Re: The Hunger Games [RP]
Keiru&Amelia Kozaka,District One/Christian Wright,District Nine/Brandon Lockhart,District Ten
Amelia had shot forward, standing in front of Keiru as if to protect him as all hell broke loose and Ashley and Jeremy both tried to get at Keiru, both however being prevented from doing so. Keiru didn't even move, gazing without emotion at Ashley, not even reacting when she tried to throw a knife at him, nor when Jeremy tried to punch him. His gaze flickered to Caitlyn for a second, a frown appearing on his face for a split second as his mind registered her reaction, before it disappeared and returned to an emotionless one as he turned back towards Ashley, though he was paying more attention to the Peacekeeper several feet from him.
"Now, explain to me why the hell you would shoot an arrow at an defenseless little girl."
Keiru didn't respond for several seconds, before he folded his arms over his chest. "This is a place for tributes training. Not some place for a defenseless little girl."
Keiru continued, pausing for a small moment to gather his thoughts. "You were lucky it was me, giving nothing but a warning, rather than another tribute, who would have had worse intentions."
Keiru's gaze turned towards the other tributes, whose attention was on him, his gaze going over Matt, though he narrowed his eyes as he looked at the tribute, before his gaze continued to Brandon, and he noticed the glare on the tribute's face, and he raised an eyebrow in response, before turning his attention back to the Peacekeeper.
"If I had intended to actually hit the girl, trust me, I would have done so." Keiru continued, gesturing towards the target he was in front of, where all his arrows were embedded around the bullseye, one dead center, the others about five centimeters lower, one of the arrows split in two with another arrow in it. "The girl shouldn't even be in here, she's a target to get at her, as well as him."
At saying her, Keiru nodded towards Ashley, before nodding towards Jeremy as well at the end of his sentence. "I decided it'd be better if I got them out of their fantasy world before somebody decided to actually kill the girl, because I sure as hell had noticed at least one tribute here planning to do so, and before you say anything, I'm not referring to myself in third person."
Keiru then turned his attention towards Peeta, as he had noticed that Ashley was most certainly angry at him and wouldn't take kindly to any suggestions from him. "It would benefit you if you kept a better eye on her. You wouldn't want her near us tributes if you don't want her to get hurt."
Keiru unfolded his arms now, before continuing. "As I've already said, she's a target to try and cause them two to falter. I know of a few tributes who would use her as a message to the two of them, maybe even an attempt to shatter their will to fight and survive until the right time."
Keiru paused for a moment, noticing that the Peacekeeper was still where he was, and stopped, turning his attention back to the Peacekeeper.
"Your training is coming to an end early today. You've caused too many disruptions today. You're going to solitary confinement, at least until lunch. Any more disruptions by you, and it'll be worse."
Keiru grinned when the Peacekeeper had finished, shrugging his shoulders, though he sneakily locked eyes with Peeta, though made it seem like he was looking at nothing in particular. "Nothing keeps a Kozaka in for long, what with all that money. Pays for a lot of things."
Keiru was escorted by the Peacekeeper towards the exit and as he passed Caitlyn, he whispered to her. "The bet is still on. Give me the results at lunch."
With that, Keiru was taken out of the training center, and casually strolled towards the cell for solitary confinement, where tributes who caused a ruckus were taken to for several hours to "cool" down. The door was opened, and Keiru walked in, noticing the lack of anything in the room, and sat back against the wall as the door was closed, leaving him in darkness to "reflect".
Brandon smirked as he watched Keiru get taken out, and laughed. "Good riddance, hopefully that psycho will do even more crazy stunts and get himself killed before this even starts."
Amelia glared at Brandon, though remained silent, shaking her head, before angrily walking towards the archery range, grabbing the bow Keiru had been using, loading an arrow and firing, unleashing pent-up stress upon the target as she split the arrow in the center of the bulls-eye, firing two more in the exact same spot before she breathed out a sigh in annoyance, shaking her head at what had just happened.
She wondered to herself if Keiru was trying to get himself killed, and repressed a snort of laughter at the thought. As he said in his explanation for having shot at Aria, and as Amelia had calculated before he had said anything, if Keiru tried to get himself killed, he would already have succeeded.
Their mentor meanwhile was busy face-palming once more, mumbling about Keiru being an idiot. Christian chuckled as the tributes returned to the various stations, shaking his head at what had happened. He had to admit, Keiru was making it very hard to get the time to recruit him to his plan, and the girl from District Seven was still a distraction, as yet again Keiru had saved her from danger, exposing himself to danger if he'd messed up the catch. She needed to be dealt with. Quickly.
Christian glanced back at Ashley and her daughter, before turning his attention back to the leaning against the wall, not even bothering to train any more, instead surveying the skills of the others around him. He noted that Amelia, Keiru's sister, was far more skilled than her brother in archery, having scored three consecutive bulls-eyes all in the same spot in the dead center of the bulls-eye itself. He needed them two on his side, that was for definite.
He had to admit though, that Keiru was right about others having planned to target the little girl. Christian himself had planned to "accidentally" throw a spear at her, and play it off as a stumble, and there were probably others who had planned to target Aria as well.
