Chapter 1

Queensland – Gypsy’s P.O.V

“Lily have you got everything ready” I say walking into her room,

“Yes mummy, why do we have to leave?” she asks me as she walks over to me holding onto her favourite doll tears in her eyes,

“Oh Lily we’ve talked about this, I know you don’t want to leave right now but I promise you that you will like it down in Summer Bay you’ll make lots of new friends and get to spend more time with your Grandma Irene and Auntie Hayley and Uncle Noah remember I told you that they are moving back from Paris so you won’t be lonely and mummy and daddy will look after you” I say lifting her into my arms,

“Gypsy, Lily come on we need to leave now” I hear the voice of my husband Will shout upstairs to me,

“Coming Will just let me check that everything we need is out” I shout down to him as I check inside each room making sure that we had got everything,

“all sorted?” he asks me as he joins me at the top of the stairs I nod my head moving towards him, “come here princess” he says taking Lily from my arms,

“thanks” I say to him, she was starting to become to heavy for me to carry her around all the time now that she was five, its really weird how they grow up so quickly before I know it she will be in high school and getting married.

“Ready?” Will says to me as he sits down in the driving seat of the car as we watch the removal vans head off in front of us,

“I’m ready, are you ready Lily?” I ask her turning around to face her where she is sat in the backseat playing with her doll,

“Yeah” she says softly looking up at me before getting back to playing with her doll,

“Summer Bay here we come” Will says as he starts the engine,

“let’s hope that they are ready for the return of the Smith family” I say smiling at him.

Paris, France - Hayley’s P.O.V

“This flight is going to be a nightmare, thank god we had the cash to upgrade to first class I don’t think I could manage in economy class the way our little munchkin has been recently” I say to my husband while rubbing my protruding stomach as the baby continues to kick,

“bubs kicking again” he says resting his hand on my stomach,

“doesn’t stop” I say softly resting against him,

“Can all first class passengers of the Qantas flight to Sydney Australia please make their way forward to the gate ready to board please, thank you” the announcer says over the PA system,

“that’s us, you ready to get back home” Noah says taking my hand and helping me up,

“I’m more than ready” I say smiling as we make our way towards the gate ready to board our flight back to the place I will always call my home, to the place that me and Noah have always wanted to raise our family Summer Bay might have all its drama but you couldn’t ask for a nicer bunch of people and when your brother and sister in law are returning with your niece as well it made our decision to move back a lot easier.

Summer Bay - Irene’s P.O.V

“Irene I think you’ve done enough cleaning, the place is spotless and this is the kids that you have helped raised we are talking about kids that think of you as their mum they are not going to care if the place is a tip or if its spotless they will just be glad to see you again” Barry says from the couch as I start to hoover the living room carpet,

“I guess your right darl but I’m just so nervous I mean I haven’t seen them forever and I just want to make things perfect, you know we will have to throw a party” I say shutting down the hoover and sitting down besides my fiancé,

“yeah well maybe you should wait until the jetlag from Hayley and Noah’s flight and the long car journey for Gypsy, Will and Lily has warn off before we throw the party love” he says wrapping his arm around me,

“Yeah maybe your right” I say resting my feet across the couch as I rest against him daydreaming about seeing them all again as I try to settle the nerves in the pit of the stomach hoping that I would receive a good reaction from them about my impending marriage to Barry.
