Robert Colquitt Page 1, English Ms Radford 03/10/06 Three days and I was out. I only had to wait three days! I would be gone. Away from this dull, gloomy cave. I had been in this cell for so long the walls must have been talking because I could hear them. For the last twenty two years I had kept my head down, kept myself to myself and was as quiet as a mouse. Until the third day, the day I was going to be released, set free. | A new girl arrived. Her name was Marie. She was a tall, scruffy "I'm hard, so don't mess with me" kind of person. Anyways, she was smuggling drugs into our compound. Ounces! She tried to sell some off on me! How cheeky!

Once he had caught me up, he firmly gripped my arm, "wait!" he shouted, trying to gain his breath. The blood felt like it had stopped running to my arm. My arm went numb! At that point I stated to panic. I couldn't breathe! "LET GO" I screamed, but Jack just stared into my eyes, motionless. I was really scared! I started to sweat, like I had just run a marathon. I picked up the first thing to hand, a heavy metal object, orange I think... I swung my arm back...and released, following right through. He just lay there, still. He looked like he was sleeping. But I knew, and you know...that he was clean out! Was he dead? I didn't know. And I still don't! Because after that night I don't remember a thing.
