1. The Reaping
My name is Katniss Everdeen i live in district 12 where i have to hunt and trade for food for my family. I have a sister Primrose and my mother. My dad? well he died in a mining accident and i became the one who takes care in my famly. In Panem there are 12 districts, and each year they thake 2 kids, one girl and 1 boy from each district and make them fight to the death in an arena until there is 1 victor, if i get choosen, i wint win, we only had 1 victor who is always drunk.
My love? Niall. Niall Horan. We arent dating but we both are in love, Niall has 1 brother named Greg. Niall and me are the same age in the same grade in the same school. We may love each other but we are best friends. Everyone can see that we are in love, how? I really dont know.
Today is the reaping and Primrose and I are getting ready. Before i got ready Niall gave me a mockingjay pin and i put it on my dress. After the speech given Effie goes into the girls' glass bowl and pulled out a slip. " Primrose Everdeen" Effie said clearly into the mic. My heart stopped and i looked at Niall who was also freaking out. Without thinking i said " I volunteer as tribute" everything goes deep silent and all eyes are on me. I get up on the stage and tell them my name. Then everyone put 3 fingers on their lips and raised it up at me. It meant that like it was giving respect to someone they love, it was because I volunteered. Effie went to the boys' glass bowl, before she said the name my heart stopped because i could see the name. Me, a tribute, seeing the name knowing i will have to fight this person, i felt like fallling on my knees and crying, my face so pale wondering I cant and wont win. " Niall Horan" Effie said, people gasping knowing we both love each other.
Niall looked at me so bravely but i knew he was as sad as me, knowing if one of us win, we will be heart broken. I dont know what i will do if we ever go face to face. Effie takes us to the train and on the way to the capitol and asks if we know each other but none of us answer, the whole way we only talk to Haymitch who is our mentor and Effie. Niall and i dont talk to each other knowing either the other tributes kill us or we kill each other.
