Skin Deep #62


While the machine embarked upon socialising Rufus, Marcus continued to be held at controlled temperature, awaiting the time when any relatives he might have could give him a proper send off. This meant that his tissue would not undergo any further deterioration. It’s not that unusual these days for a body to be kept for weeks, even months, before interment.

Meanwhile, The Goss was exploiting the search it had initiated for Marcus’s relatives. It was working with ‘heir hunters’ and an online ancestry business. It was win-win-win for the newspaper and the circulation was going up-up-up.
