'She takes one last look at the bed; and there - oh look, oh yes, see what he’s left on the pillow there: an elegant pale yellow with a mint leaf on top and a small spoon made of silver. It’s a glass of sorbet! She fans herself with relief: he hasn’t left a goodbye sundae as is his wont sometimes, or (worse) the banana split when he doesn’t stay the whole night. No, this is quite a different message altogether. A sorbet is merely a refresher between courses. He’ll be back!'

"...the following tale, though absolutely 100% true, is not for the semi-skimmed. Crime, betrayal, kidnapping, romance, thwarted passion, monologing; and that’s just the starter.
