Sample text:

When Emelisa got back to her cell, she removed the new maxi with which she had appeared at the court. She was very tired. She had to sit first and rest her back on the wall for a few minutes before standing again to put on the old dress she had left on the floor in the morning. She hadn't thought of the stress of court trial to equal what she had experienced. She had thought that trial would simply be a walk-through. 

A guard came to inform her that some people had brought food for her. She didn't ask who the people were. For she thought that they should be from the Save Black Woman group. 

When the food finally arrived, she ate with good appetite. After eating, she changed to her old maxi. Then, she switched off the light and plunged herself into darkness in the cell.
