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 do...one of them is to not fall for any of the other tributes.

And that's exactly why I am screwed.

Imogen's P.O.V 

 

We got out of the train and made our way over to a tall building. Where all the tributes would be training. The bottom floor was the training centre and then your floor was your district number. Our floor was huge, it had oddly shaped couches, glowing ornaments. My bed was a king size and it was silk. I flopped down and saw a weird remote by the bed. As I flicked it on all the walls changed scene. I was underwater, in the desert, in a palace, in a forest. I turned and off, amazed at what the Capitol had or could do. I lay my head on my pillow, smiling like a fool. Then I fell asleep. 

I was awoken by movement in the room. I looked up to see no one there, but a knew pair of clothes lay waiting on my chair. I took a good look at them, comfortable pants and a normal shirt. Everyone was already eating breakfast, it ranged from bacon, eggs, sausages. I stuffed my face and then Destiny took us all down to the training floor. It turned out I was half wrong, you had to walk a long way till you got to the training centre. First it was the make up stations, which I was guessing was where we where heading. 

 

I walked into the one marked "1 Girl" and found three Capitol people gossiping. They straightened up when they saw me. 
"So which one of you is my stylist?" I asked shyly. They all laughed. 
"No where just here to make you look good in front of your stylist!" the man said. That confused me a little but I wasn't going to argue. They helped me up onto a long bed where I lay down. 
"My name is Maria, this is Oliver and Crystal," Maria said introducing everyone. 
"I'm Imogen," I said before screaming. Oliver had just pulled something off my leg and now it was tingling. 
"It's called waxing darling getting rid of the ugly hairs," he explained. I saw him prepare another cloth, as he set it on my skin the ointment oozed out. I grimaced and he pulled it off. They kept doing this until my legs were completely bare. They then bathed me and washed my hair. 
"Great see you soon," Crystal giggled and they left me sitting alone. I looked around seeing all sorts of make up and gadgets. Suddenly the curtain opened and a man walked in. He had brown hair and green natural eyes. He didn't have a touch of make up on him and I knew he was different from the other Capitol citizens. 

 

"My name is Daniel," he said extended his arm. Daniel? I laughed because his name was normal, unlike anyone else here. 
"My name is Imogen," I said shaking his hand. He nodded and I sensed he already knew that. 
"So what ridiculous costume do I have to wear?" I asked sighing. Daniel smirked and had a sparkle in his eye. 
"It won't be ridiculous, it'll be something they will remember you for," he explained helping me down to the ground again. He led me to another section where he was going to do my hair. I was still only wearing a towel. He blow dried it and brushed it out. Then put it up in a bun with two strands (beside my face) still loose, he curled those strands so they looked bouncy. Daniel then began with my make up, he said he didn't want to put so much on because it would hide my beauty. Pitch black eye liner that curled around my eye, mascara, dark purple eye shadow and pinkish lip stick. 
"Close your eyes," he whispered and went off to get my dress. Daniel helped me put it on and led me to a mirror. When I opened my eyes I barely recognised myself. I was beautiful. The dress had a black top that puffed out with purple and pink strands. It fell just above my knees. I twirled around and hugged Daniel. 
"We have a surprise for the crowd...half way through the parade....." 

 

Hunter's P.O.V

 

This was the stupidest out fit I've ever worn! A blue jumpsuit which was supposed to represent the ocean. Then a net covering it, covering me. It itched and was heavy on my shoulders. Sasha was also covered by a net but underneath she only had a bikini. I looked around and saw that all the other districts had pretty ridiculous out fits, especially 8 and 12. I looked around and saw a girl from 1 standing a few meters away. I crept closer to her so that I stood in front of her. I looked up and down, she was really pretty!
"Hey," I smirked. She rolled her eyes and walked away to her district partner. He was wearing a tuxedo with a pink tie. Sasha walked up to me and linked her arm in mine. 
"I think we should act like where in love, for the crowd you know," she said. I rolled my eyes and pulled away from her. Staring back at the girl. She caught me looking and scowled. Which made me laugh. Sasha turned me around, probably jealous. 
"Come on we have to get ready for this parade," she said locking her hand in mine. I turned my head to see the girl was already on her chariot. I climbed into the district 4 chariot and faked  a huge happy smile. 

 

Imogen's P.O.V

 

I climbed onto the chariot a bit unsure of myself. We were the first to go out. I held onto Luke's hand so we would steady each other. Before we got on the boy from 4 looked at me again. What was his problem? Suddenly the crowd screamed and we were out the gates. Luke and I waved to the crowd enthusiastically. Luke winking at the girls and me blowing kisses to whoever would accept them. We were half way down the track and I knew it was a bout to happen. I held onto Luke and Daniel gave us a nod from the crowd. Suddenly the fizzing began and I blocked my ears with a huge smile. Two blue fireworks shot up from the chariot and flew around the hall. All the Capitol citizens laughed and cried out happily. They finally fizzed again and turned into the words District 1. The crowd cheering loudly as we finished the parade. 

 

I grinned as I jumped of the chariot. 
"They loved us!" I said to Luke. He was laughing like an idiot. President Snow talked for a while and then we were aloud to leave. 
"I'll catch up," Luke said running over to his stylist. I walked over to the elevator proudly. As it opened I was dismayed to see the District 4 boy also there. He stepped in with me and it was silence for a while. 
"That was quite a stunt! My name's Hunter," he said grinning. 
"Imogen," I replied. He kept glancing at me. 
"Your very pretty," he blushed. I laughed but also started blushing. He was pretty handsome himself and he set off butterflies in my stomach. But I had to remember my fathers last rule. Suddenly Hunter pushed me against the wall. 
"So very pretty," he whispered before setting his lips on mine. I forgot about the world for a second and spark flew. My mind was fuzzy and I started to kiss back. 
The elevator spoke "Floor 1" and I pushed Hunter off me. He smirked as I hurried away form the elevator.
