Luigi realised that Jason had deliberately and delicately directed this conversation to get to this point. Clever, he thought. But … is it wise, right now? He was ready to intervene when Cody spoke.
“I don’t know any more. I … love Phillippa. But … I need … I … God, this is so difficult … I need men.”
“It’s a bugger’s muddle. So to speak. You know what I mean!” Jason chuckled. He continued, more earnestly, “You know, if loving men is half of you, it’s hard, very hard. I knew a man once, in England. Brent and I met him at a pub, and we connected. He must’ve picked up the vibes. He was in his—I dunno, late fifties, early sixties—and he said he’d been gay all his life. Like 100% gay. He’d been in the Coldstream Guards …”
“ …mmm … uniforms …” interrupted Luigi.
“ … and his whole life had been spent with men. And then one day he met a woman and he fell in love with her and they got married.”
