The gift

Gav had saved hard, made sacrifices, to buy a special gift for his daughter. She lived with his estranged wife. But this vital present, from Amazon, failed to arrive.

On the far side of the city a thoughtless courier delivered a parcel in error.
Gav heard a knock, opened his door.
“Are you Gavin Stevens?”
“Who’s asking?” Suspicious, aggressive.
“Your parcel’s been delivered to me by mistake,” said Sandy..
“Where’ve you come from?”
“Yeadon.”
“You’ve come all that way?”Astonished
“Yes.”
“Just for me?” Catch in voice.
“Yes.”
“Nobody’s ever done anything like that for me.”
“Well, I have. Merry Christmas!”
