Skin Deep #179


Cat was pronounced dead at 02.05. Root cause unknown, except for a massive stroke, probably brought on by her self-inflicted skin war. Police couldn't establish why she'd clawed the skin off her body, because she wasn't coherent due to heavy sedation.

It was a mystery how and why it had happened.

Remarkably, Phil survived the ordeal. A feint pulse, but he was comatose. It would be a waiting game.

"Shagged the old girl to death I reckon", said the lightfingered PC, fingering Mac in his pocket.

Rufus gleaned the gossip later, incognito, at the hospital.

Phil must never wake!
