First Day Of High School
Its the first day of high school. Im terrified. My older sister who has been high school before says its terrible and that all you ever learn about is the capitol. I hate the capitol. and now whats even worse is that im stuck listening all about them and their stupid ways of living life. I put on the scarlet school uniform layed on my bed. ''CLOVE!!'' shouts my mum. ''What?'' i say brushing my hair with my fingers. ''You have ten minutes before going to school!'' she shouted. ''Yeahh i no!'' i said shouting back. ''Come down and have your breakfast'' she said . ''Yeah im coming'' i say walking down the stairs. I used to have 2 sisters. i have 1 who is now moved to district 1 with her stupid boyfriend, but i had another sister. She was called Mayan. She was 16 when she was reaped. I still remember the day i stood in the crowd waiting for a girls name to be called but it was my sister who had to go. She was brilliant with swords and no one ever beat her scores in training. But when the games started she was doing very well but she died from these bird mutts. I couldnt watch the TV when my sister was dieing. i wanted to just jump in the TV and save her. i was only 5 then. I ate my breakfast in a slow way playing with the coco pops and swooshing them around. Mum says that today in school they will test us in p.e and see whos fit for the training center. All of my family in district 2 have been in the training center, so hopefully i can to. I look under the stairs and find the new shiny black shoes mum had brought me. I put them on and tied my laces. I grabbed my backpack and walked out the door. It was really warm outside. District 2 always has hot storms in January. It took me 2 minutes to walk to school. I stared at all these stupid kids pranking each other and spilling water on each others heads. I decided i would stay away from them. Then someone poked me really hard on my back, i turned around to see who it was. ''Hey clovey!'' shouted cato my best friend. Thank god he's here. I would be a loner if it wasnt for him. ''Hey'' i say hugging him. He looked Very smart in his scarlet uniform. I looked like an idiot in mine. ''Lets get to p.e then?'' he says smiling. ''Yeah good idea'' i say smiling. As i walk into the changing rooms, girls change. I lock myself up in a shower room and get changed in their. When im ready i open the door when a massive girl is standing right infront of me. ''OHH look who we have here! a new girl..'' laughed the massive girl. ''The names clove'' i say pushing the door wide open. ''Urgghh what a stupid name!'' laughed the girl. My face was turning red but i didnt want to start a fight so i tried to calm down. ''Whats your name?'' i say staring at her ugly dyed green hair. ''The names marrisa..'' she says staring at me. ''Well look puny girl move out of my way or i will make you move!'' shouted marrisa. I couldnt help it but i punched her right in the face sending her to the floor bleeding. The p.e teacher walked in and looked horrified. ''WHO DID THIS?'' she yelled. ''Me'' i say looking at marissa on the floor. ''Come to the p.e hall right away'' she yelled. i walked right behind her watching her high heels tap on the floor making a loud noise. ''Im sorry miss i didnt mean to'' i said. ''Shut up i dont care'' she says giving me an evil look. When i enter the p.e hall there is a massive P.e instructor shouting at cato. Great hes in the same trouble as me. ''Sir i have another'' says the teacher who found me. He looked at me. I didnt feel very comfortable when he was staring at me. ''Well, well, well'' he says walking around me. ''My name is Mr Muck and im choosing who comes to the training center to train for the hunger games.'' he says standing on a bench. ''As you know, The hunger games is near and we need some of you prepared so u can volunteer and hopefully win the games'' he says. ''So im in charge of who trains for the hunger games and i dont care if you dont want to go because at somepoint in your life you will probably get picked for the hunger games.'' he says pushing back his black hair. ''So i will be coming round and picking some of you who i think will have a chance of winning the games and bringing pride to our district, so get to work!'' he says yelling at all of us. I stare around the p.e hall and find loads of weapons! what? do they expect us to use them? okay im good with knifes but what if i accidently kill someone? oh who cares. i walk up to the knife station and pick up three knifes. There is 3 targets on the wall. i take a deep breath and chuck the knifes and they land right in the hearts. marrisa is staring at me and i can tell shes jealous. The p.e instructor looks impressed. i wonder if i will get a place????
