Today is the private evaluation from the game makers, not only we have to show what we learned but we have to be rated on our performance on a scale of 1 to 12 to see who we are up against in the arena. All of the Tributes were downstairs underground in the Training Centre all sitting down in order waiting for our fates. I was so nervous u could see my hand shaking like an earthquake, next thing I know I see Glimmer walking towards me with anger on her face.
“Hey Ambrosia, stay away from Cato HE’S MINE!!!” glimmer said with hate in her voice.
“What the hell is wrong with you, I don’t even like him!!!!!!!” I said with anger.
“STOP TRYING GLIMMER, HE DOES NOT LIKE YOU, STOP TRYING TO GO WITH SOMEONE YOU CAN’T GET!!” I replied to her.
The next thing I knew Glimmer threw me on the floor and started throwing punches at me. I was not going to take this lying down so I started pulling at her hair and also started hitting her face with my fists. One peacekeeper pried Glimmer of me. Marvel had to hold her back from attacking me before walking off with Marvel she said to me with poison in her voice
“Watch out ambrosia, you’re first on my kill list!!”
“Come around me again, I WILL SNAP YOUR LITTLE BITCH NECK IN HALF!!!!!!!!” I told her viciously.
I already know that this might be in the interviews; this is juicy stuff the Capitol would want to see. Even in my furious rage, my teammates Katniss and Peeta came to calm me down.
“Don’t listen to her; this is just want she wants. She just wants you to get mad.” Katniss said to me
“Yeah, she is just waiting to see you fail so you could be her easy target in the games, so don’t get mad just stay focused for the game makers.” Peeta said to me.
I just kept looking at Glimmer and the way she was touching Cato. WAIT, WHY AM I CARING ABOUT THE WAY SHE TOUCHES HIM, WHAT GOING ON WITH ME…….. AM I STARTING TO LIKE LIKE HIM!!!!!!!!!!! OMG I NEED TO STOP THIS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1 to 11’s tributes already went up for evaluation, when Cato came out earlier he sent a wink my way, I just rolled my eyes and before that Glimmer sent a death glare my way.
They called Katniss’ name and I wished her good luck so did Peeta after she went in it was him and I.
“Is it true true you like Cato?” , Peeta asked me.
“No, I do not!!” , I replied to him quickly.
“I see the way he looks at you, when you are with another guy, he just turns red. He really likes you.” Peeta says coolly
“Peeta, he is just playing me. He might love me now but when we enter that arena he will turn on me and kill me, and just to prove it to you I will ask him this afternoon.” I reply to him dully.
After our talk we saw Katniss leave, and if looks could kill both Peeta and I would be six feet under. It looks like either she did bad or the game makers totally pissed her off. I was about to hear the full story when they announced my name on the intercom, this was my moment to shine. Both Katniss and Peeta wished me good luck in unison; again they are so cute together.
I walked back into the training centre and saw the game makers up in a room a little viewing box above the training centre.
“Ambrosia Everdeen of District 12, “I said as I announced myself.
After I said that, it’s looked like I got the attention of all the game makers in the room so I made my way over to the daggers. I had four in my hands and one in the ponytail holder of my hair, once the dummies lit up I started throwing and all targets hit my target spots except for the fifth one that hit the dummy’s arm. They did not seem impressed, so they went back to indulging themselves, I was so pissed off at them. Then I went to my favourite weapon dual swords and there were an array of dummies so using my flexibility to my advantage I cut the dummies arms and heads clean off their neck and sockets. I think I did a pretty good job and the Game makers didn’t even notice, they were all looking at a suckling pig brought in by an avox, which was the last straw. I went to the archery station picked up a bow and returned to the knife throwing station and picked up a dagger. I loaded the bow with the dagger and aimed for the apple in the pig’s mouth. I let the dagger fly and that apple was on the wall with a dagger. All the game makers had flabbergasted looks on their faces. All I did was a mock bow and said a snide comment their way,
“I hope you make a careful decision on the mark you give me, and May the Odds be ever in your favour…….or not.” I said to all them and walk out on them without being dismissed.
(Later that afternoon)
Effie was ranting on the behaviour of Katniss and me. She says it was ‘Bad Manners’. The thing that was bad manners was that the game makers were totally ignoring us when we were giving our all to them not trying to look like complete wimps.
“Haymitch finally, as you can see we have a serious situation on our hands.” Effie said to him as he staggered into the living room. Effie was just stood there waiting for a reply, all he did was send two thumbs up our way.
“Good job, sweethearts!!” he said to both while staggering to seat.
“ How did they look when you shot the arrow Katniss and Ambrosia the dagger?” Haymitch asked both of us.
“They looked pretty shocked, when I shot the glass” Katniss replied
“The same thing for me, they looked flabbergasted, when the dagger hit the apple and pinned against the wall.” I said with a smile.
Now it’s time for the results of the evaluation, a tribute is rated on a scale of 1 to 12. Most of the careers got between nine and ten, Rue got a 7 and Thresh a 10. Foxface got a 5. Finally district 12 came, Peeta got a score of 8.
“From district 12, Katniss Everdeen with a score of……. 11” Caesar Flickerman said.
Everyone said it was good. Lastly it was my turn.
“And finally from District 12, Ambrosia with a score of……. 12!” Caesar said and that was it. Everyone started cheering, both Katniss and Peeta hugged me.
“How did Katniss and I get so high?” I asked out of amazement.
“It looks like the gamemakers liked both your guts.’’ Haymitch said.
Cinna proposed a toast to the girl on fire and the Elementis, which were our nicknames in the tribute parade. I decided to go on the roof before dinner, when I got up there I saw a head of blonde hair, one word Cato.
“Hi Cato, what’s up?” I asked innocently.
“How did get higher than me, your deadliest one out there right now.” He asked me curiously.
“I don’t know, it just happened.” I replied truthfully.
“I heard that Glimmer was pissed off with you today because she thought I was being taking away from her.” He replied coolly. I was kind of jealous she had a crush on him, but he really liked his partner Clove more.
“So do you admit you like me?” he asked with his signature smirk on his face.
“No I don’t keep dreaming!” I said with a little smirk.
That did not go well because he started moving forward and I backwards until I was against a wall. He had both his arms at the side of my head so I was trapped, he looked into my eyes then my lips and back to my eyes again. He leaned in until his lips were on mine. The same butterfly feeling was inside of me again. I had to admit he was a really good kisser, he then moved from my lips to neck. Everywhere he kissed I felt like I was on fire. He found my weak spot a minute later and I couldn’t hold in my moan.
“C… Cato, w-why do you do this to Me.’, I said breathlessly
“I just love the way you say my name, plus I like that you’re my innocent little angel going bad.” He purred in my ear which sent goosebumps up my spine. He checked his watch and saw that it was late, so he gave me one last kiss and whispered one more thing in my ear,
“Night my little angel, until tomorrow.” He whispered into my ear which sent shivers down my spine. With that he walked away to the elevator not turning back. I decided to back down for dinner and I was thinking how can a boy like him, could get a girl like me.
