I treated it like a learning process, and some time later I met my first husband. I took an extension course at the University of the South Pacific Centre at Teaoraereke, in the capital, Tarawa, which led to meeting Patrick Ludgate, a Peace Corps worker, who also happened to be the course coordinator. Patrick’s accent was different to English teachers at King George the 5th secondary school. He was energetic, and a couple of centimetres shorter than me. He spoke Kiribati fluently, conversing with everyone he met; he knew our culture well, as it was part of the program to live with families in outer islands, and learn traditional ways, before serving the community.
I was frustrated with everything, and I felt a failure. I was determined to achieve my goal. No matter what the cost or culture, I would have my own baby. Patrick promised to be back in two years, when his African work was completed. He agreed to join me then in Kiribas. A lone woman returning to Kiribas created murmurs around the island. I applied to the Education Department, and was lucky to gain my teaching career back. In my absence, another gorgeous baby named Eimi had been born. She was the first granddaughter in the family.
We hear the rumbling noise. It sounds like the music of a didgeridoo, a kind of humming sound. So we think, what? There’s no light. Just that bass sound, like goin’ up and down: “Wow! ” “What’s that noise? ” I lean over one side of the tinnie, trying for more reach, getting more of a feel for the noise. It’s coming from my side; there are a couple of quick splashes on my face, followed by one hell of a jolt. The tinnie tilts sharply, hits me hard on the side of the arm, and next minute there’s water everywhere.
