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?


31. Finding Again

I rapidly brushed myself down, though it hurt as my hands had been abraded on the rocks whilst we were climbing up. I let out a small squeak of pain, and we started hiking upwards again towards some alcoves we could see in the rock. It would be quite a trip to the nearest water source, so we refilled for a final time before setting off; when we reached our destination there was another fresh stream flowing down the mountainface that we had reasonable access to.

After all of the soldiers had grown tired and irritable, we decided to rest for a short night in an alcove nearer the ground, just below the starting leaves of the canopy. Sure, it would be dangerous because wild animals roam the area frequently, but it was our only choice.

I rested on a portion of the ground shrouded by shadows, but there was limited space and so I decided to sleep next to Finnick, who was always warm, and he wrapped his arms comfortingly around me so that I could rest my head on his chest and feel his warm breath on me.

He waited, both of us consumed by the silence, until the rest of the crew drifted to sleep, to whisper something to me.
