“I’m telling you three is not enough. Time’s have changed, things are a lot more expensive these days. It’s got to be four at least.

“Trust me Jimmy you don’t want to know. Now finish you’re drink and we’ll be off.”
As Jimmy finished his pint Billy sent a quick text to Jimmy’s wife, ‘I’m on my way. Soon be just the two of us.’
