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?

"I want you to come with me..." he murmured.

"Come with you?" I replied, baffled "Where?"

"Out of here..."

"To where? Where are we gonna go without these guys?" I could hear the faint hint of anxiety mingled in my voice.

"Into the real world, Cassie. We can't live here forever."

"Oh... Ummmmm.... I had only just thought of that..." I croaked.

"You don't have to go now, Cassie! Whenever your ready."

"Oh... That's very sweet of you and all, Finnick, but..." I felt the first warm tear run down my cheek. Why was I getting myself so worked up over this? I knew we had to escape, he knew it... I felt him wipe the tear from my face with his soft, warm hands, and he cradled he in his arm.

"We'll talk in the morning, OK? I don't think now's the time..." he whispered soothingly.

I was about to object when I realized he was totally right. And I was feeling quite tired, so I just nuzzled my head into his T-Shirt and waited, in the warmth, to fall asleep.
