History

I was alone.
"Papa, papa please don't leave me..." I stood by his bed watching his rough hand brush my hair back. "L-Lena listen to me...you- you tell those people that you are strong..and you're not afraid." He muttered in silence. I clentched his hand, feeling the cold tear roll down my cheek. He struggled to place my mother's silver locket around my neck, she died when I was born. "You look just liker her..." He smiled slightly as his eyes closed. He passed away as it began to rain.
I inherited the small house, it wasn't much but it was near the ocean- the only place that kept me calm. I promised him that I would live so he could protect me, and I'd keep that promise as long as I could. I quickly learned how to hunt and spear fish, I never knew I could aim so well. Years past, and it was still the same. I was quiet and shut everyone out, forcing my mind to revolve around surviving alone. I grew up, making sure I would live for my father, Until I was reaped.
"Yes, our female tribute- Lena Cartwright!" The escort said on stage. "You tell those people that you are strong..and you're not afraid."The words echoed through my head as I stepped onto the stage, not showing any fear though I was screaming inside. I promised I would live, so I promise I'll try.

So begins...

I tapped my foot down against the floor. A nervous habit I guess. The desserts were piled up about a couple feet hight, and velvet sofas lined against the iron walls of the train. Fancy? No, more like a death trap. "Exciting isn't it?" The escort said bubbling over. I turned my head away, ussuring I didn't want to talk. I heard the petite footsteps walk off into another train cart. "Yes, very exciting..." I said rolling my eyes. The cheers of the Capitol's people overwhelmed me. I guess they also thought it also exciting.

The departure was quick, because I didn't have anyone to say goodbye to. I wasn't allowed really to bring any belongings, I would be showered with riches at any moment or killed in an istant- the only thing from home that I brought was my silver locket. On the way to the "fabulous" train, I was sitting in the car, looking out at the window watching everyone stare at us. The escort kept blabbing between me and the boy tribute...who I hadn't seen yet. I turned my head to get a glimpse of him. I didn't know his name, but I had seen him around the District before. His jaw was clenteched tightly and his eyes were closed, or at least I thought they were. I couldn't see anything beyond the bangs of his blonde hair. I turned to look back out at the window as we arrive to the train.
Desserts were piled high, and velvet sofas linded the edges of the train. The windows were edged with a soft curtain, and the table-cloths were white and fresh. I squirmed in my chair, I couldn't seem to get comfortable- it was just different than something I had ever seen before. I looked up to see the boy tribute sitting across fro me, looking around the train cart as I was. I placed my hand in front of him. I might as well get to know the person who might kill me- I felt like I hadn't opened my mouth for ages. "My- my name's Lena...what's yours?"

I looked up to see the girl tribute talking to me. "My- my name's Lena, what's yours?" She said awkwardly. I stared at her, she looked familiar, but I didn't care. I stood up and walked away from her. I felt a singe of guilt, but I felt like I was already dead.

(Departure)
My parents stood there at the doorway. They had three minutes to say goodbye, it felt like three seconds. I held the lucky coin in my hand, hoping a wonderful event would happen to stop this. There was no lucky event. My father took my hand as Nick stood next to me, shaking like crazy. "Don't go. Don't go or i'll be mad when you come home." Nick said softly. "Sorry Nick, you won't have a chance to be mad at me cause' I'll be dead." I replied.

"Don't you dare talk like that!" My mother yelled.

"What's the point mom! God!" I kicked the lamp across from, making the peace keepers come in.

"Times up." The both said.

"Go to Hell...go to Hell!" Dad screamed at them. And they were gone. Just like that.

I just sat there. Did I do something wrong? I couldn't have... I probably did. I always did something wrong. I looked out of the window to see the Capitol's people yelling and screaming. It was like a colorful crowd of paint. Here we go.

I took a step off of the train. I was greeted with screaming citizens and colorful bursts of smiles. I started to become overwhelmed and backed away into the train's door. I felt a firm grip take my wrist.

"I'm sorry about earlier Lena...I wanted to apologize-I was a little...scared. Looks like you are too." Seth whispered softly. I nodded slightly.

"Stay close to me...your the only part of District 4 I have..." I smiled slightly. He smiled back as we walked next to each other, near the large palace we would stay in. It had begun. I stopped in the doorway as I heard the slight creak of avoxs that were shutting the gigantic steal doors. My eyes wandered around the place. A spiral stair case was at my left, while an oddly shaped table stood in front of me with a single bowl of flowers sitting in the center. Furry chairs were discarded around the room and a TV was running into the next room. Pure royalty.

"I don't think it's anything special." Seth said with a smirk.

"Right..." I answered back. Our mentor, Renez Capture stood in front of us with a firm grip on a clipboard. My eyes widened as he looked at us with an icy cold stare.

"Training starts soon, get a good night's rest. The Capitol will be expecting it!" Renez said standing firm. I closed my eyes slightly as I ran up the stairs to find a teal green bed waiting for me to fall in. Like the ocean. I flopped down. I was floating.

We had stepped of the train, and I could tell Lena was shaking. "Might as well apologize..." I thought to myself. I walked toward Lena. "I'm sorry about earlier Lena...I wanted to apologize-I was a little...scared." I watched her turn to me as colorful wigs and pale white skin floated in the distance. I had a glimpse of Lena, light skin and blonde hair with a curl at the bottom with dark brown eyes. We could actually be friends, anything to stay alive in the games.

"Stay close to me...your the only part of District 4 I have..." She said softly. Now I knew she was scared. It was a shock to hear that. I smiled slightly as we were ussured to the place where they would keep us for the rest of our fancy stay. To my left was a spiral stair case, and furry chairs lined the room as a light pink table that was oddly shaped sat in front of us, and a TV that was running in the next room. "I don't think it's anything special." I said with a smirk.

"Right..." I heard Lena reply with her eyes still fixed around the room.

"How can you say such a thing!" I heard our escort say behind me. Her name was Renenta Louise. I spun on my heels to see a plump and stout lady, with a bright bedazzled yellow top hat and green dyed skin staring at me with a concerned look. "The Capitol made this especially for you! Can't you see how it represents District 4?" She said, folding her arms.

"Well they're missing one thing." I answered to her gesture.

"And what's that?" She replied, burrowing her eyebrows.

"The poor souls without any food or shealter." I said. I watched her mouth gape open as she walked away, making sure to stomp her heels. Then our mentor, Renez Capture stood in front of us. His hair was pulled back into a small low ponytail, and he held firmly onto his clipboard.

"Training starts soon, better gty a good night's rest! The Capitol will be expecting it!" He exclaimed. Lena had already vanished into her room, and I stood there. Just listening to the cheers of the citizens.

"Ouch!" I exclaimed as my stylist, Gerged, pulled the brush through my tangled hair.

"Sit still, or it won't hurt!" He answered. I watched the other members of my team wax my legs and my eyebrows. And God, did it hurt. My fingernails were painted a light blue. I guess it represented District 4. They were always trying to involve your District... The team had already gotten rid of the dead skin that was covering me, and made me look so delicate I could break.

"Gerged, I look like a china doll. Easy to break in training." I looked at Gerged, he was- well, plump. His eye shadow rose all the way up to his brows and his skin was dyed a light green. His hair was styled in a thick curl that covered his forehead, and tatoos covered his body.

"Exactly. So they won't expect you to kill them. Right?" He replied with a grin. I looked at myself in the mirror and saw a whole new me. My hair wasn't tangled and all of the imperfections were gone. Just like a china doll. I gripped my chair and turned my gaze towards Seth. He looked new also. His hair was combed perfectly and he was clean as can be. But he still had that cloudy grey still in his eyes. I watched him glance towards me with a slight grin as he mouthed the words, "Are you alright?" I nodded slightly.

Though I knew I was breaking.

(OOC Note: I messaged Seth, and he tells me what he's going to say in the posts so I can put it in.)

It wasn't as bad as I expected, I mean the waxing hurt an all but I was more concerned about Lena. She looked like she was going to have a seizure. Gerged, our fat stylist had us lined up with the rest of the tributes. Couldn't wait to put on our costume. "What are we this year Gerged? A fishing net?" I laughed.

"Of course not." He replied. He grapped two silk and blue sparkling outfits, mine was a suit encrested with shells and I had a prop of a trident, and a sea weed wreath that would circle my head. "I wanted to capture the waves. Like it?" Gerged said with a smile.

"Yeah..." It was a bit cheesy, but at least it wasn't a fishing net. He pulled Lena's out. The dress flowed down to become ripples and the bottom flowed onto the floor. It was strapless but still encrested with sea shells. She had a matching wreath.

"Go on and change!" Gerged exclaimed.
