((I know this is mostly copy pasted and it's not the best, but we're behind schedule, and I'm hoping to finish these before I go on vacation. Next post will be completely original, I promise! ))
16th Annual Hunger Games
District 8 Reaping
Date: September 8th ADD
The sun welcomed Xander as he stepped off the train. Oh, he just knew that today was going to be a good day! He thought about the previous Reaping. Each had gone well in his opinion! This year was going to be so a tough competition! He along with all of his colleges and friends back into the Capitols would be biting their nails this year, that was for sure! He hadn't picked a favorite yet, but that was all in due time. Xander was rather a fan of the underdogs. He LOVED watching the Games and the less experienced get changed in the games. They would turn, get strong and would be the most entrapping to watch. Then again, seeing a Career completely dominate was also something that he found joy in watching. Oh - any win was well anticipated and wonderful to watch! He was just super excited this year. Oh, bless his heart, he was this excited every year! But the Games were so close!
Xander looked around at his crew. He was kind of chipper that Snow wasn't here today. The publicity was great, but that fellow could be a downer at times. Never saying much. The poor chap. But no matter! Today was the day! And it was the day for another 4 days! Wasn't it great! Though tiredness weighed on Xander's eyelids, he barely needed a cup of coffee to be just as excited and awake as before. He waved at passersby on the street. Though, there weren't many. Most were still in their houses fixing up their young ones, relatives, or just sleeping in, taking the day off as an advantage. Few smiled at Xander, but he didn't care. There was always a bit of animosity in these later Districts, they hadn't yet realized how wonderful the Games were for them, poor souls!
As the members of the District started filing in, camera men came up to Xander interviewing him. He was used to this routine, it was getting difficult after a while to say different things. He saw someone commenting on the weather. Great weather for a Reaping, that was sure!
And finally, it was time to begin! Xander took in a deep breath. The air smelled a lot worse than his home, and he couldn't help but feel sympathy for the District. "Gooood morning, District Eight! And welcome, your 16th annual Hunger Games is beginning! You are getting your chance to have a talented young girl and boy to come along with us and participate in the Hunger Games! It's quite an honor! So, good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!""Girl's first, then!"
He practically jumped and plucked a slip of paper out of the top of the bowl.
Made by the most talented Monica/Fayer! Thanks everyone who voted for me! <3
