Daniel’s Escape


by M. J. Joachim

Daniel stopped short, looked up at the clear, dark, isolated sky and screamed, “You’ll never take me alive!” For years, he’d been tormented by the dreams and visions of his youth. Escaping was the easy part. Now he had to remain vigilant, or he’d be held captive once again.

Blood raced through his veins. Stars, hidden from view, made it impossible for Daniel to navigate his journey and reach the final destination. He was scared, but the adrenalin kept him moving forward. Drenched in sweat, he fell to the ground – exhausted and completely out of breath. 

Arms flailing, he fought trying to get away.

“It’s okay, Daniel. We’re not here to hurt you. Just relax and let us do our jobs.”

Once his arms had been secured, the orderlies fastened the straps to the sides of the bed. “We’ve already taken you alive, Daniel. Sanity is not an option here,” they said as they injected him with LSD.
