Five months and ten days. The rusty steel bars are no
longer as constricting as they once were, and I've learned to ignore the
staring red-rimmed eyes of the strange man who comes in to give me food and
drink. Sometimes I almost start to relax against the bars and think... maybe this is not so terrible after all.
Perhaps I should be grateful I am not exposed to the brutalities of the wider
world. Isn’t that what people call the Stockholm Syndrome? When I think of
that, panic clamps around my throat and my heart starts hammering in my chest.
No amount of security could be worth the sweet freedom of fresh air and blue
skies. I need to get out of here. I may get obliterated by all sorts of
nameless cruelties, but it has to be worth a try... or is it? [Loo Ching Ling 吕晶琳]
