Cent sacs, mais je mettrai pas longtemps à me remonter. Marité, fille des rues ramassée par Grogembre aux limites de la prostitution à plein temps, était aussi femme sensée : — Écoute, dit-elle, dans trois jours, Grogembre touchera sa paie plus un rappel. Il me donne tout, c’est moi qui le fournis après en argent de poche. On lui sucre son fric et ça ira pour le début. L’idée enchanta beaucoup Marco. Puis il grimaça : — Seulement, j’ai pas envie de retourner dans un hôtel, ça finit par me flanquer les flubes de remplir des fiches-bidons.

Elle me tend la main. Je la prends. L’est toute moite, je me goure pas, elle en pince, la garce. Je retiens la pogne. Elle se défend pas et me zieute avec un drôle de sourire. Je te l’étends d’un seul coup d’un seul sur la table en Formica et je lui roule un palot monstre à moustaches, ceux qu’elles préfèrent. Elle me le rend en bavant un peu, c’est pas mal, c’est érotique, comme ils disent. C’est p't’ être un peu rapide, mais moi je suis comme ça, je tiens pas la distance, tout dans le sprint, au bout de trois minutes, l’affaire est faite.

Ta gueule, soûlard, écoute plutôt… François vient de sortir, ça serait le moment d’aller faire un tour chez lui. Bourbon-Tatin chaussa son gros nez d’une paire de lunettes cerclées de fer et parut réfléchir à la situation : — Il y a la petite Éliane, dit-il enfin. — À c’t’ âge-là, ça dort comme une souche, y’a pas de risques… — Il faudra revendre dès demain matin, alors, acquiesça le bonhomme, parce que quand François va s’en apercevoir, il est hors de doute qu’il poussera de hautes clameurs, sans préjudice des investigations outrancières qu’il ne manquera pas d’opérer.
