SF Drabble #289 “High Security”

They had to buzz me through ten times before I even got to the section where they keep it… him. I don’t remember being challenged for my credentials that many times when I went to see the President, and that was the paranoid one, you know, old mister “watch your fellow Americans with an eagle eye!” God, I’m glad he’s gone.

The observation area was separated from the cell by three-inch-thick glass and a twenty-foot wide pit that didn’t have a perceptible bottom. The Visitor was asleep, not much of a show. But I’ve been having trouble sleeping ever since.
