The Survival Games

10...

How did I get into this mess? Why me? Why me, the person who's name was in there twice? TWICE! Why not someone who's name was in there 50 times? Or 60? I wasn't ready for this. I knew nothing about surviving in the wilderness. All I knew how to do was climb a tree. That would come in handy, if nobody else in the arena could climb a tree, which was highly unlikely.

There were 20 of us and I knew all about them. Their names are Max, Jordan, Steven, Ashley, Renee, Aleks, Eddie, Tiffany, Natalie, James, Nick, Anthony, Jamie, Dan, Rachel, Lyle, Jake, Dexter, Adam, and me, Seamus. I knew for a fact that Jordan uses a bow and arrow, Adam uses a golden sword, Lyle use knives, and James uses a katana.

Maybe I do have something they don't have. I have courage, I'm small and thin, and I'm smart(sort of). Jordan, Max, James, and Anthony are all pretty tall. Ashley, Rachel, and I are probably the smallest. I'm taller than them, though. But I'm skinnier than them.
