The only emotion Donta had really been able to manage since saying his goodbyes to his family after the reaping was shock; How could this even have happened to him? He was only twelve. His five older sisters had refused to let him take out a single tessarae, so his name was only entered in the reaping once. Yet here he was, standing in a large gymnasium surrounded by 23 older kids so they could all learn fun new ways to kill each other. The odds clearly were not in Donta’s favor.

However, as the small boy looked around the training center at the various weapons and saw all the older tributes up close, he finally registered a new emotion: crippling fear. There was a 99.99% chance that Donta would be dead within a week. The 12 year old was the youngest, smallest, and most likely the weakest contestant in the Games. The only things he knew how to do were identify plants and climb trees, and unless the arena was a giant replica of the orchards of District 11, these skills would be of virtually no use to him. Heck, even if the arena WAS a replica of the orchards, he still wouldn’t be very useful. Maybe he could just find a nice tree to hide in at the beginning of the games and wait for the others to kill each other-oh gosh. Donta began to tremble as it sunk in that he was really, truly going to be a part of these games. He was going to have to watch people die. HE was going to die. No. He wasn’t. If he gave up hope now, Donta knew there would be no chance at all he would get home to his mother and sisters. He had promised them he would try his best, and even though it was obvious they all knew it was useless, he would keep his promise.

Donta took a deep breath-it would do no good to start crying in the middle of training-and forced himself to walk over to a station, making sure to avoid those with weapons or careers. He found himself at the edible plants station, which suited Donta just fine. Yes, he already knew quite a bit about plants and it was important for him to learn something new while he was here, but there had to be plenty of plants he didn’t already know about. Plus, this plant station reminded him ever so slightly of home. The home he would never see again.

Donta quickly pushed that thought to the back of his mind, but the thought of home made Donta realize just how alone he was here. He didn’t have his sisters to protect him (not that that had worked out very well), and there was no way anybody would ever want to team up with a puny, useless twelve year old. His district partner had been Donta's only hope, but he had never even spoken the the girl before the reaping, so he didn't even have a friendly face here with him. But maybe that was for the best? The young boy let out a small sigh before timidly introducing himself to the instructor and pointing out the various plants he could already identify. As he did so, Donta felt a very small bit of his confidence returning; maybe he wasn’t so useless after all. Unfortunately, he chose that moment to catch sight of an extremely violent career impaling a dummy, and quickly turned his attention back to his plants wondering once again how he had ended up here.

Sadie stared at the different stations that were littered all around the room. She really shouldn't be too surprised that she was here. She had to give in her name for tessarae countless times. It was the only way that she had a chance of surviving another year. so when she had heard her name being called out she really shouldn't have felt a jolt of shock that made her tremble but she did. The realization that she might die in the next few days was just sinking in.

The only skill she had was being able to weild an axe pretty well. She was in no way brilliant at it. The only thing she had used it for was cutting down a few tress when her father was too sick to be able to do it himself.Contemplating her unlucky situation she wandered around the training centre sizing up her opponents. She was most worried about the Careers. They had trained for this their whole lives. How was she supposed to compete with that?

Turning towards the edible plant station she saw a little boy. He looked only 12 years old. This was the worst part of the games. Seeing a little boy or girl who was almost garunteed to be dead by the end of the Games. She might as well talk to him now. She might get a chance to again. She wanted to talk to him, to comfort him, even if only for a couple of minutes.

Walking up to the boy she put her hand on his shoulder. "Hello. My name is Sadie. What's yours?" she said, trying her best to sound as kind as possible.

Alex had entered his name in the tesserae but never thought he would be picked. He also didn't expect his brother to be picked either, but he couldn't let his brother die. But he realized, living in this messed up world, he should've let his brother die, so his brother would be free from the cruel world and be with God. Of course Alex had been thinking about that and now he felt selfish. Getting the easy way out was just well.............. easy.

Alex had been good with athletics, FreeRunning, Martial Arts, and melee weapons, such as staffs, swords, and shields. He could show he could get a perfect ten, just my finding a way to get out of the arena, but he wouldn't. He would just let the wind take him, but his instincts would get in the way and he would have to fight.

He had seen two kids, one looked like twelve and the other looked like his age, he hated that they would have kids die but he knew again it would be taking the easy way out.

"Hello." Alex told the kids, while Alex wielded a silver, arabian sword.
