After running through the surf with Dougie, who now lay sound asleep on the cushion next to her, she had strolled along the beach for a while.

Giuseppe Conatelli looked away from the playing field where his soccer team Empoli FC was playing a home game against Parma, to grab his mobile phone that was vibrating in the pocket of his warm duffle coat.
