Part 16 - True Stories

Julian and a policeman are ending their conversation on the motorway....

Policeman

The policeman gets into his car simultaneously with Julian in his

Gerald

Julian
Yup. Thought I was drinking, obviously not, let me go Julian starts the engine and drives

Ritchie
You're like the worst liar on the planet


Julian
What you mean?

Ritchie
Gerald if you may...

Gerald
Thank you Ritchie. Exhibit A, notice the already observed quivering lips which was shown on numerous occassions during convo with the offic
er. They all nod in agreement Exhibit B, the throbbing vein in Ritchie's temple was also indication that he was fuming and Exhibit C is the more obvious deduction of words in a sentence. In conclusion, liar liar, pants are indeed on fire.

Nadine
So what happened Julian? talk to me. I did a module in Psychology for one term at Uni too. I can help

Julian
That's wonderful! I did a module for Business. It was called None of Ya! Ritchie laughs until Nadine looks at him

Gerald

Nadine

She's tending to her future kids. I'll get you some wine?

Jane
I'll have a Brandy and Coke, hold the Coke Michelle walks into the kitchen. Jane types a text on her phone "I miss you" and sends...

Nat and Michelle are mixing drinks when Natalie's phone rings

Kim

Natalie

Kim

Michelle
That's what happens in winter, make-ups and break-ups. Yet despite the cold season the sun's out....Metaphorical.

Natalie
Hmm, Evelyn needs to hurry up.

Across the road Evelyn has been told part of the secret by the Boy (Joshua)....

Evelyn
Are you serious?

Joshua
Yeah I saw them! I know I shouldnt be looking but I wanted to test out my new gadget. Anyway he jogged to the car but he dropped the packet of...

Evelyn
Medicine, medicine. I dont get it, they kissed and then he ran out? So where was the argument?

Joshua
No they were going upstairs but two women...A phone call interrupts the conversation

Evelyn
Ok Ok Im coming.

At the petrol station, the group are picking up essentials for the last hour of the trip....

Nadine

Gerald
Yep Ritchie looks at him I'm playing. She says he's with her sister so leave it at that. Do I sense sprung activity?

Ritchie
Behave. What's up Julian?

Julian
Two things; some guy kept beeping me on the motorway, Im surprised none of you heard it. Secondly there's a guy over there by the cereals they all look at a man in all black who looks suspicious and shaky He looks awfully dodgy

Julian's back is suddenly met by a gun. He turns his face to a man in a ski mask
