Ash seemed distracted there for a small while. His icy blue eyes kept drifting towards the table of mixed Tributes were his sister had been sitting with that damned Draven. It was more than a little disgruntling to discover that the Brute had not convinced her to separate. In fact, Ash noticed with a shadow crossing his face, it seemed that his little sister and the Draven girl were no longer anywhere to be seen. That was troublesome, and he made note to have a word with Evan later. It was prime time to show Cynder that this was not the time to take risks and socialize. Now was the time to play the game carefully and kept her alive. That was the very reason why he chose to sit down with the infamous District 2 Mentor. The blonde had a reputation as a good trainer, and a magnet for sponsors; despite her rumored strained relationship with the President. That was truly no surprise, Ash noted at the back of his mind. She really was quite lovely; fine body and a certain air that dripped with sex-appeal and confidence.
Tut, tut... Not the time to think about that, he scolded himself.
Ash gave the blonde a rather strained smile that only masked his lips. "Indeed... if they let us. Cynder is strong though, despite being...prone to distractions. In any case, District 1's team is one of the best I've seen during my time as a Mentor. Granted shorter than your own. But we have a large range of strengths this year with the... extra few," Ash said, careful about his tone. He did not want to come off as bragging. "I bring this up to you... because I have a proposition for you to consider," he said before taking a breath and leaning a bit closer.
"Your niece, and my sister... Both members of exceptional Districts with some of the highest numbers of Victors in Panem. We both have obviously strong teams.... Emme, lovely Emme, I am asking if you will be allies to District 1 in these Games. I know, in the past they had always worked closely before, but I want to make it official. No one from District 1 will kill anyone from 2, and vice versa," Ash said; voice lowered and careful. He knew the complications to this as to what would happen if the last teams were District 1 and 2, but he had not thought that far ahead yet. "If not all of District 1, then at least Cynder... I can promise the same for your niece. I am not a humble man, I will admit this to you, but for my sister I will do anything. I trust you would do the same for Michelle."
Ash was having a difficult time of keeping the desperation out of his eyes, that was frustrating. But the imagined visions of his sister dying in one hundred different ways kept playing out in his head. Over and over again.
