Stuck In The Hunger Games

What would you do if you were at one minute reading 'the hunger games', and then the next thing you know, you are transported into the middle of the hunger games. This is what happened to Jessica Rattey. An ordinary 16 year old girl, not very popular, but she loved a good adventure. One minute she is sat all by herself, indulged in a good read, the next minute she is the read. She has to survive till the end of the game.


5. Hiding In A Tree

After caping their backpacks with mud, they both began walking through the woods.

"So what's the plan?" Jessica questioned eagerly.

"Well, we need to keep out of the way of the others players, until the numbers go down a bit".

Jessica said loudly "good idea".

Katniss sarcastically said "that's because I came up with it bookworm".

Jessica just huffed crossly. She thought to herself 'I'll show her! I will start giving her, her own ideas before she can say them, making me seem smarter than her! I have a secret weapon... I've read the book, and watched the film loads of times'.

Katniss suddenly stopped in her tracks. They both heard a twig crack in the distance. Katniss said quietly "I sense trouble". Jessica whispered under her breath "I know it's trouble". As Katniss heard voices coming closer towards them she said at the same time as Jessica "quick! Up into the trees!" For a second they stopped and looked quite startled at one another, but as the voices got even closer, they both quickly scrambled into a tall tree nearby. A few girls and boys came along, and began searching the area.

"Look around, I heard voices here! They can't have gone far!" A boy called Cato shouted commandingly.

"But where could they have gone so fast?!" a boy called Peeta yelled.

A girl called Glimmer said smartly as she heard a tree branch crack "your right, they can't have gone far. We can't see them because were not looking up!" She then looked straight up spotting Katniss and Jessica hiding high up in a tree. The girl shot an arrow at them, but missed. Peeta shouted at the Glimmer. "Leave them! You will only go and waste your ammo! We shall set up camp here!" Cato said in a huff "but why? One of them might shoot at us while we sleep, they have arrows to you know!" Peeta said in a husky voice "one of us will keep guard, and we can take it in turns. We will wait them out. They will starve to death eventually. They have to come down to find food". Katniss and Jessica moaned in disbelief. Katniss was digusted how Peeta from her own district was betraying her like this. There was nothing she could do though. Either way they were going to end up dead. Which way was the best way to go? An arrow to the head, or starving to death? As night fall came, Katniss and Jessica got out their sleeping bags, and prepared themselves for their first night up in the tree.
