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?


11. Home, sweet home

He dragged me slowly out of the hustle and back into his room. "I'll show you your accomodation, Cassie," and I smiled, because at least something felt like home.

We trudged up the sodden grass to a larger tent which seemed to have lots of rooms in it. Stopping abruptly at the guard, Finnick said "Henry, stand to attention! Please tell me where this pretty girl is staying?" and we began to walk inside as Henry flicked through some parchment to find me. Of course, I knew he wasn't going to find me, because I wasn't actually meant to be here, but... oh well.

After a lot of parchment-flicking, Henry finally came to the conclusion that there was nowhere for me to stay, and that I would have to speak to the organiser, and Finnick replied that he definiley would be speaking to the organiser, and I laughed because he looks really cute when he's angry. "No matter," he continued, sighing and looking deep into my eyes "You can stay in the spare room next to mine!"

And I positively glowed with happiness. I think someone might have a crush on Finnick the Braveheart...

Not me, or anything, though ;)
