The Box, Part 1
I chose to crawl inside the box. It was warm in there, warmer than the dead cold of the cargo bay. Mummy said we had to wait in the cargo bay until the marines said it was safe to come out. She didn’t say how long we had to wait. Sally and her fam... read more »

I haven't reposted any reviews of my work in some time. I kind of figured that the links on the side would be enough for you readers to be sated with.
