If 'say nothing' was what the stupid woman had advised him, contrary Rufus would do the opposite. He had no recollection of anything that had happened in the past 12 months or so. From his perspective, everything was as it was before he'd met Marcus and before he went to university. It was like a mental rewind.

"Tell us when you met Marcus Branthwaite", Twigg started.

"Who the fuck's he? Never heard of him!"

'Oh dear," thought Twigg, "he's gonna be like that and deny everything.'

"We found you living at his house."

"Bollocks! You're talking out of your arse!"

    Sorry for the bad language - it's not normally my style, however I'm aiming for drabble-vérité! (Don't know what my mum would have said! :-( )

    Particularly sorry Mum...as this one seems to be my 600th. I'll wash my mouth, pen and typing finger with soapy water! How's that?

    Thanks very much, Drew. Some make embarrassing rereading but I've had a ball. Rufus ain't finished yet but he's getting to me late at night and early morning. Maybe I'm falling for him...but it's Mac2 I really love!

    Congratulations, Neville. You've surpassed even Drew now in number of drabbles. You've been on fire while I've been away!

    Thanks, Christopher. I thought you'd gone somewhere. (Hope Alabama was hurricane free recently.)

    We only got some thunderstorms as a result of all that recent chaos. I've just been really busy with work lately, not to mention some personal upheavals, but I'm glad to be back. It'll just take me a little time to catch up!
