if you actually seen it.

I left my bag behind, before.

Your mum is going kill me

if she finds out how we got lost.

Come on.

Where did you leave it?

This is where I last had it.

But we only in here

minutes ago, so where is it?

I'm sure this is

where I last had my bag.


You must have

left it back in the shop

we visited earlier.

Come on.

Come on!

Your mum

will be here soon!

I won't be able to see you

next week if we are late again.


All right, its okay!

Why can't you just be

like everyone elses dad?

Hey look!

We are not going to find

your bag, are we?

Why don't you show me

where I can buy one just like you.


Its okay.

You don't have to.

Just show me, will you?

Who taught you to punch like

that anyway, Ricky Hatton?

That one.

You don't

have to you know.

It's okay.

No, I want it!

I'm your dad.

I get some money

from the cashpoint.

It won't be a minute.

Well, I don't want to wait here.

You just wait there.

And hold the bag.

I go get the money.

Its the last one.

You make sure

no one buys it.

You sleep here?


You make it worse.

Go away!

Where does it hurts?

Can you wiggle your toes?


Show me

moving your ankle.

I don't think

It's probably

just a bad spraining.

Lucky your head

is not marked up.

Let see if

you can stand on it.

Why didn't you tell me?

I thought you disown me.

I didn't want you

to see me like that.

I meant to be

your dad.

You are my dad.


Come on peg leg.

Lets get you

back to your mum.
