STORY LAST UPDATED ON 05/02/2003
Written in Australia. Sovereign Hill, Ballarat, is a real place in the state of Victoria in Australia.
I didn't care about working in the New York Bakery. But that was what kept me in Sovereign Hill, so I had to give it my all. Especially since I really didn't have anywhere else to go. Joan certainly didn't want me back, and I didn't have anymore Camberwell relatives.
I was here to try to get Alison Bridges to be my mother. Sure, she'd been very non-committal at our first meeting, not even showing any signs that she recognised me, my name or anything else. It would take time.
But I had to pursue. I had a purpose. I had determination. I couldn't fail this time. I had to forget I was a vulture. That would be difficult, but it was something I had to try to do. Besides, if I had to get Alison to be my mother, I'd have to tell her what became of my father, Matthew Camberwell.
Now I just had to get a plan.
