9. Chapter 9

When the gong sounds,I'm off. I reach the Cornucopia first. I grab a bunch of knifes and two swords. The next person to arrive is Sparkle.With no regret, I kill her. As she faces away from me, I throw a knife into her back. Then,Granite. I throw one into his chest. Veronica and Aqua have already grabbed weapons and are chasing down Seven,who is pretty good this year.

I continue to kill. District Three is running toward me with a sword. Easy. A knife plants itself into his chest. I then see District Twelve, the boy, has fallen. I slash him with sword before he even knows what is happening. Next, it's  the girl from District Three.Another easy kill. I fling her across a storage bin. As she falls to the ground, I grab an ax and embed it into her chest.

This is all to easy. I turn around to see the boy from Six behind me. I duck just in time. He swings a sword over my head. When on the ground, I bring the ax into his side. He falls and I finish him off. Then I see the boy from four running away with a few swords and a kukri. The only kukri. That is mine. I chase after him and tackle him. I stand up and pull him up with me. I put my hands around his neck and snap it.

I take his weapons and run back to the others. Veronica is in a fight with a huge boy from Eleven while Aqua is chasing down a few who scurry away.As running back, I see Ten leave with a nice ax. That is also mine. I pick up a spear and throw it. Ten is a good forty yards away. He falls to the ground when the spear impales him in the back of his neck. That's eight.

A boy from a district I am unsure of scatters through boxes. His head goes into one. When he looks out of the box, I slash him with the kukri. Nine. As I kick his corpse aside, I see a mace. Yes. I grab it and chase down a girl. I kill her within two hits. Ten.

I walk back. Veronica and Aqua meet me."How many?" I ask them.

"I got One. The boy from Eleven put up a good fight." Veronica responds.

"I got three. How about you?" Aqua asks while shaking the blood off her sword.

"Ten." I reply like it is nothing.

"Dang." Aqua replies shockingly.

"Let's grab all the weapons,food,and supplies. Then they can collect the bodies."

I go and pick up over three dozen knives and stuff them into my jacket. I grab another vest and load it with knives. I buckle eight swords to my belt. I plan on giving a few to Aqua and maybe one to Veronica. I grab a few spears,a mace, a machete,three throwing axes,and a variety of other weapons. The girls sort the food and supplies.

"Here." I hand Aqua three swords. She willingly takes them."Is there a bow?"

"Yeah, here." Aqua hands me one with a sheath of arrows.

"Alright, we got food and medicine. Lots of other supplies two." Veronica has packed a bunch of backpacks.

"Here." I hand her a small dagger and two swords. I have tons of knives,five spears,three swords,a bow and a bunch of arrows,a kukri,a machete,a mace, and a nice arrange of other weapons like axes and nunchucks.

"Let's go. We got everything. Give me a backpack." Veronica hands me one. I stuff a bunch of weapons into it. I sling my bow and sheath of arrows over my shoulder. I attach the spears to the backpack. I put the kukri and machete in my back pockets. The knives are scattered around my vest and jacket. I take one sword out of a sheath that is attached to my pants.

"Who killed One?" Veronica asks.

"I did." I say starting to walk off into the desert. The Cornucopia is in a meadow. The meadow is surrounded by desert.

"We have water,right?" Aqua asks.

"A ton." Veronica replies.


"So, let's go hunting. Let's see-" I am interrupted by cannons. I count them. Fourteen. Ten I am responsible for."Ten to go."

As we walk, we find nothing. We do reach a forest. I decide it's time to camp out."It's getting late, let's camp out here.I'll keep watch."

Veronica lays down with her ax in hand. Aqua does the same. After I can tell Veronica is soundly asleep, I wake Aqua up."Aqua,wake up. It's Caden."

"What do you want?" She asks.

"Come on. And be quiet." I take all the backpacks. I hand two to Aqua."We are leaving."

"Why?" She whispers.

"Ten left."

"Let's go."

Aqua and I take all the supplies, leaving Veronica with an ax. We travel all night and get pretty far.

When the sun begins to rise, I am getting tired."Want to camp?"

"Yeah, let's climb." She responds. We both climb into a tree and sleep.
