Eyes Open

Tahlia Kay, a seemingly average 17 year old girl, reads through a magazine when her eyes skim over an add:
Without thinking her and her four best friends Hayley, Cassie, Georgie and Morgan sign up, having an idea that it could be fake. When everything they have set on that idea is crushed, what happens? Well, let's just say they are gonna have to keep their eyes open.


9. Days 5 and 6

When I woke up it was still dark. I saw a girl swimming in the river. I didn't bother shooting at her because she looked so innocent. It was when she turned around I almost fell out of the tree. Her face was burnt and you could see bone. I jumped down.
I called out "Hey! Are you ok?" she turned around and gasped. "Y-You're Tahlia Kay, f-from Spitfire. W-Why are you asking me? Y-You have large cut down your face." I saw her grab her knife and hide it behind her back. I held my hand on my bow and an arrow. She pulled her hand up and showed the knife. " Do you want me to do this? End you life right now. I should've gotten a 12. I should've been with Louis and the boys. NOT YOU!"
She threw the knife and it left a cut on my shoulder. I pulled the arrow back, "I'm sorry, you threatened me, my score and most importantly Lou. I'm terribly sorry." I let the arrow fly into her heart and she dropped into the water. "I'm sorry..." I whispered. BOOM! The cannon went off.
A voice spoke up. "Well done girls for getting this far. You are now in the final 10. We may have a surprise for you later. Keep going and may the odds be ever in your favor."
I stood up and decided to go hunting. I grabbed my bow and arrows and left. While I was walking I heard 4 girls talking.
"Lets recruit Tahlia as one of ours, she got a 12 after all" a black haired girl said.
"yeah let's get her so we can win this thing!" said the blonde. Agh poo! I'm in deeps. I went back to camp with 2 rabbits and started the process of cooking them. Skin then boned then cook. When I was done, we had a feast of rabbit and apple.

Louis' P.O.V
She just went into the arena. I'm freaking out. What if she dies?
10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1, BEEP! All the girls ran into the middle, except for Tahlia. The boys looked worried. "RUN TAHLIA!!!! RUN." I then saw an Ireland girl shoot an arrow towards Tahlia I was about to look away when Harry shouted " WHAT THE HELL!"
I saw that Tahlia caught the arrow. I was just as confused as her. She slowly walked towards the bow and arrow closest to her, grabbed them and a back pack and she and the girls ran off. 5 of the girls there ran after them but the rest stayed and killed each other. Please don't die Tahlia, please!

*Watching day 4*
I was sitting in bed watching the games when the camera focused on 2 girls."...Aussie Sluts are gonna pay for killing our friends. I bet they are....." she didn't get to finish when an arrow went through her. BOOM! The other girl looked up at the tree and suddenly jumped up there. A minute passed and Tahlia suddenly fell down from the tree, the girl landing on her back. Tahlia stumbled forward onto her stomach. Shit! I felt a drop of water land on my hand and realized I was crying. Tahlia was turned over and the girl sat on her stomach. "Where's Louis to save you know... Huh? Wait, I know, he's watching it all on t.v. Too bad he'll see you die." I yelped and cried out. The other boys ran into the room when the girl lunged forward with her knife in hand. The tip of it just touching her beautiful face. The girl pulled back again and Tahlia closed her eyes, waiting for the impact, but it never came. Hayley took the knife from her and started stabbing her.
"This is for threatening us *stab*, this is for hurting me*stab*, this is for hurting Tahlia twice *stab stab*, this is for making Louis freak out*stab* and this is for trying to kill my best friend *stab*. Do not touch us again." BOOM! The cannon sounded and Hayley pulled Tahlia up and hugged her, "Don't scare me like that again Tahls. You and the girls are all I have."
What? She doesn't have parents? That's why I never saw her leave the house. Poor girl. Niall looked just as shocked as me. I fell back to sleep, wishing that these games could end soon.

I woke up at 4 in the morning and turned the t.v on. The morning edition of the games was starting. They said how many girls were left and from where, and luckily Tahlia was still alive. I caught them saying how many girls were left, 11, and walked out to the kitchen. Niall was asleep on a stool with an Oreo in hand. Nialler, Nialler, Nialler, what are we gonna do with you.
I made 2 coffees and woke Niall up. We both headed back to my bedroom. The camera changed to a girl swimming in a river beside a tree. When I looked closer to the tree I saw 2 eyes poking out of it. They looked familiar. The camera moved to a tree in the water, which was closer to the girl and the tree. The swimming girl who was originally facing us turned around and I heard a gasp. Niall shrugged and looked back at the tree. I saw Tahlia jump out of the tree. She spoke up, "Hey! Are you ok?" the girl turned around and gasped. "Y-You're Tahlia Kay, f-from Spitfire. W-Why are you asking me? Y-You have large cut down your face." I saw her grab her knife and hide it behind her back. Hopefully Tahlia saw that. Tahlia held her hand on her bow and an arrow and I held my breath. The girl then showed her knife and spoke up, "Do you want me to do this? End you life right now. I should've gotten a 12. I should've been with Louis and the boys. NOT YOU!"
I jumped and hid my face in my pillow. Then I heard an angelic voice say, "I'm sorry that you didn't get what you wanted, you threatened me and most importantly Lou. I'm terribly sorry." that was when I looked up. She had a huge gash on the shoulder. I yelped.
"It's ok Lou, it's ok." said Niall rubbing my back. "She'll get out of this, don't worry." I felt my anger rising. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN DON'T WORRY! SHE IS HURT, AND THAT GIRL IS ABOUT TO...... I trailed off when Tahlia let the arrow fly into the girls heart. She then muttered "I'm so sorry!"
I slid down under the covers and cried myself to sleep. Don't die on me Tahlia! Just don't!
