Fedeltà #574

Sofia’s jeweller client had asked no questions of the provenance of the diamond, whatever he might have wondered privately. Having shown her various ring styles, he’d undertaken to have something ready for a week’s time. That would be a very long wait for a diamond-loving girl like Sofia. He had given her a discount, but even so, it wasn’t by any means cheap. But right now, Sofia still had plenty of means, thanks to Paolo’s carelessness.

Sofia's new best friend, in the right setting and on the right finger, with no questions asked, was worth it’s weight in... diamonds.

    Haven't a clue how this is going to pan out, but really enjoying the ride :)

    For the first time in ages I have a germ of an idea... which is completely different from any plans I might have had. The adrenalin’s really kicking in now!

    Target 80k words to curtain down. Then it might be publishable and provide vfm. Of course, at some point I have to return to the feckin’ hospital. Tony M’s been parked there for most of the story!
