But it's marked property, and the Street won't care that he found it by accident. And he can't give it back because the door to redemption is only open for 7 days. 7 days to exchange the mobile for cash. 7 days to cut the mobile's line rental to the Faces tracking his every move. 7 days to get out of a world where bling, ringtones and petty deaths are accessories of life. Schoolboy knows that when you're running hot all it takes is one call, one voicemail, one text to disconnect you from this life--permanently."@en ;
