A jabberjay lands in the window and speaks in the voice of Seth.
“Requesting backup! Arnie, Ox, Derrick, Rosa, Alicia, Olive, the Careers and Tristan Danio are in North Tower Level 4. Use Hovercraft remotes and get here as soon as you can.”
“We don’t need a bloodbath here, Schuhmachers. We know what you must have done to Mave and Jessie and Rosie. But there’s eight of us and we’re all armed and well-equipped. If you try anything you will be utterly destroyed. And as you know, Ayla and I are the best fighters in these Games. So if you want to live I suggest you stand down and we can talk this through.”

"Nothing. We are going to do nothing. North tower was his choice. I'm sorry that it had to turn out that way but messing with that alliance is suicide. It is absolute suicide. I didn't come this far to throw my chances and my life away like that. No. No. I'm sorry, but he's on his own now."

Hearing Alistair's words filled Jaffe with anger and resentment, but she knew he was right. They didn't have the resources or power to take on the careers. The games were changing them, the capital was changing them. Every level of the demonic tower brought them deeper into the presidents control. "This is what they want," thought Jaffe, "You either become stripped of all human compassion or fall into one of their death traps."
FLASHBACK: "Daddy they took Uncle Jake. Those mean men took him!"
"I know baby girl, I know."
"You have to do something! You have to save him!"
"I can't baby girl, that's not how this works. If we chase after them now the Capital wins. We can't risk everything we've worked for. I know it's tough, but we will get justice... one day. Be patient darling."
PRESENT DAY: Jaffe couldn't stand to be near Alistair. She had to be alone now with her thoughts.
"Shit... Shit shit SHIT!" He was really hoping he didn't have to kill anyone just yet, but Seth and Ayla were over there alone!!! He couldn't let them die, he had to do something.
"Arnie, what do you think man?" He said turning to him, he was aware of the others still here with them, but he would avoid them if at all possible, he didn't want any trouble.
Arnie heard the jabberjay and considered what it meant. "I hate to see them in need, but I couldn't get there if I tried. Let's see if we have anything that comes up on the next level up that can give us a leg up on reaching them."
All things considered Arnie felt relatively at ease in the south tower. The tributes here weren't aggressive and it seemed like a tentative peace might be able to last.
Ox nodded at Arnie, he wasn't going to leave him on his own and he had to admit to himself he felt a bit safer over at this tower away from all the action. He bit his lip though. How was Alicia doing at the West tower? Was she doing ok with the obstacles? Did she try to head over to Seth and Ayla? If she did he couldn't stay in south tower, he would have to go rushing to her. Alicia was his priority.
"Alright Arnie, I aint leavin you here man. We're in this together."

Ox, Arnie! What happened, where's Derrick?!
Shh... "I have a jabberjay" she whispered to Ox and Arnie, careful not to let the others hear, "If we need to get in contact with anyone we can but I don't think we should waist it now, we need to be smart about this, if the next level let's us find the others we can call them then and try to see where they are, okey? Let's stick together through this... I've been in the same tower as Ashton all this time but I have no clue where he stands or if he's going to kill me in my sleep..."

"Derrick, for lack of a better way to phrase it, is kumbaya-ing it up in another tower, possibly with Anton and Ingrid hot on their tails. with Rosa--who is still alive. At least I hope. But then again, I don't know much." Ashton rubbed his head: the three were yelling about what to do next and Ashton just wanted everyone to let him catch at least an hour's sleep.
"aaaand you were not talking to me. Oh well, there's my answer anyway."

Nilla Nightsand: You wake up and its the day of the tribute selection. Everything seems back to normal but...you look up at the stage and there's Vester in sunglasses looking directly at you giving you finger guns.
