you have the right to remain silent, but no one else will be using theirs

Delaney Hammond, Sr., does not know that he is going to be arrested. It is not hard to find his flight, learn that the chauffeur can also fly the tiny family airplane and will be bringing the boss directly to Forks's little airport to save transit time, and be there to meet them at the airport with a pair of uniforms.

So Charlie does all that.

"Delaney Hammond, you are under arrest," Charlie says, while Joshua puts on cuffs and Terry makes sure the chauffeur isn't going to interfere. "You have the right to remain silent..." The Miranda rights just pour out, like they're all one word; Charlie doesn't really think about them. He doesn't even skip the part about how this ridiculously rich person could be provided a public defender if he cannot afford one.

Delaney Hammond, Sr., does not indeed know that he is going to be arrested.

In fact, while he is being arrested, he almost seems to continue not knowing. A look of appalled disbelief settles on his face and shows no signs of leaving; he offers no physical resistance and doesn't even laugh at the notion of his being unable to afford something.

[Ooh boy,] Alice says wryly—half excited, half apprehensive.

Meanwhile, Mr. Hammond has recovered enough awareness to settle into a cold fury, and Theo... Theo has driven back to the house alone.



Not very long after that, one of the family cars pulls up at the police station and Judith Erskine Hammond steps out, dressed as formally and impeccably as ever.

"Where is my husband?" she asks, in a voice that is just slightly unsteady.

"What on Earth for?"

"With respect," she says flatly, "I am not in the mood for games."

She presses her lips together, takes a deep breath, and lets it out slowly.

When she says, "May I speak with him, please?" her voice is almost level.

Mr. Hammond looks up at her approach, and then huffs a disappointed sigh when she comes into view. "Oh," he says contemptuously, "it's you."

"It's me," she agrees. "Should I apologize for the mortal sin of not being your lawyer?"

"Be reasonable, Judith," he says. "I'm sure you want this nonsense over with as much as I do."

"Yes," she muses, with an odd note in her voice. "I think that's true."

"What now?" he grumbles.

"Have I ever told you how much I hate it when you tell me to be reasonable?"

"Now is not the time, Judith."

"On the contrary," says Judith, "I think the time is exactly right."

There is a pause; a rustle, a clink; a shocked intake of breath; a roar.

Judith Erskine sweeps out of the short corridor with too-bright eyes and no rings on her left hand.

She calls Junior from the car, although she hasn't the faintest idea what she is going to say.

Junior does not answer his phone.

Judith gets out and marches right back into the station.

"I don't suppose you can tell me where to find my son?"

That actually gets a small smile out of her. She'll have to apologize to Bella for trying to press her into service as an emergency exit.

She tries the cellphone first.

"Sorry, no," she says. "It's Judith. Do you know where my son is, by any chance?"

[...The fuck?] says Alice.

His mother lets out a breath. "That'll do," she says.
edgeofyourseat: Confused or hurt. (⑿ never been born at all)

[Uhhhhh,] says Alice.

"If you see him before I do, will you tell him I called?"
edgeofyourseat: Thoughtful. Possibly shirtless. (⑽ I kinda like it)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-09-27 08:04 pm (UTC)(link)
[I guess?] he says. [I mean, yeah. I would. I just dunno what she wants to get ahold of me for.]

"Thank you," Judith says graciously.
