12. Chapter 12

Snow's POV

*One month until Quarter Quell/Announce meant of the Quarter Quell*

Those foolish victors. I wonder if all victors are deluded just like Cato and Clove. Well, I will eliminate many of them with this idea.

"Plutarch." I call for  the Head Gamemaker.

"Yes,sir." He replies.

"We announce tonight. I cannot wait to see those silly victors faces."

"Oh yes, how great it will be."

"I need you to threaten Enobaria,Brutus,Ariel, Thamith, and the rest of the victors, all but Cato and Clove, not to volunteer. Clove will be chosen and if Cato loves her as much as it appears, will volunteer."

"Good idea,sir. I'll do it immediately."

"Thank you."

*Later that night*

"Hello,Panem. Today we are here to announce the Quarter Quell." I reach into the box and pull out the slip."This year, for the third Quarter Quell, past victors will compete for the crown. This is a reminder that not even the strongest can over power the Capitol. May the odds be ever in your favor."

Cato's POV

"Cato!" I hear Clove scream for me.

I run from the bedroom to the living room,where she is."Clove?"

"I told you!" I know exactly what she means. We hug each other."They are going to kill us."

"This was the perfect way. Too bad he found it."

"Cato,what are the odds of us both going on?"

"I'd say seventy-five percent. I mean there are seventeen victors. Subtract four, us, Talon, and Colin. That means thirteenth victors, not counting us. So, we have -"

"One in fifteenth chance of going in. You suck at math,Cato." 

"If you, I go."

"No,Cato. I can do it without you."

"Clove, we'll do it together."

"Ok. Deal."

It's obvious Clove and I will be in the Games. This is his way of eliminating us. Both of us.

As the weeks disappear behind us and the reaping comes closer, Clove and I train extra hard. By the time the Reaping comes, we are twice as lethal as before. I can throw knives and shot a bow and arrow now. Clove can do just about anything. We are as prepared as we can be.

*Day of the Reaping*

Clove's POV

I walk up to the stage and stand next to Enobaria."Hi,Enobaria."

"Hi,Clove." She responds.

"Looking forward to this?"


"Same here."

"Hello,ladies and gentlemen." Harley walks up to the mic. I glance at Cato. We are the youngest victors out of all the victors. All the others are in there twenty's or older."Ladies,first."

Harley is nervous. He hopes my name isn't chosen."Clove Springs." My heart sinks as he calls my name. I knew it.The crowd is silent."Now, for the boys." Harley picks a name."Brutus-"

"I volunteer." It's Cato.

"Cato, no!" I scream at him.

"Clove, together, remember?"

"No. He doesn't volunteer. No!"

Two Peacekeepers come up and try to drag me into the Justice Building. I pull out a knife at throw it. It hits a Peacekeeper in the leg."Clove,stop."

"This is bullshit! Put me down, or I'll stab you!" I scream."We don't have to listen to the Capitol! You guys, you just let your kids have the possibility of getting put to death every year! Why don't you do something!" Cato covers my mouth

"Shut up.Put her down. I'll drag her in there. She'll just stab you." Cato grabs me."Let's go."

We are shoved into a car without saying goodbye. We have no one to say goodbye to. This is all to familiar. This time Cato isn't trying to be my friend. He doesn't have to try. The car ride is short. We arrive at the train station and I board the train.

"Clove!" Cato chases me to the train car I claim."Clove, come here."

"No! Cato, this isn't suppose to happen." I scream at him.

"Shh. Remember what I said?"

"No, I don't remember! I can't remember anything,Cato!"

"Clove,our life isn't meant to be simply. It never will be."

"Cato, I was waiting to tell you this."

"Tell me what?"

"I'm pregnant."
