Ok here is just something I have been thinking about. Please let me know if you like and whether or not I should continue.

This is set around the time the River Boys first come to the bay.

Charlie and Watson made their way slowly towards the door of the Braxton's house. Charlie reached up and knocked firmly on the door.

They waited patiently for someone to answer, Watson scanned her surroundings for any signs of evidence, but all she could see was a line full of washing, a few tyres, a bench press and a couple of Ute's parked in the yard.

Charlie took a deep breath as the door opened, she was shocked to see a heavily pregnant woman standing in front of them, she was wearing a white Maxi dress and her hair was pulled up into a messy bun.

"Can I help you?" she asked curiously.

"Er…yes we are looking for Mr Braxton" Watson replied "I'm PC Watson and this is PC Buckton" Watson introduced both her and Charlie to the woman.

"And you are?" Charlie wondered curiously.

"Francesca Braxton" The woman replied. Charlie desperately hoped she was a relative or a sister "I'm Heath's wife" she added. Charlie relaxed at this piece of information. Charlie wasn't so sure why she had got herself wound up at the thought of this woman being married to Brax.

"Just the man we came to see is he here?" Watson interrupted as she looked over at the Ute.

"No he's just gone to take the dog out" Francesca replied "He shouldn't be long if you want to wait?"

"No its fine we'll catch up with him later" Charlie finally spoke again.

"Ok" Francesca replied.

"Thank you for you time" Watson smiled as she and Charlie made their way back to the car.


Francesca closed the door and waddled back to the kitchen "Who was that?" A man asked as he wrapped his hands around her heavily pregnant stomach.

"The police, they're looking for you. What the hell have you done now Heath?" Francesca snapped.

"Baby I haven't done anything" Heath replied as he kissed her neck gently "What did you tell them?"

"I told them you were walking the dog. They're coming back later" Francesca frowned as she continued to wash the pots.


"Do you think she was telling the truth?" Watson asked Charlie as they drove back to the police station.

"I don't know, I think so" Charlie replied blankly she wasn't really listening to Watson's question. Charlie couldn't stop thinking about how she would have felt if that woman was married to Brax and not Heath.

Why the hell was she thinking this way? Charlie was not in anyway interested in Darryl Braxton…well that's what she kept telling herself at least.

"So how pregnant do you think she is?" Watson said interrupting Charlie's thoughts.

"7 months maybe I'm not sure" Charlie replied "It would be interesting to find out a bit more about her though" Watson nodded, she agreed with Charlie, it would be a good idea to find out just how involved this woman was with the Braxton's and the rest of the river boys.

Ok so I know this is short but I just wanted to put my idea across. What do you think? I don't plan on this story being very long but who knows if it successful I may think about a sequel.

There will be some Chax in this story and maybe some Rasey. But my main focus will be around Francesca and Heath, I will warn you there will be some shocking revelations which will cause the town rethink their opinion of Heath Braxton!
