Prologue

โ€œDeep in the meadow, under the willow,โ€ my mother sang.

โ€œA bed of grass, a soft green pillow,โ€ she stopped abruptly and stared out the window into the distance. โ€œItโ€™s all my fault Willow, I should have agreed to be the Mockingjay. I could have ended all of this, but I didnโ€™t, I didnโ€™t, and now I have to mentor two kids a year and send them to their deaths. Just tell me you will never volunteer, TELL ME!โ€

โ€œI... Ok,โ€ I reply.

โ€œOk,โ€ she said and left my room.


My name is Willow Primrose Mellark, my parents are infamous in all of Panem so I would be surprised if you hadnโ€™t heard of them. Their names are Katniss Everdeen, well, no, Katniss Mellark now that she married my father, Peeta Mellark. I have other family members too, my brother, Rye Cinna Mellark, my -not official- grandpa Haymitch, my -official- grandma who I have never met and lives in District 8 and my Aunt Primrose, who I was named after and who died as the bombs went off in the Capitol. I look at the clock and sigh deeply. 1:30, I should get prepared before hunting for my third reaping at 4:00.

I go into my room and see an envelope lying on my dresser with two sheets of paper in it. I walk over to it and open the first one:


Dear miss Willow Mellark, I read

If you are reading this it must be the morning of the reaping. Could you please pass on the second page of this letter to your mother, Katniss Mellark, it is a matter of greatest importance. Good luck at the reaping today, itโ€™s your third if I am correct.

May the Odds be ever in your favor,

Erika Snow


I start, shocked, President Erika sent me a letter, a letter that she told me to pass on to my mother. A sickly sweet scent hits my nose, I look down and see a single black primrose lying on my bed. A primrose, a primrose. I know this has something to do with me, my aunt and my mother. I gasp and head out the door, trying to forget what happened. I put on a light green dress with a matching ribbon in my dark hair and dark grey-blue hunting boots that match my eyes exactly.

โ€œReady to hunt?โ€ calls Grandpa.

โ€œReady,โ€ I call back, slipping the second page of the envelope into my reaping skirt pocket. Iโ€™m not stupid. Of course Iโ€™m not giving it to my mother.

Denise: You are an amazing writer, I love your stories please keep going with more stories of the riders.

ravishing_love1: I wondered when Forger was introduced in Book 1, when he would have his own story and here it is. What is it with all these bikes falling in love at first sight... I want that.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #9 is just another amazing read from this author.

ravishing_love1: The perfect couple.. Mac keeps Eva grounded and Eva makes Mac feel again. Love how you always get to know the backstory of all character. Plus in this story you meet Eva's drinking, dinner and gambling buddies. Thanks for throwing the plot twist in on Mac's ex..

ravishing_love1: This was my favorite read, so far. Breaker was the knight in shining armour that saved the fair maiden. She helps him thru his mute issue and he helps her stay focused.

ravishing_love1: After reading what Rubble did in story #4, you really do not like the guy.. BUT reading about him in story #5, you really, really want him to find someone. So happy Juni came along to fill the void he had. The Author always ties the stories together and I love she does that.
