I love cosplaying, but I haven't done it in two years. I really miss it and want to return to it. Probably will try to next year.

I'm currently in school. Graduating with an associates degree this year.

And I'm trying to finish a novel and get published. So, there's me.

  The sound of their footsteps echoed as they ran down the empty, damaged streets. It was beginning to rain, just a sprinkle, but Morke didn’t pull the hood of her cape over her head yet.

 She didn’t mind the water spraying on her cheek and letting it soothe the burning of her ear. The cut still burned and what was left of her ear was red. She didn’t want it to get infected, but they had to find safety before she could even think about stopping her feet.

 She couldn’t wait for the night, as well. She wanted to see who had died in the bloodbath. She wanted to know who else was stalking these decrepit streets.

 Tyrone found a place to hide, a good place for shelter. It probably wouldn’t last long, Morke couldn’t imagine they would be allowed to hide for long without consequences, but at least it would be good for the night.

 Morke began digging around in the nearby buildings that seemed to have once been shops, but she didn’t find anything that wasn’t molded or dangerous to consume.

 She felt discouraged, but she just wiped the dirt on her hands off on her pants, and stepped out of the shops. It was dark out now, an ancient and damaged light post bulb flickered eerily overhead, but she looked up at the sky as the names and faces of the fallen began to show.

 So many had fallen, it was incredible. She bit her lip when she saw Connel’s face on the screen. She’d failed him. What if she won and had to go home to face his family? How could she tell them that she had failed their son?

 Pumila had died, too. And Kahli. Hah! Morke wished she could have helped with that kill, honestly, but at least she wasn’t going to go home. Morke felt no remorse for her loss.

 Along with her, Jade was also gone. That meant two Careers were out of the way, but that still left four, and District 4 hadn’t lost either tribute. They were going to be the most dangerous to deal with; the most difficult to destroy.

 Morke began making her way back to the shelter to rest for a little while. She used the edge of her cape to dabbed at the blood on her cheek from her scratch, and dabbed at her sliced ear. She winced and shook her head a bit. It hurt, but it wasn’t bleeding profusely anymore. That was a good sign. Maybe.

 She walked in and sat down next to Tyrone. He had suggested, upon her arrival back, to go and find Emory and Taryn, since they were the only ones left after Pumila’s apparent demise, and perhaps show them this shelter and keep them safe for a time. Morke knew they were never actually going to be safe, believing that lie would only get them killed, but she also thought that was a pretty good idea. With all the Careers still stalking about, it might give Emory and Taryn a better chance of survival.

“We can keep them safe. Like a family,” Tyrone said.

Morke didn’t want to tell Tyrone that she wasn’t going to lose, even if it meant hurting the people she had grown to care about. She wasn’t going to sacrifice herself for anyone. She didn’t want to fall into complacency with them. She knew how it was all going to end. She couldn’t call them a family if she had to kill them.

 She looked at her hands, they were scratched up from her encounter with Laurel. She’d killed someone already. She wondered what Tox thought of her; what her parents thought of her. They were probably proud, glad she was surviving, but they couldn’t be happy about what she’d done. It had been so gruesome. She could still see the blood on her hands, and she knew it wasn’t from the scratches. It was Laurel’s red blood.

 “Let’s just go and do that,” Morke said as she got back up to her feet, dusting her hands on her pants as if to get rid of the stains on her fingers.

 They wandered cautiously down the winding and dark streets. Morke knew they probably should have waited until morning light, but what if it was too late by tomorrow? What if Emory and Taryn got killed, or moved on? They couldn’t waste that kind of time, Tyrone had said.

 It was difficult to see their path, Morke tripped, and almost fell, multiple times along the way, but thankfully she had Tyrone to grab her elbow and steady her when that happened. He was so kind to her, but she didn’t feel that she deserved all of that kindness. She was a killer now, and it hadn’t paralyzed her. She was still willing to do whatever it took to get back home.

 Did that make her terrible? Maybe it did.

 They found the place they had left Taryn and Emory in, and Morke was relieved to still see both of them there. Emory looked absolutely distressed, and Morke took their hand and put an arm around their shoulder to guide them. Tyrone took charge of Taryn, taking their arm and helping them to walk carefully.

 “It’s okay, Emory,” Morke whispered as she helped them find their way back to the new shelter. “We have a safe place to stay for a little while.” she couldn’t help but say those things. Her mothering side was still strong, despite the current circumstances. Kids like Emory and Taryn were just too innocent for all of this. She hated watching them endure such things.

 She wondered if, one day, her son would endure such things.

 She closed her eyes and shook the thought from her head. He was only four years old. She didn’t want to think that far into the future yet.

 They made it back to the shelter with no serious problems. Morke still didn’t feel that they could relax, or be calm, but she watched as Tyrone took care of them and she wanted to do that too, but she didn’t feel like she could. She was too tense, too nervous to sit and try and calm these two innocent souls. She would have to leave it to Tyrone.

 Rest and healing was important, but Morke’s mind was racing and she couldn’t rest properly. Her ear didn’t sting as much anymore, but her bruises had turned black and blue. She didn’t mind so much, though. She was more worried about the fact that she had not seen the other tributes.

 She knew they had to be lurking, they had to be scooping them out. She told Tyrone they should move, but he suggested they stay. Emory still wasn’t acting like themself, and Taryn was still recovering from injuries inflicted during the bloodbath.

 How much longer could they wait before something bad happened?

 Morke started standing watch outside, then. She couldn’t stay inside and hope for the best anymore. She couldn’t keep pretending they were happy and safe, because she knew that wasn’t true.

 How could she pretend to be a family with them when she knew she might one day be holding a knife to their throat, like how she had to Laurel?

 She shifted the spear in her hand. Emory had given it to her, since they wanted nothing to do with it anymore. It had killed Pumila, it had still been stained with Pumila’s blood, but Morke had cleaned it with rain water because she wasn’t afraid of the blood like Emory was.

 She watched the puddles that rippled with the rain and she remembered how much Triste loved to play in the water. Her thoughts were torn from that happy memory in a split second by a loud crack of thunder. She looked up, and the sky began sparking with electricity. This wasn’t like the thunderstorms back home.

 “Tyrone! We need to move,” Morke shouted into the building where they had been hiding. They had been sitting for far too long. Staying still only made them a target. She felt like this thunderstorm was an ominous omen of the things to come.

 There was confusion from Tyrone, Emory, and Taryn, but Morke just grabbed Taryn’s arm. “We need to-!” another crack of thunder and spark of lightning. It made the ground rumble, and the rain began to pour. This wasn’t good. They had to move out, but before she could tell them what to do, Taryn bolted down the street.

 Morke frowned and pursued Taryn, leaving Emory and Tyrone to follow or take their own path. The Hunger Games was going to separate them all sooner or later. Why not sooner? That’s what the gamemakers had to be thinking.

 Well, they were only delaying the inevitable by sitting around the way they had been. She held the spear firmly in her hand as she chased Taryn. Morke wasn’t very fast, but she managed to keep Taryn in her sights. The Capitol wanted a show, so now they would get one.

 Could the gamemakers read her thoughts? Her thoughts about how she had to start killing the other people in this arena so that all of this could end? She knew she was playing into their clawed hands, but she also knew she wanted to go home.

 There was only one way to go home.

 “Taryn!” Morke shouted. Thunder cracked overhead again. Maybe the streets would flood with water and wash everyone away. Her lower legs were soaked from splashing into puddles that were scattered all over the streets.

 She didn’t like the thought of more blood staining her hands, but she didn’t like the thought of not going home, either. Her mind kept bouncing back and forth, but she knew how this was going to end.

 Taryn turned down an alleyway and Morke followed. This might be when it happened. Her heart began pounding at the very thought.

 Taryn stopped as a wall loomed before them, blocking any exit to the alley. Morke stopped a few feet away from them and she took a deep breath. Rain was still pelting her skin and clothes, her hair was wet and hung limply. She didn’t feel strong or powerful at this moment, but she knew she was. She had to be.

 “Taryn, I’m sorry,” Morke started. “There’s only one way out, right?”

 Taryn looked confused; uncertain. Morke didn’t want to betray their trust, but she had to.

 “I didn’t want to do this, but we have to, right? I want to go home,” Morke stepped forward, holding the spear. Taryn backed into the wall, looking like a small, cornered animal. “I can try to make it painless.” she was eager for the end. She had to hurry up the process, even if it meant killing innocent people. She’d already killed Laurel, she couldn’t believe she’d actually done it, but her determination to see her son again gave her the drive. The killing drive.

 Taryn ran before Morke could make a move, making an attempt to run past her in a last ditch effort for freedom, but Morke turned quickly and the spear’s sharp end caught Taryn’s side, causing a deep, cruel cut in their side and making Taryn scream out as they continued forward by momentum only, eventually tripping and falling to the hard ground.

 Morke felt extreme guilt rush through her body as she watched Taryn curled up on the ground, gripping their side with bloody fingers. Morke had promised it would be painless, and yet here she was causing Taryn so much pain.

 “Taryn-” but before she could say anything, Taryn was trying to get up to continue to move away from her. She had to stop this. Morke didn’t want Tyrone or Emory to see what she had done. She hoped she wouldn’t have to kill them, either.

 It was easy to keep up with Taryn now, they were weak and unable to run, and Morke stepped over and eventually crouched down and grabbed the back of Taryn’s uniform to keep them still. She wanted to apologize, to say something to ease this moment, but there was nothing that she could say.

 Taryn trusted her, but she wasn’t to be trusted.

 Morke adjusted the spear in her hand and then she slowly stood up. She didn’t want to be close to Taryn when they died. She put her foot on Taryn’s back to hold them still, which she felt was terrible and gruesome but she knew no other way to keep Taryn in place, and then she held the spear up, aiming it at their back.

 She closed her eyes, no goodbyes, and she stabbed the spear down at Taryn’s back. The scream that pierced the sky, louder than the thunderstorm above, caused her to flinch and pull the spear back quickly. She fell off balance, nearly falling completely over, because she was so flustered and overwhelmed. She couldn’t believe what she had just done.

 And Taryn wasn’t even dead yet. The cannon didn’t sound. Taryn was still writhing on the ground in pain, crying out. She had to make it stop, she had to help Taryn. This was the only way she could help Taryn now.

 Morke aimed for Taryn’s head now, her hands shaking. It was going to be terrible, but she had to. She couldn’t let it go on like this.

“I’m sorry!” she exclaimed as she looked away and then stabbed their skull with the sharp spear. The loud crack made her entire body cringe and she released the spear and stepped back.

 She stumbled until she was against the alley wall and she closed her eyes, sitting down and pressing her palms against her face to prevent tears. The cannon sounded a moment later. Taryn was definitely gone, and she was definitely a murderer.

 “B-but it’s o-one less, right? I’m a-almost home,” Morke whispered, her lower lip quivering a bit.

 She took a long moment before she could finally breathe a bit easier, and she took her spear back from Taryn’s corpse. She knew she’d need it again. Her entire body was shivering from the cold rain and from her shock at what had just happened.

 She was responsible for Taryn’s death. She was going to have to live with that, if she survived this.

 She walked out of the alleyway and she looked around. There was no sign of Emory or Tyrone, and she was glad for that, honestly. She knew she couldn’t face either of them again. She was going to have to just go on her own, find some shelter until the rain let up, and then move on and keep killing until she could go home.

 It wasn’t a sound plan, but it was the only plan she had. The only friend she was going to have in this Game was this spear in her hand. This was all she had, and all she needed.
Round 2: Fight or Flight
I'm always the first one, I know, but I can't help myself LOL I'm going to be really busy in the next couple of weeks so I gotta do it. Plus I couldn't edit it anymore. It is what it is now.

Morke gained a new spear. She did not end up with anymore physical injuries. Just emotional ones.

I'm not too sure what else to put here. I'll potentially add more later. Morke is trying to keep this attitude of moving forward, because she just wants to go home. She knows it's terrible, but there's no other way. </3 So.....yeah, sorry.

Just a small thing before my actual entry for this round. The theme for this round is My Heart is a Ghost Town by Adam Lambert. I don't know. I'm probably going to be uploading my entry pretty soon, because the next week or so is gonna be ridiculous for me, so I want to make sure I get some quality writing in and drop it like it's hot. I don't know what I'm saying anymore.

Morke belongs to me
the lyrics belong to Adam Lambert, or whoever wrote them.

The blood of my brothers by HopefulCloud
The blood of my brothers
this is an original baby of mine. Like original original. I've had him for years and years and I've been feverishly working on a novel with him in it, because I want to publish it eventually. I think I've said that a billion times, but I want to make it real this time LOL we'll see.

Either way. Yeah idk. He's angsty but he has every right to be. He's lost almost every companion he's had in his life in some way or another, but he has a goal to finish. He can't stop until then.

I feel like this isn't the best. But whatever. I can never draw them as well as I envision them.

Kai belongs to me. And that's it.
