Skin Deep #159


The train from Leeds to London is fast, but Rufus broke his journey in Peterborough, walked the short distance to the cathedral, putting the contents of his rucksack, bag by bag into rubbish bins before walking back and catching the next train to London Kings Cross.

In London, with empty rucksack and very full suitcase he took the underground to his mother's house, arriving well before her, surprised her, and told her he'd arrived much earlier while she was at work.

She lent him her car to go see his best friend...

...but it was rubbish skips he visited first.

    Platform 9 3/4 would have been the best escape at Kings Cross!
