It’s been a week, and I’m starting to get bored. No tribute encounters since the bloodbath for me means a lot of sitting around and guarding the base from invading tributes, which no one has even attempted to do. The only thing that’s changed for us Careers is that Andrew is dead and Michael’s off dying somewhere from poison. Oh, and Avery the mannequin is here.
I tried talking to her yesterday, while she was on her patrol, and she didn’t even respond to me. Apparently only serving the District 2 tributes means only interacting with them. No doubt that our alliance is the only thing keeping her programming from instructing her to kill Marie and me. And that’s a pretty thin wall of protection.
I thought about killing her. Well, taking her out, anyways. Not sure if robots can be “killed.” But the thought has crossed my mind to take her out while everyone is sleeping. I wonder if she’s thought the same thing. Can she think like that? I would ask her, but I doubt I’d get an answer, let alone an honest one. But can she lie?
I don’t like her. I just don’t like her.
The girl sprints around the corner and I follow, my last knife held tight in my hand. One knife has already been thrown and made it’s mark on the girl from 9’s arm (Training Point Lost), but she’s fast. She must not be poisoned any more. Kind of sad that she got her antidote only to be killed by me.
The girl opens the door to a room and rushes inside. I approach cautiously; if she was healed from her poison, it means that she’s killed someone. And she might have something planned in this room. I touch the door handle cautiously, noticing off-handedly that it locks from the outside.
I open the door with a flourish and leap inside the room, only to squint and flinch at how bright it is. Lights line the ceiling, walls, and even the floor, save for the stone wall farthest from the door. It’s so bright in here.
By the time my eyes readjust, the girl is already slipping back out the door. I run to it as fast as I can, but it’s too late; she locks it behind her. I can only stare through the small glass window as she runs off down the hallway. Great.
I wiggle the doorknob, trying to force the door open. Where is Joey? He was right behind me when I broke off to chase the girl.
A grinding sound behind me makes me spin around with a small shriek. With horror, I see that the stone wall is moving towards me.
I hear Chelsea screaming before I find her. She’s behind a door in the hallway I just turned into.
“Joey! Oh Joey, thank God! The wall is closing in, unlock the door!”
I look down at the doorknob, and then back up at Chelsea.
“How did you get locked in there?”
“The girl from 9! I chased her into here and she got past me and locked me in! Unlock it, hurry!”
“Which way did she run?” I ask.
“Why does that matter? Open the door!”
“Well I’m going to have to kill a tribute when you die.”
Chelsea stares at me for a moment, flushed in the face.
“Joey, open the door!”
I turn and leave as her screams for help turn to curses. The girl from 9 must’ve run to the right, otherwise I would have bumped into her. I have to find her.
I start pounding on the glass with my knife. Maybe I can break the window, maybe reach through it to the lock!
The glass shatters after a few blows. I stick my arm through the opening, gashing it open on shards of glass and I’m trying to reach and oh God my arm hurts but I gotta reach gotta reach and I can’t reach the handle the handle is too far no no no and the grinding is getting closer and oh God oh God no I can’t reach I’m crying and the wall starts pressing against my ankles—
The cannon fires and I stop in my tracks. No sign of the girl from 9. Crap. I look down at my arm as it buzzes and purple shoots out into my veins.
Oh crap. I should not have done that.
