After the funeral, everybody went over to Allyson’s house to hang out and try to relax. Shelby told Campbell and Devin that they could hang out for a few hours, but would need to be home by dinner time. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.
The police raided the house while they were all there. Everybody was taken to jail and charged with various drug possession charges. They had to spend the night in jail and was released after seeing the judge.
Shelby was a bit more than upset when she finally was able to take the boys home.
“Go to your room. I don’t want to see your faces right now.”
“I didn’t do anything, Mom…”
“Go to your room, Campbell.”
He looked at his father who only nodded his head. It really sucked that he was getting punished just for being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Andy followed the boys to their room. “I’m disappointed in both of you.”
“I didn’t do anything, Grandpa. I swear.”
Andy shook his head. “They drug tested you at the station, Campbell. Both of you tested positive.”
Campbell didn’t bother trying to explain to his grandfather that it was the medication from Dr. Brown that was giving a false positive result. He had already attempted to explain it to his parents and didn’t get anywhere.
“Since none of you will listen, just leave me alone.”
Andy did not like the attitude he was getting from the boy. “As long as you are living in my house, you will follow my rules. Your future drug tests better come back negative. I won’t have that shit in my home.”
Campbell looked at his grandfather. “If it wasn’t for this monitor on my ankle, I wouldn’t be here. None of you care enough to listen anyway, so what does it even matter?”
He went into the bathroom to get away from his grandfather. He heard the bedroom door slam not long after. He opened the medicine cabinet and took out his bottle of meds from the doctor. He knew it was going to be rough without them, but he was not going to have another false drug test.
He removed the lid from the bottle and dumped the contents into the toilet.
