Thank you guys for all the comments on the last episode! I decided to post another one tonight! One, because you guys wanted it and two, because tomorrow's easter and im not aloud to post! Anyways, hope you like this one!
Selena's POV (Everything is her pov btw so I probably won't write it every time)
I sat there in shock. It's Tay... The tribute is Tay... I found myself standing there having trouble breathing. I looked towards Tay and saw the look on her face. The other girls made way and Tay began walking towards the stage. I'm not letting this happen to her! I started pushing my way through the crowd towards the stage.
Selena: Tay! TAYLOR!
By now I was crying as the peacekeepers held me back. There was nothing left to do. Before I could stop myself I blurted out the only thing that could save her.
Selena: I volunteer! I volunteer as tribute!
There was only silence. From what I know, District 12 has never had a volunteer and if they have, it must have been long before my time.
Effie: Lovely! But I believe there's a small matter of introducing the reaping winner and then asking for volunteers, and if one does come forward then we, um...
If there ever was another volunteer, they must have been before her time aswell.
Effie: O! What does it matter?! Let her come forward!
The peacekeepers let me go and I began walking towards the stage.\
Tay: *Screaming* No,Selena! No! You can't go! *hugs her*
I was trying to hold back tears. I can't look weak. So far I look brave, and I need to keep it that way.
Selena: Tay, let go. Let go!
I felt someone pulling her back and turned to see Taylor carrying her.
Taylor: Up you go Sel.
I could tell he was trying his hardest not to burst out into tears as well. I looked back one more time at him taking Tay to my mother, and walked up the stairs slowly towards the stage. All eyes on me.
Effie: Well, bravo! That's the spirit of the games! What's your name?
Selena: *quietly* Selena Gomez.
Effie: I bet my buttons that was your sister.
I just nod wishing this was a dream I could wake up from.
Effie: Don't want her to steal all the glory, do we? Come on, everybody! Let's give a big round of applause to our newest tribute!
Not one person claps. But instead they do something very rare. They all place the 3 middle fingers on their left hand to their lips. This means thanks, it means admiration, it means goodbye to someone you love. After taking it all in Effie began to speak again.
Effie: It's time to choose our boy tribute!
I looked over and saw her reach her hand into the bowl, pulling out a slip of paper. She unfolded it and read the name into the microphone.
Effie: Justin Bieber.
My heart dropped once more as I looked in the crowd and saw him. Why him? Why does it have to be him?! I haven't really talked to him. I don't know him to well, but he is the reason my family is ok today. The only reason I'm here. After my father died my mother kinda went numb. She didn't speak, she didn't help me and Tay at all. I had to take over. When we were dying of hunger I started crying under a tree in front of his fathers bakery. He had a piece of burned bread in his hand and was outside being yelled at by his mother. Once his mother went inside our eyes met for a few seconds. Then he turned his head and then looked back it me. He threw the bread towards me and then walked back inside. The bread kept my family from starving. It gave me the strength to go on. It gave me hope. Till this day I still think about it. He gave me hope. I watched as he walked up on stage and we just stared at each other.
Effie: Well, what are you waiting for? Shake hands you two!
We reached out our hands and they connected. Are eyes didn't look away from the others once. We pulled our hands away and we finally lost eye contact.
Effie: Well, there you have it! Our district 12 tributes! Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber!
Hope you guys liked it!
