The break time seemed to be over, and the boys in their school uniforms who had come out to play outside the gate earlier began to return inside the metal gate one after another. The last remaining boy also stopped in front of the camera, looked satisfied with having his picture taken, and then disappeared into the gate. When everyone had gone inside, the door closed with a bang.

The iron door at the entrance of the school seemed sturdy. It may have been to prevent intruders, but it was not easy for the people inside to get out with a metal gate like this. The high walls and iron doors reminded me of a prison. I suppose schools and prisons are the same when it comes to housing people and having their own rules.
