Three days wait, so Mark decided to chill, sitting on the balcony communing with Mac2 - headaches were still a problem. He enjoyed the sun's rays.
If one could get inside Mark's brain, as Mac2 could, one would realise that the creature that he'd become was a 'cocktail' of his own youth, his ruthlessness, his own native intelligence, Marcus's higher intelligence, Mac2's deductive powers and, rather worryingly for Mac2, an emotional quotient that was totally beyond its control!
Had Mac2 been able to substitute Marcus's 'soul' for Mark/Rufus's he would have.
Marcus's skin was his problem.
Mark's skin was beautifully bronzed!
