"I knew that if I thought about it any longer, I would run out of time. I had to decide. But I couldn't move. No matter what choice I played in my head, it always ended with me being captured and punished as Hajji Salman had punished me. I assumed that Hajji Amer had left me alone in the house with the door unlocked and no guards not because he had forgotten. He wasn't stupid. He did that because he thought at this point, having been abused for so long and being so weak from sickness and hunger, I wouldn't think of trying to escape. They thought they had me forever. They are wrong, I thought. And in the blink of an eye, I tossed my bag over the wall and then jumped over it myself, landing with a thud on the other side." Part 2 - Chapter 12 - pgs 201-202
