GIGOLO - A story in 100 words


‘I met Piers through an online dating agency,’ gushed Candy. ‘We hit it off straight away; we have so much in common. We like the same sports, Polo, Horse Racing, and Tennis.’

I spluttered into my coffee, but Candy just rushed on breathlessly.

‘He loves blondes, weekends in Paris and late summer holidays in Cannes.  Oh! And Jane, he’s so handsome. Dark brown hair and eyes, and a deep tan. He’s 28 and single, and works in the service industry.’

She paused for breath at last.

I laughed aloud  ‘Sounds like a gigolo to me!’

‘Oh no! He’s a Scorpio!’
