They all jumped, so rapt in conversation were they. None of them seemed to want to answer the door.

Eddie reluctantly did, the band’s leader even in small matters like this.

Zeke was first to inspect its contents and he went pale, his mouth filling with vomit when he saw what was inside.


‘What is it?’ Travis said, shoving his pallid friend out of the way to get to the box. ‘Oh, gross, man,’ he said, retching himself.

Eddie got the feeling that he didn’t want to know what was inside, but he looked regardless.
