Chapter 7, Survival is Key

Sixty seconds...

That's how long they had to wait on those paddle stones until to gong went off. Amy looked at the goods held within the cornucopia, the further in you go, the better the goods, in front of her was a sheet of plastic and some backpacks, the nearer the cornucopia there was weapons and supplies. And there, a couple of feet from the mouth of the cornucopia, was a bow and a a sack full of arrows
It's there for me, that was meant for me Amy thought.

Fifty seconds...

Back in district twelve, Cream, Rouge, Tails and Shadow watched the countdown take place. Rouge took a hold of Cream's hand and held it tightly, so did Tails. Shadow stood by the door, his fist clenched in fear, anger and worry. he leaned against the door frame not wanting to watch but knowing he should, to make sure she was okay, that would she survive the blood bath of the cornucopia.
“You can do it Amy” he muttered under his breath “We believe in you”

Forty seconds...

Whereas Knuckles, he stayed out in the fields, he did not want to watch the countdown, he knew that Amy would make it out alive, he knew that she will survive. She has to.
“I believe in you Amy” he muttered “i know you'll survive”

Thirty seconds...

In the Eggtropolis, the people of the capitol cheered as the countdown descended. Haymitch stood in the penthouse, he looked over the crowd in disgust, how could they cheer for such a thing?! Although he didn't say it, he truly believed in the two tributes. For once, he truly believed one of his tributes could win.

Twenty seconds...

In the Eggtropolis, deep in Eggman's base, Sonic watched the countdown. His fists clenched in anger and fear. A small tear rolled down his cheek, oh how he wanted to break free, he wanted to run over there, take her in his arms and run away with her and never return. But try as he could, the chains would not give way, either he was getting weaker, or the chains became stronger. But that wasn't an important matter. What mattered was Amy.
“I know you can do it Amy” he mutters “I believe in you, I love you”

Ten seconds...

Amy's heart raced, her palms became sweaty.

Nine...

She looked over at the other tributes, some began getting ready, others remained frozen in fear

Eight...

She looked over to Ari, he looked at her, a small shake came from his head, as if to say No, don't you dare!

Seven...

Amy looked back at the front, she too started to get ready to run.

Six...

She looked over at the bow, That is mine, I'm going to get it! She thought

Five...

Back in district twelve, Cream tightened her grip on Rouge and Tails, she hoped, that Amy would survive. She felt her fear.

Four...

Amy thought, how could she get to water, where would she go from here? She looked around her, there was some high ground a good couple of kilometers from here, if she ran towards there today, she could make it there by nightfall.

Three...

Amy was lost in her thoughts, she didn't know how to tackle the games, her priority, stay away from the tributes, oh and always be armed, that's right, always be armed, that's what Shadow told her.

Two...

Amy looked back at the cornucopia, when she did, she realized it was the last second! Quickly she got into position, ready to run.

One...

The gong went off and everyone ran off their paddle stone, Ari ran right into the woods, not wanting to take any risks. Amy ran into the cornucopia, not too far in but still in it. She looked around her, many of the careers had already made it into the cornucopia, killing anyone that crossed their path. It was all to horrific.

Not wanting to leave empty handed, Amy noticed a backpack, with a small axe not too far from it. Amy immediately ran towards them, she ran as fast as she could, she had just managed to grab the backpack when she tripped, she quickly looked behind her to find a black hedgehog had been killed behind her, she looked up to find the girl from district two looking at her, ready to throw a knife directly at her. She never misses. Adrenaline rushed through Amy's body as she used the backpack as a shield, the knife got lodged in the backpack. Amy then got up, grabbed the axe that was a couple of feet next to her and ran off, she knew the girl wouldn't follow her, not with all the supplies luring her back.
Thanks for the knife! Amy thought as she ran off into the woods.

Amy ran deep into the woods, she ran for a good hour, none stop, she wanted to keep as much distance from her and the remaining tributes as possible. At one point she tripped and fell down a steep ditch, but once she got back up, she continued running. Amy then altered from running to walking, but never stopping. Not once.

Finally after about three hours of walking and running, Amy stopped, she fell back on the tree trunk and took a minute to catch her breath. She then placed down her axe beside her and took off her backpack. Amy dislodged the knife from the bag, it was a good knife, two sided, one smooth side for slicing, one rough side for sawing. Amy smiled slightly and placed the blade in her pocket, she know had two means of defence. Amy then opened her back and examined the contents, there was a sleeping bag, some crackers,some beef strips, a flask that was bone dry and some matches. Amy was partially annoyed at the flask
And you couldn't be bothered to fill it up! She thought in irritation.
Suddenly a loud boom was heard, it didn't startle Amy that much, she knew what it was. It was the canon to signify the death of a tribute. A few more booms are heard, twelve, that's twelve dead so far. Only thirteen of them left.

Soon night drew in and after a tasteless meal of roasted mice, Amy climbed up a tree and strapped herself in, careful she wouldn't fall out. After a couple of minutes of peace, she heard some faint rustling, she slightly turned to the source of the noise, only to find that a it was the rustling of a fire. Someone had obviously started one to keep warm. Amy sighed in irritation. She knew all to well that, that was a great way to get killed.

Soon enough she heard the loud scream of a girl and then some laughter. Then the canon. The laughter then headed her way and Amy immediately froze. She noticed it was the career tributes. They were searching for easy  targets. As the laughter died down one of them said
“Are you sure she went this way?” Amy assumed that she meant her.
“Yeah, I'm sure” Amy almost fell out of the tree, that voice belonged to Ari!
“You better be!” said one of the careers, he sounded like the boy from district two.
The group then walked on and left Amy in peace. After a couple of minutes of being in shock Amy calmed down, she was about to fall asleep when the loud sound of the Eggtropolis anthem blared out to across the arena. Amy looked up, in the sky was the faces of each fallen tribute, going in numerical order. None from district one or two died, both from three and from four, which was surprising, usually the careers last the first day, the boy from five, both from six, seven and eight, the girl from ten, well actually the black hedgehog. Then that was it, the sky fell black again. That was thirteen, thirteen dead, eleven left.

Finally Amy was able to sleep, she had survived the first day of the Hunger Games.
Here it is Chapter seven! The first day of the Games! :D

I don't have much to saw for this one apart from AWWW with Sonic!!!! Tard Boogie - now a plz

I actually liked the way that you placed the countdown; it made more of a suspenseful feeling to the chapter.




:bulletyellow:  Plot
A few more booms are heard, twelve, that's twelve dead so far.  Only thirteen of them left.

:bulletblack:  Since there are only 24 tributes overall, there should only be twelve left instead of thirteen.



:bulletgreen:  More Description



:bulletred:  Grammar
That's how long they had to wait on those paddle stones until to gong went off.

:bulletblack: "to" should be "the"


...that would she survive the blood bath of the cornucopia.

:bulletblack: "would" and "she" should be switched.


She has to.

:bulletblack: "has" should be "had"


In the Eggtropolis...

:bulletblack: "the" should be removed.


Amy ran deep into the woods, she ran for a good hour, none stop...

:bulletblack: "nonstop"


...she fell back on the tree trunk and took a minute to catch her breath.

:bulletblack: "the" should be "a"


Amy then opened her back and examined the contents...

:bulletblack: "backpack"


It was the canon to signify the death of a tribute.

:bulletblack: "cannon;" this occurs more than once.


...only to find that a it was the rustling of a fire.

:bulletblack: "a" should be removed.


She knew all to well that, that was a great way to get killed.

:bulletblack: "to" should be "too"
:bulletblack: The comma should be removed.
