Long Road Home
"Officer Johnson I am not going to press charges on him. I want him kept in the cell until I can talk to Johnny and Cameron about some things please promise me you can do this?" I asked him with a waver in my voice. While everyone looked at me as I had lost my mind.
"I will explain it to you all after we leave here just trust me on this guys." I told the group while they looked at me in shock.
"Only if this is what you want boy your really asking for a lot. If your not going to press charges then I can only hold him for 24 hours thats all you can get." Officer Johnson informed me as he led Trevor out to the car in handcuffs.
Cameron's POV, two hours later, that same day:
"What you mean he has pictures of us and wanted to use them to get you back? I don't understand how you can be so understanding of this whole thing Justin. I mean how do you know that he won't try something else when he gets out?" I asked Justin for the hunderith time.
"Look at me babe you know that your the only one that I want right? I know that he will not do this because he was not going to carry it out this time. The pictures he said he had of us were taken from things we have done around the house so I know that he had no way of taking them; it had to be an inside job. When he told me Randy was the one behind the whole thing that made the decision for me so much easier. You see I am going to act as though nothing happened and slap Randy with everything that I can find to make him pay for messing with us, and Trevor. If you would just talk to him you would understand that he could not have done it." Justin told me while looking into my eyes as if asking me for his permission to continue.
"Ok your so bent on me meeting him then take me to the jail I want to sit and talk to him alone. I want you to get on the phone call whoever you have to make this happen you want me to hear him out then I am going to, but on my terms he still threatened us and I am going to ask him a few things myself." I huffed at Justin.
The sight that I found at the police station broke my heart. There was a man who was more of a boy at his young age in pieces over what had happened. He was just in an uncontrolable mess. The officer that led us to his holding cell told me that he had been in this shape after they booked him for holding and would not stop. As they let me enter his cell Trevor looked up at me and you could see the emptyness in his eyes he truly felt that there was nothing left to live for. He had been caught it was his word aginst Justin Timberlake's father he thought he was a dead man. I tried to hold back my emotions as best I could while I sat down across from him to ask him some questions.
"Look Trevor my name is Cameron I know you already know a great deal about me, and I know quite a bit about you as well. So lets just cut to the chase I don't want you to feel that your going to prison I along with Justin and everyone that we can get are going to get your name cleared in this. I don't know why I feel that I should help you because you were working to destroy everything that I treasure in my life right now, but I know deep down you were doing this to try and better yourself from what you told Justin and what we have been able to find out so far. Just let me put this out on the table if you will help us with what we need to make sure that Randy is put behind bars for a long time. Now come here and let me help you dry those tears and get you ready to face the world again. Justin is trying to get you out of here tonight so that we can get this all taken care of and quick." I explained to a shocked Trevor as he slowly made his way to me and let me hold him in a hug and wipe his tears away that I hoped I would never have to see again on his handsome face. It was no wonder Justin had been attracted to him. He is a very good looking guy. He's not my Justin, but he is goodlooking.
Meanwhile, Justin's POV:
"What do you mean that Randy is not who we thought it was. I had you send the police to my fathers house for nothing! How could that be we both heard him confess that it was him who gave him the pictures he even said daddy dearest." I yelled out in the small office of the jail on the brink of tears.
"Son, calm down your father told us everything and even allowed us to look into his home and office he actually put us on the right track to find the real Randy. Do you happen to know everyone on your tour? I mean by name can you tell me the sound guys, lighting, stage hands? I did'nt thing so I would not be able to either. It just so happens that a Randy Douglas was hired on your crew for the U.S. tour as a backstage hand to make sure your dressing rooms and tour bus was stocked with what you would need or get it for you kind of like a gopher. So he had all kinds of access to your personal stuff and life at the same time and you would have never known it. We found him at the studio trying to get ahold of Trevor on his cell phone. So we have requested a copy of his phone records as well as other things that will help to put him away for a long time. Justin it was not your father but a crazed worker inside your entourage." Officer Johnson informed me while showing me what little he could to let me know that indeed it was not my father.
"Oh God no I have so destroyed my relationship with dad then I accused him of something that could have been a life changing thing. I can't face him again." I started to bawl.
As I started to break down in the small office of that station I felt strong arms wrap around me and take me in a hug that could only have been my fathers. I looked up at him with watery eyes and he shushed me with a finger on his lips and just held me.
"Justin I know that things have not always been close between us after the divorce, but I would never hurt you on purpose. Granted I was not to happy about you bringing Cameron home let alone the fact that he has a small son, but I have grown to love both of them and know they are good for you. I had a feeling that this Randy guy was up to something when I got a call from Chocolate telling me he had caught him snooping around during the Tennessee shows backstage and was in your dressing room more than the other guys. So I did a little research myself into his background and found a lot of info on him that I have collected and given to the police. We should have enough to put him away, and if you can convince Trevor to testify aginst him then we can have him put away for a long time." Dad told me while holding me and rocking me in an embrace that I had not felt sence I was a little boy.
"Justin how in the hell can you stand to be around him?" Cameron questioned as he came into the small office to find me now standing beside my dad.
"Listen, Cameron. He's not the Randy we were after. It was a huge misunderstanding." I told him as I explained what had just happend and been reviled to me in this small office just a few minutes before.
"So do you think that Trevor will confess to what Randy was doing?" I asked Cameron while looking between him and Randy.
"Justin right now he would confess he was Hitler if he thought it would help him out of this. Of course he will no questions asked about that. We had a long talk while you were in here. Oh and by the way we have a house guest once he is released from here." I responded while smiling at Officer Johnson.
"Well in that case I just need someone to sign these papers to have him released and once we get everything fixed here I can contact you about the hearing and how to take care of Randy. Is that ok with all of you?" Officer Johnson questioned us all.
"I think I can speak for us all and say thats great I want to get out of here and get back home. I know that Cody must be going crazy without his daddy at home, and from the sound of it we have a guest that needs to get settled in as well." I stated while signing the release form to get Trevor out of his iron cage.
How in the world had my life went from being over to just starting again in the matter of hours I have no idea, but I know who I owe it to. The two men in the front seat of this car. Justin has been so understanding of everything that I don't know what to think, and Cameron must have a heart of gold to allow me into their home like this until we can get everything settled. The thought that I am going to be given the help I need again is just so overwhelimg that I feel I could cry for hours. Justin really ment what he said that he would help me all I had to do was ask. Now here I am setting in the driveway of Justin Timberlake ready to do something that I felt would never happen again after I got wraped up with Randy. I am actually going to be a free man to make my own choices again, and with the help of these two I am going to be in a better place in my life than I have ever been before.
"Hey, Trevor snap out of it were here. You can get out of the car now. You were miles away just then you ok?" Cameron giggled while waving a hand infront of my face.
"Yeah I'm ok I think I am going to be great with a little time and some help from both of you." I weakly said.
As I lead Trevor into the house I could feel him tense up when he saw Lynn holding a squrming Cody who when he saw me started clapping his hands together and saying dada over and over again while trying his best to get down. I closed the door behind me and grabbed my son from Lynn's waiting arms and held him and just closed my eyes as his little arms wrapped so tightly around my neck I felt I would loose my breath.
"It's ok, Cody. Daddy's here and so is poppa were not going anywhere. You can loosen your grip baby." I soothed him while giving him a kiss on his head.
"Momma, this is Trevor he is going to be staying with us for awhile until we can get everything settled that has happened today. I'm sure that dad told you what happened." Justin quietly told Lynn.
"Yeah I know who this is, and I know that if he does anything to hurt my family again I will personally hang him up by his balls and watch him choke. Do you understand that, young man?" she questioned a frightened Trevor.
"Yes ma'am I don't plan on doing anything to hurt anyone. I just want to get this all over and done with so that I can start living for me again." was his hushed reply.
"Good. I expected that you boys might be hungry so I put some leftovers in the kitchen just heat them up and put the dishes in the dishwasher. I know you need to settle in after a busy day so I will just let myself out. Call if you need anything." Lynn stated while heading out the door closing it behind her.
"Who dat?" Cody asked while pointing his little fingers at Trevor once the door was closed.
"Baby, that's Trevor. he is a friend of Justin and mine so you be nice to him understand?" I told him while smiling at Trevor.
"Ok who's ready to eat? Cuz I know that I am!" I heard Justin shout from the kitchen.
Cameron made his way toward what I guessed was the kitchen with Cody in tow and and follow me gesture that I did not argue with. Once I was in the kitchen the spread of food that I saw before me was enough to feed a football team I thought.
"Yeah mom likes to cook when she is nervous." Justin answered my unasked question.
Eating with the three of them was a challange as well as a joy. Justin kept shoving food down and Cameron kept trying to feed Cody while sneaking a bite for himself and trying to keep Cody from wearing most of his instead of eating it. Might I add the goofy faces that Justin made to Cody did nothing to help him keep the food in his mouth. To look at us right now it would seem that nothing had happened at all today I just hope that we can keep this level of happiness going.
