Randy must have been a really good kid.
Randy Byrne was Cynthia's twenty year-old son from her first marriage.
Dean could hear Randy taking a deep breath.
Randy quickly added, "We're going to get married."
Randy continued, "Ma's going to be... ."
Randy said, resignation in his voice.
God, Randy, it's your final year!
After they dragged Jen off to confession, the Calvias would stick around and rent the church for the wedding—if Randy was still alive.
Randy and Jen made a great pair and Dean knew it would all work out in the long haul.
At least Randy and Jen had years of history together, most of their education behind them, and what would ultimately prove to be supportive parents.
Randy continued to talk, more rapidly than necessary, mentioning a small wedding.
Silence followed until Randy said, "Hello?"
Dean acknowledged he was still there and started to make an excuse for Cynthia's exit but Randy cut him short.
Randy and Jen love each other.
She opened her purse and took out a picture of Randy Byrne and Jen.
Pumpkin looked at the picture of Randy Byrne, one leg up on a boulder, an I-own-the-world smile on his young face and Jen smiling at him with a look of love.
But here was twenty-year-old Randy Byrne, at the threshold of life, batting .362 with seventeen home runs, a slew of RBI's, and a glove that could stop a freight train, being offered the world!
It was just a silly game— unless of course, you'd played it like Randy Byrne.
Dean only caught snatches, but enough to know Cynthia was speaking to Rose, son Randy, and Jen.
"What about Randy?" he asked.
Randy got money—lots of it—just for signing a contract.
The second income would be a must if Randy were to attend college.
Dean described his conversation with Randy Byrne and detailed his reason for visiting the Whitney Motel.
While the case might be officially closed, Dean felt an obligation to Randy Byrne, as well as his own curiosity, to follow up the March fourth Whitney Motel incident.
Dean telephoned Cynthia Byrne next, but Randy answered.
"Yeah, I guess you're right," Randy answered.
Randy had been told before school about the telephone call from Norfolk and she had dismissed his offer to fly down with her.
She asked for a few minutes to call Randy first and Dean took the time to telephone Fred, filling him in on the latest happenings.
Dean closed his eyes as Randy explained excitedly about an offer to play ball.
Dean promised to talk to Cynthia but Randy was devastated as he ended the call.
God, if Randy were here, I think I would beat him!
But Randy and Jen are adults.
Then he added, Maybe I'll look up this Ridner kid and ask him if the car was still there when he finished, but I'm just checking it out because I promised Randy Byrne I would.
Did you spank Randy?
But in spite of what your mother told you, you never spanked Randy?
It was Cynthia's son, Randy.
Jenny Calvia had been the love of Randy's life since high school.
He felt Randy's pain as if it were his own.
Just tell the truth, Randy.
He thought the world of Randy.
While Cynthia was proud of her son Randy's athletic achievements, she always saw those abilities as a means to an end—not an end in itself.
He was a handsome kid who somehow reminded Dean of Cynthia's son, Randy, but more brash.
Randy, Martha, Fitzgerald, the Dawkins business....
Wedding plans were progressing nicely, now totally out of male hands, and Randy's baseball activities were in high gear.
Randy asked about Fred, and Dean related Fred's latest exploits with the bargains from the props of the play Boo!
It was the same when Randy was in high school.
I guess I should feel better about Randy.
"I think I'll call Randy," she said.
All I could think of was Randy and how lucky we are that he's got his act together in spite of this business with Jen—how much better off he is than Billy— and Jen than Melissa.
He's not much older than Randy.
Besides, I'd heard the story in general from my mother all my life—not about Paul's involvement, but Josh the randy miner and teenage Edith.
Randy Byrne was joyously married with mother Cynthia in proud attendance, attired in her Radisson original dress.
When her son Randy, visiting Bird Song over his Christmas college break, had expressed an interest in the sport, she had a fit.
While Dean had wandered up to the area with Cynthia's son Randy on a few occasions, she had steadfastly stayed away.
Dean could tell from the conversation she was speaking to her son Randy.
Randy hitch-hiked out from college.
Cynthia's son Randy was on his way back to college.
How I wish Victor would choose more randy gents to turn.
He was the husband of Cynthia Cosgrove Byrne and the father of Randy Byrne, a Parkside High School senior.
"The son, Randy Byrne," Dean answered.
Another neighbor's husband drove to the high school for her son Randy, who was at baseball practice.
Randy was so good—so brave about it.
Jeffrey Byrne asked about Randy's ball game and inquired about the mail.
Little things keep popping into mind—like Jeff won't be here for Randy's graduation, or he'll miss a neighbor's surprise party, or we'll never get to the Top of the Mark.
"But now Randy may have a chance for a baseball scholarship," she said proudly.
He and Randy have a bet going about it.
Dean assumed it was Jeff Byrne's son, Randy.
Randy Byrne was in his usual place at shortstop, but the young man was much more subdued than the last time Dean had seen him play.
It contained 78 dollars, a half-dozen credit cards, a few business cards and two pictures, one a duplicate of the desktop photo of Cynthia Byrne and the other a grade school picture Dean assumed to be of Byrne's son, Randy.
"Randy and I tried to remember the day you said Jeff was absent from work," she said.
It was a Tuesday so I was at class and Randy at baseball practice—otherwise we remembered nothing.
Evidently it was Randy Byrne.
Randy Byrne was dressed in jeans and sweater and seemed at ease around adults, more so than most his age.
After offering condolences for Randy's father, Dean added, "It's a little early for a Saturday night, isn't it?"
Dean patted him on the shoulder and started to leave but Randy stopped him.
Randy Byrne managed a smile but a fool could tell he wasn't buying.
He assumed the young man occupied the room for the same purposes as Randy's friend, Bobby Ridner.
He told her of his conversation with Parkside and she was appreciative that word was being conveyed to Randy.
She conveyed the information to son Randy, told him she loved him and, after ending the conversation, flopped back down on the bed, again covering her head, this time with a pillow.
I haven't been this sick since I was pregnant with Randy and I'm so embarrassed I could die!
When Dean pulled in the drive at Maid Marian Lane, Randy was walking a bike into the open garage.
Cynthia put her arm around Randy as she spoke to Dean.
Randy didn't seem to mind, but Dean felt more like a kindly old uncle than someone who, the prior evening, had undressed this woman and put her to bed.
Cynthia and Randy discovered the break-in when they returned from church shortly after lunch.
I'm thankful she and Randy didn't come home in the middle of it.
Randy and Cynthia Byrne were in the front row seated next to a white-haired lady Dean assumed was Cynthia's mother.
She added, as if to clarify the situation, that her son Randy would be there too.
Randy's young girlfriend, Jenny, a bright and quiet little thing, arrived just after Dean and the four chatted easily before dinner.
Randy raised his eyebrows.
Randy and Jen know about the first, but the other is a surprise to everyone!
Randy just smiled in a way that said he understood.
Randy, a science buff, was in the top third of the graduates and was also his class president.
Shortly after nine, Randy rose to take Jen home.
Randy suggested as he was leaving.
"Jeff and I used to bike a lot when Randy was just an infant," she reminisced, as she rested in the shade of a giant maple.
I had a little seat on the back for Randy and he loved it.
Randy has been so good about it—so encouraging, but even so—I feel like it's a sin to smile, or laugh.
He felt a momentary tightness until he recognized Randy Byrne behind the wheel.
"I hope so," Randy answered.
Finally Randy changed the subject.
Randy had a hint of hesitation in his voice.
Randy looked down at his empty plate.
Randy thought a moment.
Dean started to answer but Randy continued.
Dean spoke firmly and looked Randy right in the eye.
"No, it's not that," Randy said quickly, "It's just she'd be disappointed, real disappointed if you were playing her for a sucker.
The old man's face broke into a smile at the sight of Randy, and he shook the boy's hand.
Where was Randy in this fairy tale?
And Randy being somehow involved was ludicrous.
According to the Sentinel, Parkside had won the divisional baseball title, thanks heavily to Randy, so she should be home from State College.
Randy Byrne answered the phone and seemed surprised to hear Dean's voice.
Randy hesitated, as if not sure how candid he should be.
Randy seemed relieved to be having company.
And leave Randy to fend for himself?
The concerned look on Randy Byrne's face told Dean that Cynthia's action, while not of itself so unusual, was totally out of character for the boy's mother.
Randy hadn't checked but jogged up the stairs two at a time motioning for Dean to follow to his mother's bedroom.
He reluctantly pawed through the clutter on her bureau and the personal items in her bureau drawers, urged by Randy, who hoped the letter might have been left behind.
The morning dragged into lunchtime and Dean remained at Randy's urging, in hopes that Cynthia would telephone.
He and Randy shared the remains of nearly a dozen stale doughnuts after knocking off a quart of milk and a cheese sandwich each.
The phone rang twice and Randy tripped as he dashed across the room to answer.
Randy cut the call short, telling the young lady his mother hadn't returned and he was awaiting her call.
As soon as Dean heard the name, he took the phone from Randy.
Dean caught Randy smiling as he turned from the phone but pretended not to notice.
I guess he was thinking about biking again, Randy commented.
Randy caught it before the second ring.
Randy shouted as soon as he heard the voice on the other end.
More silence from Randy's end and then, Mr. Dean's here.
I didn't mean to butt in and run over here but Randy was worried and....
Cynthia Byrne asked to talk to Randy again and Dean returned to the living room, his head in a whirl.
He slumped down on the sofa in disgust, waiting for Randy to finish the conversation, his foot kicking open the bicycle magazine.
Wheels of understanding began turning but before he could collect his thoughts, Randy returned to the room.
Randy just nodded and Dean felt helpless to add something more appropriate.
"What can I tell Randy?" she continued.
On Sunday, June 6, Randy Byrne graduated from high school.
Randy had called a few days before with an invitation but Dean was putting in a Sunday shift and was forced to decline.
Then Randy told me about the bike magazine and how you'd been interested in it—how Jeff marked the information on this tour.
I truly thought he'd skipped out on Randy and me and taken that money.
I believe he went by three names, like those serial killer; John Wayne Gacy, Randy Stephen Kraft and guys like that.
After they dragged Jen off to confession, the Calvias would stick around and rent the church for the weddingâ€”if Randy was still alive.
My motherâ€”Randy's grandmotherâ€”god, she'll have a fit!
It appeared randy Randy remained alive, his presence required as a bridegroom as soon as details could be arranged.
It was just a silly gameâ€” unless of course, you'd played it like Randy Byrne.
While Cynthia was proud of her son Randy's athletic achievements, she always saw those abilities as a means to an endâ€”not an end in itself.
Therefore, he dreaded Cynthia seeking his complicity in opposing Randy's march to glory.
Randy is a sharp kidâ€”manâ€”with a bushel full of talent and the brains to go with it.
Randy got moneyâ€”lots of itâ€”just for signing a contract.
When Randy heard the name, he said he'd seen a production performed at college and how hilarious it was when they find the skeleton.
All I could think of was Randy and how lucky we are that he's got his act together in spite of this business with Jenâ€”how much better off he is than Billyâ€” and Jen than Melissa.
Besides, I'd heard the story in general from my mother all my lifeâ€”not about Paul's involvement, but Josh the randy miner and teenage Edith.
Randy was so goodâ€”so brave about it.
Little things keep popping into mindâ€”like Jeff won't be here for Randy's graduation, or he'll miss a neighbor's surprise party, or we'll never get to the Top of the Mark.
It was a Tuesday so I was at class and Randy at baseball practiceâ€”otherwise we remembered nothing.
Randy was holding up well and it looked as if he would nail down at least a partial scholarship shortly, perhaps to Lehigh or Bucknell, as both were interested.
Now that Jeffrey Byrne was still among the missing, Leland Anderson promised to send someone to the Byrne residence to let Randy know the body in Norfolk was not his father.
Randy would not be around much longer and she didn't want the sole burden and responsibility of upkeep.
Announcement number oneâ€”Randy has been accepted at Bucknell!
Randy has been so good about itâ€”so encouraging, but even soâ€”I feel like it's a sin to smile, or laugh.
He slumped down on the sofa in disgust, waiting for Randy to finish the conversation, his foot kicking open the bicycle magazine.
He had telephoned Randy the following day, asking the boy to inform his mother of Arthur Atherton's death.
Then Randy told me about the bike magazine and how you'd been interested in itâ€”how Jeff marked the information on this tour.
aimless conversation later, Randy announced, Right.
