• 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!

Whit stared at the man blankly for a few more seconds before he spoke up:
”Uh… sorry, can you repeat that?” the other man rolled his eyes irritated and shook his head before he decided to respond to his question:
“Did you not hear me or were you not paying attention?” the man asked, arms crossed across his chest in defiance. ”This is why they shouldn’t send kids here…” his tone was that of someone who was just fed up with their job, but Whit didn’t let it affect him because he knew it was important for his training to be there. Of course, taking care of animals was not the same as with people, but seeing how someone who was just studying to be a nurse could not simply take care of patients before they were ready they made them practice on the animals at the shelter. It was the closest nursing students would get to taking care of a patient before they actually started at the job, and as someone who wanted to be the best nurse there was Whitman Valium was more than willing to do the job.

The problem, of course, laid on the fact that the shelter employees weren’t exactly all too friendly despite the fact that the nursing students were doing their job which they clearly didn’t care for much. The older boy seemed to expect for Whit to simply walk away but instead he simply adjusted his glasses and waited for further instructions. Or at least for the boy to repeat the instructions so they could be on the same page.
”Where do you need me?” he asked, the older boy grunted and pointed towards the back.
”Just go take care of the goats, man, that’s where you’ll be less on the way.” he said dismissively, but Whit didn’t move because not all of his questions had been answered, he shifted his weight from one foot to another and waited very well aware that the older boy had heard his question which he had missed the answer to. There was another eye roll and a grunt, but eventually he answered: ”You literally just feed them and clean after them. If someone comes ask about them… I guess you can come get me.” he said knowing that very few people cared about the rescue goats.

Whitman didn’t care though, he was satisfied with the answer so he walked towards the pen where they kept the three rescue goats. He wasn’t really surprised they only had three since he figured most people would rather adopt a cat or a dog, but he was glad that they had other animals for those who were allergic to dogs and cats which were very common allergies. Unsure of what to do, he opened the gate to the pen and approached a big gray goat which had a scar over its eye, he offered his hand out and the animal came over to smell him. Whit smiled, aware that he would have to wash his hands vigorously after the encounter, but at the time being he didn’t really care. The bell around the goat’s name told him her name was Leila, he smiled as he ran his hand by her neck trying to gain her trust. The animal seemed to react at his touch as she saw on the ground seemingly unconcerned, Whit smiled and continued with the petting.

Maybe today wouldn’t be too bad after all…

Corduroy had finally decided on it. He would go and adopt himself a pet. He had been saving his money up for supplies, and he was so excited to go and get himself a nice puppy. He had read somewhere that puppies helped with depression, and coupled with the fact he had always loved animals, Cord was more than ready to get one of his very own.

The young man walked into the pet shelter. Immediately, sounds of small kittens and large dogs entered his head. He saw supplies everywhere he looked, but no fluffy animals. He could hear them, but where were they?

Cord found a woman who looked like she worked at the store. She looked to be young; really young to be honest. She couldn't have been very much older than he was. He asked her where the puppies were, and she pointed him down a hallway, and to his right. He thanked her kindly, and set off.

As he walked down the hallway, it seemed as if the sounds of dogs barking and playing were getting further and further away, but Cord just shrugged it off. It was probably just a trick, and that the sound in the shelter was just messed up in some way. He continued walking, excited to find himself a companion.

Corduroy opened up the door he was sent to, and he didn't see puppies. If they were in fact puppies, though, they sure were deformed. They had four legs, tiny horns, and they made the strangest noise Cord had ever heard. There was another boy in the room, and Cord figured he could ask him what was happening. "Do know what animals these are?"

As Whit petted Leila, he noticed the other two goats approach him possibly wanting some of his attention as well. He smiled at them and let go of Leila who bleated in response, Whit couldn't help but chuckle about the situation, if he had three hands then everything would be easier. But in a way this was a lesson about being able to take care of the patients he was going to have, right? He only had two hands, so he couldn't stretch himself too far or else things would not be able to provide the adequate care to all of them. He wondered silently if that was one of the lessons that he was meant to learn by being at the animal shelter, but he didn't know the answer.

He was so distracted with the animals that he didn't quite notice the other boy approaching the pen, that is until he spoke. Whit jumped slightly surprised by the sudden interruption and turned to look at the other boy. He was shorter than Whit was, and he had dark hair and thick eyebrows, he was very common looking really nothing really standing out to Whitman. His question was, perhaps, the oddest thing about the whole situation. Apparently whoever this kid was, he was not familiar with the animals Whit was standing next to.

"These?" he asked patting Leila's head which earned him a couple of bleats from the other two goats. "They are goats..." he stopped unsure of what else to say, then remembering he was there to work he added rather quickly: "Can I help you, by any chance?" he smiled kindly, trying to seem inviting.
