1. Preparing...

Here I am again, it's the same every year. One day, could change your life if you live in Panem. On this day every year, the people of districts 1-12 wait, they wait for the reaping. Ask anyone in Panem, whats it like on reaping day? They won't answer, they will stare into space, thinking about loved ones they have lost due to the reaping, due to the games. In district 12 everyone has lost someone at the reaping. I have lost my brother. My dear brother, Peeta. I can picture him now at the reaping, 2 years ago today. His face as pale as the girl who had just been called. Katniss Everdeen. He loved her, but she let him down. Why couldn't Cato have taken her down. Peeta deserved to live. And where is Katniss now? Living in the victors village, with her family. Her boy friend Gale, her mother and her little sister. Oh how I hate little Primrose. If she hadn't been picked, maybe Peeta would still be alive. 

"Cass" my brother, Darius called. "It's time to go" I hear the sadness in his voice. He doesn't want to lose another sibling.

"Coming" I call. I smooth my bedspread and run my fingers down my leather jacket, it used to be my father's but he gave it to me after he hurt his leg. The leather feels like butter between my fingers.I'm interpreted by Darius... 

"Cassidy" he's yelling now. "The peacekeepers are getting impatient".

I take one final look in the mirror. I almost look pretty. Blue dress and my hair in a long braid down my back.  I take one final glance around my room. Knowing that it may be the last time. We don't take any chances in district 12.
