Sample text

He let me crash in the back room for two weeks, while I figured out how I was going to cross over. I remember it rained nearly every day, but every day, I went out and studied the situation at the border. I wanted to save my hundred dollars, so I tried to cross by myself—tried three times and failed. After about two weeks, I was getting ready to try once more. It was about eleven o’clock at night: rainy, cold, and windy. ” I told him I did. He said, “Okay. ” A chill ran through me. How amazing was it that he wanted the exact amount of money that I had with me?
