“So we had a conversation, and I immediately trusted him.
“Letting your guard down…” Shawna says.
I ignore Shawna and continue, “So anyway we made an arrangement to go to my room and watch the reapings together.” I smile at the memory.
I chose to wear a deep green shirt, jeans and some leather combat boots. Cato was wearing a black shirt, jeans, and boats.
We go and sit down on my bed. “So, what’s the food for?” I want to know.
“I thought we might get hungry,” he says. “I love munching on unhealthy things while watching TV.”
“I like your way of thinking, Cat.” I grin and pick a cannoli off the plate, stuffing half of it in my mouth at once.
“It is 5:58 turn the projector on.” Cato tells me.
I pick up a piece of glass from the bedside table and runs my hand along is smooth flawless surface. The TV/projector flicks on and the lights go out Caesar Flickerman and Claudius Templesmith appear on the screen they are talking about something useless. Cato sits next to me, while I stuff myself with a vanilla cream puff. “And now,” Caesar says, “Here are this year’s reaping for the 74th annual Hunger Games.”
The screen/projector comes on starting with District 1. Both from 1 are volunteers, no surprise there, the female tribute is tall with green eyes and blonde hair, her name is Glimmer, ugh 1 has the stupidest names. The male from 1 is lanky, he has short light brown hair and green eyes, and named Marvel (exactly what I said about the names.) Then it shows 2, me volunteering, and then Cato, it cuts out the little part of everyone waiting before Cato volunteered. 3, the girl looks boring and the boy looks frightened yet confident. Then there is District 4, that’s the 3rd ‘career’ district, they have the least amount of Victors from all the careers, though some years ago Finnick Odair did win his games, no problem and put on a great show for the Capito (he is also very hot). 5 I notice the girl with red hair has a sly look to her, I’d better watch out for her in the Arena, 6, 7, 8 ugh hate them, 9, and 10 pass by quickly in my eyes, nothing to see there. But in 11, there is a large bulky male tribute and a young small female tribute who is too young, too young to be fighting to the death, the male looks like a promising fight though. Then there’s 12, the female there volunteered people in the poorer Districts almost never volunteer so this will be interesting. Caesar and Claudius appear back on the projector/screen, “this year’s games look quite promising, do they not, Claudius?”
Well off to see The Originals :)
