Victor(?) Short Story
Hi, I've been reminded, by The Hunger Games, of a short story I read many years ago; where international conflicts were resolved in a large open battlefield, by individual champions for each society. The victor of these war games became highly revered, and unfettered by ethical & legal concerns. My thought is that it may have been called either'The Victor', or 'The Champion, but I'm not sure. Any possible help? I believe the short story ends with the champion headed for the house of a female neighbour, presumably to create mischief.
