DISTRICT ELEVEN REAPING
Once more, Moxie was herded along with other girls her age into rows. She stood near the back this year, with the other older girls. It was almost like a tiered race to freedom. Each year she took another step back and one year she'd be standing among the crowd, ineligible for reaping, and finally free of her fear.
She'd been through her identification, the blood pulled from her finger and matched to her file. Everyone had been accounted for. The people of District Eleven stood, the children in rows, the adults and smaller children stock still in a crowd. Everyone was just waiting. Moxie didn't dare draw a breath over the sound of a whisper.
The hem of her dress blew silently in the wind as the escort began the parade of fools. Out in the field, she'd be able to hear the wind rustling through the tobacco. A storm never sneaked up on them out there. They could hear even the slightest changes in the field, feel when the muggy heat got heavier. They knew when hard times were going to strike. Moxie knew here at the Hall of Justice, it was a different story.
Before long they had a boy ready for the Games, standing silent and proud as he should. A brave face, Moxie knew, but there wasn't a lack of bravery in Eleven. The escort dipped painted nails into another bowl, the scratch of the paper against the and their fellows sounded like the leaves of the tobacco plant rustling together, the very first sign of a storm to come.
And then, her name was called.
She stood bravely, her chin high, her fists tangled in the hem of her dress, ready to face the thunder and lightning.
