stay alive

Hi my name is Haden Everdeen and I'm going to tell you some things so start taking notes. I was the victor of the 64th hunger games when I was 15. I was the girl of ice. Now I'm 25 and have already mentored for Katniss and Peeta with Haymich and all that jazz. But the twist in the third quarter also involves that 3 victors would be reaped and would fight to the death once again. But what really scares me most is that Katniss doesn't want to be allies with me.

A/N: this will most likely be a short chapter… sorry. 


Katniss's POV

"To remind you that even the strongest of the strong cannot overpower the Capitol, This years tributes shall be reaped from the existing pool of victors!" 


 That's all I had to hear to take off out of my house. In the background I heard my mother scream but I keep running. I ran and I ran until I reached one of the only places that can calm me. The woods. I jogged over to the first tree that I could find and I held onto it for dear life. The smell of the pine needles around me comforted me. That smell you could say, calmed me down.

Even the thought of stepping into another arena sickens me. My life is really important to me. I really love my life. But being in the arena killing people who feel the exact same way, is almost like holding onto something so important (my life),that it doesn't even belong to you.

Peeta's POV

"To remind you that even the strongest of the strong cannot overpower the Capitol, This years tributes shall be reaped from the existing pool of victors!" 

Snow's old, raspy voice echoed throughout my ears. I just stood there for just about five minutes, with tears threatening to spill. This message left my mouth wide open. I had to protect Katniss, but I knew to do that, I had to go into the arena. Then, I sped off to Haymich's mess of a house.

Haymich's POV 

"To remind you that even the strongest of the strong cannot overpower the Capitol, This years tributes shall be reaped from the existing pool of victors!" 


That's all I heard before I completely lost my mind and I threw my white liquor bottle at the screen projection on my wall. The spirit made my wall wet along with the glass shards that rested on anything that was under the screen. 

I walked over to that wall and started kicking and punching it just as I heard President Snow's voice repeat what is said every year, 

​"And may the odds be ever in your favor…." 

Well since this years games are going to be as stupid as usual, my odds will be roughly the same.


Haden's POV 

I'm going to volunteer...

 The thought of experiencing that bloodbath once again was too brutal to even think about. I shuddered. Then I whispered,

​"Rowan…" I promised him that I wouldn't let the capital control me. That I wouldn't let them change me. I promised that I wouldn't allow such things to happen. 

And I broke his promise. I go on my knees lied my head between them. I wrapped my arms around the front of my still wounded body. Like a child.
I'm actually very surprised that I'm not crying. I guess you could say that I have forgotten how cry ever since I had left the arena. 

I hear a knock at my front door.  "come in…" I whisper. Quiet footsteps take away the silence that I have been engulfed in since my TV turned off. I feel  small hand on my shoulder. 

"Look" I lift my head up toward the voice. Prim. She was pointing at my box-like television screen. Lights on the screen flicker on and off in various colors. Then, the screen turns back on. I close my eyes not wanting to know what occupies the screen. Prim outs her small hand on top of mine for reassurance. With my eyes still closed, I hear a old, scratchy, voice, "And district 12 is in for a treat…" I finally look up from my position.

President Snow is still standing at his podium. "This district will be offering up 3 tributes, good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!"

I know what Snow is trying to do. He's trying to kill me and Katniss. But that's not going to happen. Because if Katniss is going in she will come out.
