When I wake up again itís night & thereís hardly any light in the cell.  The only light is from a candle a hundred feet down the hallway.  I can hear the guardís deep steady breathing  & I know heís asleep.  I check the bars & one of them is bent enough that I can fit my head through, so I slowly & quietly pull my entire body through the gap.  I choke the guard until Iím sure heíll be out a few minutes & I put on his rags & go out into the city.  The cityís dark & quiet.  Itís quieter here than outside of the city, there arenít any bird or insect noises.  I canít tell where the gates are from here, so I just sit in an alley waiting a few hours for the sun to come up.
