Sorry for not uploading ANYTHING for a couple of months, I was just on YouTube ALOT. Anyway, I still need more costume ideas for the parade and some remind me, which came first, the training center, or the parade. This chapter is the reaping for all the cabins. Thanks!
Zeus stared at the iris message, Gaea was on the other end trying to make a deal with him. The other Olympians watched in horror.
"Let's make a deal shall we?" Gaea's voice echoed around the chamber. "I will call off the war if all the Olympians send one daughter and one son between the ages of 12 an 18 to compete in the Hunger Games. A fight to the death on live television. The winner will be able to resurrect one of his or her friends or be immortal. The Hunger Games will be annual. If you decide not to do the Hunger Games one year, I will send my army the Camp Half-blood so they can kill every single demigod alive."
The Olympians exchanged glances. A fight to the death? Everyone looked at Zeus. It was his decision.
"Agreed," he said. Everyone stared at him. Gaea looked amused.
"The deal is done. You guys decide how to find out who will participate." And with that note, Gaea ended the iris message.
The campers gathered around, all unaware of the Hunger Games. Murmurs arose from the crowd.
"Silence!" I yelled. "We have made a deal with Gaea." I said, gesturing towards the other Olympians. "Gaea said she would withhold her army if we had the Hunger Games." Jake, a son of Athena hand rose. I nodded towards him.
"What's the Hunger Games?" he asked. I looked away when he asked that.
"The Hunger Games is a fight to the death on live television. We agreed to send one of our sons and daughters between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate. There can only be one winner of the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games will become an annual event. The winner will be able to resurrect one of their friends or be immortal." I said.
Everyone started complaining and I couldn't blame them.
"Silence!" I yelled. "We are here to reap the names. Everyone 11 and under go on the right and everyone else to the left." So many people were 12 and older. I imagined that group getting smaller and smaller as the years passed.
"I will reap my cabin now." I said. I walked up to the podium and drew a slip for the girls.
"Sea Jackson," I said, my voice cracking. Sea walked up to the stage and stood to my left. I drew another slip for the boys.
"William Hunter," I said. William walked up to the stage and stood on my right. Sea and William shook hands then I grabbed both of their arms and flashed them the Olympus.
It was my turn to reap. I walked up to the podium and drew a slip for the girls.
"Alyssa Stone," I said. Alyssa was only 12... She slowly started to make her way to the stage.
"I volunteer!" Pandora yelled (Katniss much?). Pandora... volunteer? Alyssa stared at her older sister in shock. Pandora said something to Alyssa and came up on stage and stood on my right. I drew a slip for the boys.
"Matthew Hunter," I said. He came up on stage and stood on my left. He shook hands with Pandora, then I flashed us to Olympus.
If Zeus hadn't agreed to that stupid deal we wouldn't be doing this right now. I mean, come on we can take on Gaea any day. I put my thoughts aside and stepped up to the podium. I drew a slip for the girls.
"Mela Ebony Kulesa," I said. She came up on stage looking fearless, but I knew she was nervous. I drew another slip for the boys.
"Perseus Nico Kulesa," great, they're twins. I wonder if they'll make an alliance. He came up on stage, shook hands with Mela and then I flashed us to Olympus.
Ugh, my turn. I got up to the podium and took the first slip I touched.
"Charlie McDonnell," I said. She came up and stood on my left. Next, the boys.
"Chris Howard," I said. Good I'm done. Chris came up, shook hands with Charlie, then I flashed us to Olympus.
I took a deep breath and went up to the podium. Ladies first.
"Sonny Marx," I said. I could see her sweating when she came up. Almost done Apollo, almost done.
"Chase Moore," I said. He came up, shook hands with Sonny Marx, then I flashed us to Olympus.
Hmm? Oh! Its my turn. I went up to the podium and drew a slip.
"Sarah Greene," I said. Poor Sarah! She was only 13! She walked up on stage trying to look confident.
"I volunteer!" Belle said. Another volunteer? Belle looked sadly at her younger sister and came up on stage. I drew a slip for the boys.
"Aspen Westbrook," I said. He came up and shook his sister's hand, then I flashed us to Olympus.
I was about to reap 2 of my hunters. I walked up to the podium and drew a slip.
"Alexandria Didario," I said. She walked up looking confident. I drew another slip.
"Joanna Thorn," I said. Joanna came up and shook hands with Alexandria. Then, I flashed us to Olympus.
Time to reap 2 of my kids to enter the first ever Hunger Games. I drew a slip and read it carefully.
"April Lanchester," I said, my voice cracked at the name. She came up looking ready to win. I carefully drew another silp for the boys.
"Dylan Bolton," The 16 year old walked up and just before he got up on stage, there had to be another volunteer.
"I volunteer!" Jake said. Jake was older than Dylan by 1 year. Why he volunteered is a mystery to me. Jake walked up on stage, shook hands with April, then I flashed us to Olympus.
I wonder who will be reaped. Hopefully, someone who has been eating their cereal! I walked up to the podium and drew a slip.
"Cadence Elizabeth Thyme," I said. I believe she has been eating a good amount of cereal. She walked up on stage and stood on my left. I drew another slip with cereal on my mind.
"Harris Edmunds," I said. My voice didn't crack like Athena's, but my voice was sadder than hers. Harris walked up on stage and shook hands with Candence. Then, I flashed us to Olympus.
I'd rather give up wine forever than watch 2 of my children fight to the death. I walked up to the podium and drew a slip.
"Preia Salieri," I said. She slowly walked towards the stage. Hurry up already! I thought. When she finally got on stage, I drew a slip for the boys.
"Pétrus Conti," I said. Thank goddness he wasn't as slow as Preia. He got up on stage, shook hands with Preia, then I flashed us to Olympus.
It was my turn to reap. I went up to the podium and drew a slip.
"Emma Wolf," I said. She's strong, she can win. Emma got up on stage and stood on my left. I drew another silp for the boys.
"Henry Remat," I said. He's also strong, he can win if Emma dies... Henry walked up on stage and shook hands with Emma. Then I flashed us to Olympus.
It was my turn. I don't know why I was last, but whatever. I drew a silp and hopefully whoever this is can win.
"Melody Louisiana Zander," I said. She can win. Right? She walked up on stage and stood on my left. I drew a silp for the boys. The final tribute for the Hunger Games is..
"Taylor Allen Jones," I said. He came up on stage, shook hands with Melody, then I flashed us to Olympus.
I was the only Olmpian here now. Now I will say that final line.
"Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds, be ever in your favor."
