Hey everyone! So this is my first fan fic and I hope you enjoy. Sorry if nothing makes sense in advance because this is my first one so I pretty much have no idea what I'm doing, so yea I hope you enjoy. Oh and I guess this is rated T for mild swearing maybe and violence. I mean this is the hunger games. ;) Oh! And I guess I should also do a disclaimer because last time I didn't do that I got in trouble on YouTube. So, I don't own the hunger games this all goes to Suzanne Collins for her brilliant work and for giving me an idea for a really cool story, and some of the stuff I use might be from the book/movie just to get the story rolling. So this is taking place when Katniss gets caught in the fire during the games. And I decided to use the setting from the movie and not the book just case I thought the river was better than the little pool.
Keep running, keep running. Come on Katniss you can make it just keep running.
And that's when the tree falls right in my path. I know I'm in trouble now. This tree is huge and it's burning brighter than the sun. I'm beginning to feel claustrophobic now. I feel like I'm trapped in a box, where I can't escape. I'm beginning to panic now. My breathing is quickening. My throat burns from the smoke and heat.
Come on you got this girl I think. Just run around this tree and you'll be fine. You can do this.
I've made my way around the tree now and am beginning to run again. My eyes are starting to tear from the smoke and it's making it harder to see. That's when the first fire ball flies towards me. I hear it hiss past my ear. I'm sprinting faster now with a newfound fear. The second fire ball blasts through the air and I have to duck in order to escape its fiery path. This causes me to trip. I land on pile of rocks and scrape my hands and knees. I look up to see a fire ball skin my right leg. I clench my teeth through the pain. This hurts so much. But I have to keep moving because in no matter of time another fire ball blasts right into the place I was just sitting.
I'm beginning to think that the fire is starting to recede, when I step on a bear trap. I let go a gut wrenching cry, and as I crumple to the ground another fire ball blasts right into my forehead. The pain is unbearable. I clench my right calf in hopes to somehow stop the pain but it's not working. Definitely not working. Next is my face. Fortunately it didn't catch fire, but its left badly burnt and bruised, and I'm dizzy. My vision is all blurry and I think I'm seeing stars. This has happened to me once before when Gale and I had gone hunting in the woods and I had slipped on some ice to feel the exact same results. Multiply that by 20 and you now have the pain in my head. The word concussion pops into my brain. Oh how I just want to fall into unconsciousness and escape this pain. But I can't. I have to keep moving to avoid being burned alive. I have to escape for Prim.
I'm up on my feet again doing a half limp half jog. Oh how pathetic I must look like right now, but the pain is my excuse. The pain wants me to crawl in a dark cave and die. To escape this pain would be luxurious, but there is no such luxury in the Hunger Games. I'm at the edge of the tree line now. I carelessly stumble into the river up ahead. Not thinking about whether there are any tributes nearby. Hopefully if there are any they're just as wounded as me.
I sink below the water and scream. This is where no one can hear my pain. This is where no one can see me weak, crumbling under the pain. This is where I can die.
Alright so that's the end of chapter 1 and there are many to follow, hopefully quickly. So I hope you enjoyed my first ever fanfic and sorry for any mistakes that I didn't catch, I'll try and do better next time. Any ways even more action packed events to unfold. Seriously, like I really want to publish that right now but I can't because it's late and I have school tomorrow. Toodles!
