"Can I help you?" asked Tony, a touch lasciviously. He was eyeing Rufus up and down. Rufus pretended not to notice. He was on a mission and was prepared to play along with this man, however he appeared.
"Hi there. I'm Danny, I was a sort of friend of Marcus who lived here." Rufus stopped at that point so the man, who clearly had a penchant for men, would draw the wrong conclusion about him and Marcus.
Rufus continued, to cement that conclusion "he paid me to do things for him."
"Oh really? Well you'd better come in then, Danny."
