The Long Exile
In this story someone was convicted of murder and sent to prison, only to have been in there for years of your life being wasted when you soon find out who the real murderer is.
The main character of this story is Ivan Dmitrich Aksionov. The theme of this would've been if you can forgive others, you can find peace within yourself. A good quote in this story was “It was I who killed the merchant and hid the knife among your things. I meant to kill you too, but I heard a noise outside, so I hid the knife in your bag and escaped out of the window.” This kind of shows a connection with the theme and how it came along.
