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 -- 164


Luigi gave a startled grin then replied in English, “That'll teach me to show off!”
Esmé waved her hand dismissively. “Mum is Italian. Dad is—was, since the country doesn't exist any more — Yugoslav. So I speak Serbian, Italian and Ozzie.”
Luigi bowed to her. “Well, you guessed, I'm Italian.”
I guessed.”
They were sitting drinking their coffees. Keith yawned.
Big night, Keith?” asked Esmé. Jason saw how carefully she avoided looking at Keith and wondered again what their relationship was, or had been.
Ya knaow me,” answered Keith, his accent very strong. Jason could see that he was completely relaxed, that Esmé's probing wasn't disturbing or irritating at all. A sudden sharp knife thrust of grief hit him: how much Brent would have liked these people! They were his sort of people, irreverent, accepting, unfussed, kind, and definitely not out of the top drawer. But of course, Brent would never have met them. It was because of Brent that he, Jason, was here.
You OK?” asked Luigi.
