Day 4 - Azul, Athena, and Teal
Azul, sick and tired of being toyed with by a lower district, was ready to hunt down Athena under any circumstance. Teal was just happy to still be alive. With Rivalta gone, there was one less tribute to worry about killing for now. A silver parachute fell upon Azul with a serrated whip inside.
“Let’s go, Teal. From what I know of the little bitch, she’ll be going back to familiar ground. We need to get to San Marco Square.” Azul said. Nodding, Teal followed the District 4 girl outside and raced to the square before the water beat them to it.
Athena had taken apart her trap and taken shelter in the nearby item shop in the square. She set up another trap just inside for anyone who opened the door to the shop. She knew someone would be after her soon, and she was as prepared as she could be.
As the career girls approached the item shop, Teal decided to go in first. Opening the door, she was immediately met with the barbed net. Teal wiggled too much and became completely wrapped inside of it, screaming as the net dug into her skin and made her bleed.
Athena heard all the screaming and knew the girls had found her. Thinking quickly, she took her grenade and sent it down the stairs and right into Teal’s lap. The girl stopped screaming and stared shakily at the explosive in her lap. “Az-“ She couldn’t finish her sentence before the grenade blew her to bits, covering the sound of her canon.
Azul waited outside in the pouring rain, cracking her whip against the wet ground. “Come on little girl, come out and show the nation just how brave you are against a bigger bitch than you!”
Athena crept down the stairs and whispered “marco.” She saw the body heat emanating off of Azul as she paced outside. Taking a deep breath and gripping her Rapier tighter, she walked outside and the two girls began circling each other.
Azul was the first to attack, cracking her whip as Athena jumped and dodged the bladed weapon. She stepped on it as it rested and lurched Azul forward, slamming the handle of her Rapier into the district 4 girls face. If it wasn’t protected by the mask, Azul definitely would have been in trouble. Shekneed Athena hard in the stomach, pushing her backwards and onto the ground.
“You got me once, bitch, but not again.” Azul rubbed the jewel on her mask three times, making it glow and freezing Athena in place. The young girl stared helplessly as her body stopped taking orders. “Five minutes is definitely all I need for your ass.” Azul said, coiling her whip around Athena’s neck and dragging the poor, bleeding district 8 girl across the square and to the closest canal of water.
Athena left a trail of blood in the sopping wet cobblestones as her neck bled out. Azul made it to her destination, staring in the water with a crazed look in her face. “And this is where your time comes to an end. I sure hope you enjoyed yourself.” But before Azul could toss the young girl into the water, Athena had regained some movement in her Rapier hand, sending the blade across Azul’s thigh and cutting it deep and making the girl scream in pain.
Azul uncoiled her whip in a fit of rage and kicked Athena into the water but not before she grabbed part of the whip, sending Azul’s hand into the water with her.
Blood immediately soiled the light grey waters as the piranha mutts had their way with the quickly dying district 8 girl and Azul’s hand. If it were possible for her to scream louder, it definitely showed. She pulled her hand out as Athena’s canon fired. The piranha’s paid no attention to her whip but her hand was another story. It was gashed, eaten, and she was missing her pinky and middle fingers. Shaking in pain, shock, and anger, Azul stood up and limped quickly to the item shop and up the stairs where she tried desperately to stop the bleeding but had no bandages to do so. She only had to pray the sponsors were on her side.
She was so insanely angry, she almost thought her name was Azula.
