Rufus wondered why the old man selected him, the one who’d started the fight on his doorstep. It seemed odd, making him slightly concerned.

“A bit weird.“ he thought. “What if he’s a total pervert, a kiddie-fiddler or wants me to beat him up! Blimey, if that’s his game then he’ll wait a long time! He looks like one smack and he’d be dead!”

“But the money’s great... Might not stay here, although it’s miles better than home.”

“Go get your kit and we’ll see what you’re made of this afternoon. And maybe a little something on account... ”

    Congrats, Neville! Yeah, but we've still got a long way to go to catch Drew! He's been laying low for a while, though, so we've been able to gain a little ground.

    Thanks, Christopher. Yes, Drew is a drabble machine, and he's following so many others, so he has his work cut out! I told him he is the Drabblemeister. He was pleased but thought he didn't deserve it. I disagreed!
