About one hour had passed so far. The time though seemed longer. In a cage, time goes slowly. He became used to this. But just sitting there in the kitchen, Deo began to feel time itself had stopped. Although he was in his house, he felt as though he was invisible to the home. The white and gray striped shirt and khaki three quarter pants was all he came home with. This suit was one of the best he had acquired, keeping clean and worn only on special occasions. Out here, it is just cloths. Cloths if sold could purchase maybe a cigarette or a drink of rum and nothing else. On the islet, men could lose their life for accidentally staining possessions like these.
