Example text

Je démarre sous son nez, pour éviter d’être entraîné, il se rejette en arrière, bute contre le trottoir et s’étale contre une poubelle qui se renverse sur lui. — Son état naturel, je dis ; non mais, il attige avec ses histoires de braquage, tu le vois, toi, en train de faucher cent briques ! — C’est cent briques qu’il y a ? demande Bus en remuant le nez. C’est une somme, Lumignon, tu parles d’une chouette troupe qu’on pourrait remonter. — Ah non, clancul, tu vas t’y mettre, toi aussi aux gamberges mythomanes !

Que non. Ça compliquait les recherches, on pouvait aussi bien avoir fourré le mini-macch’ pendant la représentation qu’avant. Il paraissait, ce nimbus, plutôt cossu, sapé rider et les ongles propres. Elle le connaissait rigoureusement pas, la charmante, et à sa mine, je pigeais qu’elle trouvait ça d’un goût déplorable de se trouver nain et le cou tranché, dans le coffre d’une jeune fille à qui on a pas été présenté. — Qu’est-ce qu’on va en faire ? elle a demandé, on va pas le laisser là cent sept ans ?

J’espère que notre défunt ami va pas s’accrocher là. Il suffira de bien le lancer. J’ôte le plaid qui l’entoure et prends dans notre voiture une tenture dont le plus malin des flics ne pourra trouver l’origine. Je saucissonne, aidé par Bus tandis que la gonfle nauséabonde tâtonne à la recherche d’énormes cailloux. J’ai toujours, dans la ruine, un rouleau de fil de fer pour réparer soit une aile qui tombe en digue-digue, soit pour retenir le moteur qui a une fâcheuse tendance à se tirer des adjas, sans doute dégoûté par cette carrosserie crapoteuse.
