Ah Jin opened her eyes and found herself sitting in a helicopter, with people also seated on either side of herself.
The client this time was named Qiao Jin, an adventurous college student.
She happened to read on the Internet that an American company was calling for adventure teams to go to an unnamed island for a wilderness survival competition.
The winning team would get a million dollars each, and Qiao Jin rushed to sign up.
After she went to the company, she found out that things were not that simple.
She thought it was just a simple survival contest.
Still, the American company required the participants to sign a "life and death contract.”
The company would not be responsible for any threats or conditions that may arise during the competition.
If you died on the island, the company had nothing to do with it.
This rule discouraged many people, but Qiao Jin thought it was just a gimmick.
This contract was like the life and death waiver that you sign every time you go bungee jumping.
She didn't take the contract to heart and readily signed on.
So she was ready to venture out to the island.
However, the reality was brutal.
When Qiao Jin and her squad arrived on the isolated island, she began to panic.
This was no isolated island but a snake island.
The island was full of all kinds of snakes.
As the island of snakes was located in the tropics, most of the snakes on the island were poisonous. There were even human-eating pythons.
Qiao Jin retreated, but there was no turning back.
She had come here, and the time for the survival competition was 14 days.
Only on the fifteenth day, the helicopter would pick them up at the top of the mountain.
If she wanted to be picked up early, she had to choose to admit defeat first.
The rule of the game was that if one person gave up, the whole team would lose.
The two members of Qiao Jin's team did not agree that she should give up the game.
The team members thought, "You just got on the island, and you're talking to me about admitting defeat. You’re probably kidding me!”
Qiao Jin had no choice but to pin her hopes on the two team members because she was terrified of snakes.
It was a simple task to collect the red flags scattered around the island and gather at the top of the designated hill on the fifteenth day.
The team that collected the most red flags won the competition.
