With nothing to smoke his Stress(Bad) Weed with, Hank went next door to the Liquor Store. Hank walked back to the Cafe, he reached for the door and saw a guy with a Ski Mask holding a Shotgun. The Bartender was putting money into a bag from the cash register, another guy with a Ski Mask was holding a handgun and a Bag. The People in the Cafe were putting their valuables into the Bag. Hank ran from the Cafe, looking for help. Hank ran down the street and saw an Electronics Store, he ran inside. Hank was able to catch his breath and tell the Woman behind the counter the situation in the Cafe. As She got on the phone to call the Police, Hank walked over to one of the Flat Screen TV’s and changed the channel. He found the movie “Taken“, he watched Liam Neeson fight. The girl behind the counter, yelled something at Hank but he ignored her and watched the TV. Once the fight scene was over, Hank left the electronic store and ran back to the Cafe. Hank stood outside the door of the Cafe and looked inside, the Robber with the Shotgun was holding it to a Woman’s head. Hank put a scarf over his mouth and walked inside. The Robber with the Shotgun saw Hank walk through the cafe door. He pointed the Shotgun at Hank. “What are you doing Zorro?” said the Robber with the Handgun. The Shotgun was pointing at Hank’s head. “This!” Hank said, as he grabed the barrel of the Shotgun, with the Stock of the Shotgun he hit the Robber on the head and punched him across the Chin, he fell to the ground. His partner fired his gun at Hank but missed by 5 cm’s. Hank pumped the Shotgun and pointed it at the Robber, he dropped his gun and Hank picked it up. The blasting sound of Police Sirens could be heard down the street. Hank removed the magazine from the gun, gave it and the shotgun to the manger. “Hey, is there another way out?” Hank asked the manager as the people in the Bar ran screaming out the front door. The manger showed Hank to a cellar that lead him to a back alley exit.
The Hostages swear they were saved by the Canadian Zorro(The Nickname they gave Hank).
Hank quickly made his way towards the Cafe the Hotel Bartender told him about. Only a few blocks away from his destination, Hank’s plan was successful. Another homeless man stopped Hank to offer him weed, this time Hank was 100% sober and would not be fooled twice by grifting Homeless. Hank asked to see the bag of weed 1st, before any money would be exchanged. The Homeless Man pulled a Dime bag from his pocked and it was stuffed with Marijuana shake. If Hank’s dealer at home offered him the same bag of Weed, Hank would be looking for a new Dealer. Hank was desperate, he sniffed the bag to confirm it was Weed and paid $10(Canadian) for it. At the very least some of Hank’s faith in Homeless Canadian Pot Dealers was restored.
With more pep in his step, Hank walked the last 100 yards to the Cafe. The sign above the Cafe just read ‘Cafe’, before entering on the door there was a sign that read; “Rules of the Cafe. 1. No camera’s of Any KIND! 2. Don’t ask for POT(You smoke what you brought in). 3. Don’t Be a Dick.
Once inside there was a bigger sign with the same rules, Hank didn’t notice the sign because he was distracted by the strong Weed smell coming from the people smoking. Hank had been to Amsterdam a few years back but he had never seen anything like this in Canada. The place was half full and Hank found an empty table to sit at, Hank took out his Dime bag of weed and quickly realized he had nothing to smoke with.
Hank watched the Homeless Guy go into the Apartment Building he said the Weed Dealer lived in. Hank looked at his Watch, it’s been 15 minutes and no Homeless Guy. After 30 mins Hank decided to look inside the Fanny Pack, he unzipped the pack and looked inside. Inside the Fanny Pack was; a softcover copy of Sidney Sheldon’s ‘Master of The Game'(Hank had seen the made for TV movie.) and an empty bottle of Tylenol. This shit was worthless to Hank, his buzz from the Hotel Bar was gone, he was annoyed by the situation and worst of all, Hank really wanted the Weed. Hank grew angrier when he remembered meeting the Homeless Guy by the dumpster. The Homeless Guy pulled something(the fanny Pack) from the Dumpster and Hank just paid $10 for it. Waisting no more time waiting on the street corner, Hank was off to find Weed.
The Bartender at the Hotel Bar told Hank he can smoke Weed at a Cafe downtown, the only problem they don’t sell it at the Cafe. Hank knew his best chance of finding Weed would be to near or at the Cafe.
Hank stepped off the bus, it was his first time in Vancouver, Canada. The bus ride was 20 mins and for the last 15 Hank needed to pee, his Bladder was at maximum capacity. Before he got on the bus Hank was drinking at the hotel bar, after three beers Hank decided to get on the next bus to downtown Vancouver. The Bartender told Hank where to catch the bus, he paid for drinks, left a good tip and walked out of the bar to catch the next bus. Hank had a nice buzz on the bus but couldn’t enjoy it because he felt his Bladder was going to burst(Most likely he would’ve pissed himself, again). Hank and his Bladder made it to the stop.
HanK stepped off the bus, looked for a bar or coffee shop but it was just office buildings and apartments. Hank started to panic because he felt the pee about to escape like Old Faithful, he looked for a place on the street to pee. He walked half a block and saw an alley with dumpsters. Hank is from New York, NY and knows that next to a dumpster is a great place to pee. Hank decided to pee in-between two dumpsters. Hank let the pee free like he was a Firefighter using the Firehose to save his own house. After the last drip had dropped, Hank noticed a Homeless Guy digging through one of the dumpsters Hank peed near. Hank was a little embarrassed but not surprised. The homeless guy waited for Hank to finish before he asked him where he was from. Hank told him he was from New York. The Homeless Guy asked Hank if he wanted Weed, and of course Hank said Yes. The Homeless Guy told him he could get him a bag of Weed for $10. (This was Canadian Money and Hank treated it like it was Monopoly money because of all the colors.) It was Hanks first time in Vancouver but not his first trip to Canada. Hank had been to Montreal hundreds of times and bought weed from Homeless People on the street. Hank followed the guy a few blocks when they stopped on a street corner near an Apartment building. The Homeless guy pointed to a building and said the dealer lives there, he told Hank he couldn’t go into the building. The Homeless Guy told him to wait here on the corner and he would go inside to get him the bag of Weed. Hank agreed to give him the $10 and for collateral the Homeless Guy gave Hank his fanny pack which felt heavy. The Homeless Guy took the $10 told Hank he be back in 5 mins with his Weed, he walked into the building….
