'My Little Canary' Chapter 3Six years laterWiress was fed up with people saying how sorry they were. It was all they had done ever since Beetee's name was called, that and tell her she'd get through it.But he's coming back to me, she wanted to scream at them. Don't you understand? He promised! She'd cried so much that first night she was sitting here now, waiting for the Games to begin, completely dry-eyed, something she never thought she'd be. The Arena looked quite good; it was a mountain range with a forest off to the left and the ocean to the right. The ocean. Wiress had never seen the ocean before.There he was. Rising up on the same platform she'd risen from six years before. They'd been so close, so close to forever. Now they were going to lose it.Wiress was alone, crouching on the floor of her sleek, white, chrome Victor's Village house, her eyes glued to the television. Her mother had left to watch on the big screen in the square, uncomfortable and awkward around her distressed daughter.'He's coming
'I'll never let you go' Chapter 10CloveJealous. How dare he? That boy thought the whole of Panem revolved around him, I thought, angrily stabbing the pancake on my plate.

The girl was really hot. Even as we watched her sashay her way up to the platform in her sparkly pink dress, I could feel the saliva building up inside my mouth. I swallowed it quickly. The other Districts passed by, we weren't interested in many of them.

I doubted we'd team up with either of them. 11 offered a colossus of a boy, more of a man really, and a tiny, waif of a girl with dark skin and curly hair. I glanced at Clove. She had a weakness for children, and I was worried about how she'd cope having to kill such
