Poor Charlie, even if she doesn't like the River Boys personally, professionally she has to be unbiased and she can only arrest them if they did break the law. She cannot put them in gaol for being obnoxious because if they was the case Angelo would have been in gaol ages ago lol God I hope Charlie doesn't let her hormones over run her head in regards to Brax because her moral fibre will take a huge nose dive and she will end up an amoral cop like Angelo became!
Love you too, IJKS :0) I hope all goes well with your operation and you get well fast! ;0)

Angelo is so totally sold on himself that he would try and almost seduce Charlie & Leah to a under 30 drinks deal. Women are from Venus, but Angelo is stuck in the core of planet Mars. What a moron!
Alf is one of the few men in Summer Bay that has any class and morale values. It gets very old when you try to do the right thing (to include treating the women of Summer Bay nicely) to find that a good chunk of the men in town are misfits and lack any character.
Being involved in conservation, what April and Xavier did was darn stupid and plain dangerous. It would of done absolutely no good for either of them to have died from the stunt they performed.
Well written IJKS. Thane

No matter if Angelo was a cop or now the owner of a bar, he is a miserable person who has no manners, no compassion and only interested in himself. It was long overdue for Charlie to dump him.
The River Boys are like a swarm of evil locust, once they do their destruction in one area they just seem to move on. I really try not to be a violent person, but sometimes when the situation arises you have to deal with a situation like that with no mercy.
VJ is going to take awhile before he heals over losing Elijah, but it really is the best thing for him and of course Leah.
Yes Bianca is attractive, but she is high maintenance for anyone to include Liam. One day without sex and she complains - is the man not allowed to pass on sex when he has a headache - LOL.
Nice job IJKS.. Thane3

So the River Boys are raising their ugly heads causing trouble. Charlie of all people should no better than to even consider Brax cute. He is a criminal and absolutely nothing good will come of it.
VJ and Leah have had a hard time dealing with the situation over Elijah. Even with him back in town with a fake wife, they need to make a clean break from him even though it will be painful.
Bianca and Liam are starting to heat up as a couple - it will be interesting to see where it leads.
It is nice to have you back IJKS. I hope you continue to get better. Know that you are loved always. Thane3

Looking forward to reading how Leah's date with Brax goes.

Charlie was right Angelo should have hire some security for the event just as a precaution, but obviously he didn't have the money to pay for some! Poor Miles what a lovely welcome home, being smacked over the head with a stubbie of beer! As for Bianca yup she is a princess my god how does she cope when she gets her periods if she carries on when missing one night of sex! h how lovely of Charlie and Ruby to organises a little get together for her birthday :0) As for Elijah returning I hope Leah can cope with his return!

It was lovely to get the update. I will be honest though. I'm not sure my poor heart can cope with reading the Brax saga. I used to scream abuse at the TV as it was happening originally. So the thought of reading Charlie justifying it, makes me grind my teeth. And given that we all know how it ends?
So I may have to stop reading this story for the sake of my BP. Not your fault I promise, the show gave you crap to work with from now till the end of Charlie's story. So!

I'm glad Charlie had a talk with Leah about if she wasn't over Elijah then a relationship with Robertson wasn't going to work because Charlie definitely know what she is talking about here, with her still being in love with Joey whilst she was trying to play happy family with Angelo and that relationship end in disaster! And go on Alf for leaving for awhile, it will help deal with all the shit he has been through! And as for Xavier and April, that was very stupid of Xavier mixing the chemicals, he researched them so he have know what they would do when mixed together with water! But can see him blaming April for his stuff up and landing him in hospital! The only good thing coming out of this is that neither one lost their lives.

The death of Penn was no big loss to Summer Bay but I do agree with Charlie that at least the true killer has been caught and now will be going to jail for a long time.
You can tell in this chapter that Charlie ridding herself of Angelo was the best thing she done, now if she only could get Joey back then she would be in romance heaven.
Alf is the kind of person that could be a grandfather to anyone in Summer Bay, he is kind to a fault. Glad that Charlie stuck by him through the entire ordeal.
Nice chapter IJKS - xx Thane3

I'm so glad that Robertson got it so wrong, the smug arrogant prick! As for him not wanting to go after Alf, that's a joke! He refused to listen to Graves and Charlie, who both told him who they believed killed Penn, which was Will. So much for his superior detective work and him belittling Charlie and Graves, he was the one who end up looking the fool! Oh and I had to smile a Bianca's comment about Joey being 'hot' and totally understanding of Charlie 'switching teams' lol

Why does Ruby think she is missing out on being a part of a family if Charlie isn't with Angelo? She is a part of a family which is now made up of Charlie, Leah and VJ, this family has more love and respect then Charlie and Angelo's relationship ever had! I'm just glad Angelo finally took the blame for something that happened in his and Charlie's relationship even though Charlie was the one to break it off with him. At least now Ruby is being civil to Charlie. Oh and I can't wait for Charlie to tell Bianca all about Joey lol I'm glad Charlie is staying on Penn's murder case to keep Robertson honest ;0)

I'm glad that Charlie got to say the things she needed to say to Angelo to help bring closure to their toxic relationship. If Angelo hadn't of treated Charlie he did, Joey would not have been such an influence in their relationship even though Charlie will always love her. As for Ruby she needs to be angry at someone in dealing with her grief and Charlie is her target because she knows Charlie will always be there and love he no matter what, which is sad because if she just lets go of her anger and lets Charlie in it would be the best healing medicine they both need :0(

It was very sad to see Charlie go through such a horrible experience during her father's funeral. And to top it all off, she has this roo with Ruby. Sometimes that child has got to start leaning more to her actual flesh and blood than to others. Siding with Angelo against Charlie is a little much and I had that happen many times as a child where I never got any family support when it was a conflict with an outsider.
Hard to imagine that V.J. is about ready for high school, he will need to have friends around.
And No Charlie did not need to be sleeping with Angelo even if for only one night, anyone else fine but not Angelo, there is too much history.
Totally understand Charlie and her line about drawing the line and moving forward with someone. Most of my life I have had to do it on my own with no one. Even now with the possibility of being gone in two years, I am making peace on issues by myself - no one around, no one cares, no one physically to hold onto. As Charlie says - Why is it always my own fault. Excellent chapter, well written very insightful. There was lots of similarities with current events. Very well done IJKS. X Thane3

Even in a relationship that was difficult Charlie loved her Dad no matter what he felt for her at the time. Right now if Joey had been in Summer Bay Charlie would of been able to handle things better. But as such at least Joey sent a text to both Charlie and Ruby and that is the best it is going to be.
Yea the week leading up to a funeral is the worst week imaginable. Let's hope that Charlie & Ruby come together right now during this time.
Angelo finally apologizing is about time, peace is better than hatred for the long term. At least Charlie and Angelo can move forward.
Great chapter IJKS. Great to see you back writing. Love Thane3

Very sad but sweet chapter.
