Hey guys, have you ever seen the show Flight 29 Down? Well that's where I got the idea for this fan fiction. I'm using the characters from THG and some of my own, but I switched up their personalities a little bit.
Katniss- leader, class president.
Annie- quiet, doesn't talk much and just goes with the flow.
Glimmer- Arrogant, clueless
Cato- Strong, has a crush on Glimmer
Peeta- has a crush on Katniss, but also is a leader
Rue- survivor, knows how live using the land
Thresh- new kid to school, keeps to himself a lot,
Finnick- Strong, caring, understanding
Jacqueline(foxface)- the one everyone can depend on when needed too.
Johanna- strong, does what she wants.
Clove/Marvel/Sam- group of three best friends.
Hamitch- clueless captain who is sober..most of the time.
Also that this: means video diary, this means flashback.
I stare out the plane window, all there is ocean, that's all there has been for the last three hours. And that is all what there will be for another few hours. It's been raining for a while now, so you hardly even see the ocean. Everything is so dull and boring. I sigh, we've been traveling non stop for hours now. The travel will be worth it in the end though. There was an essay contest writing about your dream career and the top eleven essays would get half sponsorship to a camping adventure on an island of of the coast of Japan.
We spent the past year fundraising the other half of the cost of the trip. Everyone that has been on the trip have told us that this trip will be something we will never forget.
It was dead silent, it was like everyone was dead. I get up to use the bathroom. I feel the plane shift, and I almost fall onto Johanna's seat. Johanna is strong willed and will say what is on he mind, thank God I caught myself before she could tell me what she thought about me falling on her. "Buckle up now! You sit down and buckle up!" Our captain Haymitch screams at all of us. I rush back to my seat wondering what the heck is going on.
I feel the plane start to shift and slowly start to decrease in height. That weird falling feeling you get goes on for several more minutes, I'm suddenly jerked forward. "Am I dead? Someone pinch me." One of the other passengers Glimmer says. I can't stand her, she is perfection, blonde stick straight hair, green eyes. But she is an absolute terrible person. I heard one time that she got pregnant, but she got an abortion, other rumors say she got an abortion because she didn't like the baby's daddy. That's awful taking away a precious life like that.
"Where are we?" Peeta asks. I've heard rumors that he has a crush on me, I hope they're true because I've had a crush on him forever. My dad died when I was 11 in a car accident, and when that happened, my mom fell into a deep depression, and I had to take care of my younger sister Prim who was 7 at the time. At one point, I was starving and wanted to die. I was going through the trash can at the bakery. The baker's wife came out of the bakery and told me to leave and not go through her trash. I walk to a nearby tree, preparing myself to die. I see the baker's wife come out again and this time with one of her sons. I think his name is Peeta and he's in my grade. His mother gave him a black eye, but through me the bread. I went to pick it up and mouthed a thank you to him. I was too scared to talk to him. And ever since then, I've had a crush on him.
Captain Haymitch gets up from the flyer spot, "Looks like we're in a bit of trouble here guys." He says, not sounding to sympathetically, which is surprising because whatever mess he got us into is his fault.
Captain Haymitch walks out through the door, the rest of us follow him. Where are we? An island? "Where are we?" Cato asks, "Well, I don't know." Haymitch says. Great, we were supposed to be at that island in a few hours. "We're not going to be here that long guys. I'm sure there is a private island for a cruise line." Glimmer says. Great, I'm stuck on an island with these freaks for who knows how long. The only good part of this would be I would be able to spend some time with Peeta.
This island is beautiful. It's almost like a spa or a private island for a cruise line. It's filled with palm trees and a little farther back is wooded areas.
Great, we're stuck here on this island, no clue where we are. Captain Haymitch sits us all down and gives us a lecture. "Ok Kitties. Any questions?" I stay quiet, and catch a few glances at Katniss. I don't like mostly everyone here, but maybe Katniss and I could become really close, or at least friends. "When's rescue coming?" Johanna demands, I can tell she doesn't mean funny business right now. "Well, planes have a tracker on them to track down the plane in case of an emergency." He's interrupted by Glimmer, "Well at least we won't be here long then." She sounds relieved. "Yeah, too bad we don't have one of those." Haymitch interrupts Glimmer.
It's dead silent. I think we all just realized how bad of a situation we are in. No food, no water, and no shelter. "Well, I'm going to go explore the island, we need to know what's on here. Because for all we know, there could be an army base on the North shore. Do I have any volunteers to come with me?" Haymitch says, we need to stay together. I look around and to my surprise I actually see that Clove, Marvel, and Sam all volunteer. All three of them are normally not quiet, but they're inseparable.
Haymitch walks over to the plane thats dug into the sandy beach. He get's out backpacks and packaged food that you just add water. He grabs bottled water and packs it into four packs. "You're not taking all the food are you?" Glimmer asks. "See you Kitties." Haymitch says and walks into the wooded area behind us with Clove, Marvel, and Sam. "We'l be back whenever." He screams
"Guys, we don't know how long we'll be here, but I think we need to start to look for food, water, and shelter." I speak up. "Who put you in charge?" Cato fires back, I take a deep breathe controlling my anger, "No one put me in charge, but we need to survive if we want to get home." I say back, "Woah woah woah, we're not going to be here that long." Glimmer chimes in. "Look guys, we need to work together if we want to survive." Jacqueline says. I've known Jacqueline for years, she's one of my closest friends and she's also the only one knows about my major crush on Katniss.
"Glimmer and Clove, try to find anything we can use in the plane, Jacqueline and Rue try to start a fire, Thresh and Johanna collect some wood for a fire, and Annie and Finnick help out whoever needs help. And Katniss and I will try to find a place where we can make camp." No one was taking charge, and we need a leader, so I naturally try to take charge. Glimmer and Cato sigh loudly, I have a feeling that they won't be much help right now.
Katniss and I walk around look for a place to make camp. "So how have you been?" I ask to Katniss trying to break the awkward silence. "Considering that we just had a plane crash, pretty good. How about you?" Katniss says, I chuckle a little, "I'm good." There's another awkward silence, "Peeta, are the rumors that go around school true?" My heart beats rapidly, how'd she know about that. I thought only Jacqueline knew. "You don't have to answer that if that makes you feel awkward." She quickly adds again. I hope she drops the subject.
"I think this is a good place." I say pointing at a small clearing up ahead. It's a patch of grass and a few coconut trees surrounding it. It's big enough to have a tent, if the plane has one in there. "I don't know. It's wet." Katniss says sounding a little worried. "Why? What lives in wet ground?" I ask curiously. I still can't believe that I'm talking with the Katniss Everdeen. I don't think she has ever had a boyfriend. I don't know how, she has olive skin, grey blue eyes, brown wavy hair that goes a little past her boobs. "Well insects live there. Like bugs we don't want to deal with." She explains, I don' question her. "I think we should go back to the plane, we shouldn't go too far." I say, Katniss nods and we head back to camp.
I don't see why Peeta is bossing us around. I mean it's not like we're going to be here that long. Rescue is coming. I wait until I see everyone else walk away to do their duties that Peeta had assigned them to do. "Cato, since we're going to be rescued soon, we probably won't be able to go to that island we were supposed to go to, so might as well have some fun." I say, I guide him down towards the water and splash him. "Hey." He screams and we start to chase each other through the water and tackle each other. Trying to have some fun. I think Peeta and especially Katniss. I never see her at the football games on Friday nights. I don't think she went to the past three homecomings. I wonder what she does with her life?
Cato and I walk back to where the others were. "Why weren't you doing your share of work?" Thresh asks. Wow, I'm pretty sure that is the first time I've ever heard him talk, "Um, because we're not going to be here that long." I say seriously "Why are you all listening to Peeta. By the end of the day, we're going to be rescued." I say. "I'm hungry. What's for dinner?" I ask. The group starts to stare, "We're not having dinner tonight. We need to conserve the food." Rue says. "But I'm starving." I complain, I'm very thin, but one thing I never do is skip meals. "No, you're hungry, if we run out of food, then you'll be starving, which takes three weeks." Rue says, she's so smart.
Peeta and Katniss walk back to the rest of us are. "Any luck?" asks Finnick. The both just shake their heads. "I guess we'll just set up something here." Katniss says. "Glimmer, did you and Cato go through the plane supplies?" Peeta asks, I look around to see if he's joking. "No, we're not going to be here long." I say. He can't be serious about looking through the plane. "I'll do it myself." Peeta says and walks to the plane, "I'll go too." Katniss says and follows Peeta.
I follow Peeta towards the plane. I can't believe I asked him about him liking me. I hate how Glimmer and Cato think that survival is a joke. This is a life of death situation here. We could be dead in one week. I start to sort through the stuff. "Peeta." I say, "What's this?" I ask, I flip through it. Maybe it's a sketch book? On one page there was a picture of the sunset, the different shades of orange collide together. Another is a picture of woods, sort of like the ones we have back home. I see one page, it's a portrait of me. The details are so intense, every feature is perfect. I think the drawing actually makes me prettier than I actually am. Peeta walks over to me and blushes a little seeing that I went through his sketch book. "Oh, nothing. It's just my sketch book." I laugh a little. We go through more of the supplies on the plane. There's a first aid kit, 20 bottled waters, packaged food, two tents, a solar power charger, a lighter (now we can have a fire!) and other survival things.
The silence is once again killing me. I open my mouth to speak, but Peeta beats me to it. "The rumors are true Katniss." He says. It takes me a few minutes to remember what he was talking about. Oh, he means the rumors about him liking me. "Oh." Is all I can say. "Are you mad?" Peeta asks me. Why would I be mad? I wonder about that. "No. The rumors are true about me liking you too." I say it really soft, almost mouse like. I wasn't even sure he heard me until I felt his lips press against mine. His lips feel warm and soft against mine. I pull away and we both smile at each other.
We pack up the tent and begin to set it up off the sand but on a grassy area overlooking the beach and the ocean. I sleep in the tent with Annie, Glimmer, Rue, Jacqueline, and Johanna. Peeta sleeps with the guys in the other tent. We ate some of the food we found packaged. It makes me feel uncomfortable about eating this packaged food because this food supply won't last forever.
A storm came over during the middle of the night. I can hear the wind howling. I can't close my eyes. I keep thinking some ax murderer will come up behind me to kill me. I wonder about Haymitch and the other three are handling this weather. I don't even think they have some type of shelter to protect them against this awful storm.
