How the Hunger Games Started

This is about a time before the hunger games. This is how the hunger games started. It is different to how the book says.


12. Back to Reality

A few hours later I force myself to open my eyes. I am on my own, back in my cell attached to a machine that lets out a reassuring beep every few seconds. The IV drip in my arm is painful, and even though I am weak, I quickly pull it out. The blood that follows reminds me of my head wound. I felt it when I was electrocuted. I raise my hand to the back of my head to feel a neatly stitched line. I squeeze my eyes shut, hoping the headache will disappear, but it only seems to get worse. I gently fall back onto the bed, and cover myself with the thin duvet, ashamed of my stupidity. If only I had known what Scarlet was saying! 

"Aria!" Adam's voice echoes in the cell. 

"Adam!" I quickly rush to the door and put my hands through the bars. He takes them before looking at me. 

"I thought I had lost you," He shifts about awkwardly "You know, back there, scariest moment of my life!" 

I smile, glad to know I mean something to someone. 

His grip tightens. "Don't ever do that again!" His voice is stern, insistent. 

I nod. "Sorry." 

He presses a kiss to my forehead. 

"For what?" 

I sigh, "Everything, I'm a wreck!" Just promise me something Adam!" 


"In the arena, if it's a choice between your life or mine, always choose yours!" 

"Are you kidding?" He says "After everything we've, you've been through!" 

"Please Adam." I open my eyes wide and try to make him say the words I am looking for. "Because I promise that whatever I do, I will always help you win, even if it means dying!" 

And eventually, even though I know he doesn't mean it, he says sorrowfully... 

"I promise."
