PostSubject: The Reapings! (35th Games)   Tue Jan 07, 2014 10:22 pm



The District 10 escort steps up on stage and smiles with blindingly white teeth at the crowd filled with blank stares looking up at her. Without a moment to lose she starts speaking in a high pitched voice that holds the very distinctive Capitol accent in it, "Welcome, welcome everyone to the Reapings! Today one young man and woman will be chosen for the honor of participating in the 35th Annual Hunger Games!" She steps up to the big bowls containing the names of every child in the district from 12 to 18, little strips of white paper are filled about half way up that hold the fate of two people in that crowd today. "Now then, Ladies first!" she says, as she breaks away from the microphone set up in the center and goes to the first bowl on her right. With a few twirls of her hand as if she is deciding on which slip looks most enticing, she reaches into the bowl filled with girls names...

The escort dips her hand into the large bowl and delicately lifts up a single slip of white paper from the bowl full of females names. With a quick yet planned motion she walks back to the center microphone and opens it up, but not before clearing her throat before announcing the name aloud to the anxious crowd.

"Alice Martin. And now for the boys."



Copying the same thing she had just done a minute or two earlier, the escort makes her way to the front of the large, clear bowl and waves her hand above it for a few seconds before letting it plunge down into the stack of slips. She pulls one out, quickly makes her way back to the center of the stage and reads it aloud.

"Derald Hafer. Everyone these are your tributes for the 35th Annual Hunger Games!"

Derald stood there among the rest of the boys hearing his name. He's heard it so many times by the same high pitched voice, he was already numbed to it. Almost every time he gets up on that stage, and every year some idiot (which of course he's thankful for) volunteers. Every year Derald counts the number of times his name is in there, what are the odds huh? He wanted to be able to look for familiar faces in the crowd, but he couldn't. How could he when there wasn't anyone in there? Guess Derald really needed more friends. Well of course he knew people, but wouldn't it be better if he didn't? Then there'd be less to feel about. Derald stood on that stage, arms crossing his chest as he leaned on one leg. His facade perfected to a T where he was sure almost no one can see through his smile. He could do this, it was just like every other year.

Except, he could so possibly die.

Except, he was sent up to a room instead of back down the stage. It was so silent in that room, just him and the lonely. "Hey look on the bright side," Derald muttered to himself in the chirpy toned that usually came out as easy as breathing, "at least no one was dumb enough to volunteer." He shrugged and pulled a grin as he looked out the only window in the room, showing the crowd dispersing, going back to their daily lives like nothing ever happened. That's how it was every year. You come, hope you're not up there, and you go back. Derald dropped his head down, laughing weakly, "I ain't even got a chance to say bye to Dusk." That dog would probably be worried sick when he doesn't come back by dinner. He didn't even want to imagine how she'll react when she realise that he wasn't coming back any time soon. Derald stood there, hands holding on to the window sill, wondering if anyone would even come up here to see him.
