I have travelled the world, searching for one thing. And my search has brought me to the small town, Sunset Valley.
"It's no use Darling. She isn't here." he gave up much too easily. Or maybe I was just too driven..?
"You can't just give up like this. We've only been in town for one day, sure we haven't seen her, but we haven't asked anyone either."
Yes. I was very driven, but it was for a just cause. Somewhere, out there was my missing daughter. She had gone missing as a teenager. Been taken by my husband's brother and his wife.
I had come to Sunset Valley searching for her. I'd heard rumours that someone with blue hair like mine had been spotted here, so of course I had rushed on over. The police had long since given up, but not me. I was determined to find my daughter.
The person who claimed they saw my daughter arrived not five minutes after our conversation, and I set about getting a tape recorder to record what she said. I was very professional about everything. She was brightly dressed, and her hair was black with neon green highlights. My other children, Sapphire (16) and Azure (12) sat behind her.
Here follows the transcript of our conversation.
OPAL- WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
RONA- RONA JADE PARKER-DAHLIA
OPAL- WHY HAVE YOU COME HERE?
RONA- I BELIEVE I HAVE INFORMATION ON YOUR DAUGHTER.
SAPPHIRE- YOU WOULDN'T BE THE FIRST.
Opal glares at Sapphire.
JAMES- DO YOU HAVE ANY CONNECTION TO OUR DAUGHTER?
RONA- I'M MARRIED TO ONE OF PAISLEY PARKER'S CHILDREN. PAISLEY IS CLOSE TO SOMEONE CALLED SKYE EVERARD. SHE LIVES IN A SMALL TOWN CALLED CHERWOOD.
YOUR DAUGHTER TRIES TO STAY OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT, BUT IT'S HARD.
RONA- YOUR DAUGHTER.... IS A CHALLENGE MOTHER.
All eyes turn to Rona.
Everards- Help us.
