The 75th Game (A Hunger Games Type Sequal)

The 75th Game (A Hunger Games Type Sequal)

It is time once again for the annual Hunger Games and of course May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor!

Chapter 1

One.

Highland lies quietly along the river. The closest district to the Capital. Although all the other districts knew us as District 1 we had recently named ourselves. Unfortunately our district has begun to fall. All of our boys were recently killed in a rowing accident in preparation for the games. Now all that is left for the reaping is girls. For the first time in 75 years there will be no boys fighting for our district.....talk about lost hope.

Avalone's POV

I get up extra early to allow time for the food to properly cook. Today is the reaping, and no one is excited. I look at the clock before turning the stove on low and beginning to shower. I exit the shower and comb my long curly black hair. I put it into a ponytail before looking in the mirror. My gorgeous blue eyes stare back at me with fear. My beautiful black dress with white stars is laid out on the bed. I look into the mirror one last time before slipping it on and heading to the kitchen, hopefully Scarlet will be here soon.

SCARLET'S POV

I brush out my short blonde hair and let it flow on my shoulders. I give myself an indecisive look, i really don't like wearing my hair down. My bright red dress is laid across my couch. Amanda picked it out last night before I went to bed. I look into the mirror again and see the tears starting inside my hazel eyes. What if Avalone gets picked? She's like my sister.

"Are you ready dear?" Amanda interrupts my thoughts. She's too old for the reaping now, at least that's one less person I have to worry about today.

"As ready as I'll ever be. C'mon, Avalone is cooking breakfast." I grab Amanda's hand and walk towards Avalone's house.
