PLAYER ALIAS: MadiFreestyle
Sunny didn’t remember anything but the dark days. She was only two years old when the war began, so warfare was all she knew. Her parents had tried to protect her, but they were rebels right in the thick of things. District 11 had been one of the most rebellious districts. They protected her from danger as best they could, but they couldn’t shield her from the knowledge of the violence that was happening around her. She never got a normal childhood because she grew up amongst rebels constantly putting their lives on the line for the cause.
By the time she was eight, Sunny was accustomed to people dying around her. So many of her parents friends had been killed in the fight, but still she never thought it might happen to them. Her mother and father seemed invincible to her. So when her mother had gone on a mission and only her body was returned, it destroyed her. That was when she first realized exactly how much danger they were in, and how easy it was for her family to be torn apart. She begged her father to leave the rebellion, but he refused. He was still willing to risk his life for the cause he believed in. There were times when Sunny thought maybe he hoped he wouldn’t return from a mission so he could be with his wife again.
But he always came back, time and again. Years passed and the war ended, the rebellion falling apart. Sunny and her father tried to return to normal life, becoming tenants on a large farm. Sunny went back to school and adjusted to life as best as possible. Her father had more trouble adjusting to normalcy however. He was haunted by the ghosts of his wife and friends that had been killed during the rebellion, turning to drink to dull his pain. Sunny loved her father, really, but he scared her sometimes when he had been drinking a lot. He got loud and broke things, and sometimes he lashed out at his daughter. He was always very apologetic afterwards, but he hurt her sometimes. She didn’t want people thinking he was a bad person though, so she covered for him a lot. Her teachers and friends all thought she was really clumsy, showing up to school with bruises on her body. She knew it wasn't right that she had to be scared and hide from her father sometimes, but she couldn't leave him. She still loved him, and he was the only family she had left.
