Hope and the other contestants were all dressed and ready to go for the biggest moment in their lives
I can't believe it was time for this. All of my one-week training had led up to this. The Survivor Games.
Me and everyone else were seated in a huge, bronze aircraft getting transported to The
Area, where the Survivor Games takes place. The Area is differant evey year, with lots of tricks and suprises. You'll never know what you'll find. My survival suit made by Raymondo was perfect, a tank top with a hoodie and waterproof pants. The hoddie had slots so I could hopefully put some knives. My shoes were sneakers that had the ability to make me run faster. I had sneaked in the map(though already memorized) the slavant couple gave me. I havn't seen them since then.
Several doctors came around, inserting a 1-inch diameter disk into each person's arm. It was a tracker, so we didn't get "lost" in the Area. They sewn up my cut (though I could have stitched it up better), then seemed to disapeered. I smile at Soho and Laurie, hopeing they remembered our plan. The plan is to go 2,000 steps at a 45 degree angle from the Supplies Place's(where the few supplies inthe Area are) center and meet there.
Finally, the aircraft hooked up to a building. We are told to to each go into a tube. Once those doors close, we are transported underground and up to The Area.
I get a good look here. This looks just like one of those savannahs we study in our Old World Class. They were in a place called Africa, a continent compleatly destroyed by World War VI. Looks like Suplies Place is scattered in a large clearing of the thick, large savannah grass. A herd of what appears to be black and white horses roams in the distance. I spot the a variety of swords and knives and a backpack full of other things tucked away together, something that would go unnoticed if I didn't know where it is.
We are all on small podiums about 4ft off the ground, circling the Supplies Place Canter. As promised, I am closest to my precious supplies. Zia told me not to fight that hard, for a good majority of killing is done here. Get what I need, then get out of here fast.
An announcer comes up over a invisable speaker."Attention Contestants! You are currently being filmed live.A counter will come on and count to 60 seconds. When the timer is up, you may get off your podiums. Anyone who doesn't follow this will be gone( I'm thinking: Killed, you idiot) from these Games. that is all. Remember; outwit, outlast, and outplay! let the Survivor Games Begin!!!
A timer with a drone feiminnine voice starts counting dow. 60..(57 seconds later) 3, 2, 1, START.
Everyone jumps from their podium, with a hard landing. I take a more gentler jump, paying off. I grab the sheath of swords and knives and the backpack aand run at a 45 degree angle. This guy from Territory 8 tries to slingshot a heavy rock, but i dodge just in time. Don't bother to kill that guy yet. I'll have plenty more. like a girl from territory 7 I am now slashing with a knife. Not fatal, but definently weakens her. Let somelse finish her off.
I don't bother to look behind and see who is getting killed and who is strong. Soho told me he'll be scoping out that place and give us a report a little later.
500 steps into my journey, I decide to check The Area map, kneeling down with the long grasses concealing me. I sure the cameras are still filming The Supplies Place, so I'm not too worried about being caught. After 2000 paces to our destination, there should be a water hole very close to that.
1500 paces later, I arrive at our destinanation with Laurie already setting up.
"Good timing, girl. Was starting to think you got killed. Did you know there's a fresh pond right near here?"she says, unaware I already knew."Lets go through what we salvaged".
Lauri got some bows and arrows with a flashlight, a few blankets and some dried fruit. My backpack contained iodine (thank goodness) some water bottles, string, matches and a cream that Lauri informed was extremely deadly if you got it on your skin. We were both happy with what we got and prepared to set up camp for the night, for it was almost dark.
Suddenly, there was rustle through the bushes...
Author's note: Happy Survivor Games! It finally started! And note that comment if you want to add a charcter you made up in as a contestant. Include the name, gender, territory(Refrence to chapter 1 to find out what each of the nine territories do, for its much differant then the districts in the book), how your character looks and behaves, and if they have allies(with who) . I'll try to make them as realistic as possible.
