When we arrived I had an overwhelming tingling feeling in my stomach, partly of anticipation and partly from hugging Katrina. I just heard there was two more deaths, another suicide and Kypper, who we met on a transport, in a plane crash. We met up with everyone in our group. The sword Andrew made me worked perfectly. Lots of kids weapons were pretty strange. I guess Katrina changed her mind about the gun, she had a wicked bow and a quiver of energy arrows, for her accuracy had risen very high. Dustin also had a hand in a half sword, and the kid Matt had these strange looking blades. It was a startalon, but on both hands it was split into three claws. There were various others, mostly blasters, but there was a kid with a boomerang blade. Charlies battleaxe was pretty awesome, he strapped it onto his back when he wasn't using it. Michaels visor was pretty cool, but Michael would be parachuting to us later, but luckily Andrew had a tracking device.
"Listen up!" Captain screamed,"Your survival mission does not start here, We will take you deep into the jungle! Once there we will give the leaders of your group a objective hologram! You will complete these objectives and then return! But be aware, many have died here, it's up to your training from here on to see if you will live! We are giving you special survival suits that are similar to enomeg suits! We will tell you witch teams are together when you get there! This will take a half a month to a month to complete! Good luck!"
Before we left we all got into our trainee enomeg suits. It felt nice. I strapped my sheath onto it, sheathed my sword, and put my eyepatch on. We all looked pretty intimadating. We walked for three hours until we arrived. We were immediately put into our groups. I was in a group with my room, along with two other rooms. I was in Dustins group who had Kypper and Cooper in his room who were dead along with Brendan who decided to make a truce with me to be friends. There was also two girls named Katelyn and Violet and two boys named Duncan and Ronald. Cooper and Kypper were also in that group, but their both dead.
We were also with Matts room, the kid with the claws. Along with two boys named Harry and John and three girls named Selene, Mikaela, and Isadora. There were 2 other boys, James who committed suicide, and Daniel who was the boy I killed.
"Well," Amanda said while handing us objective hologram,"Good luck and don't die."
After those encouraging words, she headed back with all the other councilers. We introduced ourselves and waited for our pilots. I decided to look at our first objective.
It said: Kill 2 wild boars, collect 5 bananas, 6 apples, and 3 peaches. Pitch your tents and camp. Take a picture of everything and upload it onto this objective hologram. After that you can use them for provisions.
'Woah!' I exclaimed,'2 wild boars! That'll be tough, luckily Charlie, Brandon, Duncan, Ronald, and John are Brutes!'
While I was reading this Michael landed along with Harry and Isadora. They had huge bacpacks on and a briefcase in each hand, one big and one small.
"Hey," I said to Michael,"whats in the bags?"
"Yeah and the briefcases?" asked Dustin.
"Well," said Michael," In our backpacks there are quite a few canteens of water, like 30 energy bars in each backpack, and a tent in mine and Harrys. Oh and a couple small computer items, and in Isadoras there are a few computers. There are also lighters and bedrolls."
Harry said,"In our small briefcases are medical kits containing medicine, splints, bandages etc."
Isadora added,"In our big ones there are cybernetic body parts for nearly every bone and a few organs in the human body and repairing/upgrading equipment in it. For example there are cybenetic hands, legs, and eyes, along with wiring and wrenches."
After all that was cleared up, we gathered more than enough fruit. Now all that was left were the wild boars.
We were discussing who would go.
"I say all the Brutes should go!" John said.
"No," said Katrina,"If one of you were to get hurt or die that would be a major disadvantage to us. Also we need a couple Brutes to help protect camp from any wild animals."
We all agreed. After a few moments of arguing the People were chosen. They were Matt, Dustin, and me for we were the quickest, Charlie because his strength and battleaxe and Duncan because he had great tracking skills, and lastly Katrina with her bow, Isadora because she had the boomerang blade, and Mikaela, because she had the best aim with guns out of everyone.
We searched for nearly two hours before we caught glimpse of the first one. These boars were huge! Nearly seven feet tall and two feet wide! Muscles bulged from their skins and legs. We quickly put our first plan into action.
While it was unaware, Katrina shot one arrows at its legs while Isadora threw her boomerang, and Mikaela shot. The arrow hit its right hind leg. Because the boar was surpised it couldn't move. The boomerang didn't hit but left a pretty deep cut and returned. Also a few of the shots hit it. The boar fell to the ground breathing hardly. I walked up to it to stab it with my sword, but pity welled up inside me. With a scream I stabbed it, and slowly the breathing stopped. Charlie and Duncan, surprisingly, carried it back to our camp. After dropping it off we headed back to track another, though Isadora, Katrina, and Mikaela stayed and Brendan went. This time it took us about 3 hours until Duncan found tracks.
"Judging by the size of the tracks this one is far bigger by the other one." said Duncan.
Worriedly, we followed the tracks until we saw the boar. This one was bigger! It was at least 9 feet tall, 4 feet wide, and even more muscular.
"We should've kept one of our rangers," Matt said,"That way we could just range it."
"We'll just have to work with what we have." Brendan said.
We figured out a plan and decided to go with it.
We started to do it but this boar wasn't so stupid, it saw Matt and charged, Matt jumped to the side just in time. The boar turned and started running again, tusks glinting in the light. Matt didn't see it and stood still.
I grabbed his shirt and pulled him before the boar could spear him and said,"You have to pay attention to your surroundings! Remember your training!"
I started to run towards the boar, pretty soon so did Matt and Dustin. Matt slashed with his claws and gave the boar three deep cuts. The boar roared and rammed Matt into a tree where he got knocked out. Dustin kicked it in the torso, so then the boar turned on him. Ignorantly he got himself cornered in some boulders. The boar was rushing full speed towards him. Dustin was so frightened he didnt even see that he could jump out of the way.
"Dustin!" yelled Brendan.
Brendan then jumped in front of the boar and was skewered by its tusks. The boar shook its head to get Brendans body off it. Brendan fell to the ground with faint rhaspy breathing. Now I was angry, while the bull was getting ready for another charge, I cut its hind legs off. It fell to the ground, then charlie came up and with a big heave of his axe, he killed the beast.
I ran over to Brendan and said,"Hold on, we'll get you out of here."
"No," Brendan said hoarsely,"it's to late. I-*cough cough* I'm sorry I mistreated you, I'd," He inhaled sharply,"I'd like you to think of us as friends ok?"
"Yes Brendan," I said as his breathing stopped,"rest in peace, brother."
Then angrily I went to Dustin and yelled,"You idiot! You could've jumped out of the way and Brendan wouldn't have died! It's your fault! Stupid boy!"
I kicked him and walked away, Dustin looked at me with anger.
This time Charlie, Duncan, Matt, and Dustin carried the boar, while I carried Brendan.
At camp we gave Brendan a proper burial. Sadly, we took the picture of our camp with the fruit and the Boars. Andrew uploaded it onto the hologram, and beside that task there was a check and a star. We butchered the boars and set the pieces in a cooler that we brought. We put the fruit in another part of the cooler. We took the tusks of the boars. One we buried with Brendan. One we kept for Amanda, one for Captain, and another which we all carved our names in to for the one who survives to become an enomeg. After bathing an a nearby river, I layed on my bedroll, I was sharing a tent with Charlie, Andrew, and Michael. After a few tears, I fell asleep, wondering what would happen tommorrow
