12. Waiving the Red Shirt
Rufus was asleep before Ron (quietly) closed the door. Mac had never returned, so the Naked Mole Rat marinated in the cool, quiet dark. By late afternoon he did not wince when there was a tap on his cage wall. He opened an almost normal looking eye.
Hi. Daisy waved. Rufus twitched his whiskers in greeting and embarrassment.
The petite field mouse giggled, shifting the bundle on her back that she had fashioned out of a handkerchief. Beside her stood a can of vegetable-fruit cocktail, a dorm warming gift from Kim to Ron. (In case you get back on your Bueno Nacho diet. No one wanted to see that Ron again.) For the first time in his life someone had opened a fridge door in the same room and Rufus had not heard it.
