"President Bailey seems nice," said Ariel as she took a sip of her water. "Yeah, she does," I replied, swinging around a Trident in one of the training rooms here in District 13. "Any news from District 4 yet," she asked. "Nothing. President Bailey said that they were going to find a way to get out families out of there." Ariel nodded and stood back up. We spared for a while. She managed to get me down more times. When we finished I took a sip of my water and looked at the monitor above. "And we now move on to an update of the Hunger Games mishap from about five days ago. News has just broke out that the Capitol was able to get the power back on, without the Gamesmaker," the report kept on going about how this may be the spark of another rebellion. "Don't pay attention to it," said Ariel and she continued on, "We just have to focus on getting our families out of District 4. Once we take care of that, then we can focus on other stuff." "Yeah, you're right." We cleaned up and met back at the Cafeteria. We sat together, but suddenly someone put their tray in front of us, as we were about to talk. I looked up and saw a boy, around my age. "Did you really sell Signed copies of volumes 13 and 32 of Space Werewolves," he asked. I looked at him for a moment, before replying, "Yeah. How did you know?" I was a little weirded out that he knew. "I watched the feed. It was a really stupid decision of yours to do that. Volume 10 is barely worth a dime." I smiled a little, "If I had more time to explain, then I would have told Ka-I mean Maddie that it was a special version of it." "What's Space Werewolves," asked Ariel. I looked at her as if she had asked the dumbest question ever. "Only the greatest graphic novel series ever," I said. Ariel gave me a blank look. "You never heard of it," asked the boy. She shook her head. "Ariel, remember when we were in fourth grade and you ripped the cover off of Levi's book and screamed at it because it scared you?" Ariel broke out a small laugh, "Yeah." "You ripped off the cover of volume 16 of Space Werewolves." "Oh, yeah. I remember now. I screamed so loud that the town square could hear it," she said. I felt someone tap my shoulder. I turned and saw a tall dark man, with a robotic arm. "I'm sorry to interrupt your conversion, but we have a rescue plan to get both your families out," he said to me and Ariel. I looked at the boy, "I would love to continue talk Space Werewolves, but I have to go." "Its fine, maybe later," he asked. I nodded, "Yeah, later." I turned around, but he asked, "Hey, what's your name?" I turned back, "Finn." "Parker," he replied.
