I flicked through the pictures on the camera. It was the old sort, the kind with film in it. The pictures were only black and white, not revealing too much of the story behind them. In the next picture, the suspect looked worried. You could see it in his eyes, There was a hard sort of smile on his face, as if he didn’t really mean it. I closed my eyes and my memory wandered. A beautiful memory. Her hair was dark brown, shining in the moonlight. If only things were as simple as they were back then, if only.
I don’t get it. How can something so tiny affect your whole life? One night and it was all over. One party. It’s funny what some things can do to you. Looking back to it now, it hurts and tears form in my eyes. Before now, I loved my Dad. He meant the world to me, but he wasn’t like other Dads.
Pete flicked through the pages of his daughter’s diary in disbelief. How- but he was cut short. The next words on the diary stabbed through him like a knife. “Oh god,” he muttered.
It’s time for him to go.

Waruwi finds a cow left by the English or otherwise known as “Ghosts” according to aborigines. Waruwi finds out that the English are setting up camp where they live.
She goes back home to tell Nana about the “ghosts” and the cow.
How would Nana react when she saw the cow?
Why would the English bring a cow?
I know that the aborigines had never seen a cow before and I also know that the aborigines were quite scared of the English because their skin colour was much lighter than they had ever seen. I also know that the English brought a lot of animals on the boats with them.
The aborigines used animal skin to make clothes. The smoke they have from the fire was used to keep the mosquitoes away. The aborigines were very calm and gentle around animals.
