3. reaping day part two

"And the girls tribute is..." she unfolds the paper "...Layla Mallark!" Oh no. Why does god want me to die? Makayla pipes up " I volunteer as tribute!" The peacekeeper asks who said that they all point at me. There's nothing else I can do but slowly raise my hand. The peackeeper grabs me tightly and walks me to stage. Jose says "Hey, aren't you Katn"And the girls tribute is..." she unfolds the paper "...Layla Mallark!" Oh no. Why does god want me to die? Makayla pipes up " I volunteer as tribute!" The peacekeeper asks who said that they all point at me. There's nothing else I can do but slowly raise my hand. The peace keeper grabs me tightly and walks me to stage. Jose says "Hey, aren't you Katniss and Peeta mallarks daughter?" I choke out a whiny "Yes"

"Well, your just like your mother, willing to volunteer your life for your sister!" This comment set me off inside. No I'm not. And they are the reason I'm about to die. Maybe if Layla died they would be too depressed to ruin my life. My whole body is shaking. The only thing I can think about is the games. I just now realize that my own mother is going to be my mentor. And I have the great Katniss Everdeen blood. I scout though the crowd of parents to attempt to find my mom. I can't spot her. I wish I could look into her eyes for comfort. But I don't see her. I look at my sisters. They are all trying to hold in laughter. Is this all one big joke to them? I come back to reality so I shake hands with chance, even though we've met several times before. I can see the fear in his eyes. I give a reassuring face.

"Alright you two, right this way." Six peacekeepers walk on stage, three next to chance and three next to me they sit me down in a room on a really nice red seat. Most likely from the capital. Living in district 12 means not very many nice things. My mom walks into the room.

"Mom!"

"Jordan!"

"Mom, I can't do this, I'll die!"

"No you won't. I managed to survive not one, but two hunger games, you need to be more confident, I've taught you a lot, And I can teach you more, me and dad are your mentors. You will win."

"Mom"

"What?"

"I need to tell you something"

"Yes?"

"I didn't volunteer for Layla, Makayla said I volunteer then they blamed it on me."

"What?!"

A peacekeeper walked in and escorted Mom out of the room. All four sisters walked in afterwords

"Well, well, well, looks like mom and dads favorite is about to go bye- bye! " Ayla says

"Well, did you forget Mom and dad are my mentor? I actually might survive this and guess who's getting NONE of my fortune" I say, even though I know I have no shot at winning. All of a sudden. Makayla lunges her fist into my face. My nose begins to bleed. I jump out of my chair, infuriated, I lift my foot off the floor directly into Makayla's left cheek. A tooth falls to the floor. Layla tries to swing her fist to my cheek. I duck, just in time, too. And lift my right foot right in her skinny stomach. She pukes on the spot.

"Who's next?" I say.

"what have you done to them!" Says Kayla. Nearing tears.

" would you like the same done to you?" I ask

"Yeah, like you could kick my a-" I punch her in the gut mid-sentence. The peacekeepers walk in

" your lucky, Ayla" I say. The door slams shut. I cannot believe I just did that. I just got a rush of adrenaline and WHAM! I guess that's a good thing though. Dad walks in.

"Dad!"

"Jordan!" I run to his arms

"Hey!"

" I almost didn't make it in time. We only have 60 seconds"

"Okay, dad, I need to tell you something"

"Okay"

"I didn't volunteer for Layla, Makayla said it and blamed me for it" I say, my voice is trembling. My dad is all about family. And he's gonna get really mad at the quads, and it's my fault he's mad. And the quads will get mad at me. But I have to tell him. The peacekeepers walk in and grab dad and drags him out. He managed to squeeze out one "I love you" before he disappeared. I start crying. A million different thoughts are racing around my mind. What will the arena environment be like this year? An icy wasteland? Mountains? Woods? Desert? You never know. I don't know what's going to happen. What if I don't make allies? What if I die right away? What if I die a slow, painful, death? What if I starve? What if I win?

A peacekeeper walks in and aggressively grabs me by the shoulder and starts to drag me out the door.
