11. Who Ever Thought, The Capital Is A Snob

Today are the ceremonies and I am kind of nervous. I heard people talking loudly outside. I looked out my window and noticed a huge crowd along with the capital. There were Amara and Tera on the carriage waving and smiles glued to their face. The carriage was tremendously big and that was what we all have to ride on with our partner on it also. I have no idea why the capital would think we would need that much space. I was really nervous because if you screw this up, the capital will think your worthless and don’t even have a chance of winning. Sometimes the capital disgusts me. Amara didn’t look very cheerful though. I think she might be just nervous and is thinking about a whole bunch of things. But who can blame her? Carol came in and told me to follow her outside. We walked down the endless hallway and walked down the steps where we found hundreds, maybe thousands of people staring at us while I walked it line. Rayd was in the back and he was waiting for me to come. He said, “Why did it take you so long? I thought I was going to get on without you.” I felt so embarrassed I can’t even explain it. Those were the first words he has ever spoken to me and those were the words he had to speak. I told him in a mumbling voice, “Sorry I woke up late.” He looked at me then looked frontward trying to see farther up and counting how many people were in front of us. There were about 5 or 6 people in front of us. I saw Amara walk off the carriage with Tera and she noticed me standing in line. She turned her head and said, “I think my smile scared a lot of the people. Anyways, good luck out there!” I smiled and looked down at my feet. I was wearing some converse. I fell asleep in my clothes last night. I was wearing a pretty blue tank top along with some simple black skinny jeans. I just put my hands behind my back and took a step forward as the other tributes stepped onto the carriage. 4 people were in front of us now. I’m still nervous about going into it because I really don’t want to mess up. And if Rayd messes up they will think we are both worthless. It’s kind of like we both loose. My hands were shaking. It was chilly outside. I rubbed my hands together and breathed warm air on them. I had a headache. After like 10 minutes of thinking about this, we were up next. I and Rayd step onto the carriage and our hands are shaking uncontrollably. We both just went on with it and put smiles on our faces as the carriage went around the arena. I fake laughed to put the impression of an exciting type or something like that. Although, I have no idea if it looked real or like I was laughing and crying at the same time. On the last circle we had to go in Rayd said to me, “My face hurts,” I chuckled and looked at the capital. They were smiling. I was pretty happy to see that because I thought they were going to look bored. I shrugged Rayd’s shoulder and told him to look at the capital. He put on a real smile and laughed without doing what I did. We got off the carriage and I waved to them and they waved back. We went in the building together and when we got to our rooms we both laughed at each other because Carol took pictures and we looked frightful. With sarcasm, we said to each other, “You looked delightful,” which was hilarious to hear. I lie down on my bed and start to read my book. This book is really good. I’m on chapter 12 hoping to finish it this month. This month is May 16, 2022. Anyways, even though I don’t like the way I looked at the ceremonies, I hope the capital did.
