4. Arriving At The Capitol

We arrived in the Capitol at sundown, my mother and sister staring in awe at the strange city. The oddly-fashioned citizens were waiting for us at the train station, like always, offering us colored notebooks to sign., and so we did.

 

On the big screens in the station, the news flashed and images of us a few minutes ago getting off the train appeared. Our arrival was apparently very important in the Capitol. We sat on a bright yellow bench, waiting for our cars to arrive. I was looking forward to seeing Effie, because I missed her annoying voice so much.

 

The vehicles arrived, and still no sign of Effie. I was beginning to get worried. The streets were very crowded at that time of the day, so our way to the president's villa was rather slow. When we got there, a few avoxes silently greeted us and helped carry our suitcases. We were led to the guest side of the mansion, and my mom and Prim were still admiring the building, making Peeta and I laugh.

 

Haymitch got the first room, Peeta and I got checked in together in the next room, and Prim and my mother got a room linked to ours by a small door. Our room was quite simple: a double bed, a big television, two nightstands, and a very big wardrobe. There were no flashy colors, no suspicious materials and most importantly, no sign of roses.

 

The roses were what scared me the most nowadays. After I saw President Snow wearing one every time, I started getting anxious around them as they reminded me of his piercing look.

 

Peeta plopped down on the bed, staring blankly at the ceiling as I was unpacking our clothes. I didn't see my banquet dress yet, nor had Peeta, because Portia and Cinna wanted to surprise us on the very day. I knew I wasn't going to see them during this stay in the Capitol, because they were too busy designing costumes for the next Hunger Games. I was quite sad because Cinna was one of the main reasons I loved coming to the Capitol.

 

I heard a knock on the link door and a soft voice.

-Everything alright in there, darling? my mom asked

-Yes, everything's fine, thank you Mrs. Everdeen, Peeta answered absentmindedly

We footsteps which meant my mom had left the door.

-Thanks for letting me answer, I teased

-Yes, he said with a bored voice

-I'm going to take a shower, I announced, heading towards the grand bathroom.
