- But My God I Would Try – Random Story #11
From the corner of my eyes as I sat very still and divided my attention towards the news and analysing the possible aftermath that could develop after this terror, I saw him walking to and fro anxiously in his bedroom, and dividing his attention to each of his gadgets. I would assume he was trying to figure out further about what happened through the internet. Probably contacting people he knew as well who might be in Paris–he speaks French, after all, so most likely he is very familiar with the city, and very much related to it.
He went to the balcony to smoke–probably to calm himself down. I sat still and still watched the news, then chuckled as I couldn’t believe how quick the US fucking A very readily involving themselves in this terror. From counterterrorism to responses from the White House, and just when no one yet claimed responsibility for the attack, nor figured out who might be behind this. Everything was still very much chaotic and everyone was still in confusion.

“Yea, I have a few of them still living in the city.”
That explains why he was so disturbed by this.
And we were supposed to continue fucking, for fuck sake. (continue reading)

But then… she hugged me. Which, I thought, was not a big deal, until… until she tried to grab my butt, and I felt her lips on my neck and her other hand tried to caress my breast, and…— ” Sri stopped, too horrified to continue.

She is someone unknown to me, and what makes her very noticeable is her deformity, if I’m allowed to use such expression, causing her to limp when she walks, and even that is a mild expression. To be precise, she is actually dragging both her feet in order to move around, probably due to broken bones in her legs, resulting in one leg bending forward and the other behind. (continue reading)
