‘What did I tell you, Alex?’

‘Just leave it, will you. I need a beer.’

‘You need your head tested. 30K! Have you any idea what favours I had to pull to raise that.’

‘I’ll pay you back.’

‘The state will pay me back when you go to prison. It’s bail money, not a fine.’

‘I’m not going to prison.’

‘See, this is what I mean. Dumb. Of course you’re going. I’m sick of telling you: if you’re dumb about the crime, you’ll do the time.’

‘I’m not dumb, okay.’

‘Then why the hell are you going to prison then?’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

I really like the back-and-forth here, Rob. I can definitely see this as part of a longer story.
