Losing Rachel was really difficult for me, but the time was passing by, and as the years faded, it got less and less painful. Of course, the pain will never go away entirely. That just wouldn't be possible. She's gone, and nothing will fill that gap. Ever since she volunteered, I missed her. I know I should have had more confidence that she'd come back. Maybe that would have even helped her go further in the Games and come back home to us. Unfortunately, nothing can be done about that now. She's gone and always will be.
I try to avoid thinking about the Games as much as possible. When I see certain things that remind me of them, however, it's hard to look away. Today was one of those days where I just couldn't avert my gaze. I saw someone that reminded me all too much of what happened in the Seventy-Fourth Hunger Games where Rachel took her final breath. What I saw was a boy that looked all too much like Rachel's District partner, Torka Hammerfell.
I should have just pushed it from my mind and ignored it, but I couldn't. I don't know what part of me urged my feet to propel me towards him, but it happened. When it happened, I spoke to him. Now, I'm starting to wonder if that's something I ever should have done in the first place.

I'm just standing there minding my own business away from the rest of the world when someone asks if she can ask me something. I don't know who she is or what she wants to talk about. I have a busy day. So much stuff planned, and yet she wants to ask me another question. I'm not entirely sure who she is or what she wants. I just hope she doesn't stay long because I want to get going on my way. I have to train. I have to pick something up for dinner. I have to help cook dinner. Maybe even take a shower and clean up so I look nice. I turn to face her still trying to figure out who she is and what she wants. Might as well figure out what's up. "Sure."

When I inquired of the boy man as to if I could ask him a question, my heart skipped a beat when he actually looked at me. He was really quite intimidating-looking. It wasn't what I expected when I saw him from behind. That was for sure. The other thing that surprised me, though, was that he was willing to let me talk to him, at least for a moment.
"Uh-" I started, stumbling over my words at first. "I hope this is okay to ask- do you happen to be a Hammerfell? It's just... you have that resemblance, and, well... uhm, my cousin knew Torka Hammerfell. She was his District partner." That was when I realized how much I was saying. "I'm sorry, I'm kind of rambling on, I suppose." My face went beet red when I said this as the nervousness built up inside of me.
