I wake up, startled from hearing a rustling in the bushes. I get out of the sleeping bag, roll it up and stuff it in my pack. I hang off the branch and quickly let go, ready to run off. Instead, I stand there and realise it's Carter. I quietly jump into another bush, and see he has teamed up with, Varnia, Laud, both from District 2 and Garth from 3. I wipe my forehead, getting rid of the sweat on my brow.
"Where is she?" Asks Laud.
"She went round here!" I hear Carter messing with the tree I was in. I realise the 'she' their referring to is me.
"When we find her how should we kill her?" Asks the girl from 2, Florana I hear someone call her. Ugh- the people from 2 give their kids stupid names- anyway, I see Florana pull out a machete from her pocket.
"We'll use my sword," I hear Garth.
No thanks, I think. I quickly sneak off whilst their blabbering on about how they should kill me. I need to find a water source now. My lips are cracked and my throat is dry. If there is no water, everyone would die of how thirsty we are. I find a small puddle and dip my finger in. It's murky and dirty. Better not drink that then. I get up and look around. I hear a loud rustling coming from the bush. I walk over to it and see a rabbit, drinking from a lake. A lake! I found it! I sneak up on the rabbit and kill it quickly, so I can cook it. I wash my face and carefully grab my water bottle and fill it up. I drink it in five seconds flat. I fill it up again and take a small sip.
"Finally..." I whisper. I find a new tree and sit up in it. I take a deep breath and thank the Gamemakers that they put a lake there. I shut my eyes and think of how happy my family will be on how, now, that I won't die of thirst. I open them quickly as I hear footsteps coming close. I gulp and stand up, making myself hard to see. I hold into the sides of the tree, carefully not making the person see my arms.
"Cyanna, I know you're there!" A voice hisses. I look around carefully the side of the tree carefully. Just who I want to see is right there.
