[Short Story] - Surprise coming to you - 5 minute freewrite challenge
"Surprise coming to you"
I have recently overheard some people talking about the deep web and the Tor browser and all the creepy but interesting things I have never heard of before then.
I immediately googled what I had overheard and came across multiple forum threads warning others it was dangerous to access to the deep web. You had access to just about everything, but it was also dangerous.
But 15 year old me in my puberty induced testosterone craze went straight ahead and downloaded the Tor browser to try and find some interesting websites. I fired it up and my innocent eyes have been forever tainted by what they had seen.
I started with NSFW content, of course, but quickly found my way to some gore material and ultimately to websites where you could freely purchase drugs.
My eyes widened when I had seen pounds upon pounds of illegal drugs, freely available for purchase and to be sent by regular mail. I didn't intend to buy any, my mom would've found out about it, but I was nevertheless fascinated by it.
Suddenly, the computer screen turned black.
Moments later, as in The Matrix, a message appeared in green text.
Enjoy the package sent to Wyatt Dawson, 39b Elm Street.
I screamed at the top of my lungs, rushed to unplug the computer and curled into a ball on the floor and proceeded to cry.
Ding. Time is up.
Now I am waiting for my surprise to arrive.
And have no idea what it is.
in the comments below leave me a clue,
an idea for a story you'd love to read,
a journey to the unknown my keyboard will lead.
