Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Majorca Flats -- 163


I'll bring the coffees over, if you like,” said Esmé, after he'd paid. “It's quietened down now.”
It's OK,” said Luigi, unsettled by the whole exchange.
She ignored him, and saying “Back in a tick, Di,” to the other woman, she led him out onto the pavement and through the glass door of The Lord Grey.
When Keith saw her, he gave a huge grin, and cried, “Esmé! Ms Beautiful!” and gave her a kiss—on her cheek, not her lips, noticed Luigi—before adding, “Did Luigi introduce himself?”
Nice to meet you, Luigi,” she said, smiling at him in a way which showed she wanted to be friends.
He bowed as Richard, his former lover would have done, and for some reason (perhaps to get back at her) said in Italian, “What a very great pleasure, Signorina!”
Her eyes crinkled and she said in perfect accent-free Italian, “The pleasure is all mine, most gracious Signor.” Somehow in Italian it didn't sound so fulsome as it would have in English.
