Hunger Games – Divergent Crossover Part 1
After the Quarter Quell, Katniss had no choice but to go into hiding. The Capitol was sure to punish her severely for destroying the dome that encased the battlefield. She had to help Peeta, if in fact he was still alive. But not without a strategy, which would take time.
Having remembered the words Mags had told her, she pressed on to what may be her only hope. Before she died in the games, Mags had seen something in Katniss. And when she did, she felt compelled to share a story few knew and even fewer ever dared to speak. Those who knew where among the oldest in Panem and had only heard the stories from relatives long since gone.
She told her that somewhere out in the remote areas of District 8, stands a region onto itself, separated from the rest of Panem in its isolation and the existence of which few knew about. This region was said to be called Chicago.
It was told that this Chicago was once part of Panem but the citizens began a civil war, battling among themselves. It became so much of a problem for the Capitol that they eventually decided to wash their hands of having any dealings with the area. They were left alone, to either govern, or more likely destroy, themselves and their land.
Could it be that this unknown land, if it even existed, was Katniss’ only refuge? She had to find out for sure.
So after a long journey Katniss found herself standing in a barren wasteland, nothing but tree stumps and dusty earth before her. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, she felt in her heart that she must be getting close.
Once she was discovered to be a Divergent, Tris became a refugee, running from the very people she once joined as a member of Dauntless as well as all of the other factions including the one of her birth.
At least once each day, even despite the warnings of her lone companion Four, Tris would make her way to the massive fences that surrounded the city. She’d wonder if she might rather face the unknown outside rather than continue to hide among the citizen of her city.
She kept in contact with Christina and a few Dauntless but was careful never to approach anyone she didn’t trust implicitly.
But it was today that all that would change.
Tris stood along the path of the rusted fence and peered out into the distance like she had done so many times before. But this time, something was different. For the first time, she thought she saw something no someone, in the distance. It was a small figure walking upright – human? Perhaps a young woman? Little did she know that in just hours, she would meet the only person she had ever seen beyond the fence, a girl named Katniss.
