Katniss pulled herself up onto another branch. Below her, the careers were laughing, as if they were playing a game of hide-and-seek, not trying to murder her.
"Oh, let me!" said Glimmer. Katniss looked down in time to see Glimmer try to fire an arrow. It missed.
"Here, give me that!" said Cato, grabbing the bow from Glimmer's hands. He fired an arrow, but was no better of a shot than Glimmer.
"Maybe you should try throwing your sword, Cato," said Katniss.
The careers looked at each other, a little sheepishly.
"Oh, you are kidding me," said Clove. "Let me get this straight. You, two killing machines from career districts, who have been trained to be deadly with swords, who can kill anyone who stands in their way, at any time, and who have trained with the best teachers of fighting in Panem, have NEVER BEEN TAUGHT HOW TO FIRE A BOW AND ARROW!"
"Here, let's see you try it," muttered Cato, handing it off to her. Clove's mouth fell open.
"You can't fire a bow either?"
Clove's face went red. Cato and Glimmer both doubled over laughing. Clove's eyes gleamed with rage as she stabbed out with the knife. Cato and Glimmer drew their weapons and fought back. The others leaped into the fray, trying to pull them apart.
In the ensuing chaos, no one noticed Katniss climb down from the tree and run into the woods.
Hope you liked it. (Such a sad deficiency in the Career's education.) Please review!
