"Are you sure you want to go with Riam and Stark?" Asks Biram for what feels like the thousandths time.
"Yes!! Now go, it's nearly our go." Jax groans.
"OK. OK. Good luck!"
Biram walks out. Today we get scored on our tactics and we have to do the test like last year. I take a deep breath as Jax walks in the room to impress the Gamemakers.
I hear lots of noises and then Jax runs outside and wishes me luck. Cautiously, I stand up and walk in the room. This year I want to do something different. The Gamemakers watch me and I walk over to the fire making station, where I helped Riam and Stark.
I throw in the sticks and light it, making a fire. I burrow it with my hand, making it darker and no smoke comes out from the top. The Gamemakers seem impressed. Almost. So, I jog over to the arrow station and shoot an arrow straight in the middle of each target, put the arrow back and walk out.
"Hey Jax. What did you do?" I ask as Jax and I walk back to the elevator to see the scores.
"I climbed and did a little bit of using bow and arrows... I failed and hit the outside..." Jax mutters.
"Oh. You would've done well. I did some shooting and I built a fire and... Yeah," I reply.
"Nice. C'mon let's see our scores!"
We open the elevator door and sit down on the sofa with Kiar, Biram, Destiny, Neddie and Stafftip.
"Ready? You missed the first two districts," Sighs Destiny and we reply with a nod. Jax comes on and we all laugh and clap, because she got an eight!
"Well done!" I laugh.
Next is me and I get lower than last year, but the same as Jax. An eight as well.
"Oh..." I sink back into the sofa.
"Well done, both of you!" Neddie chirps.
"Thank you." Jax smiles.
"Cyanna, I have something for you. For tonight," Kiar says and extends his hand for me. I take it and we walk to our wardrobe.
"What is it?" I ask, eagerly.
"This, put it on. We don't have long,"
I slip a dress over my head after I stripped off. It's a long blue dress, with pearls around the waist of it.
"Wow!" I laugh as Kiar taps the pearl belt on the dress and it looks like water flowing. District 4. I wear a pair of black flats and tonight, just tonight, we are leaving my hair out just with a simple hair clip holding it.
"Cyanna, when you go to Caesar near the end, tap the belt," Kiar orders and I nod.
"Sorry! Sorry I'm late!" Calls Destiny running in the room and Jax follows holding the brims of her dress. She wears a puffy purple dress, with dazzling wires on it and they look like their zapping.
"It's ok," I say calmly, not taking my eyes off Jax's dress. It's gorgeous, like mine.
"Ready!? We have to go now! Caesar's already doing District 2!"
I gasp and we run to where we're supposed to go. We line up, pushing in front of District 4. I take a huge breath as Jax goes in the room.
