I woke up this morning feeling really nervous. I mess with my ginger hair thoroughly. I didn't get much sleep last night. The Games have started. I got out of bed and went downstairs for breakfast.14Please respect copyright.PENANABct9rDvM2Q
'' I'm sorry it's not the best breakfast Rain but here is your fried fish.'' She handed me a plate of fried pollock.14Please respect copyright.PENANA3lXT4d5674
'' Thanks Mother.'' I started eating and I suddenly noticed the dresses and suit hanging by the washing.14Please respect copyright.PENANA8JoqOc4gYK
'' Now I have got you and Ocean dresses and Bay a suit from the Market. I hope you like them...'' And she ran off crying. I followed Mother and found her crying in a tissue. I went up to her.14Please respect copyright.PENANAnAXRKovfax
'' My babies!'' And she hugged me till I choked. The problem is she has a gift of seeing the future. I think one of us is in there.14Please respect copyright.PENANA6eT38Xgd4o
I came back inside and finished my breakfast.14Please respect copyright.PENANAhc7GCWTHcS
I stared at the dress. Blue and green. Like the ocean. Ocean's is just a white dress and Bay has a grey suit. I think Mother paid a lot for my dress. I need to thank her. This is a sign that it's probably the last time they will see me.14Please respect copyright.PENANArAsorcNWsY
'' Rain?!'' Bay called.14Please respect copyright.PENANAuycnCllSyp
'' Yes?!''14Please respect copyright.PENANAgQCoxekqVw
'' It's time.'' I finished eating breakfast and went upstairs. I grabbed my dress and slipped it on. A perfect fit. It brings out my curves nicely. I twisted my hair a bit for some waves to come out.14Please respect copyright.PENANAin6KMyXAvp
'' You look beautiful,'' Mother came into my room.14Please respect copyright.PENANAyZYLnA6IsF
'' I wish I looked like you.'' Ocean said behind mom. I walked up to them.14Please respect copyright.PENANA8JwK83YstU
'' No I wish to look like you little chicken.'' Mom smiled sad.14Please respect copyright.PENANAZMi6x4EuEa
'' Let's go,'' Bay leaned on my door. '' We'll be late.''14Please respect copyright.PENANAUd9SYws4fV
We walked out me by Ocean and Bay with mom. Ocean looked ill.14Please respect copyright.PENANAKnFg7Nk5fO
'' Are you OK?'' I asked. She nodded. We got to the Square and we were by far the first there. District 4's escort, Valora Edenthaw I think, was checking the microphone. Our only 2 living mentors, Laurette Arausio (the girl who won last year) and Finnick Odair (the Capitol Prince who won at the 65th Hunger Games youngest ever at 14) was sitting at the side of the stage.14Please respect copyright.PENANA0fAil7n0B1
Finnick's jaw was staring at the microphone Valora was figuring out.14Please respect copyright.PENANAawejodQQi5
'' Here let me help you with that!'' He rushed over and his careful fingers figured out the problem.14Please respect copyright.PENANAM2srizeDFu
'' Thank you Finnick.'' Valora said. She had a really high voice that strains a little. A typical Capitol voice.14Please respect copyright.PENANArGJ1Y49m5L
Laurette saw me staring at Finnick. She gave me a dirty look and stared back at Finnick. She obviously thought I had a crush on him, which I do, and I think that was the warning to keep back.14Please respect copyright.PENANAofhDzFQqw8
I knew Laurette. She was my best friend at School when I was 5. Until she turned on me because I invited my other best friend to my house. She wasn't nice at all.14Please respect copyright.PENANAwiaYJtyX6e
I gave her a look back and started comforting Ocean instead as she started crying.''Now, before we begin, we have a special message brought to you all the way from the Capitol!'' She squealed excitingly and I rolled my eyes. The screen behind Valora lit up to see a picture of suffering people. President Snow's (Our President of Panem and Capitol) voice said:14Please respect copyright.PENANAryVbzUgJgl
''War, terrible war. Widows, orphans, a motherless child.'' Pictures of suffering people came onto the screen one by one with the Capitol anthem. ''This was the uprising that rocked our land. Thirteen districts rebelled against the country that fed them, loved them, protected them. Brother turned on brother until nothing remained. And then came the peace, hard fought, sorely won. A people rose up from the ashes and a new era was born. But freedom has a cost. When the traitors were defeated, we swore as a nation we would never know this treason again. And so it was decreed that, each year, the various districts of Panem would offer up, in tribute, one young man and woman to fight to the death in a pageant of honor, courage and sacrifice. The lone victor, bathed in riches, would serve as a reminder of our generosity and our forgiveness. This is how we remember our past. This is how we safeguard our future.'' I saw Valora mouthing President Snow's words.14Please respect copyright.PENANAuEBLhaq7BW
'' Oh I just loved that!'' She coughed. ''Now, as usual, ladies first!'' Great! I swear women get it worse than men. Valora scuttled over to the Girl's Reaping Bowl. She waved her hand over the rim of the bowl and pulled a card out. I nervously stared at that card. It could be my name, Ocean's or Rose's. How mysterious that one bit of card can hold such a future. She went back to the microphone. I stared at Rose but her eyes were fixed at that card. Finnick moved a little forward on his chair. Obviously he was eager to see who is picked for this year's Games.14Please respect copyright.PENANAg7er6XUFV1
Valora coughed again. Get on with it then you-14Please respect copyright.PENANATnAOyaIOTZ
'' OCEAN WOLFE!'' Great it wasn't me or my sib... Wait WHAT?? I looked at my little chicken and she wouldn't walk; she just stood there. I gently drop to the ground. Rose picked me up14Please respect copyright.PENANAanDL8VVz2x
'' It's okay.'' She said but she shed a tear all the same.14Please respect copyright.PENANAwjEKKKIFpE
'' Where are you dear?'' Valora was looking for her. A measly 12 year old pushed Ocean forward. Git. Valora noticed this. '' Come on up dear,'' I started walking. Then sprinting. I heard Rose call but I didn't answer. '' That's it sweet.''14Please respect copyright.PENANAGj1h8ArRok
'' NO YOU ARE NOT HAVING HER IN THE GAMES!'' I shouted. Peacekeepers blocked my way to the stage. They shoved me back.14Please respect copyright.PENANAQyHukQpgps
'' No, no! I volunteer! I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE!'' I shouted at the stage. Everyone stared at me. I couldn't imagine what Mother would think of me. She's probably crying now.14Please respect copyright.PENANANVLrGvbpbB
'' OK come up to the stage then dear!'' Valora looked incredibly excited. I walked like it was nothing to the stage and stood by her.14Please respect copyright.PENANA3SU592FAU4
'' What's your name then dear?'''' Rain Wolfe.'' I said confidently.14Please respect copyright.PENANAUKDCeXsDdS
'' And how old are you?''14Please respect copyright.PENANA60ORsunEUy
'' 13 years Miss.''14Please respect copyright.PENANAfYra3AdJa7
'' I bet my hat that was your sister wasn't it?'' She looked over the moon.14Please respect copyright.PENANAO4RrH6p9KD
'' Yes,'' I said realizing I am in the Games. What have I done?14Please respect copyright.PENANA2QEQI6l6Lf
'' Well lets clap to District 4's youngest volunteer.'' Valora clapped but nobody else did. They all, synchronized, crossed their right fingers and lifted them. Respect. Valora coughed again.14Please respect copyright.PENANAF0d6bgGo0Q
'' And now for male.'' I stare at Bay. He nodded to me. She reached out at the Boy's Reaping Bowl. Please not be Bay.14Please respect copyright.PENANAvOVngDuGMe
She scurried back. Opened the card.14Please respect copyright.PENANAjO5YFO50UQ
'' BAY WOLFE!'' My whole family has been reaped. I opened my mouth wide and burst into tears. And I fell. Someone came over to me and gave me a hug.14Please respect copyright.PENANAfARsG2JmrK
'' Sssh Rain, Rain it's alright,'' That soft lilting voice overcame me. Finnick. He gave me a handkerchief and ran off. I stared back at him totally bewildered. I awkwardly stood up again.14Please respect copyright.PENANAdWy9kPMOvz
I saw Bay come striding next to me. He stared at me with so much sadness I cried again.14Please respect copyright.PENANA3Po9N3XT3S
'' Wow. It looks like brother and sister have to fight against each other.'' Valora smiled a sympathetic smile. '' Shake hands Tributes.'' We both shook hands, mine covered with tears. I dread to see Mother, her two eldest got to kill eachother. Who would look after them? Bay worked and Mother didn't. Bay's hand was shaking. He looks terrified. I don;t blame him.14Please respect copyright.PENANAJisBL9Dvw4
'' Here we are. Our Tributes from District 4!''14Please respect copyright.PENANAfK1NTmCGb8
They ushered me and Bay into the Justice Building. I gave one last look at Bay before the door was shut on me. I twisted the door knob. Locked. I think this is to realize you're in the Games. I already did.14Please respect copyright.PENANAgeXEoLHmEL
It looks like I am in the Games. And that is not good...14Please respect copyright.PENANAeo4HZPQDkn
