Its true boss he’s lyin’.

You sure he knows?

Oh he knows boss.

How can you be sure?

He’s got a map.

How do you know it’s THE map?

It’s got a cross on it.

A cross?

Yes an X marks the spot.

Oh so Lenny you have a map?

Don’t know nothin’ ‘bout nothin’.

Lenny you’ll soon be without a leg to stand on.

You mangy varmints ain’t getting’ nothin’ from me.

But Lenny you have what I want.

Do ya worst.

You don’t wanna tempt me Lenny. You have more than one leg, two arms and other bits that I doubt you’d miss.

Not the magic bits, don’t touch the magic bits.

These bits?

No! No! I’ll tell you anything. Please don’t touch the magic bits.

The map?

In my other boot.

Well it looks like a map.

What’s it say boss?

Alphie did you see this map before?

Yes boss I was telling about the X.

This X here?

Yes that’s the one. We gonna be rich boss?

You idiot, this X stands for a rail way crossing.


What is this map Lenny?

Me mum gave it to me so I’d know me way home.

    LOL I could hear three distinct voices as I read this. The Boss – slightly posh. Alfie – a bit whiny. Lennie – I could hear a bit of Cockney there. You and Andree both done good 😀
