The Bendersons: Kidnapped at K7
“I am going to pack my stuff in the port, Tam,” said Mum.
“Yes, I think I will have a shower, eats and bed,” I sighed.
Later, the both of us went to our beds and I tried to sleep, but to no avail as Mum was
determined to disturb my night’s sleep with her continual snoring that she was doing. It was so
annoying, but in the end the both of us fell asleep from exhaustion.
“Now, are you going to help clean up the house, Tam,” asked Mum.
“You did it yesterday,” I faltered.
“Did I? No Tam, we didn’t and Dan wants it done…this is our last day here and if you come

Luckily I had finished off my meal, as that comment made me feel so sick inside…but I
needed a quick getaway. “Mum, you don’t mind if I have a little flutter on the pokies?”
Mum looked at me and said, “O f course Tam. You might as well enjoy yourself,” she
smirked, knowing full well what she was saying.
I played a little while and then went back to my hotel room and saw Mum packing
