lt was rather the opposite. To be honest l never really liked

the writing. It was just a job. Like selling shoes or whatever.

Something one has to do. You must've sold a Iot of shoes. What do you mean? I mean, since you

can afford all this. I can cope, yes. Smells wonderful. Dinner is ready. Cheers! Enjoy your meal. Is this a..?

on a motorbike? Isn't that rather bumpy? Yeah, but you get used to it. I wanted Isabel to see
