• 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!

Eli felt strange being in the Capitol again. His clothes were different from anything else and avoxes who knew him from before watched him with sidelong curiosity. There were occasional, almost knowing glances between himself and the District Ten Champion. They screamed without words: 'we know why he bought you.'

Except they were not right at all. They didn't know why Sebastian bought him. Elihu did not even really know some days, but he knew that it was not for that. Sebastian, for his hawk-like regard of the man, did not seem to feel for him in more than a protective manner. He certainly did not treat him as inhuman or as property, but Eli was becoming certain it had something to do with his reveal of what he had been before he had his tongue ripped out. He had been more distant lately, almost cold.

Not that he ever dreamed they would actually be more than maybe friends, but the effect the Capitol had on Sebastian was far from endearing. He almost wished his function as an avox to him was as clear cut as they thought. It would have made it easier to deal with, at least.

He had ventured away to the roof for some... much needed privacy. Most were downstairs or off at parties, celebrating the near paramount end of the Games. He did not expect in any way to be followed and he was not great at paying attention to surroundings, however. It shouldn have been no surprise that someone was watching.

Sebastian felt the tug of guilt of him like a chain on his ankles, dragging and heavy on his very spirit. It was an unfamiliar feeling. Guilt for those he had killed? Rare - different - long dismissed. They were dead and all of them had either willingly gone into the Games knowing they would die, or were beyond deserving of their deaths. In at least one case, it was both for him.

No, this guilt was for something far more real for him.

His emotions regarding the avox had shifted the moment that Eli had told him what he had done in the Capitol. Therapy? It was too convenient to him - too much like it could be a set up. He made Eli remain in the training center, watched like a hawk by himself or Twist.

Sebastian delighted in the early death of his own tribute. It gave him precious time to find information on the Blackburn family. Fascinating really - they were all doctors and hurt for nothing as far as he saw. That theory did not hold any water now. He dared not actually contact any of them - too afraid that the Capitol would believe he was trying to pass messages between them.

His expendability was... debatable. What was worse was that he was close to others who were just that. Expendable.

He had to settle for trust. Unsure what else to do, Sebastian let himself retreat onto the familiar roof with a bottle in his hand and the careful intention to stay away from the edge, even if he knew there was a shield there already.

He remained in the darkness, slumped and occasionally taking a drink as he considered what to do. He didn't drink enough to get even tipsy by the time he noticed a tall, dark-haired figure slipping up onto the roof. The familiar movements and the hair could only be one person.

For a moment, Sebastian remained in his corner. How did he explain? He had to - it was not like he had been treating Eli well, especially here. It was not like he was making his life hell either, but he had been ignoring him when he wasn't keeping a close eye on his whereabouts. But he had to be careful - do it in a way that it would be hard for anyone watching to see.

He stood up, approaching the man slowly and loudly enough to be heard. "Hey, Eli?" He asked, moving closer, but not closing any great distance between them. "You all right?"

A bittersweet sense of homesickness settled in his chest as he gazed out at the familiar horizon line. The feeling of being here ached, warm and crackling in his chest. He decided, vaguely, to talk to Sebastian about staying in Ten next time. The temptation of seeing his family breathed and grasped within him.

But then, he realized, maybe that was part of why Sebastian watched so carefully. Because he knew what to expect as far as Eli's temptation was concerned.

Elihu practically jumped out of his skin at the sound of a voice coming up behind him.

He turned at the familiar voice and paused as he caught sight of Sebastian coming up behind him, carrying what looked like some kind of bottle in his hand. He frowned, a little concerned at the image. Sebastian did not drink often, he knew, but it seemed that any time he did that it was only a matter of time before it was very clearly too much. Still, his words were not slurred, so that was good. Maybe he could stop him before he did something completely stupid.

Fine. He signed in the half-darkness, making the gesture bigger so that it would be legible in it. You? He asked in turn, eyebrow quirking before indicating the bottle in his hand.

Sebastian's eyebrows quirked upwards at the gestured. He glanced down at the bottle in his hand. He took off the cap and drank a sip before holding it out to Eli. "I'm all right. Just taking advantage of the many opportunities here while I can."

Sebastian did not like drinking outside of the Capitol. But then, he didn't really need it outside of it either.

"You can too, if you like?" He offered, considering the man before him as he spoke.

Eli took the bottle from Sebastian's hands and inspected it carefully. He hadn't had a drink in months - not since Sebastian had bought him. This wasn't for the lack of ability to get it, really. Sebastian could probably supply it, despite being underage... But it simply didn't interest him.

Drinking had not been out of place for him when he lived here. Sure, he was no perpetual drunk and he was far less enamored with partying as some of his fellow Capitolites were then... But he still drank. There was something that was very much about home that attached itself to the idea. And maybe the bottle Sebastian bore was nothing close to what kind of alcohol he was used to drinking, but Eli still pulled away from it and shook his head.

Thanks, but no thanks. He gestured. How's the girl doing? He asked, indicating the one from Ten who was still alive... even if she wasn't Sebastian's tribute, he probably had some idea of whether she was doing all right by Twist's standard or not.

Sebastian shrugged at the question before reverting to using his hands to speak himself. Sure, he was using only one of them - but he knew enough that conveying about what he meant with one hand was still pretty close to the reality, even if he still moved fairly slow in comparison to Eli.

She's doing okay. Twist seems to think she could work. Maybe.

Sebastian couldn't say he had spoken to the kid and there were still enough people alive that there was no real guarantee. The only really good thing about this Games so far was that he was mildly appreciative that he did not, in fact, have a completely useless arena.
