The Paradise on Earth.

Whenever I went for a holiday towards the sea coast I always wondered what it would be to live next to the sea. How different would life be? I envied people who woke up and could see the ocean, the sun and the waves hitting the shore. People often say, the sea can sicken you! …

Gone In Sixty Seconds

Once upon a time, during the midnight hour, a few uninvited guests decided to say 'hi' to their new neighborhood.
