Can I have twenties and tens, please?

You got a name?

Might have. Who's asking?

- It's me asking.

- Well, who's "me"?

No, you first. I took the initiative.

Well, I took it back

and I've got your money.

So are you asking for change

or do you want to know my name?

Gotta be the change then, really.

- Lily. My name's Lily.

- See you later, Lily.

Here's the breath.

Here's the breeze.

Here's the shimmer.

And I'm Alice

falling down the rabbit hole.

Are you with us'?

Get off. Get...

Let me out of here.

Are you OK?

- Where am I?

- Nearly home.

- Just leave me, I'll be fine.

- Come on, you're alright.

Nearly there.

Every time...

Every bloody time I get a date...

"some bastard calls an ambulance."

I could stay

and help clean you up, Lily.

Cheers.

Not like I'm short of practice, is it?

- You sure?

- Yeah.

Safe now.

Home, sleep, safe now.

When I was a kid, I used to

think I turned invisible during a fit,

like Houdini.

But I can't remember what happens.

An electric storm starts in my skull

and my brain just takes a detour.

The bright sparks scanned my head

for the first time when I was a baby.

I had this large lump

just behind my left ear.

That's where Mam chucked us

down the stairs when I was two

cos I wouldn't stop crying.

I wanted to be out there

in the cold wet sand

running with the kids

and screaming my head off.

Looking for a target to hit.

Something to dig

my nails and teeth info.

I drew my face and I was this giant

with the children in my mouth

and I was eating 'em up.

The little bastards kept on screaming.

I put it all down in my head book,

to help me remember.

To keep me safe.

I hope you're feeling better.

Yeah.

Anything you need, you know,

you just ask. OK?

Thanks, Al.

You see this?

It's yours.

Anytime.

No need to hurry back to work.

Hello?

Your mum passed away

peacefully, love.

I can't remember her face.

How am I gonna know it's her?

You'll remember, don't worry.

It comes to you.

Roll on, babe

Don't you roll so slow

When the wheel don't turn

You don't roll no more

I dreamt last night

Ole Lola was dead

I saw the apron string

All around her head

Roll on, babe

Don't you roll so slow

When the wheel don't turn

You don't roll no more

Fit-tastic spastic.

That's what the kids on the estate

called me.

Our Mikey picked 'em off, one by one.

- That's a bit fancy, innit?

- No way. Proper nice that is.

Barbara, have you seen Sharon?

My older brother Barry,

he used to tell everyone I was adopted.

HEY-

So go on then.

- What have I gotta do, Barry'?

- Who's that in the cat'?

Al. Like it's any of your business.

He's me boss. And a good, good mate.

He's here to protect my interests.

We should have done more

to help her, you know.

So anyway,

what's up with your hand?

Badge of honour, baby.

It's howl make a living.

- What, you do tattoos?

- Do I bloody heck.

Play poker. Live by the night.

Slick O'Connor. Thought you

might have heard of me.

Er, no. Sorry.

Look out! Bloody hell, Lily!

It's alright. Lily.

Mikey, look.

This is the Big Dipper.

I put them there.

Seven stars.

The one with the red's a red dwarf.

Don't you like it? What's wrong?

It's ace. Love it.

Mikey.

Right, hands on buzzers.

What would you do, Lily,

if you had money?

Never thought about it.

Well, think now. Think big, think fast.

I've worked it all out.

Intestacy rules state

we apply for administration

and we distribute the proceeds.

To who and what fucking proceeds?

This lot's worth shit.

To her next of kin. Us.

This luxury, four-bed fucking apartment
