I also play basketball with my cousins and sort of excel in table tennis, modesty aside. I recently re-discovered biking and I enjoyed it immensely. See, I have a pretty active life style.
Cup’s childhood, which at the age of eleven one feels should have been full of love, innocence and free from harm, was lost following the sudden death of her mother.
