The 5th Quarter Quell - Chapter 3Chapter 3: Knifeand May the Odds be Ever in your Favor. Our escort says as an ending remark for the reaping. He grabs my arm and we enter the Justice Building. The doors slam shut. After a second of silence, he opens his mouth and starts to talk.I apologize for what I said a while ago. I thought it will add up a little entertainment. Turns out, not
He continues his speech for about five minutes while were walking but stops when we reach this huge, shiny metal door guarded by a Peacekeeper that I can still remember. Thats when I start paying attention.Anyway, Im your districts new escort Olive Viola. Go inside. Wait. Im going to tell the Peacekeepers outside to start letting visitors in. He makes sure I enter and then he leaves.As soon as I entered it, my eyes started to become teary. I feel pity on myself. Oh, how I wish it wasnt my slip over that thousands in District 10.

The 5th Quarter Quell- Chapter 2Chapter 2: UnluckyCock-a-doodle-do! The roaming rooster wakes my tired body up. I open my eyes lazily and I lie awake on the bed.

To my right is the wide corral where they keep our districts main industry: Livestock.Usually this corral is filled with hundreds of cows, not for today though. Just last week, dozens of cows started to die from some sort of disease that make them go crazy. Because of it, the ranchers are forced to transfer them to another for days.

How boring this pastures are without the cattle and how largely our lives depend on them. Sweat began soaking my plain white, unironed school uniform. Thirsty, thats what I am now.
