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?


28. Strike One

I bit my lip to stop from shouting out and preventing the murder. I couldn't even run out from behind the rock as the needle-like tip plunged deep into his flesh, stricking a long, blue vein protruding out of his upper thigh.




Crimzon poured out onto the grass, staining it and creating a muddy solution, which the soldier then fell into. His clothes absorbed the liquid, and he was left dying on the floor as I crumpled behing the tree stump and wallowed in my own misery. I had just killed someone. Reluctantly, I looked back over again and saw the blood still oozing out of his leg, his eyes gradually becoming more limp and lifeless. This part of the field had cleared significantly, and I got up so I was out in the open, pulled a long dagger out of my belt and plunged it into his heart. Suddenly, his head had lolled sideways and his jaw dropped open to reveal a tongue daubed with fresh blood.

But at least his suffering was over.
