Year 2, week 7: threats

‘I’ve worked it out BabyB.  I may not be able to prove anything but it suddenly dawned on me yesterday evening after a few drinks.  You were the one that set me up with Ginny.  It’s wasn’t ThirdSix at all.  You sneaky, backstabbing, conniving…’

At which point he launched into an impressive tirade of unprintable abuse.  As if the pent up frustration of the last year had all fermented into a bitter reservoir of bile and suddenly the dam was bursting and it was all flooding out.  Not that I was going to give him the satisfaction of ’fessing up.

‘I don’t know what on earth you’re talking about TopFirst.  But if you think you’re going to be able to carry on squatting in chambers after spewing out this kind of abuse, you’ve got another thing coming.’

‘BabyB.  After this morning, you will never catch me setting foot in this hole ever again.  I’ve got myself a tenancy at a better chambers than this starting tomorrow.  Don’t know why I even wasted my time with such a bunch of intellectual losers in the first place.’

Then came his parting shot,

‘But remember, BabyB.  I might not be able to prove anything and maybe you even did me a favour for getting me out of here.  But I will never forget.  Nobody ever beats me at anything.  I tell you now that you need to watch your back.  I will beat you BabyB.’

With which he was gone.  Can’t say that it heartened me to have acquired a sworn enemy though I do have to admit that I have also enjoyed some our sparring so far.

    Aha! It had to happen, sooner or later.

    Hmmmmm… the setting for a showdown of the advocates? Now where would be a fitting venue … the Royal Courts of Justice perhaps or Huddersfield County Court 😉 … whichever it is, I’m sure we will not be disappointed.
