Kristopher Night, 18

I stood out in the crowd. 


Everybody else had dressed up for the reaping day: I didn't bother. My usual skin tight jeans and leather jacket should be enough. I'm not the kind of person to show off.


My father won the 67th Hunger Games, so the Capitol granted him his freedom and we chose to come and live here in Polyem. Little did we know, they would follow the trend. The Poly Games started two years ago, and 46 tributes have been murdered to date. 


I've been training my whole life. My father made it a priority from the day I was born. By the time I was three I could hit all of the targets in my training rooms with a variety of weapons, and was strong enough to beat my six year old brother in a fight (he refused to train and was a burden to the family, and so ended his life three years ago). 


My father died the year before last and my mother took off when I was born. I have struggled with depression since then and have used my training as a way to keep going. 


I am deadly. You do not want to upset me.


I had my finger pricked and went to stand with the other 18 year olds. I had been considering volunteering. Since father died, our house in the victors village had been taken away and I was living in the slums. It was no longer living my life. Winning would be a way to get it back.


I stood in the crowd, considering, whilst they called out the names. But I couldn't hear them. The voices had started again...

"Volunteer, you know you want to... You have nothing left, just go to die..."

Before I knew it the voices had gone. I looked up relieved, only to find a young girl holding out her hand to me. 


I had volunteered.


Realising I had no choice, I shook her hand with a look of disgust on my face. At least I had remembered to wear my charm bracelet.


It was time for the games to begin!
