A Real World Hunger Games

This is like a real world hunger games, but is a little different. There are no more continents except for North America. A meteorite has destroyed the other 6 continents. North America's people can not thrive or live without the help of food being imported from the other continents, so, North America is broken up into 12 districts. Each district must find a way to make a certain amount of food for the other districts, and each district is assigned their amount. When the people of the capital realize that each district can't support the rest of North America's people, they select 24 people from each district, and each district has it's own game each year. Only two people will survive from the group that has been drawn. This helps keep the population steady. Only 2,ooo people are allowed per district. The games help decrease the number of people. Oh Ya, there is also only a quarter of the world left, just enough land for North America to stay on. They call these games, the Hunger Games.

  When we returned to the cave Garrett jumped up in excitement and ran over to hug us.

    "I was so worried!" he yelled while hugging me firmly. "And it's soooooo nice to see you, Derek!"

   "Nice to see you too Garrett." Derek said while ruffling Garrett's shaggy, brown hair. "And thanks for taking care of my little sis."

   "No prob." He said coolly.

    I just rolled my eyes. More like I have been taking care of him. Ok, so he had rushed me to the cornucopia to get the medicine, but think of all the other things I have done for him!

   "So, Darian has told me that you guys have ran into trouble quite a few times." Derek said while throwing his sack and spear on the ground.

   "Yah, actually a lot!" Garrett replied back "There was this one girl who-"

   "But, we have made it through all those scary moments." I implied cutting Garrett off. I did not want him to bring back those memories.

   Derek looked at me in a funny way as if to ask "What's your deal?" But I just shrugged my shoulders and headed to the back of the cave where I could have some time by myself to think.

   Derek and Garrett continued to talk about all the different things that had happened to them and how many people they had to fight off (Even though I was the one who had to be brave for Garrett and me most of the time) I just tuned them out and tried to fall asleep. I did not want to know if my brother had to kill anyone.   

   I thought about that girl that had just passed me. She could have easily killed two 12 year olds even if she didn't have any weapons. She had to of known that....so why didn't she kill us? I tried to pass the question off as if it was because she didn't have weapons, but I couldn't. For some reason, it felt as if a piece of the puzzle was missing.   

   Putting that thought aside, I began to think of how many people there are left in the games. If there were two dead in the beginning, leaving us with only 22 to fight against, 8 died, 4 died, and I know that that one girl died today, then there are 9 people still alive not including my knowledge of any more people dead today. 2 girls, me and the girl that passed me up, and 7 boys.
