and Vivian was like, Fergus, where the fuck have you been all this? Yeah, and now you've sat there on the phone forever. Exactly, like, you're just being rude. And so she basically, she just said like, where have you been? Like, what were you doing? And he shockingly just confirmed all of her suspicions and admitted everything about his affair with beth he was like, I was at death's house, like, you're right, like we've been having an affair so vivid, rightfully so lost her shit, but then she took things a step too far and she smashed a wine glass over Ferguson's head and then when it broke, she like stabbed him in the back, oh my God, like up the back, holy shit. So that whole fiasco is going like there's like Children sleeping and like that another part of the house Fergus goes upstairs to like figure out what's going on with his head, she's probably just like trying to clean up or whatever and then they finally realized that he needs to go to the hospital. Like he's bleeding really badly from his ear and his bad, I mean, she stabbed him. Yeah, literally, that's that's bad, that's not okay. So Vivian is like, you need to go to a hospital, like, I have to take you to the hospital, like, let's call Marnie back over here and she can watch the kids and we'll go get that taken care of. Hello Marnie, I stabbed your brother, literally, the sweet, sweet marty, the board of the poor thing. So marty was like, okay, coming, coming right back and her husband, Ian went along with her back to Fergus is yet again, Oh my God, yet again, this phone. So at the hospital, Fergus got his wounds all stitched up, He needed stitches to his ear and part of his back. And when he and Vivian got home around 12 30 they sent Marnie and Ian on their way so that they could speak privately and it was then decided that they were absolutely going to get a divorce for sure. So, I read in a couple of sources that Vivian agreed that the Children would be better off staying with Fergus on the farm and she would go back to Melbourne with her parents. But anyone who knew Vivian was like, no, that conversation, like, there's no way that it went like that because she was obsessed with her kids. Just a very doting mother, like never would have walked away. She never would have wanted to be like, you take them for the most part. Exactly. And actually, later, Fergus himself told investigators that he knew if he ended things with Vivian that she would be the one to stay with the kids and he and Beth would be living somewhere else like not on the island. So they finished their conversation and Vivian was like you know what why don't you spend the night at marty's house? Like I think enough has gone down here. Don't you get the fuck out? I don't really want to sleep in the same bed as you please leave. So she drops him off at marty in Anne's house and you know one might think it's so that she could have some time alone to reflect maybe cool off. Maybe she did that for a little bit. I don't really know. She returned home she had a few hours and around three a.m. She phoned a friend Robyn Dixon and she said to Robyn Dixon hey girl can you watch the kids because I have to take Fergus to the hospital. So can you come and just like they're sleeping can you just hang out with them at three a.m. At three a.m. And also she had already taken fast to the hospital. Like that already happened. That was already thing that happened. So what the fuck was live up to? Well, nothing good. That's for sure. Now when Robin got to the home, none of the adults were there. Vivian was already gone. So the kids were just sleeping in their beds by themselves, jesus exactly. I couldn't find their ages, but they were always referred to as young. Now Robin assumed that she must have left in a hurry to because her purse was still there at the house. So the next morning, Robin still has the kids, Vivian never showed up back up to get them. And Robin wasn't getting any kind of answer when she tried to call Vivian. So she said she needed to call Fergus because she had to go to work. She's like, hey, Fergus, I have to go to work, This is what happened. Meanwhile, Fergus is like what he's like, no, she didn't take me, like she took me to hospital one time, not two times earlier and he was so he went to go pick up the boys, but now he was really concerned that something might have happened to beth, which seems to be a pretty big leap. Like Vivian's missing and didn't pick up the kids, but why is your immediate thought? Like, oh I hope beth you must like something bad must happen at beth. So the night before community should worry about your actual life whose mother of your child for like literally missing. Just one second maybe just put beth over here for a second this much. Maybe just like yeah, we're not a fan of Fergus, but one minute just give her a little bit of a thought. Exactly. So it's like what? But I guess the night before at the hospital, he alleged that Vivian made some kind of threat against beth Of course she did. I'm going to kill that little bit. Of course I did. You find out your spouse is cheating on your horse? You're going to say, I don't care who you and if you're listening right now and saying like, no, I want it, you would absolutely. I'm not saying you follow through on it and that it's okay. No, no, no, no. If somebody, if my spouse was cheating on me, the first thing I would say was I'm going to fucking kill her. You manned you. You might get a little hyperbolic in that situation, allow allow yourself to get slightly hyperbolic. That's all you can get hyperbolic when there's an affair
