“On account of being dead!”

“Interesting!” mused Sofia. “But who else might know about it... and come looking for it?”

“Also dead!”

“All dead?”

“Just the two of them.”

“Surely others would know about a big stone like this?”

“Not if they couldn’t see it!”

“How so?”

Paolo double-pointed down to his crotch.
