8. Chapter 8

When I wake up, there is an outfit on the end of my bed. It is a simple outfit. Black khakis with a black shirt.I put it on.When I walk out,Harley greets me.

"Hurry up and eat. You must leave soon." He says. I sit down and eat as much as I can.

After I finish, Harley hugs me."Caden,I believe in you!"

"Thanks,Harley." I refuse to hug back.

"Good luck."


"Caden,come here." My mom pulls me aside.She hugs me."Caden,listen to me. I know Cato and I haven't been the best parents in the world,but you know we love you,right?"

"Of course I do.And you guys are the best parents."

"Caden, you can do this."

"I know."

"I'm serious. I'm going to do everything in my power to get you out of that arena a victor. I love you,Caden."

"Love you too."

As she pulled away from the hug, Veronica got on the elevator. She was accompanied by my mom.

"Let's go,Caden." My dad gets onto the second elevator and I follow.We start going down."Remember, run as fast as you can. Get any weapon you can get your hands on. You can use them all. Worry about supplies later. You are a Career."

"I know,Dad."

When we get there,the door opens. We step out. I look at a hovercraft."Caden, I know I haven't showed you much affection in your life,but I need you to know how proud I am of you.You could die thirty seconds into it and I'd still never stop telling people how talented you are. Win or loose, I am still the proudest dad ever. I also want to apologize to you. I'm one of the reasons you have to go through this."

"It's the Capitol's fault, not yours." I say looking down.

"Well, yeah because of what I did fifteen years ago. Caden, I know I will see you in three weeks. You are the best one in these Games. I'll do everything in my power to get you out."

"Dad, you know you are the best dad ever right?"

"That's a lie."

"No,it's not.You guys are the reason I am going to win. You taught me everything I know." My dad and I never really hugged,but I could never see them again. I was almost as tall as him so when we hugged, we were face to face.

"Good luck,Caden."

"Thanks." I begin to walk toward the hovercraft. I stopped and turned back to him."If I don't win, tell Lilly I love her."

He nodded in agreement and I walked to the hovercraft. When I got inside, I sat down in an empty chair. A female Peacekeeper came by and took my hand.She put something against it. A light traveled through my arm. I take it that it is my tracker.

Aqua sits next to me."Hi. You ready?"

"Hell yeah." I reply with a smile.

After about an hour,we landed. I was escorted into a small room where Olivia was waiting."Hi,Caden. How is my victor?" She hugs me.


"Here is your jacket. I wish you the best of luck." She pulls away and puts my jacket on.

I walk into the tub. She smiles as the platform raises.

When the platform stop rising, the sunlight blinds me. I look around. Aqua is right next to me. She smiles at me. Sparkle is on the other side. I see Granite and Veronica. The clock starts ticking.

Look at those weapons. Waiting for me to grab them and kill someone. This is it. Adrenaline fills my body. Thirty seconds. Thirty seconds tell I can kill half of these pathetic weaklings.
