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.


14. Entering the Arena

After the plan journey, we are taken to strange rooms with a long tube at one end and a bench at the other. 

"Scarlet!" I shout running to hug her. She pulls me close like an older sister would do. 

"I thought you were gone, they said you nearly died!" She holds me out in front of her, examining my every feature. 

"I'm fine." I insist turning my head away. "Which is more than I can say for you!" 

She runs her finger down the scar on her face. 

"They found out!" she mumbles "That chat we had cost me any freedom that I may have had." 

Guilt rages inside of me and I step away from her. 

"I'm so sorry." I apologize trying to gulp back the tears, 

"No, no." She pulls me back "I'm sorry, sorry I didn't tell you earlier!" 


"Don't win!" She insists "Even if it means dying! Don't let them own you 

I want to know more, but a voice appears out of no where, counting down. 

"Go, go on, in the tube" She quickly pushes me towards it. I feel like I need Adam to help me through anything now. 

"No!" I shout "Tell me!" 

"They'll use him against you, don't fall for it. Stay strong." 

Her words are quick but they seem to come from experience. As the glass closes around me and I am left in a claustrophobic space, I catch sight of her tattoo and remind myself that I will never become property of the capitol. 

Slowly the tube starts to rise, exposing me to harsh sunlight. In the center of the arena there stands a vast desert like landscape and behind that a large forest of trees. The sand looks thick and hard to run through. I search for Adam and find him standing on a pedestal two away from me. Our eyes meet and without words we communicate our next action.
