IV: Escape Plans and Worried Friends

The next day, both Adz and Dave managed to get stationed beside each other during the brief lunch break given to all prisoners. For fifteen minutes, they sat at the table talking in a whispered hush and making rapid glances around to make sure all guards were out of earshot and none the bit suspicious.
