I asked about your mask, and Adam and Eloise said you were. Jacob smiled. There is very little social climbing , as Adam called it. I try to help where I can.

They need more stability in their lives and their incomes. Hardly anyone will even come near it, so I live here comfortably enough. No one objects.
After a long pause, Jacob nodded. What else am I going to do? Gerard raised one eyebrow.
Jacob looked down for a moment, and then he slowly glanced back up. Gerard tried his best to rein himself in and hoped Jacob would not notice his half-mast erection.
Jacob smiled as his eyes lowered again briefly. Even when I was confused as hell, they were distracting me. I do not want a gentleman—I want the fantasy that rode up and saved me today. Gerard laughed low in his throat, arching up a bit as Jacob worked his cock.

Gault calls the duo "cold-blooded killers, more adored than movie stars" and he's not wrong, whether it's women imitating Bonnie's fashion or a petrol pump hand describing them as Robin Hoods, "only stealing from the banks" until Hamer smartly points out they're not giving to the poor.http://hjfgjhgf.co.vu/bycy-yamaha-v.php
The Highwayman's Footsteps | Nicola Morgan
In The Highwaymen Bonnie and Clyde are barely in sight, with mere glimpses of their passing car or the pair as they enter a building. They're not the stars here - this isn't their story. The question is, does it pay off? The Highwaymen has the soft pace of a detective movie, a ruggedness of a western and the graphic shoot outs of an old action film.
Costner and Harrelson are portrayed as rebels, which might seem far fetched when you see them out of breath pursuing a suspect or baffled by new technology like a wiretap. But the film treats these issues with gentle humour alongside the brutal lengths they are willing to go to catch the criminals at large. After all, it's based on a true story.
Hamer is riddled with bullets, Gault is struggling and a burden on his daughter, they have their baggage but they get the job done. The chemistry between Costner and Harrelson is sweet, which seems a strange word to use, but not when you see them poke fun at each other. Harrelson easily switches between the seriousness of confessing to the younger officers the sheer number of people he's killed and the toll it has taken to the lightness of teasing his partner. Costner plays Hamer with a quiet strength, from the first moment we see him - he has a warthog rather than a guard dog - is clear.
He's not someone to mess with but stands outside the norm. That's The Highwaymen to a tee, it's outside of expectation, and that's a good thing. The team could have easily glamorised the brutal rampage of Bonnie and Clyde, playing up to their stylised iconic status, but it doesn't. At times it means the pace can feel a bit slow as the Rangers study maps - endless maps - or study the ground looking for clues, but there's a charm to it.
