There’s a large garden in District Nine, filled with fruitful plants and trees. It would look free and beautiful if it weren’t for the peacekeepers in every corner.
Non-farmers are forbidden in The Garden, and if the peacekeepers saw anyone help the kids get in, they would be electrocuted weekly—never to death, but until stinging agony that you wished you were dead. Today’s special. Today is The Reaping. If someone’s caught stealing, they’d be the tribute.
