Putting out the flame

I'm Avalon. A previous victor of the Hunger Games. A deal made that I would never be back in the games has been broken and now I'm here again facing people I know. The only 2 tributes nobody is too familiar with Are Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen from District 12. They're Capitol favorites which puts them higher on my kill list. But Finnick likes them. Should I?

6. Chapter 6

Finnick and I stood still. We both knew Katniss and Peeta would attack at any minute. I'm just counting down the seconds.

''Katniss, don't do something you'll regret,'' I say trying to get her to give it up. She doesn't though. I keep my bow locked on her. Out of the corner of my eye I see something that makes me stop. A wing. Not just any wing though. A mockingjay wing. We all saw it. And this is what gave Katniss the courage. 

She runs away while I'm distracted, grabs Peeta's arm and drags him into the woods. It wasn't the bow that scared her off though. It was the white fog moving towards me and Finnick. ''Finnick, run!'' We both run until we get to the beach. The fog was far behind us but we still didn't stop. As soon as we made it to the beach, we dove into the water. 

We're so weak we literally crawl onto the beach. When Finnick looks up he taps my shoulder. I look up and see Alli. She smiles down at me then falls forward. Behind her is Katniss, loading another arrow. Then aiming towards me. ''You killed her! You killed Alli!'' I take my bow off my shoulder and load an arrow. My hands are shaking and my vision is blurry from my tears but I manage to aim Straight at Katniss's head. 

''Don't do anything you'll regret Avalon,'' she smirks. ''I w-won't regret it,'' I say. She smiles. ''Well then get it over with,'' she says and smirks once again. 

FINNICK'S POV

''Katniss stop,'' I warn. She looks over to me. ''No Finnick, you stop,'' Ava says. ''W-what? Ava, come on. Are you serious? She has a bow pointed at your head!" I say. ''Just get it over with Katniss,'' Ava says. ''No-No!'' I reach for my trident which was lying in the sand. I grab it and turn back and see it. Avalon falling to her knees. An arrow sticking out of her stomach. 

''No!'' I jump up and charge at her with the trident. I know for sure the cameras are on us now. 

Katniss grabs my arm and smiles. ''Now we can trust you Finnick,'' she says. ''Wait what?'' I ask. ''Me and Peeta saw Avalon as a threat. But now we don't need to worry,'' she replies. 

I had to pretend to trust her. And she needed to be able to trust me. For Avalon. ''Okay. Let's go.''
