Prompt for August 17, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

His cell was so small that the door had to open into the hallway as it couldn’t open all the way if it went into the cell. Two feet deep by four feet wide and only five feet tall. He couldn’t lie down or stand up properly and the only way to relieve himself was to manually slide open the cover of a six inch by the six-inch hole in one corner. The light was what crept into the room through the steel mesh window on the door. The walls, made with steel that at one point had been shiny and bright, were rusted, cold and damp. When he heard the key entering the lock to his cell he let out a little whine, desperate for contact, any contact. But when he saw what was on the over side of the door he backed away, knowing that he couldn’t, wouldn’t survive the next few hours.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
