Timothy - 73. Chapter 73

Sitting around the breakfast table, “Tom, if you would like to go after Bruce, you’ll need a lawyer. For statuary rape, the law allows prosecution within 20 years. When was the last time you saw Bruce?”

“The week before he left town. Benny told him someone was checking the newspapers when we were in high school. About two weeks later, he left.”

“And that was the last time he accosted you?”

“Yes”

“How would you like to see him behind bars?”

“What do I need to do?”

“First, you need to hire me as your attorney, and then you need to sign the papers that Stephen has.” I knew Stephen had recorded Tom’s comments.

Tom accompanied Stephen and me to work. I used the notary in my office to notarize the signed papers. Stephen brought in a copy, and to make sure nothing would happen to the original, I had my office notarize the document as an authentic replicate of the original. Stephen took Tom to the airport for his flight home.

That evening, I called Dad and told him Stephen, and I would accompany Mom and him home for the weekend.

I had to file the papers suing Bruce for two million. File Tom’s documents with the police and the DA's office. I needed to give my favorite judge a copy of each. I needed one more piece of evidence. We had to stop at the Motel.

“When are you going to see Rich?”

“I’ll arrange to have dinner with us when we go down.”

That evening Tom called to say he was home. I could tell by his voice; we had lightened his burden.

Mom and Dad showed up for our Friday dinner with Ann Marie. Although I didn’t invite her doctor, he was there, and it seems Ann Marie asked him. Looking at Stephen, I smiled.

We were driving back to Mom and Dad’s when Stephen and I stopped at the Motel. Walking in, the clerk had a big smile. “I have two rooms on the back, and they have a connecting door.”

“I’m sorry, I’m a little hard of hearing. Can you repeat that?” I noticed Stephen reached into his pocket when he said that, and the young man repeated his comment.

“I have a friend who has stayed here and recommended this place. Perhaps you know him, Thomas Boulder.”

“We have a few regulars. Let me check.” We watched as he pulled a register book from the bottom shelf. There was an opened one on the counter. I was confused until I noticed all the names were assigned to those two rooms he recommended. I told him we would take the rooms. I signed the book, Stephen was going to sign, but the clerk said one signature was sufficient.

Later in the room, “We need to get a subpoena for that book, and it will confirm Tom’s comment about spending time here with Bruce.”

I called Rich and told him to meet us at the Motel. “Rich, get a subpoena for the motel register that is used exclusively for rooms 21 and 23. When you arrive, check the book for my entry, it should be the last one. Then meet us in Room 21.”

Then we waited. Forty-five minutes later, Rich was at our door. “Here is the subpoena. I thought it would be best if you served it.”

I looked at Rich, “Would I find your name there?” He just smiled.

Stephen and I took the subpoena to the front office. The same clerk was there. “I would like my boyfriend to sign the book next to my name, and we want to tell people this was a business meeting.” The clerk reached under the counter, brought forth the book, opened to the last page, and there was my signature on the last line. He handed a pen to Stephen, who signed on the following line. I gave him the subpoena for the book. He looked at the paper, and then I could see he was scared.

“If you take that book, I’ll lose my job.”

“Would you rather the police took it?”

“No, but the boss isn’t going to like this.”

“You have the subpoena. Show it to him. When we don’t need it, I’ll return it.”

“Rich, follow us to my parents. I’ll give you a scoop for your newspaper.”

Things are starting to get interesting. The motel has two connecting rooms. At least they get a look at the register.

They also have proof of what Tom told them.

OH MY!!! 😂 I have just the rooms for you! Sounds like this hotel is "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" with a thriving business! I could just feel Tom's relief after he hired Timothy as his attorney. Everyone's moving closer to closure after what this scumbag did to them.  

Yes, I wonder what the next twist will be

I don't feel sorry for the clerk, he must have seen that Tom was there involuntarily and did nothing.  Otherwise he is very stupid.

The healing for Tom has begun. Now mom; she must become aware that she is also partly responsible for Tom's suffering.

What I'm wondering, Benny must have known that Bruce did something to Tom. He was a police officer and would still have to recognize certain behaviors of Tom. Also, I can't imagine that Bruce hasn't been bragging to him about his dominance over Tom.

 

Benny was the one that warned Bruce about the snooping that Tim and Stephen were doing. I'm sure he knew Tom was gay, Bruce may have told him. Mom has a secret and she needs to speak about it.

Two men that the hotel clerk didn't know Tim and Stephen  walk in and he automatically assumes they want those special rooms hmm.I bet there are also two sets of books for tax purposes also.

So Tim mentions to Rich to follow him to his parents house that he has a scoop for him.Would that involve Rich speaking to  Tim's mom for the story?Would she be willing to talk to Rich about it?

Rich may not know it, but he will play an important role in Tim's plan.

The legal noose is getting tighter while Tim and Stephen will leave nothing to chance, no avenue of escape or wiggle room!!!

So Tim has all of his ducks in a row and he has the  ball that will knock them down so Bruce can collect all the dues due to him in prison, interesting developments, I can't wait for the next chapter

With all of the ground work Tim and Stephen has done, it seems a slam dunk.

Separate No-Tell Motel Register 📖may show names of other 'visitors' who don't want to be exposed, like police, judges, town officials and more. Also if the owner keeps a '2nd set of books' that hide 'guests' he's likely not declaring income and paying taxes.  

There's a reason behind sayings like: "Don't poke the bear" 🐻 and "Don't disturb a hornets 🐝 nest". Don't stir up trouble!

Tim and Stephen may have made a bad situation worse if 'others' don't want their 'dirty little secrets' to be made public. By doing so have they put a larger target on their backs 🧨 or family and friends? Will Donnie visit Tim to warn him?

 

You are correct, but they needed the dates of the visits Tom made to prove Tom's statement that Bruce's blackmail was within the time frame needed to prosecute.

Gosh you can't even stay at a motel now without Tim looking into what you are doing! would love to know who owns the motel and if they are connected though. Agree, very interesting turn of events.

Tim and Stephen are rolling thunder for Bruce.  I wonder if Bruce can hear this thunder that will be rolling righ over him. I also think that Rich may just have some other individuals that know what Bruce had been doing al along.  Maybe Rich also has come connections with in the Police Department who either has or knows of some of what has been happening.  Maybe there will end up being some bribe money that is shown around to Tim and to Stephen just to make this small community "just like you home town".  I think findins some others who were repeat victims of dr. Bruce. 

I just hope that there is something that Tim and Stephen have not forgotten.  But then there is Donnie.  Maybe Donnie can give Tim a few hints as well. 

Do you suppose that there will be some political individuals who will suddenly be not so popular any longer or even suddenly leave town. 
Lets hope so>
