Jim Returns To The Cross

Remember Jim? The dude who was saved from the ledges of Kings Cross by the lovely Janet? Well, I bumped into Janet today and she told me that, sadly, Jim had lost the plot completely now and was back living in The Cross. I was shocked, but not altogether surprised.

I asked her to show me where he was. She said she would, but that I should be prepared because what I was about to witness wouldn’t be pleasant. Jesus Christ. She wasn’t wrong.

We found him hanging onto a crusty old ledge opposite the station with his feet all covered in shit. Just standing there he was, twitching a bit going, “There’s no place like home”.

Janet said he’d been like that for a while now.

That’s Janet on the left.

Jim was looking right at her but, judging by the lack of focus in the eyes, he clearly had no idea who she was.

“I can’t even look at him anymore”, she said. Tragic.

Then, it got a whole lot worse:

Suddenly, he opens his wings and goes, “Like a phoenix, I rise from the ashes! Rise phoenix, Rise!”, and throws himself off:

Janet could only sit and watch in despair.

Thankfully, the wings still worked and he remembered how to use them.

He returned to the exact same spot on the ledge, and just stared blankly at Janet looking as mad as a box of Frosties:

Think that was the moment Janet said she couldn’t take anymore. Fair enough.

On the basis of today, I have vowed never to visit Kings Cross again for fear it might be catching.
