4. I Saved You, Now Save Me

I… I didn't know what to do. I was frozen in my own mind. No thoughts. No life, just dead. I started to notice that a tear fell down past my cheek and on to the cement ground. I didn't have time to worry about Gabby because she only had 3 slips of paper out of thousands. I slightly started to here Gabby screaming “No!!!!!! No!!!!! Autumn!!!!!! Help!!” I snapped out of it and started to scream myself. I also noticed the evil smirk on Effie’s face when she heard Gabby screaming. Then once, and maybe the last, I said, “No! I volunteer as tribute!” Effie replied with a big grin on her face rubbing her glove-covered hands together, “Okay! This hasn't happened yet and you’re the first! Step up onto the stage please!” I walked to Gabby and told her, “You’ll be okay. I’ll come back for you. I promise. Just give daddy extra love because you know that he is sick and whatever happens, promise me you’ll stay strong.” I hugged her and told her I loved her. I went on stage trying to bear the fact how much Gabby was crying. I look at the other people and I am so frightened. What’s going to happen now? Am I going to die? If I did, what will happen to Gabby, and most importantly, my father? It’s just too much to handle right now. I don’t think I can do this alone. Effie announces a boy’s name out of the pure glass ball. She says clearly, “Rayd Cileniese.” I know him from a bakery that I used to trade from. I've never said a word to him. I met him at the bakery when I was sitting on the grass trying to keep myself warm in the snow storm, the day Rayd’s mother passed away. Rayd went out to feed the chickens and put them into their coop with this warm, fuzzy, light brown jacket to keep him from getting cold. At this time, I was waiting to get some warm juicy chicken that was fried. I and my family needed something to eat so I got out and went hunting. I threw a knife at a poor defenseless squirrel. While I was waiting for the chicken and Rayd came outside, he saw me shaking because I was so cold. He took off his jacket, threw it my way, and left. I thought as if he were throwing it to me. Why else would he just take off his jacket and throw it in my direction in a hard snow storm like this? I quickly grabbed the jacket and put it around me still shivering even though it had snowflakes on the back of it. I thought to myself, “Why would he give me his jacket and not keep it on? I’m really not worth it. I just don’t get it.”
