‘The Served Term’ By Leyla Seyidova

As the protagonist reflects on her life outside the bars, she realized what a privilege it was to live one and yet how unfair it is to be in his current situation. The story reveals an observation, critique, and questioning of our current society and the fear of what it may become in the future.
