Topic: The Hunger games By:Collins

Katniss wakes up to the cold of her bedroom, looking for Prim but realizes she must have went to sleep with her mother. At first I didn’t realize but Prim and Katniss sleep together because they are sisters.  Katniss then gets up and walk towards her mother prime sleeping. She then sees the wretched cat at the end of their knees. When Prim was only a young-in she brought that cat home and Katniss tried to drown it in a bucket! I was surprised because in the movie it never showed that she tried to drown the damn cat. The cat had a pushed in nose and had an ear and a half. It as ugly. Katniss then decided to slip on her leather boots tuck her hair in a cap and leave, before she left Prim gave her goat cheese with basil leaves,only because it as the reaping. There was an electric fence surrounding District 12 (to keep out the animals). No one was supposed to cross it, but Katniss could hear the hum if it was on or off. So she slid on her belly and went under and ran into the forest. Katniss is very brave because most of the people would never do that even if they had a hunting knife. But Katniss had a few bows hidden in the forest, that her father made. Katniss’s father died in a coal explosion and was blown to bits.

Katniss made sure to cover them in water proof covers and hid them carefully.
Katniss and Gale are great friends and I personally think they would be great together but you know how it is.
Katniss usually only has a smile on her face when she goes hunting with Gale. Katniss ran toward the place where Gale and her usually meet. She then saw that Gale had bread! Katniss was overjoyed she was not expecting bread that this good quality,
he must have been up since the crack of dawn trading for that. She then pulled out her goat cheese that Prim gave her and Gale and Katniss covered the bread with it and put basil on top of there slices.

Katniss and Gale were talking then out if nowhere Gale said what if they ran away, Katniss knew that couldn't happen because she had to take care of prim and her mom,plus Gale has to take care of his brothers and sisters and parent.
Katniss & Gale then got up to get ready for the reaping. Katniss got  home and Prim and her mother were ready in there pretty dresses. Katniss went to her bedroom and realized that her mom had laid out a dress for her (one of her precious dresses,finally her mom actually did something for once). Katniss was not expecting that usually she wears her old dress and fights with her mom so I guess it was progress. All three of them then went to the town square where the reaping happens. Prim and Katniss got separated into age groups and everything got all crowded and tight. (The town square is actually pretty big but with 8000 people not so much).

Then Effie trinket (the speaker that comes every year to announce the tributes) came up on the stage and the Mayor should the video that he shows every year about how the 13 districts united together and rebelled against the Capital and how that led up to district 13 being obliterated, and that now the hunger games is a repayment and so on.
The Mayor then gave a speech and Effie trinket then gave her traditional speech”May the odds be ever in your favor” and she dipped her hand in the girls glass bowl first because ladies first as she puts it, she pulled the first one she touched and read it aloud,Prim everdeen! (what the heck,you would think it would be Katniss but Prim) Katniss couldn’t breath her world just flashed her by. She couldn’t talk but before Prim set foot on the stage she screamed no and ran towards her,people were moving for Katniss. Then all of a sudden Katniss said that she would volunteer as tribute.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

Since no one ever volunteers the rules were a bit rusty, Effie looked at the mayor and the mayor gave her look saying whatever let’s do it. So Effie said that Katniss is the tribute, as soon as she said that Prim screamed no and Gale had to peel her off Katniss as she was screaming and kicking. Katniss stepped up on stage and made sure she didn’t look in distress or cry because she did not want the other tributes to make her an easy target (which is really smart if you ask me). She stood on stage and waited for Effie to call out the boy’s name. Peeta Mellark Effie says, Katniss was thinking to herself no not him anybody but him. Effie then asked if there were any volunteers but no one stood up. Peeta walked slowly up the stage and you could see in his eyes how scared he was.
Then Haymitch ( the only tribute who won,that's still alive) staggered on stage with a stench of alcohol and he hugged Effie, who was mortified and then he fainted and fell off the stage. Peacekeepers then took them into the justice building and they rode to two little houses. Katniss had never seen such beauty in a house before she was bewildered. There were satin pillows and amazing decor in the house it was beautiful. She felt like crying but didn’t so she just buried her head in the satin pillows. Soon Her mother and Prim came in to say their goodbye’s. They all hugged each other and Katniss told her mother that she has to take care of Prim no matter what, and that she could not go back to her numb state not again. Before they left she told them that she loved them. Then Gale came in she ran towards him and hugged him. She could feel his warmth and his heart beating. Katniss never really hugged Gale before but this  felt right they were good friends.
Peeta’s dad came in and gave Katniss cookies and told her he would keep an eye out for Prim.
The Peacekeepers then moved them to a train.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

Both Peeta and Katniss stepped on the train with cameras following them everywhere, Katniss could see that Peeta was crying and thought maybe he was putting on a show, tricking the other tributes. Effie was waiting inside the train and told them where their rooms were. In Katniss’s room there was a big bed with silk sheets and a huge closet. Katniss went to take a shower (which she had never done before) and then put on a different outfit with a green top.
She then went to the main room which was the dining room. Her eyes were opened so wide she could not believe how much food there was. Peeta and Katniss sat down and started eating so quickly. Effie said that they were much better then last years,because lat years wouldn’t even hold their cutlery. After that comment Katniss was ticked off and for the rest of the meal ate with her hands. Katniss then went to bed and what felt like 2 minutes Effie cam in and told her to get up. Katniss got and put the green clothes back on since they weren’t that dirty. She went to the dining room and got some orange juice and rolls and pastries galore. She sat down and started eating, Haymitch cam in not drunk but not sober. He sat down and started eating. Katniss and Peeta then made an agreement with Haymitch and that he would help them(since he is all the got). Katniss was mad before the agreement and decided that she wanted to show off her knife skills since Haymitch asked what she could do and she picked up a knife and threw, it
landed right in between two panels (making her look better than she actually is).
