I have ten demands. Meet them, and they will be freed.

A getaway car and free unhindered passage to the country of my choice.
Ten million pounds sterling.
Destroy all archive material you hold on me.
Forgive my previous crimes.
Call off your surveillance.
Tell them all to stop watching me. Everyone.
Remove the stains. The stains on my hands, the stains on my sheets, the stains on their sheets and the stains on my memory.
Eradicate these flashbacks to my childhood.
Forgive my future intentions.
Cure the fist within me.
Teach me tolerance.
Make me someone good.
Love me.

    Thanks Francis. That line came to me from somewhere or other, and it was the line that grew into this drabble :)

    Great drabble, Drew. Love how it started off with demands and then ended with a plea.

    I'm with Julie, great progression, esp. as the lines got shorter towards the end.
