Over-Scene #2 – The Naggin

by Brendan Strong

“You can pull that hood over as much as you like. I still want to see some ID.”
“Wha’?”
“ID”
“Here”
“Hmm. It’s fake”
“It’s fuckin’ no’, I’m nineteen, I am”
“No, not the ID, you tool. The money.”
“The wha’? You’re having me on. Here, give it back”
“No, I have to keep it. Send it into the coppers.”
“Wha? Send it wha’? Bollocks. You’re only trying to nick me fiver, you wanker!”
“No, it’s the law, you fool. I’ve to hand it into the coppers. It’s fake. You can hang around if you want while I call them. Let them know you gave me it… Thought not. Fucking tool!”

“I see you Johnny, but I don’t see a naggin!”
“Don’t start. You won’t believe…”
“You’re fuckin’ right I won’t. You’re full of shit. There’s no naggin is there?”
“The money… it was fake…”
“Yeah, like the naggin.”
“No, I was on me way to get it when I texted ye. When I got in there, yer man says it’s fake, and he takes it off me”
“He took it off you? He had you on, you fuckin’ eejit”
“No, he has to call the coppers to report it. The money I mean.”
“So there’s no naggin”
“No”
“So I’m going home”
“Aw, c’mon. We’ll scam another fiver.”
“You already stole that from two homelss eejits. There’s no chance. And if it was fake, what does that say?”
“Fer fuck’s sake.”
“My thoughts exactly”
“Wha?”
