Someone who sends special packages.
"Special Delivery" by Puzzle

Today was day 20 of the lockdown, and here I was taping up a box I was about to ship. I love sending surprise boxes to people, women actually. These boxes I send, are life changing for some of them. The items I ship, are things they never would dream of receiving. Some of them are so moved by the package, they begin to cry.

You might be wondering why I do these selfless acts of kindness?  I will tell you. Some women need a spiritual awakening. They live their lives with blinders on, completely oblivious to what is occurring around them daily. Or, maybe some know, but choose not to acknowledge it. I have made it my job to make sure they are aware of what they are missing in their lives. That is why I send these packages. To help them.

This package is extra special. I have included an IPhone, some barely used lingerie from Victoria Secrets, a gold necklace with a diamond heart pendant and some flowers I had dried out and saved.

All gifts I have received that I won't be needing anymore, because the man that gave them to me is returning to his wife.  Like the others in my past, he no longer requires the daily ego boost I had once provided him.

Apparently, I am a magnet for married men. So, I have chosen to inform the women of the men who have pursued me. It's a shame she will receive this during lockdown. 

Writing Prompt

Author Notes
This is a fictional story. I am not the woman in the story! I just do not want anyone to think it is a true story!
