Rye flopped down on the grass beside her best friend Jason.
"I guess you heard the announcement too?" Only that morning the capitol had announced that they would begin a new program to enhance the youth of Panem. They had taken the technology used to create the Mutts in the arena and they were now launching a new program that would give select Panem youth powers.
"What do you think Jason, will they choose me to go? "Jason starred up at the clear blue sky "Rye the capitol is wanting to bring back the games but in an even greater way than before! There is nothing honorable about being called to the capitol"
Rye rolled her eyes after all Jason had always been such a worrier. "Just think though Jason we would be like celebrities! The very first of a whole new generation!"
"Rye I'm telling you I don't have a good feeling about this and I wish you had not put your name in the running to go. Its not too late to withdraw you know."
Katniss and Gail had been warning her for months about the danger of applying for the program. But just like her mother Rye was very stubborn. Katniss and Gail had reluctantly given their blessing for her to apply for the program.
The program would last 3 months and was split into 2 parts: Treatment where the serum would be infused into the tributes body and then they would be observed for a short time. After that would be 2 months of specialized training where they would learn how to control their powers and be briefed on their new responsibilities as peacekeeprs in the districts.
One last look in the mirror and Rye was off to the justice building. Katniss had the twins ready downstairs and then they were off.
Rye began to tremble with anticipation as she searched for her boyfriend Trent in the crowd that had gathered. She had convinced him to apply for the guys spot and hopefully they would be able to go together.
The mayor did not make even an attempt at a speech he just stood up slowly and began to read
"The Capitol is very pleased with the wonderful response we received from your district. There were many wonderful applicants but after a careful review we have decided to accept the following young people to our training program for gifted young people.
"Ryeley Mellark and Trent Jabis"
