. . . Keira
I was walking towards the metal walls. The ground was surprisingly soft ad fine, so I watched each step to make sure I wouldn't fall into quicksand.
There wasn't any plants, except for a few dead bushes and trees, which were just pieces of dry wood now.
Every once in a while I would see a rabbit or a coyote pass by.
The day was pretty uneventful. I was walking the whole day and got about four miles closer.
It was close to dusk, so I decided to settle for the night. I found a little hill and dug into the side using my small shovel.
I dug the hole into a cave like area, big enough to fit my body in and still have plenty of space.
I also grabbed some wood to support the roof of the hole. I placed a few to hold up the soft sand so it wouldn't collapse on me while I was asleep.
I was about to close my eyes until my stomach rumbled. I realized I haven't eaten since before the testing began.
I opened my bag and ate one of the apples I had. I wasn't given much food. This was not going to last long.
I quietly stepped outside and collected some sticks from the bushes. I grabbed my dagger and ripped one of the seams on the bottom hem of my shirt. I pulled the thread out f the seam to get a lengthy piece.
Using the thread and sticks, I quickly made a rabbit trap.
I crawled back into my hole and closed my eyes.
The next morning I woke up bright and early.
I crawled out and checked my trap. Thankfully, there was a rabbit caught. I put the rabbit in my bag and disassembled the trap.
I also took down my cave and let it collapse, just in case.
I started my journey again, walking towards the metal walls. As I walked, I tripped over a rock and fell right into quicksand.
I struggled, my mind panicked. My face was already submerged and I couldn't breathe. I was sinking quickly. The sand was crushing in on me.
