Sofia closed the subject, realising she wasn’t going to be able to winkle out of Paolo the amount of the ransom paid.
“Well whatever... it’s Tony’s money, so why should I care? Marcia will take it hard though because she reckons what’s Tony’s is hers too! Now, Paolo, when am I coming round to your place again for a games night?” Sofia giggled.
Much as Paolo was relieved for the subject to be changed, and excited about ‘games’ with this fascinating woman, his diary was rather crowded next week with Marcia and Livia’s return.
“Tonight? Tomorrow?.” he suggested.

Okay, finally caught up! This would be a real page turner if it were in traditional book form. Very well written, Neville.
Hopefully tomorrow I can get caught up on Drew's and Steve's series'.

Thanks very much Christopher. I really appreciate you taking so much time out to read all these in one hit as you have. Drew and Steve’s work is really terrific, so you should have an enjoyable day!

I just cannot get over Paolo’s continuing good fortune and spoilt for choice too. It cannot last I’m sure.

Yes, I think Steve's right. A combination of his luck and his quick wits have kept the guy in the game, but will his wits fail under pressure, will his luck run out? Actually I'm guessing his luck won't run out, lucky people tend to stay lucky I reckon. But his wits, well, that's another matter.
