}

draw(A[10]--(A[10] + A[2] - A[3])--(A[10] + A[2] - A[3] + A[4] - A[5])--(A[10] + A[2] - A[3] + A[4] - A[5] + A[2] - A[1])--(A[10] + A[2] - A[3] + A[4] - A[5] + A[2] - A[1] + A[4] - A[3]));
draw((A[10] + A[2] - A[3])--(A[10] + A[2] - A[3] + A[10] - A[1])--(A[10] + A[2] - A[3] + A[10] - A[1] + A[8] - A[9])--(A[10] + A[2] - A[3] + A[10] - A[1] + A[8] - A[9] + A[6] - A[7]));
