PostSubject: District 12 Train   Sat Jan 11, 2014 9:13 am



I step onto the train with all my usual confidence, despite everything that just happened to me. Gotta keep up appearances. Otherwise, no sponsors. No one wants the weak kid from Twelve. I find myself in the lounge car, filled with fluffy couches and coffee tables. There's a snack bar to the side, but I ignore it. Completely. Instead, I take a seat, longways, on a smaller couch, leaning my back against one arm and throwing my legs over the other.
After a second, I pull my tie loose, as it's started to constrict me; I could never wear ties for very long. As I take it off, I realize I forgot about my pin. It's a little silver fox tail that my father gave to me on my first reapings. The family crest or something. I always pinned it on the bottom of the tie so no one would see; it never quite matched my outfit. Now, though, I pin it directly onto my shirt, barely visible underneath the jacket. Of course, as I'm doing all this, I don't notice as someone else comes into the car.

After Maddie had said goodbye to Rose, Will, and her own family, she was escorted by Peacekeepers out of the room and onto a train. She didn't really know what to expect exactly, but she knew it would be annoying. Maddie always thought that the Capitalists bragged about every good thing they have that everyone else doesn't have. The door into the train opened, and she was amazed. This is better than like.. the richest home in District Twelve. She thought, although it probably wasn't true. There were some very rich people in her district. She took a look around the first car, and thought of how much paradise it was. But sadly, she could never forget that its just to make us forget about us dying in less than a week or two.
Still exploring the cars, Maddie gave the whole thing a seven out of ten. The only reason that was is because she hated paradise. But still, this made her like it a bit more. She went into a car, that looked like her living room, but fancier. It has luxurious couches and perfect tables. Maddie looked around and saw Xavier. She smiled, leaning up against the corner of the car.

Nicanor walked into another train compartment. He had just been wandering around, pacing until the tributes came onto the train. He did not want to be here at all, not because he did not care about helping these children, but because it reminded him too much of Lori. He finally noticed that both of his tributes were in this train car. He took a deep breath and went to go introduce himself, "Hello Xavier, Hello Maddie. I am sorry that this has happened to you two." He sat down in chair that gave him a line of vision to both Xavier and Maddie and then spoke once again, "If you have any questions about what is going to happen in the next few days leading up to the games or anything related, please feel free to ask me." He looked at both of them once again, but he was finding it harder and harder to hold back tears, but he knew that he must.

I don't even glance back at Madelyn once I notice her presence, which isn't too long before Nicanor walks in. I watch him as he greets us, takes a seat. I don't move from my position on the couch, just rotate my head to look at him, again ignoring Madelyn. Sure, I agreed to be "friends" but it's hard when I have to look at her. I move my hands from the pin to the back of my head, relaxing more. "I think I'm good," I say, rotating my head to look back up at the ceiling.

Maddie watched as her mentor, Nicanor walked in. She was definitely going to be polite. She smiled and waved and him when he started talking. "Don't be sorry.." She said, assuring him. She looked over to Xav, who spoke in the most annoying voice to Nicanor. "Don't mind him, he's an embicle." She said, smiling. "So, for the games, I'm trying to protect him, but I also hate him.." Maddie said, not really knowing what advice to exactly ask for.

Nicanor paused for a second to collect his thoughts. He never expected to hear that as one of the first things when talking to two kids that just got chose to kill one another. But they did seem like they were not shaken by that fact. He looked Maddie in her eyes, avoiding anything eye contact with Xavier, since he was very adament that he did not care what Nic said, "Well then, I guess before I can answer that question to the best of my ability, I need to know your motive for protecting someone you hate." He already had a tiny suspicion why, but would never say anything about it.

I actually am listening, despite what they must think. Just, acting like you don't care helps. Of course, I can't ignore Madelyn's voice when she starts talking, saying she'll protect me. I hold back a comment of "I don't need protection from people like you" and just let it go. Gotta be friendly. Then our mentor asks why. I roll my head back to look at her. She looks upside down from where I'm positioned; it almost makes me laugh. "Rose?" I say, responding to Nicanor's question with a question of my own, though I already know it's probably the answer.

When Nic asked what she was protecting him for, even though she hated him, she paused. Why was she? It took her a minute, but she knew again. That's when Xav said the girl's name. "He loves her a lot and I want them to be happy together." Maddie answered his question with a quieter tone than usual. She didn't have a clue if Xavier approved of her talking about this, but she didn't really mind. She wanted answers to this and this only.

Nicanor could feel tears coming to his eyes as what Maddie had said reminded him of his promise to himself to protect Lori which had ultimately failed. He knew that this was not the same situation at all but he started to get some ideas on how to help them, which cleared the tears from his eyes before they could fall. He cleared his throat before he spoke, "It sounds like you both must love Rose a lot. If I am to help you two out, Xavier must be willing to show some signs of friendship towards you Maddie, after all, you said you were here to get him home to see her again. I am not asking you two to betray young lovers, just a mutual friendship. And Xavier, you must be willing to share something about her in your interview. It might be tough but people will like you more if you are personable. Not many people will go for the tough boy act from a boy from District 12."

I have to hold back the first words that spring into my mind. Everything the guy had said so far is common sense. Of course we have to pretend to be friends, of course not lovers or whatever. And why the hell wouldn't I share about Rose in my interview? It's the only communication I can give to her now, why wouldn't I say what I thought about her. Nicanor, I think, doesn't know what the hell he's doing. And that's no good for me. The last part of his rant, though, got to me. Act? What I'm doing isn't act and never will be. And, "Wish it wasn't District 12." After all, the tough guy "act" would work in any other district, right?

*Sowwie, gonna be short.*

Maddie listened to Nicanor talk. She didn't mind what he was saying, and actually agreed with it. Until Xavier opened his mouth.
"Uhh.. wish it wasn't twelve? What do you mean by that?" Maddie asked, taking it a bit offensively. If it wasn't for District 12, he wouldn't have met Rose. She thought of this harder and harder.
