Red phantoms-3

Feeling distantly curious about the car, I had no any thought it could concern me. However, my eyes were fixed at the fire escape staircase leading on the roof of the building. I regretted being disobedient to Red Mistress. Moreover, my instincts told me I was...

Red Phantoms-2

One flew over Cuckoo’s Nest When I was 19 years old, I failed entrance examination to the Kyrgyz university. First exam was English and I passed it very well. Then it came turn of composition. We were to write a few pages on the theme ‘Communism...
