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?


30. Disease

The whole troop scurried back in disgust. I gulped, a long, dry gulp that scrapded down my throat and into the pit of my stomach. "What is that?" asked Finnick, skeptical of my ability to cure people of insects in their skin.

"I... I don't know..." I rasped, loking down at the ground "So I can't cure it. We'll have to leave him here, alone, before it spreads to any of you." I got up quickly, wiping away a lone tear that had streaked down my face, and started walking off.

"But, how will we find somewhere else?" inquired one of the soldiers anxiously.

"I don't know," I choked, "But the parasites may already be spreading. We have to leave."

"Now?" their faces were grim.
