Sparkle Copper's POV
Ah the Hunger Games. I'm glad it's the 178th Hunger Games. Because boy am I ready for this. I am 18 so it's my last year for a chance into these games.
"Sparkle. Get down here! Final training before you enter the games!" I hear my mother say.
"Be right down." I say.
I run down to meet up with my mother. My 11 year old brother is down there and he is starting up with sword training.
"You need to work on your bow and arrow. So work on it." my mom says.
I go to the bow and arrow training station. We live in Victor's Village so we have our own little training room in our house. My mom and dad won past games. My mom is 148th and my dad is 145th. So our districts expects a lot from us.
I go to the bow and arrow stations. I start off by shooting a few arrows. First one misses the chest. The second one hit's the neck. The third gets the head.
"Good Sparkle. Why don't you work on your specialty while I help your brother work spears." my mom says.
"Ok." I agree.
I go over to my favorite. I love the use of axes. I just love them. They are so fun. I grab a few small axes and hatchets and start throwing. They all are kill shots. Soon I run out and take them out of the dummy and redo them. I repeat this a couple of times.
"Sparkle. It's time to get ready." my mom says.
"Ok." I say.
I run to my room. I take a quick shower and then I put on my nice sparkly yellow dress. Then I straighten my hair and put it to the side so that its on the right side of my chest. Then I put on matching heels. Soon I think that I am good. I run back down.
"Ok. Verbal quiz." my mom says.
"Shoot away." I say.
"If you can't get an ax. What do you get?" she asks.
"Throwing knives or spears." I say. I am also really good at spears.
"Who is the leader of the Career alliance." she asks.
"District 1. But of course me!" I say.
"Good. One last one. In the Career blood bath. Who do you avoid?" she asks.
"District 2. And you also said no romance." I say.
"Good. Have fun." she says.
I leave for reaping. Soon I make it there and check in. Soon our new escort walks on stage. She must be new because this one is much more shorter.
"Hello District 1 and welcome to reapings! I'm your new escort. My name is Tril. I hope we get some good winners!" she says. "Ladies first!"
She walks over to the girls bowl. She swishes her hand for a little bit and picks a name. Then she walks over back to her spot. She opens it and reads it. Then what it looks like takes a deep breath.
"Dyanne Downs!" she says.
"I VOLUNTEER!" I scream.
I hear cheering. I walk up on stage and I hear the guys whistle and the girls cheer my name.
"My name is Sparkle Copper." I say.
I am in these games. Now it's time for me to take on my family's legacy and win.
Silver Stone's POV
I walk to the training center. When I get there I meet up with my trainer and we start training.
"Ok. Throw these spears." he says.
I throw all of them. They all are kill shots. Its so easy. Soon we go over to the bow and arrows. Like usual I do all kill shots. Then we go over to swords. I show that I can kill anyone with it.
"Is there something your not good at? Ok, lets try hand to hand combat." my trainer says.
He gets the hand to hand combat trainer. I show him what I know. Then we try a trail run. I pin him in less then ten seconds. This is getting boring. The only reason why I even went to training so that I know I was good. This year is my year I'll volunteer.
"Ok. Silver. Your good. Anything else you wanna try?" my trainer asks.
"Nope." I say.
We shake hands. Then I leave. I make it home in time to find what? My mom arguing with May, my six year old sister.
"You have to learn some kind of weapon." my mom says.
"But I won't kill." May says.
"I'll take care of it." I say to my mom.
My mom thanks me and she leaves.
"Why won't you learn to use a weapon?" I ask.
"Because I am not strong. So I can't pick stuff up." she says.
"Why not throw knives?" I ask.
"I never thought of that." she says.
"Here, let me show you." I say.
I take a few kitchen knives and we go outside. I show her how to throw a knife. Then she tries. She is really good. Needs a little more aim and some power but other than that she is good.
"I have to get ready for reaping." I say.
"Ok." May says.
I run into my room. I put on a blue t-shirt and some pants. Then I put on some shoes and then I leave my room. I make it to the front door when I meet up with my mom and dad.
"Thanks for teaching May. Now she won't stop." they say.
"Yup. Got to go." I say.
"Good luck." my father says.
I make it to reaping. I check in and stand in the 17 year olds. Soon our new escort gets on stage. She is wearing pink dress. But it goes with her pink hair. She sounds bored and yet excited. She then picks a girl. A girl named Sparkle is picked. I know her. She is this really annoying girl. She will get far. I wouldn't be surprised if she won.
"Time for the guys!" Tril says.
She goes to the guys bowl and picks a guys name really fast. Then she goes back to her spot. She opens it and reads the name.
"Gabe Gold!" she screams.
"I VOLUNTEER!" I say.
I get a lot of hoots and cheers. I even get girls touching my shoulder and try to flirt with me. I get on the stage and stand next to Sparkle.
"Your name?" Tril asks.
"My name is Silver Stone." I say.
I know that I can win this. So far I know that Sparkle is going to be an issue.
Hello! Decided to do two stories to keep my busy. Even though I feel that's going to bite me in the butt. Anyways, What do you think of Silver and Sparkle? Please review!
