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.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

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.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

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).

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

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).

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

Before they knew it they were in the Capitol. Peeta and Katniss could not help themselves and ran toward the windows of the train and just were mesmerised by all the colours and buildings (it was much more beautiful in real life). The train stops, people are surrounding the train and pointing at them. She take a step back while Peeta starts waving. They go into this building and Katniss gets handed of to some assistance s of the stylist. They then begin to wax every hair on Katniss’s body and the stylist walks in (he is different from the rest,with barely any makeup on). Katniss likes him. They then go and have lunch, chicken and pudding, katniss had never had this assortment. Cinna (the stylist) asked Katniss if she was afraid of fire and told her that the gown will be lit with flames but not real ones of course. A few hours later Katniss is dressed in an all black bodysuit with a long cape and a headpiece.
She then meets up with Peeta and he is dressed the same. They start watching all the other districts go on there little platforms and get transported by houses to the center building, everyone was so beautiful and gentle or fierce. Before they knew it it was Katniss’s and Peeta’s turn. They jumped on the platform and Cinna lit there headpieces and there clothes and they were off. People were shocked clapping and screaming with joy, no one was expecting district 12 to look so extravagant.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

Before they left with the horses pulling there chariot Cinna told them to hold hands so they  did and Katniss even started blowing kisses.When they made it to the center circle a small thin man with white hair (the president) gave a speech and they went back.
As soon as they got back octavia another stylist blew the flames out with an extinguisher.
Katniss was expecting to get burnt but did not to her amazement. By the time they we not on fire Katniss let go of Peeta’s hand and they had to massage their own hands from holding them so tight.
The next morning Katniss wakes up and there are clothes laid out for her. She puts them on and goes to the dining room. She sees that Peeta is wearing the same thing put doesn’t care because that’s what their playing up. Today was training day and testing to see what you get as your score, the scores range from 1-12. Peeta and Katniss ate a hearty breakfast and went to the training center. All the other tributes were there. At once the career tributes started showing off how good they were at things, like throwing knifes, beating dummies and other things. Haymitch told Katniss and Peeta to not show off tell there testing. Peeta and Katniss started going to all the different activities together, like how to make a fire, how to make a trap, camouflage and other things that weren’t their speciality.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

After lunch the tributes were put in a room and were called upon one by on district be district.
When it was finally Katniss’s turn the game masters who would give you a score were just eating and chatting. Katniss walked up grabbed a bow and shot but it missed completely because she wasn’t used to it. After Katniss shot really well the game masters stopped looking and didn’t care because she missed the first one. Katniss was so mad that they were just eating and laughing. She saw a roasted pig come into the room and she looked at it and shot the apple out of its mouth and against the wall. All of them turned in disbelief, Katniss bowed and said thank you for your consideration and left before she got dismissed. After she realised what she had just done she was mortified. Katniss ran to her room and slammed her door, Haymitch and Effie knocked on her door but Katniss just screamed for them to go away.
After a while  Effie told Katniss it was time to eat and she decided that she might as well.
Everyone that katniss met in the capitol was there her stylists and effie and Haymitch and also Peeta. Haymitch asked her what she did so badly and Katniss told them everyone stopped eating but then Haymitch said that maybe that has a good thing. After supper they went to the living room to watch their scores. At the very end it was katniss and she got the highest score 11! ( I was not thinking she would get an 11 maybe at most a 7 but 11 wow) Then it was Peeta and he got an 8.
When it said that Katniss got an 11 everyone clapped and laughed and cheered. Effie was very proud and so was Haymitch. Katniss could not believe it herself.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

Katniss then went to her room and went to bed, the next morning she woke up and heard Peeta and Haymitch talking. She asked them what it was about and Haymitch told her that  she was going to spend 2 hours with Effie and 2 hours with him, (I thought the same thing as author because what could Effie do with Katniss for 2 hours) Katniss was then thrown to Effie first. Right away she was put into high heels, Effie told her they were going to have interviews tonight. (It was very amusing to read Katniss struggling to stand in high heels) Katniss was very mad by the end of it and saw that Peeta had a fun time with Haymitch and thought that maybe she would have fun too. She sat down with Haymitch and he tried to make her seem funny, arrogant, sexy, cute, ect. But Katniss couldn’t  do it Haymitch said that she was like a dead slug because she had no emotion. My the end of it Haymitch was drunk and Katniss had no idea what she was going to do for the interview (It was kind of funny). After that mess Katniss then went with Cinna to put in her outfit. Cinna is so cool and nice, he told Katniss to close her eyes and she did he then slid her in a beautiful gown. It had jewels all over it and when Katniss spun fake flames would engulf her. She looked amazing. That evening the interviews started, first district 1 then district 2 and the rest. Then it was Katniss’s turn, she walked up on stage and sat down everyone was stunned by her beauty in the dress. The the interviewer started asking her questions. Katniss was nice and smiled but there was nothing special about her. She then saw Cinna telling her to spin so she did and everyone was shocked and clapped, Katniss then found herself giggling which she has not done since she was very very young (which is really sad if you ask me). Then it was peeta’s turn. He walked up and he was charming funny and really nice. But then he mentioned he had a crush and that it was Katniss. Katniss was shocked and she blushed and looked down. After it was done she pushed Peeta in the elevator and he fell and broke  a pot which led to him cutting his hand. The doors opened and Effie and Haymitch saw Peeta on the ground. He stood up and Katniss was mad but Haymitch then explained to her that it was a gig to make her look better, the star crossed lovers. He told her that’s how she was going to get sponsors. Katniss felt bad bad said sorry to Peeta. Peeta said it was fine but it was technically illegal but he wouldn't say anything.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

That night Katniss couldn’t sleep because the games were the next day. She went to bed and the next day she went up early and they went to the training center where Cinna dressed her in the clothes everyone would be wearing. He then sneaked in her Mockingjay pin. They rode a train and the only thing keeping Katniss sane was the view of everything down below. Then everything went black and Katniss thought to herself maybe it was because they were close to the arena. They then went underground and Katniss waited she was then in a tube and was on her way up to the arena. When she got up she was at the arena. It was crazy I would die right away. Katniss was torn she knew she was supposed to run from the other and find a water source but from where she was there was a lake and weapons,food and water right in the middle The ringer rang and she hesitated missing he time to go to the pit she ran anyway. Sh found this orange pack and grabbed and ran a girl through a knife at Katniss but it went to her bag (that’s good for katniss because now she has a knife). She ran and foe the next days she was looking for water, right before the thirst got her she found a little pond and was good. She found in her orange pack a black sleeping bag weird sunglasses dried beef and crackers, she also had a water bottle that was empty and a purifier. At night Katniss would climb a tree and sleep there. All of a sudden she felt warmth. Then she realized that there was a giant wall of fire chasing her.  Katniss ran grabbed her stuff and was running for her life. She burned her calf and hands and found a pond she dipped her calf in and couldn’t take it out because it felt so good. She then heard tributes come and she ran to a tree and had to climb it. It was ruff and hard but she made it. She then heard Peeta’s voice and almost fell out of the tree.  He said that she would have to come down sometime so they they just took camp.  Katniss then saw Rue in the trees and Rue pointed at a nest up above her. Katniss then decided to cut the nest of the tree. She was worried I mean I would be too, I actually have a fear of wasps that really bad, but I don’t care I hope they get extirpated here. Katniss waited till the anthem went and said all the people that died that day. She started cutting and on the way three stung her ( they aren’t normal wasps there stings can cause death if there’s too many and can cause hallucinations) Katniss kept going till it fell and saw all the wasps go for the people down below.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

One girl died from the stings and once the wasps cleared Katniss fell down the tree and ran away well tripping and hitting herself against trees. Before she ran she just laid down by the water because it felt nice and she was hallucinating. She then saw Peeta come back and he told her to run so she did and she to shelter in this little hole she found. She was going crazy she thought there were ants crawling all over her and in her thoughts they reached her eyes and she blacked out. Few days passed and she woke up. Her bones were hurting and everything else.
She got up and looked for water she found a lake and took a bath she then went hunting and got some meat. She then saw rue as she was cooking her meat. Rue walked up to her slowly. Katniss said that she wouldn’t hurt her. Rue was holding leaves and a little pack with nuts and berries in them. Rue asked Katniss if she could have some meat as well. Obviously Katniss said yes and Rue sat down and they ate some meat together. Katniss said that Rue could have the last piece of meat. Before they started eating Rue chewed up the leaves that were in her hands and spit some on Katniss’s stings. Katniss was feeling so much better. Katniss then asked Rue if they were medicinal leaves for stings and such, Rue nodded. Katniss and Rue then made a plan to try and destroy the careers food stash. They built three fires and Rue told Katniss where a good place to spy on them and Rue would light the fires. Katniss then climbed the tree Rue told her to, She was completely covered by bush but she had a clear shot of the careers.She then saw them pointing towards the sky because Rue lit the first fire. They then were deciding whether to bring the boy who was guarding the stash or not. The boy that was guarding the stash then said that it doesn’t matter because everything was activated. Katniss had no idea what they were talking about (neither did I). 30 minutes later Katniss was still trying to come up with a plan. She then saw fox faced girl do a little hop and tip toe around the ground towards the big pile of food and materials. She then saw the girl almost fall and she made a little squeal before she hit the ground but she only grabbed a little food here and there. ( It’s bombed from underneath the ground).  Katniss knew it. She then moved closer to the pile and started shooting at a bag of apples then on the third arrow the bag burst open and the apples fell one by one, then giant explosions started to happen I sure wish I could have saw that but obviously not too close. Katniss then was shot back and her ear was bleeding she couldn’t walk but she crawled to a bush and as soon as she did that the careers came back.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

She then took cover in a little hole by a tree. She then sleeped and she woke up but her ear was ringing but she could hear now. Katniss then went to a little pond and washed off the dirt and blood, she then went to meet up with Rue but she was nowhere to be seen. A whole day passed and in the morning she heard a little girl scream. She knew it was Rue and she started yelling for her Rue then started saying Katniss. Katniss then came on time right when a guy impaled her with a spear. She shot on arrow right through his neck.
But it was too late Rue was already in a net and had a spear through her. No medicine could save her. Katniss then sang a song to Rue and Rue made Katniss promise that she would win then Rue died but Katniss saw some flowers and covered Rue with them she looked beautiful.
The machine with the claws then took Rue and the guy Katniss killed. Katniss then went to a tree and just got ready for bed, then a parachute came down with bread in the container.
Katniss knew this was from district 11 Rue’s district. Katniss said aloud thank you and went to bed. That night the anthem went on as usual and then an announcement went on, It said and this completely surprised me  If both people from one district become allies they both can win. Katniss then was overcame by stupidity and called out for Peeta. She immediately covered her  mouth. But she then thought that tomorrow she would go looking for him for Peeta. Even though Cato said that he cut him but on the pictures that show every night his wasn’t there.
Katniss knew she had to team up with Peeta. It would be a disgrace and bad if she didn’t, Katniss was also not to keen on killing people but this was going to help. She knew the next morning she was going to go look for him.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

Katniss woke up and started looking for Peeta. She decided she was going to follow the stream.
She went through terrains and felt that maybe he wouldn’t have gotten this far. All of a sudden something grabs her foot and says her name (I was not expecting that, but Peeta is really good at camouflage). Peeta opens his eyes he’s very weak Katniss struggles a lot trying to get him up and cleaned up. The mud and grass he covered himself in was hard to get off in Katniss’s eyes  She took his shirt and jacket off and started taken care of the burn on his chest and the wasp stings he had, she then took off his pants and examined his wound that Cato made it was from his thigh and down to his knee area. It was awful thought Katniss she was not good with stuff like that and wasn’t very prepared for it. But she put on a face like nothing happened and pressed a bunch of the leaves on it. (Which is really smart, I wouldn’t have thought of that).
She then had to empty buckets of puss that came out of Peeta’s leg, which is so gross I would’ve definitely thrown up. She then wrapped it up and tried to help Peeta to go to a cave that was about 20 miles away. It was hard to read because I just had a feeling that he would die.
They got to the cave and Katniss put him in her sleeping bag and then Haymitch sent them a bowl of soup. The next day Peeta’s wound was getting worse and I knew he was going to die soon. But that night the anthem came on but this time they said that there was going to be a backpack with your district on it filled with whatever they desperately needed. Peeta said that Katniss couldn’t go but I knew she would. She lied and she told herself at dawn she was going to grab her backpack.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

She didn't know what to do, but well she was outside a parachute came down with sleeping syrup. Katniss knew that Haymitch had done it this way she could sneak out well Peeta would be sleeping. She mashed up some berries and mint leaves and put the syrup in. Katniss started feeding it to Peeta and Peeta knew but Katniss shoved one last bite in his mouth. Peeta fell asleep. At dawn Katniss got up and grabbed peeta's coat and Rue's second pair of socks then her weapons. She went outside and it was freezing cold. It was so dark she was almost scared by the beautiful plants that are in the day. She kept walking. Then she found a bush where the announcer told them the feast was happening. Katniss hid in the bush waiting. She then saw fox face run out and grab her back pack, Katniss saw the numbers written on the packs and saw 12 on a little orange pack. Katniss started running then Cato's partner pined her down Katniss knew this wasn't good , I mean I would just die of fear. The girl was about to stab Katniss when Thresh, a guy from the same district as Rue came and tore the girl off of Katniss he then started pounding the girls head with a rock she was dead and Katniss then heard Cato yelling for her. Katniss knew she was going to die, Thresh was 5 times her size he was huge and strong but he just said that since she was helping Rue he was letting her off this time. Katniss then saw Cato running towards Thresh since he stole their pack too. Katniss grabbed the little pack and ran back to the cave not knowing if Cato was going to go for her or not. Katniss got back to the cave, thank gosh that was intense. She found Peeta and he was just laying down but got up and Katniss fell unconscious. He saw that Katniss got her forehead cut by Cato's partner. She then woke up with her head bandaged and before she fell last night she opened the pack and and injected the needle in Peeta's fore arm.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

Katniss felt dizzy and her head was hurting a lot, I mean if that was me I probably would not have woken up. She got up and almost right away went to look at Peeta’s leg but was son as she turned around she noticed that he had already gotten up and was waiting for her so they could eat. Katniss divided the little food equally and they chowed it down. Katniss then said that they would go hunting. I personally have no idea how to hunt, I would actually die in the first 5 minutes. They went outside but Katniss was in no condition to hunt and beside it was way to cold anyways. They went back in there cave and when Katniss thought to herself that if they needed food they would have to act for it, Katniss then kissed Peeta and she just thought to herself that she was so hungry. She then turned around she saw a parachute! She picked it up and it was huge there was bread, cream cheese ,apples, soup and more. They laid out the food and began to feast.  Even I wish I had that much food on the daily.

The next couple of days were quiet, which is not that good if you ask me. Finally Katniss decided to go hunting because they were running out of food. Peeta’s leg was doing good. So they started going out of the cave and walking. I was really worried because Peeta’s leg was making lots of sound according to Katniss. By the end of it they seperated to find food.  Which is good and bad. It’s ironic because Peeta thinks he can defend himself against Cato but yet is weaker than Katniss. Katniss went and shot two rabbits and a fat squirrel. When she came back Peeta was not there. Peeta even took some cheese that was left. Katniss was yelling for Peeta, which is really stupid. Finally Peeta came back with his arms filled with night-lock berries. HE dropped them because Katniss was yelling at him, I mean he did deserve it. They then heard a cannon go off, which means someone has died. They then saw a clay pick up Fox face. Katniss realised that Peeta accidentally killed her with the berries.

Re: The Hunger games By:Collins

They then started cooking the rabbits. Katniss is really smart because she knew that Cato would know where they are but they just “killed” foxface. She was right he never came all night.
They went back to their cave and slept. Katniss slept till late afternoon and knew this was going to be the day that the game makers were going to make her Peeta and Cato to meet up. She got up and went out of the cave. She realised that all the water from the river was gone. I knew the game makers were going to make Katniss, Peeta and Cato meet up somehow. It wasn’t what I thought it would be, because Katniss was really calm and cool and basically ready to face Cato. I was hoping that maybe the lake by the place where all the tributes started was going to have water, because it’s not pretty to hear the author describe someone dehydrating. As I told before in the beginning Katniss was dehydrating but thankfully survived. They finally got to the lake  where everything started. First they filled up their water bottles, which is really important then they waited. I was so not expecting this, Cato was screaming and running and the way the author described him was just trying to catch us on what was about to happen. They said that his face was red and looked like he had been running for a while. Katniss was unsure is he was alright. She then was really confused when he just ran right past her and Peeta. Then all of a sudden dogs came, vicious dogs that were eerie looking and acting kind of human like. I knew the game makers were going to push them all together somehow, but not this way!
Cato was smart and ran up the golden horn where all the supplies where at in the beginning. Katniss completely ran for her life, She then realised when she was about to go on the horn that she left Peeta behind. It was not good because when she looked back she saw that Peeta was limping/running and that the dogs were biting at his ankles almost catching him.
