Stars Over Pagosa
Camille’s Gramma Dorine always said a picture is worth a thousand words, sometimes a thousand painful words, but forgiveness can erase them all.
Two years before chapter 1:
Summer Olympics Platform Diving Pool...
"And Jack, here we have Camille Wallace up for her last dive of the day. She needs a perfect score to get back into medal contention. She has done an amazing job, coming back for her second Olympics as a solo diver. "
"I know, Walt. At first, they worried she wouldn't be able to make the transition without her sister, but the USA dive coach gave her a spot and it was worth the risk. Her scores have even the Chinese World Champions biting their nails. The competition this Olympics has been the fiercest we have seen. I think we'll be watching her in the next Olympics too. So far Camille has been the only American Diver to make it into the finals of both Springboard, where she won bronze, and now in the final dive of her Olympic Platform round. And here she is taking the edge, she is going up on her hands. Look at that line, the concentration... And there she goes..."
"And she did it, Jack. What an amazing dive! She just sucks the water in after her..."
"From our underwater camera, you can see the bubble wings where her teammates got her nickname from. They are calling her the blue butterfly. Let's re-watch the dive in slow motion. Look at how controlled she is as she twists, Walt."
"Jack, the scores are up... Let's see what the judges' score this dive at... Oh now that is a shame... Looks like Camille Wallace is going to get another bronze medal... And there is Willamina on the sideline, that is a happy sister."
"I am going to make a prediction, Walt. I am going to predict we see the Wallace sisters in the next Olympics. Camille diving and Willamina cheering her on..."
