It Runs In The Blood*Fight for Survival Epilogue*

Caden Hawks is a born victor. Born into a family with generations of brutal,ruthless victors, Caden is forced to train. Being Cato and Clove's son, he has high expectations to uphold. When he is thrown into the Games at the age of 14, will he become one of the Capitols youngest victors? Or will he die in the arena with his parents watching?


14. Chapter 13

I wake up in a hospital bed."Caden?" I hear Olivia's voice.

"Hey,Olivia." As I yawn, I see Harley is also there."And Harley."

"Hello! How are you?" Olivia asks. Harley just smiles.

"Great. I mean, I didn't really get hurt. Beside my finger."

"Caden, you need to have some manners! Poor girl disease!" Harley shouts at me.

"God damn it,Harley. Give him a break. He was fighting to the death. I thought it was good." I hear my dad's voice. Both my parents smile at me as the walk in the door.

"Don't I get a hug?" I ask. 

"Of course." My mom walks over and hugs me."You did good." My family isn't one to show a lot of affection. I can tell my mom was worried about me.

"Were you scared I was going to die?" I say as my mom pulls away.


"I wasn't. I knew you'd come out alive. I mean, like those girls said, it really wasn't fair." My dad laughs.

"You taking their side?" I laugh.

"No. Since when was the Hunger Games fair? Uh, never."

"Good point. When can I get out of this hospital?"

"You've been here for a day. Anyway,  right now. Olivia got you an outfit for the interview tonight."

"Hey,can we get we get a nurse in here? Service, god damn. You guys are slow here!" My mom rolls her eyes.

"Someones pushy." I say.

"Hey, I have the right to be. You weren't in here dying and no nurses were here. I've been through that."

"Uh, so have I." My dad butts in.

"Anyway, back to that comment. The outer districts hate you now!" Harley shouts.

"Settle down. Who cares if they don't like me? Why would they? I killed almost all their tributes." I shrug.

"Well, you do not understand. Cato. Clove. Any help?"

"I'm not good at parenting." My dad looks away. Harley doesn't like him. Harley gives him a mean glance."How about you, Clover?"

"Well, uh, you shouldn't of done that because it delayed the girl's death?" My mom twists her pony tail. She hasn't got any ideas.

"You guys! How do you raise this child?" Harley shouts and walks out.

"Well, got rid of him." I shrug.

A nurse finally walks in."Sorry, Mrs.Hawks for the delay."

"Did you guys get married while I was in there?" I ask. 

"Shut up,Caden." She gives me a look.

"Clove, does he not know?" My dad whispers into her ear.

"What the hell is going on? Why is no one telling me?" I am so confused.

"Just shut up. We'll see you tonight." They walk out.

"You are free to go,Caden. We fixed your finger." The nurse says.

I get up and Olivia leads me out. After we get into her designer chamber, I ask her,"What is going on?"

"Your parents will tell you." She replies and gives me an outfit."Go and change."

I walk into the bathroom. I get changed and when I walk out, I ask," Does it have to do with me?"

"It did like ten years ago."

"Alright, I give up."

"Here is your interview outfit."


I put it on and go backstage.I am walking when someone grabs me." What the hell?" I try to see who it is. All I can see is glimpse of dark brown hair. I refuse to move.

"Caden Alexander Hawks move your ass now. Don't make me bring out a knife." It's my  mom. It can't be anyone else.

"You give away your identity with that."

"I don't care. Let's go."

"Where are we going? I'd really like to eat some food."

"Cato!" My mom can't drag me. 

"What?" My dad walks over to us.

" You know what? I'll do this on my own." She sighs and reaches into her jacket."Don't be a little-"She pauses when some Capitol people walk by. She gives them a fake smile. Once they pass, she pulls out a knife."You better walk."

"Yes, sorry!" I start walking."Where are we going?"

"Will you just be quiet! Do you want to die?"


"Then,shut up!"

We go into a room. President Snow is there.He sits at a table. Across from him is an empty chair which I take."Clove, can you leave please." Snow says to her.

"No." She shakes her head.




"I can do this all day, Snowball."

"Don't disrespect me."

"Don't disrespect me." She copies him and walks out."Remember, I'm the girl with the knives!" She slams the door shut.

"And I'm the man with the army."

"Funny." I roll my eyes.

"Now, please cooperate."


"Do not be like your parents,Caden. It has gotten them no where."

"Well, I'll be more cooperate if you hurry up."

"You see, you have made the competition a bit unfair. People believe it was unfair that a child who's parents are both former victors is not fair to the rest."


"Therefore, most District's are unhappy about that."

"Why would you care? You haven't cared before. Don't you just want a good show, a reminder, and a victor?"

"You see Caden, I do care when it could possible start a turn off."

"Turn off?"

"People refuse to watch the Games. That is happening in some of the districts, because of you."

"So, what did I do wrong?"

"Keep your comments to yourself,Caden. We wouldn't want Lilly or Caylen getting hurt,would we?"

"What did you do to Lilly?" I reach for a knife. I wait to pull it out.

"Don't pull that knife out. If you do, Lilly will be an Avox, or worse. Plus, your parents may be hurt."
"You can't touch them."

"Who says I can't?"

"They'd kill you before you could reach them."

"Don't underestimate my forces,Caden. You are excused."
