"Brax, Brax?" I yelled, walking around the house but there was no reply. I sighed heavily and shoved my bag and keys on the counter, taking out my phone.
Where are you? No reply. I quickly put some suitable clothes on and drove to Angelo's. I walked through the doors but didn't see Brax anywhere.
"Have you seen Brax?" I asked one of the waiters. She shook her head and continued working. I put my head in my hands when I heard someone talking to a girl walking behind me. I quickly turned around and realised it was Brax. I put my hands in my pockets and stood there uncomfortably staring at the girl he was talking to. He paused and looked over at me before leaving the girl and walking over to me.
"Hi." He said quietly.
"Hi." I replied awkwardly. We both stood in silence before he checked his watch and ushered me into his office.
"I'm working Charlie."
"I, I know. I just wanted to see if you were okay." He looked at me for a while before sighing.
"Yes, I'm fine." I stood there, expecting him to continue.
"Then do you want to explain to me what happened at the hospital?"
"I'm pretty sure we were there for Bianca." I gave out a sarcastic laugh.
"Are you kidding me?" He looked at me seriously.
"How can you expect us to have a baby together if you can't even tell me what the hell your problem is?" He thought about this for a moment and laughed.
"Charlie, it has nothing to do with our baby."
"I don't want my child to grow-"
"Our baby." He corrected and I nodded.
"Our baby, to grow up in a home where the parents fight all day, every day."
"What, and that would be different if you were with Heath?" I nearly laughed until I realised he was serious.
"What are you talking about?"
"I saw you two at the beach." Now I did laugh.
"You are unbelievable." I spat. He shook his head and pointed towards the door.
"Leave." I didn't even hesitate.
"With pleasure." I stormed past him and slammed the door on my way out.
I just let her storm past me and I didn't even know what was wrong with me. I groaned and shook my head before running after her.
"Charlie, Charlie." I grasped her arm and she immediately shook it away.
"What?" She said very angrily and gave me her most evil death stare. It made me laugh a bit.
"I'm sorry, works just been really hectic lately and it was stupid." She continued to look at me angrily.
"We fight all of the time, Brax and I'm tired." I stepped closer to her and put my hand on her face.
"I know." I whispered. "It's going to be okay." She nodded faintly and wiped away the tears that had escaped from her eyes.
"You don't have to be jealous. I love you, you." She repeated but her gaze wandered somewhere else. She got out of my grip and broke into a smile, still not looking at me.
"Roman?" She shouted and ran away. When I turned around she was in the arms of "Roman". I watched his arms trace all around her body and I felt that tinge of pain I felt when I saw her with Heath. I knew I had nothing to worry about, she just reassured me of that. I walked over to them before things got too frisky.
"Oh, Brax." She said, as if I was never there. "This is Roman."
"Brax." I said to him, giving him my hand to shake.
"When did you get here?" Charlie asked excitedly.
"I actually just got here, you're the first person I've seen."
"Oh well, I'll let you go say hi to everyone else then."
"Yeah." He replied, smiling before giving her another hug and kissing her cheek. I instinctively wrapped my arm around Charlie's waist and she immediately linked her fingers with mine. She looked up at me and smiled. I watched Roman's eyes watch our interaction and he awkwardly smiled. "I'll see you soon." He said before walking away. As soon as he walked away Charlie held my hand tighter and pulled me towards the beach, where walked for a while.
After Brax and I got home I decided to have a shower. As I was washing my body I heard the door open and someone get inside. I jumped until Brax's arms were around me and he was kissing my neck. I let out a slight moan before giggling, and pushing him away.
"I'm trying to have a shower." I said.
"I am too." He replied. I laughed.
"Mmmhm." I mumbled before continuing to kiss him. He was quick to turn the water off and pick me up to take me to our bedroom. I wrapped my lags around his waist but started laughing when he walked into the wrong room. We closed the door quickly and walked into the right room. He laid me on the bedd and continued to kiss me while feeling up my leg. The sensation of his touch gave me shivers. That, and because I was really cold since I was still wet.
I woke up when Charlie started stirring in my arms. I tried to sooth her by running my hand through her hair but she kept stirring. I gently shook her.
"Mmmm." She mumbled, obviously very tired. I figured once she woke up, she'd just go back to sleep normally.
"Mmmm." She repeated before I wrapped my arms around her once again.
It's the time for exams and assignments to be due so sorry the slow updates. To make up for it, I've been updating two at a time!:) Home and away's really depressing lately, it's not the same without Charlie and Brax))): Just though I'd say that! Anyway, enjoy and I have plans for this story to end soon! I want to start afresh :)
