Example text

Don’t worry, Rocky, I’ll visit you as soon as I can,’ David told her. ‘But you won’t be living with us any more,’ she cried. She would never understand what had happened, and no one ever fully explained it to her. She just knew her parents were upset and didn’t want to see David any more. ‘That’s no way to repay all we’ve done for you,’ she heard her mother Vera tell David angrily as he packed up to move. But David knew he had paid his dues. He wondered whether his compensation money had been the reason for Vera and Lyn taking him on, rather than caring for him or wanting a big brother for Rocky.

That shaped the decision more than if it was profitable,’ David said. There was only one problem with the Busy Bee bakery. David had no experience of baking. However, he could flip hamburgers and deep-fry fish and chips, and was game to learn anything. His upbringing taught him that he had nothing to lose by taking a risk, and he had worked since the age of nine: farm work at Sedgley, summer jobs at Donald’s and the fertiliser factory, in a freezing works, on the wharf as a labourer, and picking fruit and potatoes.

Rocky fumed in the back. She gave David an apologetic smile as he jumped into the back seat beside her, shaking with cold. He smiled back warmly. Soon after arriving from Masterton, in May 1959, David enrolled at Timaru Boys’ High School. At the time, joining school teams seemed the best way to pursue his obsession with soccer and cricket, but as he had no academic aspirations, school soon lost its appeal. Within six months he dropped out, without making a single lasting school friend. He signed his name at the top of his leaving certificate exam paper and left without answering any of the exam questions.
