I expect you help to work the betting machine or something like that.
That's even sillier
The driver was driving up to London and passed by a hitchhiker which he then gave him a ride.
Or perhaps your house is on fire and you're dashing home to rescue the family from upstairs.
The hitchhiker has a small-ratty face, his eyes were dark and quick and clever, like rat's eye. His ears were slightly pointed to the top. He tried to question the hitchhiker to learn more about him and learns that he was going to the races.
You mean you took it off me while we've been driving along?
They were talking about their jobs and the hitchhiker then challenge the driver to speed, however while he was speeding he got caught by a police officer.
I'm a fingersmith. I'm a professional fingersmith.
They were warned for speeding by the police officer, he took their details down on a book. The driver became suspicious of the hitchhiker when he lied to the police officer.
My house isn't on fire, officer.
The hitchhiker then said that there's more than what he saw after being questioned, he then performed a trick in which he was able to get the driver's items without him realising or having any feeling.
The hitchhiker finally reveals his identity and also told the driver how he took the book from the police officer without the officer realising which made the driver excited and relieved.
