A Priceless Puzzle Piece

Written by Jennifer Azubuike

“I did what I did to my boss because he was too cruel. He is lucky he survived. I regret nothing.” Willis said to his seatmate while looking aimlessly into the empty space ahead of him.

Someone served him a drink. He collected the cup from the young lad and sipped from it mindlessly before putting it down on the table. He watched the lad walk away then turned again to his mate, Yati.

“Isn’t he a little too young? What did he do to be put here?” He said as he nodded toward the lad.

“Who? Joe?”

“Yeah. Whatever his name is.”

“I don’t know his story. The boy hardly speaks about himself.”

“I can make him talk.” Willi’s face lit up in a mischievous smile as he took another sip from his cup.

“I suggest you let him be. The young chap is just happy serving everyone.”

“I am just curious.” Willis shrugged. 

Yati Humped and gave his pal a warning look before leaving his company. Willis continued to watch Joe as he walked from one table to another refilling cups of the other prisoners or removing used food trays. He wanted to let go of the thought, but curiosity got the better of him.
