God Charlie is dense! She should have asked Joey for a chance for them to get back together! She was the one giving Joey the picture that it was too late for them, not the other way round! Why for once couldn't Charlie just call Joey and spoke to her and be honest with her that she wants Joey back! So frustrating grrr! Yup Aden and Justin are going to make Charlie's job harder because they have jumped to the conclusion that Justin killed his father :0S And of course Charlie is right to be suspicious of Ruby lol Angelo is such and arsehole for stuffing up Charlie's counselling by being the obsessive stalking wanker that he is!
Congrats wom on your 100th chapter and for becoming an aunty again :0)

Great chapter. I, for one, am very glad you decided to post this. I really enjoy the depth that you're able to go into about Charlie's thoughts and feelings. Well done for one hundred chapters too, it really is quite an achievement. I'm glad Charlie was able to be honest with Leah about how she was feeling about Joey and Angelo. It's just a pity she doesn't feel she can do anything about how she feels. It was nice she heard from Joey on what would have been their anniversary but in some ways it seemed to make things harder, knowing part of her still loved her too. It's a pity Charlie felt she couldn't continue with the counselling. I' m glad Angelo, if no one else, feels sheepish about his stalkerish behaviour. Poor Charlie with everyone thinking it was sweet or amusing. Thanks for all your hard work on such an excellent story.

Charlie really should speak to Joey to see if there could be a chance for them to get back together! As for Angelo, she should go with her first thought and gut feeling that it is very creepy and it is stalking what he did, not romantic! She is a cop and they see stalking as a crime! And people who do that are mentally unstable! Hence Charlie should get a restraining order against Angelo whilst they are not on shift together! And he is such a bastard for stuffing up counselling for Charlie! Charlie should have had him arrested for stalking and Michael being a counsellor should have suggested to Charlie to speak with the big bosses about Angelo's stalker behaviour!

Excellent chapter. I'm not surprised Charlie reacted to Angelo's stalking that way. The thing that always did surprise me was how so many other people thought it was cute. I'm glad she got the apology she deserved from him but given the seriousness of the matter it's the last she should have expected. It was good to see her making some progress with Michael before Angelo's nasty surprise too. I'm glad she Charlie had some compassion with Martha which must have taken a lot given her mood and what she actually thought about Hugo. Can't believe the next one will be chapter one hundred. Congratulations in advance. I'm really enjoying this.

Excellent chapter. Poor Charlie, she really seemed to be trying to make a go of the counselling but Angelo's incessant snooping really doesn't seem to be helping, especially on top of her mother's anniversary and her memories of Joey, you can really see why she's struggling. Oh and the comment about asking the book questions really amused me.

Great chapter. Even though in some ways Charlie seems to be approaching the counselling as a way to make her feel more for Angelo it seems like talking through things, the past especially and her issues with commitment might really help. She was really brave with going through with it too, despite a few wobbles. I thought Ruby was great with being supportive, even though she seems a little desperate to push her and Angelo together. I thought Leah was helpful too with telling Charlie she'd explain to Angelo in her own time when she felt ready. Excellent writing.

I can understand why Charlie is worried about Angelo finding out she is in counselling, because he is such a judgemental wanker. Also Charlie hates to be seen as weak, and to her being in counselling makes her feel weak :0( Oh and Angelo is a creepy obsessed arsehole so no wonder Charlie is finding him that way lol Yes the anniversary of her mum's death would be hard on her :0( Well if Charlie really wanted Joey all she would have to do is ask her!
| luckdog 4/20/13 . chapter 97
I wish Ruby would bother to really look at Charlie and see that her mum really isn't interested in Angelo and stop trying to push them together! Charlie needs to find happiness and contentment with herself and being by herself then trying to find them in somebody else! As for Xavier he should pull his head in and butt out of his mother's love life! Yes Leah and Elijah would make a cute couple ;0) Marilyn will blow a refreshing breeze into the Bay lol

Great chapter. I feel a bit sorry for both Charlie and Leah at the moment. Everybody else seems way more into the idea of Charlie getting back together with Angelo than her and they don't really seem afraid of telling her so. As for Leah you can see why she'd be worried about Elijah knowing how she feels when she can't read how he is thinking about her. Maybe now it's out there it will give her the courage to try and find out. It was lovely to see Charlie and Ruby spending more time together and great to read about the happy visit they had with her dad. Excellent writing.

Leah suggested counselling for Charlie for her commitment issue and keep harping at her about getting back with Angelo! Wouldn't it be better for Charlie to get counselling first then after decide if she wants to be with him? Pressuring Charlie will not help her and only cause more harm than good! Charlie needs to deal with her feelings for Joey before she can commit to someone new! As for Leah she should get brave and tell Elijah how she feels!

Great chapter. I thought you wrote Charlie's turmoil brilliantly as always. The almost funny thing is that she seems to know getting back together with Angelo would be a bad thing. She knows he wants more than she is willing to give, even if he's playing it all a bit more laid back for the time being. I'm sure she knows that he thinks time will be able to convince her she wants the same things as him but she seems like she's going to ignore it again for the sake of wanting someone to care. The problem is, as her thoughts on it would have been her and Joey's anniversary show, yes she wants to be loved and cared about but Angelo isn't the one she wants to do it. Also the fact that Ruby seems to be more enthusiastic about the whole thing than Charlie is pretty telling. I'm glad Xavier and Ruby got back together and Charlie was able to keep the news of Mink's actions to herself despite her conscience. Brilliant writing.

Let's see how long Angelo lasts with just wanting to be friends with Charlie before he starts to pressures her for them to get back together! And I'm sure if Charlie had of really begged, and been sober and went and seen her, Joey for another chance I bet Joey would have come back! Oh and it sounds like Charlie is trying to talk herself into getting back with Angelo because she is lonely!
| luckdog 3/7/13 . chapter 94
It would be nice if Aden found out how receptive Joey would be in getting back with Charlie ;0) Because if Joey was missing Charlie as much as he knows Charlie is missing Joey then he might be able to get them back together ;0) I'm glad that Aden and Nicole have made up, they are a lovely couple :0) I wish Ruby would be more understand towards Charlie's feelings about Charlie not wanting to be in a relationship with Angelo, the man is a self obsessed prick! As for Ruby and Xavier well if they are happy, at least with her distracted with Xavier she'll leave off on trying to get Charlie to take Angelo back! Yeah Leah is so cute with her crush on Elijah lol And Colleen should pull her head in, Leah's happiness should mean more to Colleen then her antiquated mentality!

Great chapter. As much as Charlie seemed to feel a little guilty about Angelo I think she was right to put a bit of distance between them if only so he didn't get the wrong impression. She knows they shouldn't be together and it's not what she wants, even if both he and Ruby think the opposite. Plus like she admitted to Aden, she's still in love with Joey whether she can be with her or not. It was nice to see Aden and Charlie talk like that, even after a shaky start with the bad moods they were in. I'm glad Ruby and Xavier seem back on track too. It's nice to see Charlie trying to support Leah over her feelings for Elijah and convince her there's nothing wrong, although she doesn't seem to have persuaded her quite yet with her abandoning her self defence class. Excellent writing.

I still think Charlie should go see Joey, even just to have a coffee because I think if she did that and see if Joey is happy then she can get the closure she needs. And if she discovers that Joey isn't happy, then there maybe a chance for them to get back together. Also Charlie really does need to get some counselling to help to banish the horror and trauma that Grant left her with! As for Ruby, she should take off the 'Angelo, rose tinted glasses', and see that he is damaging Charlie more, then doing her any good! And if she loved Charlie so much she would be tracking down Joey and finding out if there could be a chance for her and Charlie to be together! I'm glad Leah is getting her confidence back :0) As for Aden it would have been good if he got in contact with Joey because it sounds like he needs a friend ;0)
