Clove

"Hey, guys." Marvel says, pulling the mask to his Star Lord costume up.

"Hey," Glimmer and I say in unison.

"Hey," Finnick says, approaching us. "Snow White, Cinderella, and Star Lord."

"Hey, Prince Eric." I say.

He nods, smiling. "Very good."

"So, Glimmer," Marvel starts. "How is everything?"

Glimmer takes a bite of a chip and looks at Marvel. "Good," she swallows the chip. "You?"

"Great."

"Where's your brother?"

"He should be here." The boy furrows his brows.

I look around, my eyes stopping at a corner, and see Cato talking to Gale. He looks amazing as Indiana Jones. I think as I stare at him.

Gale's dressed as Jason Voorhees, but he doesn't have the mask on. Finnick is Prince Eric while Annie is Ariel. Johanna is Freddy Krueger, also doesn't have the mask on. It feels like there's going to be a real-life sequel to Freddy Vs. Jason tonight.Katniss and Peeta are Luke Skywalker and Princess Laya. I'm Snow White and Glimmer's Cinderella. Cato is Indiana Jones and Marvel is Star Lord from Guardians of The Galaxy.

Cato walks over to us. "Excuse me, Miss, but I do believe this belongs to you." He says, holding an apple out to me.

I smile. "Oh, no, I'm not falling for that."

"Come on," a smile stretches out on his face. "You know what they say: an apple a day keeps the doctor away."

"They also say: don't believe everything you hear."

"Well then." He laughs.

"Alright, guys." Finnick says into the microphone. "Let's get this Halloween dance started!" The crowd cheers as he starts the music, a upbeat instrumental song.

"So tell me, what's a beautiful dame doing in a crowded place like this?" Cato asks.

"I got bored and decided to look for my prince." I joke. "What about a dangerous fella like you? Aren't you supposed to be doing something exciting right now?"

"Eh," he shrugs. "Thought I'd do something different for a change."

"We all try new things, don't we?" I laugh.

"We sure do." He winks then walks off to Glimmer. "Would you care to dance with me after this song is over?" I hear him say over the music.

Glimmer giggles, "Sure."

"Even if it's with Indiana Jones?" He tips his hat with a wink.

"I don't care who it is," she laughs.

Marvel walks up to Glimmer. "Glimmer, do you care to" -he looks over at Cato, whom is now taking Glimmer's hand- "dance- oh... um- I didn't know you were dancing with-"
