”thank you doc,….. ”

”Follow me to my office,… “ the doctor

instructed him.

He followed the doctor to his office and sat

down opposite him,….

”So tell me why your sister wants to commit

”What!!!? ”

outcome of her action,….. Her throat is badly

hurt and her vocal chord is badly damaged,…. I’m
