Villains

"Gordon Chalfont, isn't it?"

Charlie 'The Squeeze' Mackay looked at his companion and winked. His large friend, Jimmy 'The Spike' McFallon nodded and grinned, displaying his mis-matched teeth. "I believe you owe our employer a substantial sum of money."

Gordon frowned. "You must be mistaken. I transferred the money to him thirty minutes ago."

"That's not what he told us yesterday," said Jimmy.

"Well he wouldn't have done, would he?" said Gordon. "I've just paid it now."

"Hold on a mo," Charlie pulled out a buzzing mobile. "I've just got to answer this. Entertain yourselves for a minute, would you."

Jimmy waited until Charlie was out of earshot and pulled his knife out. "Entertain yourself, he said. That means doing something that makes you smile." Much to Gordon's distress, what made Jimmy smile was to stick his knife into people.

Charlie returned a moment later. "That was the boss, Jimmy. He says not to off Mister Chal... never mind."

Jimmy's an unlikable person. You wanted villains; I believe you've got one.

Very funny piece though. :)

Yes! Jimmy may well be a reoccurring sideline character.
