Farmwork; Ellie looks forward to returning to her roots
Debbie mentally prepares to face a cow
He’s called Russell, and lives in Capella, Queensland – Google map shows his home is situated on an abandoned tennis court
Alter address to parents
Board flight, with 4 other people
Debbie feels sick
Ellie feels sick
Spend the following hour accusing the other for getting into this situation
Arrive at airport/shack in the middle of some Tarmac
Sit in waiting room
Glare at every male
Debbie voices (loudly) ‘I’m not going anywhere if its with him’
Pointing in the general direction of every man who all look like the lead from Wolf creek
Receive message “I’m out the back, in a white truck with a blue box in the back”
For fuck sake.
Walk outside, prepare to see our blue coffin
Greeted by young male wearing sunnies and a cap, aged 25
Good fortune, surely not?!
Get in truck
Debbie (obviously) takes her “side seat” without argument leaving Ellie wedged between Rusell with a gear stick in between her legs
It was a manual
Get back to Russels, Immediately rearrange furniture
Russell comes out to see Debbie dragging her bed into Ellie’s room
Positive note, we look like a gay couple
He won’t try it on
I’d like to think travelling has made me less naive to these situations
Following morning go to kitchen observe to do list
Initial advertised job description; work on cattle station, make lawn, clean airplane.
Today’s list; wrap Christmas presents.
(This job was never completed as Ellie and Debbie were kidnapped by Russels ((ex)) friends and forced to drink beer, he never spoke to those friends again.)
