Sister: The world turns and the valley is quiet. In a house on an estate a young girl lives with her mum, dad and the bane of her life. She dreams of the love of someone who understands, eyes full of love and two hearts entwined. A beautiful island of love in the sun … I am the girl and my dream is about to be shattered by the devil himself.
Mum: Kids! Tea’s ready.
Voices: Hello, Gruff.
Schoolboy: Oh my beloved, let us go to the island of love …
Everyone: Ahhh ...
Text message: Hi love, Gruff here. The diary thing is just like … too embarrassing. UR dumped!
Magazine text: 'Lewis – new lowest of the low'

Sister: The world turns and the valley is sleeping. Cold and tired, sister and brother sit huddled on an island. One is determined not to give her heart away so easily again, and the other ... will need to learn to swim.
