It's so undignified. Prison. He doesn't belong here, among the unwashed uneducated masses.

It wasn't even his fault that the fight started. He was an innocent bystander. He hopes Frasier will get him out of here soon.

Niles feels his heartbeat quicken. "I'm Niles."

The other man takes his hand and kisses it. "Cecil."
