“Your times up. Better run!” The man with the sword yelled at me.
I immediately started to run. I ran until I couldn’t breathe. I ran until I couldn’t anymore. I came to a stop hunching over, trying to regain my breathe. I knew if I was found he would have my head.

“Okay, got it. Remind me, how much do I need to give you?” I said while trying to keep my voice from shaking.

“One-thousand…?” I started to get goosebumps.
“Dude, are you cold right now?” I shook my head.

The blades of grass brush against my leg as i lay on my back in the field. I can hear words whispering through the trees surrounding me. The dome overhead seemingly endlessly surrounding me. I can see the ends in the horizon but no matter how far i run i cannot catch them. In all the days here i havent seen any sign of another living being, just me. Each time I go to sleep a package of food appear...
