Richmond 2

He's poolside on chaise, robe and slippers and sunglasses. Lap pool and lanai. One section tree-shaded.


Richmond's on the phone.


A long and slender woman, 30, modelish, does laps in the pool, naked except for goggles.


Richmond is talking business, though his eyes never stray from the swimmer before him.


He tells the person on the other end of the line that he's "home now," clarifies "Maui home."  Overt reference to an ad "campaign," and a glitch. Richmond requests the video be emailed. The call is ended.


Richmond stands and stares at the swimmer and with his back to us removes the robe, revealing the nude figure of a man who keeps himself in shape.


The swimmer stops, stares up at Richmond, removes her goggles.


Richmond dives in.






I suspect Richmond is all about not being entangled.


When we meet him, anyway.
