Fedeltà #135

by

If Paolo hadn't been so eager to please and collect on Livia's promise, he might have stood back, put his feelings on hold and been more questioning. But he was young, captivated and encouraged and flattered in the most disarming way so he was mere putty in Livia's expert hands. She had him under her spell. He didn't respond directly.

"What exactly do you want me to do then?" he asked her, sounding as tough and confident as he could.

"I want you to take over the business... and take me too! You know you can!
It'll mean redundancies though."

    He's just putty in her hands, isn't he? Can't blame him, though, I'd probably be the same.

    We probably have our own visions of Livia. My own kicks me in the guts even imagining her. I have to remember though that she is a bad girl... but that makes her even more enticing. 🤪

    I've known some manipulative women. I've got a pretty clear image of her in my head.

    In my heart I stick to the convention that women are sugar and spice and all things nice... but that’s been my experience. I’m working on other people’s recorded experiences for my fictional women.
