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?


12. First Night

I couldn't sleep that night, because there was a noticeable drought in the tent and my bed sheets were thin and hole-covered... I shivered through the night, but actually I must have fallen asleep at some point, because I kept having these nightmares where my brother was in the room where I left him but the walls were closing in; the bed frames cracked and splintered and the sofa was squished until it was like a velvet sack of chipped wood. I screamed. He screamed even louder as his body was inches away from being crushed by the walls "Ben! No, run! RUN!" I yelled, writhing about like I was trying to escape from chains...

I felt someone shaking me-hard. "Cassie!" a blurry voice shouted, but I couldn't make out who it was- nor could I figure out whether it was reality or a dream. I was brought back to my senses by a cold splash of water in my face. "CASSIE!" another hard shake, and I twisted over, before my vision swam back, and Finnick was standing in front of me, shirtless. At least, I though he was shirtless, all I could focus on for the time being was his mesmerizing green eyes and his voice cracked and nervous.

I grabbed onto his arm, and I heard a loud sigh of relief, and Finnick came closer to me "You're OK, you're OK... Are you OK?!" I managed to stutter a 'yes' before I realized he was shirtless.

And he had nice abs... Who is this trying to torture me?!
