Yoongi who said he’d cry in the Olympic Gymnasium Arena was NOT lying at all. Not to mention him and V bowed to the army and their family omg. All of them were so overwhelmed ;__; I hope they’ll achieve even more in the future! We love you bangtan!!!
Welcome to the training center. You have all been selected to practice your skills over the course of the next few days. There is one rule: Do Not Fight With The Other Competitors. You’ll have much time for that in the arena.
You heard a voice echo in the Training Center. You were all in a circle, every district. You stood next to Namjoon and all you wanted to do was hide behind him. Suddenly everyone broke the circle and went to their particular station while you just stood there.
Namjoon walked over to the station where dummies stood. On the tray next to the first dummy there were weapons; Knifes, spears, brass knuckles, etc.
You watched as he circled the dummy, taunting it. He finally hit it and the sound scared the life out of you. The dummy’s body swung back and forth at a rapid pace due to the force of the punch that Namjoon gave it.
“Are you just going to stand there?”
A voice broke you out of your deep thoughts. You noticed that it was Namjoon talking to you.
Wow.. his voice is so…
“Hello? Y/n you need to go prepare, this is not something you should take lightly. You can die.”
Nodding slightly you took a deep breath and walked over to the other station, directly next to his.
You knew how to fight, well.. you could hold your own in a one on one but not..
I’ll die if they corner me.
You shook the thought from your head as you took your fighting stance in front of the dummy.
One, two. One, two
You counted in your head as you sent quick jabs and punches to the body and face of the dummy.
You didn’t notice Namjoon stop practicing and start watching you. He followed your moves, studied how you breathed while you punched. You wouldn’t have noticed if he didn’t walk up behind you.
You felt a tap on your shoulder and your reflexes kicked in. Turning around you threw a punch at the stranger but he blocked it and twisted it behind your back.
“Easy tiger.. It’s just me.” Namjoon whispered in your ear.
Chills ran down your spine and you calmed.
“You’re not focusing, you have to focus Y/n. You’re going to be a target in that arena if you don’t focus. Do you think that they’re going to lose sleep when they kill you? No. They won’t. There is only one rule in the Games and that is to win and just by looking at you I assure you that you will not win without focusing.”
You looked in his eyes. Searching for a reason as to why he cared so much.
He probably wants me to let down my guard so he can kill me without a problem in the arena.
“Come on, I’ll train with you.”
“What?” You asked. Shocked
“I said that I’ll train with you. I’ll help you. I don’t want you dying.”
Your heart stopped. What?
Does he like me…
“You’re my ally.”
You rolled your eyes at the circle that you were in.
They all are going to kill each other. Why are they acting so nice?
Yoongi was to your left and you felt him staring at you. You looked over at him to see him looking at the guy from District 1. He was a big guy, probably the biggest one there. You knew Yoongi was sizing him up.
He’ll be the first one to go
You were the first to walk away from the circle to go the station where weapons and gadgets sat on the tray.
You sat on the mat and wrapped the spears and knifes in a special kind of paper that you had recognized from your district. When thrown the paper would catch fire. So when you rapped the blades in the paper if you were to throw them, it would catch fire, basically burning and piercing whoever you aimed it at.
You felt someone staring at you and when you turned to look, it was Yoongi.
He is so handsome…
He stood by the fire that he had lit from practically nothing.
How did he…
You expected him to look away from you but he didn’t, instead he kept staring. The flames shadow flickered on his face and you thought about what to do next.
“Is there something I can help you with?” You asked coldly, putting your attention back on the wrapping of the blades.
You heard a chuckle, “No, I was just thinking of how long you were going to survive. Whether or not I should even bother with this alliance.”
“Alliance?” Your attention was back on him.
“Our mentor didn’t tell you? Huh.. figures.”
“Alliance?” You questioned again. Yoongi stalked towards your sitting form and squats down in front of you.
“Do you not know what the word means or are you that happy to be with me?” He smirked
You looked him up and down…bit your lip and looked back at him. Smirking you whispered, “Hopefully there will be marshmellows at the arena.. otherwise your little fire trick wont do us any good.”
He chuckled again.
“We’ll see about that, ally.”
You held on to your arms as you looked around the circle. One of these people will murder you.. in cold blood. What’s the point of even getting close to them?
The circle was broken and everyone went to their stations. You walked over to yours and ran your finger tips over the spears. You had fenced with your best friends dad when you were little so you knew how to handle yourself with a long ended weapon.
Who will do it?
You easily turned your fear into anger and now was no exception, you fenced with the non-moving dummies that encircled you. Stabbing, slicing, jabbing.. anything you could do to take away the fear.
You were zoning out until something flew past your head, landing in the middle of the dummy’s.
Gasping for air, you let the spear fall from your shaking hands as you looked over to wear the flying dagger came from. It was Jimin
“What the fuck was that for?! Didn’t you hear the voice? WAIT TIL YOU GET TO THE ARENA. Fuck, are you trying to kill me already? What the hell did I do to you huh?!” You screamed. See.. fear turns to anger.
“Calm down! I’m sorry okay? I didn’t mean to scare yo-”
“What did you think my reaction was going to be?! You through a dagger at my head!”
He laughed a little.
“I said I was sorry. I just wanted to see how you would handle the situation. Everyone tests their allies don’t they?”
“Excuse me?” You asked
“We’re in an alliance.” It was your turn to laugh now.
You scoffed, “No way! You think that I am going to be in an alliance with someone who likes to throw daggers at my head?”
Jimin sighed. “I am sorry Y/n. I promise I wont do it again.”
“You aimed for my head Jimin! You cant just say sorry!”
He laughed again, “I didn’t aim at your head, if I did. You’d be dead by now.”
“What makes you so sure?” You asked
“I don’t miss, ally.” He smirked.
You felt like you couldn’t move. Like your feet were glued to the floor and gravity was pushing you down even harder. You felt like everyone’s eyes were on you.
Everyone was moving away from you, going to their stations you assumed, you just stayed still.
Why am I here. Why cant I be there with you
You were alone in the middle of the room. Sounds of grunting and screams filled your ears. 24 people were in this room… and 23 would never get to see anything out side of it ever again.
You felt someone touch you and you jumped.
“Hey.. calm down. It’s only me.. Tae.”
He reached for you again and this time you let him hold your hand to help you up.
“Are you okay? I mean besides the fact that you’re here, are you okay?”
Okay? No Im not okay
“No..” you whispered quietly, looking down at the floor again.
“Come on there has to be something you’re good at. Think harder.” He smiled
“Hiding… Im good at hiding.”
“Ahh.. see there we go. I knew you had to be good at something. Can you use a weapon?”
You nodded and stilled your breathing.
“Okay.. okay. You’re good at hiding, I’m the best at climbing. We’ll train with weapons that way we can defend ourselves without always running.” He told you while he led you to one of the stations.
We? Why he is doing this? No, Im going to die. He’s going to kill me just like the rest of them
“Why are you helping me?” You asked quietly.
He smiled and handed you a spear, “We’re in an alliance and don’t plan to let you die.”
Don’t look up. The only way to get out of this to die first. No matter what. I will die first.
You could feel someone staring at you but you were too scared to look up.
Go away. Go away.
You speed walked over to one the stations and ran your fingertips over all the knifes and spears.
You picked up the hand held knife.
This one is the one.
You were thinking of the best place.
Ribs? No.. heart? Maybe..
Someone leaned over your shoulder, “Are you a hunter? That’s the best knife to kill any animal.” You jumped and turned around.
Hoseok held his hands up and backed away a little, “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you. Im a hunter so I just wanted to give you a little insight on what you were holding.”
You kept your face pointed to the ground as your smoothed your fingers across the knife.
“Do you speak?” He asked lowly.
“Whats your name?” He asked again.
“Y/n” You whispered.
“Y/n? That is a beautiful name. Im Hoseok.”
Your head sprung up at the compliment. Did he mean it?
He chuckled at your expression and stepped closer to you, “How about I teach you how to use a weapon so we stand a chance against these people?”
“Why?” You questioned.
There are so many other people he can have an alliance with, why me?
He smiled, “There’s something in you. I can’t figure it out but its there. All we need to do is get it out.”
“But why me?”
“Because I like you.” He laughed
The only thing you could think about was how you’ll never see your best friend again. You’ll never see your district again, your home.
Please remember me
You thought about what it is that you could do well.
You were good at making traps, you could trap anything really. It was like a game to you. You decided that you were going to create traps in the arena and that was going to keep you alive for as long as it would.
Once everyone went to their stations you felt someone following you.
“Yes?”You turned and questioned the stalker.
“My name is Jungkook, we’re in the same district.” He said.
Im sorry, Im not this mean I swear. I just cant let my guard down
“Yes?”You asked again raising your eyebrows.
“Your Y/n, right?”
Yes I am
He sighed and closed his eyes for a moment.
“We’re in an alliance together. Meaning that we need to work together but we cant do that if you’re just going to reply with one worded questions. This is not a laughing matter. Do you want us to die?”
“No.” You said.
He laughed and shook his head, “Unbelievable. Thats it, Im going to find someone else.”
“No wait!” You protested
He turned around and looked at you with his eyebrow raised.
“I’m sorry. I’m just.. scared.” You whispered.
“We’re all scared Y/n but the only way to some what survive this damn Game is to let someone have your back. Let me have yours.”
You were scared. So scared but you wouldn’t let anyone see that.
I promise dad
You looked around the circle, everyone had something to offer. You looked over to your right to Jin standing there. He didn’t look scared or nervous even though you were willing to bet your life he was, who wouldn’t be?
You watched how he observed every little detail of everything.
Please be good at something else
When the circle broke you walked over to your station. You were good at combat. Your dad had made you train with your older brother but that was befor-
Everything went dark. The lights in the Training Center went out. Scared, you backed yourself into a corner and waited for the lights to be turned on. Then your eyes went wide.
Scrambling to your feet you tiptoed against the wall, “Jin?… Jin?” You whispered.
“It’s Y/n, we’re in the same district. We’re allies.” You whispered again, you needed to make sure he was okay.
I can’t let him die.
“I’m over here.” You heard a whisper and walked towards the sound but before you got there you needed to make sure that it was actually Jin.
There was a riddle that was taught at the school in the district, everyone knew it that lived there.
“You will always find me in the past. I can be created in the present, but the future can never taint me. What am I?” You asked
“History.” He said.
You walked over and felt for the ground with your hands.
“Do you know what happened?” You asked, sitting down next to him.
“I shut down the power grid.” He whispered
“There was a glitch in the force field protecting the balcony up there, I took two conductors and threw one of them at the glitch and secretly slid the other one in the fire that Arsenal had made.”
He blew up the power grid..
“Did anyone see you? “
“No. I’m very good at going undetected.” He said and you could hear the smile in his voice.
