katniss enters the Hunger Games no longer in communication with any of her teachers or peeta. katniss still doesn't know weather she is to think of him as an Ally or enemy. she knew she needed weapons of some kind. Ignoring her teachers, as soon as the contestants were released she bolted to the nearest bag of equipment and had to wrestle a boy for it. Also a girl tried to kill them while they were struggling by throwing knives at her she used the backpack for defence and also gained a throwing knife of her own. for days she walked and ran for as long as she could trying to separate herself from the other contestants. many canon shots were fired of this indicating someones death in the arena. Katniss climbed up a tree until she couldn't anymore and set up a sleeping bag to stay there for the night. After a while of resting she heard something coming out of the trees. its a group of people the careers or contestants from districts 1, 2, and three a long with peeta.
