16. First Day
As I awoke to the sound of a bird singing, I looking around, noticing the fog that swept through the forest and frowned.
It was very mysterious.
As I looked below me, I say that there was no one in sight.
Since it was so early, I decided to climb down and search for food.
I didn't know what I would find in this place.
As I planted my feet firmly on the ground, I listened closely to everything...
Of course, there were the birds...But then, I heard water.
I decided to go see if I could find it and sure enough, after a few steps from the tree, there was a small stream.
I looked around in it, not really seeing any fish.
Then I realized that I was weapon-less.
How could I hunt or fish if I didn't have anything to do that with.
I could make myself some arrows...I'd learned that all I needed to do that with was a stick and a rock.
Although, I'm sure I could think of something better...I just didn't know what.
Walking around, I searched, trying to find food and things that I could make weapons out of.
I wasn't about to be caught up in the blood bath yesterday, that's why I didn't grab anything.
As I slowly stepped out into the field where the tributes had pretty much been slaughtered, I was on alert.
Slowly, I made my way out through the tall grass.
It was up to almost my waist, but that didn't stop me.
Then, I seen something orange in the distance...It was a well-hidden back pack.
When I reach out to grab it, I seen something move near the edge of the forest in front of me...It was a tribute.
I was already trying to keep a low profile--And I was on all fours on the ground. I was too hidden for them to see me!
As they made their way around me--Around me as in, five feet from me!-- I covered the back pack with my body, hiding like i was in a little shell.
They moved to the other side of the forest and I stood up cautiously.
Then, without warning, I sprinted off into the woods, like a deer does when they hear something.
I knew better than to stay out in the open...I wonder what Finnick thought of my hiding efforts....
As I came upon an cave-like looking place, I slowly entered inside of it, looking around ready to fight.
There was no one inside, but that didn't mean that there hadn't been before!
I emptied the backpack of it's contents and was surprised at all of the good!
A canteen, with water purifying stuff, a rope, three daggers and a thick jacket.
I took the daggers and placed them where it would be easy to get to them, then I put the rest of the stuff back in the back pack and started searching again.
By the time the sun had set, I'd managed to find a rabbit...Which was actually pretty good eatin!
I'd filled the canteen with water and had went back to my pine tree, climbed up it and started to sleep.
But then, the big lights and loud music came on, waking me up.
It was a girl from twelve...That was it.
Things looked like they were going to be really slow and I was dreaded it dearly!
As I fell back asleep, I hoped that tonight would be peaceful...
