Burning Gold-COMPLETE-

Cyanna Harlech and Jax Parka. The winners of the 67th Hunger Games are back. This year, they are thrown back into the Games, not to fight victors, but to fight better and stronger fighters. The only thing is; this year, it is undecided if everyone shall live or perish in The Arena. (Sequel to The 67th Hunger Games)


17. 17

A cannon booms. It's the sound I dread to hear, and it has returned. I sit up straight and get out of the sleeping bag, grabbing the arrows without a breath. I wait for someone to come running. But there's nothing.

I roll up the sleeping bag and get startled when I hear voices. I look over at where Jax is sleeping and spot Stark's sleeping bag. It's empty.

"Stark... Where are you?" I whisper. I walk over to his sleeping bag and see blood stains on it. Is this a joke? I poke my head round the tree carefully, so the people talking won't spot me.

"Where are you...?" I repeat, my voice shaking. I walk out from behind the tree and take a huge deep breath as a lump forms in my throat. Surely this isn't how he died? His sister just died now him a more painful way!

Blood from the trident in his skull trickles onto the ground. I whisper a goodbye to him as the hovercraft comes and takes his lifeless body up into the sky. Jax has woken up when I get back.

"Where's Stark?" She asks, wearily.

"He died... Took a trident to the skull," I say.

"Well... Now it's just the two of us. We can do it, right?"

"Right," I close my eyes for a moment, "let's go. How's your leg?"

"Good actually. The sand filled up some of the flesh, see."

I look at her leg. The burn has gone, yes, but the flesh is a bright pink.

"Great. Where should we go?"

"Away from here,"

"OK... Follow," I hand gesture to her and she gets up with the packs.

Sighing, I look at Jax and walk off into the distance with her, limping behind me.

"Wait. Stay here..." I say cautiously running off into the distance. There's something I have to do, which is kill the person who killed Stark. Who did it? Well of course, it's obvious! It could only be one person. Caudral.

I keep running and hide in a bush, noticing Caudral and Cealie cooking something. What an easy target. I shoot both of them in the skull and they collapse. Just like Stark. Gone.

"Cyanna!" I hear Jax's voice scream out.

"Jax, I'm coming, I'm coming!"

How stupid I am for leaving her there.
