For The Love Of Us – Episode 11

… continued from Episode 10.  **Present day** I step out from the taxi and make my way into Jevinik. My tummy growls; what is left of my lunch break had better be enough time to fill it up. Today I did not take any files along, as I usually do, to get extra work done […]
