Camp NaNo April – Day 28 recap

Camp-2017-Participant-Profile-PhotoYikes. Only two more days to go. I know I’m going to make it, but it still seems unbelievable to me. There have been months I’ve written more total words, but not while having written every single day.

And I’m so excited about all of the stories I’ve started (some even finished). The next few months are going to be busy finishing, revising, and posting stories. I can’t wait.


Day 28: sympathy

The last twenty-four hours have been hell for the entire camp. Bellamy feels like his insides were put through a blender–at least the parts he didn’t puke up while he was dying of the plague.

Somehow they got through it like they always do. They even stopped a grounder army from attacking in the process. He guesses it’s a win, but it doesn’t feel that way when they’re digging more graves.

Bellamy feels like death warmed over, but he’s not the only one that’s been put through the wringer. When he hears the faint crying, he thinks about ignoring it. It’s not unusual to hear the other kids waking with nightmares or crying for their mothers. But something changes his mind.

He finds Clarke in the darkness. He doesn’t like to see girls cry. And he doesn’t like thinking of Clarke as weak. She’s the rock he’s started to lean on to get through each crisis. He’s not sure when that happened, but he can at least admit it to himself. But this time, Clarke is the one that needs support.

He doesn’t know what to say to her, so the best he can offer is a shoulder to cry on.

The End.

Not the longest recap. I had trouble setting this story, so it might change drastically in the future.


Curious, he follows the noise into the darkness. The girl sniffles but suddenly quiets when she realizes she’s not alone. He squints at the figure sitting against the dropship. “Clarke?”

She doesn’t answer, just pulls her legs in closer, hugging them tightly. Bellamy squats down in front of her. “Hey,” he says, lightly touching her arm. “You okay?”

She wipes at her eyes and nods. “Fine.” She opes her mouth like she plans to say more but nothing comes out. She turns away, probably so he won’t see her cry.

He’s not sure what to do. Things have been weird between them since they went to the bunker. He can’t stop thinking about her, and it nearly gave him a heart attack when he saw her sick. When he looks at those fourteen graves, all he can think is thank god she’s not in one of them. He wonders if she ever has those thoughts about him.
