The night was as cold as a shop soiled spinster. Duncan’s glasses steamed up as soon as he pushed his way into the sweltering kebab shop, the smell almost suffocating.
"Alright, Donkey,"said Charlie, pushing his thick horn rimmed glasses back up his greasy nose. Duncan reached under his coat and pulled out a sawn of shotgun that immediately exploded, as did most of Charlies’s face.
The customers scattered like frightened birds apart from an old man who stood frozen to the spot a, dew drop dangling from his nose.
"Why?" he asked. "Why?"
"He aw, he aw, he aw – he always c-c- calls me f –f- fuckin’ d- d- donkey," said Duncan as the sound of the police sirens grew into a scream.
