Quietly Paolo donned a pair of latex gloves. He found some scissors in the kitchen and returned to the tragic lovers. Somehow he managed to get his hands between Flaherty’s immobile legs to the cause of the older man’s troubles, the diamond ‘ring’. It wasn’t easy with just a pair of kitchen scissors, but Paolo persevered, slowly, and finally managed to cut through the platinum ring, gingerly removing it with its diamond. He pocketed it together with Flaherty’s mobile and his own used condom, carefully tied.
He took time to clean his presence away. No trace. Nothing left to chance.

Thanks Drew. The finale ripped it out of me last night! I worried that it might turn the reader against Paolo, but I guess he’d already shown how ruthless he could be... and, Nicole made it too easy for him 💍

And they say diamonds are a girl's best friend. Really exciting, Neville. I'm trying to get caught up on the story.

Thanks Christopher. I’ve been going ballistic on it recently, trying to catch up lost ground myself!
