There had been much rabid speculation as to what might happen when Deeby Macc found himself a floor away from his supposed dream woman(referring to Lula), and how this incendiary new element might affect the volatile relationship between Lula and her boyfriend. These non-stories had all been peppered with undoubtedly spurious comments from friends of both—“He’s already called her and asked her to dinner,” “She’s preparing a small party for him in her flat when he hits London.”
