My Everything

What if Katniss didnt volunteer, but instead Rory did?


3. Chapter 3

“What?” I ask, irritated by the look on her face.

“Why did you do that Rory?” she asks me.

“For Prim. And you. And your mom.

“I was going to volunteer,” she says softly to me. By this, I am angered.

“YOU ARE A GIRL KATNISS! I COULDN’T LET YOU DO THAT!” I shout at her, AND I’M NOT A BABY! SO DON’T TALK TO ME LIKE THAT! Before she can reply, I say,” I’m sorry. Can you talk to me about bow and arrows?” For the next two minutes, we talk about those. Then we hear those words again,

“Time’s up!” We shake hands and she wishes me good luck. Next is Gale.

“Why did-“but, I cut him off midsentence.

“Hush Gale. That is in the past. Now, if you want to help me, then just teach me about snares.”

“Times up!” I hear for the third time. I wish he would stop it. We deserve more time to say goodbye to our family! Our own flesh and blood!

“See you later,” is all I can think to say to him.

He looks at me funny and just replies, “Good luck. I know you can win this.”

“Yeah, I know. Everyone keeps saying that,” I reply. I at least want to sound happy and confident if this is the last time I ever hear his voice. 


It was short, I know! But next one will be longer, I promise! It will be longer than 500 words!
