The Hunger Games (Cinna's point of view) Part Six

November 3, 2020


The Capitol people will be desperately awaiting the tributes. They would fall in love with a handsome fellow or cheer on a fierce fighter and Crecer Flickerman with his grin would always win the crowd over. 
I can feel her emotions as I pat over the dress to smooth the creases around her stomach. "Just be yourself" I whisper in a gentle voice. Her eyes come into focus as she takes in what I said.
"Cinna, I don't know if I can do this," She replies, and her eyes shiver with nervousness. 
"When you answer the questions pretend you're answering them to a friend," I say and move the tiny piece of her hair to its normal place. "I'll be on the podium. Direct your answers to me."


I take a seat right beside Haymitch and I can already tell he's ready for a drink. After a few moments, Portia takes a seat next to me and I greet her with a smile. 
"Cinna, how in the world are you so calm?" She asks and I look down to see her fingers trembling in her lap.
"I can tell it's going to be fine" I reassure her taking her shaking hand in mine.
"And I've got a trick up my sleeve" Haymitch adds in a whisper. We both turn our heads to see his smirk and before I can ask Crecer starts the show. I gaze at Haymitch for a bit longer, but instead of an explanation, I receive a wink.

Each tribute gets through their 3 minutes and only two stands out to me. She was from District's 5 and her orange hair plus the mint blue dress captured a sharp combination. The second was Rue the name as sweet and gentle as the girl who sat on stage. Her age only 12. She reminded me of Primrose. 


I see Katniss come onto the stage and my eyes catch hers. She answers each question so freely and I almost see a smile break from Haymitch. When it's time for her to spin I hear the audience gasp and I know I made the right choice. The fire mixes so well with the red cloth, bringing the fire alive. Girl on fire I think to myself once again. 

I don't like how I wrote this:\ (ughhhh as you might have noticed I don't have self-confidence in my work at all!!)
I hope you enjoy tho! :)

    The opening is really good, how gullible and fickle the crowd is.
    'I can already tell he's ready for a drink' XD That's Haymitch's speciality.
    Ah! Rue! <33

    Girrrlllll on FIRE! :D
    Hey Lata, don't think like that. TRUST yourself! You're doing good... Just keep the hard work and it will become great! :D
    And thank you so much for the shout out in your message. :)

    PS: I think the name's Caesar Flickerman. Did you write Crecer on purpose?
