Liza sat listening to the country music , sipping wine, gazing into the starry sky, on an old rugged couch.Submerged deeply in vague thoughts ,she whispered sighing deeply ,.”I wish to be a bird”.
Phone rang,”Liza, come down quickly, clients are waiting” a rude voice at the other end of the receiver” .”.Okay Ann”!! she replied .Liza hurriedly ,done her touch ups concealing all blemishes,hastily went downstairs.Saw two men awaiting for her,one stout in his early 60’s, another a young drug addict.Liza stood awaiting Ann ,as she was busy displaying the rate cards .£150 for sensual services for 30 minutes ,£300 for intimate involvement lasting 45 minutes and £500 for full flung sex only for 90 minutes.This shift continue after a short break of 30 minutes for the whole night,if no customers girls can retire in their small rooms.

Sick workers won’t have any scope in this business,as they will be treated like weeds, thrown out of job ,if of no use.Liza got the pinch of fate, engrossed about her future ,Ann now a days babel more towards these three girls.Liza looked at the two other girls and said,” i wanna die peacefully,I remember how brave Sara was rehabilitated by” THE FIRE”a rehabilitation agency for sick and old sex workers.But getting in there is crucial for our existence.Running away is the only preferred path for freedom.”….
