rachel:wait charlie theres more we manage to stable ruby but im sorry to tell you this but its only a matter of hours before rubys heart will stop and we cant do anymore for her,we tired everything but because of the wound the is to much pressure on heart and it will give in.

charlie: no no she cant die she's to young she cant,she cant leave me not now.

charlie sat there for while taking in the news that her 16 yr old sister would not be in this world tommorrow she will be gone,and charlie didnt no how she was going to cope without her or how she was going to tell her baby sister that today was going to be her last day on this earth...

An hour had passed charlie was now allowed to see ruby as she was walking through the doors of the room she heard a silent little cry "charlie"

she quickly ran over to ruby and kissed her forehead and held her hand,ruby started to feel more comfortable now that charlie was there.

There was silence for a few minutes then charlie spoke..

charlie:ruby im so proud of you and i will always love.

ruby could sense there was something wrong by the way charlie was talking

ruby:charlie what is it i no there is something your trying to tell me please just say it?

ruby looked at charlie her face was full of sadness tears rolling down her cheeks ruby new her self that it wasnt good.

ruby:im dying arnt i? im not going to make it.As she spoke a darting pain came across her body.it only lasted a few seconds.

charlie:ruby i dont want you to be scared your going to be safe.

ruby:charlie i am dying im really scared i dont wanna die im only 16 i have so much to do in my life.

charlie:i no sweetheart i dont want this either

ruby:how long do they say i have?

charlie:rachel said a few hours thats only how more your heart can take.

they both sat there crying charlie resting her head on rubys shoulder and kept a tight hold on her hand.

It was really late that night now and charlie and ruby were still in the same positions

ruby:charlie i want you to i love you so much and always will

charlie:i love you to rubes no matter what.

ruby:your the best big sister ever.

charlie:ruby there's somrthing i have to tell you that i should have told you years ago as charlie kept on talking when suddenly the machines starting beeping and ruby drew hwe last breath,as charlie sat there she finished of the last word of her sentence but it was too late ruby was gone and she didnt get the chance to tell her.

Behind charlie stood angelo she didnt hear him come in,he went over to charlie and put his hand around her and said im sorry charlie

charlie sat there froze not knowing what to do.she had gone gone now forever and she would never no the truth.

3weeks later

charlie hated her life without ruby every morning she got up feeling the same sadness and hurt that only coould be healed by her sister being alive.

she arrived into work and there to greet her was angelo. He came up to the desk to charlie and asked was she ok?

charlie:yes i will be if i was left alone to do my job.

angelo:charlie im only trying to help i no you havent being copying since ruby died.

charlie:im ok

angelo:i heard what you said that night when ruby died i heard everything you said its hard when you lose a

charlie:shut up now angelo you dont no anything.

with that charlie walked off into her office.

later that night charlie was at noahs bar,angelo had arraived he went and sat down with charlie.

she didnt say anything to him just sat there still drinking her bottles of beer.

angelo:charlie what i said today about what i heard you say i think you should talk about it.

charlie:no i shoudnt its in the past now and rubys gone there is not point there isnt even any point of me living she was all i had.

angelo:charlie dont think like that ruby woudnt want you to be feeling like this she loved you to much to see you miserable.

charlie:i wonder would she hav loved me so much if she knew the truth?

angelo:how come you have never told her or how come she doesnt no i find it a bit confusing.

charlie:it was easyier that way

angelo:hows that?

charlie: it just was?

angelo:charlie i really dony understand how was it easier to pretend your daughter is your sister and why would you want to do that anyway.i understand you must have been young having her but that still doesnt explain why you pretend she's yoyr sister.

charlie:its complicated.

angelo:tell me then it might help you aswell telling someone

charlie:maybe so......i was 14 when i got pregent with ruby,every parents worst nightmare finding out their teenage daughter is pregant.

angelo:yeah i sure it would be but what about the father and how come you pretended she was your sister for the last 16 yrs.

charlie:there was no father in the picture

angelo:i dont understand what he did a runner when he found out?

charlie:no charlie took along pause ............................................................ i was raped!

angelo:omg charlie im sooo sorry for draging it up

charlie:its ok maybe its time i come to face with ive been lying for 16yrs.so when mum and dad found out they wanted me to get an obortain,i never thought bought killing my baby i wasnt happy that i had that evil mans child growing inside me but also i didnt want to harm my baby because it wasnt the babys fault.

anyhow it turned out i was far to gone to get terminate the baby,so i went through with the pregency then ruby was born.

she was perfect them big brown eyes i didnt see a bit of him in her she was so tiny and as soon as i see her i fell in love with my baby girl,but mum and dad didnt want me to keep her they coudnt put her up for adoption because of dad being a cop and that and didnt ant anyone else to find out so we moved to sydney and they raised ruby as their daughter.

so for the past 16yrs i have been pretending to myself,ruby and the whole world that she was my sister well in fact she was my little girl my daughter... who i wanted to be a mum to her.....

i was a mother and my daughter didnt even no it,ruby will never no that im her mother....

tears are rolling down charlies face

angelo:charlie im soo sorry it must have been so hard for you to live with this every single day,you deserved to be her mum nd i think ruby would have been very proud if she knew you were her mum.

charlie went nack to angelos for a few more drinks........

Warnings:sucidal attempt Chapter 4

Charlie woke up with a banging headache after too much to drink the nite before,but this wasn't the worst of it,it's who's bed she is after waking up in.

After going back to Angelos place and having a few drinks to heal the pain she was feeling after losing Ruby,she had made a drunken mistake by sleeping with


Charlie quickley jumped out of Angelo's bed and threw on her clothe's and quielty as she could left the house without waking Angelo up.She walked all the way home and all that was going through her head was how could she have done that,Angelo of all people,he killed her friend Jack after all.

Earlier on that day!

Charlie was in the station and Angelo arrived for his shift.

Angelo: were did you rush off to this moring?

Charlie:I had things to do! Look Angelo what happened last night should never have happened we both had to much to drink.

Angelo:But charlie..

Charlie:No Angelo it was a mistake and everything i told you about Ruby I don't want you telling a soul ok!

Angelo:I wont tell anyone Charlie,but you gotta talk to someone about it,bottling it up is no good.

Charlie:I have kept it to myself for the past 16years I don't think it will hurt anymore.

With that Charlie walked off into her office and Angelo got on with his work.

There was an awarkdness between them all day.

Later that evening

Charlie was in the house by herself as Leah and VJ had gone to vist Leah's mother for week.

She was sat on the couch with a wine glass and a bottle of wine.

All she did since Ruby passed away was work, come home a bottle of wine and cry herself to sleep.

But the wine wasn't working anymore,it only healed so much of her pain,all she could feel was the longing for her daughter back so that she could be a mother to her.

Charlie sat there for half an hour and had finished two bottles of wine,she no longer could bear the hurt inside her for the daughter she had lost for good this time.

She went out into the kitchen and searched the cupboards and found two boxe's of painkillers.

She went back into the sitting room and started swallowing handfulls of the tablets,she no longer wanted to live without Ruby,she needed her.

She fell back onto the couch after consuming 4 handfuls of painkillers.

Chapter 5

Angelo decided to call round to Charlie as they didnt get the chance to talk about what happened.

When he arrived at the house it was in complete darkness apart from the flashing of the TV.

Angelo knocked on the door but got no answer,he knocked again louder,but there was still no answer.

He went round to the window,he could see Charlie lying on the couch, looking pale and in need of help,and beside her were the empty wine bottles.

He ran around to the front door and this time booted the door in,after a couple of attempts he managed to get into the house.

He ran straight into the sitting room and tryed waking Charlie up,but there was no movement out of her,only till then he noticed the empty painkiller boxe's.

He quickly grabbed the telephone and rang for an ambulance,while the ambulance were on there way he sat on the floor with Charlie cradled in his warms begging her to wake up.

Angelo:Please Charlie wake up,don't do this to me I love You....

Angelo's pleads were stopped by the arrival of the ambulance,they qucikly put Charlie on the stretcher and brought her to the hoisptal.

Angelo followed in his car.

At the hoisptal the docters were rushing in and out of the room where Charlie was,Angelo didn't no what was happening?

He seen rachel and asked her what was happening,was Charlie going to be ok?

Rachel:I'm not sure Angelo but i'll go and see how she is doing and come back and let no.

Angelo:ok Rachel thanks.

Ten minutes had gone by,fifteen,there was still no news on how she was doing.

Then Rachel came out of the room and over to Angelo.

Rachel:we have managed to pump all of the painkillers out of her stomach,she'e going to be ok now,she will be in a bit of pain for a few hours though.

Angelo:oh Thank god for that,thankyou Rachel.

Rachel:It's no problrm Angelo,but she is very lucky if you didnt arrive she woundnt be here right now!it would have been too late for her.

An hour later Angelo was sat beside Charlie's hoisptal bed,she was still asleep.

He sat there watching her sleeping looking peaceful,he coudn't believe what had just happened she wanted Ruby back so much she was giving up her life to be with her.

Then all of a sudden Angelo's thoughts were interupted by the coughing coming from the bed.

Angelo:Hey your awake do you know how long ive been sat here?

Charlie:What am i doing here?I shoudnt be here,I want to be with Ruby.

Angelo went closer to the bed and put his arms around Charlie.

Angelo:Come here Charlie i know you want Ruby back but she isnt coming back she has gone for good,and you have to get on with your life.

Charlie:I don't have a life if i don't have Ruby.

Angelo:Charlie yes you do,you just think that at this minute but you have the rest of your life to live yet.

Ruby woudn't of wanted you to do this,she loved you to much,she would of wanted you to be happy and move on.

With that Charlie looked at Angelo and by her expression Angelo knew he had got through to her.She just looked at angelo and rested her head back on his chest,and kept a tight hold on him.
