Millie had been doing a lot of thinking today. Things were happening that...while she was excited about them...worried her. Was this year just doomed to be a repeat of her own trial. "Do I really want to get attached all over again." She tried her best to push these thoughts out of her head. "No," she reassured herself, "This was the year. Succeed or fail this was the year."
She laid down on a bench beside a familiar flowering plant. Its smell brought back memories she didn't care to remember but she would need them if she was to succeed.
This was where she had met Kimber after all. It was a nice place. Not a place to worry.

As soon as she thought nobody was watching Reese ducked around a corner and let out a sigh as she leaned against the wall. Coast is clear.
Wincing slightly she pulled her hand out of her pocket. The bleeding had stopped from where the needle pierced her but she still felt a throbbing pain up her arm. "There is no way I'm calling a medic about this," she lamented while placing the ingredients into the mortar and pestle.

"Yeah, that ought to do the trick! Feeling better already... Damn blowdart!" Saying the last part a little louder than she intended as she realized she heard some sort of rustling nearby within the garden.
"Oh... uh hey Millie... how much of that did you just catch?" Then before giving her much time to answer, Reese changed the subject. "I'm Reese!" She extended her hand and then thinking for a moment withdrew it. "I'd shake your hand or something but you probably just saw most that and it is still a bit grimy. I recognized you right away from the games, what are you even doing here in the capitol? You're not participating are you? Cause I could sure use some advice if you've got a moment."

Vester strode into the garden, straight past Reese.
"I see you've taken on a sort of mentor role for some of my players. How sweet," he said dryly, glancing at Reese in the corner of his eye. "It's sure quiet out here, don't you think? I wonder if everyone's walled up in their hotel rooms or hanging out in some secret holes somewhere. Would you care to walk with me?"

Gwen spotted Vester heading into the rose garden. Curious, she decided to sneak in behind him to see what he was up to.

Gwen leaned a bit too far into a stand with a potted plant, trying to get close enough to hear Vester and Millie. The pot wobbled. She caught it just in tome before it decided to take a leap of faith to the ground. She held her breath, hoping the others didn't hear or notice.1d8

Vester raised an arm, gesturing with an open palm towards the rows of lattices covered in roses. Between them was a narrow walkway that led to the back of the garden that was densely covered in dark green foliage. As they walked, Vester turned to Millie with a friendly smile.
“I have a feeling this will be my favorite Hunger Games, do you feel the same? I’d love to hear your full analysis of this year’s tributes. Who do you think has a shot this year?”
When he thought they were out of earshot of Reese, Vester continued quietly, “A little jabberjay told me what you wrote on the wall of the library. Nothing is safe from the eyes of the Capitol. You will not take my last Game from me, Millie. I promise you that.”

Millie was taken aback. As angry as he sounded THIS was kind for him. By all accounts with the shenanigans she had been pulling Millie had expected him to be leading her to a firing squad.
She laughed politely for the cameras, "Ya know Vester, with the way he's been parading around the building you'd almost think that AGNI had his eye on winning the arena again this year."
She smiled, "And given the chance I'm sure he would."
But there was something in particular he said. Something whispered in her ear that made not even the least bit of sense. Despite herself she whispered back.
"LAST game?" she whispered in genuine confusion, "What would the capitol do without the gamemaker? You practically ARE the games.
Surely the capitol wouldn't want to loose someone of your...talents."
She briefly considered telling him that the particular graffiti in question hadn't been her doing for once but decided against it. And since when has the Capitol ever taken any of my stances as anything to be worried about," she asked dryly.
"We had an agreement," she added, "i stay all bright and shiny for the camera's after last years alcohol debacle." She shuddered a little thinking about the depressive slump last years game had brought her. "and you don't hassle me about my opinions as long as I don't spread them across the airwaves or town square."
Cal Mensen: I believe you edit the post. You can either rewhisper to everyone (too much work), or copy and paste the whispers into public text. I'd imagine you'd want to give some sort of symbol or notation that they were once whispers.

Cal Mensen: Same here, part of me wants to allocate some time aside to building a new one in a different setting. It'd be easier to devote time to if there's a shard interest.
