I don't believe you've done a good job of handling the premise. There is a fair chunk of exposition where he explains his life story to whatshername... not to mention the story sounds real. If he's scamming her, it isn't wise to mention being a professional gambler. He should make himself out to be more of a mark... a lucky lottery winner for example.

Written fairly well. Verbose in parts and some exposition poorly delivered.

Watch out for things like 'sits down', you only need 'sits'.

There were two bits where I laughed out loud.

The barman asking if Cedric is stupid and his conversation with the customer.

However, the actual story needs work. Perhaps it would be better if we didn't know Cedric wasn't a big shot until he gets on the bus so we know as much as the main character.
