3)Write a diary entry for Mary Banks as if you had just returned to your prison cell after
your interview with Sir Matthew. Narrate the events that took place from your
perspective. Include your feelings, impressions and future prospects.

Dear Diary,

I had just returned to my prison jail after my interview with Sir Matthew. I was highly strung and sensitive because he interrogated me with questions that made me feel uncomfortable with the situation. Sir Matthew knew I was responsible for my husband’s murder. So, I pretended to be in the hospital when my husband was dead, because he hited me, so I need to go to the hospital because I pretended to be blind. However, Sir Matthes did not believed my version of the story. I felt in hurry. My heart was beating fast every passing moment.

Nevertheless, while Sir. Matthew was interrogating me, he took his glass eye from the socket. I couldn’t resist the impact when the man extracted his eye from the socket. The reaction of my face was full of fright. Due to this, the lawyers realised that I wasn’t blind and that my case was manslaughter.

Lastly, I think I would be in jail for a couple of year and then I expect to be in total freedom so I can repair the damaged I had caused to my husband and my family.
