Under the Ice

"I never looked for a way to escape. There was nothing to escape for.
Nowhere to escape to...
until I saw... until I saw what we were made for.
I never understood why they would put us underground so far under the ice. Why it was worth spending so much money on heating and air supply.
Now I know.
I used to feel safe under the ice but I am trapped.
The ice takes away your freedom.
It takes away every hope of liberty.
They saved us from starvation.
They saved us from misery.
They saved us from death!
In 26 days I will be sold. I will leave the caves forever.
I will never return!
Now that I know what really awaits, I would rather be dead!"
- Ava Magdalena Feller Read Chapter
