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?


9. Troop Leader's Taking Over

I had my head bowed as I traipsed into the lonely tent. All I could see was my feet and some lavishly decorated carpets littered with bones and half-eaten grapes. I looked up.

Oh. My. God.

That was Finnick the Braveheart? Wow, he was damn cute... He had deep green eyes that bore into mine and silky brown hair that flopped over his face; his smile meleted me like butter. "Good afternoon, and may I say you are looking very beautiful today!" he exclaimed. I giggled nervously. Come on Cassie, say something clever... Or at least just something!

"I could say the same about you, Finnick the Braveheart" I stuttered.

"Please call me Finnick," he said sweetly.

"OK..." I had run out of things to say...

He saw I was nervous and moved closer to me, and in almost a whisper "So, what's your name?"

"Ca- Soldier Acquah" I corrected myself, then added politely "But you may call me Cassie..."

"Cassie? Gosh, a name almost as beautiful as yourself!"

God, did I chose the right troop leader.
