With Mac no longer in charge, Cat's vocal paralysis ceased. The screams then emanating from her tiny terraced house alerted all the neighbours. This screaming was not to be ignored. The screams of death.
Her neighbours either side got to her front door simultaneously. With one accord they opened it with one mighty combined kick. It shattered, but opened instantly. Hearing the screaming upstairs, they raced up to the bathroom. The sight of Cat, naked, tearing at her skin which was forming a scum on the pink, overflowing water made them both empty their stomachs.
Elsewhere, Rufus was coming home.
