Fawkes in the road #3


...“Hmmmmph! Oh... alright then, 50p, but you’ll have to give me 50p change for this pound.”

“And where do you think a little girl of six like me is going to get 50p for change?”

“I couldn’t possibly imagine! Oh go on then, here’s a quid.”

“Cooo, thanks mister. See you next year. I’ll be seven. It’ll cost you a fiver then!”

The man walked on and the girl followed him.

“You’re not getting any more money from me” he said as she caught up with him. “And why aren’t you looking after your 'Guy'?

“Who said it was mine?”

    I really enjoyed the ending (totally unexpected) but what really got me was where do you think a girl of six is going to get 50p. A genius line!

    This little chickie needs to be shilling for the government. She could con people out of enough money to get the budgets balanced in no time!

    Wonderful read, Neville.
