OOC: I hope no-one minds me starting this thread, just hoping to get Junior involved in the sim and some other characters so feel free to jump in.
IC: Junior had been put in the cell farthest from the door and in what had seemed like hours had passed he had twice thought he had seen some one in his cell. After looking around he had dismissed it as a trick of the light.
