~ The Lives of Harry Lime: Ticket to Tangier, Part 4
Along for the ride
Let’s face it, Harry knew that he wasn’t the one to call the shots. Obviously, someone had looked for him with the personal ad in the newspaper, led him to the concierge who handed him an envelope, and provided him with a limousine ride to the airport, flight tickets to Tangier, and money in his pocket. Someone else was calling the shots.
Time out for a date
He intended to find out who that was, but tonight he was on a date with a beautiful woman. He had money (from his benefactor) in his pocket to treat her well on this night out, so in this area of his life, Harry was still the one in charge. But then, his date paid for the meal!
Look who’s calling the shots!
Harry is in for even more surprises when the airline hostess he is dating proves to be more wealthy than he is. Not only that, but her money has allowed her to control his circumstances. It’s a rather awkward position for Harry to find himself in.
