Hunger Games Chasing the Sun

Imagine if Katniss and Peeta had never sparked a rebellion. What if Peeta died when Cato pulled him down and they where both killed by the muttations. This story explores the life of one girl who goes into the arena, but its not just like any hunger games... Read on to find out more...


19. Nobody Compares

It's a career. Talon.

I prepare myself. This is surely where I will meet my death. He raises a knife, but drops it.

"I can't do it, they sent me to kill you, but I just can't" he says

"Please, just kill me, I'm dead anyway" I plead

He doesn't. He just stares at me.

"How have you become this? You're the girl who scored 12, the girl who tried to chase the sun, even when it seemed pointless. What have they done to you?" he asks

"I don't care anymore" I say 

"Don't let them do this, you're stronger than they are, I have no family left, no one to live for, that's why I volunteered. surely you have something left to fight for?"

I think about my family. I think about Gale. I think about Katniss. He's right. I'm not the girl, who volunteered for the hunger games and failed, I'm not the girl who had no one left to fight for.

At that point another career calls Talon. He rushes off.

"I didn't hear the canon, did you kill her?" Merope asks

"No, I couldn't" Talon replys

"Where is she then, i'll finish her off" Marko shouts

"No, stop, we have to stop" 

At that point I hear a sickening bang. The canon booms, it echoes through the trees. 

Talon is dead!

He wanted to stand up for me, even though he thought I had given up. I will add him to the list of people I have to win for. I repeat in my head...

"My name is Cassidy Mellark, I am Peeta's sister, I swore to fight for him, and that's what I will do, I will always love Gale, even though he doesn't love me, and most importantly, I am stronger than the capitol."
