George says: It made me curious as to what the package was. Was it Santa? Was it a bomb? It kept my interest. The only disconnect is ground penetrating radar is limited to a shallow depth, so I struggled to believe they could find something a thousand feet down in Carlsbad Caverns. But the idea was cool.

George says: Fun tale. Well written. It looks like a whole crate of whoop-ass has been opened. It was exciting and entertaining, and it left a feeling of "you're gonna be in so much trouble." Great story.
The cell buzzed and he accepted the call. “Yeah?”
“Is it done?”
“Yup. All taken care of.”
“So where is the package now?”
“That’s not what I asked.”
“You ain’t gettin’ jack until I have the money.”
The sounds on the other end of the phone line were muffled as his contact spoke to someone else. He glanced over his shoulder at the woman lying unconscious in a metal and wood crate shoved into a corner of the warehouse. She was worth a hellava lot of money to the guy jerking the Hell Dogs’ leash, even after he took his cut.
“The payment will be forthcoming.”
“Soon. Stay with the package. Your money will arrive within a day. You’ll be notified where you can pick it up.”
Kit awoke to a death metal band playing a concert in her head. She was also covered in blood and a dead man. Her nose wrinkled at the stench. How long had she been unconscious? Another odor insinuated its presence.
She scrambled from beneath the dead dude, kicked out. The crate remained intact.
“I’m coming!” Derek.
Please don’t let her be dreaming.
