No one has been on for a while. Myself included. (Junior year, sorry.) Happy 2013!
Taylor moves away from Isabella and collects materials to use for the traps they are building. Taylor’s heart pounds as she hears Isabella call to her, she notes the terror in her voice. Taylor runs towards the source of the noise and finds Isabella covered. “What do I do?” Taylor calls to her, she does not think well under pressure.
In a blink of an eye Taylor is hit by an arrow and a cannon goes off, signalling her death. Isabella removes the net covering her and walks towards Taylor. “I’m sorry,” she whispers as she closes Taylor’s eyes. Isabella removes the arrow on Taylor’s chest and puts a flower on her hand. She then walks away before Taylor’s body is recovered by the Capitol, finishes her traps and returns to Danny.
Isabella and Taylor walked for about ten meters until they began to set up traps. “Try to look around for stuff we can use to set up traps, they should come from around here so that it wouldn’t be too noticeable. Don’t go too far, though. Let’s meet back here in an hour or so.” Isabella said as she started walking towards the right picking up vines, branches, leaves and small logs.
Isabella set up some traps turning vines into ropes and camouflaging them as if they weren’t there. However, she made sure to remember where the traps were, knowing that if she’d done them correctly, she’d be dead instantly. After a few minutes, she is suddenly hit in the head and is covered by a net. “TAYLOR! HELP!!”
Taylor squatted over the damp grass as she nibbled on the food Danny gave her. “I thought it would shield us from the storm, it would of if it is was a normal storm. I guess the game makers really wanted us out of the grass.” She sighed and put her bottom to the ground. “I guess we should do inventory, I’m not sure how much we’ve got left.”
She emptied the bags and sorted the contents on the floor. “We’ve got enough weapons,” she laughed as she looked to the tall pile, “If we keep to our portions the food will last for another 3 days. Water is the problem.”
Isabella held the dried fruits in her hand and sighed, “The game makers made that storm to injure us, and when we found the cave for shelter, they destroyed it. I haven’t heard much cannons go off and maybe they want a tribute dead. They want to show us that they’re in power to control and do anything they want. Maybe someone tried to break the rules or something.” She tried to analyze how they thought, trying to stay one step ahead. But she was confused as well, not sure what to do.
Taylor emptied their bags and checked their inventory. They had enough food for a few more days and more than enough weapons. “Water is easy to find. We just have to look for where most plants grow,” she said as she ate some fruit. “Danny, you should stay on guard while Taylor and I’ll do a perimeter check and set some traps.”
OOC: Taylor reply to the next para I post.
ooc: Taylor, you reply to Danny’s para first. We’re going out in a few and I have no time to reply. So if I get back and you haven’t replied, then I’ll go ahead.
But I have no para’s to reply to yet… #sigh
Danny tried to entertain himself while the girls were out but they were gone for a while and so he started to get worried. He hadn’t heard any cannons but he doubted his hearing when he was up against the storm. Eventually he could hear Isabella’s familiar footsteps coming in to the cave. He smiled warmly at her when she entered. ”how are you gorgeous?”
Isabella had no luck in finding nuts so she gathered firewood to cook the squirrel instead. She returned back to the cave welcomed by Danny’s smile. ”How are you gorgeous?” he asked. She smiled back and sat beside him as she said “I’m doing good. How about you?” She arranged the firewood and lit a fire to cook the squirrel, trusting the hail storm to cover the smoke that escapes the cave. Then she looked at him and saw how wounded he was. She got worried and started searching their belongings for anything to treat him. “What happened to you back there? Who did you fight?”
Danny lay silently on the cold hard floor and listened intently as the storm still attacked outside. The thick stone creating the roof of the cave blocked any wind or thunderous drops but the storm still slipped in through the small entrance. Danny lifted himself on his elbows and then tried to sit up so that his back was on the cave’s wall. He ached all over and he could tell that something funny was going on with the bones located in his right wrist. Danny rubbed it, trying to sooth the pain, but the agony grew stronger. He inwardly swore because he was right-handed. Danny let out a breath didn’t know he had been holding and closed his eyes until the girls returned.
Isabella tried her best to be strong. Danny was badly injured and she still wasn’t sure of what Taylor is capable of. The hail storm was still ongoing and there was no sign of other tributes. She saw Taylor shivering from the cold winds and noticed that she was too. “Maybe we should-” and then from the corner of her eye, she saw a shadow and immediately loaded her arrow and shot at it. She waited for a cannon to see if it was a tribute but there was none. Slowly, they walked where she shot and instead of a tribute, they found a dead squirrel. “Well, we have meat. Look around if it kept some nuts around and then let’s meet back at the cave.”
