"A Christmas Criminal" - Part 32

Mitchell HG32 - Packaged Up
Tom has learned by now that defying or resisting
these Security Guards can have painful consequences. 
He confines himself to verbal protests 
(You can't do this! Please don't! I'll make you pay! etc etc)
as they fold him into the confines of the box 

They cram his last toe in and fit the lid on top,
plunging him into near darkness relieved only by
the light coming in through 3 small round holes
which are obviously there for ventilation.
 
There are lots of scuffing noises on the outside of the box,
presumably the Security men are making it secure, trying to
but Tom's confident he can break out once they've gone.
For the sake of form, he continues to shout to be let out.

He feels  the box being lifted and then put down again
There are more scuffles and the rustling of paper.
Then the three light holes are covered, leaving a dim blueness.
Tom recognises the sound of sticky tape being applied.

He realises he's being gift wrapped!
