A black Ford Escort waited outside the guest house as Robin came out with two huge men.

Hi Johnny, meet two friends of mine; this is Mel Gunn; and this is Ali Scurr both of them are 7th Dan judo experts. Both wore black suits, white shirts black clip on ties and highly polished shoes. Robin wore a black long cashmere coat, white shirt, black tie, and black shoes. They were both around six feet five inches tall and must have weighed about twenty stones each.

“I see you have been spending a few quid.”

“Shut up and drive Johnny.”

“So where did you meet Robin asked Johnny to the two men in the back who completely ignored the driver.

“When you get to the town Johnny; I want you to ring Ronnie Skinner and tell him there has been a change of plan. “ I will meet him in the Hotspur on my turf not his.”

“As you like boss said Johnny which made Ronnie smile.”

Robin kept turning a gold ring on his finger that he had picked out from the heist. It had two unicorns up on their hind legs. It was twenty four carat gold and must have weighed at least half an ounce.

Johnny dropped them at the Hotspur then parked the car.

The manager came out and shook Robin’s hand.

“I’ve got the room in the back ready if you want to come through Rob.”

The big men went through first and Robin followed them.

Behind the curtain was a round table with four chairs. The two judo men stood either side of Robin as he sat down at the card table.

Johnny was about to sit down and Robin stopped him.

“You stand over there and I will call you if I need you.”

“Alright boss said Johnny as he got up nervously and went into the corner of the room like a naughty school boy who had just been spanked.

“Robin called Danny Gosling in and asked him to bring a phone Robin had done a bit of bird with Danny in Durham jail and Robin had done him a few favours.

Danny brought the phone left it in the middle of the table then winked at Robin then left the room.

“Right Johnny ring Skinner and tell him to meet me here.”

Johnny came over then lent over the table then dialled the number that Ronnie skinner had given him.

“When someone answered, he just relayed the message then hung up.

Johnny returned to his place and tried to look hard but inside he was bricking it.

It was some twenty minutes later when Ronnie showed up in a Jaguar with two men. They walked in as if they owned the place and asked where Robin McNally was.

“Come with me said Danny Gosling as he led the men into the darkened room.

“Okay now I’m here what do you want?”

“Why don’t you sit down and we can talk.”

“Alright I’m sitting what is it you want?
