. . . there lived a widowed coal miner with 12 children. And these twelve children were:
Gloss, Cato, Glimmer, Delly, Madge and Primrose were “fair-haired with cerulean eyes and porcelain, milk-colored skin . . . Darius and Finnick were the handsome gingers” and Thom, Marvel, Johanna and Katniss were “dark-haired” and “olive-toned.”
One day, the miner is informed that his in-laws have bequeathed him an apothecary but he must travel in person to District Four to claim it.
So the miner took leave of his 12 children and promised to bring them back gifts from Four, and the children asked for:
- fancy shields
But Katniss asked only for a single white rose.
The miner did not yet know that to get this rose, he would have to go to an “enchanted castle” where “a hijacked prince” held on to the rose for dear life.
