It was now three weeks since the incident with Beth. Rational Rufus estimated that if Beth was going to report him, it would have happened earlier. Action now wouldn't be credible, particularly since she'd come to his room with wine.
However, other women were avoiding him, giving him odd looks. He suspected (correctly) that despite her 'promise', Beth told her best friend and it had spread, as gossip does. But what could they do? He would tough it out.
At least, Beth knew that he was not gay; that problem solved. But, despite her coolness, emotional Rufus really liked her.
