“A chicken salad sandwich and a cappuccino please” Josh gave his order and stared at the open book he was holding. “Short, Tall or Grande?” came the standard reply. “Tall” “And would you like a extra shot of espresso in that” Josh was still looking at the book. “Sir” “Uh, sorry” “An extra shot of espresso, it’s on special offer today Sir” “No thanks” “Ok that’ll be”, Josh pulled out his wallet still looking at the open book and handed over a ten dollar bill. The assistant placed the sandwich on a tray as a young man to her right prepared the coffee. “Enjoy”, she said finally handing the tray across the counter. Wedging the book under the small plate with the sandwich he turned to the seating area. The only free table was home to an overturned paper cup that was slowly dripping it’s remaining contents onto the seat below. On the far wall sat a young woman alone, he headed in her direction. “Is this seat taken” he asked looking at the women. “No” came the short reply.

The F.B.I and private detective agencies were not able to make any breakthrough in the series of murders, which is happening in the city and around mostly persons of influential nature and persons who were avaricious wealthy creators through industries and individual profession.

They suspected of terrorists plans for sabotaging the reputation of the city since creating the fear in the minds of people. This will make important personnel to leave the city in the grip of fear and will make the city more vulnerable for more crimes and panicky situation, which will lead to government instability and will give terrorists an upper hand in their nefarious activities.

Because nearly more than 1000 people have been rendered jobless and most of them when they lost their jobs had only their possessions to sell and their costly belongings rather than any savings in their hand” “Well . . . . Thanks for the information . . . Kindly make a through enquiry and take a survey and prepare possible list of people who have been rendered homeless or jobless or it is better to enquire their employer themselves so that whomever not emotionally unstable and in a very pitiable mindset can be watched regularly of their activities”. “It will not be possible to watch all of them on a personal basis . . . At least we can ask for more police force to make strict vigilance on these parts and also you can go personally if some of them are missing from the abandoned structure itself or coming on any of the list of the federal old convicts”. 21   VAIRAM “Okay . . . . thanks for the discussion . . . it

Born to be free

November 6, 2014 in Crime by Anna123

Born to be free Here I am sitting alone Torn and battered Harassed in every way, You telling your power on me Making me feel As low as life can be. You starve me every time I ask for some piece of bread. You throw the water on my face, When all I want is to drink. You display you power To one who is helpless and You call yourself human. No, I call you a terrorist. You take delight In seeing me in distress, You name it a pure religion I name it absolute deviligion. While I wait for justice Not from you, the evil. I pray and pray to my God above And believe he will answer someday. Afternoon, I know you devil Will slit my neck so far, So I wake up early morning, Tears rolling down my cheeks, I look through the hole on the roof, I see sunray seeping with no bar. My conscious mind speaks to me, That someday you will also see, The river, the lake and the sea, You will be with people Who loves and cares for thee, You will see the birds and dare And hear the buzz of the

The fate of my aid will be…. After the cease of my breaths…. After I complete the life jourmey….. From ultimate vitality to death… Pragya Awasthi

The women whose libidos increased claimed to want sex all the time. “We have a pretty active sex life as it is, but pregnancy makes me a wild animal!” one woman claimed. “Three times [last night]! I want it again but he is asleep,” another woman gushed. sex Toys for couples I watched a bunch of animation on DVD (Courage the Cowardly Dog and Toradora!) and I got some DVDs in the post and an order that I thought might not ship because one of the items was Limited Edition and could have already sold out actually did ship. I also traded in an anime boxset that I didn’t want for an anime series I did want at a local secondhand store, which I was very pleased about as the former was a somewhat rash purchase of a series that I wasn’t sure about, and since I haven’t got tons of money at the moment, I was glad to be able to get a series I did want by trading in something I already had and paying just a few quid for the rest of the cost, I was really sensible about it too, I went into the store
