the next bit


Matilda and Rueben walked along the beach, letting the waves lap around their feet. Matilda sighed and looked up to the sky, as if asking the universe to solve all her problems.

“I want to tell him,” Mattie said, looking at Rueben, “But I can’t bear to even be around him, let alone tell him.”

Rueben put his arm around Mattie, pulling her closer.

“You should tell him,” Rueben said, “He needs to know…”

“I know,” Mattie whispered, “I just can’t, I just don’t know what to do in this whole situation…”

Rueben nodded, understanding her concern for how Ric would handle her news. They walked in silence for a few minutes, all the while Rueben thinking of what he could do to help Mattie. All of a sudden a thought came to him.

“Hey,” he said, stopping in his tracks, causing Mattie to do the same, “I have an idea that might cheer you up.”

“Oh yea?”

“Yea. Let’s go for a drive, a nice drive out to see the countryside. The fresh air would do you good.”

Mattie laughed.

“Rueben, I don’t have a license and neither do you!” she said, smiling, as if she thought he was joking.

“Mattie, I don’t need a bit of plastic to tell me that I can drive, I mean how hard can it be? My old man’s Ute is parked up there,” he said, pointing to the car park outside the diner, “and I have nicked the spare keys this morning!”

Mattie shook her head slowly, doubt written all over her face.

“I don’t know, that’s illegal.”

“And whose going to catch us out in the country? Come on!” Rueben said, pulling Mattie up the beach. Mattie smiled.

“I guess, it would be kinda fun…” she said, looking at the car longingly.

“Well let’s do it then!” Rueben yelled, running up the beach with Mattie close behind.


“I can’t believe you talked me into this!” Martha said, heaving one of Jack’s boxes through the door. Jack hurried over and took the heavy box from Martha’s hands. Martha frowned at him.

“What!” Jack exclaimed, “It’s the gentlemanly thing to do!”

Martha’s frown turned into a smile at Jack’s sweetness.

“Now there’s a smile I haven’t seen in a while!” Jack said, taking the box into his new bedroom. Martha smiled again, this time to herself, just as Jack emerged from the room. She went over and picked up another box, but again Jack insisted he take it from her. Almost as soon as he got his hands on it, the bottom of the box collapse, sending all Jack’s possessions crashing to the floor. He and Martha looked down at the mess, both silent before both bursting into hysterics.

“And that is why I carry the boxes,” Martha laughed as she bent down to help Jack pick up his things. Suddenly their eyes met, holding them in an intense moment, neither daring to be the one to break the eye contact. After a moment a voice jolting them back into reality.

“Hello,” Alf called, “Just thought I’d come and lend a hand… What are you two doing down there?”

“Bottom of the box collapsed,” Jack said, standing up, his eyes still on Martha. Martha looked away, blushing furiously.

“Ah flamin’ boxes, not as strong and sturdy as they used to be, you mark my words!” Alf said, but neither Jack nor Martha were listening.

Their only thoughts were on each other …


1 hour later : 12 o’clock

Brad sat at the bar and sculled another beer. He waved his empty cup at Alf, who was serving at the bar.

“Pour me another one mate,” Brad said.

Alf raised a brow at him.

“Do you really think that’s wise mate?” he asked, concerned.

“I think that’s not something you should worry about,” Brad said, holding out his cup, “Pour me another one please!”

At that moment Brad’s phone beeped.

“Oh what now?” he asked himself, pulling out his phone and reading the message.

I found out your address from an old mate. I’m on my way over with Corey.


Brad hopped up quickly. He had to get home and explain it all to Sally before Jenny got there.

Stupid Alf :D

I bet Reuben and Mattie get into some trouble...

I'm wondering what Mattie has to say to Ric?

Anyway, great update. And please update soon :)

EDIT: Maybe Reuben and Mattie have a car accident and one of them is the death one?
