5... I looked at all the strong tributes. Enobaria, Brutus, and Gloss.
4... Then I looked at the others in their alliance. Seeder and Cashmere.
3. I see a muscled man who was very tall.
2... I peered to the side, and saw Gale. His eyes had a deadly look.
1... I looked at the Cornucopia.
Everyone took off running towards the center of the arena that had an abundant amount of food and weapons. I was at a stand still shock but my feet kept carrying me towards the center, where people began to die off. I searched for Gale, as he was getting swords,bows for me, nets, and food.
"Katniss!" He yelled. He took off into the north where the water was. He expected me to follow him, so I grabbed a backpack until the little she-demon, Clove, threw a knife at me and it landed into my pack. I picked myself up and ran with the pack on my back, so if she tried to strike me again, it would land there.
My journey going north was difficult, but I reached the lake. A twig snapped to my left side and my neck snapped as well to see who it was.
"Catnip." Gale said, coming with a warm embrace and wrapping his arms around my head.
"Gale." I whispered into his buff chest.
His warmth pulled away from me and he examined my face. He realized I was fine, and took my hand and lead me in the direction he came from. About 1/4 mile away, he stopped and moved a thick layer of vines and it showed a very hidden cave.
"We can survive here." He said and slid under the vine. Gale was under, into the cave and had his hand out so I could slide under with him. The dark cave was big enough for about 4 people.
"Its amazing." I searched around the cave and found a little grooved in spot that looked like two people were supposed to sleep. The game makers probably did this, to created a romance between Gale and I, which I personally had no problem with. I could see him out the corner of my eye, and he was watching my closely, like my every move.
"So, what do we do?" He whispered to me.
"We wait. We kill. Survive." I said, digging into my pack pulling out beef jerky, fruits, lettuce, and two fish in a wrap.
"Whats in yours?" I tilt my head up to look at his beautiful grey eyes.
He turned he body around to unzip his pack and pulled out a gallon of water, a water purifier, wrapped lamb that was enough for about 3 people to eat for two days, an a loaf of bread.
"I grabbed three packs, and they all have the same thing." He chuckled.
Then I realized, he had a good strategy. Taking others food to them to not eat, and reduce our chance of starving, plus we were sharing our food.
I dug his face in his knees and sat on the opposite side of the cave.
"Gale?" I crawl towards him and sit on his left side as I heard a small weep.
"Gale. Its okay. I will die, and you can live. You have so much more to live for. My siblings only like me on reaping day, because thats the on,y day of the ear that I'm become that 'big, older sister' that protects. If it comes down to us, I will let you live." I say.
His face came up and his big, yet gentle hands grabbed onto my face, and he planted the most elegant and pleasant kiss my my lips. At first I was frozen, then my lips followed the pattern of his, locking together perfectly like a lock and a key.
