Fedeltà #656


Paolo obediently went back to the sofa, watching Livia all the time. She looked so delicious, standing there wrapped in her black satin sheet. She was quite tiny compared to Sofia and Marcia, but she was just what he wanted, and wanted badly. Her pretty mouth smiled and her green eyes seemed to sparkle.

She had a remote controller in her hand with which she dimmed the lights and started some music. It was John Prine singing ‘My Happiness’. This might foretell much happiness for Paolo.

Much later, Paolo would wonder just how much Livia had practised her next routine.

    I've heard of John Prine but I've never heard any of his music. I'll have to check that one out.

    Sadly John Prine died from Covid earlier in 2020. He’d not been well but it was the virus that took him down. A very sad loss. Just heard his wife Fiona talking about his loss on BBC Radio4. Must listen to him again soon.
