The eye of the tiger
Burning sun beats down upon you as you run, the spear in your hand turning making your palms sweat. Your eyes gaze up at the sun, wishing they'd provided all of you with a hat of some kind, anything to keep the sun off your head and to keep you from dehydrating. Already, you can feel a dry spot forming on your tongue and your throat is burning with thirst. If the game makers wanted to kill you off, this would be the perfect way to do it.
Wiping the sweat from your brow, you pause, looking around at your surroundings. You hadn't meant to abandon your allies at the cornucopia but when the chaos had ensued, you'd taken off as if your life had depended on it. (In reality, it probably had as people were attacking you left, right, and center.) You could feel the wounds on your body aching as blood trickled onto the dusty ground below you. Where were you? Gazing around, you noticed that all around you there was nothing but sand and dry earth for miles. Had you run the wrong way? You'd meant to go to the Cacti you'd been able to see from the pedestal but you must have taken a wrong turn during the bloodbath and ended up here. Oh well, you could survive for now.
A few moments of simply standing in the sun is all it takes for you to decide that you need to cover your head. Unbuttoning your vest and shirt, you wrap the shirt around your head, making a head scarf out of the material and slip the vest back on in order to cover your back from the relentless heat. Are the game makers trying to sweat us out? the thought almost brought a smile to your face but you stopped it, now was not the time for smiles, now was the time to find shelter from the heat before you died of heat exhaustion.
Your eyes scan for shelter but to no avail, the land is flat apart from the occasional tumbleweed rolling by and a few random boulders scattered around the area. No where to hide but then, you remember that you know how to hide yourself. At the moment, you are probably quite easy to pick off but a few moments later, you are hidden among the dusty earth, your body completely covered in dirt and sand. To be honest with yourself, you probably look like a madman but these are the games and you will do what you have to to survive.
