.
“That was gross” Jory says
“It was awesome” I reply
We lay low in the tree, wait isn’t that lay high, and anyways we hid in the tree for hours till it got to sunset. We sat waiting for something to happen, but we didn’t know what, we haven’t heard any cannons so everyone is still alive, we are going to need weapons, and if we don’t get them soon, it won’t be a good show for the capitol.

Jory

The Capitol seal shows up in the sky and the anthem plays, Claudius Templesmith’s voice comes on.
“Well, my dear tributes of the 65th games, you must have noticed by now that there are no weapons in these games, we have had a sweet surprise for you all. Us the gamemakers, have deliberated on each of your talents and specialties in killing when we take into account what weapons we will give to you. In the next hour each of you will receive a gift that contains your special weapon or weapons in it. They will be delivered in descending districts order, first 12, then 11, then 10, then 9 and so on and so on. So be patiently waiting for your gifts.”
“Did you just hear what I did Tenley?”
“Yeah I heard it,”
*Thump!*
A silver gift is released and we see the shiny package floating down to us, Tenley climbs a few branches to get to where the gift is. She climbs down and opens it quickly.
“Throwing knives and a long curved knife just like in training” She exclaims
“great, you can do well with that” I say
“We watch the silver gifts parachute down in the sky, We see within 5 minutes 2 gifts go down in the same spot, hey that’s probably Jamie and Ella’s gifts” Tenley says
I nod; we are getting closer to my gift now.

more to come..............

Jory

“Look Jory” I hear Tenley say.
A box floats down into my lap, it is the same size as Tenley’s was.
“Okay, here we go” I say
I open the box and pull out the same number of throwing knives as Tenley, and a butcher knife
“good, I got what I needed. All that’s left is waiting for noon tomorrow to meet with the rest”
*BOOM*
Tenley winces and says “I don’t think that’s going to be easy”
We have catnaps, and sleep for half hour periods, but noise or the other two cannons through the night always seem to wake us up. “Hey Tenley I guess the careers are having their bloodbath right now”
*BOOM* pause *BOOM*
“That’s 5 total, I can’t believe it”
*BOOM*
“what!?!?!?!!”
I hope that’s it I think to myself, can’t they wait till morning?

Tenley

We wake in the morning to the anthem playing, we only heard one more cannon after the first 5, so that’s six total.
During the anthem I whisper “Just 18 people left”
We watch the showing of the dead and we try to keep from crying.
First to have their face shown is the boy from 3, then the girl from 3. After them it is the girl from 6, then the pair from 7, then the girl from 8. Then a clear sky reappears. Tenley and I glance back at each other. Tenley and I both shed a tear. We sit in impatience, and we decide to get to the cornucopia early. We slowly exit the tree, we walk carefully down the hills we heard 5 cannons almost in a row and we hide for 30 minutes each time there is a cannon. At the lake is a boy I think from 12, we try to walk quietly past him, but I trip over a rock, and his head whips around, it is the boy from 12, Alexander I think. He grabs his long sharp knife and charges after us, we both look at each other and nod, we stand back poised with each of us holding a throwing knife. We have our specialty knives at our sides ready to use them if he doesn’t leave, but he keeps coming.

Alyssa

All the cannons throughout the night were horrifying, we barely got any sleep. Ella got the most sleep, she stayed asleep most of the night, and we headed out to a tree outside of our cave and we climbed it to be in safety to watch the dead’s faces appear. We see both from 3, Penelope from 6, both from 7, then Chrysanthemum from 8. We sit remorsefully, and wait for noon to go see Tenley and Jory. We walk very slow and stealthily. We sit occasionally, As we make our way to the cornucopia we hear a total of 5 more cannons and we wait for Tenley and Jory because we are really early.

Jory

We both throw at the same time and Tenley’s knife hits his shoulder, but mine misses his other shoulder by only a few millimeters. His long sharp knife is raised above his head and he takes a swing at Tenley, but misses any lethal points but he does knock her knife out of her hand, but I leap up and tackle him before he can hurt Tenley his knife got knocked 10 feet away and he throws me of to get his knife, but Tenley throws a knife directly into the deep of his lungs, we hear a deflating sound and wince. Tenley looks mortified, he is almost gone, let’s just leave him, he will be better in a few seconds. Sure enough as we are collecting our knives that became strewn everywhere we hear a
*BOOM*
Tenley mumbles something and I look at her, Her hair blowing in the breeze and tears on her face, she walks over and helps me find my last knife, I pack it up and we decide to hide in a willow tree we see at the edge of the cornucopia, At this point it is maybe 5 hours past noon. And we pray the three of them are still there, we climb the tree so we can look for them at a vantage point.

Ella

We sit in the big willow tree. Me, Alyssa and Jamie. We all have our weapons, me my blowgun and darts, Jamie her axe, finally Alyssa with her sword. We sit at the top waiting for Tenley and Jory; we can’t hear them yet, so we wait. I decide to go to a lower branch and watch for them; Alyssa and Jamie wait at the top. We all sit and think about the 5 cannons that had gone off, who were they, who is left and more importantly how are we going to win? Anyways, I sit at the bottom branch and scope out the area, There is a boy from 12 I think at the lake and coming over the hill 2 figures, I whisper to Alyssa and Jamie, its them they are coming, but there is a guy at the lake, they might run into him, they immediately come down to watch, we want to help, but we won’t make it there in time. We desperately watch the battle fold out, and we see the boy from 12 die, he dies rather quickly and they continue to walk towards us.

Alyssa

We jog over to the limping Tenley and Jory. They are tired and most likely exasperated from killing their first victim. We walk up to them and tend to their few scratches then they show us their throwing knives and specialty knives, we show them our stuff, plus Alyssa’s short combat knife, Ella’s long knife that can saw and Jamie has the long flat knife she used in training. We look like a team. We walk to the big Willow tree that Tenley and Jory were in, it was close to good resources and close but far from our enemies. We watch the sunset and share pieces of bread from my pack. Then I look up at the sky that begins to blare the anthem and show the 6 new dead people. First comes up Andor. “oh my gosh”
“Alyssa were sorry” says Ella
“No, no he was never the best person to me it’s just I am sad that I am the only chance of District 1 having a victor”
“I know how you feel” says Jory staring at Vaticka face up on the screen, she’s dead too.”
“Ooh, my gosh I am so sorry for you guys” says Tenley.
“What?!” says Ella
We glance back up at the screen, its Grant Kloss from 9, Axel from 10, And Iris from 12, then Alexander from 12.
“We all just lost our district partners”
“What an unfortunate coincidence” I say
“Who says it’s unfortunate” Tenley says, she continues “I actually liked Hayden so I’m not any happier about this than you guys, but thin about it, we don’t have to worry about killing them anymore and we now have even more motivation to win this.”

Jory

“You are absolutely right Tenley. It sucks but your right.”
“Anyways who is left” says Ella, we look at her, “Well I wanted to change the subject, come on, we knew this wasn’t going to be easy, but we have to do it. Right?”
“Your right” says Jamie
“Okay” I say. “Well there are 12 people left.”
1) Alyssa
2) Kriz
3) Anise
4) Me
5) Caesar
6) Anette
7) James
Cool Raff
9) Ella
10) Jamie
11) Tenley
12) Hayden
And I think that’s it”

Chapter 4: Alyssa’s Ending

Ella

Okay we are all still alive, for now. We all climb into the willow tree. After that disaster we decide to stay here for a while. We fall to sleep and with more people we set up a guard, I
am taking the fourth shift, and I go to wake up Jory who is taking the fifth shift, but I see a dark moving silhouette, I quietly grab my blowgun, because I have seen another, there is two of them, I silently load my blowgun with a few darts full of some poisonous berry juice I found. I walk on a twisty branch of the tree, I try to see them better, but last minute I decide to kill and worry about who I killed later. I lower myself onto the ground, and hide behind a ficus. It is tall and leafy. They don’t even notice me. I know the cameras must be on me right now. I squint in concentration. They are here for a reason, and I need to find out why. My question is answered when they are crouched over to fill their water bottles. They glance over their shoulders, but they don’t see me, I position my blowgun to my mouth. A drop of sweat comes down my brow. I stand there ready to kill them both, but I can’t bring myself to do it, unless they try to kill me. I won’t be a monster, but I sure will kill a monster. They fill up their water bottles, and turn to me only 20 yards behind them, they see my blowgun and immediately jump in separate directions. They are smart, my chances of survival just lessened. I see the boy running at me and taking his bludgeon and raising it to knock my head off, but I shoot a dart into his neck, and it hits a blood vessel, he crumples to the ground, The girl comes at me, and I can’t raise the blowgun fast enough, she hits my arm with her spiked mace at the same time his cannon sounds. I feel blood rushing out, and start running. She follows, but I dodge behind a rock, grab my knife, and as she turns to me I lunge to her, I pounce and she falls back, I am on top of her, and I plunge the knife into her chest, I go to grab my blowgun and darts and run to the willow tree, but before I can I see the girl’s cannon hasn’t sounded yet, I shoot a dart into her neck and I immediately hear her cannon, I feel bad enough about killing her. At least I made it as quick as possible. I climb the tree to see Jamie, Jory, Tenley and Alyssa with their knives ready to pounce.

Jory

I hear the cannons and wake up to see Ella isn’t there. I freak out and we get ready to kill her killer, but she climbs up and we stare at her waiting for an explanation.

Tenley

“Ella what happened”
Ella responds to me “I killed Ceaser and Anette from 5. I snuck up on them, but I couldn’t kill them, then they saw me and came at me, and I had to kill them to live.”
Ella cries a bit, while Jamie cleans up her wounds. It looks very bad. The bleeding stopped and she takes some anti-bacterial pills, but the spikes of the mace got deep in her left arm.

Jamie

A day passes with nothing happening, we receive a water bottle and we all share it. Then, we decide to head out to hunt, but we leave Ella to rest.
“Shhh” says Tenley.
She sees a deer, but after she kills it, we realize we don’t have a way of cooking it so we stay and pick roots instead, but we run to the willow tree when we hear screams. A cannon fires and we run, I get there first to see a blood puddle under the tree and a lifeless Ella up in the tree. I see her body skewered by a short spear. I yell to Jory, Tenley and Alyssa to get Raff who is running away. Jory and Tenley hit him with throwing knives, but he keeps running, and Alyssa catches up with him and stabs him with her sword. I hear his cannon. I feel so much right now, sadness, relief that that little monster is dead, but I keep a straight face on and grab our stuff and leave the tree. I give the others their stuff, and we head out to the other willow tree about a half a mile away.

Alyssa

“This is ridiculous, but we made the final 8 guys, we are here, and we can make it. We will. I promise you.”
Jory speaks “We need to get rested up, you guys sleep for a few more hours and I will take guard.”
We all nod in agreement and we settle into a nice sleep.
“guys wake up, wake up, wake up” whispers Jory.
“why?”
“look”
We all look and see James trying to climb our tree, but he sees us and tries to run, but Jory jumps.
“Stop Jory, stop” yells Tenley who is soon behind him
He jumps down the tree, I see James the guy from 6 jumps behind a rock and then come around the other side and then lunge at Jory, Jory throws a knife but misses. Jory jumps onto him and swings his butcher knife at James’s face, but James has a clear strike across Jory’s chest and then jumps to Tenley who gets a knife in her stomach and she too falls to the floor. Jamie swings at him and knocks his whole body back; she raises her axe and brings it down on his spine. Jamie and I stand there exasperated and freaked out. About the past 6 hours.

Jamie

Alyssa and I make our way back to the cave where we were earlier.
“Jamie, what now” asks Alyssa
“I have no clue; we lost 3 allies in 6 hours.”
“And, This is just crazy, I can’t take it” she says
“Yeah, it’s crazy, Kriz and Anise aren’t going to be easy.” I say
“What about Iris?”
“She didn’t seem that good in training”
“I am thinking she got here by luck.”
“It is us, Iris and the pair from 2.”
“Yeah, well what, do you have any ideas?”
“No, we need to just lay low for once. It is just us left in the alliance, and we need to be more careful about what we do, so far we got lucky, but we might not be so lucky later on.”
We watch the showing of the dead, it shows Raff, Ella, Anette, Caesar, James, Tenley and Jory. Alyssa and I have trouble accepting their deaths. It is crazy thinking that they will never get to go home to their districts.

Alyssa

A day or two goes by, nothing happens though, Everyone is lying low, with only five left this is going to take only a day or two before the gamemakers interfere.

Jamie

Three days after the death of Ella, Jory and Tenley, I wake up in the middle of the night and realize I fell asleep while on guard. I begin to hear this shrill whine, it makes you crazy, you almost feel like your ears are splitting open. This whine wakes up Alyssa n a minute and we get out of the cave and walk away from the sound, but the sound gets closer, and closer, until it is directly behind us, a whine so earsplitting it brings tears of awful, awful pain. You try to run harder and it gets louder, so we finally duck in a cave, but the noise starts up again, but now we know why, bats. They fly to us and bite like crazy, we swat them away with my axe and Alyssa’s sword but they are flying so it doesn’t do much. We run until we come across a horrible sight.
“Alyssa its Iris, she is all bitten and dead”
“How can you tell, the body is so mangled up it is even foaming at the mouth and jerking around like crazy.”
“Your right, but see she has a small necklace woven out of some type of herb in her hands and it is dusted with coal.”
“It must be her token”
“Let’s go before whatever got to her gets to us”
We walk on and encounter a few rabid squirrels but we take them out. We walk along the side of the mountain carefully, we rest in a tree for a day by the cornucopia and we eat the rest of our bread,
“this will be over soon enough” is what I said when we started eating.
“that’s a scary, sad but true thing” says Alyssa.

Jamie

I wake up a day after we found Iris and it is extremely foggy outside, I can only see a few feet in front of me, it is like a thick wool blanket that never seems to break. I wake up Alyssa and she freaks out immediately.

Alyssa

“How are we going to kill when we can’t see?”
“Well let’s find out” Jamie answers to me.
We end up taking just our weapons and nothing else. No food or anything just our knives and our sword and axe. We sit on the cornucopia and wait.

Jamie

We wait a few hours and we start to see two figures emerging from the thick fog, making them appear to be so far away. But when I feel the sharp pain of a knife in my side I know she is behind me, I feel a sting and gushing of blood, but in a few minutes I will either be dead or victor. I swing back with my axe and hit a head I think, the fog clears and I see that I only hit a rock, and Anise is coming at me with her machete. I know I am a goner, so instead of trying to protect myself I heave the axe into Kriz who is giving Alyssa some trouble.

Alyssa

I watch Jamie be stabbed in the heart and before Anise can even take the knife out, I have plunged my sword into her heart, and then I whip round to face Kriz, who is lunging at me. I jump out of the way and he runs into a rock. I slice down his back opening up his spine and his vertebrae but he turns around and tries to stick a knife in me, but he dies. 3 cannons fire at the same time. A tear falls from my face and I wait for the hover plane to take me home…

… It isn’t until a day later I wake up in my old room to see my stylist.
“I told you that you could do it Alyssa”
I hug her
“Anne, I have to go home now, but it isn’t even going to be home. This sucks; I wish I would’ve died. ”
“No, no, no. Trust me it will get better”

I have watched the games recap, I am sent home on a train but in the 2 hour train ride I just have time to think, I cry in my room and think, no not think, I remember.
I remember the color of Ella’s dark brown hair
I remember the sound of Jamie’s determined voice
I remember Tenley and Jory’s teamwork
I remember the sound of the bats
I remember the ruthlessness of my opponents
I remember how Dayna hates me so much
I remember everyone’s surprise that I won
I remember my hair in a tight bun at the beginning off the games
It sucks to remember…

The doors to my train open and I am in the fancy new house I live in with all the other victor’s, I start doing something to get my mind of the games, I draw. I draw their faces. Every tribute’s face I draw with amazing detail. I send them to their families with a note to each one. I have finally righted my wrongs, and I try to live with myself.



… In just 3 years Alyssa has another girl from 1 as a victor, her name is Irene. Irene was 18 and lived with her best friend Alyssa for the rest of their lives. Cashmere and Gloss won the two years after Irene. So they never watched the games when they didn’t have to, and the two best friends lived in all happiness together.





Chapter 5: Jory’s Ending

Jory

I am on guard for the last shift and I wake everyone up when it is sun-up. I walk along the lake, wet dirt
in between my toes. I love it. They follow me and I eventually just sit down at the lake facing the sparkling water. I see some fish and I immediately wish I had a trident, or a spear, but Alyssa silently hands me her long sword, it doesn’t curve, so I hold it as a trident, and I poise ready to attack, but I am focused, ready to kill the fish swimming around me, I wish I had a net though. I stand silently for a minute, then open my eyes slowly, I see 3 fish to my left.
*SPLASH*
I killed 2 of the 3. Tenley starts a fire, not only to cook the fish, but also to warm everyone up, it is starting to get really cold out. The mountains are starting to get soft blankets of snow.
“I am goona go grab a blanket” says Alyssa
“Okay”
I continue to cook the fish and once they are done I split it up equally and divvy it up. We wait for Alyssa to come back, we watch at the tree, we see her climb up and we hear a scream. We run immediately. We see her fall with a knife in her neck and she hits the ground with a thud, Ella runs to yank the knife out, and hold Alyssa’s hand while Alyssa dies, we realize there isn’t any use in saving her. Tenley and I see another tribute in the tree, he jumps down and starts running, Tenley and I take off after him.
“On 3 Tenley, you go left, I go right” I say as we are running, but I look at her and mouth “2”
She nods.
The other tribute, Kriz from 2 keeps running, and running.
“1”
He jumps to the left, and we follow,
“2!” I say as two throwing knives enter his back, he jerks out in pain but keeps running, although he stopped a millisecond too long. I just needed that moment to grab Tenley’s forearm and catapult her onto his back, she jabs her curved knife into his neck and we grab the 3 packs he tried to escape with and run back to our campsite.
We hear shrieks in the background. Jamie and her flame hair is darting across from Alyssa to another figure trying to escape with the fish we left at the fire 25 meters away. Jamie is a bit faster and catches up to her in no time. Jamie still has a few feet but Anise the girl from 2 stops and swings back with her machete hitting Jamie across the cheek, Jamie swings a backhand swing against Anise’s side, and Anise falls to the ground, Jamie tries to swing a final swing into Anise’s head, but Anise jabs, Jamie in the stomach first, Jamie grabs her stomach but continues the throw and the axe lodges into Anise’s stomach. Her cannon sounds only moments after Kriz’s.
We head back to the fire and pack up our stuff and move to the opposite side of the lake, far from the cornucopia.
“What next” says Jamie.

Tenley

After Alyssa died, we all walked to the other side of the lake, and we picked some berries I recognized picking from district 11. Except they had this weird green lump at the top, and I remember the lump to be red. I figure they are just under ripe. Ella looks at them suspiciously; I don’t think these are it she says. They look really odd.
“ Well let’s test it then.”
“how” asks Jory
“well let’s leave them out and see what the birds do, they have much better senses than we do.”
“ okay let’s get in the tree then” says Ella.
We head up into the tree and watch as some ducks come by, the mother sniffs them and then walks by with her head up and jumps into the water. 6 out of her 7 ducklings follow, the one at the end, lingers and chews the berry, it takes a few steps and it’s body becomes stiff and it falls to the ground, stone dead. The mother duck quacks and swims to her child, but she understands it is dead.
“That answers our question” I say “sorry, I could’ve almost killed us all.”
“hey we caught it, it’s okay.” Says Jory.

Ella

After we didn’t get killed from Tenley’s berries, I load them into my blowgun darts and load my blowgun, ready to kill if we see anything.

We sleep in the willow tree that night, waiting for something to happen, and it doesn’t. So we head out, we want these games over now.

Jamie

We walk into the thick valley and we see some movement in the trees, It is only birds, but Ella killed them already with a dart, she only has one left now. She already used her others from being paranoid in the valley. We walk some more, and nothing happens. All of a sudden though, a sudden motion on our right jumps from the bushes and tackles me with a small spear.

Jory

Raff. The small kid from 8. He might have some murder skills, but no survival skills, because three suddenly bloodthirsty allies of his latest kill are facing him, he tries to run but Ella crouches down and shoots her last dart into his skull.

Tenley

We climb into a tree to watch the showing of the dead, first Raff, then Jamie. Then Claudius Templesmith’s comes on for the second time these games. His voice booms
“Tributes, there will be a feast and before you all write this off of your to-do list, listen, We have a 50-foot long table full of Capitol delicacies, and some district foods. You all could eat without having to worry about the other tributes trying to kill. So, I invite you to come eat at the table by the cornucopia.”
“We will not go, we have plenty of food” I say immediately.
“We can still try to kill” says Ella
“Yes, we will go to end this.” Jory says
“We aren’t the only smart ones, what if we end up being the ones who are killed” I ask
“Either way it’ll be over” yells Ella and she storms off. Jory and I follow walking, in a few minutes, we hear tributes running, and we duck behind a bush and we watch, Anette and Ceaser flee to the cornucopia, extremely fast. We follow them at a significant distance, and when they reach the table they shriek, there isn’t anything on that table but 2 raw eggs, they take them and dart off, I run towards them though with Jory close behind, Ella is ahead of me with her sawing knife. She runs and jumps onto Anette’s back and stabs her, blood flowing into Anette’s blond hair. Then Jory and I go to throw knives at Ceaser, but Hayden gets, to him first, but not in time to save Ella from getting a swift hit to the skull by Caesar’s bludgeon which cracks her skull, blood is everywhere and Hayden looks at me and Tenley and nods. Tenley and I escape into the willow tree above a few yards away and watch Ella and the pair from 5 being taken away by the hover plane. Ceaser and Hayden are battling it out, eye for eye and killing each other badly, Hayden finally gets a lethal hit to the chest and he falls back, Ceaser takes this opportunity to hit him in the back of the head.

Jory

Tenley and I watch the recap of the dead and share the rest of the bread we have left, and wait for the end, it is us, Hayden and James. Tenley and I wake up the next day and walk over to the cornucopia.
“What are we going to find here?” asks Tenley
“I have no clue”
“Well, that is stupid,” She scoffed
“Well, what else, do we stand here by a bunch of dead people? Either that or we get out of here, where do you want to go?”
“Fine, we will go.”

We find the original Willow tree and rest for a few days. The pain is unbearable for Tenley, making it unbearable for me. She is very, very heartbroken and it hurts her, but she fights a dark cloud of depression, I caught her trying to kill herself. This was a day after when Hayden died. She went to go pick some roots, and I caught her about to cut her wrist, she even tried to cut along the vein, for death. I tackled her and stopped her and I had yelled at her. “’Tenley kiolling yourself isn’t going to solve anything’ I shouted ‘You need closure, you need to kill Ceaser for revenge and then win and live out your life for Hayden, you know it is what he wanted.’” She told me she didn’t know if she would be able to live with herself, I told her that she needed revenge and she nodded in assent. We walked back to the tree.


That was 2 days ago, now it is going to be where the gamemakers intervene to bring the 4 remaining tributes to a final battle. Our answer comes in a few hours when we see James and Ceaser running towards us like their pants are on fire, they keep glancing back, but they stop at the lake and catch their breath. Tenley runs to Ceaser and I run to take James. Cesear hits her in the face and she falls back, her nose is flattened and bleeding heavily, but then I focus on James, and he decides to get tricky, he takes his long skinny knife and whips it around at me, but I duck and grab my butcher knife, I whack him across the chest and he falls back, I take a final swing across his neck, which begins to spurt out blood, I run to help Tenley, but she is bruised violently and on the floor, ceaser goes to take the death blow but I throw my butcher knife and it lodges in his stomach with enough force to throw him back and I take the bloody throwing knife in Tenley’s hand.
“Kill him!” yells Tenley in a raspy voice and watches.
I take the knife and am ready to kill.
“Stop” yells a desperate Ceaser.
“This is for killing my friends” I say in a determined voice and smile. Then I stick the knife into his chest, somewhere distant, a cannon sounds for James I hope. I run back to Tenley, another cannon sounds faraway. She is bleeding heavily, I can’t save her. Instead I run to the lake and soak a blanket in my pack with water. I run back to her desperately.
“Stop, Jory its no use, just stay with me for my last seconds”
“I promise Tenley, let me just clean you up, you want to look nice when you meet Hayden again in the clouds. It will be okay, have fun up there”
“Okay, Jory just stay here don’t leave yet”
“I won’t you are going to be the one leaving me, but don’t worry, I promise I will meet you there later.”
“Promise?”
“I promise Tenley.”
“It’s going, its all fading, Jory I am scared”
“don’t be. You are going to be happy there, don’t fret. Just imagine you in Hayden’s arms okay?”
Tenley’s eyes tear up and I soothe her as best as I can, I soak up the blood of her wounds and try so desperately to do her hair the way she did a few days ago, In a braid that goes over her shoulder. She smiles and giggles as she understands what I am doing. It feels like hours we are here, I know she is in pain.
“Tenley, go, don’t fight it, go have fun up there with Hayden”
I take the lavender necklace out of her pocket and put it around her neck. She smiles and puts two fingers to her lips and touches my forehead with them, I put two of my fingers to my lips and reach out to the sky with them. I am giving her spirit away. I am also doing the sign of friendship that district 11 has.
“Good-bye Tenley, see you soon”
“Bye Jory, thank you, Hayden and I will be waiting up there for you when you eventually come”
Her eyelids finally close and she grabs my hand. I hold onto it for dear life. A small cannon like sound comes to my ears and I put Tenley’s hands to her chest, above her heart and then I stand up, scared for what happens next, but happy for Tenley and Hayden’s ability to finally be together.



I assume I am lifted into a hover plane and some doctors somewhere have put the pieces of a 15-year old boy’s body back together. They know his life will be completely different from now on and altered completely.

I walk on stage with Ceaser Flickerman and watch the recap of the games, and they play the final scene where Tenley, James and Ceaser die in its fullness, taking up almost 15 minutes. I cry through the whole thing and all the way home on the train.

3 years later I meet the love of my life, Katilia. She lived in the poorer part of district 4 and I never had seen her before the day she became one of my tributes. I got her through the games and she won, and she came home and the year after she got someone through the games. It was two years after she became victor, that I eventually realized I was falling for her. It was nice being in love with someone who had experienced the arena.
She knew why I had nightmares
She knew why I stared out into space a lot
She knew why sometimes I could only take away the pain by swimming out into the middle of a lake.
I also knew why she did the same.

It was an entire 5 years after we met, and 2 years after we were married, when we had our first child, a girl, Tenley. We had two other girls and a boy. The other girls, Ella, Alyssa and the boy, who I named Jamie, I first felt bad about it, because the first Jamie I knew was a girl, but I figured the name could work for a boy or a girl.

In the darkest times of my life I remembered that one little promise, and it got me through the day. “We will be waiting for you up there when you eventually come.”
