Tristan's High School Life - 10. Chapter 10

Just a reminder:

Helen and Jerry Woolery are Jaxson "Jack" parents

Beth and Stan Craft are Tracy's parents

TJ’s point of view

 

Using teleportation I showed up curbside to a place I hadn’t been in ages and as I looked up the front door opened

“For goodness sakes TJ don’t just stand there” Helen said. Now I know where Jack gets that phrase from

“Hi Helen” I said as I walked up the path pulling my suit cases

“Hello TJ” Beth said from the chair “Stan and Jerry went to the store”

“I hope I’m not an inconvenience” I said

“Non-sense, you are our grandson” Helen said

“How are you and Jerry doing?” I asked

“We are doing much better and thank you for the wedding gift, you didn’t have to” Helen said while ambling to the kitchen

“Jackson insisted we get you guys something” I said taking a seat

“TJ, Jack told us everything and you should know we all have your back” Beth said

“I appreciate it but are you sure they won’t find me here?” I asked out of concern

“Jack and Tracy were adamant that you come here. They will look for you in New York before thinking about Ohio” Beth replied

Just then Stan and Jerry returned.

“Oh TJ you’re here already” Stan said stopping in the doorway

“Is that a problem?” I asked

“Well no” Stan said and stepped aside and behind him were my west coast friends Rusty, Mark, Brooks and Miles

“Oh my god” I said standing up

“What’s going on hot stuff” Rusty said closing the distance and hugged me

“What, How” I sputtered

“Jackson” Miles said closing the door

“He made a phone call and asked us to come stay with you. He figured being with the grandparents would drive you nuts” Brooks said coming in for a hug

“Now you boys will be staying across the street at our house and we are staying with the Woolery’s” Stan said

“Thanks, Mr. Craft” Mark said

“Stan, take them over and get them settled and then we can order some dinner” Beth said

“Am I staying there or here?” I asked

“Here” Jackson said appearing

“Jackson, give some warning or something. We still can’t believe you can teleport” Helen said clutching her chest

“Hi Daddy” Katie said

“I told you to stay home Katie” Jackson said to her

“I know but the protection daddy needs has to come from Tristan, Mattie and I.” Katie said

“Protection?” Miles said

“It’s nothing” Jackson said giving Katie a glare

“Men, let’s move out” Jerry said with Stan following them

Just then Tristan, Mattie and Jamie appeared

“Hey you forgot me” Jamie said glaring at Katie

“Whatever” Katie said spinning on her heals “Let’s get to work”

I watched as they all held hands and mumbled some indistinct words while Beth and Helen watched in amazement. I saw several flashes of light emit from them but didn’t know what was going on.

“Now when they get back we need to do this over there” Tristan said

“What exactly did you do?” I asked

“We made it so you can’t be found” Jamie said

“Like an invisibility cloak from the books Tristan read us” Mattie chime in

“How does it work?” I asked

“Well part of what we did protects the house. You can only enter if your aura is good.” Katie said

“Basically if someone’s intent is to arrest you they can’t enter the house. For example they try to break a window it is like rubber” Tristan said “Now we vetted your friends and you are safe with them.”

“Why do you have to repeat it over there?” I asked pointing in the direction of the Craft’s house

“To protect your friends TJ, they don’t have powers” Tristan said rolling his eyes

“You act like I should know this” I said

“Duh Daddy you should” Jamie said

I watched them disappear instantly as Stan and the gang came back.

“Any decision on dinner?” Stan asked

“I was thinking we could order in maybe Chinese or pizza?” Beth said

“Let’s do that Italian place that Ron introduced us too” Jerry said

“Sounds like a plan” I said remembering the place he was talking about. I suddenly had grief wash over me as Ron and Tony were the link to my father and I missed them terribly. There was a knock at the door and I went around the corner as we weren’t expecting anyone else.

“Can I help you sir?” Jerry said opening the door slightly

“I’m not sure but I got an email telling me to come here” the man said and I instantly recognized his voice

“Connor?” I said coming around the corner

“TJ?” Connor said looking at me

“Yeah it’s me, come on in” I said

“We haven’t talked in ages” Connor said

“You’re right I think the last talk we had was when I told you my real name and not my stage name” I said thinking back

“No we talked when I graduated and told you I was going to law school” Connor said matter of factly

“That’s right and you were getting married” I said

“Yeah that totally didn’t work out and I am glad I found out before we did” Connor said taking a seat and Jerry handed me the note and I instantly knew who sent it

“So this email came from my son” I said

“Your son?” Connor said

“Yeah, I’m married and have a few kids” I said

“A few? TJ be honest with the boy” Helen said

“Well I have 9 kids” I said

“9 kids, what the hell TJ?” Connor said

“Yeah it sorta just happened” I said

“Well I’d say.” Connor said chuckling “So what did he mean you needed help”?”

“I’m being framed for murder” I said

“Oh so you’re the John Doe that’s been clogging the docket” Connor said

“I guess” I shrugged

“How did your son know I was a criminal law attorney?” Conner asked

“I recently told him about you and your picture scandal” I said and he blushed

“I’ll never forget that.” Connor said choking up “I recently found out my youngest brother was gay and committed suicide”

“Oh no” I said

“Yeah, I was sent a note that he wrote me. My parents made his life miserable when he came out and he desperately tried to find me but he couldn’t. Probably because of my name change but my parents had to trouble when they sent me the letter” Connor said

“What a piece of work” I said

“Yes and I’ve read a lot about your work” Connor said

“Yeah I’ve tried to help people.” I said

“Well I’d like to help you” He replied

“My father in law is my lawyer.” I said

“Who is that” Connor asked

“Jaxson Woolery” I said proudly

“The Jaxson Woolery?” Connor said excitedly

“You’ve heard of him?” I asked

“Dude I studied his cases in law school. He’s a fucking legend” Connor said

“Why thank you” Helen said smiling

“That’s Jaxson’s mom” I said

“Nice to meet you Mrs. Woolery” Connor said “I think with my team and Jaxson’s we can beat these charges”

“I sure hope so” I said

Dinner arrived and we all ate and reminisced about our time in San Francisco. There were many stories and embarrassing moments had by all but a good night. When I went upstairs for bed I found Tristan sitting on my bed

“Hey buddy” I said

“Hey TJ, I figured out who did it.” Tristan said

“What? How?” I said puzzled

“Don’t get mad but I went to San Diego and went through all the files and then to the house and snooped.” Tristan said

“What did you find?” I asked

“That my dad’s never removed the backup security cams that were installed that don’t overwrite” Tristan said holding up a thumb drive

“What did you find?” I asked

“Not a what but a who” Tristan said smirking

“We are way more alike” I said matching his smirk

Just then I heard shouting outside

“He’s in here” the voice shouted

“San Diego PD, OPEN UP” the men shouted

No one in the house moved

“Break the door” I heard someone bark and they hit the door but it didn’t budge

“I’ll take care of it” another voice said “Try now”

They hit the door but it didn’t budge but this time the battering ram bounced off and out of the officers hands hitting the lady in the face

“Back in a jiff TJ” Tristan said and vanished

“Hope you liked the battering ram to the face you hippie” I heard Tristan say

“Oh you little” she tried to sputter but the ram knocked most of her teeth out

Just then I heard what sounded like a rumble of thunder and it got bright outside

“I should have known it was you” I heard CC say

“You want a piece of me?” The other lady said

“Dear, looks like there are many pieces of you” CC said laughing as time stopped

I watched as Katie appeared and with a wave of her hand the battering ram gave chase to the woman who tried to stop it.

“My grandchildren are stronger than you” CC said

“Never” she said defiantly

There was a flash and the woman attempted to leave but things didn’t go as expected and she was frozen to the ground.

“You are a vile evil person” Mattie said

“You should have known better than to attack us” Jamie said as the others formed a circle around her.

It was then I recognized the voice as I had a flash in my head “Emma”

Truth be told I had forgotten about her and when I was looking for something or someone in the chapters I stumbled across her. The last part of the story was my favorite.

Based on your last chapter comments it sounds like a lightbulb went on and you though of this chapter pretty impressive. 

I guess  people like Emma could do some pretty supernatural things I assume you worked out the details on how she almost framed TJ .Did she "create " some of TJ's DNA to put at the scene among other things?

Yeah I had an aha moment and knew what I wanted to do.

We aren't done with Emma and the next chapter will fill in some gaps. Including a small surprise...and no we aren't raising the dead. One of the other kids steps forward and takes care of Emma and that's not the surprise.
