Yes, just one. It's my bait and switch tactic. Once you come over and see how handsome I am, you will be buying me drinks for the rest of the night!

Afa being civil is concerned, dont worry. Im a professional. I can handle it.

Arre..ye ladkiyon ko lagta hai ki main sundar hoon toh saare ladke age peeche bhagenge. Not me! Sundarta is a commodity, attitude is sexy. Every diamond is a stone, but not every stone is a diamond.

The legal aspects of it... after all she is a lawyer

And I was telling Kaslipaas pai about the drinks... not you, my Love2seven tai. For you, all drinks are on the house

And I agree with Kalipaas pai, sundarta is just a commodity. Just look at me, dark (literally black. When I walk into an overlit room, the room adjusts itself... same with tablets and smartphones)... pimples all over. But the rose in my hand has girls floating all around me

As I said earlier, it's all about attitude. When we meet, you need to get gussied up, put on some nice low cut blouse and short skirt, display your fun loving personality and let the night flow. Who knows, if things work out, you might end up having my baby!
