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.
