14. the worst kind of feeling

I thought I knew fear, but nothing prepares you for the horrors in the games. I don't know what to do. There are people running in all directions. Remember what Katniss said I tell myself over and over again. I search for Otillie but I can't see her, maybe she's already gone. I start to run, I hear footsteps behind me on the beach, I grab a backpack and turn. Its Laurel, 

"Laurel, it's me" I cry, she settles 

"I'm sorry Cass, I'm so scared"

"Come on" I'm not bothered if she's scared, I just know that we need to get out of there. "RUN" I scream pulling her along. She's heAvier than I expected, difficult to pull along.

I turn around for a split second and am horrified by what I see. Kids that I got to know over the last few weeks are no longer kids but simply "fallen tributes". I have no time to mourn their loss now. I shall see who has died later when they project them into the night sky.

"Get  move on please Laurel" but she doesn't go any faster. We find a tall tree and climb. Laurels about as good as climbing trees as she is running, but I keep pushing and eventually we settle on a tall branch, out of view. 

I pull out my backpack and empty its contents into my lap. I am pleased with it. Rope, wire, small waterproof poncho, a sleeping bag and a flask. I pull of the lid hoping for the best, but its empty. I'm surprised that the sleeping bag fits in such a small pack. It is big enough to cover me and Laurel. I hope she will be ok. 

I don't want to risk lighting a fire especially as we're so close to the cornucopia. So I decide to sleep even though sunlight is still seeping through the leaves in the trees, and I'm feeling incredibly scared. I don't know how long I sleep for, but it must be a while. I wake up to the sound of birds chirping, I can hear a bunch of tributes nearby, but I don't care, I have something else to worry about.

Laurel is gone!
