Tracy Island, Thursday 8th March, 1:30 p.m.

Kat was enjoying some peaceful time by the pool, reading her book. Suddenly she heard male voices laughing and talking. Looking up she saw Virgil and Gordon approaching, both looking very happy.

"Had some good news?" she asked them.

"Yes!" Virgil replied. "Mom has just phoned. Dad is ready to leave hospital to convalesce here on the island."

"That's great news!" Kat exclaimed.

"What's great news?" asked Alan as he and Nikki approached the others.

"Dad's coming home," Gordon told his younger brother.

"Wow, when?" asked Alan.

"I don't have an exact date, but it looks like Sunday or Monday our time," Virgil replied.

Suddenly Virgil espied his youngest brother's water cannon, conveniently filled with water. He picked it up and carefully aimed it at Kat.

Kat yelled, jumping as the cold water hit her, soaking her and her book.

Kat gave Nikki a look and the two girls both lunged at Virgil, who, caught completely unawares, fell backwards into the pool. Kat and Nikki both grinned at each other and clapped each other on the back.

"Okay, truce," Virgil said, holding out his hand. "Kat, would you please help me out?"

Unthinking, Kat offered Virgil her hand and before she realised it, he pulled her into the pool with him. Kat surfaced, wiping the water from her eyes, and lunged at Virgil, dunking him under the water.

Without any more ado, Nikki, Gordon, and Alan jumped into the pool, and for the next half hour, had the biggest water fight for a long time.

Lisa, hearing the noise, came to watch and thought to herself, It's nice to seem them letting off steam after all the tension lately.

Eventually, soaking wet and breathless, the five got out of the pool and sank down on the chairs and loungers.

"Phew," Gordon said, "That was great to let off steam like that." Kat and Nikki could only nod in agreement.

Just then Lisa said, "I think that you would all like a drink." And she went into the house to fetch some drinks.

Christopher, Brandon, and Dominic, with Joshua on his shoulders, came out.

"What have we missed?" Christopher asked looking at the breathless and very wet group.

"Dad's coming home and we have had the biggest water fight ever," Alan answered.

"Wow, that is great news!" Christopher said. "I'm sure looking forward to seeing Mr Tracy back here on the island."
Brandon and Dom both agreed with him.

"I don't think you girls played fairly," Alan remarked

"Whatever makes you say that?" Kat laughed.

"You were ganging up on us males," Alan continued.

"Nonsense!" Nikki retorted. "After all, Virgil started it by firing water at Kat."

"Yes," Kat agreed, "and we girls must stick together! At the moment we are grossly outnumbered."

Just then Lisa returned with the drinks.

"Here's to a return water fight," Virgil said, raising his glass.

"You're on," Kat said. "But only when Callie is back, which will slightly lessen the odds against us."
