Year 2, week 18: he’s back

I’ve been putting off getting back to TheBoss for the last few weeks but today I could do it no longer as he got through to me on the phone in chambers. “So what do you say BabyB. Are we going to work together?”

Now I know that it’s a risk getting involved with TheBoss in any way and this is particularly so when there’s every reason to suspect that TopFirst may well have contacted him in the last few months.  However, despite this, I figure that for the moment it’s probably best to keep your enemies close by. Besides which, I have absolutely no doubt that he could make us both a packet from bringing in the old people’s claims. So I eventually answered: “I think we might be able to work together. But before we do, I need some kind of guarantee from you.”
“Oh, come on BabyB. After all we’ve been through?”
“That’s exactly why I want such a guarantee.”
“And what exactly did you have in mind?”

Well, although I was trying to sound all confident and cool about the whole thing, I had absolutely no idea what sort of guarantee might be appropriate. “One hundred thousand pounds to be held by ClichéClanger and paid to me in the event of any dirty business.”
“BabyB, you’ve got to start setting your sights a little higher. That’s just a few settlements worth. Anyway, you’re on.”

    Leave the Boss alone, he’s bad news. One day you will be caught and your shenanigans will be exposed. It happens to the best of them. Quit while you’re ahead!… *wringing my hands*
