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.


19. They know how to hurt me

One pushes me to the floor, and when I try to get up he pushes his boot down on my stomach, like he knows exactly where to hurt me. 

"Well, well, well." The girl from 1 kneels down beside me. "Where's Adam, where's your boyfriend?" 

"He is not my boyfriend!" I insist. She laughs, in an evil wicked way. 

"Hey Theo!" she calls out. Theo emerges from the trees carrying a rucksack. "Pass me my knife, I'm going to enjoy killing this one." 

Theo grins at her and then frowns at me. 

"Whatever happened to teamwork? Shame you didn't think this one through very well." 

I try to raise my fist, try to hit her hard but she grabs my wrist and forces it back to the floor. 

"Ah, ah, ah, you knew it was going to happen!" she taunts. 

I hear a rustling in the trees, like more footsteps, more people coming to observe my execution. 

"Please." I groan trying to wriggle my wrist out of her grasp. "Please, I'll die anyway!" 

"Yup! Better to kill you know!" She raises the knife, ready to kill me. I shut my eyes, yet again waiting to be killed. I have lost count of the near death experiences I have had since my arrest.

I hear a loud bang. The cannon. Is it me? 

I gently open my eyes to see everyone, all my attackers, on the floor surrounded by pools of blood. 

Freya lies to my left, her breaths frequent and agitated. 

"Freya!" a knife sticks out of her abdomen. 

"Leave me Aria, he needs you!"

"He's a liar! He won't explain." 

"He's not a criminal, he's not one of us, he's here to observe the games, to see how it goes" she explains slowly. 

"Then why did he...?"

"He really does love you, he would die for you, but he doesn't have to, you're both getting out of here alive if you stay together, please Aria." 

"I don't understand!" 

"One winner, and one messenger." She says finally, before the colour starts to drain from her skin and the canon sounds.
