Ed was off to the Christmas party of one of his new high-society friends - Greg Taylor. Timothy didn’t like one iota of the man. He was a piranha, and Timothy worried that it could be very toxic when Greg and Ed met. He was high up in the Conservative party, had made his money in high finance, shipping insurance or something, and lived in one of the few remaining houses in Soho. It disturbed him that Ed was going into the dragon’s lair. Not only that Ed would get hurt, but that there were similar streaks of Greg in Ed - streaks which made Timothy profoundly unwell.
Here they were on Waterloo bridge, wrapped up in the chill of night. Timothy was extremely uncomfortable but had to say what he had to say. There’s no point dodging the truth. His voice was frosty.
“Look, you do what you need to do honey. Do all this social climbing, and everything around it. Walk with the kings and see how they live. You’ll get what you need from them.”
