Working for the Newsies

Taylor Jacobs (yes Davey's sister) is just a normal girl with big dreams. She hopes that one day she'll make it on broadway.

Racetrack (Race) is a broadway star who loves the attention and has all the girls calling his name. The thing is he just wants to have a normal life.

What happens when their two worlds collide? Will Taylor finally get her wish to be on broadway? Will Race finally have a normal life?

17. Crutchy What Happened?

Jack's POV

As Davey, Les and I drove home from the airport it was quiet in the car. Les was reading and it was quiet between Davey and I. After a while Davey was the first to speak. "What did Taylor mean when she said to ask Crutchy?" I knew the answer but didn't say anything.

"Jack?" Davey asked. I didn't realize that Davey was waiting for an answer. I stayed quiet for a moment then replied, "While you were in the hospital, I came over and hung out with Les and Taylor. When I left to go home I had a dream that night." "About?" Davey asked. "It was the scene in the Newsies where we were all celebrating then Snyder showed up and beat Crutchy up then took him away to the Refuge." I replied. "Yea" Davey said. "Well I hid behind a crate and saw Taylor trying to help Crutchy then she was taken to the Refuge as well. I don't know what happened after that." I finished.

Davey looked at me stunned. "Omg! I'm going to kill Snyder when I see him!" Davey gritted through his teeth. "Well lets go talk to Crutchy and get the rest of the story then you can do what you please with Snyder." I said. "Alright" Davey replied.

Crutchy's POV

I was at home visiting my family when I heard someone pull up outside then knock on the door. I got up from the couch and went to answer it and found Jack, Davey, and Les standing there.

"Hey guys what's up?" I asked. "Hey Crutchy. Can we come in?" Davey asked. "Sure" I replied. I stepped aside and the three of them walked in. We then walked to the living room. "Hey Jack! How are you?" My dad shook Jack's hand. "I'm good. We just came from the zoo." Jack replied. "That's great! Well we will leave you boys to talk." My dad said. "Thanks dad" I smiled and my parents left.

The four of us sat on the couch and it was quiet. "What did you want to talk about?" I asked. "We saw Taylor today." Davey said. "Where?" "The airport." Jack replied. "What happened?" I asked. "Davey would you like to explain?" Jack looked at Davey. "Sure Jack" Davey said and he began the story.

"So Jack, Les and I were at waiting at the airport for Taylor when she walked in with the group of guys she's working for over the summer. Just so you all know she's on Broadway. So anyway, I saw Spec's and Jack walk up and talk to me like usual. Then I saw Taylor with Race and everything went downhill after that." Davey finished explaining.

"So what's the point?" I asked. "Taylor walked up to me as Jack and Les came back. She had cuts and bruises on her face and she looked scared of me. I don't know why." Davey replied. I looked at them still confused. "What Davey is trying to say Crutchy is that why would Taylor have cuts and bruises on her face? Where did she get them from?" Jack asked.

I knew the answer right away but didn't say anything. Jack and Davey looked at me waiting for an answer. "The only logical explanation I could think of is when Taylor and I were in the Refuge." I finally said. "Davey and Jack looked at each other. "I knew it!" Jack whispered. "I'm going to kill Snyder!" He yelled. "What happened in the Refuge?" Davey asked. "Nothing happened to me thankfully but with Taylor I'd rather not get into it. You'd have to talk to her." "I'll try but thanks for the update man." Davey said.

Davey's POV

Jack was walking back and forth and ready to punch someone until Les was getting tired. It was getting late anyway so I decided to let Crutchy get to bed. Les was falling asleep and I told Jack it was time to go. Crutchy walked us to the door while I carried Les.

We walked outside and said our goodbyes. "I hope you get home safely." Crutchy shouted. "Thanks Crutchy. We will." I shouted back. The three of us got in Jack's car. Jack didn't want to drive so I drove everyone home.

We pulled up to my house and got out and we staggered into the entry hall and upstairs to our rooms. Jack stayed the night because he didn't want to go home. Les immediately fell asleep and I fell asleep a little while later. I don't know about Jack but I would probably find out in the morning.
