There is no editing for the benefit of my feelings. I’m alive because they think I can help them recover 0,000 that the asshole who wants me dead, conned them out of.
It was hidden.’ My knowledge of the underbelly of society is limited to TV. A bullet is a bullet.”“Because you are on my Facebook, you know I’ve written a book and although it needs to be edited, right now, my solicitor has a copy, and there are several on USB sticks stored with people. If we are here tonight to strike a better arrangement for me and you to work together, then that book has a better use for all of us and I’d change your details as you wish. I want to have him come back home to Melbourne, and I personally wouldn’t mind being allowed to live my life quietly and safely.”“No, Keep our names.
Even in the Soprano’s they kept the women out of it. I’m sitting with a hired killer who has been paid to carry out the job. That you have recently also warned me that I’m better off with you than the ‘angry rogue’ also after me, doesn’t make me feel any better. I may still be killed but they will come straight to your door. He obviously has all the answers.”In the corner of a quiet part of my mind. I’m not quite sure of the rules yet, but I am risking my life that this isn’t how it ends.
“But, after everything you had been through, with the rape, and your son and the burns.” She slowed for a second as she saw the look on my face, “Yes, Paul told us about your past. You’ve had a really horrid time, so I told Vito not to do anything. Enough is enough for one life time don’t you think? I could hear an external buzz weirdly inside my head. Of the few things I expected tonight, this hadn’t been one of them.
He was asked to kill you, but I didn’t think it was fair.
To be honest, I thought it was just a tough nickname, not a lifestyle. I’m just the messenger.’ I told him that I wasn’t too scared of dying as I had had a fairly shitty life, and he assured me that, ‘I’d end up begging for mercy. No, I’m just surprised he was stupid enough to use my name.
I bet he surfaces when he thinks it’s safe.” familiar, but obviously not anyone I knew, and as it turned out, you two were talking on the phone. I was still shocked and scared that he was sitting there. At the time, my scared and panicked brain had tried to filter the news. I’d heard conversations that were never muted, they were out in public domain between business men. That ‘the Toe Cutter had been used to sort a problem’ or that someone may have to ‘get the toe cutter to go fix an issue.’ It had never been exactly spoken as to how, but I had got the gist, that the Toe Cutter solved problems by force or coercion. And he said, ‘No Katherine, just thought you should know. No one threatens my family.” In my head, I thought. If there’s a problem it would get sorted but not your kid.
Although he has just angered them more by disappearing, leaving us to all pick up the pieces. At the time it was new news.“I asked him if he was threatening me? I would have killed him on the spot with my bare hands. But, I’ve done, and am doing, everything I can to sort it.’ Why did they think I was there, if not to try and ensure my son’s safety. I looked at Vito questioningly.“No, love, that’s right.
Let alone with the threat of danger.”“True though, if you’re viewed as a threat, imagine how some people may now see Paul. You want to use me for what I may know, to help get your own justice and revenge.’ From our previous phone calls, I think the tree shredder is going to get used one way or the other.“So you were really going to do it then? Also how much it might cost to counter offer the deal.
Yay, that she felt I had had enough shit for one life time, but what the fuck?
