As they were eating and talking about old times, there was a door
knock at the door. Mrs. Marshall got
up to answer the door. "Hi, Mrs. Marshall, is Denise here? I've been
worried, looking for her." A male
voice said concerned. "Yes, she's having dinner with us." Vanessa
Marshall said , her eyes showing disgust.
"Come in, Dylan." JC watched Denise's expression of wonder changed
to fear. Quickly, Denise jumped up as JC
and Justin looked at each other with concern. "Hi, Dylan. I'm surprised
to see you." "Denise, where were you? I
called your cell phone. I was very worried." Dylan said with frustration
in his voice. "She had to go do some errands
pick up some guest of ours." ,Vanessa jumped to her defense. "This is
Joshua Chasez, Tomeeka's godfather. And
these are his friends Justin , Lance , Mike, Joey, Chris, and Tiny." They all
said hello to him and Dylan said hi back, but
kept an eye fiercely on Denise. "Denise we have to go. NOW." "Okay
Dylan. Come on, Tomeeka." "Mommy,
can I stay with Unkle Josh, please?!" Denise silently thanked Tomeeka
for coming up with that idea. She didn't want
her daughter there, knowing what may happen. "I don't know,
Tomeeka. Joshua is busy and - ." "No, It's okay. I wanna
spend time with favorite god - daughter." JC said holding Tomeeka,
protectively for some strange reason. "Okay, then.
I'll bring some clothes over tomorrow. Bye, everyone." She said as she
left. Once they were gone, everyone finished
Eating; being very quiet. JC noticed that Dylan brought a kind of toxic
quiet to the house. He didn't trust who he just met.
That guy reeked of trouble, he just hope that knew would find that out
before it was too late; or was it already too late.
Thankful the Marshall had a huge house. Lance and Justin shared a
room. Mike and Tiny took the guest room .
Joey and Chris, took the room with the bunk beds ,which suited Chris
perfectly. Tomeeka wanted to stay with
Her god-father and there was no way of talking her out of it. Dressed
in her Blue Clues pajamas with her long,
thick brown hair hanging down, she started to jump on the bed. JC
walked in the room on his cell phone. He
had just finished talking on the phone to his parents, now he was on
the phone with Johnny. ".Yeah? Wow.
So, we got the photo shoot rescheduled? After RFK? Okay." JC said
sitting on the bed motioning Tomeeka
to stop and sit down. Tomeeka leaned to hear who was on the phone.
"Also you guys need to come up with a
video idea and location for the single 'This I Promise You." Johnny
yawned into the phone. "I know. And we will.
We're all here, so we can have the meeting here." "Ok. Well get some
sleep and check back tomorrow. Tell
Meeka I said goodnight." JC smiles at Tomeeka. "Johnny said
goodnight Meeka." "Night, Mr. Johnny!"
Tomeeka chirped into the phone. "Later, JC." "Later, Johnny." Click. JC
went to tell the guys about
what Johnny said . When he finished, he came back to find Tomeeka
fast asleep. He laid down and snuggled
near her. He smiled as he stretched out on the bed , protecting her as
they both lay peacefully.
