    She knew the native language but still had difficulties putting the words together. They were there, in her head, just jumbled up in a mixture that didn’t make much sense. She could not utter a word in front of the screaming policeman.

    While trying to embellish the necklace he wanted for his girlfriend I couldn’t help but think of all the stories he would make up in his mind to tell her, so that she would fall for him, and especially in his bed.
