Michael and Johnny took a taxi to Las Americas where they past several night clubs that were open including the Beach Club, Yates bar, Luna Blanca, but what caught Michaels eye was one called the “Brewers droop.”

“Come on we will give this a go.”

The club was no different to most of the night spots leather seating and sparkling lights the stage had a comic on as Michael an Johnny went to the bar and bought two bottles of beer each then sat down. The club was starting to fill up so Michael figured that this place must be quite popular with the punters.

It didn’t take Michael long to get the attention of two young ladies. Who must have thought him a rock star with his shoulder length hair?

He asked the girls to sit with him and they both sat next to Michael and Johnny winked at Johnny then asked him to get the girls a drink.

Johnny disappeared then came back with two bottles of beer each.

The conversation batted back and forth until a guy walked up and said that there was someone who wanted to speak with him.

“Well ask him to come over said Michael.”

“The gentleman owns the club sir he has asked me to ask you to join him for drinks.”

“Please bring your guests with you.”

“Michael looked at Johnny suspiciously then they both got up and followed the little Spaniard to a table in the corner. Michael could make out who was sitting there until he approached the table.”

Michael my friend; please take a seat; Do you like my night club?

“Ronnie Skinner; you like horse manure, you get all over the place.”

“This is only one of five clubs that I have in Playa Las Americas.” It gets full every night.”

“You must be raking it in.”

“We do all right; the punters come in mainly for the girls though.”

“Come on Ronnie I’m not that daft.”

“You’re dealing in coke and Marijuana here.” I could smell it at the bar when I came in.”

“Well you have to make a living some how.”

“Ronnie told the two girls to disappear for half an hour.”

“You know them?

“They work for me Michael.”

“So they were prostitutes;

“Yes and they get well paid for it too; which I get a percentage of.


“You know that favour that I did you a couple of years ago?

“Yes and you were paid; right?

“Yes; well I want you to day me a favour when you go back.”

“What kind of a favour?
