Part of the book:
Every day when Mardom wakes up, she looks around first. She looks around and when the blond woman’s blue eyes stare at her. She touches her neck and massages the painful parts of her shoulders and neck. She gets out of bed. She puts on her pants and finds her shirt under the sheets scattered on the floor and then puts it on. She picks up the cigarette paper then the tobacco and puts it as much as a small bite between the paper then puts the filter on, she goes to the window as he smashes the tobacco between her fingers. She tries to wet the sticky side of the cigarette paper with her dry tongue and looks out the window. And as she breathe in the smoke, she counts .. one .. two … she sees him without saying three yet
