2. The Train
On the train there's a whole bunch of food! I go to the room that was meant for me and lay on the bed and start to cry. I miss my family, and I'm gonna die! I think to myself. Well you better enjoy your last days. I wipe the tears from my face and go out to the dining room. "There you are, Rue," Tassy says to me. I try to smile, but i can't. Instead I sit down at the table. Capitol people come and serve us food. There's so much food! I try to eat as much as I can. Tresh eats a lot, well he should he's a big guy. He should eat a lot. "I'm full," I tell whoever is listening and paying attention to me. "Okay," Tassy tells me and smiles, "you can go to your room. Shower, sleep, change, or watch the reaping." I leave and go to my room.
I watch the reaping, the careers look strong as usual. The only district that strikes me is 12. Which is unusual. The girl Katniss, volunteered for her little sister Primrose. The boy Peeta, wasn't striking like Katniss but they seemed to know each other. I could tell by Katniss's look. When they called Primrose Katniss instantly volunteered. But her sister wouldn't let her. Eventually one of the older boys took her away, I'm guessing the boy was a brother or cousin.
I try not to let the Games get to me as I shower, I get dressed and try to sleep. But I can't sleep It's impossible. All I can think about is how I'm going to die in the arena. Will I die when we first start? Or will I get stabbed? Starve? No I can gather, thats what 11 does anyway. Or die of dehydration? They only survival skill I have is gathering, and jumping from tree to tree like a bird. Well jumping isn't really a survival skill. I can run fast I might be hard to catch. I finally get some sleep.
