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.


6. Tension

That night, my head is crammed full of thoughts. My family, hunger games, Adam, Freya, etc...

I can't sleep. I turn to Adam, but his back is turned. I don't want to wake him. I don't know if anything can happen anymore. These games have ruined everything. President Snow, has ruined everything. I can picture him standing in front of me, laughing. I close my eyes and try to push all the thoughts out of my head. When I open them, daylight is flooding through a gap in the brick wall behind me. 

"Morning" Adam smiles at me

"Yea, hi" I mumble, still half asleep

"Well, then" he turns away, crossly

"I'm sorry, I'm so tired"

"Couldn't sleep last night?"

I nod

"Same, I was awake nearly the whole night. What have we done Aria, we volunteered!" 

"You volunteered" I correct him

"I volunteered, sorry. But seriously, I'm so stupid. What about my family, I have a 6 year old sister"

"Don't worry, there is a way out!" I comfort him


"You have to win. I'll help you. There's nothing left for me, no family, nothing. "


"Why not?" I don't see how he couldn't agree with my plan

"That means you die" he shouts "I'm not going to go through that, not in the games, not ever, understand?!"

I don't answer, I just sit down on the floor. Adam puts his hand on my shoulder.

"I'm sorry, I just don't want to lose you" he whispers. 

No one has ever said that to me before. I've grown up in a place where no one wants you, where you fend for yourself. Your family doesn't put food on the table, you have to hunt for it or steal food. To have someone say that they don't want to lose you is heart breaking, especially when you know that you will loose them in the hunger games.
