The judge in the middle concludes,
"In punishment thereof this court sentences you to death."
They return you to your cell.
That night, a priest comes to your cell. He offers to hear your last confession.
You accept eagerly. You tell him that you are innocent and that you only confessed to these crimes so that the pain of torture would stop. The priest curses you for a liar and blasphemer. He demands you confess.
When you refuse, he leaves you alone in your cell. The mice crawl in the straw.
