The Odds Are Not In My Favor!

A girl from the Capitol volunteered to replace a tribute in the Hunger Games. Yes, a girl from the Capitol. Is it even possible? What will happen? Will she survive the Hunger Games?


1. Meeting Peeta.

 It have never been so quite here in The Capitol. It’s too quite that it scares me. It's 2:47 am, it surprise me that it’s too quite here. Usually people here don’t sleep this early but it looks like I'm the only one that is walking on the street at this time. I couldn’t sleep, I've been having nightmare for a few nights. I have a feeling that something really weird and wrong going to happen. I can’t quite figure out what.  As I was walking, I saw a guy. He had blonde hair but I couldn’t see his face because he was facing the lake in front of us. I coughed awkwardly.

“Who’s that?” he snapped as he was turning around. As soon as he saw me he said “Who are you? What are you doing here so late?”

“I could ask you the same thing.” I said crossing my arms and raising my eyebrows. I can tell he wasn’t from The Capitol. He wasn't dressed up like men here. He was just wearing a sweater and some lose jeans. “Are you one of the tributes?”

“Yeah, how did you know?” he asked curiously.

“The way you dress up. It’s different” I simply said.

“Yeah, well, you don’t dress up like women here. Are also a tribute?”

“No, I am from here.”

“Then why…” I didn’t give him the chance to finish the question.

“Because I don’t like the style, I think it’s hideous.” I said, rolling my eyes.

“Well that’s new.” He said and I let a soft giggle. “I’m Peeta Mellark. From District 12.”

“I’m …” wait did he say 12? “You’re from 12?”

“Yeah, why?”

“So, you are the victor that won because of the Love thing?”

“What do you mean the “Love Thing”?”

“I didn’t hear much about it. And I don’t watch the hunger games.”

“Oh... So why are up so late?”

“I couldn’t sleep, I had a nightmare and I don't even remember what it was about.”

“Me too. That’s weird.”

“So who’s the lucky girl?”

“Hah. Her name is Katniss.”

“That’s a beautiful name.”

“Yes. Yes, it is.” He smiled then I smile. He must really like her but I could see disappointment in his eyes. Why is he disappointed? I doubt it that it’s about the Game. I know it’s about something else. "Uhm, so I think I'll be heading to my Hotel room then."

"Yeah, me too." I replied.

"Oh... Want me to walk you home?"

"Uhm... Sure." why not right?
