Retail Life Episode #16

                Some people have a lot of nerve. They think they can get away with anything. They have probably gotten away with a lot of stuff when no one was paying attention. They get gutsy.

Ghost Story #3

                “Where are we?” Mary asked. She peered out the window, but it was too dark to see anything.
