But 2 violent, unnecessary accidents later their true feelings for each other became as obvious as the Phantom chorus line at a Turkish hammam weekend break.

“The next time will totally redefine everyone’s notion of a coming together: and not in a good way.”
“Unless you’re into that sort of thing of course,” he added.
