I was more scared for Prim than I was for myself. I held my breath as Effie Trinket yelled across the square, "Primrose Everdeen!" My heart stopped. My brain quit working. Next thing I knew I was running towards her screaming, "I Volunteer! I Volunteer as tribute!" Effie shot me a startled glance... "A volunteer?" Effie whispered in shock. Prim raced towards me. "Katniss! Katniss!" she shouted, beginning to cry. My best friend Gale ran up and grabbed her from behind, pulling her back into the crowd with him. I was stuck in a daze as I walked up to the stage. Effie turned to me and asked, "What's your name dear?" My eyes met hers and she smiled at me innocently. "Katniss Everdeen." I mumbled out.
