"Brax, it's for you" I informed him as I stood at the front door, the police on the other side

Brax walked over and I went to walk away, Brax wrapping his arm around my waist, stopping me…

"Mr Braxton, do you mind if we come in please? We need to have a chat" one asked

Brax shook his head and moved both of us aside, the police officers entering as he shut the door behind them, Brax and I making our way over to the sofas, the four of us sitting…

"I'm afraid it's not good news Mr Braxton" the policeman began "earlier today we were called to your mother's house. She passed away half an hour ago"

BRAX'S POV:

I swallowed as I tried to comprehend what the police had just said to me. I could feel Charlie's gaze on me as her grip on my hand tightened…

"We're gonna need you to come down to the hospital with us" the police officer informed me

"What for?" I questioned, confused

"We need someone to formally identify the body" the officer explained

I sighed and nodded before standing up as the police did the same…

"Brax, do you want me to come?" Charlie asked

I couldn't speak, I just nodded and she smiled before entwining our hands again, both of us leaving the house, following the police. Twenty minutes later we arrived at the hospital and we were led to the mortuary. Charlie waited outside whilst I went to identify the body. As the sheet was lifted I nodded, and all I wanted to was break down. The sheet was moved back over her body and I made my way back outside and into Charlie's open arms, finally breaking down…

Short chapter I know. So, Cheryl's dead? How are Heath and Casey gonna react?
