Skin Deep #346

Mac2 wasn't as trusting as Rufus. Any danger Rufus was exposed to threatened the machine's survival too. It was OK for Rufus to trust and understand Amy, but others had been involved.

Very fortunately, before he planned to trigger a final meeting with Amy to collect the £5,000, Rufus suffered another serious headache. He connected to Mac2 and the machine's misgivings were transferred.

That was a stroke of luck, because whilst Amy might have reservations about stitching up Rufus, the Editor did not. He was another ruthless being.

He would happily ride roughshod over Amy in pursuit of hero status!

    Just realised that this is my 700th drabble. However, Rufus, Mac and co have to take responsibility for almost exactly half of that. They must be punished!

    Very impressive mate. Rufus certainly has a life of his own doesn't he? Nice one, Nev :)

    Thanks Lisa and Drew....although I must say both of you are renowned for your fecundity too! And Rufus has done me proud. Pity to kill him off.

    Energy quotient now sadly depleted! Winter hibernation maybe...or perhaps Skin Deeper!
