One of those promises several times Linda up in her jacket and dunking her body down against the asphalt. He goes from side to side of linda's body, and alternately kicking against her stomach, her chest and her arms.
I actually thought that I was going to die. For it does so hurt to be beaten on the way, tells Linda to Expressen.
