When Dad told them where they were going on holiday, Marty whooped round the room and beat a drum roll out on the kitchen table. Mum raised her eyebrows and pinned on her ‘I’m not going to say anything’ smile. Will thought it sounded quite cool but life had taught him that seeing was believing where Dad was concerned.
They didn’t see Dad very often, maybe once every three months. Mum and Dad split up three years ago, when Will was eight. Mum never said much about it. Will thought it was probably one scheme too many that did it – maybe the hotel Dad bought in Asia without telling Mum. He remembered his Dad saying, “But it’s going to be the holiday destination for the 21st century!” The next day it was razed to the ground by an earthquake. Luckily no one was hurt because the local area was completely uninhabited. Due to the risk of earthquakes.
