• Next Hunger Games
    Our next Hunger Games is a little different than our previous ones. Called "Battle Royale," this Hunger Games will feature one lucky class to be sent to the Hunger Games together. Mr. Dressler's honors history class tried to ignite revolution in Panem. And for their trouble, they will be sent to the arena together. Join us by making a high school junior (16-17 years old) from District 11. See the Battle Royale Subforum for more information. We aim to start in December so now's the time to start developing your character!

Ah, what a nice day for a walk in the park. It wasn’t as nice of conditions as the summer, but Kyte still did rather enjoy the autumn. And now that there was no school today and quite a bit of stress was lifted off of his shoulders, he could properly enjoy it in peace.

The fresh air was a nice change from the bedroom he hid himself in, and there was still the relief of not being picked as a tribute going through him. Now, he did feel bad for the class who got picked this time, but hey, it meant that no one from District Five would be going, particularly not Kyte, and really, it was kind of silly in his mind to start a rebellion against the Capitol and not expect to get caught. Well, anyway, he had better things to think about than the Games now, and he had all day to do it.

There was a bit of a breeze, causing him to drag the hood of his hoodie up over his head. Being his father’s, the hood was far too large for him and draped down over his face, blocking his vision, yet he continued walking. Somehow, in the ten-ish seconds there was between him being blinded by the hoodie and dragging it up from out of his line of vision, he managed to bump into a person and then walk smack into a tree. Perhaps it was just his luck, but Kyte couldn’t help wondering how that even happened in ten seconds.

And naturally, it wasn’t like this went unnoticed by others. Completely embarrassed, he felt his pale face turn pink and wondered if it was possible to just retreat back into his hoodie and hide. Perhaps he shouldn’t have gone out today after all.

There were no classes today, which Haikal enjoyed, but it meant that he’d have to come up with an excuse why he was going to be gone the entire day. Friends. That’s what he’d said: that he’d be going out with friends. Ha. Good one. He didn’t really have many friends, and the others were dead. But his parents took the excuse and that was all that mattered.

The young man was walking about, not really caring where he was going. His thoughts were drifting back to the reaping. An entire class from 11 had been reaped. Sucks for them, but their loss was his gain. It meant that he was okay for another Game and that he’d not be facing the Arena.

Haikal stopped walking and glanced about him to see a kid run into someone else and then promptly into a tree. He gave a laugh and then headed over to the klutzy boy to see if he was all right. After all, Haikal had run into trees before when he wasn’t paying attention.

“Hey. You okay?”

Sure enough, he heard a laugh, and had Kyte not been just the smallest bit thicker skinned, he might have just run out of there and went back to his bedroom to not come out for a while. Sure, getting laughed at did completely humiliate and upset him, but he was used to it by now, so the pain lessened a little. Besides, it wasn’t like a crowd was drawing around him to mock him, was there? All he heard was one person.

Hey, maybe Kyte was starting to get better at this optimism thing.

Soon, he was approached with a question. The real answer to that was ‘no’ and ‘if I curl up in a ball and hide my face, will everyone forget that I’m here?’, but he wasn’t really going to say that to whoever it was that was maybe even at least trying to be nice to him after such a display. He swallowed down the strong urge to yank his hood back over his face and without looking at the other boy at all answered a shaky, “Y-yes.” Maybe he’d leave it at that if Kyte just said he was fine? Well, Kyte could hope that would be so, anyway. It was worth a shot.

The kid refused to look at him, causing Haikal to arch a brow at him. Was he embarrassed? There was a good chance of that. Haikal probably would be too if he’d just face-planted into a tree. It wasn’t the first time he’d seen someone not paying attention run into things though, but he couldn’t help but laugh every time it happened. It never got old.

He glanced around again, noting that most people who had seen the kid’s embarrassing moment were going on with their life again: talking to other people, jogging, wandering around, or whatever. It didn’t matter to them. They didn’t care. The kid was just clumsy and unobservant and that was that. No one seemed to really care. What if the kid hadn’t been all right? He didn’t sound to sure about it though, with his voice shaking and all. Ah well. Haikal would be nice to him anyway.

Haikal cocked his head and crossed his arms over his chest. “You don’t sound too confident there. Sure you’re okay?” He gave the kid a reassuring smile, hoping that the kid would take it that Haikal wasn’t judging him too harshly.

Of course he was going to notice the stutter. Kyte had been an idiot to think that maybe he would somehow just, you know, not notice. What was Kyte supposed to say now? ‘No really, I’m fine, I just stutter every time I speak’? It was true, but it sounded completely stupid to him. Plus, he thought with a bit of bitter humour, he’d even stutter with saying that. Realizing that he had been quiet for a little bit longer than he should have been, he quickly racked his brain for an answer in panic, and all he came up with was, “I… y-yes.” Of course, it sounded no different than the first time he said it, so the other probably wasn’t going to believe him, but what else could he say?

He allowed himself a quick little peek at who he was talking to, but then focused his eyes back on the ground again not long after. At least the other boy seemed genuine, with a smile erasing just a little bit of Kyte’s anxiety, but it wasn’t enough for him to completely forget what had just happened in front of everyone. Rationally, he knew that it shouldn’t be this big of a deal to him, but it was.

The kid was quiet for a moment. Two moments. Three? Did he not know what to say? Haikal’s other brow went up. Oh come on. Sure the kid was smaller than him (Kind of a nice thing actually when most people he dealt with were a lot taller, fitter, stronger, and whatever than him.) but he really shouldn’t be afraid of Haikal. It wasn’t like he was actually scary or anything. It wasn’t like he was some Career who had sauntered up to him and was now making fun of him. If he was, Haikal would see why the kid was hesitating. Or maybe that’s just how the kid was.

The pale-skinned boy finally replied. Still seemed uncertain to Haikal, but he mentally brushed it away. If the kid said he was fine then he was fine.

“Okay then. Maybe next time, you should pay attention a little bit more, eh?”

He uncrossed his arms, shoved his hands into his pockets, and smiled once more. If the kid was fine, then he should probably keep going. But go where? He had been wandering after all, with nothing really important to do. Since he was here, why not strike up a conversation with the kid.

“Name’s Haikal. You?”

A little rush of embarrassment came through him again as the other boy joked. Did he really need to bring that up again? Kyte reminded himself that he probably wasn’t doing it out of malice, and just to be polite, forced a small, rather fake chuckle out of his mouth. This was all the bleach-haired boy would say on the matter, however, as he’d like very much to just move on and pretend it never happened.

“K-K-Kyte,” he managed to spit his name out despite the stutter coming on strong, much to his own annoyance. Luckily, the other boy only said his first name, so Kyte didn’t have to try to say his last name too. One syllable was bad enough, he didn’t want to try to say three when he didn’t have to. This guy didn’t know about why he was stuttering so much, and so he’d like to keep his speaking to a minimum in order to keep things that way. Haikal didn’t seem the kind (well, from what little bit Kyte saw of him anyway) to bully him because of a speech impediment, but he figured it was best to try to keep it quiet just in case. It was a habit that had been ingrained into his brain at a young age; Kyte just wanted to stop being made fun of, that was all.

There it was again. The kid stuttered out his name, instead of saying it properly. A thought popped into Haikal’s head. What if he wasn’t scared? What if he actually did stutter? Whoops. Haikal then would have judged the kid wrongly, but the kid, Kyte still seemed rather timid. He’d not even really looked over at Haikal. The possibility that Kyte was still afraid and embarrassed was stuck in Haikal’s head, but the fact that the kid may actually have a stutter kept his mind open a little bit more.

“Well then Kyte, nice to mee’cha.”

He'd not judge, or at least try to not judge Kyte if the kid did stutter. He’d have to pay attention to the kid’s words to make sure he understood everything. Haikal would not want to make him repeat everything. He’d not want to repeat everything either. Nope.

Well, it didn’t seem like Haikal was going to make fun of him for his stutter right now. That was always a good sign, right? That didn’t mean that Kyte wasn’t still going to be on his guard, but at least he could relax it now a little. Most people that went after him for it would have done so by now, or at least, that was always how it was for him. Maybe this would be a rare case, but for some reason, he couldn’t help but feel that it wasn’t going to be. Probably. Hopefully.

It looked like the other was now dropping the topic of what just happened, for which Kyte was fairly grateful. He figured that it would be impolite not to respond, so he answered with a, “Y-you t-too.” He forced a quick, tiny little smile in hopes that it would make him seem a little more friendly.

Unsure of what to do now, Kyte just shoved his hands in his pockets and waited to see if Haikal was going to say anything else.
