After that encounter I’m sure we both felt better. Truth is a marvellously liberating thing.
Strange thing is I used to see him around the place with his troublesome mates patrolling the city centre and we would give each other a nod. No high fives but he had in effect become my protector - how weird is that? He was a good lad underneath and I knew it. One up for humanity! I’m pretty sure though that others only saw him as a threat. How wrong. The old saying ‘never judge a book by its cover’ has never been so true.

    Terrific postscript to a story that restores one’s faith in natural justice. Really excellent series.

    Not the blockbuster I had indicated I’m afraid.
    Just a short and sweet true story about one Rag Day.

    Well it did the track for me and even prompted another random drabble.

    How refreshing to read something positive about someone who appears, on the face of it, to be a yob, and someone else who took the time and had the understanding and intelligence to see beneath the appearance. Nice one Steve! :)
