The careers

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send a boy and a girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live tv Sixteen year old Larah Thors regards it as a death sentence when she volunteers to take her boyfriends sister place in the Hunger Games and her boyfriend,Cato, gets chosen aswell. Fighting for both Cato and Larah is second nature. They are natural contenders being from district 2. Things may crumble when both Cato and Larah fight to keep each other alive. And to save the other they must sacrifice their own life. But to save him she will have to make choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. There can only be one winner


4. Tears

We were ushered into the justice building where we would say our last goodbyes to our family and friends. My mother and father ran into my room with tear filled eyes. My mother wrapped me in her arms and my father hugged us both. "I want you to know that we both love you very much and that you did the right thing back there. Callie would've never made it to the end. But you can. I'm so proud of you," my mother said. "I love you sweetheart," my father said before their time was up. "Goodbye," I whispered as they left. The doors burst open a few seconds later and Clove, Lotus and Lily rushed in. "Oh my god," "I can't believe your going into the arena!" "I'm going to miss you so much," they said. We had a big group hug before they left and Callie walked in with Gene. Their eyes were bloodshot and puffy probably from seeing Cato. Callie ran and wrapped her arms around me and Gene just looked at me with sad looking eyes. "I can't believe you would do that for her, I'm so grateful, thankyou so much, I hope you do well in the games Larah," Gene said before rushing out. Callie wouldn't let go and the peacekeepers had to rip her from my arms and lead her outside. I sat in the room alone for a while waiting to be able to go to the train station. Finally, after what felt like forever, the peacekeepers opened the doors and grabbed my arms. I didn't even struggle. I couldn't bring myself to. They led me to the train station and Cato was already getting in the train. He turned around and saw me walking through the crowd of people and sprinted away from the train. The peacekeepers ran after him but he was quick. He ran over to me and pulled me in for a strong hug. The cameras caught everything and this was probably all over panem. But I couldn't are less. I was in Cato's strong arms. The peacekeepers pried him away from me but we were aloud to walk together to the train. We walked into the most luxurious train I'd ever seen. We walked into what looked like the main compartment like where we ate, and hung out. There was tables upon tables of scrumptious foods. Some of them we ate at home. Like the bread rolls, soup, spaghetti bolognese and the cakes. My favourite was chocolate cake. There was also food that I'd never seen before that made my mouth water. Cherise walked in with a clipboard in her hand. She saw me drooloing over to specific foods. A pastry and a bread with topping. "That's a scone and croissant," Cherise said. "You can have one if you wish," Cherise told me. I grabbed a croissant and sunk my teeth into it. It had ham, cheese, tomato, salt and pepper in the middle and tasted delicious. Cato grabbed a boiled lolly and popped it into his mouth. We went and sat at the kitchen table and all the oast victors walked in. They would be our mentors. "Looks like we got a pair of lovers this year, that'd make for good television," one of the girls said. I think her name was Enobaria. Cato and I remained silent. "As your mentors we will be helping you throughout the games to win. Like sending you things during the game if you desperatly need it, which I doubt you will, and giving you advice beforehand. It took about thirty minutes to get to the train station at the Capitol. It was beautiful. Large skyscrapers, crystal blue water, large water fountains, brilliant colours. The train came to a stop and the people outside were buzzed with excitement. Chattering away with each other. The doors opened inviting in the warm sunlight.
