An average arrival, on an average boat. Stepping onto an unstable dock, walking over to an unstable TV host named Chris. The summer was starting off on a rather horrible note. Not to say I knew anything about singing, but I know what a sour note sounds like. Well, in this case, what it feels like. I'm not much of an optimist, and this camp wasn't going to change that.
Luckily for me, I wasn't the first to arrive. Waiting alongside Chris were three others, named: Gwen, Owen, and Cody. Gwen seemed like the loner type, dressed in all black, with black hair (plus a strip of blue); yeah she seemed a little intimidating, but in a cool way. Owen was the complete opposite, big, happy, and loud. I lost count over how many times he'd said the word "dude". Finally, Cody, who was checking out Gwen. He was a smaller kid, but had the confidence of a business man. I walked over to Gwen.
"So, uh, why are you here?" I stupidly asked.
"Forced by my family, what about you?" She replied.
I yawned, exhausted from the ride to the island. "All I know is that I can't wait to go to sleep," I turned over to our buddy Chris. "Speaking of which, when will we be sleeping?"
Chris chuckled a little bit. "After today's challenge. Let's just wait for everyone to arrive first though."
After what seemed like an eternity, the rest of the campers arrived and we began deciding teams. I conversated with Gwen some more, as well as some other competitors that arrived. One interesting person in particular was Noah. I couldn't quite place my finger on it, but I definitely knew him from somewhere.
"Okay dude, where do I know you from." I smiled, expecting him to recognize me too. He was reading a book at the moment I asked him, so he barely paid attention, plus he seemed confused by my question. I silently sprinted away from him, trying to remember where I had seen him before.
Chris gathered everyone together and began to decide the full teams:
Killer Bass: Gwen, Cody, Trent, Stephen, Duncan, Izzy, Courtney, Noah, LeShawna, Tyler, Lindsay
Screaming Gophers: Eva, Ezekiel, Harold, Katie, Sadie, Geoff, Bridgette, Heather, Beth, DJ, and Owen
