"What do you say?  You can have her for 10$ an hour, and you may do with her, all what you like!" 

For some years ago I joined a group of development aids workers.  While we were staying for some days in a small remote  town, a police officer suddently came and offered us this girl.  We were surprised and at first we didnīt know what to say.  After we had commed to our sences again, we of course said no thanks, and with a grunt the officer turned about, gave the girl a hard jerk with the rope, and walked back to the police station pulling her after him. 

Our landlord told us afterwards, the local police had about a dozen foreign women from Europe locked up in the basement cells under the police station.  He also told us it was bad, we had not rented her.  Now she would be punished very hard, because we had rejected her.
