The coffee was cappuccino, not the best of its kind, the croissant was a bit dry and the sit comfortable. I sat drinking slowly my coffee and watching the people around me. It was a bit after noon and the mall was full of mothers with young children, old

Pekka had left and I was there alone under the gray sky with a cup of cold coffee and no more cigarettes. I decided a walk to the petrol station near my house wouldn\'t hurt me so I took my jacket and started walking towards the petrol station.

Looking at Alexei while he was talking with Ivan I started thinking how easily we include and conclude death in our life. Heart attack and we feel relieved, we understand it we can live and continue living with it. It was the same with murder. Murdered by

Leena looked in a really good mood and I thought to make a little use of her good spirit and the same time give her a bit of adventure; after all it is her who complains often that she never does anything interesting. Apart of that Leena has something ver
