Zampa goes and gives Diana a big welcoming hug, for no other reason than she knows it will annoy her...

"Lets do something today....together....just the two of us...."

Maria's expression is torn between embarrassment and amusement for a moment, but she simply says "Zampa, please don't take such liberties with Diana's fond affection for you!" in a scandalized tone.

She draws closer to ask her sister "I wish to consult your expertise regarding the inhabitants of the house yonder. If there is anything to be known of the new occupants that has come to your attention. There may be closer connections between our family and theirs than I was aware of..."

Zampa takes no notice of her boss's embarrassment, its all part of a day's good work for the rascal. She winks at Diana for good measure, then pays attention to the two sisters conversation.

Diana waved her hands, " Nothing of note....something about the Hammer-Breaker being the lover of myself....or my bookish sister...or mama...or all three of us..."

" I neither confirmed or denied....I may have looked less assured that it was nonsense when they mentioned him being yours...", she smiled craftily.

" Now what is it you wish to ask?", she said brightly.
Zampa goes and gives Diana a big welcoming hug, for no other reason than she knows it will annoy her...

"Lets do something today....together....just the two of us...."
Diana looked slightly non-plussed then a wicked smile crept over her face and she said brightly, " Yes, lets!"

Maria's expression is torn between embarrassment and amusement for a moment, but she simply says "Zampa, please don't take such liberties with Diana's fond affection for you!" in a scandalized tone.

Diana cocked her head to the side, " New occupants? Oh! Yes....they moved in after Girolamo Farussi and his family had that little taxation issue......Uh.....Kurlanders I believe....from.....I want to say Achtan? Maybe?"

Diana looked slightly non-plussed then a wicked smile crept over her face and she said brightly, " Yes, lets!"
Maria's amusement in silence is matched only by the mysteriousness of her smile...

Diana cocked her head to the side, " New occupants? Oh! Yes....they moved in after Girolamo Farussi and his family had that little taxation issue......Uh.....Kurlanders I believe....from.....I want to say Achtan? Maybe?"
"There is no taxation official more efficient in their zeal than the unofficial debt collectors of the card casinos..." Maria answers wryly, already aware of the Farussi family's pressing debts "...But it seemed likely that you might know something of the more recent inhabitants as well. Zampa mentioned they seem to be foreign to Ferromaine, and you have confimed what variety. Are they a large family? I had wondered if they might be merchants, agents for trader in salt or silver trade perhaps?"

Diana seemed to be deep in thought as she regarded Zampa then swung around to answer Marias questions.

" Uh.....Not large.....the father is older...I think....wife deceased.....two sons....one daughter....possibly a cousin...they sounded quite boring, I didn't really pay attention. Uh....precious gems and silver I believe...some shipping interests? Sorry, Dear Sister....they did not seem very interesting people."

"Boring can still be useful to know..." Maria suggests, wryly adding "...I can be quite tedious company, after all."

She offers "And while shipping may not greatly interest you, Diana, I find marine matters quite fascinating of late." and then with a sly smile concludes "Surely the opportunity to make Antonio swear over the bill for a jewel merchant's shiny baubles again appeals to you, dear sister?"

"I think we should pay them a social visit. Diana here would be happy to help I'm sure. I could go as her maid."
Diana chewed on her bottom lip then linked an arm with Zampa, " Well....if your going to be MY maid lets get you into some actual clothing....and makeup...and run a comb through....that."

" Yes, we haven't given Dear Brother a reason to curse for almost a week now.....", she grinned.

" And what will you be up to, Dear Sister?"
