Tyson Jacobs waited for silence. He didn't give any flashy introduction. He simply wen to the girl's bowl, plucked a name, and leaned into the microphone.

"Elena Howell." He said. He looked around, and as she took the stage, he leaned in and said,

"Any volunteers?"

Reese chuckled to herself as some girl named Elena took the stage. She was sitting in a chair with two Peacekeepers on either side of her, no less. She stood, her 12 year old insane mind running through possibilities.

This was it. This was how she was going to make them PAY.

"I volunteer!" she called sweetly, and watched as Elena looked relieved and practically flung herself from the stage, while Reese took it with a sweet smile.

She didn't bother waiting for the escort to ask her name. As he leaned down towards her to ask, she said with a smile, "I'm Amareese Lerc. You can call me Reese!" she said, all too cheerful about the whole thing.

Matthew Grayson sat quietly on the train that was docked in district 12. He popped a few grapes in his mouth and stared out of the window, his mind flashing back to his eighteen years he spent here in District 12, until he was chosen as a tribute for the Hunger Games.

He always needed a drive, something to push him, test him. After winning the Hunger Games, that challenge became getting one of his tributes to win. He noticed the crowds start to cheer and knew the District 12 tributes were chosen. He sat back and anxiously awaited to meet them.

Tyson Jacobs smiled and patted Reese's back, then went over to the male's bowl, digging around for a name and yanking one out.

"Now, as for the boys....JASON PETERS!" Tyson yelled, and Jason took the stage, eyeing Reese carefully.

"Volunteers?" he asked; with no answer, he led the two into the Justice Building to say goodbye to their loved ones and then board the trains.

Reese gave the Escort yet another sweet smile, in her head rolling her eyes at her own behavior. Honestly, the things she did to murder people. She smiled at Jason, shaking his hand. He eyed her carefully again, and she tossed back her hair and skipped off.

When she rounded the corner, Tyson Jacobs following to take her to the room where she would depart from her loved ones, she held his hand and when he left her in there, she glared at her reflection in the mirror. Her curly locks were in ringlets, her face clean and mark free. She wore a nice blue dress, plain in design but flattering. She despised the entire look, but knew it was necessary.

No one came to say goodbye. That was fine; she didn't expect it to be any other way. Eventually, she was lead to the trains, and she boarded with her eyes cast down and a sweet expression.

Matthew stood up to greet the tributes as they stepped onto the train. They were introduced as Jason Peters and Amareese Lerc. Matthew smiled as he greeted them each with a handshake, and he examined them. "I am Matthew Grayson, your mentor for the hunger games." he said with a smile.

He had actually secretly hoped for older tributes, but he would make do with what he had.
Out of the two, 'Reese' was the one who fascinated him. She looked very sweet and innocent, cute even, in her little blue dress and the way she was holding hands with Jason. It suprised Matthew to learn that she had volunteered to participate and he eyed her curiously. "Well help yourselves to some of the food, you must be hungry, and if you have any questions...that's what I'm here for." he said as sat down again.

Reese watched the mentor carefully, still wearing the sweet smile, and shyly looking away as he examined them. "Hello," she murmured as he introduced himself, not quite meeting his gaze. Jason's hand tightened slightly, for what reason she didn't know. He looked very skittish, and was constantly eyeing her carefully.

Perhaps he knew of the Asylum Girl? She was more viewed as an urban legend 'round these parts, a story parents told their children to keep them in check, a tale around the campfire. But she was as real as they came, and she would make them all realize it.

"I'm Reese...and this is Jason," she said, although she was sure he already knew this; when he explained about the food, Jason slid his fingers out of her small hand and went to inspect it. It smelled wonderful; what with the food she was fed in the asylum, it was almost intoxicating.

Instead of instantly going to it though, she watched as Jason got a bit on a plate and went to eat it in one of the chairs as Matthew sat as well. She trounced down in the seat next to him, elbows on the arm-rest, her chin resting in her hands as she looked at him with her large brown eyes.

"Mr. Grayson...how long do we have until the 'Games?" she asked, putting on her best show. To any who didn't recognize the red flags of her sickeningly sweet behavior, she would appear to be slightly frightened about the idea of going into the arena. Should he ask about her volunteering...she'd simply state that Elena had been a friend and she couldn't bear to let her go in.

"Good to meet you Jason..." he said before turning his head to Reese, "...and Reese." He watched as Jason went straight for the food, in fact it reminded him of when he was chosen as a tribute. Reese however, made no such move, instead she came to sit down near Matthew.

He looked curiously at her as she sat down, placed her chin in her hands, and looked up at him. She seemed slightly frightened as she asked her question and Matthew felt sorry for this 'sweet' little girl who revealed (when he asked about her volunteering for the games) that she volunteered because Elena was her friend and that she couldn't bear to let her enter the games.

"Well...we still have time...mostly in order to get sponsors, which will help you two greatly...there is the opening ceremony, interviews, training and other public appearances to help you with that..." he said as he smiled at Reese, "just please...take it seriously...it could give you an edge in the games." He took a drink from the nearby table. "Your escort and stylist will help as well, you two should be meeting them soon."

Reese nodded, then looked over at what Jason was eating. Some sort of rice with soup on top, or so it seemed. She looked at Matthew for a second, then towards the food, wondering if she could continue to lay on the sugar or just go get some food. The small rumble in her tummy told her to eat--she couldn't murder those who deserved it on an empty stomach, after all.

She smiled at Matthew and thanked him, then slid off the chair and went and got a plate. It took all of her self-control to not pile it high with everything she saw; instead, she took a small spoonful of each of the main dishes, leaving the deserts and appetizers for later. Plenty of time for those.

She went and sat down across from Jason, attempting to make friends, mostly ignoring Matthew. She was a good actress, but if she focused on more than one person at a time, things would fall through the cracks. He looked at her suspiciously, and she took a bite of the same rice and soup that he was eating--and was almost floored by the flavor. She took a minute or two to attack her plate, then remembered her manners and straightened, clearing her throat a little.

Jason cracked his first smile. "Good, huh?" he asked; she nodded, her cheeks slightly pink with the embarrassment of ill-used manners. Jason waved it off with his fork, before pointing at her with it, an eyebrow raised. "Volunteering for your friend. That was really sweet of you," he commented.

"I think I have a better chance than she does of making it out alive, that's all," Reese returned with a shrug, still eating although she slowed down. Jason grunted in return before standing, taking his now emptied plate back towards the food cart to get some more. Reese looked over at Matthew--he talked of interviews and public appearances, which she knew were to gain sponsors.

How many sponsors will I have when they find out about my....mental condition? she thought wryly, a grim little smile on her lips for a moment before she continued eating. Part of her wondered if they would find out about that and expose her during the interviews. That was fine; she really didn't mind, although if she had it her way, she'd continue playing the role of a tooth-achingly sweet twelve year old who cares for a friend. Of course, if they asked about Elena, she could always tear up and begin to cry, blubbering some nonsense about her.

Not much could go wrong.

OOC: I finished her history. Twisted Evil

Matthew smiled slightly as the the two kids sat next to each other and started talking as they ate. Of course he remembered how good the food tasted when he was chosen for the games and didn't mind the initial lack of manners.

"What mental condition?" he asked with surprise, not knowing that she really had one. He wasn't to sure how to answer the rest of the question, a mental condition could be a curse or a blessing when trying to gain sponsors, but he would have to know more if he was to help her get as much sponsors as possible.

OOC: Sorry I took so long to post, and for the shortness :3
