Everyone knows that past performance is a good indicator of future
behaviour, so when four young people arrived at Pippi Beach’s most
expensive house by motor cruiser, Lily wasn’t surprised that her mother
was the first to notice. Within minutes, Lydia was on the deck in her best
bikini, eyes glued to the telescope.
‘Mum!’ admonished Lily. ‘They’ll see you.’
‘I’m counting on it.’
Two young men, who could safely be judged handsome even from this
distance, were transferring luggage and supplies up to the house, assisted by
someone clearly from the local marina and therefore unimportant. Two
young women in sunglasses and flowing fabrics stalked the sand nearby,
flicking their hair around.
‘You looking?’ Lydia asked.
‘No,’ said Lily, her eyes fixed determinedly elsewhere.
‘You will when I tell you who it is.’
‘I don’t want to know who it is.’
‘Yes you do!’
‘No I don’t.’
‘Because it’s Casey Brandon!’ Lydia tore her eyes away momentarily
from the telescope to gloat. ‘Casey! Brandon!’
‘I don’t think—’
‘I know my rich and gorgeous megastars.’
‘Really?’ An internationally famous visitor at their tiny beach settlement
seemed unlikely to Lily, but she didn’t like to confirm or disprove it by
telescope. Not that she could have prised it from her mother anyway.
‘Oh my goodness, there it is. He’s taken off his shirt.’
‘He clearly wants attention.’
‘Not from you!’
‘How do you know? I’m not just your mum. I’m a hot mum.’
‘He’s probably come here to get some privacy.’
‘He’s American. They don’t know what that is. It’s our duty as
Australians and neighbours to welcome him, show him around—’
‘Please do not do that. Mum? Please?’
Lydia didn’t reply. She was too busy monitoring the way shirtless Casey
Brandon was carrying a box of groceries. All supplies to Pippi Beach had to
be brought over by boat and what people chose to bring offered quite a bit
of insight into their lifestyles, tastes, intentions, incomes and length of stay.
This was all important information, especially to the few who lived in the
pretty beach settlement all year round. Lydia had become a very
Six years ago, Lydia and her two girls had come to her older sister Jane’s
beach house at Pippi for a family Christmas and never left. Jane, who only
came to Pippi for weekends and holidays, offered the house as a temporary
solution until Lydia got back on her feet. Another apartment, another job
and another relationship had all fallen through, at least partly because of the
girls’ father, who had failed in pretty much every respect as a partner and as
a reasonable person. Lydia felt it was only fair; Jane had practically
sleepwalked into a high-income interior design career and then selfishly
topped it off with a wealthy husband. And what were sisters for if not to
share their good fortune?
