    &#034What are you reading Russ,&#034 Kath asked as she plonked herself down on the divan beside him. &#034Mmm...what?&#034 &#034I asked you what you're reading.&#034 &#034Oh...er...some stupid story.&#034 &#034It may be stupid but you certainly seemed to be engrossed in it.&#034 &#034Was I...oh not really; I don't think I'll read any more of it.&#034 He laid the book on the coffee table and Kath quickly picked it up. &#034Mmm, 'The Lost Star'. What's it about?&#034 &#034A film star who goes out sailing with her son; there's a storm and they get washed up on an island.&#034 He stopped speaking and Kath said impatiently, &#034Well go on.&#034 &#034Of course she's a great beauty and he's a real hunk. When its realised they're missing there's a big hunt for them, but they're not found, so it's assumed they drowned. There's weeping and wailing in the media and everybody says what a wonderful person she was, always concerned for the underdog, would do anything for anybody; all that sort of crap.&#034 &#034Yes, the best way to instant sainthood is to die; people suddenly discover all your virtues, even if you didn't have any. It gives people an excuse for crying.&#034 &#034Yes; so these two are marooned...&#034 &#034Mrs. Crusoe and son.&#034 &#034Mmm, but her name in the story, would you believe, is Gloria Swanneck.&#034 &#034What's the son's name, Billy Ducklegs?&#034 Russ laughed, &#034No, he's called Garth Hammer. He's her son by her first marriage to some guy who was heir to ...
    the Hammer millions.&#034 &#034I wonder how much she soaked him for when they got divorced?&#034 &#034It doesn't say, but she's supposed to have been married four times since then.&#034 &#034Made a second profession of it alongside being a film star did she?&#034 &#034Yes, like a lot of people these days.&#034 &#034Well what happened to them?&#034 &#034I don't know I haven't finished the story. I'm just at the part where they're building a shelter and fishing and eating wild berries.&#034 &#034Wild berries? Do they know about things like that? I mean, they could get poisoned.&#034 Well that's one of the stupid things about the story; these two have spent most of their lives being waited on and grovelled to by servants and the like, and then they suddenly know how to build things and about the berries and so on. And another thing, the story keeps on about how her beauty is enhanced by their life on the island. I reckon she'd turn into an old hay bag trying to stay alive like that.&#034 &#034It is only a story.&#034 &#034Yes, and I've had enough of it.&#034 &#034Where did you get it...oh, I see it's from the library.&#034 &#034I prefer something that's real...you know, that you can believe in. I got another book out; I'll try reading that instead.&#034 &#034What's it called?&#034 &#034The bl**dstone of Ravensbrook Castle.&#034 &#034Sounds very believable, darling,&#034 Kath said dubiously. &#034Yes, I think I'll go to bed and start reading it there. Goodnight mum.&#034 &#034Give ...
