Fedeltà #507


The rest of the journey to see the body went in frosty silence. Livia sat in the back of the car a masterpiece of cold, beautiful haughtiness. Paolo pulled up and made no attempt to get out and open the door for her as one might expect of a chauffeur. To Paolo’s silent delight, Livia’s composure was rather compromised as the small woman struggled down from the large SUV, her skirt riding up.

However, it provided Livia the ideal launchpad for her transformation into a distraught, grieving widow for anyone around who might be watching. And they were.

Curtain up!

    I love "a masterpiece of cold, beautiful haughtiness" a brilliant description of Livia.

    I was about to say what Drew said, so I'll just say, "Hear, hear!"
