It’s my eleventh birthday today. Empty house is mocking me ... echoes of my own voice to greet me.

By Adin Zaffar
10494_3_27_2015_1.gifHe is tall, lanky, and overbearingly snotty. His abnormally spidery fingers would go into a convulsion every time he got excited, which was often, and his face would contort into a mad grin that can put The Joker’s trademark grin to shame. The creators of Batman would have immediately cast him as The Joker if they knew of his existence. He is popularly known in school as A.T.Zee, and is considered the Chief of Staff in the gossip kingdom, a title awarded purely on merit; a child prodigy to attain such a high post at the age of roughly 18. He is in A-levels at the prestigious Furries International School. Indeed, he has worked hard to earn this position. ....

Though there are many challenges and additional pitfalls for the Pakistani cricket fans in the United States. ....
