Born around , the future poet was kidnapped from some part of Africa and transported to Boston aboard the slave ship Phillis in A frail child of not more than seven, she miraculously survived a transatlantic journey that killed nearly a quarter of her fellow-passengers a figure slightly higher than average for slave ships of that time. Only those unfit for work on the plantations—women, children, the elderly, sick, or disabled—continued on to Boston to be sold as domestic servants.

Немец лежит в постели и ждет. Самый крупный мужчина из всех, с кем ей приходилось иметь. Нарочито медленно она взяла из ведерка кубик льда и начала тереть им соски. Они сразу же затвердели. Это было одной из ее многочисленных хитростей: мужчинам казалось, что она сгорает от страсти, поэтому они стремились прийти к ней снова и .
Еженедельные отчеты. - Мидж улыбнулась, помахивая пачкой документов. - Вам нужно проверить, как это выглядит. Бринкерхофф окинул взглядом ее фигуру. - Отсюда выглядит просто отлично.
Бледно-зеленый пол мерцал в сиянии ламп дневного света, то попадая в фокус, то как бы проваливаясь. Лампы зловеще гудели. На стене криво висело баскетбольное кольцо. Пол был уставлен десятками больничных коек.
Итак, кольцо взял немец. - Верно. - Куда он делся. - Понятия не имею.
