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?


37. Stab in the Dark

One of the soldiers closest to me ripped the metal rashly out of the hands of the one with the visor. I noticed reluctantly that it had one side that was blunt and hard, with points protruding at the corners, and the other side gradually twisted into a point, like a threatening corkscrew. I gulped silently, ogling at the instrument with a high level of doubt about my inevitable safety. The man chuckled again, but it was slightly muffled by a bandana wrapped around his face. He stroked the corkscrew callously, as if it was something precious, and brought it towards my hip, letting it graze the edge of my thigh that had been uncovered when I fell; I cringed. Watching helplessly, my eyes followed the slow, painful twiddling of the metal in his hands, pondering over which side to use...

"I'll be nice..." he said, with a fake kindness that was unsubtle.

"FINNICK!" I screamed as he plunged the flat, hard weapon into my hip.
