This is rotten luck. I can't know what you've gone through in the hour before you read this. Every scenario I imagine is dire — rotten food, rotten cellmates, rotten gray walls, water stains on the ceiling, a treeless caged yard.
Do you have a window? I need to know. For some reason, I am desperate to know if you can see the sky.
I'm feeling awfully guilty, And. I should never have sent those kids your way. They were my responsibility, and I failed. Not only failed but dragged you into it. I'm responsible, and yet you're in jail — not me. So if you only had a window, I'd feel better.
I see as I write how selfish this is.
