The Perks of The Hunger Games

For the Fan-fiction crossover competition. When Charlie is reaped into the Hunger Games, he really doesn't expect he is going to win. He's quiet, small, and not the bravest, but definitely the most observant. This is his journey through the games. In the style of Stephen Chbosky.


11. Day Five

Dear Friend,

I can't move. My legs are stiff with cold, and my ribs are swollen and a funny purple color. They are definitely broken. My arm is twisted and about double it's usual size. I'm a mess. What I want most is to go home, and sit in front of the fire, with Sam and Patrick, talking about school, discussing some other kid that got reaped and died. Even if I win this, I don't want a life of luxury, I'd much rather grow up working on the train tracks, like my dad and brother, and be normal. I don't want to live alone in the victor's village,with my telephone and big rooms that no one will fill, with enough money not to work. I want to work.

I sit there all day, shivering uncontrollably and holding the pebble. Just a few more days, and I can go. I can last.

I hope you are alright.

Love always,
