"I love you mummy " she hugged her. "Oh, Fenna. Come on lets get you ready." her mother said.

"Where did you get the money for this?" she said, taking the dress in her hands. "well, I didn't buy it." she said. "I wore it for my first reaping and wore it when your father and I got married. you wouldn't know about it 'cause I never showed it to any one." she smiled and motioned for her to do the same.

Her mother begin to English Braid her hair. Her dark eyes looked around the room to find the clock.
