17. A Dog? Seriously ..

I walked down the hallway that seemed to be endless and I heard a slight shuffling in my room. I walked in front of my door about to open it then all of a sudden I heard a loud SMASH! I jumped then fell on the floor hard in fright. Is someone in there?! I didn’t want to go inside. But, I did and as I turned the door knob I tightened my eyes shut and turned my head. I slowly opened one eye expecting the person to be staring right at me then I was shocked in surprise. There…There was a dog in my room. I didn’t understand. It was a miniature schnauzer and his ears were floppy. He was just a little puppy. He was adorable. I closed the door behind me and sat on the floor. He came running to my and his ears went up and down, up and down. Then he fell over and got right back up then started to run towards me again. As I was petting his forehead I was checking to see if he had a collar and he didn’t. I said to myself, ‘I guess maybe I can keep him. Maybe I should show him to Carol first just to be safe.’ I opened the door very slowly and quietly so I could go tell her. When I finally got the door shut, I turned around to find my eyes glued to one of the guys from the capital as his peering into mine. He was standing so close to me I was starting to feel really hot. I started to walk closer so he would get out of the way but he didn’t. Instead, I moved to the side so I wasn’t constantly squished by him. He gave me a very uncomfortable glare. Then the corner of my eye, Carol was rushing over here and said to me quickly, “Come on Autumn, let’s get back to the room” she ignored the man and pulled me in the room with him following. I whispered to her, “I need to talk to you about something,” She gave me a strange look and replied, “Okay but later. Let’s go-” The loud booming sound filled the room and we all knew what it meant. The capital smirked and I rolled my eyes in disgust. Amara Brady showed up on the screen and I completely forgot about the dog. I didn’t expect that. I don’t know if she did that on purpose or if she actually tried. Maybe she just wanted to see me. I ran back to my room and the dog disappeared. I watched her walk into the room. I sneaked up slowly out of the capitals room before anyone saw her and led her backwards before we got caught. I asked her, “What happened out there? I didn’t think you would die so quickly!” I realized what I said sounded really weird. But, I was being honest. She replied in guilt, “I just wanted to know why you were the first one dead,” she gave me a glare and I sighed to explain. I told her why I was the first one out when Carol interrupted and said, “What are you girls doing back here? Come sit down. Wait, Amara? Why aren’t you out there?” Amara seemed annoyed to have to explain again. She told her and she seemed really tired and worn down. I couldn’t tell her emotions. I had no idea what she was thinking. I was really worried about her. We both sat on the couch. Carol sat in the middle of us. I whispered to Carol, “Do you think we could go back to our rooms instead of waiting here?” she smiled and said, “I don’t know, this is the ‘waiting room’.” I sighed and so did she. She went over to one of the guys and asked politely, “Can the girls go back to their rooms? I think it would be better because it will get crowded and loud.”
