Queen, a bouncy, over-the-top lady from the Capitol walked up onto the platform. "Welcome, welcome, to this year's 76th annual hunger games!" She said. "Now, as always, ladies first". Her silver white glove slipped off her hands as she she took them off and reached into the bowl. Her heart pounded loudly until Queen quickly chose the card and walked up to the microphone. She cleared her throat and smiled, looking the card. "Rosy Hawthorne". She called. Rosy looked around, shaking and gulping. "No..." Lilac whispered to herself. "No...no..NO"! She ran forward, pushing Rosy behind her. "I volunteer! I volunteer as tribute"! She screams. Silence. That's what meets her. Queen gulps and quickly picks out a male tribute, someone named Marcellas and they shake hands. She gulps an they are quickly escorted to the train, where she gazes in awe at the amazing mouth watering dishes.
