I'm a musician, Sax Player, I'm Ano, wadn, Bu!That's far, your life job we did blues covers and more Tan pop songs, theAMONICA Gailos Man. That's what e've called, because I patit friends who getmarried and and also because I'm originally saying I played theHadmonica, but I took it rader him after they get caught pumping? U Motherof the Braid and e thisame toilet, and the father complained to the management, a Neu gays, just a saying up which makeit in my back stupid, but he says he's Goonalan, good, saying oho anyway. I just want to make that clearfrom the outset that I'm not a criminal, a par for this one thing my father, anthe other hand, has Feil people kept on call im a betteat all, which apparently is a correct teminology for how you should have fetoar dead, velling Basster, I wouldn' like it, you man, there's no love lostbetween having me no after hary treated Mam hardly spoke to him, the last ten yearsof his life.

Lo Bu, it waslike something at the bank sleep I'd rather the Weenup, but the gay. The guy hadbeen shed over Messan Ju boy. He saw me smaling and he said quite softly. Oh Iwouldn't laugh, he's not furny and the way he said it combaned. Withthat look on his Turthe Mal and face made my balls physically etract, my Idon't ember Golpen latetly doing cartoons. I think I actually made thenoise dope and for a second I thought I thought ejust run away too much weskioradman. Then I pulled myself together.

All I have on me is the Bondorfon, my Tobaco and, of course, flags case,I'm not even that confident about looking at the window. In case someonesees me, I end up just lying in the middle of the floor, an one of therooms late out just beer on even floorboards under me. I'm smoking oerlike a Hostageman, I'm using a soap dash. I found in the toilet as an ashtree. I'm not normally a heavy smoker like, but I've maybe done in like tenrollees already any she adboared them all. I coal do. Is We what else histhat they do then? At some point I fall asleep a Wek up, because my back is eating. Mydays are sleeping in floors at Al F, Fi man. I can't deal with it anymore. It'sdone like actual dawn, that's just beginning to get anoy in man who won.Can I be expected to be held up an an empty flaht, just Wai, then I start thithing. Maybe there's an issue, a problem, maybe the flats being watched,maybe have mased sup along the way Mandmaden ther on in me. I tegativelylook at one of the Windows Dores, nothing, not a soul, moveent. In fact,I'm struck behod peaceful as it's the ITCUE, since I've been a weekit done,certainly for their end, it's SA botter. I forgotten her beautiful. It was thevelvety liquid light pouting over the sat splashing offer wendows. I couldtell the Bobs not pagens oi, yes padgeons, but other bonds too. Likespirals and Shit, it was nice man. I felt one with the city you ever hadthat I kal that sounds all happy late, butit's true man. I get these moments ever and again when Youre soldiers fuse, Idon't know, noish you just cat yourself belongingto the woman and knowhing. It's somehow important, doesn'tit matter man. I know what I'mtalking about anyway, I'm standing by the wend of small ten. I see this cardgo past and pull UPF along the street a Loto- and I think, maybe it's frank,the last, but it's not a woman, get so a lost stollen, uniform messages,finishd that chef, the taxi puls away- and I see her walkacross a wotal fly and look through or bag. She can fame what she's lookingfor and has to shake it down the growin and Raon through it. She fainallybrings out of keys and she gets Omand she's trying to get in the door, butshe's old fingers and soms, and she...

...drops hm and I see Yor. She gets annoyed to herself like sheknew hs doing to pick them up, but instead of getting back up street awer,she just stays there coach with that, and I see or hunch over ourself showedostramlen an. I realize she must be Krid. My I don't expect to see that I mean I was emotionally enemy. What with elack of sleep, the sword back and all the beauty of the dawn and all that, but that's just a it floord me, youdon't expect to see things like that, not o the Carner you now like thatpeople being vulnerable. I wish I ihad't see that actually it made me sadcould stop Tayi, never forcis, ally, Bein, Ano, okay, so frank's got to show up today.He's got, I mean in als witham the conditions Ar man. You can't expect meto stay here and definitely, but then, who knows fan I'm not a craml like Ikeep telling you. I don't know what these guys expect im over my depth likeso far, this thiy he's been easy and I'm feeling Ken Ol ver paid to behonest, but maybe this is what you're getting paid for, maybe one of everyten times its a shape meal, and you just have to deal with. I don't know because I I keep tellingyou I'm not a cram. No Man tell you what I doi there's no Barcro and AnniGauso. Also Nice scraper foot as I bouht a so sauce and one of theCOPBOARS, but like a teaspoonful left in the Bolt Mat, that's Shit, man thatand a fesh slice, no tea or coffee. Not that I could make one of the Wasebecause does not kall. I mean her Lon. Am I expected to wait in these cadashes? I do it thou. What else can I do?IEVENTUALLY had to go t the bog af something audible was going to happen.I ended up using junk Meil to Weigt Mars. Whenever I look at Dons PizzaMenu in the sume, we a gain man most of it stoll wage in the UBEEN. I had aRamat Ron, deand we allower brush it Gess the lunch Tane noon and stoll noSana Frank, I'm so bord man. Every minute seems like twenty, every SendinTe Clos, O Sayda'm thinking. This must be Ham, no sure let Goead Man Nice, shame! I'm bored ont, LIK, tets mass is nonefrom sitting in the floor. I'm hungly, I'm tired. I've got NACATINE hair dibecause you amount of smoked. A just wan go warm and then I make myself Frremamble force myself to think three gand man and no gags for the forseablethits, a good thing. You've geen going just don't screw it up now, two PM stone o San and there's nothingmoving out SA. Like hardly anyone walking up the street. Even everyone isonlock Don. Aren't they I'm also like ninety percent sure the house hasn'tbeing watched. I've been taken, tons, lookin ou every window in the place,and I can't see anything that morelys suspicious. So where they ale frank, Imean what D I do I'll give them to for, and I'm going to have to do. Somthinglay five PM. I gave him an Xro Al Min stolenot here I mean this is ridiculous. Now I'm going to have to do Somehn nepok tothe Shor at the very least wars a be corn or short like street away. It'snot seins boes mine, but will do it reck I mean I could be there BAC and TA.So I can get some beereentials. I need Tom. I can't be expected te Eve. Whatthis I force myself to think Thas throughthe connsequances, an amifications like I sae, I'm not good at this, but I'vegot to use my eat. I mean. Can I leave the case in here? Should I take it withme or, as a guy whatn run me a case more canspectivs, but wher? If someonebreaks any Tika and I'll think I've not get any cash on me, I would have to usemy bank count and if I use my car, then there's a record of me being in thearea and I'm Pretti sure frank wouldn't...

...want me to do that. I mean I could take CAS ou, but therewould be a record of that too. Also, the NEA scatsh machines Ma sely and whoknows how many CC TV counters at Bhe caut on get er Soi checking out in the shore paid theAL together. What else can I do? I could forde someone in the Bomy FonnGiv him a drop some stuff off for me, wo Hea Fornol, who doit IDN, who Icould explain thes to and expect the to despoint in the way it's going to help Olso ta bit too much explaining man.The whole thing would be a headid and I don't really want to get anyone elseinvolved with frank. I mean I'm Fi mot at all, because I deliberately don'tthink about the consequences, but I can't get anyone else involved. Then Irealize that question is poitless. It enme, because I don't have a singlephone number on my head. Like I don't even know my own, I don't form myselfdo so what the Ido Mi, maybe I've, massed something, maybe there's moreinstructions in tha car or on a case something defferent from the damsbefore something I've messed. I pulld the case over in front of me. Ipretssuance the seeme Kase I've collected since the beginning. If noit's adantical it, it's dark. Rlearly ether, not really all ter fix stuff,were brass, finishing about four foot, long, two way handling a long side andone on the tops s. You can carry it both ways and a combination lockd theorpen, it's reasonably heavy, but you can carry it with one arm comfortablyas long as you swarp for Tate Tam, doesn't all headin compartments orother instructions attached Ta I can see. Then I got a for. You see the combination for the keycompartments on the door of the flats. His always been the same. All of the name. Tames previous havedone this onnineteen. Fifty four as I thank you, this all the heels inmy neck stand up in this electric shovel runs through me. What? If a CIF lite on the numbers on a newmedical display, one nine five. Four, then, with my thumbs I gently pushedthe two release: locks UPAR. The class Sprang Open. I set ind hot nausiestpulse tangles its way down from my head to my tors. I set there waiting for adepass. I don't open it straight away. I set there on the floor. Cross leggedthe unlocked case in front of me fill him every strange possibility. It's adance man, it's one of those moments, I'm not sure how long I'm sat at theend before I finally look inside, but it was a way a week. Tame went from being the only thingthat marteled tere being completely areelevant. It was Kana Transin DayAntal man and you to say to Al everything would change one way oranother, so it was important. I thought to be praisent. Part of me was waitingon frank to Y ascue. Me appeared at the door Boston en before I had the chance teKnol save me from whatever future res Ent sate. He didn't know he didn't know, and it got to the pointthat I stole for so long. The present was getting bored awaitn on me. I tooka deep breath close my eyes and left IU A led. I had that fold back and hit thefloor and open my eys again and looked down. I don't know what I expected to be inShate, but had a thought about it. The actual contents would have been prettyclose to my guess. Man, wells whs, going to be n at case likethis coudt lot less belon into a Galic Frank. It was never going to be a Tomborn. Was it the bulbof? The case was tollabi neatly Selaphine map bundles offefty Po nouts, like two thouds er I'd, never seen this amount of money beforein real Liefe, so I haven't at close to how much it was on the top. was three large vacuum packbags o weed good quality wet? I used to buy a lot of Weat, so I col goodstonals, I'm pretty much excellent at...

...estimating how much and how good, as Iglance and I would drating the ar about for to five ontes at least paor bag,sadly are looking at it for a moment. Then I closed the case scrambled in the medical lock and tryto absorb the moment. I know found myself and I'm shel fislate tin a flat with nomeans of contact in the outside world for an enddeterminate length of time. Ihave no supplies and I'm babysitting tha case, holding a substantial amountof dodgyn money and enough week to make cold placon like a decent blind waitingin a gang. So I don't know what to Tom up and the Medel of a global pandemic.I'll be honest: it's not used O Mekin Dat, magint man, ifanything nowing, the contents or thecase complicates things even more. I'm no less comfortable, even though it'sOrdin the flat and there's no way I'm going to be see no publicly walkingaround with Er. I'm also aware, I'm going to have to eat it's. No. Almostsix PM I've been here for almost twenty four dours and all I've had this waterat the top, and I really degreed in Shat, I'm getting angry at my powerlessness.I'm getting wound up and I got to rule myself and I'll segor it from a rapidlydiminishing Supplya te Bicle, and it says I'm doing that. I think I could really got a joint right now. Like I sait, I used to be a store, butI gave t up like six years ago after my Parannoi I got so bad accused an exawalking for the CIA, sad thingi, that's not even the Reasono Bro Cup. Also itwas getting the way of me playing man. I got relegiously an Aragi and it wasaffectin my relationship with the rest of the band, so I stopped stepped op mydrink in Te camp and see much more socially accaptable. However, Knowin that we is in the case-and I can't leave it's Al, I can think o out. It's not like I'm going to takea Lon just enough to make the TAME pastquackup. I mean I'll, tell FrankCaeda, I'm not going to be deash honest abouther I'll, tell him ye can take it. o e Syou, Goan he's the one who's got melocked in here I mean I mayt see that the case just outend, like I probablyWoun't.
