Extra info for Lost Between Houses
Sure there was a fallen branch here, more strips of bark scattered across the ground, a fresh scatter of possum poo just where Fi and I liked to sunbake. But our little stacks of things were still there: Fi’s and mine together, the boys’ in separate piles. And over near our fireplace, the bigger pile of billies, frypan, plates and mugs and cutlery, and our food supply. For the first time in our mad rush away from Stratton I realised that we had somehow to provide shelter for these kids. Lucky it was summer.
It felt weird being there again. Last time I’d thought Iain and Ursula were overcautious, making us hang round till dark before we went over the ridge and into Hell. I still thought that, but this time there was no question in my mind of us waiting long. We had to get food into these little tummies. Both Casey and Natalie looked like they might pass out at any moment. So we sat there for three-quarters of an hour. The five of us had a quiet conversation while the five of them fell asleep. Three of them fell asleep so fast and slept so heavily that I dreaded the thought of waking them again.
But Jack followed him straightaway, then Darina, then, more reluctantly, Natalie and Casey. ‘Stop! Wait,’ Fi called urgently. ‘Let them go,’ I said. I could see what was going to happen. They would follow the natural lie of the land, but in doing that they would miss the track completely. There was a spur right in front of them which offered a nice easylooking walk, but it gradually curved away to the south. Eventually it would lead you into thick, impenetrable bush and by then you’d be well and truly lost.
