• 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!

Pepper had decided it a good time to go off somewhere in District Six to explore a little more - just a little better than she usually did anyway. She had been quite intriqued when she had learned about the new additions to District Six that had been added. The sections of District Ten that were added... she wondered if any of it would be added onto. Some of the pastures probably would be added onto, once more money was put out. It would probably be another year before they saw any real buildings being put up. She wondered if she would be alive to see any of it - or perhaps dead already from the way her family was.

For now, though, Pepper had taken the day out to explore in one of the few houses along the pasture, slipping behind some yellow tape as she hoisted the large, heavy metal door open. She went inside, looking around curiously. It was dark - but the windows did cast some light inside. Just not any electricity, really. She supposed that was to be expected for a rundown old slaughterhouse. The meat hooks were still up, dangling from above. It was cold, but she couldn't tell if the cold was from the fact that it was January or simply because it was meant to be a place where things were kept very cold.

If there was no electricity, she didn't expect it to be because this was kept cold by it too... No, that wouldn't have made much sense, would it? It felt... different here. Creepy, more like. She supposed it would be different if she was with other people - or if it was bustling with workers like it was once. But that wouldn't be the case now - would it?

Len Kinlan was very, very bored at the moment. It was one of those very rare times of his when he had absolutely nothing to do, having already done everything he could. That meant no homework, no studies, and no otherwise means of entertainment or even occupation. He had to admit that these facts left him feeling rather confused and unsure of what to do with himself. So, after a good five or so minutes of sitting cross-legged on his bed in thought, he swung his legs over the side and shuffled over to the other end of the room to grab his coat out of his closet. It was adventure time.

Without a single word of notice, he left the house, hood drawn up over his head, and the winter’s stinging bite on his no doubt pinkish cheeks. For a while, he just wandered aimlessly, taking in the sights and enjoying the quiet. He took a few new turns he never had before, and was quick to end up in the middle of a place he’d never been. Rather than being nervous like a normal person generally would, this excited him.

After a few more minutes of wandering, he was met with a new sight. An abandoned slaughterhouse, Len realized as he got close enough to it. Why not check that out?

He tentatively swung the creaky door open, peering inside. When he was met with the isolation that he had expected, he took a few quick steps in and closed the door with a soft click. He let his eyes wander around the place as he wandered around the entrance. It seemed that everything was as it had been before this place was abandoned. In fact, if it wasn’t starting to wither away in it’s own looks, no one would have known the place had been abandoned in the first place.

The place had proved to be quite interesting to look around. To think that there were once people working here…quite fascinating, really. This wasn’t somewhere he would like to work, but he could still imagine the rush of people coming in and out day after day. It was a few minutes later when a few soft noises made him stop dead on the spot. For a few seconds, he thought he had just imagined it. But then, while he was still standing on the spot, he heard it again. Quietly, he followed the noise as he went along, trying to find its source. Once Len got close enough, he could make out the sound of footsteps. Apparently, he wasn’t alone.

Peering around the corner, Len confirmed his suspicious. There stood a girl of seemingly around his age. While he was quick and quiet, he had a feeling that he wouldn’t avoid contact with her forever, so why put off the inevitable. Maybe even for these quick seconds he could let himself indulge in his more childish side, the one pushed away from him so many times. Despite nearly rolling his eyes at his own antics, he poked his head out further from behind the wall after making sure her back was turned to him, and spoke.

“Boo,” he called out softly, a small hint of a smile on his face.

Pepper didn't jump. No, Pepper was trained too much to really jump from the sound of another person coming. No, that alerted them to where she was usually and always just ended up frustrating her. Either way, it wasn't good for her.

Pepper, instead, was the kind of girl that pulled out the knife at her belt. She flicked it open and slid it into her fist so that the blade stuck out of the bottom of it. She held it away from her, but tried not to hold it out openly so someone else could see it. She ventured, perhaps dangerously, "Sorry, I don't like games. So don't play with me."

If she could come up with a reason to stab someone right about now, that might actually be quite a satisfying event.

The reaction that he earned from the other girl was not one that he had been expecting. He had to admit, this caught him off guard a little bit. Normally, his little exclamation would have earned a yelp, or at least a surprised expression from its recipient. But there wasn’t a single hint of surprise out of this girl. This was a little saddening for his efforts, but still interesting. It seemed that she had well trained ears for this. That was always interesting, and left Len to wonder, how so? Regardless, he pushed those thoughts out of his mind for a later time and focused on what was at hand. So, he hadn’t surprised her, big deal. But still, there was no need for her to be so rude to him. Didn’t this girl know that rudeness wouldn’t get her anywhere but in trouble? That was a shame, really. He was hoping that any company he had was going to be friendly. Well, life wasn’t a wish-granting machine, so time to get over it and deal. Not like he had a choice, anyway! At least there was worse that he could be thrown at during this time. This was only one person, and he could be confronted with multiple instead. He almost shuddered at the thought, though just managed to keep himself under control. Three people? Or even more? A nightmarish thought.

Len propped his arm up against the wall as he further emerged from its shelter, and he then gave the other ‘explorer’ a scrutinizing look. The floorboards creaked under his weight as he shifted positions to lean against the upright surface. What business did she have here, anyway? Just out for a little journey, or something more? Either way, Len didn’t really give it much of a care. He would be out of here soon, and likely never see this other again. Besides, there wasn’t much use in learning about someone with a reaction like hers. Friendly acquaintances would be a bit of a stretch, judging by this first reaction. Well, too bad for her.

“Oh, wow,” he said, throwing his hands up in the air in mock-surrender as he propped himself up now with his right shoulder. “Someone’s feeling just a little bit feisty today, or so it seems. What has made you so wound up? If, of course, you don’t mind me asking. I don’t mean to intrude, after all.”

Pepper rolled her eyes. "Sorry, I'm not exactly friendly." She nearly hissed through her teeth with a clenched, tense jaw there.

"What do you expect of someone lurking in an old slaughterhouse?" Maybe she was here to marvel at where a ton of dead animal carcasses once were, relishing in the blood because that was as close as she could get to the real thing. He didn't know. After all, she could be a Career who just couldn't get out to Ten. She wasn't, of course, that kind of Career, but so it went.

“No kidding,” he muttered at the girl’s early response. Still, he tried to stay polite while overcoming the impending sense of annoyance that this girl had brought out in him. Really, Len had only been asking. Was she determined to make an enemy out of everyone? “Though you know, a little kindness can go a long way. Or, perhaps, in the other way around, being so rude to everyone could get you in a load of trouble you can’t get out of. You never know, really.” He faked innocence with this last statement, giving her a look that said otherwise. Honestly, did this girl have any sense in her? Where was being rude going to get her in life? In fact, it could even get her killed, if it was used to the extremity! Really! Was it just that hard?! Rather frustrating, seeing as Len never actually did say anything offensive to her. Unless one was sensitive enough as to think ‘boo’ and the attempt to frighten them to be an insult. Well, maybe that was the case. But if it were so, wouldn’t she be acting a little differently? And since when did he become a psychologist? Enough of these thoughts, really!

“Well, hey, I myself am lurking in an old slaughterhouse as well,” Len had been quick to reminded her, raising an eyebrow at her words and giving a shrug. What was that supposed to mean? “And I pride myself in having nothing wrong with me, thank you very much and have a nice day, please don’t respond to that, that was rhetorical. But you, on the other hand? I’m not so sure. Really, what have I done?”

Huh, that was probably the least polite thing he had ever said out loud in his life, he had realized a little while after the words had escaped his lips before he could stop them. While it wasn’t a whole lot of everything, in fact, what he had said was just barely offensive in comparison with the plenty of other things that one could and probably would have (if they were not him, of course) said, but he had to congratulate himself on that. He wasn’t just being a mask of politeness anymore. Thank goodness, because that could be frustrating. Either way, he had his hands up on either side in question, before dropping them down and stuffing them in his pockets.

Pepper rolled her eyes, clear annoyance emanating off of her in nigh literal tidal waves.

"Sorry, but I am made to deal with what I must go through in life. That apparently means mostly dealing with idiots who say they have nothing wrong with them, but still turn around and decide it's a smart idea to sass out a girl who carries a knife."

Oh, and the Arena, sooner or later. She had a good few years still in her and her last named doomed her to it in a way she could never escape, no matter how much she wished she could.

"Lucky for you, you aren't worth stabbing." Her knife was still out, mostly on reflex than out of anything else, really, so she flicked it closed and tucked it away. This was probably about as close as Pepper could get to a gesture of kindness, at least in this particular moment.
