A voice came from down the hall and Leon's head immediately snapped to the source, which seemed to be another tribute. Then he grew a wide grin, which may have looked unsettling with his red clown nose and blood spattered clothes. He began to swing his chicken around as he slowly walked towards the other tribute saying, "Hey there bud...seems you're a little lost. Kinda hard not to get lost in here though, right?" Leon chuckled and began looking around, extending his arms. "Is this your key gamemakers? Just send me a sign and I'll start the musical back up...I'm sure the kids at home could use a nice song." He winked and then looked back to boy, his chicken still being swung around by the neck.

The little girl hissed at the new presence as both her and the clown took their place in front of the door, as if protecting it from harm. They didn't like new people. And just as the clown touched the wood of the door, he paused before whispering to them, "It wants blood shed.."

Auralee was unnerved enough by the new presence as it was, but after Leon and the clown spoke, she felt chills run down her back. She didn't exactly want to have a tea party with this new guy, but killing him seemed a bit extreme. Auralee had almost let herself forget that she was in the Hunger Games. Death was the whole point. Killing one person to move on wasn't even the problem. You had to kill everyone, or die yourself. It was the basic premise of the Games she'd been in for days, even weeks now - she couldn't really tell how much time had passed - but it was still startling. She looked carefully at the newcomer. She would have been happier with herself if she'd found herself wondering if he deserved to die, though she knew the answer was no, than what she was currently pondering: could they take him? Auralee knew she wouldn't be much help, but she had a knife and she could sing along if that was a thing that was going to happen again. Would the clown and the girl fight with them, or stand aside? Auralee doubted they'd help, since their companionship had been won over through peace, sort of.

Auralee dug her fingernails into her palm, trying to steel her thoughts. She wanted to go home, not so much because she thought her life was that meaningful but because she didn't want to be here anymore. She didn't want to have to do this. As much as she knew some people would be ashamed to admit it, Auralee was scared of dying. Not just about whatever came after or because she didn't want to lose or because she had so much left to live for, but because death was scary. She didn't want to be in pain. She felt selfish and shallow for admitting it, but she figured that was human nature: the avoidance of pain, the pursuit of pleasure. It just usually wasn't this simple. Auralee didn't want to experience stabbing, shooting, starving, slashing, striking, slicing, disemboweling, beheading, quartering... she didn't even want to think about how many ways there were to die. She didn't want to kill this kid either, though. He was probably just as scared as she was. At least 24 kids go through this every year, she reminded herself. Their families move on, they die, they get forgotten. It should be easy. I'd have a right to complain, except for the frequency of it. If we kill this guy, nobody will remember him. Maybe his family, but they'll die out, and we'll all die out, and the earth with rise anew. Or be destroyed. Or something. I'll remember, but I'll probabaly die later on, and it won't matter. None of us really matter, but maybe we have to matter because of that. We have so little time, and so little affect. Do we use what we have to make our lives count as much as they can or give up and do whatever we want?

Auralee shook her head. She'd gotten way off track. Don't have to worry about that right now, not really. Just have to figure out how I can live with myself if we kill this kid. Not just because otherwise the Gamemakers won't let us out, but because obviously Leon's already ready for it. Or he thinks he is. His mirror rant would signify otherwise. He's willing, though, so there's already no chance for a trio of allies. I don't know this kid. He could be a jerk. At last Leon seems like a decent guy, and honestly, he's the closest thing I have to a friend right now. Closest thing to loyalty. I'd rather kill someone anonymous. Well, I'd rather not kill anyone. I shouldn't be thinking so simply about this, but I have to do something. I can't just keep standing here like a dazed rabbit. Auralee took a deep inhale of breath, imagining it filled her whole body up with courage and tucked her humanity deep under the corners of her skin so she wouldn't lose it in the coming battle. She took a final glance at her reflection, then pulled out the knife she'd found in her supplies earlier. That's symbolic, isn't it? From innocence - a toy, no less, a thing controlled and played with, a fake replica of a real thing - to murder. I guess you can explicate anything.

"That's a sign," she said quietly, referring to Leon's request. "So is being part of a game where the objective is literally to kill everyone else to survive." The words felt sharp and foreign in Auralee's mouth, and they left a bitter taste which she hoped wouldn't last. She was counting on the odd snappy tone of her voice as a result of her tumultuous mental state, not a sign that she was changing as a person. She muttered an apology and caught a glance of her reflection in the knife, as if there weren't enough mirrors already. Auralee looked away, unwilling to see herself reflected in something that would soon be used for attack with intent of murder. As she shifted her weight to her back leg to prepare to thrust forward, a song came to her mind. It was from a vastly different vein than the one they'd sung before, being a song that her mother used to sing to her when she was little and death valley wasn't exactly the stuff of lullabies. She didn't want to associate the song with something this dark, but sh felt she needed the comfort, and maybe it would help ease the process. Besides, if she died, she would have wanted it to be the last song she sang. She didn't know whether Leon knew it or not, or if he wanted to join in or sing his own song, and she wasn't sure how well the meaning of the song applied to their situation, but it had meaning to her, and as she lunged forward at the new tribute with her knife, she opened her lips and started singing anyway. "Down by the river by the boats, where everybody goes to be alone, where you won't see any rising sun, down to the river we will run."


Attack to Lorcan. Don't own song lyrics.

Lorcan looked at the two tributes in front of him, they seemed to be fairly strong and capable. It also seemed that they were working together. The girl was the first one to launch an attack, Lorcan tried blocking it and stepped to the side. "Look, I dont want to fight." He stated, hoping to avoid a battle. He hoped they could be reasoned with, and that he wouldnt have to fight.

Leon looked behind him as he heard the sound of singing, seeing it was Auralee. He didn't know the words to what she was singing, so he let her have a solo and turned back as she attacked the boy. However, he managed to avoid her attack but didn't strike out himself. Instead, he said he didn't want to fight which got a chuckle out of Leon. "I'm sure none of us wanna fight. But hey, that's how we get out. And it's what the Capitol wants. And sorry to say, but it's clear here that someone's gotta go...I mean it bud, but I promise you I ain't mean." He winks with a smirk and swung his rubber chicken at the boy.

Auralee wanted to close her eyes, but she knew that would defeat the purpose of attacking. She wasn't much good to anyone with her eyes closed in this situation, having had use of them all her life. She was almost relieved that the boy blocked her attack and that Leon failed until she realized it meant she'd have to do this for even longer. Auralee took a deep breath. He hadn't attacked, which just made this worse, but Auralee figured if she was going to get emotional scarring anyway, she might as well get it over with. Or something. She couldn't help it. She'd always thought she was a good person, and she didn't want to kill anyone, but she was human and she wanted to survive. She sang more of her song under her breath to calm herself and tried to pretend she wasn't doing what she was doing as she slashed out at the boy again. "When by the water we drink to the dregs, look at the stones on the river bed. I can tell from your eyes, you've never been by the riverside." Auralee wanted to apologize, to offer him some explanation or at least vocally repent, but she didn't have any good explanations anyway, and if she started talking and stopped singing, she knew she'd probably cry. Auralee didn't want to cry. Once the dam was shattered, there was no telling what emotions might come flooding through, and soon her vision would be obscured and she'd be distracted and distraught and and she'd be picked off like a sick antelope.

Lorcan had spent many years training for this, but now that the moment had arrived something was different. He didnt feel like fighting, the games were a cruel and evil thing made up by even crueler and evil people. He really wanted to fight back, he wanted to live. But somehow the will he once had, the man he had once been was no longer the same. Lorcan watched as the girl took another swing at him, he felt the blade hit his body, piercing the flesh. And he stood there, not returning the favour.

Leon sighed as his attack missed, but watched as the boy let himself get it by Auralee. He raised an eyebrow and asked, "What's wrong? Surely you haven't lost use of your arms or legs. You still have the ability to go down swinging. Or you can be a coward. Your choice." Leon's face hardened as he whipped his rubber chicken at the opposing tribute, hoping he at least tried to stop his death from happening...if not, it was just murder. With everyone else he killed, they at least tried to get him away, but with this guy, he just gave up. That was no way to go. If you were going to die in the games, you should do it while trying to get out.

SORRY FINALS OVER NOW I POSSTTTTTTyaytyfornotkillingme<33

Auralee hummed the rest of the song to herself and otherwise refused to speak. She hardly looked at her opponent, and tried to convince herself that she was in some kind of trance, that she wasn't controlling her body, that she was floating above it and observing from afar. She knew she wasn't, but it helped her get past that crushing notion of what she was doing. She just wished the stupid kid would fight back, so she wouldn't feel quite as terrible, but she didn't want to use that to get mad at him, because as much as it hurt her to hurt him, she didn't want to convince herself that she wanted to attack him. As long as she knew she didn't want to kill him, she might be a murderer, but at least she was human. Auralee was lowering her standards as desperation increased, and though she didn't like it, she didn't know what else to do. She let her eyes soften their focus even though it would impede her view a bit and thus her attack accuracy and swiped at the other boy with the knife.

Sorry for taking so long.

Lorcan kept his guard up, as he knew they would keep attacking him. It was time for a different approach. The girls attack narrowly missed him, he could feel the air from the blade as it swung past him. He had his own weapon, and charged towards the girl. He aimed it for her chest and swung as hard as he could. "I guess if we cant work together, I'll have to try kill one of you." He stated.

Leon's chicken was again off target and he was getting tired of his terrible attacks. He was about to go for another one when he saw the opposing tribute lash out at Auralee. Instinctively, Leon rushed forward and tried to shove the boy away so he wouldn't hit the girl from district 6. After going for his shove, Leon flailed his rubber chicken at the boy once more, hoping for contact, and grinned saying, "Hey now...if you're gonna fight, at least be a gentleman and leave the poor girl alone." He laughed and looked back to Auralee, his grin diminishing to a normal smile as he nodded to her and then looked back to the enemy.

Block for Auralee, attack to Lorcan

Auralee had finished singing the song, but it was playing on loop in her head now. This was good, she decided. it would help drown out the stark reality that was plaguing her so. She couldn't hear Leon defend her, which was probably good, since she wouldn't have known whether to thank him or reprimand him, and she wasn't very good at reprimanding but she would have leaned towards that. She registered the other boy's attack on her though, which gave her a small sense of relief. At least now she wasn't fighting something that wasn't fighting back. It was easier to think of him like that, just a something, though it worried her a bit. Morality later, mortality now, she told herself as the song in her head reached the chorus again. She swung at the boy with her knife.
