They had to face their backs and couldn't turn around, they had a fire behind them in this cave.
They were prisoners chained up. The lack of light would hurt them and they would be unchained and forced to look at the light, they were in pain because of it.
He was dragged out of the cave by someone who already had their chains taken off. He was dragged into the sun which hurt him because of the lack of light. He woudlnt be able to see anything for a while until his eyes got used to the light.
After a while he was finally able to start seeing things besides shadows after getting used to the light. He found it easier to see in the night though.
"I feel bad for the rest of the guys chained up in there, I wonder if this was luck and one of them is going to come out too" He told himself.
If we ever get free and are able to leave, I will kill whoever did this to me.
