5. District 9-Dahlia
After the Reaping, we are taken to a room. There we see our families for (maybe) the last time but hopefully not. Guards lead me into a room with a velvet couch. I sit down and try to clear my thoughts. My parents and Judah, my little brother, come in first. When I see them, I start to cry. Tears flood out and I choke. I know what kids say about me! Diva, Drama Queen. You know what? I don't care. Tease me all they want. I bet I'll be famous before they are. Then they'll kiss this girl goodbye. Hollywood: here I come!
I look at my parents. My mother has a sad, worried expression on her face. My usually funny dad bears no expression at all. And Judah - cute, sweet little Judah- looks totally fine. Happy, even! Of course, he doesn't know whats going on but just seeing him like that makes me want to throw something. I grab a pot of tea from a nearby table and chuck it against the wall. Tea pours down, beginning to stain, and I feel satisfied. My parents look surprised, scared even, and Judah starts to cry,
"Dahlia!" My mom scolds. "What are you doing - are you crazy?!" Then she starts to cry. She sits down next to me and we put our heads together and cry. Tears pour down our faces and drip off our chins. I look up at my mom. I'm sorry,I think. I'm sorry She nods and looks at me. She says she loves me as if she has read my thoughts
