Skin Deep #112


While he stayed at his mum's house, Rufus's behaviour went through a transformation. He became a 'nice young man' to his mum's friends and neighbours, explaining his absence as staying with a cousin while his parents sorted out their problems. It was plausible.

With September round the corner, Rufus's mother reminded him he had a place at university, so he'd better get on and organise his student loan.

Rufus couldn't believe his luck and made preparations for his move up north and away from any suspicion.

Arriving there, he asked to switch course from mechanical engineering to computer cybernetics. Agreed.
