|Luigi as I imagine him|
“Have you had breakfast? No point in racing down to the police station since the …” Michael hesitated for a second “... killer ... is long gone. A cup of tea and some quick brekkie will set us up for everything we've got to do this morning.”
“Michael, you've done so much for us already—I dunno. We don't want to impose.” What Luigi really wanted was to take Cody right away from there and help him start rebuilding his life. But he knew that that wasn’t going to happen, that the effects of what had happened might stay with him for ever.
“Your mate here was nearly killed. What kind of a person would I be if I could just walk away from that?” He stopped for a minute. “You've had a brush with evil,” he said to Cody, “and you need … well … look, the rest of us must try and offset that. Try and make up for it.” He spoke simply and hesitantly, as if he was embarrassed at having to make the explanation. To him, his actions clearly seemed completely logical and right.
Luigi felt an immediate rush of liking for the other man. So he smiled, little aware that even with straight men, his beauty was so extraordinary that when his face was filled with happiness or affection it made him irresistible. Michael's smile in return was startled.
Luigi looked at Cody and then back at Michael and accepted for them both. Cody was in no fit state to make rational decisions.
