"STARFIRE!!!!! WAAAAAKE UP!"
"Oh just shut up. You don't need to yell in my ear. If I lose the games because you almost popped my eardrum, it's your fault." I grumble.
"Sorry. We have our traning sessions today. You'd better get going." He laughs.
I roll out of bed and get dressed. Then I head to the lounge of the aircraft. Right. All the tributes get 4 days of training. I guess that's enough to improve my skills. Sort of. But I don't think I'll make it off the gold starlinator area alive. That's the worst part of the actual games.
"Starfire, Marth, can we talk to you guys for a minute?" Asks Thorn from behind, followed by Flare.
"I think you guys have very similar features as us." Says Flare. "We just wanted to know if you two knew the term for the specific type of starling."
"We don't know. We're going to find out for ourselves." Says Marth.
Then I hear the captain's voice booming over the loudspeaker. "Attention all passengers: we will be landing at the Vidalia Airport in just a few minutes. Please stay seated."
As soon as we landed, Marina lead us to the dorm where everyone that is helping with the Starlinator Games. The building was huge, with a glass balcony at the top, and a glass elevator. Wow. My bedroom is on floor 4. Almost this entire building is made from glass. Suddenly, Marth walks into my room.
"This place is so luxurious. Just look at this place. I haven't seen anything prettier than this." He says. "Right. But what are you here for anyway?" I ask.
"Oh. just came to say hi. Remember to prepare for training tomorrow."
"Speaking of training, do you have any experience with melee or range weapons that are not guns or anything like that?"
"Not at all. You?"
"Nope. I don't think any of the tributes have any experience either."
Maybe I'm wrong. Firebit, Sparragon, and Reptice train their starlings in their community planets. It's against the rules, but they do it anyway. They have a trick to not getting busted by King Stormie. If they were busted, they would be shot in front of the citizens of Vidalia.
The next day, we head to the training centre. I took a deep breath, and got ready for my training.
