High Speed Car Chase in the Countryside I’ll never forget what happened one day while I was fishing. I had just caught the biggest fish I had ever seen in my life when suddenly I heard a siren, so I let go of the fish by mistake. There was a bridge above me, so I went on top of a hill so I could see what was happening. I saw nothing; I just heard it. I started walking down the hill when I heard a gun shot.

As a consequence by the end of my essay I hope that you to will want these things locked away and never heard of again. My first hate is...
A Modern Bisclavret Although climbing the same black, rusted stairway to his third floor Brooklyn apartment reminded him of the absence of luxury in his life, Peter was nevertheless happy to return home to his loving lady after a grueling day of masonry. Spending eight hours on your knees, hunched over a slab of concrete would however, make returning to his humble abode seem like returning to a town house in the upper-east side to most people.
