8. When the gong rings

~ Louis' P.O.V. ~

Cynda winced when the tracker was injected into her arm. Once my tracker was placed, me and Cynda were separated and I was lead to a different room. Katniss was waiting for me when I walked in and the heavy door closed behind me. I looked at her expectantly. What advice did she have to tell me before I was put in the death ring?

"Hey." I said, breaking the silence.

"Don't die out there." She told me

"Thanks for the heads up" I said back sarcastically. She glared at me.

"30 seconds." The intercom announced. I looked at the tube that was waiting for me, unsure of what to do.

"Don't step off the pedestal too early and head for water. Don't get in the way of other tributes." She warned me.

"Don't worry, I remember everything you told me."

"Good, don't forget any of it."

"10 seconds." I glanced at the tube and slowly walked over to it. I stepped inside and looked back at Katniss. She nodded at me and the glass doors closed. I started to panic as the tube raised. I starred at her with fear in my eyes, but she only looked at the ground. The tube raised into the sun making me squint. Before I knew it I was standing on the pedestal watching the clock count down from 60. I looked around for Cynda but tributes around me were all just a blur.

~ Bri's P.O.V. ~

I watched the clock in silence not daring to move. The ground was full of snow and around the Cornucopia was a snowy, pine forest. How was I supposed to survive in snow?

 I wasn't sure if it was because they were too far away or if I was just too scared to see straight, but I couldn't see any of the other tributes. Not even Niall. it didn't matter anymore anyways. Haymitch had told us not to make allies and I was going to try my best to follow most of his rules.

I wanted to stay with Niall, but if I did would it put him in danger? I wasn't sure, so I wasn't going to take the chance, not after what Haymitch had told me before I was put in the arena

~ Flash back to right before the games started ~

"What ever you do, don't partner up with Niall." Haymitch had told me.

"Why not?"

"You'll only end up hurt in the end." He replied.

"Niall would never hurt me."

"You sure about that? Look, Niall wants to win just like all the other tributes. In the end he will kill you."

"I don't believe you!" I yelled at him.

"Calm down. I'm only stating the truth. " He told me.

"30 seconds" A monotone voice rang out. I looked at the tube then turned back to Haymitch and glared at him.

"Why should I believe you?" I whispered.

He leaned over to me and whispered into my ear. "Because you've seen how talented he is with a bow and how angry he can get." I thought about how Niall was more frustrated and mad when Katniss was around. He looked like a career when training when ever she was teaching. And all for what? What had made him so angry at her to be like that? It truly looked as if he wanted to strangle her. Would he do that to me?

Haymitch shoved me into the tube before I could reply and the glass door closed around me.  My anger vanished to be replaced by fear. Was Haymitch right? Would Niall turn against me? I put my hands on the glass yelling at Haymitch to help me, but my words were unheard.

 

20. 19. 18. 17. 16. 15. I prepared my self to bolt as soon as the clock hit 0. I told myself to grab a knife and run. Don't stop for anything else. I know Haymitch had told us not to stop for anything but I had to get a hold of a knife.

7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. I closed my eyes and waited for the gong to ring. When it did I jumped of the pedestal and ran for the Cornucopia. I took a breath of relief when I didn't get blown up by any landmines. Once I had reached the Cornucopia I searched for a knife.. 

There! I saw a rack with knifes on it. Not being picky I grabbed two, one in each hand, and ran. I had to duck and avoid other tributes slashing at me with weapons. I saw Niall running towards me yelling my name. "Br! Bri! Watch out!"

I turned around and saw a tribute lunge at me with a knife. She tackled me to the ground and I struggled under her grasp. I dodged her knife that was stabbing at me. While avoiding a hit to my face the knife dug into my arm. Searing pain flowed through my arm. I swung one of my knifes at her slicing her on the cheek. She leap off of me holding her cheek. She glared at me with hatred.

She lunged at me again and I smacked the ground in an awkward position. My leg twisted making pain numb my leg. Before I could scream for help an arrow flew past my face only barely missing my head. Instead of hitting me it pierced the girl who attacked me through the chest and she fell to the floor dead. I turned around and saw Niall hurtling toward me. He got closer and closer and I froze in terror.

He had almost killed me! That arrow could have hit me instead of the other girl! He ran into me and hugged me. "Thank god your safe!" His words were a blur to me. I wiggled out of his grasp and looked down at the bow in his hand. I stared at him with fear. He looked at me confused.  I turned around and ran as fast as I could away from him.

He continued to yell my name but I didn't look back. I ran straight into the trees tripping on snow as my leg hurt more and more. I saw another tribute and turned right to stay out of his way only to run right into another.

~ Niall's P.O.V. ~

I couldn't believe it! I had told Bri I would be by her side the whole time and when I finally find her in the mad rush at the Cornucopia and saved her life, she looked as if she was scared of me! What had gotten into her? I thought we could trust each other?

I stood in shock in the middle of a bloody field with a bunch of tributes killing each other. But I just stood there watching Bri run away from me. I realized it was probably that girls fault. Bri had probably been so scared of almost dying that she didn't want to trust anyone because they could kill her at any second! Then I realized something else. It was my fault. I had shot the arrow so close to her. It had almost hit her. She must have thought I was trying to kill her!

I wanted to scream. I was beginning to like her. I realized. I thought she might have, just maybe, liked me too. But no. I ruined it. She was afraid of me.

~ Cynda's P.O.V. ~

"Watch out!" I screamed to Louis who was blindly running away from a tribute in terror. He was being chased my a guy who looked hungry to kill. He was probably one of those careers that Peeta told me about. In his rush to escape, Louis was about to run into another tribute who was glued to his spot. I was to late too warn him though. He crashed into him and they both fell to the floor. The career was gaining on him now and I ran in front of him to stop him from reaching Louis.

He slammed into me and we both fell to the ground rolling around . We rolled in the snow trying to pin each other to the ground. He eventually won, holding his knife to my neck in triumph. I looked back in terror but before he could make the killing strike, Louis and the guy he ran into lifted him off of me.

"Run!" Louis yelled at me.

I ran as fast as I could into the forest. When I looked back I saw Louis and the other guy battling with the career. But while I was looking back I ran into yet another person, falling to the cold ground again in pain. The snow burned the skin on my hand. I touched my forehead and found it was bleeding from the hit.

I looked up and saw a girl starring at me in shock. I looked into her eyes and gasped.

"Cynda?" She whispered.

"Bri? I asked.
