Blue Water Blue

Maybe, I thought, they manacle each new inmate at the start of their sentence to instil some fear into them to make them more compliant and easier to discipline. If so, it was certainly working on me. The minutes dragged but after what must have been an hour I heard movement in the corridor outside and the door half opened. Someone on the other side of the door spoke to the warder inside the room ordering him to wait outside and under no circumstances interrupt the interview that was about to take place inside. For long moments I sat alone listening to my own breathing and heartbeat then the door swung fully open and George Ferrari walked into the small dungeon like room in his right hand he held a two-pound lump hammer.
