Fedeltà #178

"Course I got the money, but they ain't getting it!" exploded Tony, continuing with a string of vile expletives.

"I'm not saying give it to them Tony. What I am saying is be prepared just in case we can't find them. It's a last resort, but first, have you thought about calling in the cops?"

"No fucking way! They'd fuck it up, probably deliberately, and I'm not having them crawling over my business. We don't need to be fighting two fucking enemies!"

A potentially dangerous strategy for Paolo maybe, but asking that question would put him way out of suspicion.

    At the risk of being extremely unhgrammatical, this is brilliant and getting brillianter! Nice one, Neville :)

    Thank you Drew. I'd lost my mojo a week or two ago and I was even getting depressed about it. It was mainly a potential continuity problem... I had burned the odd bridge at the start of the story, metaphorically speaking, which was restricting the way I could develop the story. But then I realised, firstly that I might be the only one who would remember that far back and secondly, I can always edit my back catalogue :-)
