Sample text

The door of the cell opened. " I thought, Hell! I'm only at 4,150 paces. I'd been walking for an hour. Then I thought, Why stop? I nodded at the guard, still counting, and determined that I wouldn't lose the count because every step would matter just as every minute of stolen sleep would matter.

If you talked to yourself the guard would throw open the food slot and hiss at you. "Shut up, you! No talking! " Just for talking! Or if it was a good guard and he caught you whispering or muttering absentmindedly because you were half asleep all the time, he might just tap at the peephole and wave his finger or shake his head when you looked up.
