Amy FaceTimed the Editor of The Goss who was expecting her. She reeled off, with Rufus's help, the nature and extent of the story, without specific details. She turned the camera so he could see a close up of Rufus.
"He wants £1million."
"Then he can want!" spluttered the Editor.
Rufus heard. "Then he can call Adrian Tipton at NewsAM, who'll be ecstatic!"
"I can't possibly do a million quid", was the reaction when The Goss's arch rival was mentioned. "750K top whack!"
"750K?... no deal!.. 850K... deal!" parried Rufus.
"850K?.................. OK!.. better be good!"
"Better than better!" replied Rufus.
