The Twilight Games

Edward Cullen from district 7 gets selected to participate in the 20th Quarter Quell with his girlfriend Bella. And then there's Damon and Stefan Salvatore.


4. The Opening Ceromonies


I got to sleep in, unlike Bella who had to get up at the crack of dawn. Then again- I had to have a dozen injections on my face to stop me from ever growing a beard. One of them was a numbing solution, the rest were syringes filled with green liquid. Ok. That was the worst of it. It all went uphill from there. Except the fact my prep team didn't think I was clean enough- even after giving me two baths and a shower. They styled my hair- they made it go all spiky, using something called Gel. That's when I met my stylist- she shooed my prep team away, then smiled warmly. "Hi, I'm Elena. I'm going to be your stylist." She observed my naked body, "hmm, put this robe on, and I'll be right back." She gave me a blue gown, and exited the room. She came back about ten minutes later carrying a suit, covered in a plastic material. "Here, put this on." Elena removed the plastic sheet, revealing a normal white shirt, a leather jacket, and a pair of normal looking jeans. "I thought it was supposed to be something related with the district work." I said.

Elena laughed. "No, that was decades ago, where have you been for the past seventeen years of your life? Under a rock? This is the fashion for THIS quarter quell. Next year its back to normal." Okay...

I pulled on the shirt- it was tightly fitting, but not uncomfortable. Then I pulled on the jeans. Slightly baggy. Then Elena helped me into the jacket. She then produced a pair of bright red high topped shoes. "They're called converses, they were in fashion in 2012. Quite early actually." I pulled them on, I had trouble with the laces, but Elena soon sorted that out. She tied them for me. Elena quickly checked my hair/ makeup and redeemed me worthy of her inspection. When I looked into the mirror, I saw a stranger. Someone who looked confident and carefree. Strong.


Bella and I stepped into our carriage, Bella looked absolutely stunning. Skinny jeans, a small shirt that exposed her belly button that read 'you mad bro?' She was wearing a baseball cap. Seriously old-fashioned.

The horses moved forward, district one in the front leading in ascending order until district twelve. When the crowd saw us- from district 7, in completely different clothes from the other tributes they screamed and cheered, calling my name- throwing tokens at us, screaming our names. "Edward! Edward!" This went on for a while until we reached the city center, to listen to the opening speech delivered by Seth Clearwater, the mayor of Panem.


The first thing I did when we got to our floor was go to bed. I was so exhausted. I jumped into my bed, without removing my clothes or my shoes.
