Digging the hole,
running to avoid being caught,
and sneaking back inside the house
without making a sound.
He had a chance to be like the characters he loved.
He'd been given a mission
and he carried it out.
Just thinking about it gives him a massive rush.
The thrill of success gave him a buzz.
He didn't know a person could feel so alive
He wants the excitement of being a real-life Mercenary of War
He wants to be interesting and different.
He doesn't just want it.
He needs it.
