Peter and Dan were walking down the beach when Dan saw Leah walking towards them so he ran over to his wife, Peter’s mobile phone started to ring.

Peter pulled his mobile phone out of his pocket and answered the phone,

Peter: Detective Baker

Drew: It’s your son, you know the one who you said you would treat right.

Peter: Mate how’s it going, are you ok?. Shouldn’t you be in class.

Drew: Look it’s nearly Summer Holiday and I think it’s about time we spent some time together?

Peter: Mate that’s really good of course, when?

Drew: Well how about now, and you know pink shirts really don’t suit you.

Peter started to look round to see if Drew was around.

Drew: I thought detectives were good at noticing people following them.

Dan and Leah walk over to Peter.

Peter: Mate I have got to go I will ring you later.

Dan: Who’s that then mate, another woman?

Peter starts to laugh at what Dan has just said and replies by saying ‘You have got to be joking’.

Dan: Right mate me and Leah are going home, you still on for dinner tonight?

Peter: Yeah sure I have got to go to the station and see Jack Holden but I will be around about 6.

Leah: Pete you can bring a date if you want to.

Dan: Yeah you can mate.

Peter: If I had another woman which I don’t, I would not tell you. Maybe Leah not you.

Peter walked over to his car and pulled his mobile phone out of his pocket.

Peter: Drew it’s your dad.

Drew: Yeah I figured that.

Peter: I am free to meet you know, were ever you want?

Drew: how about your favourite spot in the bay ?

Peter: My favourite spot?

Drew: Yeah you know where you always go at night to clean your surf board?

Peter: Ok I will be their in five.

Peter puts down his mobile and gets in his car; he then drives off to meet Drew.

Peter arrives and notices Drew sitting down on some rocks.

Peter: I’m here mate

Drew: Well I thought it was about time we started to get to know each other more, when I last saw you I thought you was an idiot but the more I think about you, the more I want to get to know my real dad.

Peter: Sure mate the only reason I let you go boarding school is because you did’nt want to move in with me.

Drew: Can we start a fresh then dad?

Peter was really pleased by Drew calling him dad.

Belle and Matilda walk past and say ‘Hi detective Baker’

Peter replies by saying ‘hope you’re being good’

Belle and Matilda laugh at Peter and carry on walking.

Drew: Hey who was that on the right, she was gorgeous?

Pete: that was Matilda she is related to the Hunters.

Drew: who was the other fit girl?

Peter: Argh well you know your uncle Dan, my brother well it’s his ex wife’s daughter.

Drew: Dan’s daughter as well?

Peter: you seem very interested mate, you sure you want to know about me and my family?

Drew: Yeah, I wouldn’t be here other wise.

Peter: Well I will tell you what, I am going to Dan’s place for dinner and I will introduce you then. Come round about 6:45, knock on the back door.

Peter gets up and pulls 30 dollars out of his pocket and gives it to drew

Peter: here you go mate go buy what ever you want.

Drew takes the money off Pete and goes to hug Peter,

Peter is amazed at how his son is acting towards him.

Peter leaves Drew and walks towards Noah’s bar when he notices Amanda with Ryan.

Amanda: Well hello detective Baker I didn’t think you would stay in Summer Bay.

Peter: Well after the wedding I decided that family is the most important thing.

Amanda: May I ask why there is enormous grin on your face?

Peter: Would you and my nephew like to go for a drink?

Amanda: wow asking me on a date now Peter.

Peter: no just a friendly drink, you me and Ryan I have got some good news.

Ryan: Uncle Pete can I have a piggy back?

Amanda picks Ryan up and Places in on Peters back; Peter starts to run off with Ryan laughing and pulling on Peter’s hair.

Behind the wall off the Surf Club Drew watches Peter playing with Ryan and smiles smugly towards Peter as he enters the Surf Club.

Drew pulls out his phone and dial’s a number and say’s ‘It’s done, he is the Dumbest Person in town, no wonder he will not see us coming’ then Drew puts the phone down and walks away towards the beach.


What will Dan’s reaction be to Peter’s announcement?
