A Real World Hunger Games

This is like a real world hunger games, but is a little different. There are no more continents except for North America. A meteorite has destroyed the other 6 continents. North America's people can not thrive or live without the help of food being imported from the other continents, so, North America is broken up into 12 districts. Each district must find a way to make a certain amount of food for the other districts, and each district is assigned their amount. When the people of the capital realize that each district can't support the rest of North America's people, they select 24 people from each district, and each district has it's own game each year. Only two people will survive from the group that has been drawn. This helps keep the population steady. Only 2,ooo people are allowed per district. The games help decrease the number of people. Oh Ya, there is also only a quarter of the world left, just enough land for North America to stay on. They call these games, the Hunger Games.

    The cave walls started to shake and bits of the rock fell down from it. I woke up, unaware of what was going on, and fumbled around for my bow. Reaching out to it, I grabbed it tightly and threw it on my back along with my quiver. I was trying to find where Garrett was, but couldn't look straight, everything was blurry at the moment with the whole scene not fully digesting in, and rocks falling down from the roof of the cave.

   To answer my thoughts, I felt a rough hand grab my shoulder and I almost jumped out of my skin.

   "Let's go!" the voice urgently said. The voice sounded like Derek's.

   "Wh-what?" I asked, confused

   "The game makers are closing in the walls to bring us tributes closer, we must move!"

   "But where's Garrett?"

   "I don't know, he wasn't here when I woke up, who cares about him! Let's just get out of here!" He yelled

   Obediently, I got up as fast as I could, collected the bag that held my belongings, and ran outside after Derek. He was running in front of me with his hand clasped around mine, pulling me along.

   I looked behind me and noticed the walls had crushed the cave and were moving fast behind us. We would've been dead if we hadn't moved even seconds earlier.

    The walls were catching up and I could not keep pace with Derek.

   Just breathe...in out, in out, feel the rhythm of your chest...go along with it. 

    I give up, this is useless.

    "Derek, I can't move as fast as you! Just leave me and go on to win by yourself!" I screamed to him

    "Yes you can move as fast as me, and I will never leave you to die by yourself! Hop on my back and I will carry you!" he screamed back

   Taking my best chance, I agreed with him, and he bent down so I could hop on his back piggy-back style.

    Derek ran surprisingly fast even with the extra weight, but not fast enough for us to outrun the walls. I could tell his muscles were aching because he began to slow down. In and out his chest heaved, adrenaline bursting through his muscles, sweat dripping from his head, flying back and sometimes splashing me in the face. The walls were crushing everything in its path.

    We were only a couple yards in front of the walls when his legs gave out and I flew forward, off his back.

   I screamed, as I flew through the air. The wind was knocked out of my chest when I hit the ground, and I fought to find air. Dirt surrounded my face and body, leaving me muddy from the earth.

    "I'm sorry sis, I just...I just couldn't do it." he said, gasping for air also, and reaching for my hand

    "It's okay Derek, just know that I love you and you were the best brother I could ever ask for." I replied, finding his hand and entwining it with mine.

    We lied there on the ground just looking at each other with our hearts beating faster and faster.

   So this is how we are going to die, this is how our miserable lives will end, by getting smashed by walls in a bloody arena.
