Clarity looked at the luminescent hands of her swiss-made watch, a fine-brushed, polished steel Aquaracer from Tag Heuer with scratch resistant sapphire crystal, a gift from Cynthia for her twenty third birthday in Malibu, sealing their friendship. It was nearly two thirty AM on the north side of… Read full post »

"We can´t take the share, Buddha Talk will kill us."
"Let´s take the share to James Blond, he´ll be the one to get killed." Clarity sighed.
"Let´s get out of here and then discus… Read full post »
Clarity looked closely at the key. It had an address: 503 bis Governor´s Square, Seven Mile Beach, Nelson Quay, Grand Cayman.
"Where´s my earring?"
"Let´s hold on to this key and ask the guard," said Clarity. They closed the safe deposit box saying the word 'koan' aloud,… Read full post »
Clarity and Flower came back into the sponsored cabin, knowing they´d done the right thing by eating before proceeding with their mission. Buddha Talk was showing Joroby a one hundred dollar bill from Lofty´s bank reserves, insisting that the bill looked washed but that it was genuine, an… Read full post »
Clarity and Flower walked with Joroby to their seats overlooking the arena, which was filled with an anxious crowd holding signs such as 'crush Easy Glove Bubba', or 'Easy Glove to the compartment.' Clarity looked down from the VIP cabin and noticed a good looking woman, the one… Read full post »
Clarity and Flower walked with Joroby to the exit of the bank, set on a pleasant shopping center known as Cayman Grand Harbor, East of Georgetown, which looked like a small, typical British colony village, and included a sculptor shop, a bookshop, a liquor store, a marketplace, and a… Read full post »
Clarity and Flower followed Rapple to the elevator, which had five underground floors. The banking officer pressed on the 'lobby' button, and the three of them surfaced in front of a lively lobby with a marble floor, high ceiling, gilded columns, and large glass windows. The lobby was divided in two… Read full post »
The man, named Clark, took Clarity and Flower to the lower level of the shop, a large basement showing a wall poster advertising crop dusting services, and several golf carts parked in line. Peeking in the far distance, beyond the carts, Clarity could see an open doorway, leading to a… Read full post »
Clarity breathed the hot midday air in sunshine of Georgetown in Grand Cayman, and hopped with Flower on the yellow route one bus to West Bay, where the Coral stone club hotel, a nice four star, had settled, along with Bubba key. She wrote the name Bubba key… Read full post »
Blond had the look of a man ready to surf to Hawaii from the Southern tip of Australia. He was so angry that Delemo had to empty a bucket of seawater on him several times, to cool him down. Yet, as he told Clarity, over dinner at… Read full post »

Clarity sat down and crossed her legs on a sofa of Bubba Key´s room, which had three areas, the bedroom, an adjacent living room, and a bathroom. She was wearing jeans and a white blouse, with loafers, and felt at ease. She sat near Flower, who was wearing a colorful… Read full post »
Clarity turned backwards and let Taimi zip her diving neoprene wetsuit, preventing Blond to cut his hands too deeply on her lower back. She was excited to take her first diving class in order to get the Padi diving license. She saw Buddha Talk tilt his head towards the right… Read full post »
The girls drove back to the guest house on Costera de Las Palmas, near the Fairmont Acapulco Princess, debating heatedly whether diving with the fat man was an opportunity or a risk. In the evening, after dinner, Cynthia and Taimi were swinging on a swinging lounge sofa, while Lanai… Read full post »
"Let´s follow this banner plane, I want to know more about Lofty Bank and this financial product they sell," said Clarity.
"Cool, I´m going with you where ethnography is to be uncovered, where is this plane going?" asked Flower.
"Off-road, I think, it´s head… Read full post »

Clarity saw Lanai and LT step away from Ms. Avenworth. The girl with auburn hair watched Isaias, who stopped sweeping the floor with an amused look on his face. His expression seemed to approve of the coming confrontation. Clarity saw him move towards the entrance and close the door… Read full post »
Clarity stepped inside the hut, followed by Lanai and LT. She scanned the single space inside and noticed the blue lava lamp which was lit in the middle. Sitting on the ground with his knees folded, a man in his sixties with shoulder length black hair was cooking various… Read full post »
