I was tremendously happy with a quivering joy shooting through me, and I felt the world prostrating before me. As soon as she was gone, I spun around to the direction of Hastings Campus and saw that someone was waving his right hand to me with an amiable grin. It was Gerardo. He was standing on Hastings Street with a cigarette in his left hand and was late for the class as usual. “Hey Shogo, how are you? Is Clarissa your girlfriend? She is amazingly beautiful.

If I can touch her huge ass, you know, if I can rub on her enormous ass once, I can die with no regret. Let me have an opportunity to caress her ass, man, please, ha-ha-ha….”
