I mean, in the parade she was more genuine, though her hand was...damp. Apparently girls find being told their hands are sweaty offensive. My best friend, Alana, or Nala as I called her, didn’t care. She found Zhara annoying. I don’t know. Zhara was blonde, and probably quite pretty, not that I cared. I spoke to her on three occasions at home. I liked her mother though. She was friends with my mother, and tried to pair me and Zhara up once. Not her best moment. I have as much interest in Zhara as I do in boredom.
Hits the nail on the head! You got it right- Zhara was just trying too hard and she was supposed to seem... fake.

I'm sure Roxanne either openly despised me or I was misinterpreting her every move. Most likely the last one.


Cassius on the escort....
Nice Like how you portray Cassius.

Oh I know. Zhara probably cannot stand him. As he said earlier, his personality is too complex for him to join the careers - he refused to be part of their pack.

Oh! Cassius' score in the Bob Hare psychopath checklist:
19. He's not a pyschopath. He just thinks he is because he's anti-social and his dad is.

My score is: 25. Psychopaths have to be over 30.

Cassius' dad's score is 36

My friend who cannot afford KP at the moment says she'll email me the writing and I can give it to you. I mean, we're short on writers, is this allowed?

NAME: Tetch King
GENDER: male
DISTRICT: 7
AGE: 15
WEAPON OF CHOICE: deadly serrated knives, or swords
BACKGROUND: part of a gang in his district, already knows how to fight. His mother is relaitively well off, but refuses to give him any money, so he claimed tesserae so he could live with his father doing nothing much.
STRATEGY: Kill.
ALLIANCES (a specific character OR anyone from District ___): the Careers. He's short, stocky, and brutal enough. He'll die pretty quickly (I have already arranged for Cassius, my character to kill him), but he'll make a mess
MOTIVATION: money
STRENGTHS: brutality, decapitation, he's very strong
WEAKNESSES: not the brightest spark, selfish, oh, and he likes girls.
DEATH: Cassius kills him in a massive fight, he dies at the end of his chapter
OTHER: chapter 11 please. If it tis open.

How's this? I think I rushed it

I walked slowly onto stage and sit down on the chair, "Sprucetree Brinon!" Ceaser yells into the microphone, I nod slowly. "How are you enjoying your stay?" he asks, I looked up at him "Could be better", the crowd laughs along with Ceaser and I smile, "Why is that?" he asks humorously "The beds are a little hard" another round of laughing greet my words, "What will your strategy be once the games begins?" I grin "You really think I'd reveal that?" Ceaser smiles "You don't have to tell us the truth" This time its me who laughs "Yes, right. My strategy is to get a bow, grow wings and kill everyone from the air!" the buzzer goes off and I walk to my chair beside the other Tributes as the crowd laughs yet again.
