Summary; Charlie's sixteen and new to the bay with a child should she risk involving herself with the Riverboys?
Walking into a new school was always taunting but when you are sixteen with a child – it's much harder.
Glancing around the wide open courtyard Charlotte Buckton's eyes fell upon a bunch of boys that were pretend fighting, flipping her hair over her shoulder Charlie rolled her eyes – she didn't understand why boys had to be so immature.
Looking away from the boys she saw a lady heading her way – smiling brightly, Charlie knew this was the principle, she'd met her when she came to sign the papers.
"Charlotte, nice to see you again. Are you ready for your first day?" Miss Palmer asked as she extended her hand towards Charlie who shook it lightly.
"I'm a little nervous – but excited for my first day" Charlie said softly and Gina nodded.
"Of course you would be, this is a big adjustment" Gina said as she started to walk towards the school. "Now usually I would have another girl student show you around but one of my students has been a bit of a disruption and needs a little extra reminder on how to behave at school – I hope you won't be put off by this" Gina said and Charlie shook her head.
"Of course not" Charlie said as they walked into the office foyer – Charlie mouth immediately dropping open as she saw to boys standing in the middle of the foyer the older one glaring down at the younger one in the school uniform.
Charlie couldn't believe the how damn hot the older one looked – in Charlies book he was 'Sex on legs' standing there dressed only in a board shorts and a white singlet that was so loose she could see his chest tattoo – his arms were muscly and she could see his rock hard abs through the shirt – he was tall and tanned – broad but lean – muscly and tough – his smile was pearl white and his hair sandy brown and when he glanced in her direction and grinned she got lost in his blue eyes.
"Charlie – this is Brody, he will be your guide around school for the next week" Gina said and Charlie immediately glanced towards Brody who was slouching over looking rather grumpy until the older boy cleared his throat causing Brody to straighten up and give a light smile/smirk.
"Gina – if I can't be of anymore assistant I have to get back to work" The older boy said and Charlie couldn't help but stare at him in awe.
"No please go on Brax – thank-you for your help" Gina said as she reached forward to shake his hand.
"No problem" Brax said as he turned to face Brody. "Behave yourself aye? Make sure you treat his young girl right" Brax said with narrowed eyes receiving a nod from Brody. "Nice to meet you Charlie" Brax said with a wink as he turned around and walked out threw the office door swiftly leaving Charlie grinning.
Charlie and Brody walked out of class just as the lunch time bell rang – she was surprisingly getting on pretty well with Brody but was still yet to ask him questions about Brax – the older boy she thought was hot.
"So I am catching up with some of my mates and we are heading down to the beach for lunch – you coming?" Brody asked as he shoved his books into his locker – glancing expectantly at Charlie.
"If you don't mind" Charlie said shyly as grabbed her bag and Brody shook his head.
"Nah come on" Brody said as he started walking towards the door quickly. "Oi Sam – wait up" Brody said as he half heartily jogged over towards another teenage boy who was walking around with his shirt half open – Charlie rolled her eyes and realized it was one of the boys from this morning.
"Oh sweetheart – who are you?" Sam said with a wink as he smirked broadly and Charlie laughed.
"None of your business babe" Charlie said with a soft smile and the boys walking up to them laughed.
"Aww Sammy got shut down" One of the boys shouted as he threw his arm over Charlie's shoulder and smiled. "You girl are my new best friend – I'm Leo" He said with a cheeky grin and Charlie smiled.
"Now you – I can deal with" Charlie said with a laugh as they started to walk towards the beach.
Once at the beach Charlie new it was now or never – while all the boys were eating there lunch Charlie turned towards Brody.
"Hey Brodes, who was the guy with you in the office?" Charlie asked and Brody glanced up from his sandwich with a sour look.
"Brax" Brody said and all the boys heads snapped up – they were all trying to hold back laugher and failing.
"You got Brax called to the school?" Pee Wee asked as he grinned widely but Brody frowned.
"Yes I did and he ain't happy about it" Brody said as he chucked the rest of his sandwich down on the grass behind him.
"So who is Brax?" Charlie asked feeling like she was missing out on something and Sam glanced at her.
"He's the leader of the Riverboys, we are the Riverboys" Sam said and Charlie nodded thoughtfully.
"So you're a gang?" Charlie asked and Leo nodded, causing Charlie to frown playfully.
"On my first day I manage to make friends with a gang?" Charlie asked with a laugh and Brody shook his head.
"The most feared gang in both Mangrove River and Summerbay" Brody said with a shake of his head and Charlie laughed.
"Oh well better to be friends then enemies, now let's learn a little more about this gang aye?" Charlie said with a smile and the boys immediately started talking all at once.
"Wait let me get this straight – Brax is the leader, he has two brothers, a dead beat mum and a dad that was abusive but is now in jail – he's had a tough life and so have you lot – so he formed the Riverboys and you all support each other?" Charlie asked and Pee Wee nodded.
"Yeah that's it – you don't mess with Brax he's the leader – his words law" Pee Wee said and Charlie nodded.
"I am getting that vibe – but why was he at the school? Shouldn't your parents have been there?" Charlie asked Brody and he just shrugged.
"My parents are basically non-existent – they don't care, so Brax is kinda the one called for all that" Brody said and he was suddenly interrupted when there was a cough, turning around everyone saw Brax standing there.
"Wagging school – the lot of you?" Brax asked and Charlie immediately glanced down at her watch to see they were meant to be at school an hour ago, she couldn't believe on her first day she had wagged. "Pull your heads in and get your asses to school" Brax said firmly and all the boys began to stand – Leo helping Charlie up.
"Yeah sorry Brax" Sam and Pee Wee said as they turned to head up the beach, but Brax's voice stopped them.
"Barbeque at mine tonight – Charlie considering you've made friends with these lot, your welcome" Brax said before he tilted his head. "Now get your asses to school" Brax said and Leo pulled Charlie up the beach barely giving her time to glance at Brax who was holding Brody back to talk to him.
"You've been invited by him now girl – so you coming?" Leo asked and Charlie glanced at him.
"Um well – I – Um guess maybe" Charlie stuttered and Leo shook his head.
"You don't really have a choice – no one says no to Brax" Leo said with a chuckle.
Love it? Hate it?
Let me know what you think.
What do you think of Brax?
