Giorgio's reminder had irritated Dawn so much, she decided that there was no way she would pay the man. The threat of ‘further steps’ didn’t worry Dawn. What could he do? She would call his bluff and if she ended up paying him anything to stop him pestering her, it would be just a nominal amount with the threat that she could expose him to the tax authorities. She wasn’t one to be bullied. Dawn seemed to have conveniently forgotten that Giorgio had produced an excellent painting for her and it was only fair that she should pay for it.
