Miss Birkett stared at the thirty teens sitting before her. They were all sixteen, yet they varied, Some looked ready to go physically, and others looked more intelligent, probably taking a statistics approach into The Program.
"Welcome all!" She smiled, trying to brighten the cold atmosphere the best she could "I am Atlanta, but you can call me Miss Birkett!"
A few of the students looked at each other. A few looked scared, and a very small amount looked happy that they were there- sitting in the chairs that the students before them sat, awaiting their time in The Program.
"Now, as you might have figured out" She continued "You are in The Program! We, as we normally do, choose 30 people around the world to compete in The Program! Now, a few rules. One! Don't touch your collars, they will explode when provoked, thus killing you."
This caused people like Kiersten (Girl #4) and Raven (Boy #9) to stop trying to get the collar off.
"You each have an assigned weapon, and you will leave here one by one, in numeric order. Now, there are 64 'Areas' on this island. Every 2 hours, a few of the Area's will get chosen to be Danger Zones. The danger? It's either a person, or a thing. Now, The Program goes on for 3 days. If 29 people are not dead within those 3 days, the remaining Contestants will be killed. Got it?"
Everyone nodded, before looking at the competition they'd have to face for the life that until a few days ago, they took for granted.

Miss Birkett called the name of the first contestant to leave. Rachel (Girl#2)! Rachel stood up, tears flowing from her eyes. Dillion, the boy who fancied her felt like screaming. Rachel took her bag and ran. Rachel checked her bag. A bottle of water, some bread, a torch and some darts. There was also a pot inside. The pot was a pot of poison. Rachel took a dart, dipped it in the pot of poison and waited for her first victim. Bob (Boy#13) walked out. He was quite chubby, so he wasn't so fast. Rachel got her dart, took aim and threw. It hit Bob square on the neck. He pulled it out before dying. Rachel ran off as Amanda (Girl#14) ran out.
All students were out, except one. Oli (Boy#1) was still in the Danger zone. He ignored the beeping of his collar, telling him that he was about to die. He didn't care. He didn't want to watch his friends die. As Oli's beeping became faster, he started to cry. "GOODBYE!" He shouted, just before his neck exploded.
