#8sunday November 29 , 2015 The Unwanted Package 2
Daniel groaned as he came around. Surely being dead shouldn’t hurt this much. His eyes shot open as soon as he realised that, contrary to his expectations and careful planning, he wasn’t dead.
He had been convinced he had executed the deed perfectly, and that no margin had been left for error. He snorted. His mother was right, he was such a loser! Who else could get jumping off an abandoned water tower – in the middle of nowhere – this wrong?
“Er… Sorry, please don’t try to..”
Daniel thumped his abused head on the metal bars of the tiny cage.
