Merry Thanksgiving! I was bored so I started writing this, and now I'm really getting into it. I will be having a points system and I will accept character submissions. The form is at the bottom. Soo... Please Enjoy!
Will shot another arrow, missing the target completely once again. He groaned in frustration. He had been practicing for what felt like months, yet he still wasn't getting any better.
Will was one of the many adolescents between the ages of ten through fifteen in the huge country of Araluen, a fact that didn't still his nerves at all. The number of adolescents seemed small to Will, even tiny.
In less than an hour, Will and all of the other Araluen children would be herded into Redmont Square for the reaping. Will knew that his chances of being reaped were high. He had been forced to sign up for tesseray in the previous years. By this, his fourth year, he would have his name in the lottery more than two hundred times.
His real worry was for Alyss, though. He knew that she was in much more danger of being reaped than Will was. Yet, she didn't seem to be worried at all.
He figured that she was just trying not to panic. That would be understandable. Yet it seemed like something more...unnatural.
Will tried to mimic her calm nature, but it was impossible for just wasn't willing to forget Jenny. If only she were still alive...
"Will!" Came a voice from behind Will. He turned, surprised that Alyss would be visiting him at that time.
"I thought you would be training," Will said, wondering whether Alyss could hear his heart pounding.
"What would be the point?" She said, rolling her eyes. "They train you enough if you get reaped."
Will sighed when she said this. "I just think that we should be prepared."
Alyss looked at him. "I think we should enjoy our time now," She said softly.
Just then the reaping bell tolled. Their signal to go to the center of Redmont, Redmont Square with hundreds of other children.
Will felt a terrible weight settle in his chest. Reaping time had come.
Alyss turned and began calmly striding toward the square. When she noticed that Will wasn't with her, she turned and looked over her shoulder. She glanced at him, shook her head, and continued on her way.
Will stood there for a second, watching Alyss confidently walk to Redmont Square. He wished that he was feeling like that. Confident that he would not be reaped.
Suddenly, he got a strong feeling of someone watching him. He turned, just in time to see a cloaked figure disappear into the woods.
