Stephen is in Wayne's room at the hospital. Wayne is lying in
bed, awake. Stephen tells him apologetically that if he'd stopped
to listen, none of this would have happened. Wayne, though assures
him that it's not his fault - from what he saw, the guy
was a dead ringer. Stephen muses, "Well, if there's anything
I can do..." At that moment, Gordon comes in and asks how
the patient is this morning. Wayne replies that he's getting there.
Stephen tells Gordon that he's just been explaining how Evans
conned them - and what a fool he was for not realising it. Gordon
points out that they've all been fooled. Wayne tells
them that he doesn't blame anyone; he's just glad they finally
know who's who! Gordon, though, says, "Actually, there is
still one little mystery: a young lady has turned up, claiming
to be your fiancée." Wayne, looking surprised, exclaims,
"Julie! Is she here?" Gordon replies that she's outside
and he asks if he should get her. Wayne smiles, "Please!"
and Gordon heads out to the corridor. Stephen says to the patient
that he supposes he should offer congratulations. Gordon comes
back in with Julie, who has a smile on her face. She says a warm,
"Hi, Wayne," and sits down on his bed. Wayne comments
that he wasn't expecting her for a few days, but she explains
that she came early. She then asks him how he is, and he smiles
that he'll survive. Gordon suggests to Stephen that they pop back
later, and the two men leave the room. Wayne smiles at Julie and
tells her that he's glad she's there - he couldn't think of anyone
he'd rather see. Julie kisses him tenderly.
A short time later, Stephen is sitting with Gordon and Barbara
out in the corridor, and Gordon comments that Wayne was obviously
very thrilled to see Julie. Barbara retorts that he can't blame
her - she's a very attractive girl; she doesn't think Julie is
the type to go spinning stories or taking advantage of anyone
- unlike Gary Evans... Stephen asks, "When did all this happen?"
Gordon explains that it was while Wayne was away - they met a
few weeks ago. Barbara adds, "Julie was a waitress in a restaurant,
Wayne went in there two or three times and that was that, apparently.
She arrived on the doorstep this morning." Stephen comments
that Wayne was pretty quick off the mark, but Gordon points out,
"Well, after Karen, I'm not surprised he looked for somebody
younger." Barbara adds grimly, "After Karen, I would
suppose he'd look for someone more sensible." She
then suggests that they hope things work out better than they
did with Katie. Gordon comments that they seem happy enough at
the moment; maybe it will.
In his hospital bed, Wayne is explaining to Julie, "When
she saw me and thought I was Evans, she panicked and pulled the
trigger. Lucky for me she's a terrible shot!" Julie, though,
points out worriedly, "She's not too bad..."
Wayne admits, "True." He then goes on that he supposes
Gordy and Barbara wondered who she was for a while, and Julie
retorts, "Yeah..." She then asks, "Why didn't you
tell them about us?" Wayne, though, explains that he didn't
get the chance; as soon as he walked in the door, he
had people throwing accusations at him left, right and centre.
Julie asks, "About the money?" Wayne just nods and tells
her, "I can understand why you're pretty upset." He
then reaches out his hand and strokes her cheek, saying, "No
more long face. I told you, it's all been sorted out now."
Julie, though, tells him glumly, "It's not that. When I turned
up at that mansion of yours, it was just so big I thought I had
the wrong place at first. I felt like a stray cat!" Wayne
smiles, "Well, from now on, it's as much your home as mine.
'Til we get our own, that is." Julie looks down and asks,
"Why didn't you tell me your parents were so rich?"
Wayne explains that he didn't think it was important. He asks,
"Is it?" Julie, still looking worried, just says, "I
don't suppose so..."
Caroline is looking out through the window at the Morrell apartment
when Amanda startles her by asking if she can get her a coffee
or something. Caroline jumps, and Amanda quickly tells her to
stop worrying - Gary won't be able to get in there without being
spotted by the police force. Caroline points out grimly, "They
probably want him to come back - that way they'll get
their arrest. Too bad if they get their timing wrong." A
key suddenly turns in the front door and Caroline looks at it
in panic. It's Stephen who comes in, though, and Caroline snaps,
"Oh, Stephen, couldn't you knock first?" Stephen stares
at her and says he's sorry. Caroline, though, tells him, "No,
I'm sorry - I didn't mean to snap. I'm glad you're back."
Putting his arms around his ex-wife, Stephen assures her, "The
place is well-guarded. You've got nothing to worry about."
Changing the subject, Amanda asks how Wayne is, and Stephen replies,
"Coming along - in more ways than one. Apparently, he's engaged
- a young girl from Melbourne!" Caroline exclaims that that's
wonderful! Stephen goes on, "She turned up at the Hamilton
house this morning. She got quite a shock to hear he was in hospital."
Amanda muses that she can imagine. Caroline sits down and sighs,
"It's all my fault. If only I could see him; make
it up to him, somehow..." Suddenly appearing to think of
something, she asks, "Could you take me over there, Stephen?
It would be too much of a risk if I went on my own, but I'd be
safe with you. Please?" Stephen sits down next to
her and tells her, "Alright. After lunch, OK?" Caroline
Gordon, Barbara and Julie are all in Wayne's room at the hospital.
Wayne asks Barbara if she can put Julie up in the guest room.
Barbara smiles and tells him that she was just about to suggest
it herself! Julie hesitantly says she has to go to Central Station
- her bag's in a locker there - but Gordon tells her that they'll
pick it up on the way. Julie, still looking worried, insists that
she'd be happy to find a room in a hotel, but Barbara tells her
that she wouldn't hear of it - and besides, the two of them have
a lot to talk about - like wedding arrangements; four weeks isn't
very much time to get organised! Julie murmurs, "No..."
Gordon then tells Wayne that he thinks it's time they let him
get some rest, and Barbara says she agrees. She then tells Julie
that she'll bring her back later this afternoon. Julie thanks
her. Turning to Wayne, she tells him tenderly that she'll see
him later and she and Barbara head out. Alone with his son, Gordon
says to Wayne, "You know what they say to me about over-doing
things..." Wayne tells him that he doesn't have to worry,
and Gordon murmurs, "Good. I'll see you soon." He goes
to follow the others out of the room, but Wayne suddenly calls,
"Dad," and Gordon turns to look at him again. Wayne
asks, "Please try and make it easy for Julie. She's had a
pretty tough upbringing. I think she's feeling a bit out of her
depth." Gordon smiles, "You leave it to me," and
he goes. Wayne closes his eyes.
At the Morrell apartment, Caroline asks if toasted sandwiches
will be OK for lunch, and Stephen smiles that they're fine. There's
suddenly a knock at the front door, and Amanda goes to answer
it, but Caroline quickly gasps, "No! Don't! It could be Gary."
Stephen, though, tells her to calm down - she's making them all
jumpy; it could be anybody. He goes and opens the door
to find a young man standing there. He asks if Mrs. Morrell is
there, and Stephen says, "Yeah, sure, Joe. Come in."
He then explains to Caroline and Amanda, "It's Joe - the
company courier." Joe walks in and, approaching Caroline,
tells her that he has a letter there for her, from Mr. Hamilton.
He hands it over and Caroline asks, "Wayne?" Joe nods,
"Yeah." Stephen asks, "From the hospital?"
Joe, though, explains, "No - he rang me and asked me to meet
him in the city." Indicating the envelope, he adds, "Just
gave me that and rushed straight off. Said something about being
late for a conference." Caroline opens the envelope and,
looking at the contents, murmurs, "It's from Gary..."
A short time later, Joe has gone. Amanda is handing her mother
a glass of scotch, telling her that it'll help her calm down.
Stephen comes in through the front door and Amanda asks him, "Did
you show them the letter?" Stephen replies that they're sending
it over to Forensic and stepping-up security. Caroline just mutters,
"As if that's going to help." Amanda asks her
father what Gary said, and Stephen tells her, "Well,
apparently, he knows the apartment's under surveillance. Said
that's not going to stop him from..." He breaks off, but
Caroline stares at him and snaps, "Well don't leave out the
best part." Turning to Amanda, she goes on, "Once
Wayne gets out of hospital, we won't be able to pick one from
the other." Stephen tells her, "It's just a bluff to
get you scared," but Caroline retorts, "Round one to
Gary; I'm petrified." Stephen goes and sits down
next to her as he assures her, "Darling, he has half the
police force after him - he's not going to be free for long."
Caroline asks, "And in the meantime?" Stephen points
out, "And in the meantime, Wayne is still in hospital. There's
nothing Evans can do." Amanda hands her mother the drink
again and says, "Here, try this now." Caroline takes
Barbara, Gordon and Julie have arrived back at Dural. Gordon
suggests to Barbara that she make them some lunch while he takes
Julie's bag up to her room, but Barbara tells him that she'd
better do that - they don't want him straining up those stairs.
Gordon, though, insists that he's fine; besides - and he holds
up the suitcase - Julie is a very light traveller. Julie explains
apologetically that it's all she's got - waitressing doesn't pay
very much... She looks down at the floor, and Gordon quickly says,
"I'm sorry - I didn't mean..." He then adds that he'll
be back in a minute and he heads off upstairs with the case. Indicating
the lounge room, Barbara suggests to Julie that they get the weight
off their feet. She adds that Julie must be exhausted after all
her travelling. She then tells Julie to take a seat and tell her
what she'd like for lunch. Julie says hesitantly, "I'm not
really hungry, Mrs. Hamilton." Barbara quickly insists, "Call
me Barbara. Please!" She invites the girl to sit
down and she herself sits down on the couch next to her. She then
says, "I would like to apologise for my cool reception
this morning - but now we know the whole story, we'd like you
to feel very much at home." Julie replies hesitantly, "Thanks...
Barbara." Barbara asks her, "Tell me, where do your
family live? I'd like to ring them and talk about the wedding
arrangements - and naturally, we would help with the cost of the
reception." Looking worried, Julie retorts, "No, I'm
afraid you can't. You see, my parents are both dead; I'm the only
one." Barbara, looking shocked, cries, "I'm so sorry.
I didn't realise--" Julie interrupts her and assures her,
"It's OK. I'm used to being on my own. I know it sort of
sounds strange but I prefer it that way."
Charlie is in the kitchen at the country house, trying to light
a match in order to get the wood stove going. She eventually succeeds,
but then blows the flame out and cries in frustration, "Oh,
no wonder they invented electricity!" She suddenly notices
Tim standing in the doorway behind her, a smile on his face, and
she laughs, "Oh, hello, Tim!" Tim recalls, "Charlie,
isn't it?" and Charlie smiles, "That's right - we met
in Ceedum!" Tim remembers that she asked him all that stuff
about Leigh. Charlie assures him, "Simply trying to help,
darling - and I couldn't do that without knowing a little about
her, could I?!" Tim concedes, "I guess not!" Charlie
then tells him that she'd offer him a cup of tea, but she's having
trouble boiling the kettle. Tim walks over to the stove and starts
fiddling with it. As he does so, he asks Charlie when she got
in, and she tells him that it was early this morning; she thinks
he'd just left for school. She then asks him what he's doing there
now, and he explains that he's got a half-day - the teachers
are on strike. Charlie smiles, "Aren't you the lucky
one!" Tim removes a couple of medium-sized logs from the
stove and explains, "I reckon you need some kindling in this!"
A puzzled expression on her face, Charlie asks, "Some what?"
and Tim explains, "Some small stuff. These won't catch in
a million years!" He heads outside just as David
and Leigh are coming in. Charlie immediately smiles at her host,
"Hello, darling!" David asks her politely what she's
doing there, and she explains that she thought she'd tag along
with Katie and Heather. David asks if Katie is there too, and
Charlie smiles that she certainly is. She then turns to Leigh
- who's glaring at her - and says, "Hello, Leigh." Leigh
just mutters a blunt, "Hello." David asks Charlie how
long she's staying for, but Charlie tells him, "It's hard
to say, actually - I've made Mike and Heather an offer."
David asks, "What kind of offer?" and Charlie
smiles, "I've bought their share of the market garden. You
and I are partners!" A look of shock appears on David's face
as Charlie waltzes over to the sink and goes on, "I'm quite
looking forward to it, actually - although there are
one or two things around here I've always wanted to modernise."
Indicating the stove, she adds, "The first thing I want to
do is replace that big lump of iron with a nice new microwave!"
David, though, suddenly snaps, "Mike and Heather only had
a share of a market garden. Not the house or the farm."
Charlie asks innocently, "Aren't they all the same?"
David retorts, "No, they're not. I think we'd better sit
down and straighten a few things out..."
Tim is walking along outside, some bits of wood in his hand.
Leigh approaches him and demands, "Did you know she was coming
down?" Tim asks, "Who?" and Leigh retorts, "Charlie.
She's a nosy, pompous old bag." Tim points out that she won't
be there for long, but Leigh asks, "Didn't she tell
you? She's invested in the market garden. By the sounds of it,
she'll be here for ever - that is, until she gets tired
of it. Personally, I couldn't think of anything worse."
Tim, though, retorts, "She's not that bad. Anyway, what would
Dave do if he's got no one to help him with the garden? He'd have
to sell-up, and you know where that leaves us. I want
to stay here, Leigh, Charlie or no Charlie." Leigh
reluctantly concedes, "Alright." Tim pleads, "Don't
give her a hard time, OK?" Leigh tells him pointedly, "I
wouldn't dream of it..." She walks off, leaving
Tim looking concerned.
Beryl is talking on the 'phone in the lounge room at her house.
She's saying, "But I want to help the kids. I feel
it's the least I can do after all the trouble I've caused."
Diane Bull, at the other end, tells her, "Mr. Wilkins understands
that, Beryl." Beryl points out that she admitted she was
wrong about Jamie. Diane says, "I know. I tried to tell him
but I'm afraid he wouldn't agree." Beryl mutters, "Well,
that looks like the end of it, then." Diane says she's sorry,
and Beryl thanks her for trying. Diane adds that she'd better
go and she hangs up. As Beryl does likewise, there's a sudden
frantic knocking on her front door. She goes to answer it, but
there's then suddenly more knocking at the back door.
She calls to the person out the front, "Just a minute."
She heads out to the kitchen, opens the back door and finds Leanne
standing there! She's holding a packed suitcase and she asks if
she can come in. Beryl assures her, "Of course." The
girl walks in and puts her case on the kitchen table, saying as
she does so that she's sorry she didn't keep in touch - she meant
to, but things kept happening. Beryl smiles that she's forgiven!
Looking at the suitcase, she then asks, "You doing some travelling?"
Leanne explains guiltily, "Actually, I've just moved out
and I was wondering if I could stay here for a while,
if that's alright." There's suddenly more knocking at the
front door. Leanne jumps and, running behind Beryl, she cries,
"Oh God - they've found me already. You've got to say I'm
not here - please..."
A couple of minutes later, Beryl is telling Leanne that it was
only some boy scouts on a bottle drive. Leanne smiles nervously,
"Thank heavens." Picking the suitcase up from the table
and putting it on the floor, Beryl asks her who was she expecting,
adding that if she's in some kind of trouble... Leanne sits down
and insists, "No, I'm not - really." Beryl
points out, "Leanne... first you sneak around to the back
door, then you nearly jump out of your skin when someone knocks
on the front door." Leanne, looking down at the
table, explains, "I moved out of the flat a while back and
I went into a house with a whole bunch of kids. They said it would
be fun but it was awful. When I told them I was leaving, they
reckoned I was copping out." Beryl tells her, "You had
every right to leave if you wanted to," but Leanne sighs,
"Yeah, but they got nasty about it. I ended up having to
sneak out this morning before anyone was up." Beryl asks
her, "What made them think you were copping out?" Leanne
says nervously, "You know - the rent and that..." Beryl
asks, "You owe them money?" Leanne replies, "No,
I... they reckoned it was difficult to get someone to take the
room over." Beryl tells her, "Well, if that's the sort
of people they are, you're better off here." She
then asks Leanne if she's working. Leanne admits, "No, but
I'll pay board, though." Beryl, though, assures her, "No
you won't - not until you get a job. It'll be good to have the
company." She then offers the girl some lunch and Leanne
thanks her. As she stands up, Beryl doesn't notice the worried
expression on her face...
Caroline and Stephen are standing in Wayne's room at the hospital
and Caroline is telling Wayne that that she's sorry; she can't
think of anything else to say. Wayne assures her, "Don't
worry about it. The biggest shock was being told we were engaged
- how was I supposed to explain that to my real fiancée?!"
Stephen asks Wayne if he's heard how Julie is settling in, as
she seemed rather shy about meeting everyone this morning. Wayne
explains that she's a bit intimidated by their money and all the
trappings. He adds, "Still, Gordy and Barbara will make sure
she's alright. I would just have liked to have been there when
she turned up, that's all." Caroline smiles, "Well,
she certainly won't be without a friend - at least, not when I'm
around." Wayne assures her that he's not trying to make her
feel guilty, but Caroline insists, "I want to help
- for both of you." A nurse suddenly walks into
the room and tells Wayne that there's a Julie Webb to see him.
Wayne smiles, "Bring her in!" The nurse points out,
"Doctor did say you shouldn't have any more visitors today,"
but Stephen explains, "We're just leaving," and Wayne
pleads, "Come on, be a sport," and so the nurse smiles,
"OK, just one more." She leaves the room again. Caroline
asks Stephen if he minds if she has a quick word with Julie before
they go - just a sort of woman-to-woman introduction. Stephen
tells her to go ahead, and Caroline tells Wayne that she won't
keep her too long. Wayne smiles, "Better not!" and she
goes. Alone with Stephen, Wayne says quietly, "I know she
means well, but I wish she'd stop feeling so guilty about the
shooting." Stephen, though, explains that it's not just that:
Evans sent her a death threat, and she's convinced he means it,
too. Wayne looks shocked.
Julie is sitting out in the corridor. She stands up as Caroline
says to her, "It's nice to meet you." Julie says, "You
too." Caroline goes on, "I suppose by now you've heard
that it was I who, um..." Julie responds, "I heard it
was an accident..." Caroline tells her, "Oh
yes, it was, but if it weren't for me, he would have
been around to help you when you arrived." Julie just looks
down at the ground. After a moment, Caroline continues, "Wayne's
told me about your, er..." She pauses before explaining,
"What I meant to say is, if you ever want a friend or you
want some advice about anything, let me know." Julie asks
suspiciously, "Wayne apologised for me, did he?" Caroline,
though, quickly assures her, "No, it was nothing like that.
It was just that I've been in exactly the same situation. I fell
very much in love with a man who was, well, less well-off than
I was, and he could never forget it. That was the end - for both
of us. I'd hate to see that happening to you and Wayne."
Julie just stares at her, nervously. At that moment, Stephen emerges
from Wayne's room and says to Julie, "Hello again."
Julie just murmurs, "Hello," and heads towards the door
through which Stephen has just exited. Caroline calls, "Don't
forget, I'm only a 'phone call away." Julie stops and looks
at her and then heads into the room. In there, she asks Wayne,
"Are you feeling better?" Wayne smiles, "Now you're
here, yeah." Julie kisses him and then explains, "Barbara
brought me over. She's gone off to buy some things to brighten
up my room." Wayne smiles, "Getting the royal treatment,
eh?" Julie nods, "Yeah," and adds, "Your parents
have been wonderful." She then goes on, "I just met
Caroline outside. She's very glamorous, isn't she." Wayne
insists, "She wants to make you feel at home, too."
Julie murmurs, "Yeah, s'pose..." Wayne, sensing the
note of worry in her voice, asks gently, "What?" Julie
sighs, "Well, how will I know they don't all think I'm not
good enough for you? They're probably just being nice for your
sake." Wayne, though, tells her softly, "Don't be silly."
Julie goes on, "What about you? You're used to going
out with models and socialites and I'm just a waitress."
Wayne assures her, "Julie, you're not just a waitress. You're
a very beautiful lady. You're completely honest with me. I never
got on that well with models and socialites." Julie smiles
nervously and says, "Shouldn't let the money thing get to
me, should I?" Wayne shakes his head and tells her, "What
we have is much too special to let bits of paper spoil it, right?"
Julie smiles, "Yeah."
Tim, David and Leigh are finishing lunch in the kitchen at the
country house, while Charlie does some clearing away. David thanks
her for the eats, but Charlie assures him that it's nothing compared
with what they'll be having once the microwave's in! David, though,
mutters, "Wouldn't hold my breath." He then tells Tim
that if he's got no more school for the rest of the day, he can
give him a hand out in the garden. The two of them head out. When
they've gone, Leigh indicates the plates still on the table and
says to Charlie, "I'll finish, if you like."
Charlie mutters, "Fine," and she returns to the sink.
After a moment, Leigh says to her, "David's not going to
let you get a microwave, you know?" Charlie, though, retorts,
"We'll see. I think I'll be able to talk him--" She
breaks off as she suddenly discovers a frog in the saucepan she's
holding, and she yells out and drops the pan in the sink! She
cries, "Oh my goodness, how did that get in there?"
Leigh asks, "What is it?" and Charlie snaps, "A
frog. It nearly scared the life out of me." Leigh
asks, "Are you alright?" Charlie suddenly stares at
her suspiciously and Leigh asks, "What's the matter?"
As she 'realises' what Charlie is implying, she goes on, "Now,
don't look at me. We get frogs in here all the time."
Charlie mutters, "And I suppose this one just happened to
hop in there by itself - and put the lid back on?"
Leigh says 'innocently', "Well, I put the lid on,
but I don't remember seeing anything." Charlie growls,
"You certainly haven't changed, have you, Leigh?" Leigh
retorts, "As far as I'm concerned, you'd save everyone
a lot of hassles if you just invest your money and go back where
you belong - where there aren't any creepy crawlies." Charlie,
though, snaps, "Don't think you can bully me this time, young
lady. I came down here to give David my full support and it's
going to take more than you to stop me."
Beryl is doing some baking in her kitchen. Leanne is helping
her, and Beryl asks her, "What happened to that party job
you had?" Leanne explains that she gave it up - it was boring.
She adds that Beryl doesn't have to worry - she'll get another
one as soon as she can. Beryl tells her, "I'm sure you will."
She then adds, "I wish you'd relax - you've been on edge
ever since you got here." Leanne says she's sorry.
Beryl smiles, "At least you got rid of that weird punk hairstyle!"
The 'phone suddenly starts ringing, and a look of concern crosses
Leanne's face as Beryl answers it. She tells the person at the
other end, "Yes she is. I'll get her for you." However,
the 'phone suddenly goes dead and Beryl says, "Hello? Hello?"
a couple of times before hanging up. She heads back into the kitchen,
where Leanne asks, "Who was it?" Beryl replies, "Er,
someone for you. They hung up." Leanne asks, "Boy or
a girl?" and Beryl tells her, "A girl. Why?" Leanne,
looking panicky, cries, "Tracy. Now they know where I am."
Beryl tells her, "Leanne, if they're so worried about the
rent, I'll pay them." Leanne, though, quickly assures
her, "No, no, it's OK - I'm just a little nervous about facing
them again, that's all..." Beryl looks concerned.
David and Charlie are sitting at the table in the kitchen at
the country house as Leigh stands by the stove with baby Shane,
listening. David asks Charlie if she knows what she's letting
herself in for - setting up a market garden is a lot of hard yakka.
Charlie smiles that she knows and she's looking forward to the
challenge - and besides, it's something Patricia would have wanted.
David concedes, "Alright." He then goes on, "I
don't mind you staying here, but I think we should clear the air
about a few things. I want the final say on how the money's spent.
No offence, Charlie, but I can't see it wasted on a microwave
when we haven't had a chance to look at a greenhouse or a sprinkler
system." Tim suddenly comes in and puts a box down on the
table as Charlie concedes, "You're the expert, darling."
Tim asks, "Smoko ready?" but David points out, "You've
not long ago had lunch!" Tim reminds him, "I've
been working hard, haven't I?" and Charlie adds, "He's
a growing lad, David!" Tim smiles that he's glad someone
understands. David picks up the box and asks what's in there.
Tim explains that they're slaters - he had to collect them for
a nature assignment. He then asks if he can finish off the sweet
in the 'fridge. David comments, "We haven't got much say
in it, have we?!"
That night, in the lounge room at Dural, Barbara hands Julie
a cup of coffee and comments that she's sure the girl has a lot
of friends who'd like to come up for the wedding. Julie murmurs,
"A couple, maybe," and Barbara tells her that they're
very welcome to stay - they have plenty of rooms in the house,
not to mention the flat. Julie, looking worried, says, "Thanks,
but I don't really care for the big weddings. I reckon they're
a bit impersonal." Barbara smiles, "Fine. And to tell
you the truth, I agree." Gordon suddenly walks into the room
and says, "Julie, I meant to tell you before: your father
called when you were out." He sits down as Barbara says in
surprise, "Father?" Gordon explains, "Yes,
he sounds like a nice bloke. We had quite a nice long chat."
Barbara tells him that it must be some sort of joke, but Gordon
laughs, "I hope not!" He adds, "I asked him to
stay. He said he'd be here in a few days." Julie, looking
nervous, mutters, "I'm sorry, I've got a headache. I think
I'll go to bed," and she dashes out of the room. Gordon asks
Barbara, "What's going on?" Barbara tells him, "I'm
not 100% sure myself - except that earlier on she told
me that both her parents were dead." Gordon looks
at her in surprise.
Beryl's house is in darkness when a shadow suddenly appears out
the front and someone opens the lounge room window and climbs
in. They have a torch and are wearing black. They bend down by
the shelves by the window and apparently start looking for something.
Beryl suddenly emerges from her room and says, "Is that you,
Le--?" She gasps in shock as she turns the light on and finds
the intruder there. The person runs out, leaving Beryl standing
there in horror.
