This is a fanfic series based off of The Hunger Games during the time before of when Prim gets chosen for the Games.
I pull the arrow back on its string and fling it at the turkey. The bird quaked, trying to get away. I flung another arrow that shot right into the birds chest. It fell with a thump. I ran over to it and picked it up by its feet. "Gale? Hows your prey?" "The snares are doing good." Gale answers, fixing up another trap. We already have two turkeys,
three squirrel, and a rabbit that must've ran into one of Gales traps. I throw the turkey into the pile and wash my arrows in my fathers small water pond. Gale collects a hummingbird from a snare along with a small deer. "We got a lot of prey to take to the Hob. Thats for sure." Gale says. "Yeah. Greasy Sae will be pleased."
"You know, Kitty. I havent seen you this happy for a long time." Gale murmurs, putting all the prey in my game bag. "Maybe its because I am in the woods." I answer. "Yes but . . . maybe its because your doing it with me. " he replies. I feel my cheeks flush.
"I dont think so. Maybe your right and its something else." I say, trying to distract him. He is right though. Being with Gale hunting in the woods always makes me feel alive. Something changed though and I think I know what it is. "Oh." Gale says, handing me my game bag and grabbing the bow and arrows and placing them under the log.
"Well . . . we have to go." I replie. Gale nods and cleans the place up. "Remember the Games ceremony is coming up?" Gale asks, following me to the fence. "Yeah. What about it?" "We have to be ready and no matter what happens we stick together. Right?" he says, grabbing my wrist.
"Yes . . ." I murmur, actually frightened. Whatever Gale is coming up with it is not good. Gale lets out a breath and releases my wrist. I rub my wrist with my thumb of my left hand and studie Gale. He seems frustrated and scared. His face pale with loss of color. "I . . ." I want to ask him something but I know Gale wont give me the answer.
Both me and him crawl back under the fence which is off for right now, and we make our way over to the Hob-in other words, a black market. I give Greasy Sae some meat and she gives me some bread in exchange. I smile slightly and make my way over to the medical section. I trade some bird for some bandages and ointment for my Mother. I put them in my bag, getting some candy for Prim.
I need to find out what Gale is into to, whether he likes it or not.
