It was a pretty steady week for Josie. Even though District 11 was one of the more rowdy districts, most of them must have accepted their defeat. There were so many Peacekeepers in Panem now, maybe almost too many, and any flicker of rebellion would instantly be crushed. That was how it worked. Rebels were nothing but that--rebels. Josie didn't mind putting any cocky citizens back in their place. After what the rebels did to her, there was no turning back. She was anything but sympathetic.
She slept well though. Sometimes the nightmares would come, but other times her dreams would be silent. Josie liked when she could sleep uninterrupted. Those were the nights that she slept like nothing ever happened. The people on the night shift usually handled everything without a stir. She was definitely a day person.
All of a sudden, one of the commanders entered in the room screaming. "Wake up! Fire in the fields! All soldiers attend to fire!" Josie bolted awake, throwing on her Peacekeeper uniform as quickly as possible. A fire had broken out? She had no idea how that was possible. Fires were very uncommon, and even though it was summer, things were usually under a lot of control. About twenty Peacekeepers carried a large hose they needed to hook up to the nozzle.
She burst out the door with the other Peacekeepers, running as fast as they could to the fires in an organized fashion. Citizens were awake and she was on the move with the hose. She could see the fire from a mile away as it blazed in the night sky. "Shit, shit, shit," she whispered to herself. She kept running, finally helping people hook up the nozzle to the water tank. She didn't think there was enough water to put out the fire, but she was going to try.
She started lifting the hose, but no water was coming out. She looked back and saw a large twist in the hose. "Somebody get the twist!" She shouted, knowing that if she dropped the hose, lots of water would be wasted.
