Skin Deep #199


Amy was ruthless too. Three days later her profile on Rufus appeared on pages 2 and 3 of The Goss. Her first person narrative gave great power to the piece. Her searching article covered his academic brilliance together with his violent upbringing at the hands of his father and neglect by a mother living in fear and yet unable or unprepared to do anything about it.

Amy juxtaposed this with 'Despite being crushed in youth, I detected a latent brutalism in this young man.' Referencing his father's violent, suspicious death, she added 'Rufus had every reason to want him dead!'
