Alternative Ending To Mockingjay Essay

Gale must be near, I can hear his heart pounding. I am running desperately through the emptiness of what seems to be a corridor, it’s all white, just like most of the Capitol security buildings. I take a right, and then a left, but something makes me come to a complete stop; ten feet in front of me, an automatic and bright sliding door stands. I just hope that I am not being recorded by the security cameras, because if I am, my life has already been condemned to die within a few minutes. No one knows that I am here, except for Cinna.

Beginning to panic, sweat is making its way down my face onto the Capitol's floor; if I get caught here, I might be at the verge of my own death. I can’t die this way. I have outsmarted the Capitol twice in the Hunger Games, no other tribute has been able to to accomplish that. After all this long and suffered for journey, these can’t be my last minutes of life.

“Time-out. Server unlocked. Welcome Mr. President Snow.”
