12. The Test

Today we are training. The weapon that I had was a bow arrow. There was so much to do… there were targets, even some moving. I didn’t know where to start. I saw Amara next to me. Her arms and hands were shaking while aiming at the target. I could tell that she was scared if she ruined it, her reputations to the capital will b completely over. I couldn’t bear to see her so frightened. I went over to her and asked, “Hey you okay? You’re shaking quite a bit which is making me worried. “She smiled and said, “Yeah I’m fine, just nervous… you think I already made a fool of myself to everyone?” I shook my head and told her, “Just try not to shake so much and keep your eye on the bulls’ eye. You’ll do fine.” I walked away hoping the capital didn’t see me giving advice to Amara. But at least now I know she is okay, that’s all I really wanted to know anyways. I have to focus on my own thing. I love Amara like a sister but only one of us gets to win and I will fight till it’s over. I gently pulled back the string and aimed for my target. I let go and I missed by like a millimeter. I picked up another arrow and pulled it back. I ignored the slight chuckles from the capital as they glared at me and watched my every move. I shook it off and shot the arrow. It hit exactly in the middle of the bulls’ eye. I smirked and looked at everyone from the capital. They didn’t even bother to watch my second shot. I was tense and I spoke, “Hey, why don’t you have the decency to look at any of these tributes when their FIRST shot is a miss? Because if you look where I shot, I bet you would regret turning around.” They just stared at me with their eyes practically pouring into my soul. Then after some complete silence, they laughed hysterically and went back to what they were doing. That was a big mistake from what I did just there. I wish I would have never done that. But I had to because they are so obnoxious. I shot again and again. Every shot was exactly in the middle, even the moving manikins. I guess the hardest one was those swinging targets. Practice was over and we went back to our rooms. I slipped my shoes off and lay on my bed. I thought about what I was thinking at practice, when I said that I’ll fight until it’s over. What if I’m the one who ends up killing Amara? I couldn’t do that to her though. But I wouldn’t let her kill me either. I would probably just wait. Maybe she is going to win. Or maybe neither of us will. Either way we will be desperate to have each other again. I don’t know how I would live my life without her, and I know she feels the same. I really want to win this fight but I couldn’t bear to see Amara or anyone like her die.  For example I would be devastated if Rayd died. He is a great person. Anyways, I’m still super mad and annoyed at myself for saying that so loud everyone could hear me saying that to the capital. Such a bad choice… I wish I could start that all over again and kept my mouth shut. But again, I’m kind of happy I said that because I know they knew I was right. They just didn’t want to admit it to all the tributes staring. They probably don’t like me now for embarrassing them but I did what I did. I didn’t really want to think about it so I covered myself under the sheets and fell asleep.
