“You know, I think this is gonna work,” Ramirez said.
“You really think so?”
“Uh!” Ramirez said, tucking his knees up against his chest and squeezing into the suitcase.
“You want me to zip it up?” his girlfriend said.
Ramirez nodded and pressed his head inside and felt the suitcase tighten around him. Then he felt the bumps and cracks of the prison yard until they came to a stop by the prison gate. He could hear the guards talking about the suitcase and his girlfriend falter. He was beginning to think, that maybe, this wasn’t such a bright idea.
