They were all worried. Seriously who wouldn't be? 12 different districts, 24 different people. And some of those people were vampires or werewolves! I mean how is that fair, you have them and then you have humans. They can rip hearts out; there is no rule against that. None of us know each other, the basic rules are: find them, kill them, win. You just need to be the last one standing. Time for the reaping, great. Please don't be chosen, they all silently asked themselves.
They all watched the reapings on television, four volunteers, and two in District 12. They were all wondering who was human, a vampire, or a werewolf.
"Hello, hello," said the famous Effie Trinket. She went around to all the districts now, it got too confusing before. "I would love to chit chat but this really needs to get done now. I'm going to all the districts today!" Effie said with a twinkly laugh. "As usual, ladies first." Effie paused and dipped her pale hand into the bucket. Quickly, she pulled a name out. In a clear voice she read the name, "Rosalie Hale." A petit girl with long blonde hair walked out from the crowd. "Any volunteers?" Effie asked. She got no answer. A peacekeeper lead the girl up the steps and she waited for her alternate tribute. "Boys turn!" Effie said excitedly. She reached into the other buckey and pulled out a name. "Peeta Mellark." A stocky boy walked out through the crowd. Slowly, as if he was waiting for a volunteer he made his way up to the stage. "Well shake hands," Effie said happily. Rosalie and Peeta shook hands. When Peeta grabbed Rosalie's hand he went stiff. He had found out she wasn't human, she was a vampire.
Effie made her way to District Two by 9:00. "If you didn't know I'm seeing all the districts today," Effie said to the crowd. Nobody said anything. They all knew, they had been told 1000 times. "Ladies first!" Effie said with a wink to District Two's mayor. He blushed. Effie reached into the bucket and pulled out a piece of paper with the name Victoria Sutherland on it. She read it aloud. A tall red head walked out from the crowd. Then she pulled the boys name. It said Gale Hawthorne. She also read that name aloud. A muscular boy with dark brown hair and olive skin joined the girl on stage. The tributes from District Two shook hands and Gale shivered. He realized that his partner was a vampire.
Effie stepped out onto the stage, her orange hair glowing along with the pink tint of her skin. "Ladies first," she said cheerfully. Her tiny hand dipped into the bucket and the name she read aloud was Rue. A tiny girl with brown skin and curly brown hair stepped onto the walkway. Little Rue who was probably only 12 made her way up to the stage. "Boy's turn!" Effie said for the third time that day. She read the name Edward Masen. Edward walked onto the stage and stood beside Rue. "What a height difference," Effie said with a bouncy laugh, "Why don't you shake hands?" Edward nodded and reached for Rue's hand. When he touched her Rue looked horrified. "You're a vampire," Rue whispered. Edward didn't say anything. He only smiled and nodded his head.
"Thank you for the fish again," Effie said making her way onto the stage. "As you all should know, I go around to all the districts now," Effie said happily. "We all do know," a man shouted from the crowd. "Well you don't need to be rude about it, I was just reminding you," Effie said with a bit of disgust to the old man. "Anyways, ladies first!" The tribute for the females was a girl about 16 with bright copper hair. Her name was Foxface. The male tribute was a small boy with the name of Markson Valley. Just as Markson was about to walk onto the stage a man shouted from the crowd. "I volunteer, I volunteer!" he shouted. "Wow! Our first volunteer," Effie said, "What is your name?" The man said, "Carlisle, Carlisle Cullen." "Well then Carlisle," Effie said pronouncing every syllable in the mans name, "You happed to be the first volunteer of the day. Let's give him a round of applause." There was no answer. Little Markson was the only person you could hear, his tears rolling down his cheeks as he cried. Carlisle, being quite blunt stuck out his hand for Foxface to shake it. Gently she grabbed his hand and it was freezing. "This is the reason you volunteered, you're not human, you're a vampire!"
District Five was now filled with strong people, for many years if Districts One or Two didn't win Five would. "Our female representative is Clove." A strong girl with tar black hair stepped out from the crowd. She walked up to the stage with the assistance of Peacekeepers. "Now our male representative is Emmett McCarty." A powerful man emerged from the crowd. He swatted off the Peacekeepers like they were bugs. "Wow, mighty handsome you are!" Effie said with a laugh. Clove and Emmett stood beside each other and got a roar of applause from the crowd. They both smiled with delight. Emmett bent down and whispered into Clove's ear "I'm a vampire." She looked frightened for a minute, but then Emmett bent down again. This time he said, "You aren't on my kill list, I like you." Clove looked satisfied and shook Emmett's hand for everybody to see. She wasn't scared of him anymore.
Effie sulked walking onto the stage. "I'm tired," was all she said. "Aha, let's spice it up! Boys first!" There was a murmur from the audience. A peacekeeper spoke up and said, "There is no rule denying it." Effie dipped her pink hand into the bowl and swished it around. "Cato!" she exclaimed. A tall, handsome man walked onto the stage. He smiled. "Renesmee Cullen," Effie read aloud. A tiny girl, only 12, walked out from the crowd. She was extremely shy. She came onto the stage with tiny steps, making almost no sound. "Well shake hands!" Effie said happily. Cato stuck out his hand and had to wait for the tiny girl to shake it. "I'm waiting," he whispered. Reluctantly, Renesmee decided to shake Cato's huge hand. "Don't judge me," she whispered to him. When their hands touched he realized why little Renesmee asked not to be judged. Her hand was freezing, she was a vampire.
Effie arrived at District Seven. Well back to my original way, ladies first. "Ladies first!" Effie cried. She pulled a name out of the basket. "Primrose Evergreen," she read aloud. A small blond girl, probably 13 stepped out into the walkway. She walked to the stage, accepting help from a kind peacekeeper. "Joining you is Seth Clearwater," Effie also read aloud. A boy about 15 joined Primrose on the stage. They both looked frightened, "Prim, dear, I love you!" somebody said, probably Primrose's mother. Then Seth's sister spoke, "I'll miss you Seth, goodbye." Seth started to tear up and both he and Primrose were taken inside. They sat on opposite sides of a couch but gradually made their way to the center to hug. When Prim touched his skin she became shocked, "You're not human, you're a werewolf." She got up and ran out of the room. Seth just sat there, and a tear trickled down his face.
"Hello dear District Eight!" Effie said cheerfully. She had taken a nap on the ride and wasn't tired anymore. District Eight was the home of the petites, everyone was tiny. They didn't need strength to make peacekeeper uniforms. Effie pulled out a name and read it aloud, "Esme Platt." A girl gave Esme a hug before she went to the stage. Effie read another name, "Marvel." This time a thin boy got a hug from a friend. Esme and Marvel stood beside each other on the stage. They were both thin, but Marvel was tall while Esme was tiny. Esme reached up and touched Marvel's shoulder. He bent down, "I don't want to scare you but I'm," Esme took a deep breath in and continued, "A vampire." Marvel looked extremely scared, he almost fainted. Effie put a glass of water to his lips and she and Marvel, along with Esme went into the building.
"Hello!" Effie said to the crowd. "I spiced it up earlier and I will again, I'll pick the male and female tribute at the same time!" Effie laughed. Somebody shouted, "That's illegal! You can't do that!" "Well, it doesn't say no in the rule book so I can," Effie said with a snap. "Fine," the person said. Effie pushed the male and female tribute baskets closer together and pulled out names at the same time. "Our female tribute is Isabella Swan, and our male tribute is Thresh." Thresh, a big strong guy walked up to the stage. Isabella, on the walkway stumbled; a peacekeeper grabbed her and helped her up. She was fine until she tripped again on the first step. Another peacekeeper helper her up and walked her to where Effie and Thresh were standing. Effie laughed but the crowd didn't, "Don't laugh," Thresh said sternly, "I know her, she's a vampire."
Effie was still mad at herself for the scene at District Nine when she arrived at District Ten. It was three o'clock. After this two more Effie thought. She was quite tired; you can only fix make-up so many times. Effie stepped onto the stage and got a roar of applause from the audience. It brightened her mood. "I did this at District Six, boys first," Effie said loudly. The crowd looked excited. "Jasper Whitlock," Effie read aloud from the small sheet of paper. A copper headed boy walked out from the crowd and stood on the stage next to Effie. Effie picked the female tribute name and read it out, "Katniss Everdeen." A tall girl with dark brown wavy hair walked out from the crowd. She stood on the stage beside Jasper and didn't look scared when they shook hands. That's a first; somebody always looks scared Effie thought. Jasper and Katniss followed Effie inside, "I know you're a vampire," Katniss said very bluntly. "That's good I didn't know how to put it if I had to tell you," Jasper replied. Katniss smiled and said, "Ok."
"I'm tired of doing things differently," Effie said, "Ladies first!" She picked the name Mary Alice Brandon and a 16 year old walked on the stage. She reminds me of a fairy Effie thought. "Boys turn," Effie said dipping her thin hand into the bucket; she pulled out the name Lucas Turboot. All that was heard was a cry by little Lucas. I can't stand it Finnick thought. "I'll go, I volunteer for the kid," he said. "Wow! 2nd volunteer today!" Effie said." What's your name? she asked. "Finnick Odair," he answered. "Well have fun with Mary Alice," Effie said. "She is way too cheerful," Finnick whispered to Mary Alice. Mary Alice laughed and said, "I know but isn't it so funny?" "Yeah it is," Finnick replied, "Do people call you Mary Alice or do you have a nickname?" "Alice," she said. "The vampire," Finnick replied.
District Twelve was filled with strong competitors. Almost everyone helped out in the mines, both men and women. Effie just wanted it to be over, she did it simply. "Your female representative is Ruby Mason. Oh no, Johanna thought. "I volunteer!" she said. "Wow!" Effie said, "What's your name?" "Johanna Mason that was my sister." "You are so sweet," Effie said, "Boys turn." Effie pulled out the piece of paper and started to read it aloud, "Oh no," Effie whispered. "Gray Mason," Effie said louder. Johanna went stiff. Jacob saw the look of pain in Johanna's face, he was tough so he said, "I volunteer," Johanna's face lifted as Jacob stood on the stage beside her. "My name is Jacob Black," he said, "And so you all know I volunteered because a) I felt sorry for the kid and b) I'm a werewolf." And then Jacob just walked away.
