Day 7, Wednesday

The punishment was 10 days from conviction. You were to stay in your cell until the execution. I went to see you and you told me repeatedly, "Stay alive. You have to live. You have to make it without me. You have to make it." I promised you over and over. Not to live, but to do my best. To promise to live would be to risk letting you down. You told me,

"Promise to live."

The End
