Star: Hey! Star here! With a major case of writers block but I'm still fighting.
Lilly: Don't be so dramatic -_-
Star: SHUT UP LILLY! Anyways, enjoy this chapter. I do not own The Hunger Games or characters. Um... I like chips.
As I got near the huge house, I checked the mailbox. Great. A letter from "Yours truly, The Capital Committee." I entered the empty and shadowy house. Nobody was awake. I went to the kitchen to read the letter since the windows brought a whole bunch on non existing sunshine. I opened the letter from the damn Capital. I skimmed through the printed gold letters and my eyes were wide open.
The celebration for the 30th Rebellion Anniversary shall be held in District 2, for the Capital has over exceeded the amount of events for that day and can't hold anything else. Please leave District 12 at 8PM sharp on May 12. We really need you to attend once again. I'm terribly sorry to inform you that there is no more room in the hotels. You're going to have to find some place else to live. Thank you for your time and we hope to see you once again."
"Wait," I mumbled to myself and turned to look at the calender,"today is May 12... Dammit! We got the letter later or something. This isn't good." I went upstairs and I heard voices from Ivy's room. I stood close to the door and heard another voice. It sounded like... Aundrae Hawthorne! I paid close attention. I could tell they completely forgot about the world. They were speaking loud and clear.
"So are you going or not?" he asked her.
"I dunno. If I do I'd probably be sneaking out or something," Ivy said,"but I'm going to try really hard to go."
"Okay. I can't wait until tonight," Aundrae said. Can't wait for what? What the heck is going on here?! Oh no. Oh no. Please tell me Aundrae is taking advantage of Ivy.
"Me either," Ivy giggled.
"I'm going to make it special just watch," he said. Yup. He is definatley trying to get laid. Well he is. In a freaking tomb underground when I shoot an arrow through his head! I walked in quickly, and Aundrae and Ivy gasp.
"M-Mom," Ivy stuttered.
"You, aren't going anywhere tonight beause we are going to be in District 2. Aundrae, leave before I go get my bow and arrows," I threatened. I saw the fear in his Seam gray eyes and disappeared.
"Mom!" Ivy groaned.
"Don't Mom me," I said,"you're having a secret relationship behind our backs!" Ivy stayed quiet before bursting out in tears.
"But I love him!" she said and threw her self in the pillow. Oh great. I'm going to have those conversations like in the Capital soap operas where the daughter claims her and her forbidden boyfriend love each other, and then the mother tells her what's right and what's wrong. They are currently wrong, and the mom always wins. Always.
"Look Ivory," I said and laid down next to her,"your a teenager. A little lady, but you don't understand what love is. You can't think Aundrae loves you just because he's going to make stuff... um special or whatever."
"You heard that?" she asked in between sobs.
"Yes I did," I said,"you're smarter than that Ivy. Don't just give yourself away. He's hungry for lust. That's all he wants. You're too young but mature enough to understand that. Don't. Do. It."
"I'm sorry," Ivy cried. I wrapped my arms around her like I did when she was little and had a nightmare. Those days are over. Though like Luminitza said, they're going to be back.
During breakfast, I realized my little boy wasn't there.
"Where's Lee-Lark?" I asked.
"Over here," he said as he entered the kitchen with a huge grin.
"Why so happy today shorty?" Ivy asked him.
"No reason booger face," Ivan responded.
"Big ears!" Ivy yelled.
"Flat chested!" Ivan yelled back.
"Ugly hair!" Ivy said back. Ivan gasped in shock.
"You did not just offend the hair!" Ivan snapped his fingers.
"Oh yes I did," Ivy snapped back.
"Enough!" Peeta interrupted them. They stayed silent and Ivan sat down. Even though they started making faces to each other.
"I need to tell you guys something," I said to them.
"What is it?" Mom asked. Shoot! I forgot Mom was still here. Guess she'll be heading back with us.
"We're heading towards District 2. Tonight," I finished.
"What? Why?" Peeta asked.
"The Rebellion thing is going to be held there," I explained. "Mom, do you know anywhere where we could stay?"
"My house of course," Mom said. I smiled a smile of appreciation.
By 7:55, we were at the train station. We go on and got ready for a long train ride. Ivy and Ivan are used to everything, so they are like whatever with all the fancy stuff. They've been going their whole lives. Gosh, don't even remind me the years they were born. It was horrible. Everyone wanted to see them, carry then, and what ever weird Capital people do to babies. Of course, I didn't let anyone carry them. They might have been kidnapped or something. The trip to 2 was going to be long, so we all settled in.
After many hours of the train ride, we finally arrived. The fancy strrets were crowded with District 2 people and Capital people. I could tell them apart because of their clothes. We took a cab to Mom's house. Turns out she moved to a calmer neighborhood near the woods. Her house was big but not too big; it had enough rooms for all of us. It around one in the afternoon, so I decided to go in the woods. I was exiting, Ivan came up to me.
"Where you going Mom?" Ivan asked.
"The woods," I responded. They aren't illegal anymore, so I could roam freely.
"I wanna go!" Ivan said and jumped up and down. Gosh, he is such a child.
"Fine," I said with a smile. We walked a few seconds until we reached the gates to the forest. Its sounds better, but in reality it's just a wooden fence and a steel door. I looked closer at the gate. Someone must have entered with out permission because it had a broken chain.
"Are we allowed here?" Ivan asked me.
"Don't worry about it Lee-Lark, there's advantages to being a Mockingjay," I said with a smile and we walked in. The woods here had a beautiful stream going who knows where, and there was a path next to it that lead in to the woods. There was a bench in front of the stream, and we sat in front of it.
"Hey Mom," Ivan said,"who was the other guy who almost took you away from Dad?" Gosh, how many times will we do this?
"Don't think about it," I said.
"Why? I just want to know his name," Ivan said.
"His name was Gale alright. He was Gale Hawthorne and he was my best friend," I said.
"Glad to know you haven't forgotten about me, Catnip," said the voice that belonged to the one and only, Gale Hawthorne.
Star: Cliffy! Yay! Anyways... I hope you like it. Review please!
