Sentence: It was on many occasions in which Luis would stroll out in those favorite jeans of his. As he reached for change at the vending machine, his hand glided over the blood stain that remained an alter to his first true love. As he walked past the subterranean bistro, onlookers could observe the back of his left knee, a sewing scar mass a testament to his willingness to defend his friends. He kneels to help a young lady with her papers; the oil stain so near his Pumas explained his haberdashardor, a fervor she understood, one that they would share for years to come.
