The guardian angel

PHILIP
“Hey Tony. Can I ask you to come up to Alternative Grounds ?  There’s this guy in there, he bothering the customers, ranting at them sticking his face in their faces, that sort of thing. I figure you’ll probably know him; he’s about 5′ 6, he’s got a grayish beard, his fly is undone, his clothes are dirty, and he claims to be French Canadian. I just don’t know about him.”

TONY
“Oh yeah, I know him alright. If he’s the guy I think he is, he’ll be looking to swipe their tip jar too. I’ll come up and watch him so he doesn’t get any ideas, if you know what I mean.”

PHILIP
“Thanks Tony. I think everyone will feel safer with you in there.”

TONY
“Damn right. They should.”

    Tony watches out for everyone Roncy. He’s the eyes and ears of that street.
