The Risk

15 year old Cassie Acquah doesn't realize what "risk" is until she gets herself stuck... The thing is, a board game isn't really the same as real life, so how will she survive when she gets thrown head-first into one. Well, I suppose she COULD fall in love with the troop leader, become a soldier and explore the world on horseback, but how will she ever get out?


21. Bow and Arrow

"Is it possible that you look even more beautiful in your uniform?" Finnick exclaimed as I walked nervously out of the tent.

"Really?" I asked hopefully.

"Really, baby," he brushed my fringe affectionately out of my eyes, smiling with dimples appearing in his cheeks.

We trudged down to the weaponery, where he picked me a bow and arrow, sleekly carved out of mahoggany with sapphires encrusted in the hold, and a long, with string that made a 'twang' noise when I let it go. "Wow..." I gasped, ogling at it like it was Mt. Everest.

"I know, she's beautiful, isn't she?"

I giggled "She?"

"Yeah, she."

"OK then..."

"Let's go..."

"But... I'm nervous..."

"Nervous?" he leaned in to me and gave me a passionate kiss.

"There's no need to be nervous!" And with that, he gently put his arm around my waist and led me over to the training grounds, where around a hundred people were waiting for me.
