The story will continue shortly.
Rift has decided to go hunting and he needs someone to watch his back as he hunts, Lila decides to go with him to learn in hopes that hunting will teach her something about survival.
Scarlet finds this as a good time to help Summer recover from her terrible loss.
"You sure you'll be find with her?" Rift says thrusting his spear into a tree.
"Ill be fine, I just hope I can help her, I hate seeing people like this, it reminds me of home" Scarlet says eating a hand full of berries.
"Expect Lila and I to be back before dusk" Rift says throwing on his backpack.
"Is life in district 3 like that? people living in depression with absent mind" Lila says shakeing her jacket before putting it on.
"Its not a good district to live in, but its home, the only people who get through every day are the ones who have learned that what they have is what they got and nothing more" Scarlet says tightening her grip.
"My district is like that too, never enough to eat, never anyone smiling, always a grim and dark mood every day, the only thing I loved in this world was my family, now with my brother gone I dont know what to do" Summer says as a tear falls onto her lap.
Everyone is looking at her with an upset expression on there face.
"I know it must be hard but if you want to live you have to pull it together" Rift says supportingly.
"Hes right you cant give in now, you have a life to return to at home, for family needs you" Lila says rubbing her back.
"Your family is watching, do you think they want to see you like this? you have to be strong, be brave, and know your brother died because he wanted you to win, fight for your family and win" Rift says wiping a tear from Summers cheek before raising her chin.
"Stay strong you hear, your family needs you" Rift says giving his encouragement and a smile.
"And stay brave, everyone here is dangerous but so are you, everyone here is afraid of something" Lila says readying her slingshot to hunt and giving Summer a nod.
"Summer and I are going to look for more veggies to eat" Scarlet says picking up her spear.
"Right and we meet here at dusk okay, If we dont return we'll find out what happens at the recap" Rift says tapping Lila's shoulder meaning its time to depart.
Lila locks eyes with Summer and the two stay like that for a moment until Summer spots a tear from one of Lila's eyes, Lila turns to wipe the tear and begins walking with Rift to hunt.
Down with a Sickness
Alex Lucic has woken up to feel that his feat are numb, the cold water was a bit more then his body could bare, he observes his feet are extreamly cold and knows that they were left in wet socks all night.
Alex hangs what cloths that are wet over some branches and digs her feat in hot sand to help warm up, she spots fish and decides that once she gets some feeling back in her feat that its time she try's fishing.
After an hour of hot sand Alex's feat are feel a bit better and she begins to pace back and fourth to get more feeling in them, Alex takes the time to peal and crack open a coconut while pacing to get something into her system.

A High Plateau

At the border where the marshes end and the red woods begin stands a Panther with white claws, but from how bulky the panther look its not a normal creature, before them stands a Mutt.
Sparks hands Rose a knife and draws his sword.
"If this thing attacks up then I want you to run" Sparks says as hold's Roses hand and walks in a 40 yard distance around the Mutt.
"Im not leaving you like that, we stay together and we fight as one" Rose says braking Sparks grip.
The two watch as the Mutt stands up and begins walking deeper into the Marshes opposite to them and the two ease up.
"lets move" Rose says pointing out a high plateau in the distance.
"alright sounds good" Sparks says joking.

Lila Woods & Rift Warfield, Only A Chilling Elegy
The sound of birds echo through the arena, the smell of pollen and pine trees fill the air, Rift is stalking a wild bird unknown to him, Lila sits in a branch with her slingshot ready to fire.
The Bird comes into range when Lila fires the slingshot taking off the wild birds leg completely, Rift Goes in for the kill as he throws his knife sticking it all the way into the wild birds chest.
Hitting the ground in silence the wild bird dies.
"That was some knife skill you have there" Lila says pulling the knife out of the bird before handing it to Rift.
"Thanks Im self taught, I use to train against trees and rocks, huh, just in case I would be in the Hunger Games" Rift says cleaning his blade with some moss off a tree.
"I dont know what this bird is but its huge, enough for us to last another night" Lila says begining to pull the feathers out and setting them underneather some rocks.
"I fell like somthing is watching us" Rift says whispering before pulling his knife to his side but ready for attack.
"What? whats wrong?" Lila says packing the bird in her backpack before drawing her slingshot back prepared to fire.
Just then an axe flys past both of them and gets stuck in a tree, before them stands Kiriato Kauso with a large grin on his face weilding a spear in hand and a sword in his harnest.
Kiriato charges with his spear at Lila but is intercepted by Rift, Kiriato and Rift exchange between offence and deffenceive attacks when Lila gets a clear shot at Kiriato, Lila manages to shoot at Kiriato's back but only right as Rift is knocked back by Kiriato's blunt force.
Kiriato turns to Lila as she fires a second rock at Kiriato but he just manages to dadge it, Lila is ready to fire a third rock when Kiriato throws his spear into Lila's leg slightly above the knee.
"Lila!" Rift says before standing on his feet, Kiriato is pacing toward Lila to pull the spear but just as he reaches her Rift jumps on his back and begins to choke him, Kiriato is throwing elbows and backward headbutts to get Rift off his back.
Rift gets Kiriato on his knees putting Rift in the advantage but right when he thinks he won Kiriato loosens Rifts grip and makes it back to his feet, Kiriato runs backward into a tree slamming rift in raw power, slam after slam Rift finally lets go from the amount of beating he is taking.
As Kiriato catches his breath as he pulls his sword from his harnest, Kiriato is slowly stumbling toward Rift who is sitting against a tree, Kiriato reaches Rift and is about to swing when a rock hits him in the back of the head, Kiriato slips to the ground revealing Lila proped up against a tree.
"Lila how are you?" Rift says with moans of pain.
"He got me good, but I should live" Lila says limping over to Rift.
"We need to get back now, can you, help me up? my backs messed up" Rift says holding out his hand, Lila manages to pull Rift up with the help of a tree, Just then a cannon fires.
"Lets head back, we need to heal our wounds" Lila says as Rift patches up her leg with a piece of cloth he rips of his shirt.
"Okay ill be fine as long as im not laying down" Rift says putting Lila's arm around his shoulder as they begin walking back to camp.

"But its not a bad feeling right" Christine says holding up her Falx to the sound of a bark in the distance.
"Yes its a very bad feeling lets turn back now" Carson says turning to see Christine nodding in agreement.

"I wonder who's cannon that was a while ago" Scarlet says looking at what she has in her backpack.
"Scarlet" Summer says with a hollow voice.
"Yes" Scarlet says as if not to scare her.
"Do you think it could have been Rift or Lila?" Summer says glancing over to Scarlet.
"Theres no telling, If so then one of them are dead, but where just going to have to wait and see" Scarlet says sitting back.
"I hope they are alright" Summer says sitting back like Scarlet.
