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.


6. The first day

I was shaken awake by 5 crying boys. "You g-girls need t-to go out t-there and win. We need you to come back" cried Niall.
"I will! If we're hurt or sick, send us the medicine if we don't have it. I have to go and get ready. I'll see you guys before we are lifted up into the arena...ok?"
They all nodded. Poor boys.
I did my morning routine and got dressed into the clothes that were set out for me, long pants and short sleeve top. I placed my pin on my top and laced my boots. Looks like its no tropical getaway.
I walked out of the room and into the elevator to get to the training centre, which is where we're leaving from. The doors were about to close when 9 hands stopped them. Hayley and Niall came in first follower by Cassie, Louis, Harry, Georgie, Morgan, Liam and Zayn.
"Hey guys!" I said with fake happiness. They all said their hellos and then we got to the arena. When "Louis carry Tahlia in there. She needs to see how I felt." I felt louis pick me up and put me over his shoulder. I screamed and laughed and yelled "Don't Fart!!!!!" until he put me down. In which he did and he was crying. He kissed me with so much passion and whispered "win for your sister, win for the girls, win for the boys and most importantly win for us. Goodbye Tahls... I love you." He then walked away. "I love you too" I said with tears streaming down my face. Emma came and gave me a navy blue water proof jacket with blue seams. I thanked her and stepped into the tube.
Before I knew it I was in the arena. The girls all agreed to be an alliance, so we were going to run straight away from the cornucopia. the clock started counting down. "I saw only 3 bows. Perfect! The one closest to me was 15 meters away. I'm good at running... Aren't I?
10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 Beep!! The buzzer sounded and I was frozen. I literally couldn't move. I saw the bow that I was eyeing off... It was still there. I saw a girl from Ireland shoot an arrow towards me. Everything was going in slow motion. The arrow cut through the air and it sailed toward my heart. Though I didn't get there. I caught it.
Everyone turned to look at me. I slowly walked up to the bow I was eyeing off. Grabbed the arrow shaft and swung it around on my shoulder,and did the same with a backpack and the bow. I quickly ran off with the girls running behind me. We ran for about 20 minutes straight and then we climbed up a big tree. I looked in my back pack and found " 5 apples, flint, an empty water bottle, rope and a sleeping bag are in my bag" I said. The others had similar things I their bags. We decided to set up camp and we each took turns on watch. By night fall everyone was asleep except for me. Suddenly a light came on in the sky and it showed how many had died and from where. All of the girls from china, Japan, Ireland,America and Italy got killed. 2 from England and none from Australia, Canada, Germany or New Zealand. I saw the blonde from training beneath the tree next to ours. What a stupid girl. She had a fire on and was warming her hands. I was about call out but a group of 7 girls including Sarah and Matisse came and sat down with her. I saw the leader pull a knife out and hide it behind her back, but when she did I shot an arrow at her. A cannon went off. She was dead. The girls looked around scared. The 2 girls who were next to the person I shot got their knives and tried to stab Sarah and Matisse. I shot an arrow through both of them and the 2 cannons sounded. The last 2 girls ended up cutting Sarah on her arm and killing the blonde, so I shot an arrow through them. 10 girls left now. I must survive for Louis. I must......
