Rufus was now on a mission, a mission that Mac2 would not recommend! He wanted to see Beth and his baby. What he would do when he got there and how he thought he wouldn't be turned in by Beth, he didn't know. But he did know he must see them, if only to disappear again.
The headaches were frequent now - a direct ploy by Mac2 to keep some semblance of control over headstrong Rufus - a name Mac2 recommended he forget. But Rufus, answering now to Tony, was driven by his emotional side, which Mac2 could neither understand nor influence.
