Fedeltà #59

by

That was all Livia said. It was all Livia needed to say. It was a taunt and one that was far too close to the truth. Years of staying in his place as Tony’s number two had built up a tension in Terry not consistent with the loyalty that Tony always afforded him. They say gratefulness is not a positive emotion; it's one of acknowledgement of debt. It’s more akin to hate than love on the emotional scale. Terry went absolutely mad, but fell short of striking her.

Whether he'd grasped that she and Tony had been screwing is uncertain.

    That analysis of gratefulness is a great take on it. I've never heard that but it makes sense.
