The good news is, you have one day to live.

Seventeen years ago, I murdered three women. I've been in this prison cell ever since.

Over time, the rage that had fueled their deaths faded, and left only the regret. I've become a model prisoner, and everyone knows it. Still, appeal after appeal has been turned down due to the brutality of the original crimes.

But now, the good news.

Tonight, I cannot sleep from excitement. I've been watching the clock desperately, loving every minute that passes.

Now it is 12:01 in the morning, and it is official. I will be executed in 24 hours.

I will finally be free.

So, what shall we do? A walk? You’ve always liked being outdoors. Maybe the beach, however slow you may be now, although it’s a tad chilly in early spring. Spring. We hoped when you made it through winter that maybe...

How can we find enough ways to tell you what you mean to us?

Al we have is now. The open air, a good meal, your heavy weight on our feet as we sleep. And then tomorrow, here at home, that quiet final needle as we pat you and wonder about how quiet and empty the house will be.

I’ve been in this hospital ward for nearly a month now. Unable to move or speak, I’m kept alive by a tangled web of tubes and wires attached to this useless shell of mine. And yet my mind is as clear as it was before the crash, registering every sound and image in the room. Left with few stimuli beyond the pain and the television, I absorb every sensation around me with high definition clarity. The television is showing a week-long Entertainment Tonight marathon. I can stand the pain but I fear another twenty-four hours of Britney may kill me.
