Thought about it, you know,
but I didn't think
it was actually gonna, like
- So, you just remembered?
- Yeah. Yeah.
Stop trembling.
You look like a crackhead.
I can't help it.
This is insane.
We need to figure out
what we're gonna do.

We have to cover our tracks.
Change your clothes.

- Why have you got this?
Terry, why do you think
we've been coming here
every weekend for the last
I thought you were mentally ill.
What have I always said?
Oh, the criminal always returns
- to the scene of a crime.
- Exactly.
And now we're gonna give him
a taste of his own medicine
if all goes to plan and he's got
some of that shit with him.
Fuck. It's a lot, Bella.
It's been a lot though,
hasn't it?
So, you down
for the alliance or not?
Fuck yes.
The alliance is spicy, blud.
We shouldn't spud.
We're missing a member.
Hook. Line.
Sink him.
What exactly is the plan?
I just gotta see what pocket
he gets it from.
He's alone now.
I could just go up to him.
It is a good time. You sure?
- Yeah.
- Bella?
Survived it once.
- Make sure you're looking.
- Yeah, of course.
Because it's easier, innit,
to steal
if I can see
where he gets it from.
Oh. Cool.
Anything I can do?
Yes, actually.
How's your dancing?
How you doing?
Yeah, good.
What's your name?
It's Arabella. Yours?

I don't I don't
usually like loud places.
But on the weekend, it's like
- I'm a different person,
you know?
- Hmm. Hmm.
I think it's the, uh,
it's the midweek slog.
- By the time
it gets to Thursday
- Hmm.
I'm already out
looking to party.
Yeah, yeah.
I feel, like like, I, um
prefer quiet places,
but then, like,

Crouching tiger, hidden dragon.

- Fucking mad.
Fuck, it's mad.
Was it was it full?
I can't remember.
What's it matter?
He's gone.
Well, could he pass out
and end up, I don't know,
in an ambulance
or a police car?
- He could die for all I care.
- Yes! Fuck him.
He took my knickers off.
So he's got those with him,
which would be evidence.
You joking?
No. No.
Hey, David.
I'm talking to you, man.
- You can tell what happened.
- Mate, nothing, just nothing.
- What happened in the toilet?
- Mate, shut up.

I don't know, man.
Have you done this before?

Who are you calling?
Terry, I'm calling the police.
Who else am I gonna be calling
right now?
What for?
Some rape, bro. Remember?
They're not just gonna
arrest him
because you remember.
They need evidence.
So what do we do?
We can't just leave him.
I thought you had some kind
of plan.
No I don't have a
Why would I have a plan?
Uh, the criminal always returns
to the scene of a crime.
You know that. I thought you
were working on something.
Terry, I generally don't
do that, à la my career.
Had you not anticipated
a face-off?
Why have we been coming here
every weekend for the last few
Why have we been coming here?
Because I'm deranged, Terry,
you know that.
That's never up for discussion.
"Why am I here?"
Because I'm fixated on the past,
not a future in which
I'm reunited with my raper.
I made a plan.
- What?
- I've made a plan.
It's in a pretty good place.
We're going to orchestrate
a bump-in,
and then we're going
to put him in prison
for a very long time.
There's some things I wish
I could've done different.
But I'm here this time,
and I'm here to help.
Do you trust me?
The alliance is spicy, blud.
Now, it's going to involve
a lot of cocaine, okay?
- What?
- It'll keep you up.
I'm not sleepy.
- You will be.
- Why?
We've already spudded on it.
Just have to go along
with it now.
Can I have a little bump?
Let me have another bump.
A little bump, a little one,
a little bump?
Hey! Just a little bump,
a little one, little bump.
- Tiny little bump. Tiny bump.
- O Okay,

like you were drugged.

just the many different types
of rape.
Date rape,
spousal rape,
prison rape, payback rape,
rape by deception,
corrective rape.
I'm not used to people
letting me inside their homes,
let alone their bedrooms.
I'm not used to people
being nice to me.

- For example, why am I
allowed to sit on your bed?
It's n it's not

I was thinking
back to Italy
Remember that threesome I had?
I think they tricked me.
They literally tricked me.
And I feel a bit mugged off.
I might pop
into Theodora's group.
'Cause that ting was not kosher.
- Do you think she'd mind?
- Hmm?
I don't think she'd mind at all.
I think you two would probably
really get on.
Let's not go that far.
Um, what are you drinking?
- Me?
- Yeah.
- Me?
- Yes, what are you drinking?
Uh, gin & orange
Gin and tonic, thank you.

Were you, um, hoping
I'd creep out in the night?
I'm not gonna go
unless you tell me to.

That is such a loud bird.
I wonder where it's coming from.
What's on the menu
tonight, then?
You off to do
your bar watch thing?
I'm actually not going back,
I'm just chilling.
You know I don't go out much.

Hey guys,
thanks for coming.
Today, Arabella Essiedu's
second book,
January 22nd, is here.
- Finally.
- Yeah.
Her first book, Chronicles
of a Fed Up Millennial,
released online as a PDF,
captivated many
in its bold, frank,
and unflinching outlook.
Your new piece, January 22nd,
published independently,
is similar
to your previous work,
but in other ways feels like
it could be the work
of an entirely different writer.
You're gonna read us
the foreword now,
so I guess we'll just hear it.
Cool. Now?
Um, thanks for coming,
by the way.
