John asked for the kitchen duty again. This time, they agreed.
Earlier, he was assigned to cleaning the prison toilets. After months of requesting, the jailer finally let him do the kitchen duty. He assumed that John was really interested in cooking. John was expected to start with grinding tonnes of flour and then work his way up to cooking. He started early everyday in a dusty room and finished his work on time. The prison authorities were impressed.
Little did they know that he also was sharpening a piece of wood to attack the prison guard and escape soon.
