I lunged to get a hold of his throat, but he held me at bay like a leaky bin bag. He didn’t hit back. He already looked badly over it. But Craig appeared over his shoulder, right on time. I don’t know how long he’d been watching us. I know him, though. ’ Craig asked, shaking his head. Lips still curled in an amused smile. ‘You too, Craig. ’ Smile didn’t go anywhere. Cruel motherfucker. The fight was all out of me anyway, but Scarface pulled me off Frank, started waving his finger at me. Doing the bouncer thing.

I just…’ ‘Forget it,’ he said. ’ ‘That’s how it is,’ he said, with an exasperated sigh.
