The Painting #10


Dawn's accountant friend agreed that he was probably the wrong side of the Inland Revenue, but did warn that she should be careful, because he was Italian and might have ‘mafia connections’ and equally importantly, Giorgio seemed to possess some strange, ‘almost magical’ powers.

Dawn ignored her friend’s advice, if only because she simply didn’t have the money. Her only recourse might have been to contact the ‘bank of mum and dad’, but she had no intention of doing so as that would open Pandora’s box, prompting a whole load of connected and unconnected questioning, accusations and recriminations. No way!
