Skin Deep #118

by

His classmates were quickly in awe of him. Although slightly against his natural inclinations, he decided he would actively support his peers. The tutors quickly realised they could use him as a resource in class, a kind of knowledgeable assistant with whom the other students would identify. If ever there was a First Class Honours student in the making, it seemed to be Rufus.

Despite being a drinker with the lads, Rufus kept his nose clean. It was a struggle at times if a drinking mate said something out of turn...

But Mac kept him on the straight and narrow.

    Without wishing to give anything away, and although it sounds extremely immodest of me, the other day I read the last 20 or 30 ‘chapters’ of Skin Deep again and at one point it actually had me in tears. That took me totally by surprise because I had written the thing... but hadn’t read it through for a while. As they say, I’m just a ‘big girl’s blouse’ at heart!
