Faudra faire vite, souffle Micro, de la porte à leur bagnole, ils mettent à peine dix secondes. Le plus duraille à mon avis, c’est de pouvoir s’approcher sans être repérés. Vu que le parking est désert, c’est drôlement coton et il n’y a pas beaucoup d’angles morts où se planquouzer. La mallette est chargée par-derrière, porte cadenassée au solidos à ce qu’il paraît ; les deux convoyeurs s’installent à l’avant, Môssieur Cocigrue leur fait de la main un signe protecteur et Das Kapital s’en va, sous la garde vigilante des molosses prolétaires et cacochymes.

Je suis pour lui catalogué, pas un gentlemane, avec mon costard élimé, mes pompes à ouverture spontanée, ma liquette terne et froissée, je marque plutôt mal sur sa moquette. Mais je suis pas d’humeur à batifoler avec un larbin, j’ai envie de toucher mon dû, pour briffer et ensuite aller me pieuter rapidos. Il doit remarquer ma mine sombre car il ne bronche pas quand je le bouscule un peu pour franchir le seuil de la porte. — « Monsieur » désire voir votre patron, espèce d’ancillaire, « monsieur » s’appelle Luc Michon, il est artiste de variétés et directeur de la troupe « les trois Badours » à qui votre monsieur de patron doit quelque argent.

Deux ballons éclatent puis un troisième, alors que je n’ai pas tiré. — Cornedieu, je rage, encore enrayée cette foutue mécanique. Je retire le chargeur : une des balles à blanc est montée de travers. Bus sort de derrière sa planche, une longue aiguille à la main. — C’est malin, je dis, tu vois pas que ça nous arrive en pleine représentation ! Attends le coup de feu pour enfoncer l’aiguille. On continue le numéro, cette fois sans bavures. Tout truqué bien sûr, les fils qui partent du rade libèrent un petit ressort qui frappe les verres et les fait s’écrouler, à peine recollés qu’ils sont, la cigarette est en deux tronçons qu’un coup de langue sur une tige fait séparer, la pièce de monnaie trouée, un coup de manipulation de Micro et ainsi de suite.
