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?


10. Meeting the Troops

"So", he said coming over to me and standing so close I could feel his warm breath against my skin "Would one beautiful young lady like to come with me and meet the rest of the troops?" he questioned, lightly brushing my fringe out of my face. "S-sure" I stammered as we walked over to the edge of the tent, his had intertwined in mine. 

As we entered, utter silence fell on the room, discluding a few hushed murmers like: "Who's that?", "A girl for a change, huh?" and "Wow, she's mighty fine aint she lads!" before Finnicks voice boomed over the top of them. "Well," he spoke gently but loudly "I guess some of you must have noticed that there is a new soldier in our midst, Lady- sorry, soldier Acquah, and I excpect you to help her settled in."

More vigourous murmers from the onlookers "And tonight," he hollered, raising my limp hand in the air "We dine in style, to Soldier Acquah!", but I must have been lobster red at this point, but the ground went with him. "Soldier Acquah!" they chanted in unision.

"Soldier Acquah" I whispered under my breath, thoughts of tommorow consuming me. Maybe Soldier Acquah could help me to get out of here.
