Mordecai and Rigby tried to help Haymitch to get him cleaned up. They tried not to step in the pool of vomit. "This is so gross". Rigby said disgusted. "Come on let's get Haymitch to the shower". Mordecai said. They helped him to the shower but couldn't decide who's gonna clean him. "So who's gonna clean him up"? Rigby asked. "Rock, Paper, Scissor's for it"? Mordecai asked. "Alright". Rigby said. They did Rock, Paper, Scissor's for cleaning up Haymitch Mordecai won. "Scissor's cuts paper I win". Mordecai said grinning. "Damn"! Rigby said mad knowing he'll have to clean his drunken mentor. "Come on Haymitch". Rigby said annoyed.
Mordecai chuckled some then went back to his room. There was the Avox girl picking up his chariot costume from the parade. "Hello there". Mordecai said. She said nothing to him. "Do you need some help"? Mordecai asked. The Avox girl shook her head no. "Okay then". Mordecai said unsure. After a while Mordecai changed into his sleep where and went to bed. But somehow he just can't fall asleep.
Mordecai kept thinking about the red headed girl. He thought about her in his sleep. Mordecai's having a dream with the Avox Girl. In his dream he's running in an unknown forest. "Okay I think I lost her". Mordecai said out of breath. The Avox Girl came out from behind and stabbed him in the back with a knife. He imagined Pops, Skips, Muscle Man, High Five Ghost and especially Benson looking horrified at the Avox girl killing him. Mordecai woke up sweating like crazy and it felt a shot of adrenaline rush threw him like a bullet to the head.
"DAHH"! He screamed. Mordecai wiped off some of the sweat off his forehead and decided to get some fresh air. Mordecai got out of bed and went to see if Rigby's sleeping. Surprisingly Rigby was nowhere to be found. Mordecai then found a small door on the ceiling that led to the roof. Rigby sat there and looked at the Capital's bright lights. "Hey Rigby". Mordecai said. "Oh hey dude". Rigby mumbled. "What's wrong you look sad"? Mordecai asked. "It's just that when we step in the arena to face all those tributes, I don't wanna die as some kind of blood thirsty monster who likes killing others for the fun of it". Rigby said serious.
"If I'm gonna die, I wanna die as myself you know"? Rigby asked. "I understand what you mean if I die out there in the arena I wanna die as me and not some coldhearted killer". Mordecai said. "But I'll admit this view from here is really beautiful". Rigby said. "Yeah it is it reminds me of Margaret". Mordecai said smiling. "For once I actually miss Benson's yelling and Muscle Mans stupid my mom jokes". Rigby said.
"Yeah me to". Mordecai said. "I think I recognize that girl". Rigby said. "How"? Mordecai asked. "Well when I was 9 I lived in District 12 for a few days until I moved to the City but not the capital". Rigby said. "Oh now I remember you lived in District 12 for a few days when we were kids". Mordecai said. "One day I was in the hob with my mom to sell fish and that girl was walking with the Peace Keepers". Rigby said.
"What happened"? Mordecai asked. "Well you see it was like this". Rigby said then a flash back came. "I was in the forest fishing until I heard someone running". Rigby said. 9-year-old Rigby nearly threw a fit because he just can't get the fish today. "Come on stupid fish"! Little Rigby said frustrated than ever. Then he heard running footsteps. Rigby turned to see who it was. The Avox girl was running for her life from the Peace Keepers.
They finally caught up to her and grabbed her by the arm. The Peace Keepers took her away. She looked at Rigby like she was sad. At the hob with Rigby and his mom the Avox girl appeared again with the Peace Keepers.
End of Flashback
"And that's what happened". Rigby said. "Oh". Mordecai said. "An Avox is basically a traitor"? Mordecai asked. "You're correct". Rigby said. "Well I'm gonna go back to bed good night Rigby". Mordecai said going to his room. "Night Mordecai". Rigby said. The next day it was 8am. "Up, up, up, up today's a big, big, big day". Effie said. Mordecai got up and headed to the living room for breakfast. "Morning dude". Mordecai said. "Morning". Rigby said.
"So how was cleaning Haymitch last night"? Mordecai asked grinning. "I don't wanna talk about it, it's to disgusting". Rigby said grossed out. "Hello boys". Haymitch said wasted. "Hey". They said. "Dude you drink too much". Rigby said. "I can quit whenever I feel like it". Haymitch said. Rigby just glared at him. "Good morning boys". Effie said. "Morning Effie". Mordecai said. "You need all your strength today". Effie said getting her breakfast.
"Why is that"? Rigby asked. "Because today is where you train to fight to the death with the other tribute's". Effie said. "Oh". Rigby said getting his breakfast. Rigby got eggs, bacon, sausages and pancakes and milk to drink. Mordecai got the same thing but he got coffee to drink. After breakfast they were given training uniforms to change into. It's the same uniforms that Katniss and Peeta wore. When it was 11 o'clock Mordecai and Rigby changed into their training uniforms and headed down to the Training Center.
When they got there they saw the other tributes. Mordecai and Rigby waited for what was gonna happen. Then a woman named Johanna Mason came out. "Hello tributes in the next 34 hours each of you will be dead, so you're here to train and fight. I'd like to introduce our new trainers, winners of the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark. Treat them well as you do with me". Johanna said to everyone.
After that Mordecai and Rigby were called by her to meet the star crossed lovers of District 12. "Mordecai, Rigby you will be assigned trainers you'll be paired with Katniss and Peeta". Johanna said. "Mordecai you'll be with Katniss and Rigby you'll be with Peeta". Johanna said. "Respect them and they'll respect you". Johanna said. "So you must be Mordecai". Katniss said. "That's me". Mordecai said.
"Wow you're the girl on fire who pulled those". Rigby said but got cut off. "I know I know who pulled out those berries". Katniss said annoyed. "Oh I'm sorry". Rigby said. "Don't mind her she's cranky". Peeta said jokingly. "Hey"! Katniss said. "Alright let's get training, Mordecai you come with me". Katniss said. Mordecai followed Katniss to an obstacle course station. "Okay this is the obstacle station, to make you know what you're facing in the arena. Can you handle this course, it's pretty hard". Katniss said. "I'll try my best". Mordecai said. Mordecai went up to the course but failed a few times.
"Ah this sucks". Mordecai said mad and frustrated. Katniss smiled and said. "Try again the true hunter comes from in here". Katniss said putting her fingers on his chest. Mordecai's face turned pink and took a deep breath and said. "Alright let's do this thing". Mordecai said serious then did the obstacle course and did it well. "That was great"! Katniss said smiling. "That wasn't so bad". Mordecai said. After 3 hours of training and fighting Mordecai and Rigby did very well then most tributes. Could they win the games?
