Fedeltà #611

by

Tony was having some kind of trauma. The tough guy was riven with a combination of anger, guilt and overwhelming sense of loss, but irrationality was taking over too. Tony couldn’t believe Terry was dead. He felt that somehow ‘he knew’ his twin was alive, but he wouldn’t go to see the body to resolve it once and for all. He thought if he did, then all hope might disappear.

Paolo put the package, unopened, in the office rubbish bin outside.

“What was in it?” Tony demanded later.

“No idea, Tony, I binned it like you said.”

“You fucking WHAT?”

    Almost feeling sorry for Tony... and given Tony's unpredictability now, if I were Paulo I'd be very very careful.
    Great to have Fedelta back, Neville :) still thoroughly enjoying it!

    Thanks Drew. Been very busy recently with kid’s birthday, ma-in-law and work work... and all the jobs Mrs H wants me to do... It wasn’t so much writer’s block, but writer’s surfeit of possible plot routes. In the end I had to go for it and hope it pans out OK. Thanks very much for sticking with it, despite timing hiccups.
