10. The cave
I can't take my eyes off him. I feel my hand slip start to slip off the cave. Then I feel Meg's hand start to pull me up. I don't start to think I just pull down her hand but she has a different plan she grabs me up so hard I flip into the cave. I don't try to stop the fall and I feel a sharp pain in my head when it meets the cave floor. "Look I'm sorry but by the time I..." Meg starts to say how she couldn't save Levon in time and she thought I would freak out about him so she put him up in a tree. I start to daze off around the part about Levon dying to quick.
She starts to make more carrot soup but I just lay on the ground. She puts a bowl beside me and starts to drink up her soup. I just stare at her. I would slapped the bowl out of her hands but I know she could kill me in a second. I sip some soup and find it is the richest soup I have ever eaten. Back in seven our soup was plain and not really that warm but this is so sweet and rich.
I put the soup aside and walk down the cave with as much strength as I can with my leg as I go I hear Meg call out "I'll take the first watch!" I curl up into a ball and feel my stomach start to growl and I walk back to where the soup is. I start to drink some of it and I feel my stomach start to turn I run as hard as I can back into the cave and start to throw up. I run though the cave in till I see it. The boy from eleven is hiding in the cave,
Peach doesn't look away from her brother and I see her hand start to slip. I would let her die with her leg after all but I might need her later. She starts to pull down on my hand but shes weak. I take all my strength I have and pull her hand as hard as I can. She flips up in the air and I use my hand to throw her onto the cave floor. I pull myself on into the cave. I start to tell her that I am sorry but I can tell she isn't paying attention about anything I am saying. And the worst part is I know why.
I start to cook more soup because I have no other thing to do right now. Peach just lays flat on the ground. I place some soup next to her. I slip up all the soup up in one gulp. It's so sweet because I put at least two sugercubes in there because I got some in a mail rocket thing. Peach starts to slip it and I think she hates it. I feel so bad because I feel like I can do nothing to help her.
She walks back into the cave and I take the first watch. Nothing really happens as I sit there but I see that Peach is walking back to the soup. Then she starts to run with her bad leg. Maybe she thinks I saw her and she doesn't want to talk to me. I feel like crying when I hear a loud sound "MEG!"
