A story that ends with "I wish I did not meet the man".

Topics: Illegal drug trade, English-language films, Heroin Pages: 4 (416 words) Published: September 30, 2003
Rose, a young graduate, was searching for a company job. She got a

teaching

appointment but rejected it. Teaching, she said, is a profession that
