Blood Debt: The 68th Hunger Games

By TJ_Flynn

Scifi / Action

Prologue

One Day After the Reaping

District 9

Kelly Scott

"Excuse me!" I yell to the shopkeeper. He ignores me, who does he think he is? "Excuse me!" I yell a bit louder. He glances my way, but seems more interested in serving his customers.

"What?" he says sounding somewhat agitated.

"Your T.V. isn't on." I say with a frown.

"So?" He says refilling his customer's drink.

"It is against the rules; you must turn on the television for the recap of the tributes."

"Come on, everyone here is having a good time." He says causally.

"It is illegal. It is Capitol week and therefore against the guidelines to have your television off. I suggest you turn on your T.V. or take down that part of your shop. If you are puzzled I suggest you look at the shop next door. If it's unchanged I'll report you."

The man grunts something about me being a busybody, but he was breaking the rules!

"Happy now?" He says flipping on the T.V. I glue my eyes to the T.V. as they begin showing the tributes' profiles.

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story.
