As the horn sounded, I tensed, pushing myself off the podium and hitting the ground sprinting towards the Cornucopia. The other person from my district could die now, for all I cared. Almost without thinking, I dodged a knife, my arm hooking around the strap of a backpack, and then I was off and running again, dashing through the forest to find a safe place.
QUAILFEATHER, MOTHSHADOW, FIREFLOWER:
The horn sounded. I made some weird squeaky noise in my throat as I whirled, stumbling off the podium to sprint clumsily into the forest area.
I shook my head to clear it as the horn sounded, blasting my eardrums. Wincing at the loud sound, I jumped off my podium, dashing towards the Cornucopia and snatching a bottle of alcohol on a shelf, along with the rag sitting next to it. Seeing that the bloodbath was ensuing, I made a break for the forest.
I didn’t want weapons, I thought as the horn sounded. But I did want food. I leaped off my podium, ducking someone’s flailing arm to snatch up a basket of bread and fruit. Food. I pivoted and sprinted away from everyone else.
As the horn sounded, it seemed like I was already inside the Cornucopia, snatching a black bow and a quiver of arrows. I slung them both over my shoulder and made a break for the woods.
SAGERIVER, FEATHERBLAZE, SWANFEATHER:
As I jumped off the podium, I locked eyes with the other two people I had met during training before. We had already established that we wanted to work together for a little while. We split up, dashing between sparring people to snatch items and run into the forest together.
CHESTNUTLEAP, FLINTRIVER, THISTLEDUSK, LEOPARDSPOTS:
I only had one thought in mind: run. So as soon as the horn sounded, I whirled on my podium, leaping for the undergrowth as I dashed mindless through the trees to safety.
I don’t want to die, I thought. I leaped for the Cornucopia, but was intercepted by a large male tribute holding throwing knives. He hissed viciously and before I knew it, one of those blades was embedded in my chest, I was bleeding, my vision flickered… I stumbled and fell to the ground, the grass painted red, everything in shades of crimson… everything was black.
I stared in horror at the two girls I had just killed. Numb, I pulled my knives from their dead, still-twitching bodies and whirled, running into the woods. What have I done?
I watched a male tribute kill two girls, then run into the forest. I wasn’t following him, that was for sure. I ran in the opposite direction from him, away from the Cornucopia.
I knew I’d hurt myself out here; I was the clumsy type. I saw the girl from my district, Kestrelmist, dash away into the woods and leave me behind. Well, I won’t be working with her anytime soon. I circled the Cornucopia, then closed in, grabbing a first aid kit and sprinting away.
I leaped off my podium. There was another male tribute by my side. We each grabbed shovels, making a silent truce not to kill each other right now, and ran our separate ways.
Almost all the tributes were gone now. I ducked behind my podium for shelter, then when the last tribute left, I crept out again, camping out in the Cornucopia with the leftover resources. I dragged the bodies of two female tributes under the roof with me until the helicopter picked them out.
I was the second-to-last tribute there. I snatched a lighter and a coil of rope before jogging away.
I spotted the last weapon, some sais, which I didn’t know how to use properly. Oh, well, better than nothing. I snatched them and dashed away.
