The Lottery Killer
George Lovechild had swapped from drinking beer to shorts. He was on his fifth brandy
and was trying to get hold of John. He had run out of texts on his phone and had run down
to the cash point. His account was way overdrawn and his request for fifty quid had been
rejected, as were all the others for smaller amounts down to a tenner. So instead George tried
his local shopkeeper to get another load of credit. He had tried explaining to Mr Patel that he and
John had won the lottery and he was good for the money, but Mr Patel had refused. George had
pleaded with him but the shopkeeper remained firm and turned him away. George had mumbled
something like "you'll regret this" as he'd stormed out the shop.
