Shion has been taking everything in, from the surroundings to the people. District four is not as bad as he expected, he had imagined something like West Town, children starving to death, bodies in the streets. Here it was clear that there was inequality, between the district and the Capitol, but people at least were well fed.

Which meant nothing, Shion supposed when you considered the price of that had been their children, sent to the arenas to die. He remembered the words of the anonymous network hacker and kept his eyes wide open, for any signs that people were unhappy.

He stood at the edge of the pier, listening to the music; like nothing he had heard before, and staring out into the ocean. The real ocean, this time (hopefully) his wonder wouldn't be cut short by his death.
