After he steps up and does what he knows best, which is getting money, it´s only fair he takes his right hand man Cashmere with him.

Their ages were seven and nine, two years younger than their youngest daughter. Her husband was living a double life. Her husband had a dual-personality. Tanya was devastated and felt like such a fool. How could he have another family across town and she not know? She soon divorced her husband.
