Your final four contestants:

Joshua Longman

There. You’re now sitting boy/girl/boy/girl. Here’s your topic, pulled from the finals of the first competition I ran here.

Your entire story must take place in one room. Other places can be mentioned, but the camera, as it were, never leaves the one room. There are four to six characters that are stuck in this room, and they know they are stuck. They don’t have to know in the first paragraph, but at some point they realize they are stuck. 

Word Limit: 2,000

Due Date: June 1st, 8:00 pm
