Expecting a bollocking for being late, Paolo explained away his delay in getting to the office despite living far closer than Tony.
"I was, er, entertaining," he said rather bashfully.
"So you were more interested in shagging than getting off your arse and coming here to see me?" Tony accused.
"I had to drop her off home on the way..."
"Whatever... you're here now." Tony couldn't care less what Paolo's excuses were; he needed to talk to him now. He showed him Terry’s text.
"What's going on Paolo? What the fuck's going on?"
"Looks like he's flipped." was Paolo's reply.
