Welcome Weekend Writing Warriors! These are the next 9 sentences in my short story about Daniel, whose Day did not turn out as expected. Waking up, locked in a tiny cage, he discovers that his presence a problem to more than himself. (Creative punctuation alert: I had to edit the text and fudge the punctuation to get this batch through-all these short sentences!)

“We have another collection scheduled in twenty minutes.” More rustles of pages being flipped through. “Our only choice is to insert this one as we extract the next one. We can make up the missing specimen at the following extraction, see? It’s a multiple, so who is to notice if we take five and not four? And that gets rid of this one.”
Daniel could only admire the neatness of the plan-from their perspective of course. From his, it just plain sucked. Back to square one: the same joyless, pointless existence.
