Step 2: Gather the TributesRhona Velaro shoved over a trashcan with a scowl. There was absolutely no water anywhere in the accursed Arena City. Without water... well, there wasn’t snowball’s chance in hell that she was going to survive.
Snow. Rhona remembered snow. Not very fondly, admittedly- It was mostly a hassle for the runners way back in six.
Occasionally, though, when the snow fell thick and sticky, the runners would go out and pack the snow up into balls. The day would be spent having fun, throwing it at each other, and stuffing it down each others’ clothes.
It wasn’t much of a family, but a little is still something. Even the smallest match can give the most precious warmth.
For Ofelia and Garrett, snow meant something different. It meant forbidden cities and hopping zombies and a polar bear that would carry them on it’s back. It meant cold and hypothermia and sharing body heat for warmth.
But when the snow was gone, all that was left was the bear, each other, and a red
Prologue- Step 1: Make An Impact"Sir, we have a problem."
"What kind of problem?" Two pairs of eyes turned towards the Gamemaker who had spoken up.
"Mr. Ludus, Ms. Lamon, sirs..." The Gamemaker hesitated. "It's about the remaining tributes."
"What about them?" The woman spoke, tilting her head slightly. "There's only four left."
The underling pulled up four files, each with a picture, a name, and a district.
"The four remaining are Ofelia Qian of District Three, Ame Gater of District Five, and Rhona Velaro and Garrett Lykke of District Six."
"So?" The blue-hair man frowned further. It was as if the games were not a required viewing for the country, and he did not had to manage everything in the Arena. He was being told information literally everyone already knew.
"Qian was noted to mostly read during the training session, and though the death of Cyril Mors was attributed to her, it was only after he and his group attacked her that she retaliated.
Gater was present at four different deaths. Though three of those fo
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
