The reporter from The Goss caught up with Rufus as he was sitting on his own in the student union restaurant at lunchtime. It was 12.40, he'd just finished lunch. He wasn't usually accosted in the restaurant, except by coursemates, who tended to leave him to himself except when they were going out drinking. He was a bit too focused on his work during the day to make great conversation. In fact, he never made great conversation even when out drinking. He just got pissed!
The reporter was an extremely attractive, smartly dressed young woman. She immediately had his attention.
