The Hunger Games?!

Hi. My name is Britnee and I'm in the Hunger Games. I was sent here with an obnoxious boy named Niall. My parents, Katniss and Peeta, have faith I will survive. They told me that if I "fall in love" with Niall like they did with each other, then I have a better chance of survivng... But the thing is, my cousin Liam and my friend Zayn are tributes as well. I meet Louis at some point along the way and we both have a mutual hate towards Harry... But I'm not too sure it's hate I feel towards Harry...

2. Tributes

I felt the guards grab my arms the moment I heard my name leave the womans mouth. "Hali!!" I called for my best friend, hoping for her to help pull me free from the guards but when I scanned the crowd for her face, she was nowhere to be found. My heart sunk into my stomach. I shook the sad feeling away and quietly made my way to the stage with the two guards at my sides. When I stood on the stage, the entire crowd looked up at me with confused faces. I wasn't surprised at their reaction... I'm a pretty quiet girl. I work in the mines though, searching for the diamonds my grandfather couldn't find. 

The woman that called my name stood next to me and reached her hand into the guys bowl, wiggling her painted fingers in the full container. She finally grasped a thin sheet of paper and pulling it out, she read "Niall Horan!" I could hear the mood in the crowd chage right away. Some people clapped, some even whistled. And I stood there, oblivious to who Niall Horan was. I looked around, searching for him. A hand rested on my shoulder, "Looking for someone, love?" I groaned... Not this Niall! I turned to face him, crossing my arms. "Nobody likes a flirt," I whispered harshly. He grinned and rubbed his thumb on my cheek. "Who says I'm a flirt? Perhaps I just like making you smile," he stalked off, grinning like a maniac and leaving me there confused. 

I sighed as we walked off the stage to join the tributes from the other districts. There was a group of teens huddled together, I assumed they were planning to turn against the rest of us. And there was a group of guys that turned to look at me with sad expressions on their faces. I saw my cousin, Liam and his friend Zayn. I ran over to them and they embraced me in a hug. "Hello, love." Liam's voice was soothing in my ear. "Hi Liam," I murmmured, checking out Zayn. He winked at me, "So I heard you got stuck with Niall." I looked down at my feet and nodded shamefully. "Yeah, but it's probably nothing compared to being stuck with Harry. God we would all die if he was a tribute!" I laughed. The boys looked at each other and frowned in unison. "Um, Britnee, he is a tribute this year," Liam whispered.
