“Wait, a safe. Where is the safe? Why do we need a safe?”
“Honey, the safe is in our bank. All you have to do is drive over there and ask to speak to…Ted.”
“Ok…Dad, your scaring me.”
“I know I am, but this is something you need to know. When you meet Ted, ask for him to show you the safe. Take out the package in the safe, and ask Ted to drive you over to the place where its to be dropped off. He knows where he’s going.”
“Alright…What do I do with the package when I get it there?”
“Just…just knock on the door. When someone answers, all you need…need to say is strawberry, and they will let you in and take the package. Once you’ve dropped off the package, everything fine, and you just need to go home.”
“Daddy…you sound worse. Please, where are you? Let me come and get you.”
“No, darling, I’m fine. Now, just know that I love you, more than anything in the world. Oh, and one more thing-”
“Daddy?Daddy? Are you there?”
All she could hear was a loud bang and then the line went silent.
