Skin Deep #60


Rufus needed socialisation if he was to go unchallenged to find Marcus. The problem was that despite a high level of sophistication, the machine wasn’t strong on social or emotional intelligence. Being inhuman, it didn’t consider these. Therefore, the machine didn’t bother about instilling niceties, like washing, shaving, and other acceptable social behaviour in Rufus until it realised it needed to.

Sleeping rough, living rough, scavenging food appeared to be very effective behaviour in that it kept Rufus under the radar, as sleeping on the streets seemed to be so common.

Rufus stank! That alone would get him into trouble!
