Tristan's High School Life - 19. Chapter 19

A few familiar names pop up in conversation, that being said:

Please remember this is FICTION and not based on any real events. Names are used but the people's behavior is a figment of my imagination.

Please keep all comments relevant to the story at hand and not of any CURRENT events. I would hate to see anyone violate the terms of GA's site.

Tristan’s POV

“What did he mean sex room” TJ said eyes narrowing in on me

“Well” I started before Hunter interrupted “He wants one like you and Daddy have”

“What?” Jack choked out

“Yeah Dad and Daddy have their own room” Hunter said innocently while we all turned to look at TJ

“No one and I mean no one knows about it” TJ said meekly

“Well obviously someone does” CC said turning towards Hunter and I

“You forget we can read minds” I said and smirked watching the color drain from TJ’s face

“Ok, I get that they have one but why would you want one” Jack asked

“Sometimes I just want to have my own space. Try living in a house with 10 other people and see how much privacy you get” I said getting irritated

“The other issue here at hand here is that Hunter should not be blurting out other people’s wants and desires” TJ said glaring at Hunter

“Well” Hunter said ashamed and looking at the floor “I wanted to help him and didn’t think you’d mind”

“You’d didn’t think I’d mind?” TJ said turning redder by the second

“Calm down TJ before you lose it” CC said trying to control the situation

“Grandma I would like my own space” I said looking at her

“We carved out a good chunk of space for you when we designed TJ and Jackson’s apartment” CC replied

“I know but I still get bothered by everyone and I try to be accommodating and I’m going to need a place for my tutor since Grandpa is cutting back his time” I said

“I forgot about that” Tracy replied “Maybe I can work something out for you to be there”

“We can come up with some type of plan” TJ said

“I want my own place” I said being defiant

“Tristan why don’t you and I go talk” Grandma said looking at me

“Ok” I said and we went to another room

“What’s going on?” Grandma asked sitting on the bed

“I just feel like I don’t get privacy” I said

“You haven’t mentioned this before, why the change” she asked

“It’s just with Hunter’s new abilities I feel that he knows more than he should” I said

“I see” Grandma replied “Anything specifically?”

“Yeah he knows all about my boy trouble and it’s making me anxious” I said

“Have you told him this?” She asked

“No I haven’t” I replied “I don’t know where to begin”

“Maybe talk about privacy” she began “lead into whatever bothers you”

“I guess but how do I keep everyone out” I pondered out loud

“My guess is have the talk with everyone but with Hunter first and maybe TJ and Jackson should be there” she said “In the mean time I’ll speak with Jasper about carving up some space for you either in your existing room or somewhere for studying”

“That could work” I said

“Anything else?” she asked

“No I think I’m good” I replied and we joined the others

“Jackson has been cleared to medically transported to New York” TJ said as we came into the room

“That’s good news” Grandma said taking a seat on the couch

“Are you ok?” TJ said looking at me

“Yeah, we had a really good talk” I said

“I’m glad” TJ replied with a smile “I’m going to talk with Jasper about some changes that would benefit you and get you a bit more personal space away from everyone else”

“Grandma and I talked about that” I replied

“There is some unused space on Jackson and my floor that we could use for you; I would just need to figure out how to incorporate it into a space for you” TJ said

“What unused space?” Grandma inquired

“We have a whole lounge space on the left side of the floor that has its own en suite” TJ replied

“I forgot about that space” Grandma replied

“The goal was an office eventually for Jackson or I but that’s not going to happen” TJ said

“You should use that for yourselves” I said

“I don’t want to bring home any work and I don’t want to make Jackson sad with an office” TJ replied

“We are meeting with a relator Saturday to go over listing the place” Beth said

“Maybe we should stick around and be here too” Tracy said looking at Jack

“You better not dance for him” Helen said causing Jack to spit his coffee out

“Dance for him?” I asked confused

“It’s a really long story” TJ said blushing

“The neighborhood does not need to see any of that” Jerry said laughing

“Anyhow, I will need to go to San Diego at some point” TJ said

“I don’t think you will have too” Connor said “From what I am hearing they are folding based on the false evidence”

“I spoke with the State’s Attorney General and laid out all the facts of the case to include you being framed and how the police were going on framing you for the situation and we will be settling out of court” Al said

“Yeah TJ with the figures they are talking you won’t have to work” Connor said

“Actually Connor, I’ve never had to work I just do. Jackson and I have managed the money I inherited and his money from being a pop star to the point we barely touch the monthly interest payment. I could quit now and be comfortable until I die” TJ said

“Who manages your account?” Al asked

“My Aunt Kat” TJ replied

“Your cat?” Connor said confused

“Not a cat my Aunt Katie Collins, she goes by Kat and was friends with my parents and her son Lucas is my brother in law” TJ said

“She works part-time at the main law firm and strictly manages TJ’s and Jackson’s funds with our money manager” Jack clarified

“Maybe we can take some of the money and reinvest it in the Shepard Building?” I asked Jack

“We can do that and before I forget we got notice the Baron was upping his monthly donation from 5 million to 10 million” Jack said

“That’s a huge increase” TJ said

“It is but he wanted to make sure things were funded and all the needs met” Jack replied

“Hey TJ could I get space at the building to work?” I asked

“That might be possible” TJ replied

“Maybe we could start a tutoring service or something” I said

“That’s a really good idea” Jack said smiling at me

“Wait who’s Baron?” Connor asked

“Baron Trump and ally of ours” Jack said

“Really?” Al said shocked

“Yeah he helped cut through red tape and helped get things off the ground. He’s held a few donation events to support the center” TJ said

“I never would have guessed” Al said

“Had a lot of us shocked” TJ said “He’s been a really good friend and supported CC in her Mayoral run”

“One of my biggest donors too and he never has once asked for anything in return” CC said “Keeps everything above board”

“Is there anyone else famous you know?” Connor asked

“I’ve met a few people here and there; I do live in New York you know” TJ replied

“Do you mind if I got visit Justin?” I asked wanting to get out of there

“Go ahead and make sure when you get home you let me know” TJ said

“No problem” I said grinning and vanished

I wasn’t sure where Justin was so I sent him a text

T: Hey Jus you up for a visitor?

J: U R back?

T: Yeah came back today

J: Please come over

T: On my way

I teleported to outside his building and the doorman let me in as he said Master Justin was expecting me. I went up to the penthouse floor which wasn’t that long of a ride as the building only had 30 floors.

“Hello Tristan” Isabelle said opening the door

“buenas noches Senora Romero” I replied

“buenas noches, te está esperando en la parte de atrás” She replied pointing down the hall

Translation: Good evening, he's waiting for you in the back

“Gracias” I said smiling making my way to the back and Justin had his back to the doorway and was looking out the window

“Are you from Tennesee?” I asked

“What, no.” Justin responded

“Well you’re the only 10 I see” I said and smirked. He turned around and I was met with a huge smile

“It’s good to see you” Justin said

“You too” I said taking in the bruises on his face and noticed the cast on his arm

“Julian is awake but his memory seems to be shot” Justin said staring off into the distance

“Do they think he has amnesia?” I asked already knowing the answer

“No they said there was some kind of damage” Justin said breaking down

“It will be ok Justin” I said

“No it won’t, I feel like my best friend is gone. He doesn’t remember anything” Justin said between tears.

“Look you still have me” I said “I know I can’t replace what you had”

“I get that but we had so much fun” Justin said

“Who knows maybe he will eventually get his memory back” I said and I mentally made a note to try to fix it

“I sure hope so” Justin said

“Me too” I replied

We sat there for what felt like ages just staring out the window and holding hands.

“It’s getting late boys, I think it’s time for Tristan to go home” Mrs. Romero said coming into the room

“I’m glad you came over” Justin said

“Me too” I said and kissed his cheek

I walked to the elevator and when I got onto the street I teleported back to our building in the city. I was surprised to find Grandma at the island stirring a cup of tea

“Would you like some” she asked

“Yes please” I replied

“How is Justin?” she asked

“Sad about his brother” I replied “Don’t get me started on the bruises”

“That bad huh?” she said placing a mug in front of me

“Yeah, if my dads were already dead” I replied

“I understand” she replied

“So why did you come back early?” I asked

“TJ got Jackson a flight home tomorrow and everyone else will be here too and we are going to have a meeting to discuss the strategy for taking care of Jackson” she replied

“That’s a lot of people” I replied

“Yes it will be and I am planning on a dinner too” she said

I just nodded and finished my tea and went to my room. I remembered to text TJ and told him I was home and going to bed. I didn’t wait for a reply as I tried from everything that was going on.

As I feel asleep I was met with a nightmare to end all nightmares.

Is Tristan talking about a literal nightmare the kind you get when you sleep or is something really happening?As far as Tristan wanting privacy as long as Hunter can teleport everywhere is the there any place he can be alone?

I don't think there's anywhere that Tristan can really get privacy, as Hunter can teleport anywhere.

You know I was thinking the same thing about @Wesley8890 he surely does read fast.

Everyone in their family can teleport Hunter just seems to be better at it. I'm outlining in my head how he's going to get privacy....

There will be a place he can go especially after he and Hunter talk.

Maybe I'll reveal why Jamie had lost his ability for a while

100 books a year, an hour, a minute? I need more context for this response.

Was your school librarian a man by any chance? jk

I know people who hung out in the library... I did in 6th grade but didn't read. Helped the librarian with different things like cleaning and organization and before you ask it was an older woman.

I had volunteered in 5th grade and used to check out the student's books during their library time... by 6th grade things changed. I was also on the TV crew for morning announcements which she ran.

I think Hunter has to know where the person is in order to teleport to them and not just think 'take me to Tristan". Could a Faraday room throw off his abilities?

So about that.... Hunter does know where everyone is at every moment. Kind of hinted at that when he found CC and Emma. 

Without revealing where I am going with the story.... nothing can get in his way. Something will stop him but it is more embarrassing for those involved than Hunter.
