  1. Thanks for reading Chapter 414 Simpson Residence- Summer Bay Background music Greg and Bobby’s theme Bobby pulled Sam’s bedroom door to the edge, and gently rested her head on it. She was in shock, but after being let down so many times, she shouldn’t have expected this time to be any different. It seemed like anytime she was about to be truly happy something happened that threatened that. Now she was back here again with Sam’s dad turning up. Bobby didn’t want to confuse Sam, so she wanted him to play in his room while she spoke to Greg to figure out if he was even telling the truth. Bobby inhaled then exhaled and made her way down the stairs. Greg was sitting down on the couch “Is he alright?” Greg said “Yeah, he is playing in his room..I think its best, for now. I don’t want to confuse him” Bobby said “Yeah sure, you’re right. I should have thought about all that instead of just turning up here..how this would affect him since he doesn’t know me” Greg said and Bobby sat down “How did you get my address?” Bobby said “I have a mate who works at the department, and I told her I was looking for my kid, and she gave me your details” Greg said “Well she is going to get fired when I report this” Bobby said “Please don’t…look I’m not here to cause any trouble, I just want my son” Greg said “Im sorry but I’m not going to just hand him over to you…like you said, he doesn’t even know you” Bobby said and Greg had to admit to himself that she was right. He really didn’t think this all the way through, and now he was stuck “Bobby can I have a drink please” Sam said from the top of the stairs “I’ll being you up one in a minute sweetheart, go and play in your room” Bobby said “Ok” Sam said as Bobby heard him rush back to his room “I think you should leave now” Bobby said and she stood up and walked towards the door "Look I know now that I shouldn't have just turned up here, but I just wanted to see my son" Grant said and Bobby didn't respond “I guess I have to do this the right way, Ill be in touch with the department, and will take the necessary steps to get my son back” Greg said and Bobby opened the front door. Greg looked at her then he walked out of the house. Bobby shut the front door just in time for a tear to fall down her cheek “He’s my son..and you’re not taking him away from me” Bobby said and inhaled and exhaled and wiped her cheek then she walked over to the phone, opened her phone book and began to dial “Hello, can I speak to Andrew Foley please…thanks” Bobby said and sighed Gibson Residence- Yabbie Creek “Nick…its me…I just wanted to tell you that we got back to Yabbie Creek ok..well..you must be at work…call me” Julie said and she put the phone down and wondered if she had made the right decision by leaving Barnett Residence- Summer Bay Nick lay on the couch and he looked at the answering machine as he listened to the message. The house was very quiet. He stared at the ceiling as he thought about purposefully not being here when Julie left. In a way he felt guilty that he was relieved that she was gone, yet he still felt the same way about her. Nick sighed then he got up, picked up his hat from the table, put it on and walked out of the house. Background music ends Caravan Park- Summer Bay Background music- Carly’s theme Carly buttoned the blouse and looked at herself in the mirror, however she noticed that the marks around her neck were still visible. She took it off and went into her wardrobe and took out a black polo neck top to wear to work and put it on. She pulled her hair out and fixed it around her face then she sighed and walked over to what used to be Bobby’s old bed and she sat down Flashback Carly- Why are your things always on my side of the room? Bobby- Well tidy it up if you don’t like it Carly- I feel sorry for Frank, he doesn’t know he’s marrying a slob Bobby- He loves me, and that’s all that matters Flashback ends Carly smiled to herself as she thought about how simple those times were in comparison to now. She got up from the bed and walked over to her old bed and sat down. She opened the bottom draw and took out the bottle of vodka and opened it. She drank some of the liquid, and closed her eyes and it ran down the back of her throat. She opened her eyes and drank some more then closed the bottle and put it in the draw. Carly swallowed the liquid and stared at the wall Flashback Ben- Well say something Carly- I don’t know what to say…I just always thought that when I get married, ill have a big wedding..you know with all my family there Ben- So are you saying you don’t want to marry me Carly- No, that’s not what I’m saying…its just that when Bobby and Frank got married, we were all there and.. Ben- Bobby is a drop kick and so is your family, do you want to get married or not Carly- Yes I do Flashback ends Carly sighed. She really wanted to be married to Ben, but she couldn’t understand why she kept messing things up. She knew that Ben didn’t mean to hurt her, she was always saying stupid things, and Mr Stewart was rushing him to fishing work at the surf club because they ere opening soon. Carly sighed then she got up from the bed and promised herself that she was going to be a better wife and make Ben happy. Carly smiled to herself then looked at bedside clock and walked out of the room… Background music ends Bayside Diner- Summer Bay “Here you go” Grant said and he put a plate of food in front of Greg and a glass of coke “Thanks” Greg said “I’ve not seen you around here, are you new in town?” Grant said “Yeah, just arrived today…Im Greg ” Greg said “Grant…You staying long?” Grant said “Not really” Greg said “Well enjoy” Grant said and he turned around to walk away “Hey Grant” Grant turned around “Do you know someone called Roberta Simpson?” Greg said Background music Greg and Bobby’s theme “You mean Bobby? Yeah, she owns this diner..and shes my landlord” Grant said and Greg looked at him surprised “Oh right…whats she like..you know as a person?” Greg said “Why are you asking all these questions? Grant said suspiciously “She’s fostering my son” Greg said “Your Sam's dad?” Grant said shocked “Yeah” Greg said “Hes a great kid, Bobby has done a great job with him” Grant said “And now I’m here to take over” Greg said and smiled then he began eating his food as Grant walked away “Did I hear correctly….is that little Sams father? isnt that a surprise?..What a shame though.. Bobby just got him back” Colleen said and Grant looked at her then he went into the kitchen. Colleen looked at Greg eating then she picked up the phone and began to dial “Betty…its me” Colleen said as she continued to look at Greg… Background music ends
  2. Thanks for reading Chapter 413 Manhattan- New York Background music- Have you ever been alone Frank and Sam stopped walking and sat down on a bench in the park “Manhattan is so beautiful when the season begins to change” Sam said and she bent down and picked up a leaf from the floor that was turning from green to brown Frank didn’t respond, he drank some of his coffee and stared into the cup. His thoughts and feeling where all over the place, and on days like this, he didn’t know if he was coming or going Frank felt a gentle nudge and looked at Sam “Sorry, I was miles away…what did you say?” Frank said “I was just saying that Manhattan is beautiful when the season is changing” Sam said and she showed Frank the leaf in her hand, but she could tell that he wasn’t interested “How is Mrs Fletcher getting on?” Sam said hoping that chaning the subject might cheer Frank up “She wrote last week, said the course is a bit hard, but she is still enjoying it” Frank said “She will be fine, it will all be worth it in the end” Sam said and smiled. She noticed that Frank did t respond. She sighed then she looked at her watch “I better get going, I don’t want to be late for class” Sam said and she drank more of her coffee then she stood up. “Thanks for buying lunch” Frank said. He felt bad when he agreed for Sam to pay, but he had to save every penny to pay back Mr James “You’re welcome. You always pay, and I wanted to treat you today” Sam said and Frank smiled “Finally, a smile” Sam said and Frank laughed “I better get going” Sam said and she put her bag on cross body then she leaned forward to hug Frank as she normally did, but this time, it felt different, Frank held onto her for a few seconds longer than he normally did then as he pulled away he stared into her eyes for a few seconds then he remembered what he was doing and he pulled away “Alright..ill see you later” Frank said then he smiled and turned around and walked away. Sam watched as he walked away trying to figure out what just happened and why her friend was so sad then she sighed and walked away… Background music ends High School- Summer Bay “Dismissed” Donald said and Emma walked out of his office and closed the door. She walked towards her locker and shortly after Sandra walked over “What did Fisher want?” Sandra said “Just to tell me that he is keeping an eye on me, and any trouble and I’ll be expelled” Emma said and she put her folder into the locker “We wont be here for much longer anyway…I’m going to the diner, do you want anything?” Emma said “No…don’t be late back” Sandra said “I won’t” Emma said then she shut her locker and walked away “Hi” Sandra turned around to see Steve standing behind her “Hi” Sandra said then she took her lunch out of the bag “Bit strange Emma turning up like that” Steve said “Yeah” Sandra said “I hope she’s not going to be a jerk this time” Steve said “No, I think she’s grown up…I have to go” Sandra said “Where are you going?” Steve said “I have to see Mr Croft” Sandra said then she closed her locker and walked away Nelson Bay- Australia Background music- Greg and Bobby’s theme “Ouch” Greg said and he shock his finger hard then licked the small cut to stop the blood flowing. He was attemting to fix something on the back of the truck before he got back on the road again. He noticed that his finger wouldn’t stop bleeding so he got up from the floor and went into the truck and grabbed his small first aid kit. He wiped the blood and put two plasters on his finger then put the kit away and returned to fixing what he was fixing and smiled to himself. Just a few short hours and he will see his son. He could admit to himself that he was anxious and scared. When Jackie told him she was pregnant, he couldn’t believe it. They had not been together for that long, and he didn’t feel ready for a son, so when a job opportunity came up for a long distance lorry driver. After a year of being on the road, he suddenly felt guilty for leaving Jackie to look after their son, and contacted her and that is when she sent him a photo of Sam. Even though it was probably late, he wanted to make up for not being in his sons life, and today was going to be the first step. Greg smiled to himself then he got into the truck, started the engine and began to drive away Childrens Park- Summer Bay Bobby smiled as she pushed Sam on the swing. The higher he got the more he giggled “I think you are way too high mate, you might end up flying” Bobby said as Sam laughed. She stopped pushing him and smiled as she watched how excited he was anytime the swing went up and down. She never thought that Sam would come back into her life…she had already concluded that she was going to be alone. As Sam began to get lower on the swing, Bobby opened the envelope in her hand and looked at the papers. It was adoption papers. This time she wanted to make sure that Sam wasn’t going to leave her. “Bobby” Bobby looked up and noticed that Sam had stopped swinging. She helped him out of the swing and onto the floor “After all that swinging, I think you might be hungry” Bobby said and Sam nodded enthusiastically “Ok, lets go and get some lunch” Bobby said and smiled as Sam held her hand and they walked away .Woolgoolga- Australia Sophies stomach rumbled as she ate the bread. There was not other food left in the motel they were staying in. Sophie but her hand on her stomach hoping to make the noise quit, because she didn’t want to wake her dad up because she knew he would be angry. The loud cough frightened Sophie and when she looked up, her father was staring at her “Why are you staring at me?” Al said annoyed and Sophie didn’t respond “turn around and face the wall, your face makes me sick” Al said and Sophie did as she was told, she turned around and faced the wall as she broke off as small bit of the bread and put it into her mouth and she chewed slowly. She knew that this was the only food she was going to eat, so she tried to make it last long. As Sophie broke off another piece and put it into her mouth a tear ran down her cheek. Soon, Bobby was going to find her and make her lots of nice things to eat and she was going to be really happy… Background music ends Bayside Diner- Summer Bay “Don’t forget, the movie starts at 8pm” Marilyn said “I won’t forget” Adam said and smiled “Alright, then, I better get back, ill see you later” Marilyn said and she leaned forward and kissed Adam “Emma” Emma looked up to notice that Adam was standing outside the diner with a woman “Hi” Emma said and smiled “When did you get back?” Adam said “A few days ago” Emma said “Is everything alright now…you know after” Adam was interrupted “Yeah, fine” Emma said as she remembered that he saved her when she attempted to take her life before she was forced back to her parents house “I’ll wait for you if you want, we can walk back to school together” Adam said “Thanks” Emma said and walked into the diner “Who is that?” Marilyn said “Oh shes Mrs Stewarts niece” Adam said “Oh..ok” Marilyn said as she watched Emma walk into the diner “Anyway, you better get back to work, ill see you later” Adam said and he kissed Marilyns cheek and walked towards the diner as she stood outside and watched him walk away.. High School- Summer Bay “Come in” David said as he bit into his sandwich and wiped his mouth. He looked up to see the door open “Mr Fisher, come in” David said and smiled. He was still struggling to get used to calling his uncle Mr Fisher but he knew that he had to be respectful while they were in school “Sorry to disturb your lunch” Donald said “No its fine, is there something wrong?” David said “We have a student who just transferred, well she was here for a few months and she left but shes now back again..how long for, I don’t know. However while she is here, I was hoping you would meet with her. From my understanding, she has been through some traumatic situations, which do have the potential to affect her school work” Donald said “Right, what traumatic situations?” David said “I’m not aware..her aunt, Ailsa Stewart wouldn’t give me the details, maybe the girl will tell you herself. Her name is Emma Jackson, year 10. Please try and speak to her at soon” Donald said “I will do that” David said and he wrote the name on the note pad and circled it as Donald walked out of the office. Simpson Residence- Summer Bay Background music- Greg and Bobby’s theme Bobby smiled as she watched Sam play with his trucks. She sighed the last page of the adoption application and she put it back in the envelope. Normally the application was to be posted, but since Bobby was going into the city tomorrow, she was going to take it personally. She wasn’t sure how long the application was going to take, but it didn’t matter, Sam was here and soon he was going to be here permantly. Bobby smiled and she put the envelope on the shelf and walked over to where Sam was and sat on the floor and smiled as she watched him play. Knock on the door “Ill be right back” Bobby said and she got up and walked over to the front door. When she opened it she saw a man with blond hair, wearing jeans and a t shirt looking at her “Can I help you?” Bobby said “Yeah, I’m looking for Roberta Simpson” Greg said “Yeah, that’s me” Bobby said “Oh right, My name is Greg…Greg Marshall..I’m Sam dad” Greg said with a smile and Bobby exhaled as she felt her heart break..

  3. Thanks for reading Chapter 412 Police Station- Taree Australia Ailsa looked at her watch, it felt like that had been here for a long time..which was true, that had been there for the whole day. Ailsa looked at Emma who was seated quietly next to her, and she put her hand on her leg Background music- Stewart family theme “Its going to be alright you know” Ailsa said and Emma didn’t respond “At least Barry is going to be alright..that’s the most important thing” Ailsa said trying to convince herself and be sound encouraging for Emma. This feeling felt very familiar to her…many years ago, she sat in a waiting room at a police station, anxious to know her fate. One that she hoped wouldn’t be for her niece. They both looked up when the heard the door open and a few seconds later, Emma’s mum walked into the room. Emma looked at her mum then she put her head down “I knew she would run to you” Bridget said as the door closed “I knew you would send the police after me” Emma said “You tried to kill my husband” Brdget said and she sat down “I told you what he was doing to me…I just wanted him to stop” Emma said and she began to cry “Oh rubbish, you are telling stories like you always did..I am his wife, what would Barry want with you?” Bridget said “Bridget enough” Ailsa said “This has nothing to do with you” Bridget said and Ailsa exhaled “Emma has always been a troublesome child, always throwing a tantrum when she wasn’t centre of attention…is that what all this is about? You wanted some attention?” Bridget was interrupted “No I didn’t..I am telling you the truth about what Barry did to me..why wont you believe me? I wanted him to leave me alone that’s why I picked up the knife…he wanted to do it quickly before you came home from work” Emma was interrupted “Oh be quiet, I don’t want to hear any more of your lies” Bridget said and she was just about to get up “WELL YOU ARE GOING TO HEAR ME” Emma said and Bridget froze and sat down and stared at Emma as she detailed all the years of abuse she had suffered..even describing intimate parts of Barry which shocked Bridget. She could no longer look at Emma as she listened to her daughter speak. Emma iped the teas from her face and was breathing heavily when she stopped talking. Ailsa put her arm around her to comfort her “Now do you believe her?” Ailsa said and Bridget looked up at her then she got up and walked out of the room as Ailsa comforted Emma Stewart Shop- Summer Bay “I don’t know sis..i’m not up to socializing” Alf said “This is the right time to be socializing Alfred” Celia said as she hobbled behind Alf “She probably wont want me to be there..maybe she got some packing to do or something "Alf said “Alfred, why are you giving up?” Celia said “My marriage is already over, there is no need to draw this out anymore..look sis, I appreciate what you are doing, but just leave it….i’ve got some stock to take over to the surf club, ill see you later” Alf said then he walked out of the shop as Celia sighed Background music end Department of social services- The City Background music- Frank and Bobby’s theme Bobby looked at the clock on the wall, she had been here for an hour. She was both anxious and guilty at the same time. She was waiting for Andrew because she wanted to make sure that everything was alright with Sam. She was told that Andrew was out, so she came to wait for him at his office. Bobby didn’t know much about Sam’s mum only that she was struggling, and if that was her that Bobby saw, she could tell that she was probably taking it out on Sam. Bobby membered that she had another little boy with her, maybe Sam had a brother she didn’t know about. “Bobby” Bobby looked up to see Andrew standing in front of her “Hi, sorry to come over, I just wanted to see if everything was alright with Sam. When I called I was told you were out, so I thought ive come and wait before I head back home. “Well im glad you did” Andrew said and he pointed to a room where Sam was playing and Bobby gasped and put her hand over her mouth “Is he alright?” Bobby said “He is now” Andrew said “What happened? I thought you said his mum was doing well?” Bobby said “Well she was, but unfortunately she decided that she just couldn’t take care of him, and surrendered him two weeks ago” Andrew said “So who was the lady I saw him with?” Bobby said “She is..well she was a foster parent and it was a blessing in disguise that you saw her..because we just removed all the children from her care” Andrew said “That's awful..so what will happen to Sam?” Bobby said “Well that would depend on you..” Andrew said and Bobby looked at him “Can he come home with me?” Bobby said “If you want him with you?” Andrew said and Bobby felt her heart beat fast and nodded “Yes…yes please” Bobby said and Andrew smiled “Go and see him, and ill get the paper work ready” Andrew said and Bobby looked at him “Thank you…thank you” Bobby said and Andrew nodded and walked away. Bobby walked the short distance and stood outside the room as her heart beat fast then she opened the door and Sam looked up. He put the toy down and immediately rushed over to her. Bobby bent down and hugged him as tears ran down her cheek. She wiped them and looked at Sam “You ready to go home?” Bobby said and Sam smiled and nodded aggressively. Bobby laughed and she hugged him again “This time, I’m never going to let you go” Bobby said and she exhaled and closed her eyes and smiled to herself Background music end Summer Bay Background music- Stewart family theme “So when are you leaving?” Steve said as he and Sandra and Sally walked home from school “I don’t know” Sandra said “What you said the other day...when you said you love me” Steve was interrupted “I better go” Sandra said and she waved at Sally then she rushed off as Steve watched her feeling confused… Police Station- Taree Australia Emma and Ailsa both looked up to see a sergeant walk into the room and closed the door. He sat down and looked at Emma “Based on the circumstances, we have decided not to pursue the case any further, however we urge that you stay out of trouble” the sergeant said as Emma and Ailsa both exhaled vocally “Did something happen?” Ailsa said “As I said, based on the circumstances..we are not pursing the case any further..you are free to leave..let me escort you out” the sergeant said then got up and Ailsa and Emma followed behind him. They walked to the reception and noticed that Bridget was sitting down. “Are you going to say anything to her?” Ailsa said and Emma shock her head no “I just wat to go home…with you…please” Emma said and Ailsa smiled “Ok, lets go home” Ailsa said and smiled. Emma walked past Bridget without looking at her, but Ailsa stopped and looked at her “Whatever you said to them to get them to drop the charges…thank you” Ailsa said and Bridget looked up at her then she looked down and Ailsa walked away as a single tear ran down Bridget's cheek… Barnett Residence- Summer Bay Nick yawned as he closed the back door. It had been a long day, and he was tired and he was probably going to have to cook. “Hi” Julie said and Nick got a shock when he saw Julie in the living room with her dad “Nick” Alec Gibson said and Nick nodded his head “I better get going love” Alec said and he began walking towards the door “Thanks for coming” Julie said and Alec bent down and kissed Julies cheek “Call me if you need me” Alec said and he lokoed at Nick “Bye” Alec said “Bye” Nick said and he watched as Julie waved at her dad, then she closed the door and turned around “I have some really good news” Julie was interrupted “guess what?” Julie said “What?” Nick said “I got the job at the resort..isnt that great?” Julie said “Congratulations” Nick said and smiled, he was genuinely happy for Julie “Which brings me to why dad was here…we had a long talk, and I decided to move back home” Julie said “Why? I thought you hated it there” Nick said “I think things will be different now” Julie said “What about your job?” Nick said “Dad will drive me to work every morning” Julie said “So what about us? We just together and now we are breaking up” Nick said and Julie sighed “I didn’t say I want to break up, I just don’t want to be a burden on you…and if I continue living here, we will end up breaking up” Julie said and Nick couldn’t argue if he was being honest with himself “I do still love you..and I want to make this work…this is the best way” Julie said “You should’ve discussed this with me first” Nick said “I told you how I was feeling” Julie said “So when is your dad coming to get you?” Nick said and Julie sighed “Tomorrow morning, because I have training on Wednesday” Julie said “Well you better get packing then” Nick said and walked out of the living room as Julie exhaled and wondered if she had made the right decision Background music ends Next Day Simpson residence- Summer Bay Background music- Greg and Bobby’s theme Bobby smiled as she watched Sam dip his toast into his ege and eat it. She gently ran her fingers through his hair and felt so much joy. She couldn’t even sleep much last night, so she sat in his room and watched him sleep…he belonged to her…finally someone who belonged to her…and she was never going to let him go again… Port Macquarie- Australia “Thank you so much Mary…see ya later” Greg said and he put the phone down and exhaled. He couldn’t believe it. He remembered that Mary had a crush on him, and he had to let her down gently but he was glad that she didn’t hold a grudge. Greg walked to his truck and got in and closed the door as he tried to process what Mary told him which was that his son was just fostered and was now living in Summer Bay with someone called Roberta Simpson. Greg started the engine and smiled to himself, in five or so hours, he was going to be reunited with his son then they would head on the road and have a great life together, and he couldn’t wait. Greg smiled to himself as he drove away Background music ends
  4. Thanks for reading Chapter 411 Two days later City University- The City Background music- Bobby and Greg’s theme Bobby parked her car. She looked at the clock on the dashboard and noticed she had 15 minutes before class started which was more than enough time. She locked the car and walked over to the phone box.

She picked up the receiver, put the money in the phone box and dialed the number and waited “Hi…can I speak to Andrew Foley please…thanks…..Andrew…hi…its Bobby..yeah fine…I’m at uni now…yeah..it's probably nothing...and i don't want to get anyone into trouble...but I have something to tell you” Bobby said Waltons Residence- The City Mrs Walton removed the sheets from the bed then she turned around to look at Sam who was standing by the wall. She walked over to him and grabbed him by the shoulder and turned him around then she pulled his pyjama pants down and smacked his bottom hard twice then she pulled them up and turned him around by his shoulders “YOU ROTTEN LITTLE MONGREL YOU WET THE BED AGAIN…SHUT UP AND STOP CRYING. BEFORE I GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO CRY FOR” Mrs Walton said as she looked at Sam who was very frightened. Mrs Walton turned away and began putting on another sheet shortly after she turned around and looked at Sam “If you wet this one, I’ll kill you. You’re going to stay in this room all day maybe that will teach you “ Mrs Walton said then she walked out of the room and slammed the door shut. Sam could hear her looking the door and then footsteps as she walked away. He slowly walked over to the bed and sat down and sighed then he got up and walked over to the window that had bars on it and looked outside…he wanted to see him mum..he wished that she would come and get him..but in his heart he knew it wasn;t going to happen. Sam couldn’t stop the tears that ran down his cheeks as his stomach rumbled…he was so sad, and wished he was at Bobby’s house…far far away from here…. Byron Bay- Australia “Hello Dave…yeah its me Greg…yeah I know, long time…how are ya…yeah still doing the long distance thing” Greg said and he put more money into the phonebox “I hope you don’t mind but I got a favour to ask, your sister Mary…does she still work for social services?..she does…well I’m trying to find my kid…and I think he might be in care” Greg said and he put more money in the phone box “I know it’s a long shot, but do you think your sister would be able to get me any information?...yeah I know its confidential..go on mate, ill owe you any favour..please..alright, so should I call later…I’m in Byron bay right now, I’m heading to Port Macquarie, can I give you a ring when I get there…thanks a lot mate…I owe you one…bye” Greg said and he exhaled and he put the phone down and smiled to himself..he was once step closer to finding his son which excited him.

He opened the visor and took out the photo of Sam as a baby, and smiled then he put the photo back, started the engine and drove away… Background music ends General hospital- Summer Bay Pippa turned the engine off as she talked to herself, she was trying to remember some key points she needed to go over for the pain management test she was having this morning. As she studied over the weekend, she was confident that she would do ok on the test but now she wasn’t so sure. Pippa sighed as she got out of the car, grabbed her bag and locked her car. As she walked to the hospital entrance she still tried to familiarize herself with the key points “They say talking to yourself is the first sign” Pippa turned around to see Dr Routledge behind her “Pardon me?” Pippa said confused “They say talking to yourself is the first sign of madness” Dr Routledge said and Pippa smiled “I was just reminding myself of some key points for the test this morning” Pippa said as Dr Routledge walked next to her “Oh right…well as long as you are familiar with all the work for the last three classes you will be fine” Dr Routledge said and smiled as he held the door open for Pippa “Ok, thanks…well ill see you in there” Pippa said and she smiled then walked away as Dr Routledge smiled to himself and walked towards his office… Caravan Park- Summer Bay “Does he ever stop crying?” Carly said as she rested her head on her fist. She was really tired because she didn’t sleep very well. Once again, she said something stupid and made Ben angry at her, so he made her sleep on the floor of the van, where there was hardly any space. Carly drank some of her coffee as Finlay tried to comfort Christopher “He’s teething, that’s why he is a little upset” Finlay said “Well take him outside or something, I’ve got a headache” Carly said and Finlay walked outside of the house. Carly drank some more of her coffee and sighed, she was mad at herself because she was still acting like a child when she should be acting like a married woman. She exhaled then smiled to herself, she was going to make it up to Ben and things were going to be perfect again. She had a great idea and couldn’t wait for Ben to get home and see how much she was sorry, and how much she loved him. Carly drank some more of the coffee and flapped her legs in excitement…. Stewart Residence- Summer Bay “Sorry for disrupting your plans” Emma said as she sat down at the dining table “You haven’t disrupted them…a few days delay isn’t going to matter…do you want some breakfast?” Ailsa said and smiled “No, I’m not really hungry…has Sandra gone to school?” Emma said “Yes, she left a little while ago” Ailsa said and Emma sighed “Everything will be alright” Ailsa said “I suppose not hearing from PC Parrish is good news” Emma said dejected “Don’t worry love…everything will be fine..then when this is all sorted, we can all get on the road…that’s if you want to come with us” Ailsa said and before Emma could answer Knock on the door “Ill get that…have some juice or something” Ailsa said and she walked out of the kitchen. Emma sighed and looked at Duncan who was eating his breakfast. He gave her half of his uneaten toast and Emma smiled “Emma Jackson” Emma looked up to see two police officers standing in the kitchen “Yeah” Emma said and her heart began to beat fast “Emma Jackson, you are under arrest for the attempted murder of Barry Jackson” The police officer said to Emma who looked at him then Ailsa in shock Stewart/Ross Residence- Summer Bay Michael put his plate in the sink, then he drank the last of his tea and put the cup in the sink while Celia sat at the table and ate her toast “Don’t forget we are having a guest today for dinner ?” Celia said as Michael walked over to the chair and put his jacket on “I wont be here, I told you last week, I have to go into the city to pick up some parts” Michael said “Oh? I don’t remember you mentioning it..are you sure you cant postpone, Alf is coming to dinner tonight, I thought you might be able to cheer him up” Celia said and Michael started laughing “Michael, it isn’t a joke..Alf has lost his marriage” Celia was interrupted “And whose fault is that?” Michael said “Yes, I know he made a mistake, but please have a little sympathy” Celia said “No way, he made his bed..well he made a few beds..and now he should lie in them” Michael said and he laughed as he walked out of the house. Celia sighed as she heard the door close. Then she inhaled vocally, she had an idea…She was also gong to invite Ailsa to dinner tonight that way she will remember the good times they had and decide not to leave. Celia clapped her hands in excitement and smiled to herself. She couldn’t wait for Alfred and Ailsa to be as happy as her and Michael…

She wasn’t best friends with Emma but knew that something bad was happening “Ailsa told you what happened?” Emma said “She said you had a fight with your step dad and he’s in hospital” Sandra yeah “Yeah” Emma said “Are you coming back to live here for good?” Sandra said “Just go away, you ask too many questions” Emma said “Fine, I was just trying to be nice” Sandra said then she was just about to walk out of the room when Ailsa appeared “Emma, PC Parrish is here now” Ailsa said “Mrs Stewart are we not going?” Sandra said “Not yet…do you mind staying in your room while Emma talks to PC Parrish “No…its ok…she may as well hear what happened from me” Emma said and she looked up at Sandra who looked at her surprised then Ailsa picked up Duncan and they all walked out of the room Caravan Park- Summer Bay “Just here is fine thanks” Pippa said and Dr Routledge slowed down the car and stopped “Thank you for the lift Dr Routledge” Pippa said and immediately there was thunder and it started to rain “You’re welcome and it looks like I got you home just in time…and its Ian” Dr Routledge said and smiled “Well I won’t keep you….have a good weekend” Pippa said as she took off her seatbelt “I must say you doing are doing very well with your studies keep it up” Ian said “Thanks” Pippa said and she smiled. “You’re welcome” Ian said and he stared at Pippa which for a split second made her feel uncomfortable then she got out of the car “Have a good weekend” Pippa said as she closed the car door “You too..dont study too hard” Ian said and he smiled then he drove away as Pippa walked into the house “Pippa who was that man” Sally said as Pippa closed the door behind her “Just one of my teachers, he gave me a lift because the car wouldn’t start” Pippa said and she lightly tapped Sally on the head and smiled Stewart Residence- Summer Bay Background music- Stewart family theme Emma wiped a tear from her eye as she explained to Nick about the years of abuse she had endured at the hands of her stepfather. Sandra looked at Emma and was shocked because Emma always acted tough like nothing ever bothered her “Emma, I have to ask this…did you tell anybody” Nick said and Emma nodded “I told mum…but she didn’t believe me…she thought that I was just making up stories because I told her I hate my stepdad” Emma said and exhaled “So what happens now?” Ailsa said “Are you going to arrest me?” Emma said “No, I’m not. I am going to get in touch with the police department in Taree and see if any assult cases have been reported, then I’ll find out about the condition of your step father and we will go from there” Nick said “Thanks Nick” Ailsa said as Nick stood up “I’m sorry this happened to you, but you are very brave for speaking out” Nick said as he looked at Emma “If you want to speak to anybody about what happened, I can give you the details of organizations with professionals who can help you work through and heal from all this…you are not alone, there are people who can help you” Nick said and Emma nodded. She wasn’t sure if she wanted to speak to anyone again, she just wanted to bury all this away and get on with her life. “I’ll be in touch” Nick said as he and Ailsa walked to the door “He’s right you know…you are very brave “ Sandra said “I don’t feel very brave…not after what I let happen to me” Emma said “It wasn’t your fault..ok” Sandra said and Emma looked at her and for the first time, Emma noticed that Sandra cared, she really cared about her… “Thanks” Emma said and Sandra gently patted her on the arm General Hospital- Taree- Australia “Do you know where your daughter might have gone?” The policeman said to Bridget “Yes I do…she’s probably gone to my Sister in Summer Bay…her name is Ailsa…Ailsa Stewart…when you find her…I want her arrested for what she did” Bridget said and smirked as the police wrote down the details she just gave him Background music ends Toowoomba- Australia Background music Greg and Bobby’s theme Greg put some more money into the phone box “Yes…yes I’m still here” he said as he waited “Well do you know where she is working now…..alright ill try there..thank you” Greg said and put the phone down as he wrote down on the piece of card the information he just received hoping that he was one step closer to finding his son The City- Summer Bay Bobby got into her van and yawned. She just finished a catering job and was ready to get back to Summer Bay. Bobby started the engine and began to drive. She turned a corner and stopped at a traffic light and she watched as a woman and two children crossed the road. As the woman got nearer to the car, Bobby noticed that one of the children looked familiar…she watched as the woman walked by. A car horn behind startled Bobby and she realized that the light had turned gree. She indicated left and turned into the direction of the woman. She noticed that the woman went into a shop and left the two children outside. Bobby parked her car outside the shop and turned the engine off. She got out of the car and walked towards the children “Sam?” Bobby said and he turned around. He didn’t say anything he just rushed towards her and hugged her legs “Hello sweetheart, how are you?” Bobby said excited to see the little boy who stole her heart. Before Sam could say anything he was started by a noise “SAM” Bobby looked up to see a woman walking towards her “You know you are not allowed to talk to strangers” The woman said as she pulled Sam’s arm “Its ok, I’m not a stranger, I fostered Sam for a little while..i’m Bobby” Bobby said and the woman ignored her and pulled Sam's arm again “Hey, you don’t need to pull his arm out of the socket” Bobby said “Mind your own business” The woman said and she walked away. Sam turned around and looked at Bobby but the force of his new foster mothers hand pulling him away caused his head to spin around. Bobby sighed as she watched the woman and the children until they disappeared then she got into her van and closed the door. She had so many emotions going though her head. She felt in her heart that something wasn’t right…she didn’t understand why Sam’s mum was treating him like that. She didn’t want to get her in trouble with social services but she couldn’t live with herself if something happened to him. Bobby started the engine and felt conflicted she didn’t want to get his mother in any trouble, but she had to go with her gut feeling…and that feeling was to protect Sam…and that is what she was going to do… Background music ends

She was shocked when she entered the living room “Emma” Sandra said and Emma looked up at her then wiped her face and looked down at her lap “Love, I want to talk to Emma in private, do you mind staying in your room for a while?” Ailsa said “Ok” Sandra said and she looked at Emma one more time then she went into her room and closed the door Background music- Stewart family theme “Auntie Ailsa, you can’t send me back there..I never should’ve left here” Emma said as she cried “Calm down and tell me what happened” General hospital-Taree Australia Bridget fidgeted with a hang nail on her thumb as she anxiously waited for news on her husband who had gone into emergency surgery. Bridget got up and being pacing up and down as she tried to understand why her daughter Emma was saying all the things she did. Bridget knew that her daughter made up stories sometimes but this was completely different. “Mrs Jackson?” Bridget looked up to see the surgeon taking off his mask “Yes doctor is my husband going to be alright?” Bridget said “Yes, fortunately the knife didn’t puncture his stomach too deeply, so we were able to go in and fix that tear however, he did lose a lot of blood” the surgeon said “Can I see him?” Bridget said “Well he is still under the anesthetic so he probably wont know you are there, but you can see him for a few minutes..please follow me” the surgeon said as Brigdet followed behind him Stewart Residence- Summer Bay “I I I just wanted it to stop..I didn’t mean to hurt him…I just wanted him to stop hurting me” Emma said and she cried as Ailsa hugged her and sighed. This was a familiar story for her..just wanting the pain to stop…doing anything just to make the pain stop… General hospital-Taree Australia Bridget walked slowly into the hospital room as the loud being of a heart monitor indicated the heart rate of her husband. She walked to his bed and stood next to it. After a few moments Barry her husband began to open his eyes “Love its me” Bridget said as she gently touched his hand. Bridget watched as her husband struggled to say something “Don’t try to speak love, doctor said you’ll be right as rain soon” Bridget said and smiled as her husband looked at her “Em..Emma” Barry said “Shhh…lets not talk about that now” Bridget said “Mrs Jackson” Bridget turned around as she heard her name to see a police officer standing by the door “Do you mind if I have a word with you, I am investigating the assult on your husband” the police officer said as Barry closed his eyes Stewart Residence- Summer bay “I can’t Auntie Ailsa, I can’t…they are going to put me in prison” Emma said “Not if you tell them the truth” Ailsa said “You told the truth and you were locked up” Emma said “This is different…and we don’t know if Barry is dead” Ailsa said “I don’t know what to do” Emma said then she looked around and noticed the suitcases “Where are you going?” Emma said as she pointed to the suitcase and reality hit Ailsa “Alf and I…we are getting a divorce, so Duncan, Sandra and I are moving to the city” Ailsa said “What about me? You can’t leave me…please don’t leave me” Emma said and she hugged Ailsa who sighed “You cant go anywhere until this is situation is resolved…Emma I know what its like to run away from your problems…they always have a way of finding you and dragging you back to a place you want to forget…speak to the police..tell them what happened…you are a victim as much as Bob is” Ailsa said as Emma thought about what her aunt said. She never thought of herself as a victim.. “Auntie Ailsa, do you believe me?” Emma said “Yes I do, but please talk to the police..don’t be like me, don’t run away” Ailsa said then she realized that maybe she was talking to herself..she always ran away when things got hard, and now here she was about to do it again “Ok..i’ll talk to the police” Emma said after a short while “Will you come with me?” Emma said “Let me call Nick Parrish our local copper, see if he can come here” Ailsa said and she got up from the couch “Thank you” Emma said and smiled.

It had been a long week and she just wanted to get home. She lifted up the hood and looked. She wasn’t completely well versed in cars, but she knew the basics “Can I help?” Pippa turned around to see Dr Routledge standing behind her “I think ill be alright, thank you” Pippa said and she reached into the car and pulled a lever which had appeared to move out of place then she tried the engine again and it still didn’t work “Can I give you a lift home or something?” Dr Routledge said “No, its ok, I can walk, I’m not too far” Pippa said as she put the hood down “I insist” Dr Routledge said “I’ll be fine, I don’t want you to go off your way” Pippa sai “It’s fine, besides…its going to rain soon, and I don’t want you catching a cold and missing your test on Monday” Dr Routledge said and Pippa smiled “Ok, thanks” Pippa said reluctantly and followed Dr Routledge to his car. She felt awkward because he was one of her teachers, but she didn’t want to be rude. Pippa got into the car and closed the door and put her seat belt on “Now where am I taking you to?” Dr Routledge said “138 McClymonts Road..thank you” Pippa said and Dr Routledge looked at her smiled, started his engine and drove away.. Waltons Residence- The City Emotional background music “YOU EAT YOUR DINNER NOW” Sam jumped as his new foster mother shouted at him then she walked away to answer the phone that was ringing. Sam looked down at the plate that had mash potato peas and fish fingers on it. Sam reluctantly picked up his fork and put some of the mash potato in his mouth. He wasn’t hungry and he wasn’t tasting the food he just wanted to show his foster mother that he was eating it so she would stop shouting at him. As he put more mash potato in his mouth he looked around to see the three other children at the table also eating quietly as they looked into their plates and not at each other. “Yes yes, Sam is getting on just fine” Mrs Walton said into the phone “Yes we love having him here..thank you for bringing him to us” Mrs Walton said again as she smiled to herself “Ok then..look forward to seeing you next week for the vist..ok bye” Mrs Walton said and she put the phone down as her smile disappeared.

I got the social worker coming next week, ill ask him to chase it up..i cant keep using my money to look after these little brats, especially that one who cant stop wetting the bed” Mrs Walton said pointing at Sam who sighed silently as Mr Walton laughed and walked out away… Background music ends
  7. Thanks for reading Chapter 408 Barnett Residence- Summer Bay Julie sighed as she watched the TV then she heard a knock on the door. She wheeled herself to the door “Who is it?” Julie said “Julie, it’s Bobby” Julie smiled and she moved back so she could open the door “Hi…come in” Julie said and smiled as she wheeled herself back to the living room. Bobby closed the door and followed behind her “I was just on my way home and wanted to see if you heard anything about the job” Bobby said “No, nothing…I don’t think I got it” Julie said dejected “Don’t be negative, when did they say they would get back to you?” Bobby said “Sometime this week” Julie said “Well the week hasn’t ended yet. I can check up with the manager when I go in tomorrow if you like” Bobby said “Oh yes please, if you wouldn’t mind” Julie said excited “Yeah, no worries” Bobby said and she noticed that Julie’s smile disappeared “Are you alright?” Bobby said and Julie shook her head no Emotional background music “You didn’t tell Nick how you feel did you?” Bobby said and Julie nodded no “Why not? If you’re unhappy you have to let him know” Bobby said “I know but….I …I don’t want to lose him, he's everything I dreamed of. I never thought a guy like him would want someone like me…stuck in a chair” Julie said and Bobby felt like she had been hit in the stomach as this sounded so familiar “I…met someone…a few years ago and he was everything I wanted…life was great, I got the best marks in my HSC that year and could’ve gone to any uni..in fact I did want to go to uni..but my ex..he had different ideas…he wanted to get married, and I wanted that too, but he wanted to be the one who goes to work, while I stayed at home. Well to cut a long story short, I gave up my dream of going to uni because I didn’t want him to leave me and after we got married he left me anyway. if I had the courage to stand up for myself that time, maybe we wouldn’t have gotten married…maybe we would’ve waited and would still be married. My point is, I wasn’t honest about how I was feeling, and if you want to make this relationship work, you need to be honest and Nick will be supportive of whatever you want to do if he loves you” Bobby said “Yeah, you’re right…but what if he isn’t?” Julie said “Well…It’s better to know now, then to end up like me” Bobby said “I don’t mean to pry, but it sounds like you are still in love with the guy” Julie said “Unfortunately, that’s the hard part…it never goes away” Bobby said “I just don’t want to go back to my parents house, but that seems to be the only option” Julie said “Before you make any decisions, talk to Nick…ok?” Bobby said and Julie nodded “Ok, I will…thanks Bobby…you’ve been a real mate” Julie said and Bobby stood up and smiled “Anyway I better get going” Bobby said and she walked towards the door “I’ll follow up with the admin manager and call you when I hear something” Bobby said as she opened the door “Ok, thanks Bobby…see you later” Julie said and exhaled as Bobby closed the door. A few seconds later Julie heard the backdoor open “Hey, Who was that?” Nick said as he walked into the house “Bobby, I thought you wasn’t coming home until later” Julie said as Nick kissed her cheek “I have a few hours owed to me and thought I’d come home early..did you hear anything from the resort?” Nick said “No nothing, Bobby said she will follow up when she goes there tomorrow” Julie said “Ok, shes a real mate” Nick said as he put his hat on the counter and opened the fridge “Nick…can we talk about something?” Julie said as she wheeled herself into the kitchen and Nick closed the fridge and sat at the dining table “Yeah, what’s the matter” Nick said noticing that Julie looked serious “I love you…you know that..well I hope you know that…but being here….its very difficult for me..I cant reach anything..I’ve fallen out of my chair more times than I can count and I feel like I am an extra burden for you” Julie was interrupted “You’re not” Nick said “Nick, I see it on your face” Julie said and she sighed “So, do you want to break up? Is that what this is about?” Nick said “No I don’t…its just that I don’t want to be a burden on you…you cant be at work all day then have to come home and take care of me” Julie said “So, I don’t understand, what do you want?” Nick said “Maybe..I should just move back home” Julie said “But you didn’t like it there…and your parents, they don’t like me” Nick said “I don’t know what else to do, because I cant be a burden on you” Julie said and Nick hugged her “Its going to be fine” Nick said and sighed. In a way he was relieved to know that Julie could see that she was an extra responsibility, yet he knew that he didn’t want their relationship to end. Julie inhaled and exhaled, she felt relieved that she told Nick how she felt but she was scared of what was going to happen next…maybe this was not a good idea at all. Julie closed her eyes as a tear fell down her cheek Background music ends Stewart Shop Summer Bay Alf drank more of the whiskey as he heard the knock on the door. He put the glass down and walked to the door, he opened it to see Debra standing there “I hope I wasn’t disturbing you” Debra said and Alf walked away and sat at his dining table and poured himself another whiskey “Do you want a drink?” Alf said “No, I’m not staying long” Debra said as she closed the door behind her “I just want to come and tell you thank…Blake and I are leaving Summer Bay…with everything that has happened , I think its for the best” Debra said as Alf looked at her “With everything that has happened, I think I should leave too” Alf said as he drank more whiskey “Things not working out with you and Ailsa?” Debra said “What do you think?” Alf said “Look Alf…I’m really sorry about everything…coming to Summer Bay…starting the affair..destroying your marriage ” Debra was interrupted “I was a willing participant…for a second time” Alf said “But I should’ve had the strength to walk away, but I didn’t…and for that, I am sorry” Debra said “Its not your fault Deb…do you know where you are going?” Alf said “Moving back with my parents, then figure things out from there” Debra said “What does Blake think about all this?” Alf said “He knows its for the best…I don’t want the gossiping to affect his school work” Debra said “Right” Alf said “Anyway, I better get going..its getting late and I want to finish packing” Debra said “When are you leaving?” Alf said “Tomorrow…ive already given my notice in at the school and Mr Fisher authorized it to be effective immediately” Debra said “I want to stay in touch with my kids” Alf said “Alf…ill let that be their decision to make” Debra said “Yeah, I suppose you’re right..after all these years, I have no right to demand anything from them” Alf said and sighed “Do you need any money or anything?” Alf said “No, ill be fine” Debra said and smiled as Alf walked towards her “Take care of yourself” Debra said and she gently kissed Alf on his cheek “Yeah, you too” Alf said and smiled then he watched Debra open the door, step out and closed the door behind her then he slid down the door and cried as he thought about the mess he had made of his life Background music ends Caravan Park- Summer Bay Steve swept the floor outside the caravans and put the extra dirt into the container next to him. He remembered the conversation he had earlier with Sandra where she told him she loved him. It was unexpected because he thought that she didn’t see him like that anymore…especially after she let him down and chose Rebecca instead which turned out to be a terrible decision because now he and Rebecca were broken up even though neither had officially said anything, they just drifted apart.Steves thoughts were interrupted when he heard foot steps walking towards him and he noticed it was Ben. “Looks like you missed some garbage” Ben said and he threw the rubbish he had in his hand on the floor and laughed “Next time put it in the bin” Steve said and he bent down and picked up the rubbish and put it in the container “Did you say something?” Ben said and walked towards Steve “Yeah I said next time put your rubbish in the bin” Steve said “What did I tell you last time about your disrespect? Ben said and he stood right in front of Steve “Get out of my way” Steve said and Ben laughed “What are you going to do about it?” Ben said and laughed even harder as Steve got annoyed and before Ben knew it, Steve had punched him in the face and he was on the floor “STEVE WHAT DID YOU HIT HIM FOR?” Carly said as she rushed over to where Ben was “IT WAS HIS FAULT, STARTING ON ME” Ben said as Carly attempted to see if Ben was alright “Are you alright?” Carly said and Ben slapped her hand away as she tried to touch his face. Ben put his hand up to his nose and noticed it was bleeding then he got up and began walking back to his van as Carly walked over to Steve “You are going to be in so much trouble when Pippa gets home…you just watch..Im going to make sure that she sends you to another foster home” Carly said as Steve stared at her “It was his fault” Steve said and suddenly he felt some regret for hitting Ben because Carly had a way of getting her own way “You are out of here” Carly said to Steve then she walked back to the van and walked inside to see Ben wiping his face “Here let me help you” Carly said and Ben slapped her hand away ‘This is your fault…if we lived in a flat then I wouldn’t have to see your stupid family” Ben said “I’m trying to find one in our price range” Carly said “Well you're not trying hard enough” Ben said “I don’t see you making any effort to help” Carly said and she folded her arms “What did you say?” Ben said “I said you;re not making any effort to find us a place” Carly said and before she could say another word Ben wrapped his hands around her throat “Ben..i’m sorry….i cant breathe…please stop…I’m sorry..please stop” Carly said and eventually Ben let go and she fell onto the chair “You’re useless anyway” Ben said and he opened the door of the van, looked at Steve then he walked to his car, got in and drove off… Next day Stewart Shop – Summer Bay Alf felt his head pounding as he put the pints of milk into the fridge. As he put a pint in, he heard the bell above the shop sound so he walked back to the counter “Blake” Alf said “G’day, I hope you dot mind me coming here” Blake said “No, of course not” Alf said “I just wanted to come and say bye, because we are leaving today” Blake said “Yeah, your mum told me…I’m sorry to see you go” Alf said “Yeah, but its for the best” Blake said “You’re always welcome to come back here…for a visit..for anything” Alf said “Thanks” Blake said “You have my number if there is anything I can do for you” Alf said “Thanks..I better get back to the house” Blake said “Well, take care of yourself” Alf said and Blake put his hand out and Alf smiled and he shook his hand “You too” Blake said then he smiled and walked out of the shop as Alf sighed Stewart Residence- Summer Bay Ailsa waved as Bobby drove away then she wiped the tear that was almost falling from her eye and walked back to the house. She could hear Sandra in her room who hadn’t said much since she walked in on her and Alf arguing. Ailsa felt guilty because it probably reminded Sandra of when her parents were fight. Ailsa looked around to make sure she had not left anything behind when she heard a knock on the door. She walked towards the door and opened it, and to her surprise she saw Debra standing at the door “Look, I know I’m the last person you expected to see…but I want to talk to you…can I come in?” Debra said and Ailsa walked into the living room and Debra followed behind her. “What do you want?” Ailsa said as she looked at Debra “I came to tell you that I am sorry for everything that happened…I never set out to have an affair with Alf” Debra was interrupted “But you did” Ailsa said “I know, and that is why I am here owning what I did, and apologizing to you for the hurt I've caused you” Debra said “You cant even begin to imagine the hurt you’ve caused me” Ailsa said “I know..you’re right…I cant imagine. All I can say is that I am sorry…not that this is compensation, but I am leaving Summer Bay today…after everything that has happened I don’t want my sons schooling to be affecting so I think its best if I leave” Debra said and Ailsa looked at her “I know I have no right to say this, and you have no right to take my advice, but Alf is a good man” Debra was interrupted “You’ve got to be joking” Ailsa said and shook her head “Alf is a good man…and I hope that with me out of the way, the two of you will be able to work things out and get back together…because I know that is what he wants” Debra said even though it was hurting her inside “I better be going” Debra said and she looked at Ailsa one more time and walked out of the house. Ailsa didn know how to feel. In some regard she was relieved that Alf was telling the truth about want to be with her and not Debra, but she was still angry that the affair happened. She couldn’t forgive him…she had to leave, all the bags were packed….she had to go Knock on the door Ailsa sighed. She really didn’t want any more visitors because they had to get on the road soon, Graham was expecting them.

He had been working on this all week as the company as finalizing a deal with the client “Frank, I need you to follow up with Des Lithgow, the project is a go” Jerry said. When Terry Greyson wasn’t in the office, Jerry was in charge “I’m just finishing up on the Clayton proposal” Frank said after he took the pen out of his mouth “Why? Adam has been working on it and handed the proposal in yesterday” Jerry said and Frank sighed “No one told me, ive been working on this all week” Frank said and he put the pen on the table “You were absent from the meeting the other night and a decision had to be made…now follow up with Des Lithgow and get me the details” Jerry said and he walked away. Frank sighed and slumped back into his chair. He had been working on the project all week. He got up from his chair and walked the short distance to Adams office “Thanks a lot” Frank said and Adam looked up “What?” Adam said :You could’ve told me that you were working on the Clayton proposal” Frank said “Look, im just here to my job” Adam said looking at Frank who sighed then walked away. Frank walked back into his office and closed the door. He sat on the chair and sighed. It wasn’t Adams fault it was his fault.

Frank started to panic then the line went dead. Frank sighed as he put the phone down. Since he was released from the hospital, he knew that he had to give Mr James his money back. He had seen the car following him on several occasions and this was not the second or third time that he had got a call like this. Frank sighed again he was still in the same mess and nothing was getting better and he didn’t know how much more of this he could take… Bayside diner- Summer Bay “Oh sorry” Dr Routledge looked up to notice that he had bumped into an attractive young woman “It was my fault, I was searching for my purse in my bag” Lucinda said “Ian Routledge” Dr Routledge said “Lucinda, Lucinda Croft” Lucinda said and smiled at the handsome man she had never seen before “Nice to meet you Lucinda” Dr Routledge said “Did I spill any of your coffee?” Lucinda said “Just a little bit, but its fine I will clean it up when I get back to the hospital” Dr Routledge said and smiled “Are you sure? I insist on cleaning your tie for you” Lucinda said “No need…see hardly any coffee on it at all” Dr Routledge “Ok” Lucinda said and smiled “Do you live around here?” Dr Routledge “Yes, I moved here a few months” Lucinda said “I just moved here a few weeks ago” Dr Routledge “Did you by any chance move into Blaxland house?” Lucinda said as Dr Routledge looked at her shocked “Yes…I did” Dr Routledge “Sorry…it’s a small town, and everyone knows everyone’s business” Lucinda said and laughed “Oh right” Dr Routledge “and the owner of that house is also my aunt…well aunt through marriage” Lucinda said “Oh right…anyway, I better get going” Dr Routledge “Sorry again about your tie” Lucinda said “No worries” Dr Routledge said and winked and walked away. Lucinda turned around and watched him get into his car and she smiled to herself….maybe Summer Bay wasn’t so bad after all and turned around and walked into the diner. Before Dr Routledge drove off he turned around and watched Lucinda and smiled to himself “Looks like moving here was the right decision after all” He said to himself then he drove away Summer Bay “I guess this is it then” Sandra said as she slowed down walking “Bye Sandra” Sally said and she gave Sandra a hug “Bye Sally” Sandra said and she smiled then she began to walk “Do you know how long you’re staying with Mrs Stewart’s friend?” Steve said “No, just until she can find us a place to stay” Sandra said “Well when she does that…stay in touch” Steve said “Yeah ok” Sandra said not convinced because she knew it probably wouldn’t happen “Its going to be really weird around here now with Craig Viv and now you gone…anyway I better go” Steve said “Ok” Sandra said as her heart was breaking inside and before she knew it, she reached forward and hugged Steve. Although he was surprised, he hugged her back and then he pulled away and they looked at each other “I love you” Sandra said then Steve bent down and kissed her. Sandra closed her eyes and enjoyed the moment as it was going to be the last time she saw him then she started feeling sad “ What you just said” Steve was interrupted “I have to go” Sandra said then she rushed away as Steve watched her go as he tried to process what she had just said to him Stewart Residence- Summer Bay The banging on the front door made Ailsa jump. She folded Duncans trousers and put them into the suitcase. She was going to do a bit more packing before he woke up. Ailsa walked out of the room and opened the door to see an angry Alf standing at the door “What do you want?” Ailsa said and she turned around and walked into the house Background music- Stewart family theme “So you really hate me that much that you would just pack up and leave with my son without telling me” Alf said “You knew it was coming, my solicitor sent you the divorce papers” Ailsa said “THAT DOESN’T GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO LEAVE WITH MY SON” Alf said “DON’T YOU DARE TELL ME WHAT RIGHTS I HAVE ” Ailsa said “YOU’RE NOT LEAVING WITH MY SON” Alf said “HE’S MY SON AND I DON’T WANT HIM HERE WITH A LIAR LIKE YOU” Ailsa said “I SAID I WAS SORRY HOW MANY TIMES DO I NEED TO TELL YOU…I MADE A MISTAKE WITH DEB I TOLD YOU IT WAS OVER” Alf said “SO WHY DID I SEE HER COMING OUT OF YOUR FLAT THE OTHER NIGHT?” Ailsa said and Alf stopped to think about what she said “What are you talking about?” Alf said “I couldn’t find Duncan’s blanket and I thought maybe you packed it with your stuff so I went over to the flat to get it from you and she was leaving” Ailsa said “Yes she was leaving after I told her that I wanted to patch things up with you that I wanted my family back” Alf said and he touched Ailsa’s arm “DON’T TOUCH ME, YOU ARE A LIAR…YOU CAME HERE AND TOLD ME THINGS WERE OVER WITH HER AND I NEARLY BELIEVED YOU…” Ailsa said "I WASNT LYING ITS THE TRUTH..SHE CAME OVER AND I TOLD HER ITS OVER I TOLD HER ITS YOU I LOVE" Alf said "GET OUT" Ailsa said “PLEASE STOP FIGHTING!” Ailsa and Alf turned around to see Sandra was standing at the door with tears running down her cheeks then she rushed to her bedroom and closed the door as Ailsa sighed “Just go” Ailsa said and Alf looked at her and sighed. As he walked towards the door he could hear Duncan crying. He thought about going to him but he didn’t think it was a good idea. He walked out of the house and closed the door. Ailsa walked to the bedroom and picked up Duncan who stopped crying. She hugged him tight and began to cry…. Background music ends
  9. Thanks for reading Chapter 406 Barnett Residence- Summer Bay Julie sighed as she watched Nick put the plates away in the cupboard. If she was home, she would be able to put them away herself. She couldn’t even wash the dishes because the sink was so high “So when do you hear about the job?” Nick said “Well the manager said hopefully early next week” Julie said as Nick continued to put the pots and pans he used to cook away. Julie felt so helpless “I hope you get it, you did say Bobby put a good word in for you…and the resort is not too far from here, you can walk” Nick stopped talking and he turned around “Sorry…I didn’t” Nick was interrupted “Its alright” Julie said and smiled “Kitchen is nice and clean, lets go into the living room, and see whats on the TV” Nick said and she pushed Julie into the living room and parked her chair next to the couch. Nick sat down and picked up the remote control “Oh, I’ve been waiting for this movie to come on” Nick said then he put the remote control down “This bloke always makes good movies” Nick said pointing at the TV then he looked at Julie who was staring at her hands “Is there something wrong? Don’t you want to watch this movie?” Nick said Emotional background music “No…its fine” Julie said “So what’s wrong? You haven’t really said much” Nick said and he muted the TV. Julie inhaled and exhaled. She knew she had to say something…but she didn’t want to have to face the consequences “It’s nothing..you can just watch the film…im a little bit tired, so I am going to have an early night” Julie said “Ok ok….well let me know when you are changed so I can help you into bed” Nick said then he umuted the TV and began watching the movie. Julie exhaled and she wheeled herself to her room. She was annoyed that she chickened out but she really wanted to be with Nick, and didn’t want nothing to spoil it…she just had to try a bit harder..if she did, things would be ok Julie thought to herself as she wheeled herself int the bedroom and closed the door. Back ground music ends Stewart shop- Summer Bay “I thought I’d bring you over some dinner, since I haven’t seen you much lately” Debra said as Alf opened the door “Yeah, just been a bit busy with getting the surf club up and running and Duncan being in hospital” Alf said as Debra walked into the flat behind him and closed the door “I’m glad he’s feeling better” Debra said and she put the containers of food on the table “Thanks” Alf said “I thought that maybe you were avoiding me” Debra said and she sat next to Alf who inhaled and exhaled Background music- Stewart family theme “Look Deb..my head is all over the place right now…” Alf said “I don’t understand, what do you mean?” Debra said “What I mean is…this thing between us…I want..my wife back” Alf said and Debra felt like a knife had stabbed her in her chest “But its over between the two of you…that’s what you said” Debra said “That is what I thought…but these last few days with Duncan being in hospital…It gave Ails and I a chance to spend some time together” Alf said “So what about us…you told me you loved me” Debra said “I do..I did…I’m sorry..for doing this to you again” Alf said and sighed “I do hope…we can be friends…for the sake of the kids” Alf said and Debra looked at him then she walked out of the flat and closed the door Ailsa parked the car and turned the engine off. She had searched everywhere for Duncans blanket…the one he didn’t like to sleep without, and thought maybe Alf might have accidently packed it in his stuff when he left the hospital. If Ailsa was really honest with herself….she really wanted to see Alf. Even though nothing has changed, being with him at the hospital reminded her of how much she loved him..how much she wanted to try and trust him. He told her it was over and if she was honest with herself she was starting to believe him. Ailsa inhaled and exhaled and was just about to open the car door when she noticed the door next to the shop open. Ailsa noticed someone walking out and as the person got closer Ailsa opened her eyes wide…it was Debra. She watched as Debra got into her car and drove away. Ailsa shook her head and felt like a fool. She couldn’t believe that she almost fell for Alf’s lies again. She wiped the tear that ran down her cheek, and started the car engine and drove away Background music ends Four days later High school- Summer Bay David heard a knock on the door.

As he chewed he noticed that Sandra was just staring at the sweet in her hand “So, hows it going?” David said “Ok” Sandra said “Is everything alright at home?” David said “Well sort of” Sandra said “Why don’t you tell me about it” David said and Sandra looked up at him Bayside Diner- Summer Bay “Does Bobby know that you are leaving on Friday?” Grant said as he stood at the doorway to the pantry “Yes, she didn’t take it to well..but she’ll get over it” Ails said as she did the stock take and counted the tins “So Sandra is going with you?” Grant said “Yes” Ailsa said as she wrote the numbers of tins she needed to buy on the clip board High school- Summer Bay “Mrs Stewart has done so much for me…that’s why I said I would go..but Summer Bay is my home…my friends are here..I want to be here” Sandra said as a tear ran down her cheek “But she did give you a choice?” David said and Sandra nodded “Do you think she wouldve been upset if you chose to stay in Summer Bay?” David and Sandra shrugged “I probably would feel guilty if I stayed” Sandra said Bayside Diner- Summer Bay “So do you have a place ready?” Grant said “Since its short notice, we’re going to stay with a friend of mine in the city for a while…until I find suitable housing” Ailsa said “Does Mr Stewart know that you’re leaving?” Grant said “No…and to be honest with you I am glad that I am leaving, that way I will never have to see his face again” Ailsa said as Grant looked at her and sighed Stewart Shop- Summer Bay “But I thought you said you were making progress?” Celia said confused “That’s what I thought, but for some reason Ails has gone really cold on me…she wont answer my calls and she pretty much stayed in the room when I went to visit Duncan” Alf said and sighed “Maybe I should just give up” Alf said “No Alfred, you mustn't give up…I will not allow you to give up” Celia said “I don’t know what to do anymore sis..I don’t want to live here anymore, I just want to be back home with my family..this is worse than being locked up in a jail said for murder” Alf said and sighed “You have to show Ailsa that you are truly sorry” Celia said “I don’t think that is going to be enough. Ive said sorry so many times” Alf said “Don’t give up Alfred..if you love her…don’t give up” Celia said and Alf looked at her then at his watch and sighed…"Its probably too late anyway,...I better get going to the surf club, check on Carly’s husband” Alf said as he walked to the door, opened it and closed it behind him. Celia sighed as she watched Alf get into the car and drive away. She felt bad that he was going through this when her marriage was perfect…well things were not always the best with Haydn, but she knew that Michael loved her and would not cheat on her. Celia smiled to herself as she picked up the phone to call Michael just say hello Ross Boatshed- Summer Bay Phone ringing Michael looked over at the phone as it rang and continued to thrust. The screwdriver and other tools that were on the table made a noise as they fell to the floor but Michael didn’t care the rush of what he was doing made him excited Phone ringing “Are you not going to get that?” Michael thrusted furiously then he looked down at Katie, the engine sales rep who visited him once a month “No, whoever it is can wait” Michael said as he bent down and kissed Katie and continued to thrust as both verbally exhaled….

She took her key out of her pocket and opened the door quietly. Frank was sitting on the couch watching tv. Roo closed the door behind her and walked into the house “Hi..” Roo said “Hi” Frank said not taking his eyes off the Tv “I’m really sorry about tonight, I know we said we were going to watch a movie” Roo said “Its fine” Frank said “Maybe we can go and watch the movie tomorrow night or something?” Roo said “Yeah” Frank said “I’m just going to change” Roo said and she walked back to the bathroom, turned the light on and closed the door. Frank exhaled as he heard the door close. Roo knew that Frank was trying to make an effort, but she just couldn’t say no to Helen asking her to stay behind to get some work done. She could feel the distance between her and Frank and sometimes she wished that Pippa was still here, that way things wouldn’t be so awkward. Frank changed the channels to see if he could find something else to watch but he didn’t. He eventually turned the TV off and got into bed. A short while after, Roo walked out of the bathroom and got into bed next to Frank. Frank stared at the ceiling as Roo tried to get comfortable. Frank could feel the distance between them…things were not like they were before..and he wasn’t sure if they ever would be. Roo stared at the wall then she pushed her hair behind her ear and turned around to face Frank. She put her head on his arm and he put his arm around her. Both confused about how they were feeling yet neither wanted to be the first to say it out loud Social Services- The City “Sam Marshall is back again?” The social worker said as she looked through her notes “Yes” The assistant said “Do we have him placed anywhere yet?” The social worker said “No not yet” The assistant said “The waltons in George St have some space, I think they would be a good fit for him” The social worker said “Ok, ill give them a call, and see if we can get him placed tomorrow” The assistant said as the social worker nodded and walked out of the office .Woolgoolga- Australia “Shut up before I really give you something to cry about” Al Simpson said through clenched teeth as he hit sophie one more time with his belt. Sophie tried her best not to let out a cry as the belt hit her thigh. Eventually Al stopped and walked away leaving Sophie cowering in the corner. Al opened the motel door and walked out slamming it shut behind him. Sophie slowly hobbled to the window to see her dad walking away. This was her chance….her chance to escape. Her heart began to beat fast as she thought about what she was about to do. She hobbled back to the corner and put her shoes on, and her cardigan and walked as fast as she could back to the door. She put her hand on the handle and was about to turn it then she froze. She couldn’t leave, her dad would find her and he would be really angry at her. Sophie pulled her hand away from the door handle and she stared at it. She reached for the handle again, she knew she had to get away..Sophie felt so conflicted she didn’t know what to do…then when she finally plucked up the courage Al opened the door “What are you doing?” Al said and Sophie began to walk backwards “Do you think you are going somewhere?” Al said and Sophie stared at Al as he began walking towards her “You wasn’t going to try and run away was you?” Al said and Sophie shook her head no “You better not, nobody’s going to want you anyway” Al said then he picked up a newspaper on the bed and sat down.

Nick winked and drove off. Julie inhaled and exhaled then she wheeled herself towards the resort. The automatic doors opened and Julie went inside and she looked around. She thought the inside looked really nice as she wheeled herself to the reception and waited. She was here for a receptionist position which Bobby had put a good word in for her “Hello can I help you?” The receptionist said as she returned to the counter “Hello yes, I have an interview..my name is Julie Gibson” Julie said to the receptionist and smiled “Ok, let me just inform the manager that you are here, please wait over there and he will call you shortly” The receptionist said and pointed Julie to a waiting area.

She had to admit that through the hurt she still loved Alf. The last few days she had pushed away what he did , and they were practically carrying on as if nothing never happened. “Please love…I want to come home..” Alf said “Alf…you hurt this family…you made a complete fool out of me because I trusted you. I believed all your lies…all those meetings you were going to…neglecting time with me and Duncan to be with her…how can I forgive that?” Ailsa said “I know…I was wrong..just seeing Deb again, it reminded me of the old times…unfinished business I don’t know…its not an excuse I know…what I do know is that I love you and I want to be here with my family…with you Duncan and Sandra…I wont see Deb again..please Ailsa” Alf said “Its not going to be that easy…she’s also the mother of your children..or did that slip your memory” Ailsa said and Alf sighed “I think you should just go “ Ailsa said as she began to walk towards the front door as Alf followed behind her “I’m not giving up Ails…” Alf said as Ails opened the front door then turned to look at Alf “I love you and I’m not giving up” Alf said then he walked out of the house.

He smiled as he looked at her legs, he found her very attractive “Oh just tidying up before I start dinner” Finlay said “Can I help you with anything?” Ben said as he walked into the house “No thanks, I’m ok” Finlay said as Ben stared at her. He knew that nobody was home, and Carly had gone to the wholesalers to get things for the diner “That’s a shame because I am not doing anything right now” Ben said as he got closer and was just about to touch Finlays hair then the door opened and Steve walked into the house “Hi Steve” Finlay said as Steve watched Ben move his hand away as Sally walked into the house. “Hi” Steve said as he put his bag down and stared at Ben as Sally began telling finlay about the project she was doing at school Steve walked into the kitchen and Ben followed behind him.

  12. Thanks for reading Chapter 403 Richmond- Australia Background music – Bobby and Greg’s theme Greg put some money into the phone and dialed the number and waited “Hello…yes…my name is Greg Marshall…I am trying to find out some information about my son and his mum…her name is Jacqueline Nicolls…I don’t know if she is missing, I have just been trying to track her down…no I don’t have a number for her, its just that one of her old neighbours said I should try social services….well is there anyone else who can give me any information… Goulburn- Australia Jackie tried not to cry as she packed all of her sons belongings into the suitcase “Mummy are you coming to Bobby’s house too?” Sam said “She didn’t know who Bobby was, she assumed that was the name of the foster parent who looked after him last time “No sweetheart….” Jackie said trying to fight back tears. She had made such a mess of her life again. She was already being watched by social services so when the police brought Sam back to the factory she was working at, that was the last straw. In a way it was a blessing in disguise and made her realize that no matter how hard she tried, she was never going to be able to look after her soon “Hey come here” Jackie said and she gently pulled Sam towards her and cried “I want you to know something?” Jackie said as she wiped her eyes “ok” Sam said as he looked at his mum “I love you very much…ok” Jackie said “Ok” Sam said and Jackie grabbed him and held him tight and cried “I’m afraid we have to get on the road” The social worker said and Jackie sighed and wiped her face. She was making the hardest decision, but she knew that there was no ending in sight for her current situation. She was behind in the rent, she couldn’t afford anyone to look after Sam and she didn’t have any qualifications to get a better job. “Here, his things are all packed” Jackie said as she closed the suitcase, zipped it and put it on the floor. The social work picked up the suitcase and began walking toward the door “Umm, can I ask you something?” Jackie said as she held Sams hand and they walked behind the social worker “Yes” The social worker said after turning around “Whoever looked after my son last time…can he please go back there?” Jackie said “I’m afraid that is not up to me, that is up to the placement officers” the social worker said “Please…he really liked it there…..please” Jackie said as the social worker sighed “Ok…ill see what I can do” the social worker said and Jackie smiled “Thank you” Jackie said. Even though her heart was breaking, she felt that what she was doing was right…and she hoped that the social worker will place Sam where he was before “Ok…you be a good boy..ok…and remember that I love you” Jackie said as she bent down and looked at Sam “I love you mummy” Sam said and Jackie hugged him one last time as tears ran down her cheeks “Come on Sam, we have to go now” the social worker said and Sam held onto her hand. Jackie watched as she picked Sam up and put him into the car seat then she closed the door and got into the car and drove off. Jackie watched until they the car was out of sight then she wiped her face, inhaled deeply, exhaled then went inside the house and closed the door Simpson Residence- Summer Bay Viv and Sandra hugged “I’m really going to miss you” Sandra said trying not to cry. Everything was still in a mess at home, and now her best friend was leaving “Im not going to be that far away..you can still come and visit” Viv said “I know…but its not going to be the same” Sandra said “Everything is going to be alright..ok?” Viv said and Sandra nodded “Coem on Viv, we have to get going” Reverend Newton said and smield “When I get there, ill call” Viv said as Steve hugged her “Good luck with your dad” Steve said “Thanks Steve…for everything…if it wasn’t for you helping…well im glad that we are friends” Viv said “You’re welcome” Steve said “Come on you two, you better head back to school” Grant said “Ok…don’t forget to call” Sandra said and hugged Viv again and watched as Viv walked towards the car with Grant “Well I guess this is it” Grant said and Viv hugged him and began to cry “I thought we agreed no tears” Grant said as Viv wiped a tear from her cheek “I know..but I’m really going to miss you” Viv said “Its not forever, you can come and visit” Grant said “Will you come and visit us?” Viv said “Of course…try and stop me” Grant said and winked as Viv got into the car “Here you go, Bobby made the cupcakes you like” Grant said as he waited for Viv to get into the car and gave her the bag of cupcakes. “Thank you for everything” Reverend Newton said and shook Grants hand “You’re welcome” Grant said and smiled as Reverend Newton got into the car and started the engine. Grant was happy to see Viv and Tammy going to be with their father, but they had become like his daughters so he was sad they were leaving.

I spent a lot of time in central and south America, and I settled in Brazil for a while teaching English” David said “By the way your mother spoke, I wasn’t expecting you back in Australia” Donald said “Neither was I but I felt homesick and thought I would come home and put my psychology degree to use” David said “But I spoke to your mother, she never said anything about you applying here” Donald said “There were a few options, mum thought I was going to take the opportunity in the city, but I thought I would give Summer Bay a try, its been a long time since I was here” David said and smiled “Well, I am glad you did” Donald said and David smiled “Would you mind if I stay with you a few days until I get a place of my own?” David said “A place of your own?

She had a test in the afternoon and even though she was prepared, she still wanted to make sure that there was nothing she had forgotten “Some last minute cramming for the test?” Pippa looked up to see one of her teachers, Dr Ian Routledge holding a sandwich and an apple “No, just making sure I haven’t forgotten anything” Pippa said and smiled “If you ever need any extra help, i'm always available..when Im not unpacking” Dr Ian Routledge “Oh yes that’s right, you moved into the Blaxland house” Pippa said “How did you know?” Dr Ian Routledge said curiously “One of the perks of living in such a small town, you know the comings and goings of all the town folk” Pippa said as she began to pack up her notes “Have you lived here long?” Dr Ian Routledge said “A few years, I used to live in the city until my husband’s company downsized, and we decided to move our family here” Pippa said “What does your husband do for a living?” Dr Ian Routledge said “He passed away two years ago” Pippa said “Oh, Im sorry…my wife passed away several years ago too” Dr Ian Routledge said “Sorry to hear that” Pippa said as Dr Ian Routledge stared into her eyes which made Pippa feel weird “Anyway, I better get going, I don’t want to be late for the test” Pippa said and she got up “Good luck” Dr Ian Routledge said “Thanks” Pippa said and left as Dr Ian Routledge watched her walk away… Pizza Palace- Summer Bay Grant walked over to the table with the pizza where Viv and Tammy were waiting for him “Here you go, we better eat it all before it gets cold” Grant said and Tammy giggled Emotional background music “So…have you made a decision about what you want to do?” Grant said as he picked up a slice of pizza.

I was told she lives here” Greg said “No, she moved a few months ago” the neighbour said “Do you know where she moved to?” Greg said “I don’t know..but if you ask me, its that poor little boy I feel sorry for” the neighbour said and Greg looked at her concerned “Why is there something wrong?” Greg said “Its not really my place to say” The neighbour said and walked back towards her door “To say about what?” Greg said as he followed her “Maybe you should try social services” the neighbour said and she closed the door leaving Greg feeling confused by what he just heard then he walked back to his truck, got in and drove away Background music ends General hospital- Summer Bay Background music- Stewart family theme Alf gently nudged Ailsa and gave her a cup of coffee and sat down next to her “Thanks” Ailsa said and drank some of the coffee “Did the doc come out?” Alf said and Ailsa shook her head no “He’s a little fighter Ails, hes going to be just fine” Alf said “This is still my fault..I should’ve known that there was something wrong with him” Ailsa said “It’s a rough time for all of us…no one is blaming you” Alf said suddenly feeling guilty. He knew that the rough time was due to what he did “Mr and Mrs Stewart” Ailsa looked up as the doctor walked over then her and Alf both stood up “Doc whats the matter with my son?” Alf said “Well we ran some tests, and unfortunately Duncan has bacterial meningitis” the doctor said “oh no” Ailsa said and put her hand over her mouth “How bad is it doc?” Alf said and he put his arm around Ailsa “Well we have started him on a strong course of antibiotics. Its good that you came in when you did because he was getting worse” the doctor said “Will he be ok?” Alf said “Well at the moment, I’m afraid I cant say since we just started the antibiotics. We are also giving him an antipyretic to reduce the fever” the doctor said “Can we see him?” Ailsa said “Yes of course, hes in room 18” the doctor said and pointed “Thanks doc” Alf said and he and Ailsa rushed to the room.

Bobby said she is on her way there” Pippa said as she stood by the dining table “Are you going to the hospital?” Steve said “Not tonight, ill wait and see what Bobby says when she gets back…I’m just going to change…dinner smells good” Pippa said and smiled then she walked towards the stairs as Ben walked into the house “I’m just going to quickly tidy up the toys in the spare room before dinner” Finlay said and smiled “Tell Sal dinner is ready” Steve said as Finlay walked away as Ben watched her Steve walked into the kitchen and turned off the fire. Bobby taught him how to make the pasta and this was the first time he was doing it. He drained the pasta and put it into a bowl and took it out of the kitchen and sat the bowl on the table “Didn’t you hear me the last time, you cant sit there” Steve said annoyed “What are you going to do to stop me?” Ben said and stood up and smirked. Steve could feel himself getting annoyed. He really wanted to punch Ben in the mouth “What is going on?” Pippa said as she walked back into the living room “Nothing, I was just telling Steve that dinner smells great, ill just get the glasses” Ben said and walked away “Steve what is the matter?” Pippa said “That guy is a jerk” Steve said “Steve” Pippa said “But he is” Steve said “He's Carlys husband” Pippa said “and she's been up herself since she married him” Steve said and Pippa sighed “Its been a long day, lets just have dinner…with no arguments…please” Pippa said and Steve sighed “Ok” Steve said and Pippa smiled and hugged him. He looked up to see Ben leaning on the wall and smirking at him… Barnett Residence- Summer Bay “Hold on let me just move this able over so your chair will pass through” Nick said as he rearranged some of the furniture in the living room as Julie looked around the house “Are you sure your uncle wont mind me staying here….its just until I can get my own place” Julie said “Of course not, we have two spare rooms” Nick said “Besides..I will get to see you everyday” Nick said and he winked at Julie “Let me just take your suitcase into the room, and ill be right back” Nick said and he disappeared down the hallway. Julie inhaled and exhaled. She couldn’t believe that this was happening to her. Even though this wasn’t her own place, she was out on her own…and she had a man who loved her “So” Nick said and he bent down next to Julie and kissed her cheek. How about I make us dinner” Nick said and kissed Julie’s cheek again and she nodded “Im really happy that you’re here” Nick said then he got up and pushed Julie towards the kitchen as the butterflies did summersaults in her stomach… General hospital- Summer Bay “He’s going to be fine…I know it” Bobby said and she put her hand gently on Ailsa’s arm “I should’ve known that there was something wrong..that temperature he had…I should’ve known” Ailsa said “Here you go Ails” Bobby turned around to see Alf walking into the hospital room and handed Ailsa a cup “Oh g’day Bobby, I didn’t know that you were here” Alf said and Bobby looked at him then at Ailsa “I better go..”Bobby said to Ailsa “Thanks for coming by” Ailsa said “No worries, did the docs say when Duncan can go home?” Bobby said “They don’t know yet so I guess he will be here for a few more days” Ailsa said “Alright, ill let Pippa know…I think she will come tomorrow when she comes to school” Bobby said “Call if you need anything” Bobby said as she walked to the door “Hes going to be fine” Bobby said as she turned and looked at Ailsa “Thanks” Ailsa said and Bobby smiled and walked away “Shes right you know…we Stewarts are fighters…Duncan is going to be right as rain” Alf said then he sat down next to Ailsa who exhaled. Alf rested his hand on Ailsa’s and she wrapped her fingers around his. Alf looked at their hands entwined and smiled to himself…this was definitely a blessing in disguise Background music- Frank and Bobby’s theme Bobby sighed as she walked along the corridor..she was not much of a fan of hospitals, she had lots of bad memories here. As Bobby walked towards the exit she turned right and noticed a room full of babies. She stopped and looked through the window. Some of the babies were sleeping, some were moving around and a couple were crying. Bobby watched as the nurse walked into the room and picked up the crying baby and held the baby to her chest. Bobby watched as the baby stopped crying and began to settle. Bobby put her head down as she was reminded of what didn’t happen for her “Which one is yours” Bobby looked up to see a man standing next to her “Oh, I’m not” Bobby was interrupted “Mine is the one in the blue and white stripped hat” He pointed excitedly “He’s beautiful” Bobby said and smiled as she looked at the little boy then she walked away from the window towards the elevator. She pressed the button and the doors open. She got in and pressed ground and as the door closed the tears fell down her cheeks…reminding her once again that she was alone… Goulburn- Australia “What are you doing out here on your own mate?” Sam turned around to see a policeman standing behind him “Where is your mummy?” the policeman said “I don’t know” Sam said “Come on, lets see if we can find her” The policeman said and he picked up Sam and waled away.. Barnett Residence- Summer Bay The toothpaste dropped on the floor and Julie struggled to reach it and sighed. Julie struggled and eventually she was able to grab the top and pick it up. She was her face and brushed her teeth, but when she tried to reach the towel on the railing it was too high and she nearly fell out of her chair. That is when reality began to set in. At home she never had any of these problems because her parents house was modified for her. Julie pulled some toilet paper and used it to wipe her face until it was dry and she wheeled herself out of the bathroom and into her bedroom. The bed was higher than the one she was used to at home and as she struggled, she couldn’t get herself onto the bed. Julie tried one more time but she ended up falling out of the chair and onto the floor then Nick came rushing in “Are you alright?” Nick said “Yeah, this bed is a little higher than mine” Julie said and smiled as Nick lifted her up and put her into bed then he bent down and kissed her “Im really happy” Julie said “Me too” Nick said and kissed Julie again “Its been a long day…get some sleep, ill see you in the morning” Nick said “Not if I see you in my dreams first” Julie said and kissed Nick one more time “Ill meet you there” Nick said and winked then he walked out of the bedroom and closed the door. Julie smiled and felt the butterflies in her stomach as she looked around the room and again reality hit her. The wardrobe door handles were high, so were the shelves in the room. They were nothing like she was used, it was going to be difficult. The smiled disappeared from Julies face as she wondered if she had made the right decision Nick walked into his room and closed the door thinking about what just happened. He really like Julie, but now she was his responsibility…he would have to do a lot for her because she wasn’t going to be able to do it for herself…reality hit him and he wondered if he was really ready for this kind of responsibility…. Background music end Two days later “Thanks for taking care of the shop” Alf said to Celia “The most important thing is that Duncan is getting better, and you are spending time with Ailsa” Celia said and Alf smiled “Yeah, these past two days have been great” Alf said “I told you not to give up..everything will be fine” Celia said “Thanks sis..I better get going” Alf said and he smiled and walked out of the shop. Just as he was about to get into his car, Debr’a car pulled up along side. Alf sighed “Ive been caling you” Debra said “Yeah sorry about that, Ive been spending time at the hospital, Duncan has meningitis” Alf said “Sorry to hear…I hope he gets better soon” Debra said “Thanks…anyway I better go, I need to get back to the hospital” Alf said as he began to start the engine “Will you call me?” Debra said “Yeah…ill call you later” Alf said “Ok..I love you” Debra said and Alf pretended he didn’t hear and drove off as Debra sighed and watched his car until it was out of sight. Just as Debra was about to drive off, she looked over to the shop window and noticed that Celia was looking at her. Debra started her engine and drove off….. High School- Summer Bay Donald drank his tea and put the empty cup into the bin just as there was a knock on the door. He walked over to his desk and picked up the folder for the orientation he was just about to do “Come in” Donald said when he looked up he got a surprise “David?” Donald said “Hello Uncle Donald” David Croft said “What are you doing here?” Donald said as he shook David’s hand “Are you not happy to see me?” David said “Yes of course this is a nice surprise..what brings you to Summer Bay?” Donald said as David put his arm around Lucinda “I am the new school guidance counselor” David Croft said and smiled

Julie turned around and Nick got a shock when he saw her “Julie” Nick said and he rushed over to the table “I have to head over to the resort” Bobby said and she took a pen from her pocket and wrote her office number on a napkin” Here is my number…ask Grant or Colleen to let you use the phone so you can call me. Ill call Ailsa and see what she says” Bobby said “Thanks Bobby” Julie said “No worries…Ill see you later” Bobby said and she walked out of the diner as Nick sat down “Hi” Nick said and smiled…he couldn’t believe it, Julie was actually here “I’m sorry I just turned up here…I had no other place to go” Nick said and he saw tears fill Julies eyes “What happened?” Nick said and he gently reached for Julies hand “Your letter..I only saw it today….well my parents hid it because Dad said he saw you with another girl” Julie said as Nick looked confused “What other girl…I told you that I loved you” Nick said “Well dad was driving by a few weeks ago and said he saw you hugging a girl.coming into here” Julie said as Nick tried to remember “Oh, I remember, Lucinda was almost mugged and she was shaken, and I was helping her into the diner that’s all…its you I want” Nick said and Julie exhaled and smiled “deep down, I knew that it was innocent, but my parents made me believe that you could never really love me” Julie said and a tear ran down her cheek.

I picked him up and knew something wasn’t right..they minute I got here, they rushed him away” Ailsa said and she put her hand up to her mouth “This is all my fault…I never should’ve taken him to the sitter…I should’ve taken him to the doctor this morning” Ailsa said as Alf sighed “What if something happens to him Alf…Ill never forgive myself…ill never forgive myself” Ailsa said and she started crying then instinctively Alf put his arms around Ailsa and she rested her head on his chest…and for the first time, in a long time they called a truce and were bonded.

  15. Thanks for reading Chapter 400 Simpson Residence- Summer Bay “Ill be in the room if you need me” Grant said and smiled as he looked at Viv then he walked into his bedroom and closed the door “Looks like you have really settled in here” Rev Newton said Emotional background music “Yeah, we like it” Viv said to her father as Tammy sat at the table doing some homework given to her from school “Look, Viv…I am really sorry about what happened at home…with your mum” Rev Newton said and Viv didn’t respond “I know I should have done more…there are no excuses..I am also to blame” Rev Newton said as Viv looked at him “I know that I promised that things would be better..I prayed and hoped that things would be better…but the truth is, they will never be better..and I let you down” Rev Newton said “What I’m trying to say is…I want my family back…I want you and me and Tammy to start again” Rev Newton said “That’s what you said last time” Viv said “Yes I know, and I was wrong, and I am sorry for that..but things are different now…I got a place..a home for me you and Tammy in Wollongong..I was appointed the clergy of the local church…and I want you and Tammy to come and live with me” Rev Newton said and Viv looked at Tammy “I know you have friends here…you can still see them..they can come and visit…but you and Tammy belong with me…please give me another chance” Rev Newton said as Viv sighed.

Shortly after Alec Gibson opened the door “Whats going on?” Alec said as he closed the door “Julie found the letter from Nick and now she has locked herself in the room and wont talk to me” Joanne said and Alec sighed. He knew it was a bad idea to hide the letter, but he wanted to protect his daughter “Julie love its me…open the door will ya” Alec said and he knocked on the door. After a few more attempts at knocking the door Julie finally opened it “ Sweetheart” Alec was interrupted “I’ve phoned a taxi” Julie said as she tried to roll herself out of the room with her suitcase on her lap “What is all this, where are you going?” Alec said “Away from this house. I'm sick of being treated like a child. I’m not a baby just because I sit in a wheelchair” Julie said as she wheeled herself forward the suitcase fell on the floor “Come on love we can talk about it” Alec said and he moved the suitcase out of the way “There is nothing to talk about, as long as I keep living in this house you are going to keep treating me like my feelings don’t matter “Sweetheart if this is because of Nick, I know what I saw…he just wants to hurt you” Alec was interrupted “All he wanted to know was why I stopped speaking to him..because of you, I never even gave him a chance to explain” Julie said as the taxi horn blew outside “Julie wait love, where are you going to go? You cant cope on your own..I was just trying to protect you that’s all” Joanne said as Julie picked up her suitcase and put it on her lap and rolled herself to the front door “Can you please put this case into the car” Julie said to the taxi driver who got out of the car and picked up the suitacase and took it to his car “Julie you are making a big mistake…YOU CANT SURVIVE WITHOUT US AND THIS HOUSE” Joanne said as Julie wheeled herself to the Taxi “The only mistake I made was believing you had my best interest at heart” Julie said and she wheeled herself to the taxi “Do you need some help getting in?” The taxi driver said “No thanks” Julie said and she managed to move herself from her wheelchair into the taxi. “Ill put the chair in the back” The taxi driver said as he closed the passenger door. He wheeled the chair to the boot but was struggling to close it, so Alec rushed forward and helped him “Julie..please..we’re sorry…we’ll do anything…just come back inside love” Alec said and Julie didn’t look at him. The taxi driver got into the car and started the engine as Alec sighed and moved away from the taxi “Where to?” the taxi driver said as he indicated and began to drive off “Summer Bay” Julie said and exhaled and smiled to herself as a tear ran down her cheek. Caravan Park- Summer Bay Finlay put Christopher down in the spare room. Pippa thought it would be easier for her to put him down of a nap instead of going up and down the stairs. Finlay quetly shut the door and was about to turn around when she almost bumped into Sally “Sorry Finlay” Sally said and ran up the stairs “Its alright” Finlay said and smiled then she walked into the living room to see Steve putting ghis school bag down “Hi..how was school?” Finlay said as she bent down to pick up some of Cristopher’s toys “Ok” Steve said as he opened the fridge and took out a can of coke “So, do you like living here?” Steve said “Yeah, its really nice being near the beach” Finlay said and smiled as Steve watched her. He thought she was really good looking and mature. She reminded him a bit of Narelle, who was also older. He liked older woman “If you want we could” Steve was interrupted by the door opening “G’day, Pippa asked me to fix the leak in the showers” Ben said and smiled “The outside showers” Steve said looking at Ben annoyed “Oh right…I better get to it then” Ben said and smiled again and winked at Finlay then he walked out of the house and his smile disappeared. He noticed two bikes outside, one must have belonged to Steve. Ben looked around and when he didn’t see anyone coming, he took his pen knife for his pocket, and pierced the tires of all the bikes. He smiled to himself as he heard the air escaping and whistled as he walked away… Bayside Diner- Summer Bay Bobby yawned and sighed as she walked into the kitchen “Has Grant come back yet?” Bobby said to Ailsa “No he hasn’t” Ailsa aside as she read some papers “What is that?” Bobby said “Just some houses for rent in the city” Ailsa said “For who?” Bobby said as she picked up a banana and started to peel it “For me, Duncan and possible Sandra” Ailsa said “I thought you wasn’t going to make any decisions yet” Bobby said “Bobby, any time I walk into the butchers, I can see people talking behind my back” Ailsa said “Stuff all those people” Bobby said and Ailsa smiled “Anytime I see Alf it hurts.. I cant live like this” Ailsa said and sighed. Bobby felt sad that she was losing a friend, but she understood “Remember what you said to me a long time ago when I wanted to leave Summer Bay?” Bobby said “That was different” Ailsa said “How was it different?” Bobby said “It just was” Ailsa said “I know what Alf did was wrong, I know how you feel, but I want you to really be sure about what you are doing before you make the decision” Bobby said “I am pretty sure i've made a decision…my solicitor sent Alf the divorce papers a few days ago…its time for me to move on” Ailsa said and Bobby sighed “I guess there is nothing else to say then…Ill see you later” Bobby said then she walked out of the diner. She knows that she should be supporting Ailsa but she was being selfish…she just didn’t want another person leaving her life. As Bobby walked towards the car she noticed a taxi driver put a suitcase next to a woman in a wheelchair “Hi” Bobby said as she walked closer “Hi Bobby” Julie said with a red face “Are you alright?” Bobby said concerned “No” Julie said “Come on, lets go to the diner and have some tea” Bobby said and Julie nodded her head. Bobby picked up the suitcase and Julie followed behind her…
