This is my first fanfic, so I'm sorry if it is a little bit bad. I am going to try and update every day because I don't have many friends so I have nothing to do. I'm only in 7th grade so yeah...but here it is :))
My name is Katniss Everdeen. I live in District 2. I am 16 and today is the day I volunteer for the 74th annual Hunger Games. I have been trainning for this since I was 7. I am best at the bow and arrows but I am good at throwing knives too.
My sister primrose is 12 and this is her first reaping, and she is scared but i was scared at my first reaping too. She has been trainning since she was 9, she throws knives but she is not very good, I have tried to teach her but she just does not get it. She prefers healing people then hurting people, she wants to be a nurse when she gets older just like her mother.
My father died in the 2nd Quarter Quell (50th Hunger Games).(I know it dosen't make sense how can Katniss and Prim be born if her father died so long age but just go with it) He was killed by Haymitch Abernathy the mentor and only victor of 12 alive.
My mother fell into a depression after my father died. She won't look or talk to me, she says I look to much like my father. But she loves Prim she talks to her alot. She works at the local hospital.
Then there is Gale he is my one and only best friend. We met when I was 7 and he was 9, on are first day of trainning. I was shy when I was younger so when I said my name to him he thought I said Catnip so now he calles me that all the time, it gets annoying. He is great with a sword. He is 18 this is his last reaping , he does not want me to volunteer but I want to, to honor my father.
When I get home from trainning, I start to get ready for the reaping. I put on a sparkly blue dress, I hate dresses but if i want to get sponsers I have to wear it, then I put on a pair of black flats. I curl my hair and put a black bow in it. I put on pale pink eyeshadow and mascara on. When I finish I wait for Prim to finish getting ready. When she comes out she is wearing a pale pink dress and black flats, with her hair in two braids.
While she goes and says goodbye to mother I wait outside. When she comes out she is sobbing, and I already know it is because I am volunteering to day.
"It's going to be okay." I say to her
"But what if you die." she sobbs
"I won't I promise, I will come back to you." I say to her
When she finally calms down we walk to where the reaping takes place. I stand where the 16 year old girls stand and Prim stands were the 12 year old girls stand. I look over to find Gale I find him standing where the 18 year old boys stand, he is staring at me I stare back at him until we hear the Distrct 2 escourt Alexis Miller.
"Welcome to the 74th annual Hunger Games reaping, ladies first, Skyler Anderson, any volunteers." Alexis says
"I volunteer." I yell and go up to the stage
"What is your name dear?" Alexis asks me
"Katniss Everdeen." I say
"Next the boys, Michel Jones, any volunteers." Alexis says
"I volunteer." I hear someone yell from the boys section
"What is your name dear." Alexis asks the boy
"Peeta Mellark." The boy says
Great I think Peeta Mellark hates my guts for a reason I don't even know and may never.
"Well that concludes this years reaping give it up for this years tributes Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark." Alexis says
After the reaping me, Peeta, and Alexis go to the justice building to see our family and friends. My first visitor is prim and she is sobbing. I walk up to her and hug her tight and try to calm her down, she just continues sobbing. I finally get her to calm down.
"Everything is going to be okay Prim." I say
"Just come home." she says
"I will I promise." I say
After that the peacekeepers take her out, and my next visitor is Gale. He comes up to me and hugs me we hug for a long time.
"You have to come home, Catnip." he says
" I will." I say
He gives me one last hug before the peacekeepers take him out. The only thing that I know now is that I am going to win for Prim, Gale, and my father and nothing is going to stop me.
