Yesterday, on Monday, excited Martha called her family earlier than usual.
With passion, she told them that new cells were shown.
The renovation of a new prison wing is about to end.
Five cells downstairs and five upstairs.
it was decided, that “lifers” are to be transferred there.
Other prisoners are imprisoned longer than Martha.
But Martha was also included in the transfer.
Martha is going to have a cell upstairs.
She had no possibility of choosing, but she still is glad, that her transferring is planned.
Everything is new in the new cell.
Black closet, bed with a drawer beneath, mirror, a mirror in the bathroom, blinds, openable ventilator.
Everything new – Martha figures it’s all from IKEA.
Everything is fixed, so it can not be moved.
In the part common for prisoners, there are: microwave oven, toaster, and a dishwasher.
Martha judged, that Mrs Governor Mary O’Connor arranged everything nice and very well. And she supervised everything very well.
Plenty of people outside the prison, doesn’t have such conditions in their homes.
Entire decoration of cells is a sign of trust in the inmates, who are to be transferred.
Surely every inmate will be pleased.
The only cons are lack of sun, and… freedom…
In the evening, Martha’s family gave Martha other informations…
…from “the world of free people” (who really is “free”?)…
…”from behind the wall”…
From joy… into cry…
