Lourdes of Loki 12 - The Bodyguard
Yes, I was definitely going to bless this Vittorio if I one day got to meet him. He did live up to his promise after all and found us a bodyguard who lived up to our demands. It didn't take more than a week, before Vittorio called Gaetania and told her that he had found our man and that was sending him our way. A trustworthy and tough fellow according to Vittorio. He and my best friend had chatted a bit more and Gaetania invited this bodyguard up to the Clinic after our last client the next day. That seemed like safe just in case we weren't comfortable with him, it was better to not having him knowing where we lived.
But we needn't have to worry, about ten minutes after our last client, a reporter for a flashy fashion magazine, had left us, a huge black guy walked over the threshold. Thinking 'mob bodyguard', I had expected some generic badass, a thug with shaven head, scarred face, tattoos, piercings and worn leather jacket. But no, I guess we had crashed one too many B-movie p

"Paolo Meparo," Gaetania giggled as she poured coffee for me. Honestly, I thought that guy looked like a Ken Doll!"
"But I can promise you he had his things all in order!" I replied as I leant back against the pillar. "You're right that he might look a bit too clean cut, but he has his reasons."
"Like trying to attract an audience of 13 years olds, right?!"
"Well, sort of."
"I've never really understood that with boy band, the music coming second hand. After a bunch of kawaii muchachos."
"Well, there's money to be made in that business, so it ought to be clear as crystal to you, my dear She Scrooge, why people keep doing it."
"You have a valid point, Lou! So how about today? There's this beach volley tournament not far from here..." she picked up a flyer from our kitchen counter, waving it in front of me. "...and I'm ready to bet my grandma's antic pearl earrings that the place will be jam packed with gorgeous hunks with abs you could crack nuts upon."
"Well, I'm not holding anything a

Grace Milton and Bertrand Summerset are in the music industry, and Gaetania and I got to know them in a bar where Grace was performing with her band "Wild Wind." We had started talking after the concert and found that we shared the same kind of outlook of life take what was there and have fun. Be tough and clever and don't play it overly nice, because if you did, you'd only become used, abused and set up. And don't worry that much about tomorrow. However among those who were your real friends, honesty counted.
Grace sung and had more or less put the band together, which was a collection of beach-smart surfer looking boys of the kind you only find in California. And Bertrand was a kind of manager, roader, bodyguard, accountant and all in all. The kind of 'jack-of-all-trades' who almost always came with bands like this. And my first assumption was that Bertrand and Grace was a couple, but I then learn
I Belong To You I hate rain. Not really, I love it. Just not when the most beautiful, perfect, wonderful, perfect, comfortable, waterproof, perfect coat in existence has been savagely butchered by my so-called friend’s Dalmatian. Every slap of rain on my naked arms is a stinging reminder of the irreparable hole in my wardrobe.
Some people might try to fill the void with lesser coats but I can’t bring myself to betray Valentino, even after her death. Instead my slippery arms grapple with each other in wet shock as I stumble to the op shop, clinging to one last thread of hope. I know in my deadened heart that I’ll never have another coat like her. Yet here I am, blundering through the elements in my vain search for the acceptance and warmth I found wrapped in Valentino’s woollen sleeves.
Thud. My body slams into the door, making the ‘open’ sign quiver and the bells tinkle in offense. I fight for entry, the door’s assault doubled by the stale funk of
