The doors at the end of the prison hallway opened abruptly.
‘‘Let me GO, you’re hurting me!’’ whelped a female Keelish while she was being pushed and shoved forward by her accompanying guards.
’‘Keep quiet, and move!’’ one of them barked right before he shoved her in to a cell opposite Felix’s. She fell, and after they locked her doors, she got up and leaned on the bars.
’‘This isn’t right…’’ she pleaded.
’‘I don’t want to hear it. Kesh’s evidence that it was you is overwhelming. You have committed a crime that can only be described as treason. We will find out why you did it, later…’’
’‘Blame me for having a soul and saving the Valkoran! Besides! Nothing bad came of it in the end, and i’ve learned much of…’’
A guard leaned forward towards her and interrupted.
’‘You can tell that to the judge.’’
’‘Oh, i already did. Which is why i’m getting a chance to redeem myself, and atone for my… ‘‘mistake’’.’’
‘‘Hah!’’ the guard laughed, ‘‘The only reason you still draw breath is because you are still of use to Kesh, and nothing else.’’
The guards left the prison block giggling while the woman sat herself on one of the benches. Cross legged, she used her right arm to support her head as she closed her eyes and sighed deeply.
