8. The Hovercraft ride and the arena

 

Again, Bella and I are being transported like criminals, this time to our deaths. We are forced into the hovercraft. A tracker injected into our arms. Peacekeepers guard the exits. The other tributes look fearless and foreboding. I know I probably look like a complete wimp, about to burst into tears or something. Strapped in. The hovercraft takes flight. For about twenty minutes there was silence. Then Bella decided to tell a joke, to probably break the awkward silence. Nobody laughed. Jacob glared at me as if to say 'is she insane or what?' I nod slightly, the corners of my mouth twitching. Jacob's female accomplice was staring absent-mindedly at one of the peacekeepers. I think her name is Leah. Another half an hour and we are at the Prep building. Elena is there, in the district 7 room. She hands me a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. "All the tributes are wearing it. Good luck. I wish you didn't have to do this, you're a nice person." I pulled on the clothes and put on the pair of sandals that Elena just handed me. "Here, Damon told me to give you this." She put something into my hand, and then departed from the room. "20 seconds until departure," said a breezy woman's voice. This is it. I stepped onto the plate, still fingering the token. I felt the plate rising, into the arena. I was blinded by the sun- figuratively of course. My eyes adjusted and I saw nothing but sand. The legendary voice of Klaus Brown boomed from around me. "Let the 500th Annual Hunger Games BEGIN!"

The arena was a desert that explained the clothes. I fingered the token, then decided to look down at it. It was a piece of wood. No doubt it was from my district. From home. I put it in my pocket, and braced myself to run towards the cornucopia. That was when I noticed the pack of knives right in the mouth of the giant cone. 10 seconds left. 9. 8. 7. 6.... Oh my god. 3.2.1. Chaos. I ran as fast as I could and scooped up the pack of knives. And then I saw a bottle about a meter away- I grabbed that too. I saw a spear as well and grabbed that- just as a kid from district 10 attacked me. I stuck him with the wooden side of the spear- someone else would finish him off. That was when I saw Bella fall at the hand of Leah dead, regardless that she was a vampire. I flipped and attacked Leah fangs bared- only she wasn't human any longer. A massive, snowy white wolf stood bristling and snarling. Behind her I saw another wolf, russet brown, guess that was Jacob. Only one thing went through my mind. And it wasn't checking Bella was alive. I turned and sprinted away- from Bella- from everything. From the pain. From the wolf- from all things that could hurt me.
