PostSubject: The Reapings! (35th Games)   Tue Jan 07, 2014 10:23 pm



The District 12 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.

"Madelyn Foster. 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.

"Xav Fuchs. Everyone these are your tributes for the 35th Annual Hunger Games!"

You could hear a pin drop. Or, that's what Xav could hear. Certainly that wasn't his name. But it was. Xavier Fuchs. No, it couldn't be. The exact thing he said would never happen. It happened. He looked around, frantic, trying to spot Rose or Will. He knew Will's plans, but could he, would he? The faces were lost in the crowd as he finally moved to the stage. The only face he knew was Madelyn. Madelyn. Of all people to spend your last moments with, why was it her?

Will swore his heart skipped a beat if not several. When he was finally able to comprehend who's name was called, he still couldn't believe it. So, he would just volunteer...but why wasn't he doing it? His voice felt like it was caught, and he couldn't yell out. Why was his body betraying him? Was he secretly afraid? No... He thought to himself, I'm not a coward...but if so, why won't I yell? He tried to shove past everyone, but it was no use. He noticed he could ask them to move out of the way, but for some reason he couldn't raise his voice. He looked at Xav, a look of pain clearly written on Will's face and he shook his head looking down. He even tried to scream out, but what came out was more of a whimper. Maybe it was his subconscious fighting against his body...the only thing he could think of at this point was: Why?

Rosalie had been standing there for awhile as she heard the lady speak and then talk about the same old thing every year. Rose hated these things, they were so boring and dull, at least spice them up or something, but then again everyone was silent when someone was reaped. It happened every year though. Rose played with the hem of her dress, which was fairly pretty, as she had been the mayor's daughter so she had to look good. Especially if she was reaped. Soon they mentioned ladies first. Her heart was pounding and it felt like time kept going by so slowly as she reached her hand in and pulled out a slip of paper. After reading it, she spoke aloud. "Maddelyn Fosters" The name called out. She was relieved it wasn't her own but it took a minute for it to sink in. "No." she said softly and turned to her friend beside her. She was reaped? Rose had just noticed she had clutched onto Maddie's hand. "You can't go." She said quietly to her but soon the peacekeepers were coming and she had to loosen her grip on her hand. Tears started to pool in her eyes as Maddie walked up there. Then they went to the boys. Rosalie was desperately hoping that, no one else she was close would be getting reaped until she heard his name. Xav's. She put her head down and she began to cry more but she wouldn't stand for this.

"No!" Rosalie screamed as she tried making her way through the crow, "You can't take them!" She shouted running for the stage but two peacekeepers came and grabbed her by the waist trying to pull her back. "Don't touch me!" She snapped at them struggling against them more and she was still crying, tears streaming down her face.

Maddie heard her name boom over the loud speakers, making her freeze. She thought it was her head saying it, like everyone thought. But then, people stared at her. She knew it wasn't her head now. Maddie walked cautiously through the pathway of people that just looked happy that it wasn't them. Yeah, these 'things' are lucky.. She thought in her head. She felt a hand grab her own, and looked back. It was Rose. "Don't worry, I'll win. For you and Xavier and Will and everyone." She said. Maddie walked up the few steps onto the stage, and looked at the hundreds of children wait for the boys. She heard who it was. Okay, Xavier? Really? Of all people, why the person I hate. She froze from gently swaying her arm around. This meant more than just her not standing him, but her friend's happiness. She could tell very well that Rose liked him, and now felt bad for the girl. Maddie knew that she couldn't win. She would rather her friends be happy than her own. She didn't know how, but she was going to help Xavier win. Yeah, like that will work. I hate him, he hates me, we'll both be dead in the blood. She thoughts. Maddie knew Xavier would never apologize to her, but it didn't matter. Her heart kept beating until he stage was full of a man, girl, and the escort. Maddie looked that Rose, trying to push through the crowd. This was one of the things she'd miss. She looked over to Xavier, smiling. "Look, you have to win to make her happy. Not because you'll be even more rich, but because she wants her friends to be happy. So friends for now?" Maddie whispered to Xavier's ear.

With each passing moment, Xav's hope faded. He scanned the crowd, finally catching Will's eyes. He looked like he was at a loss for words. Of course. Will must've never thought this would happen. Slowly, Xav realized what he'd once said was coming true; he was the most likely to enter the games. That's when he heard Rose cry out. Don't, don't do that he silently told her, it was too painful to watch. But she didn't stop, fighting against the peacekeepers even after it was pointless. And then Madelyn was at his ear, telling him to win for Rose, asking if they could be friends for now. It took a moment before he could finally give a small nod; the only response he could give.

Then, the peacekeepers were taking him away. He knew them, knew them well, but they wouldn't let him out of this. The one thing his mother couldn't help him with. Then Xav saw her, by the doors of the Justice Building. Under her mask, he could see the tears in her eyes. He tried to give his mother a smile, but it came out more like a grimace.

Finally, he was shoved in a room to wait for the final goodbyes. It took a minute before the door opened again, and he turned slowly, expecting his mother or father to come in.

Will noticed Xav being taken into the goodbye rooms. He was too late...he wanted to just sit there and yell at himself, but he couldn't. Xav at least deserved this one last thing. He pushed his way past everyone, even shoving some people over to get to that room. He calmed down a bit as he got to the door, and opened it carefully, stepping inside. When he see's Xav, he doesn't care at this point and when the door shuts, a few tears begin to fall down his cheeks as he goes to try and embrace him. "I'm sorry Xav...I tried to yell out, I...I didn't know why I couldn't...I'm a coward...dammit, I know I am...you deserve better than the Games, I deserve them....I'm a horrible friend..."

The hope fell from my mind as I realized who it was. Will's face suddenly only meant one thing: betrayal. I take a step back as he comes in, even though I can see the tears spring up in his eyes. Sure I didn't really want him in the games, but now I know that he was my only hope; and he didn't stop this. "Shut it," I finally say, irritated at his apologies; nothing could change my opinion. "And do you really think Rose would appreciate having to fear for the lives of all of us in one day?She deserves better thsn this." I distract myself from thoughts of Will for Rose. I don't want to fight with him now.

Will instantly knew that he felt betrayed, that he was angry. Will shook his head and said, "You think I don't realize that? You think I only care about myself? I truly wanted to volunteer, but...I really don't know." He was trying his best to have the tears stop, but they wouldn't.

I look away; I can't stand watching him anymore. "I know you did but...can't do anything now. Take care of Rose until I get back. Mom and Dad too; they'll have some...issues about this," I say, emphasizing the "until I get back" part. I know I have to come back.

Will nods slowly, regaining his composure and sighs. "Alright Xav...and also...don't you dare come back to District 12 without your life. For everyone's sake." And with that, he turns around and walks out the door. He sighs as he does so, wondering if he just closed the door on a piece of his life. He probably did...it should've been Xav on this side of the door though. Will knew it..but now, he couldn't tell anyone. He imagined the guilt he would feel if Xav died...he shook all of those thoughts out of his head and walked away.

Rosalie had tried to visit Maddie for a goodbye but assumed she was saying goodbye to her parents and she'd come back to say goodbye to her later. As for now she knew that Xav had just finished saying goodbye to someone and she soon had the peacekeepers open the door and they pushed her in. Her eyes darted around the room and they landed on Xav. She didn't know what to say right away, she was suddenly at a loss for words but she ran over and wrapped her arms around him, hugging him.

I give a half-sided smile to Will, "You can count on me," I say as he leaves. Then he's gone and I'm alone. I start to pace the room, subconsciously fixing the outfit I chose for the reaping; it got twisted a bit in the distance from outside and into here. The door opens again, and just as I turn back to face who's next, she's wrapping her arms around me. For a second, I'm stunned, then I return the embrace, something I didn't allow Will. "Rose?" I say, silently questioning how she's feeling, if she'll be okay through all of this.

Rose soon felt his arms wrap around her and that's when she realized how little she had hugged anyone really. She never felt the warmth of a hug too often, not with her father always busy. Rose hadn't let her arms go but instead she rested her head on his chest and she soon heard his voice calling her name in a questioning tone. "Yea, Xav?" She asked looking up at him.

For a moment I don't remember what I wanted to say. This is probably the closest I've ever been or will be to her, so I have to enjoy it for a moment, right? "You're going to be okay, right?" I ask her quietly, hoping the words come out right.

Rose knew it wouldn't do her much good to get close to him right before he left, but she fought against him and she knew he was strong and given the chance and the proper weapons and he'd have a good shot. At least she'd like to tell herself. She heard him ask his next thing and she sighed softly. She pulled away slightly, still holding on loosely but she looked up into his eyes. "I'll be okay, don't worry about me, worry about yourself." She said smiling at him and she was holding back tears a bit, and she soon leaned in and she softly pressed her lips to his kissing him. She might not get another chance to ever know what it'd be like if she hadn't.

I give a small smile as she tells me to worry about myself, already formulating a response. Something along the lines of "There's no reason to worry about me" or something. I can see the tears starting to form, and I know there'll be a lot of those to come, but I don't want her crying right now. While I'm thinking all of this, I don't notice as she leans forward; that is, until her lips are on mine. For a second, I think it's an accident. But of course not; I just don't know exactly why she's doing it. So, I just go with it, last chance and all that. Then there's a knock at the door. Time's up, moment ruined. I pull back from Rose, even though I don't want to. The 'keepers will be in here any second to drag her out. "I'll see you soon," I tell her as I let her go.
