Today is a really big day for me, even though I did not want to get up from this fluffy capitol bed I had to get ready for training. So with the spring of a frog, I hopped in the shower which surprisingly also talked to you, brush my teeth, do my hair, put my training outfit on and head to the living room for breakfast. By the time I got there Christian, Cenna, Portia, Effie, Haymitch and Peeta were already eating. It was like a banquet with tables of food, I just settled with two chocolate chip muffins a green apple and cup of orange juice. I should keep me full until lunchtime. Peeta was eating like savage. “Peeta slow down, the breakfast is not going anywhere” I said laughing. Peeta replied, “I know, the food just tastes too good for me to stop.” I just laugh at him, he is the only thing that keeps me happy even though we are going to die in less than a week. After two minutes Katniss came downstairs and started eating with us. Then Haymitch said that since that we are going to begin training stay out of the weapons stations, work on hand to hand combat, build fires and learn about the plants.
“Why do we have to do those things, we want to stand a chance not look like road kill, especially with the career pack and that Cato guy. I feel like that dude is bionic!” I said with emphasis on the word bionic.
“Yeah, I totally agree.” Katniss and Peeta said in unison.
I think to myself that Katniss and Peeta are a cute couple, look how they talk together maybe they finish each other sentences.
All four of us headed to the elevator, down to the training centre below the tribute tower, I saw some of the tributes already there, the career pack ware already together in their little group. Only district 1 and 2’s tributes make that pack so there are only four people. District 11’s tributes consisted of a tall dark male boy and a little twelve year old girl with black curly hair, later I learned their names were Thresh and Rue.
The little career pack consisted of Glimmer and Marvel of District 1 and Clove of district 2, I already met Cato and his lame attempts to flirt with me then an athletic woman named Atala came and addressed us all
“In two weeks, 23 of you will be dead. One of you might be alive but that depends on what you learn the next 4 days. First thing no fighting with the other tributes you’ll have plenty of time of that in the arena, the first 3 days will be on individual training and the 4th day will be private training. Do not neglect the survival skills most of u might want to pick up a knife, 24% of you would die of infection, 10% from dehydration. Exposure can kill as easily as a knife."
After that we all head off in various directions doing whatever we want. The Careers as usual head for all things weapons. I went to the survival areas and learn to make a few traps for small animals, after I went to the plants quiz to see what plants I can eat and I had to stay away from the weapons area but those dual-swords are calling my name I can’t resist so I sneaked over by the weapons station and there was a trainer so I asked him to spar with me. I was really in control with those duel swords, I was so focused that almost the entire centre was watching me, especially the career pack.
“I’m not a Television people!!” , I said loudly to everyone. Everyone dispersed as soon as I said that
I went to the climbing station to work on my skills when I heard someone calling me
“Hey 12!” a mysterious voice said.
I turned around and saw the career pack coming towards me.
“Hello, what I do for you this fine day,” I said dully.
“We want you to join the career pack, so are you in?” Glimmer said with hope in her eyes.
“Let me think about it” I said while putting one hand under my chin.
“NO!!!!!!!!!!!” I said to all of them loud for the entire centre to hear. Then I turned my foot and walked back to what I was doing before I was interrupted.
“You don’t know what you’re missing!” Marvel said to me.
“I know I’m making the right decision, first off you would use me to kill off most of the tributes and when it comes down to a few of us, you’ll kill me off. I’m not taking that chance.” Then I walked off not turning back.
“We have to get Ambrosia on our team!” Marvel said to me.
“Yeah, I totally agree, she has skills which we need.” Glimmer said. Clove shaking her head in agreement.
I thought to myself a little more, Ambrosia was right. They would try to kill her off when the game is coming to an end. I really had to try to protect my little rose from any danger. I might have started to develop feelings for her as soon as I stepped into the Capitol. I hope she could see it to before we kill each other. There is still something that I think she is hiding and I going to find out once and for all.
Back to my POV
Today was a very productive day of training. I was really hungry so as we were told to go, I sped up to the elevator but before I could get there an arm grabbed me out of nowhere and took me to a secluded side of the training centre.
“Hey princess, were you thinking of me today?’’ the voice of Cato said to me.
“One don’t call me princess and two I have better things to do than dream about you.” I replied walking off
“So you dream about me, huh.” He said with a smug look on his face.
“Don’t be so vain, I could never like you.” I said with a straight face and walked off. The next thing I knew, Cato ran up behind me turned my body around and kissed me. I could not believe the first few seconds and I started to kiss back. My mind said no but my heart said yes in kissing him. He wanted a little more so he licked my bottom lip, but being the playful girl I am didn’t let him in. He grabbed my behind which caused a moan to escape, and he took that opportunity to explore, in the end he one.
Kissing him felt like eating the forbidden fruit. He was so good yet so bad at the same time. I know this boy named Cato Hadley is going to be the death of me.
“Night baby girl, sweet dreams,” Cato whispered in my ear oh so sweetly, with those words said he walked away never looking back.
I THINK I HAVE JUST FALLEN IN LOVE WITH CATO HADLEY. HARD!!!!!
