6. Gotta Run

              I stand in the tube and listen to the count down. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, and the tube goes up. I now stand on a platform. I know not to step off our I'll be blown to bits. I look around for a strategy. I know I gotta run. I see the Cornucopia and know not to go there. I look and see backpacks around the platforms. I'll grab a bag and run into the woods. I'll then run until I think I'm safe climb a tree to sleep in and check my bag. And in the morning go look for water. I look and see Tresh and he looks at the bags and the woods I nod. I assume he's telling me to go for the bags. I listen to the countdown 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, I take in a couple deep breaths and prepare to run. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Let the seventy-fourth Hunger Games begin! 

               I take off sprinting toward the bags grab one and sprint into the woods. I keep sprinting then I slow down. But I keep on going. When I'm about a mile or so into the woods, someone grabs me a throws me to the ground. I see it's the boy for 4. The other careers aren't  there though. 
Strange. I scream. Then someone, Tresh I think, pulls him off me. Then grabs a rock and smashes it into his skull. "You okay?" Tresh asks me. I nod. "Okay come on." he puts out his hand and I grab it. He pulls me up and we run. We stop by a small pond. Then we hear canons there are 11. "Thirteen left," I say. Tresh nods and we check our packs. I have; extra socks, a water bottle, iodine, dried fruit, dried meat, and some rope. Tresh has; a sleeping pack, a water bottle, iodine, crackers, dried fruit, and a knife. "Not much," he says. I nod. We decide on setting out for berries, fruits, roots nuts, and water tomorrow.
