The Games of Loss: BTG Part 2 Chapter 6By the time Sam finally gets the fire going it's already mid-afternoon. I'm more thirsty than hungry at this point. No matter how much I beg, Sam won't let me go to the lake. He says it's "dangerous", which it probably is, but I need water! Does he not see that? I'm sure he's thirsty too.The Games of Loss: BTG Part 2 Chapter 6 by PeetathebreadMellark
"Okay, Sam. If you won't let me go to the lake and get water, why don't you go yourself?" I cross my arms.
"Fine. I will," Sam says with a smirk.
"Fine. Can I come?"
"No," he says flatly.
"Why not?" I ask.
"Like I said, it's dangerous. Besides, you have to stay here and guard our stuff. Oh, and make sure you keep adding bark to the fire."
"I don't even know what that means!"
"Yeah, maybe you should go get the water, after all," he says.
"Really?" I ask eagerly.
He laughs. "No!"
I give him a
The Games of Loss: BTG Part 2 Chapter 5My stomach contracts, followed by a loud gulp. I wonder if he can hear my heart beating in my chest. I know I can. Baboom baboom baboom baboom, it races. Although Levi isn't exactly an enemy, he's not exactly a friend. He may have spoken out against the Capitol, displaying us not as tributes but as human beings, but he's still from District One. He can't be trusted. He has the potential to be a Career. Muscular, large, experienced. He could kill me right here, right now. Then again, he let Sam go. He could've killed him too. But this is different. We're face to face. Plus, he and Sam sat at the same lunch table for a few days. They probably talked and became friends. Not me. I've never uttered to him, never even given him a glance, made eye contact with him. He may have seen me in theThe Games of Loss: BTG Part 2 Chapter 5 by PeetathebreadMellark
The Games of Loss: BTG Part 2 Chapter 4When I awake, I'm greeted by sunlight and warmth. I'm nuzzled up against Sam, who appears to be sleeping still. I sigh and detach myself from him. At this, he wakes up with a yawn. Unfortunately, I'm still wrapped around him.The Games of Loss: BTG Part 2 Chapter 4 by PeetathebreadMellark
"Good morning," he says cheerfully, smiling at our closeness.
I do my best to smile. "Morning." I can't say good morning if it isn't one.
"What's wrong?" He takes my hand in his. I push him away lightly.
"I was just thinking. Don't worry about it," I tell him, sitting up and rubbing my eyes groggily.
"Alright." He sighs, his smile fading. I'm surprised he isn't protesting. Surely he knows I'm lying. "Are you hungry?" he asks.
I haven't even thought about food. Not at all, not since yesterday morning when Richard told us to eat as much as we could. Even then I was thinking more about the arena, like I am now.

I sigh, looking at Ruby asleep on my shoulder. I guess I'll be taking the first watch. Not that I wouldn't offer to anyway. I scoop her up and carry her into our tent. Surprisingly, she doesn't stir. I wonder if I should wake her for the death recaps. I decide against it, doubting she'll want to know each and every tribute that has died. I don't even want to see it. The anthem plays that proceeds the seal of the Capitol that lights up the night sky, appearing to be floating in mid-air. One by one, the faces of the dead tributes appear in the sky. I watch closely, a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. They go in district order, first District One, then District Two, and so on. I'm relieved to see that Levi survived. He doesn't seem like a bad guy. When we met at the Cornucopia, I'm sure he could've killed me right
