This week Hubby's Gambling Debt continues with answers to some of the questions readers were asking last week. I hope you find it exciting.
Hubby's Gambling Debt 2
“I am Salvatore DiMaggio; my friends call me Sal,”
The leader of the thugs offered his hand and when Candace shook it, he lifted the long manicured fingers of her trembling hand to his lips and kissed it tenderly.
‘Why would such a handsome and obviously well educated gentleman condescend to involving himself in such petty criminality?’
Seeing the confusion on her face, Sal laughed softly and then proceeded to explain the situation to her.
“I am what you might call an alternative venture capitalist,”
“What! You mean you’re a loan shark?”
Turning towards her disheveled husband, Candace gave him an incredulous stare.
“Tell me Jack; tell me it’s not true…. What the hell were you thinking getting involved with a loan shark?” she asked so close to tears.
“My dear Mrs. Pilchard, loan shark isn’t exactly my favorite job title, but if you insist on calling me one, perhaps I should forget I’m a perfect gentleman and start acting like one.”
“Uh… Mr. DiMaggio…. Sir, please… how much does my husband owe you exactly?”
“Your husband defaulted severally on a $40,000.00 loan even after the little reminder we gave him last month.”
His lively eyes went dead as he pointed to the cast on Jack’s left arm.
Candace trembled in fear; she was now face to face with the flip side of Salvatore DiMaggio’s Jekyll and Hyde persona.
