Skin Deep #54


Rufus’s parents were engrossed in their own squabbles and didn’t really give him much thought. He joined the ranks of missing youths. The source of Rufus’s anger was clear to his mother when his father beat her up so badly that she was hospitalised. The marriage failed.

Two young friends volunteered information to the police, but it sounded so unlikely that they weren’t believed. They’d been very lucky getting beaten up that day!

No-one came forward to claim Marcus. A national newspaper volunteered to fund keeping him in refrigeration while they sought his relatives. This was maybe a mistake.

    That was definitely a mistake! That old bastard is tough!
