I do not fear death. I do not tremor at the thought of my eternity. I do not plea for mercy; for my life to be spared. This is my fate and I almost wish it would come sooner. Sitting against this lifeless cobble wall is where I wait, wonder what is next, because to live you must die.

I hated being in here with nothing to do. It makes the voices in my head louder and all I want to do is ignore them… they are the reason why I’m here, sitting in this god-forsaken cell. It’s cold, damp and a piece of boning from my corset stuck into my lower chest. Two of them, two voices, and they WILL NOT BE QUIET. I’m trying to sleep but all I hear is them rattling on about how I’m going to get out of here. I do not need any more bright ideas from these two; they got me stuck in here to begin with.
