The fortunate man

Lily wakes up every morning to the sound of a small fighter jet taking off in his modest 1 bedroom apartment. The neighbours above him are renovating, and despite the workers assuring him that they’d be done within the week, the jackhammer thumps persisted for the remainder of the month. Unable to take it anymore, Lily throws himself out of the nearby window. Unfortunately, a fall from the second story does not guarantee a swift death, and so our ill-fated protagonist survives, paralysed from the waist down. “You’re lucky to be alive”, the doctors tell him.
