85. Gangster Girl

Pontoon becomes a regular haunt.
Between 2013 – 2016 I’m there practically every night.
I’m a regular.
They give me a V.I.P pass.
I know the security.
One’s even a Christian.
I see Pontoon as my mission field.
Many of the girls are sex workers.
Im not there to fuk the girls, like most of the men.
Im there to meet the girls.
Do my missionary thing.
It’s where I meet Timothy.
Timothy’s South African.
From some slum.
Cape Town.
He’s cool as fuk.
Rolling in cash.
On some football gig or something.
He talks in an English, almost London accent.
He reminds me of the Yardies I knew when I ran my mobile phone shop back in Clapham Junction, London.
Where I use to swap a Sony Ericsson charger for a bag of weed.
Where I first got into ‘e’ s.
It’s sort of a London accent, but when he’s with his pals he can go into deep African – almost Nigerian.
For some reason we connect.
Then I meet Gangster Girl.
Timothy and his girl and me and Gangster Girl, we go to some hotel room and party.
Timothy, he plays me some profound rap about a gangland initiation where a boy rapes his own mother.
I’ll never forget that rap.
I had my own gangland initiation, in London.
With a gang of vigilantes.
I wrote a story about it.
Man or Mouse.
It won a prize.
Got optioned as a movie.
Timothy likes his coke.
I hadn’t smelt burning coke in 25 years.
I fall for Gangster Girl.
Khmer. Cute. Sexy. Feisty.
Maybe she’s the one.
