I do not own the Hunger Games Universe or any of the characters, with the exception of Livia Thorne. This is strictly just for fun. It's my first attempt at a drabble series. The series will encompass the entire 51st Hunger Games and will be told from the POV of Haymitch. Enjoy!

A Song with Thorns

The Old Victor

He never told me what he did to them. The man with the cold eyes. He let me go home and didn't say a word about it.

After my victory, he approached me. He even threatened me. Apparently, I was too resourceful. It was taken as an act of defiance. I didn't think anything of it. I was too stubborn and too blind to realize what I had done.

I did nothing wrong though. I played his stupid games. I just wish I would've known what he was capable of. But I couldn't anticipate what would come next. The night I had found the mangled bodies.

He had them scattered throughout the house. Everyone I had loved. Snow had killed them all.

My name is Haymitch Abernathy, and I'm the Victor who has nothing to live for.
