Eyes Open

Tahlia Kay, a seemingly average 17 year old girl, reads through a magazine when her eyes skim over an add:
Without thinking her and her four best friends Hayley, Cassie, Georgie and Morgan sign up, having an idea that it could be fake. When everything they have set on that idea is crushed, what happens? Well, let's just say they are gonna have to keep their eyes open.


2. One Direction go hunting and the truth of the games

(A/N: Sorry! I thought you should know that Tahlia looks just like Katniss)
On Monday the next week after we had them posted off, we were in home room when the intercom came on: "Can Tahlia, Hayley, Georgie,Cassie and Morgan please come to the office. Thank you!"
I stood up and strode out of the room with the others striding just behind me. When I got to the office we saw 5 boys who looked incredibly familiar standing with a man. I heard Hayely shriek when the blonde turned around. What's wrong with her? 
I gave another look at the boys and realized who they were. One Direction. That's why Hayley shrieked. 
I walked up to the lady at the office desk and asked about us being called up. She gestured to 1D and the man standing behind me. What is happening?
" Hi, I'm Tahlia Kay and you are?" I said extending my hand to the boy with blonde hair. The sad thing about this is that he and his band mates are all miles taller than me. I'm only 5'5.
"Hello. I'm Niall and......" he trailed off because of 2 things. 1st, the girls were squealing and the 2nd and main reason..... All of the boys ran at me and gave me a huge hug. When we pulled away Louis way eying me funnily. I looked at my clothes and realized we were wearing the same thing: blue and white striped top, red pants and toms. Talk about weird.
"You like my clothes?" he nodded. "Oh! These people are Hayley, Georgie,Morgan and Cassie. I've also got one question...not to be rude or anything but why are you here?" 
The brunette haired one who I think is Liam speaks up. " We came to see you because they did the reaping yesterday and you 5 were chosen to compete from this country. We really don't want this to go ahead, but as much as we don't want it to it has to. You 5 are coming with us tomorrow so you can train and get ready for the games... Is that clear?"
Hayley snapped out of it first,"BULL SHIT!"
I stood there in shock of what he just said. It wasn't a hoax. It is real. We are going to compete. We could die. WE COULD DIE!!!! By the look on the boy faces and the way they are holding their ears,  I think I said that out loud. Whoops!!
The man from behind the boys spoke up" Can the boys spend the night at your house? We can't get into a hotel because the one we planned on staying in has all of its rooms full. Is it ok?" I nodded. 
"Sure that's fine. I'll just sign myself and the freaks behind me out if school and we can head over now."
Once we were signed out we went to my place. Of which I share with my cousin. Jennifer is my legal guardian until I turn 18. 
"VAS HAPPENIN JEN!!!!!" I shouted when I got through the door. Zayn frowned. 
"That's my line!"
I gave him a look. "I've had that line since I was 11 and I'm now turning 18. I think it's my line" I said with a hint of humor in my voice. He frowned again. Ha ha ha!!!
When Jen came into the living room she said hi to us then headed for the kitchen. The boys mouths dropped. 
"Is t-that J-Jennifer Lawrence?" Harry said. I nodded and laughed. 
"She's my cousin."
I looked at the clock. It read 4:05. Wow I've been home a long time. I then realized that I'm 5 minutes late for hunting with my friend Jacob (looks like Taylor Lautner). I immediately jumped up and sprinted to my room, got changed, grabbed my Bow and set of arrows then ran back down stairs. 
"Sorry guys I have to go hunt with Jacob. I'll be back by 7:30" that should be enough time. 
The boys stared at me in disbelief.
Niall spoke up " How could a little girl like you handle a bow and arrow, let alone hunt."
The girls ran from the room and the boys started laughing. I laughed myself. 
"I'll show you then, all of you. Get a dark colored track suit on and follow me." I waited 5 minutes and then we were off.
As soon as I opened the gate I saw Jake sitting in a tree. I climbed and joined him. The boys stared at us like we had 4 eyes. 
"What do I have something on my face?" I called down to the boys who were 10 metres bellow us. I turned my attention to Jake. 
"Hello Jay-Jay!" I shouted.
"Hello Kat!" he shouted back.
"Why do you call me Kat?"
"You remind me of Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games."
" I have some news and you won't like it one bit" I waited for him to nod, then I continued, " I'm in the fan girl games." 
He looked at me in disbelief, nodded sadly then climbed down from the tree.
I climbed down after seeing Hayley looking at me from my window and signing to me in sign language if she could come hunting too. I replied with a yes.
"So boys, have you ever been hunting?" they all shook their heads. Perfect! "Well make sure you stick with us. You don't want a bear to take you down, do you?" Niall looked scared. Even Better!!
We waited 5 minutes for Hayley. When she came down she was wearing the same thing as me. We were off!

In about an hour we had caught and seen nothing. The boys were laughing at me when all of a sudden a deer leapt into the clearing in front of us. I threw some leaves into the air and they traveled behind me. Perfect. I armed my bow and stood there marking it out. Twang! The arrow spead towards the deer and landed straight into its eye. Hayley threw 2 knives at its neck and we sprinted towards the animal. While the boys were staring at the once majestic animal, which is now covered in blood, I was carrying the deer on my shoulders. I may not look strong, but I am.
"Did you like the show? Niall, do you believe me now?" he nodded his head and ran back towards the house. Hayley, Jake and the other boys did the same except Louis.
"I didn't think you could shoot like that. Or even climb trees like that either. You'd be good in the arena." I blushed
"Thanks Lou. I hope I win because I want to be with my little sister. She doesn't live with me but when I turn 18 she'll be able to." Louis offered to help with the deer but I declined. 
When we got to the house I went straight to the shed. I threw the deer into an esky and started skinning and gutting the rabbits from last night and then moved onto the deer. I felt people staring at me, so I turned around. One direction were standing there watching me skin a deer. Oh great! The funny thing was that I had blood all over my hands. I ran over to Niall and Liam and I put crosses of blood onto their faces. They squealed and shouted "Ew Ew Ew Ew Ew Ew Ew Ew!!!!!!!!" It was Hilarious! Talk about being manly.
*At 10o'clock PM*
I was sitting on my roof, thinking about strategies for the games. I could hide my talent until we were graded. Then I could run the opposite way of the cornucopia and meet with the other girls. I was distracted by my thoughts when I saw Louis look out my open window, then look up. I smiled at him and he came and joined me. 
"Are you ok? Because you're up here alone and you're..... He was cut off when I put my hand over his mouth. He licked my hand . I didn't flinch. He bit my hand and I still didn't flinch. Then he tickled me. Oh God! I was squealing and laughing so loudly. When he stopped tickling me our faces were inches apart. We leaned in then Harry looked out the window and up at us. "C'mon love birds, let's watch this movie!"
I sighed and got off the roof. What just happened?
