I thought there was something about him that I didn’t like. We have to get this bastard sorted Billy.’ I want you to get the lads together whilst I go and see how Jeff is doing.’

Mickey took the stairs until he reached ward five where the reception told him where they were treating Jeff who had a broken jaw and four broken ribs. When Mickey saw Jeff he tightened his jaw muscles in anger. Jeff was all wired up and they were giving him a drink through a straw.

“Can I speak with my friend for a few moments privately?’

“Well the police have just left and we do not want to tax this man too much; he has not long come out of surgery.’

“I promise not to keep him long nurse; he assured her as he pulled up a chair and sat beside the bed.

Mickey waited until the nurse had disappeared before asking Jeff if this had to do with Nigel Worthington.

“Jeff couldn’t speak but he was able to nod. Mickey picked up the writing pad and pen from the top of the locker.

“Write down his address for me Jeff.

“Jeff took hold of the pad and wrote: DON’T GET INVOLVED; HE IS DANGEROUS.;

“Don’t worry about that; just write down the address before the nurse comes and chucks me out.

Jeff printed the address on the paper then handed it back to Mickey who took a look at it then scrumpled it up.

“How much are you into him for?

Jeff wrote the figure then passed it to Mickey.

“Ten grand, Christ Jeff, how did this happen?

Jeff wrote something again then passed it over.

I HAD TO COLLECT A PACKAGE; I GOT JUMPED; THEY STOLE THE PACKAGE AND WORTHINGTON SAID I OWED HIM BIG STYLE. HE WANTED ME TO DO A JOB FOR HIM. HE WANTED ME TO BUMP SOMEONE OFF. WHEN REFUSED HE GOT HIS HEAVIES TO DO THIS TO ME.

“Leave this to me Jeff, I will get this sorted.’

Mickey told him to get well soon as he replaced the chair then left the ward.’

“One outside Billy and all the lads from the gym were waiting outside the hospital.

Fergie had his own car so four of the lads were already inside.

“Follow me said Mickey as he jumped into the car; Isaac, Albert Robinson, Gordon Paris and his brother Bill got into the car and Mickey revved the engine then sped away.
