I haven't realised what I did to my parents. My father is in District 5 as peacekeeper and my mother is alone, when I die. How could I be so stupid? Librae brought me inside the town hall, where the tributes get their last visitors.
I was waiting for my mother. Would she come? But the door opens and my mom hugged me. 'Four,' she said, 'Why did you volunteer? What was you thinking?' I started 'Mom, don't worry, I've trained. I'll belong to the careers, like every tribute from 2.'
'But why did you volunteer?' She know why I volunteered, because of Alicia. 'Mom, I volunteered because I want to protect Alicia. I can't live without her.' My mother hit me and walked away. Why should she do that?
A few moments later Mr. and Mrs. Herriot came to me. Mrs. Herriot hugged me, she was exactly Alicia and Mr. Herriot patted my shoulder. Mr. Herriot started 'Four, this is true love. You go into the Games, to protect the woman you love.' That is the reason they came.
Librae brought me and Alicia, after our family left, to the train, which would bring us to the Capitol. I was laying against Alicia, when we were riding to the train.
I've never travelled with a train. But, the train, so luxurious, everything was shiny and Capitolish. I would touch everything in the train. But, I was interrupted by Librae, who brought us to our bedrooms and told us to clean ourselves.
After a great shower, I don't know how I get that thing on, our mentor Enobaria, who survived the Games twice, told us the basic things, try to survive and try to become a career, but you are already a career.
After her speech, we watches the other Reapings. District 1, two very stong children, specially the girl. I must become a friend of her, if I'll be sure she wouldn't kill me. I wanted to see my own fault of volunteer.
District 3 and 4 weren't special, but 5. Who is that beautiful girl? I hope she can be a career, or I will be no career. Wait, I'm here to protect Alicia. But, I'll met that girl.
Alicia saw me and started with yelling. 'ARE YOU WATCHING TO THAT DISTRICT 5 GIRL? YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND! IF I SEE YOU WATCHING TO ANY FEMALE TRIBUTE, I'LL KILL THEM, STARTING WITH THAT RED GIRL!'
'Alicia, calm down!' sneered Enobaria to her. 'You can't attack each other before the Games. Keep your anger for then. That will be your tactic. And for you, Four, try to be a volunteer that will fight for love.'
