Loo began reading aloud from the People's Daily. In the middle, though, he was interrupted by the latch clunking back. When the door drew open, the tall cop was there, the one who had arrested me. ' he called. I jumped down, slipped on my shoes and dashed outside. I hadn't expected to be called so soon. It made me nervous. The big cop took me only as far as the warder's desk, where he handed me over to a Sepo in a yellow-green padded uniform. 45 from his hip holster and with a flourish pulled back the slide to snap a round into the chamber.

Set in the whitewashed brick walls were two small, barred windows with panes thickly frosted over; on the ledges underneath were two neat stacks of books, pamphlets and newspapers. A pair of tar-lined iron buckets sat in the far corner, one on top of the other. The men sleeping in front of me appeared dishevelled but clean. Each one lay on a palletlike mattress with a thin cotton quilt over him; a few had even placed coquettish little pieces of cloth under their heads to keep the pillow clean. The prisoner who had been awakened for me put a finger to his lips and motioned me to lie down.

I huddled miserably under the quilt as the north wind swept past outside the window and the cell grew chillier. The only heat was from a warm stovepipe, which poked into the cell over the door, crossed the room above our heads and then ran out the , back wall through a hole by the window. Sleepless as I was, I sat I \ up and crept across to the tar buckets to take a leak. Just as I started thundering nicely a chorus of angry shushings arose behind me. So apparently pissing at night was against the rules.
