The 64th Annual Hunger Games.

In Panem there's a game. It's not a pleasant game, it's just sick.
Children are chosen to fight to the death. Killing each other for the prize to be a victor.
Becoming a victor means you are bathed in riches and are made famous throughout all of Panem. I come from District 1 and were one of the richest districts. We're also trained in the art of survival, I am actually quite skilled with knives.
In my district it's supposed to be an honour to compete in the games but in reality I am completely terrified to ever have to enter the arena.
My father once won the games and he has set a bunch of rules for me if I ever of them is to not fall for any of the other tributes.

And that's exactly why I am screwed.


12. Day 3

Luke's P.O.V


I couldn't breathe and the world was becoming a blur. I heard Imogen scream and faintly saw her run over. I heard the boy from 11 grunt and loosen his grip on my neck. Suddenly he let go of me and I fell to the ground. My neck was red and throbbing. The boy was holding his side and I saw Imogen standing beside him. She rushed over to me and helped me up. I saw her say something but I couldn't process what. She was screaming, telling me run. I still couldn't breathe well and I was gasping for air. Imogen knelt down to help me up, but there was a searing pain in my stomach. Imogen screamed. I looked down and say a knife sticking out of my stomach. Blood was spilling out and I wanted to vomit. I lay down in Imogen's lap and her tears fell on my face. The boy was grinning almost laughing sickly. He drew another knife from his pocket and was about to throw it at Imogen. I wanted her to run, to live, to win. I pushed her away but she was crying to much. She was to weak to run. Suddenly the boy was spewing up blood all over my shoes. Again I nearly vomited. He fell to the ground a trident in his back. 

Imogen's P.O.V


Tears were rolling down my face and I was shaking uncontrollably. Luke was still laying on my lap, pain and dread in his eyes. He was going to die and I couldn't do anything but cry. When the boy from 11 dropped dead nothing registered in my mind. The person who killed him was probably going to kill me too. I looked up and was surprised to see Sasha. She was frowning at me in disgust, I probably looked like a complete wreck. I looked down at Luke. Pain etching in his expression. He groaned. 
"You have to win, for me. Ok?" he croaked. I cried more. 
"You can't die, you just can't," I said. 
"There's nothing you can do, so please promise me," he said urgently. I nodded trying to keep it together. 
"Alright, I promise. I will win, for you," I whispered. Luke smiled very weakly. I felt his breathing falter and I cried out in pain. He was dead, my best friend was dead. The canon fired. I felt an arm on my shoulder. It was Sasha, I had forgotten she was even there. 


"Come with me," she said a little coldly. I shook my head. 
"I can't leave him," I said shaking. 
"He's dead theres nothing you can do. I am doing to take you to Hunter come on," she explained. I wiped away my tears as Sasha helped me up. I lay flowers on his chest and closed his eyes. I gathered my water, food and weapons. Sasha helped me walk. 
"Thank you," I said to her. 
"I am not doing this for your sake, I am doing it for his," she growled. We walked in silence for meters. Until we came to a very tall old tree. It's roots were thick and sprawled everywhere. Hunter was sitting in between them, almost hidden. 
"Surprise!" Sasha cried and let go of me. I nearly crumpled but Hunter was right there. I hadn't seen him for days. I crashed against him with a care and started kissing him. Our lips moved in synch and I realised how much I had missed him. Sasha coughed jealously and Hunter pulled away. 
"I've been so worried about you!" he exclaimed. I nodded wearily while he kissed my forehead. 
"What happened? You look..." he said staring at me, staring at my hands. They were stained with blood. With Luke's blood. 

"Luke died," I whispered. He looked at me sympathetically and gave me a hug. I was exhausted over what had happened. The Capitol symbol appeared in the sky and I watched wide eyed. I was pained to see Luke's face in the sky. The tears formed in my eyes and began to roll down. I had lost my best friend and I could never get him back. Then Carta's face appeared but I couldn't care less. The innocent girl in the tree also appeared and that was it. I leaned against Hunter. His heartbeat putting me to sleep. Soon I was in a deep sleep dreaming of Luke and I when we were young.
