Malika tried to steady herself as she swayed across the pavement on Marine Drive. Her body seemed to be moving to the gentle rhythm of the waves hitting the embankment.  Why did I drink so much, she cursed, her vision beginning to get hazy. Just a few more steps and I’ll be home, she thou  Read More...
