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?


8. Finnick the Braveheart

He gripped my hand firmly and dragged me through the hoard of people in the tent, to a small room behind a curtain and some wooden folds at the back. "Soldier..." he began, before realizing I hadn't introduced myself.

"Your name, fair maiden?" he winked at me. I giggled slightly; old fashionde people certainly were charming. I thought frantically, and I decided I would have to be straightforward on the name front.

"Lady Cassandra, but you, kind sir, can call me Cassie," I replied sweetly. I'm actually surprisingly good at old-fashioned speak!

"Well, Cassie," he replied, bowing and motioning toward a navy blue curatain "Finnick the Braveheart is eagerly awaiting your arrival."

"And I am equally as eager to meet him."

And with that, I proceeded into the back room of the tent, nerves pulsing through my bloodstream like a line of ants.
