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.


4. Court

We don't speak the next morning. He gives me the odd look, but everything feels awkward. And I wouldn't want to drag him into a relationship, especially when we have our sentencing today. We all have that one guy. and Adam is mine, but I don't want to hurt him. 

The Peacekeepers come to collect us all. Our trials will be held consecutively. I don't want to tell the others, that I know what our sentence will be. 

The court room looks more like a palace than just a room. But there aren't any jury or spectators. There are the five of us and 19 others, they all seem to be teenagers. They go through the other 19 and then moves on to our group. Theya goes first her blonde curls try to hide her tears, but everyone knows, because everyone feels the same. 

She can't hide her emotions though, when they sentence her to 10 years in prison. 

"All I stole was a couple of slices of bread" she cries. President Snow grins cruelly and Head Peacekeeper, Senneca Crane smiles a satisfied smile, as Theya is led away from the stand.

"Freya Roford" Snow calls "Come to the stand" 

She rises and walks forward. 

"You are charged, with trying to escape from your district. As there is no family left for you now, your sentence will be decided two days from now.

They finish with the others and move onto me. 

I don't show emotion, I don't want them to give me a harsher sentence.

"This is not your first crime I understand. Crane tells me you have stolen before."

I nod 

"But as your family, too has..." he pauses "Died, you too will be sentenced in two days, now sit down"

We stand up to leave, but he tells us to stay seated.

"Before you leave, I may have another, option, for you."

The others don't know what to expect, but I know exactly what he is going to say!
