Paolo felt guilty, and Livia knew it. She didn’t know why, but knew it might involve another woman... or, even worse, some treachery might be afoot.
Paolo was awkward throughout Livia’s call.
“I know you’re keeping something from me, but right now I need an update. I’ve been online and seen a UK story about searching for a body. Is it the body I’ve been expecting Paolo? Tell all, and if you try to bullshit me you can forget taking up where we left off!”
Paolo told Livia about what had been going on... but lied about the money transfer.
