"Good job Annie!" Phaedra said with a bright smile, she placed the sword back on the rack. She had won, again and she was damn proud of it. When an elbow flashed and held her by the throat against the wall, Phaedra was surprised as evidenced by her wide eyes.
"You call me Annie one more time you condescending swine and I will slit your throat. Understood? The name's Antiope and you better speak it with respect!" the words were throaty, spoken with wide deranged eyes. 

The small nod that followed only made Antiope's face lighten with a pearly white smile. She removed her elbow and fixed her hair. Phaedra would always be better with swords as they were peasant weapons, but she simply didn't have the it factor that Antiope had. Theseus had said so. 

And either way, she was an elegant muse, swords didn't require any skill. A sharp blade could be used by about anyone with half a brain. Now, a whip? A meteor hammer? A chakram? Those were weapons worthy of a Goddess of war. Had that not been what Theseus had called her? 

Theseus, the man she loved, the one who had declared his love to her. He was older, a trainer, the one who continued to encourage her to train harder, to come back a Victor so they could have a life together full of riches. Of course that was only half the motivation: fame, riches, an entire nation bowing to her, that was what being a Victor was about.

"You don't scare me, you know?" Phaedra again with the smart mouth, Antiope clicked her tongue as she finished tying her shoelaces. She stood back up and Phaedra jumped slightly. 
"Then why do you flinch everytime I approach you?" she asked eyebrows raised, a smirk playing on her lips. 
"Oh... that, sweetie, it's your super broad man-shoulders, I just want to make sure you have enough space honey," Phaedra shrugged and Antiope felt the blood boil inside of her. A claw-like hand shot forward fingers lacing through the dark locks of her arch-rival, with one swift move she had pulled Phaedra to her knees. 
"Know your place peasant! Kneel down when you speak to your queen," she said as Phaedra whimpered. 

How such a pathetic excuse of a human being was one of the top contenders for the volunteer spot was beyond her. 

Antiope stood in place her hands clenched into fists behind her back. The decision echoed inside of her head and she was doing her best to not jump across the stage and punch that envious swine right in the mouth. Send her into the Capitol with a missing tooth, now wouldn't that be funny? 

But that would only further prove their point. That she was too volatile, which contrasted with the fact that she was too girly. Her mastery of weapons was huge but she only shined in the few that required some type of tempo. Her strong legs and high jumps did not make up for her low stamina. And the fact she had turned Phaedra into her rag doll went beyond what the panel considered a 'healthy competitive rivalry' made her seem unlikable to the point where Capitol sponsorship would be hard to come by. 

She was good, they said, but Phaedra was better rounded. And for that she had been excused five minutes ago. Perhaps next year, they had said, maybe she could work on that and be ready for when she was eighteen. But that was not good enough. They had asked her to leave, but she had not moved. She could not move. It simply felt like her life was over.

"He's been mine this entire time Annie! He always told me about you, we made fun of you a lot. Sweetie, you are not good enough for him. You are just a slut who opened her legs far too quickly, and you are not even good at that. Your lips are too big, your skin is too dark, and your eyes are too far apart. I mean, that's why he chose me and you're gonna stay here alone," she laughed and Antiope wanted to lunge forward. She didn't though, because despite her hatred for that melodic chiming that was Phaedra's laugh she knew that her arch-rival had taken everything from her. Her slot in the games, her man, her fame, her fortune. What could she do now? Beating Phaedra up would not fix anything. Not in the long run, just immediate satisfaction, and even though she was impulsive she had to be smart this time. 

She held the scissors in her hand as she stared at the mirror. Too girly? Too volatile? She would show them. Antiope always got what she wanted and there was absolutely no way she was going to allow Phaedra and Theseus to get their happy ending. 

The scissors closed and her long dark locks fell on the sink, a manic smile appeared on her face. They thought she was volatile? They had not seen any of it. They had awoken something more, something primal inside of her that surpassed every single ounce of pettiness inside her body. 

Lock after lock fell to the sink, and then her father's clippers came out. It took all but five minutes for her to emerge of that bathroom a different woman: the hair Theseus had once loved all gone to be replaced by the strong femininity of a shaved head. 

That would show them.
