Ok this chapter is, I think anyway, one of my best. I really enjoyed writing this one Review please and I will love you forever ^-^
But then I remembered why I was there. Standing around while so many girls died. For Dan. I wanted to be with him so badly. No matter how much the Howell Games affected me as long as I got to be with him once they were over then I would put it all behind me. I would forget about all the people who had died...or at least I hoped I could. It wouldn't be easy but with Dan by my side nothing else would be important to me.
A gust of wind sent a shiver down my body and I decided sleeping in the cave was a better idea. I prefered the rockwall though. There was something about falling asleep under the stars that made everything seem...better. As if nothing mattered anymore. My mind was at peace as I drifted off while moon floated silently above me. I found my way back to the cave and crawled through the entrance. Before i could sleep I took out my water bottle taking a few gulps and then placed my bag on the cave floor. As I lay on my back I heard the sound of 2 cannons exploding. I didn't bother to leave the cave to look at the projections, I already knew it was Mima and Mary's faces I was going to see. The light of the projections filtered through the entrance but I still lay in the shadows. My eyelids were growing heavy when I realised that besides me there was only 3 tribute left. Alex, Ali and Lara. I had completely forgotten about the insane blood thirsty Lara and her sword skills.
"If I do die", I thought to myself, "then I just don't want it to be Lara who kills me". The way I saw it, there would be nothing worse than that. The last thing I would see would be Lara's cruel smile. The last thing I would hear would be her laugh and the sound her her sword slicing through me. The last thing I would think would be...Dan.
I had managed to fall asleep but from the awful images in my head, I wish I had stayed awake. In my nightmares, I was in the centre of the arena. Alone at first. But I then turned around to see a girl whose skin was more orange than Dan's when he looked mexican. Sara, the first tribute to die. She stared at me for a moment until after a few seconds, an explosion killed her right before my eyes. I heard a noise behind me and saw Grecia. Swaying from side to side, before breaking into the dance for Gangham style. She then fell to the ground blood pouring out of small wounds on her body.
Only a little further away from Grecia was Jasmine from District 10, the one I had pushed off the bridge. Her dead eyes bore into mine. I then noticed that she was soaking wet. Water dripped from all over her body, her hair, her face and landed in droplets on the grass. A red patch then grew in her chest, where my arrow had struck her. But she stayed standing. All around me there was dead tributes, forming a large circle. All of them killed in brutal way. Some covered in cake from the cannons, some with deep sword wounds from Lara. Mima with the gaping hole in her head from her hammer accident. My knees went weak and I could take it now more. I knelt on the ground and covered my face with my hands.
"Wake up! Wake up!" I cried, rocking myself back and forth. "Make it stop!" Then someone whispered to me in reply.
"Everything will be ok, Devon"
I looked up to find Kathryn standing over me. She smiled at me.
"Everything will be ok." She repeated. Then her death repeated in my head. The spear was thrown at her and she flew backwards to the ground, the same tortured cries I hear before filling the air. But they were soon drowned out by my screams as I woke up in the cave. Panting and shaking with fear.
