No flames please. I'm totally obsessed with The Hunger Games so this is a spoof. You may see similarities but I'll make it as different as I much as I can. You may find out who some of these characters relate to but you know? It's amazing!
Plus, I love Cato, Peeta, and Gale. I think they are so hott! But I feel that Cato gets no love. I love him! :) lol Enjoy! And these places where they live are villiages, not districts.\
I don't own anything from the Hunger Games at all. Please just know that. All that goes to the best author in the world...Suzanne Collins.
Playing Survival of the Fittest. That must be pretty tough to know that you're fighting for your life and people get to watch it all over the world. They would see updates on the broadcast about the tributes that have been chosen to play Suvival of the Fittest. Today was a stressful day for the Rose family. Father was out trying to make a living for his wife and two young daughters, Serena and Emily.
Emily hated when her father had to work. They couldn't go hunting together. It was rare when her father would get a day off working with the manufacturing business. He made all kinds of things so that people could have decent furniture. The old run-down town, Village 14, wasn't as popular or rich as the higher villages, but none of them could comapre to the Metropolis, the evil people who created and the Survial of the Fittest.
Emily grabbed her bow and arrow and told her mother and sister goodbye. She decided to go hunting with her best friend Antonio Garcia. Antonio was always with her when she hunted. Even if her father was there with her. They would go hunt, because when her father isn't payed enough, she brings home the meals. She practically like a provider for the Rose family. Then she met Antonio out in the woods way past Village 14.
"Hey Antonio," I greeted my best friend, Antonio Garcia.
"Hey. I thought you weren't going to show up. I was getting worried," Antonio replied. I smiled and patted his shoulder.
"You catch anything yet?" I asked.
"I'm not sure. I set up some traps but I'm more of a fishing guy. You know that already though," Antonio said. I giggled at how his hunting skills were. They weren't bad at all, he is an excellent hunter, but let's face it. He is most defanantly a fishing type of guy. My smile turned away at the sound of racing foot steps.
"Did you hear that?" I asked another question. He nodded and layed his hand on back guiding me to the noise. We were being as quiet as we could be when we spotted it. Not just one deer, two!
"Shoot it!" Antonio whispered. He was trying to be quiet when one of the deer fell over by the arrow in it's neck. The other was so startled it ran away, but got caught in Antonio traps.
"Score!" Antonio screamed when I shushed him.
He toned down,"Sorry."
"It's ok. You just got to be quiet up here. The Metropolis can hear what we say," I explain. Antonio nodded and killed the deer with his pocket knife and cutting it down from his trap. I pryed the arrow from my deer's neck and cleaned it off with my shirt and but it back with the others. I strapped the bow to my back along with my arrows and tried to pick the heavy deer up.
"You need some help?" Antonio asked.
"Yes please," I beg.
Antonio keeps his deer in his trap and picks mine up in the other arm. We walked back into the town and I took my deer home. I left Antonio as he went home with a meal for his family which he also had to provide for. I walked through the door and saw Serena, my mother, and father, getting ready for the Tributary Choosing later on today. I layed the deer down in the floor as father whistle, impressed with what I caught.
"We didn't only catch one. We got two so Antonio took one and I got one," I told my father.
"Good job sweetie. Nice catch," My mother said,"Go get ready we got to leave in here in a minute."
"Yes mother," I say. Serena looks very nice. She wearing a white, frilly skirt that went a little past her knees. Her blue blouse was my mother's. It was a very pale baby blue color with white buttons and some black slip on's to go with it.
I went into my room and pulled out the nicest Tributary Choosing attire, I could find. I put on some khaki pants and a light yellow blouse, the sleeves were rolled up and hugged me tightly. I brushed out my pony tail and put a few clips in it to keep some stands out of my face. I walked back into the living room and sighed.
"Ready?" Father asked. I nodded and looked at Serena. We've been apart of this Tributary Choosing for four years and have been lucky to not be chosen yet. But I just had this weird feeling that something terrible was going to happen today. Maybe it was the nausous feeling in my stomach? I don't know.
We walked out to the circle where the Tributary Choosing was taking place. We already saw the mentor of the tributes, Thomas Oliver. He was sitting over with the Mayor on a large stage which was connected to the stage in which the tributes will be chosen. I saw the two large bowls. Having every girl and boy's names in it from ages 11 through 21. It didn't seem like much, but it was a lot.
This was when we were all departed from our familes. Parents and guardians waited behind this long rope that was about 3 feet away from the circle where we were split up by gender and then by age group. Then the sponsor for Village 14 walked up to the mircophone.
Lily Chillman was way over rated. Standing there in the same shirt as me, blowing kisses to her husband Casey Rhodes. I looked over and saw Antonio who looked back at me and shrugged.
"Hello people of Village 14. I am Lily Rhodes and I will be reading the names of our tributes, who will participate in the 100th annual Suvival of the Fittest games! Out of 27 other people, to bring home all the wealth and fame," Lily sighed with a smile on her face,"Let's get started shall we?"
"Gentlemen first?" Lily asked. She reached inside the large bowl of men's names. She almost fell into the bowl from how large it was and how high her heels were. She pulled out a card and tore it open. She smiled when she read the name. . . . .
"Jason Scott," Thomas Oliver raced onto stage when Lily announced his name. We heard a woman's cry from the crowd. Jason walked up to the stage, but was stopped by the young woman.
"Jason!" She cried.
"Kimberly," I heard him call her. She ran up to him and cupped his face in her hands. He layed his forehead on hers and I layed my hand on my chest, tragic.
"Jason Scott!" Lily yelled.
"I'm coming!" He fussed at her. Kimberly cried some more when I heard him say these words to her.
"I'll try to come home. I want to be there for you," Jason layed his hand on Kimberly's stomach,"And this baby." She nodded and gave him a long kiss on the lips before the gaurds took her away. Lily's frown turned the other way as she reached into the women's bowl.
My heart pumped out of my chest. What is Serena was chosen? She was sick already, she wouldn't make it through this if she were chosen. She pulled out the long strip, reading the name of the tribute. Who was it though? That's all I care about and I hate that it takes so long to read this.
It felt like my heart stopped and I couldn't hear anymore when Lily called out this name. . . .
Next Chapter: Emily and Jason say their final goodbyes to friends and family and go to the Metropolis to meet the other Tributaries. One of them quickly catches Emily's eyes. Does she catch his eyes as well though?
