AN: Thanks for the reviews. Keep in mind I started this fic before the end of season 2, so it doesn't follow the actually story line of the series. Anyways here's the next part.

Joey had brought Craig home and made sure he was fast asleep before leaving again. Then he made his way to the jailhouse. He noticed that he took him half the time it should have. He was so angry that he sped the whole way there. Of course speeding in front of a police station was not the brightest of things, but right now he didn't care. His first order of business was to talk to Manning.

Now, he stood in front of the mans cell. His hair was a mess, he was sweating and gripping the bars as if they were his life line. Anger contorted on his face as he stared at Joey.

"You ruined my life you bastard!" He yelled. "You stole my wife and now you've taken my son!"

Joey just shook his head. "You don't get it do you?"

"Get what?" Manning asked. "Get that you couldn't stand my happiness so you stole it from me!"

Joey laughed half heartedly. "You really think that's what happened? That I 'stole' your family from you?"

Manning just glared at him.

Joey took a step towards him. "Your wife left you because you beat her!" He seethed. "She was so terrified of you taking Craig away from her permantently that she never told anyone, not even me!"

"What would you know about it?"

"You drove your son away," Joey continued. "Because you beat him so badly that he went to school with half of his body covered in purple bruises! You're sick Manning. You need help!"

"No, what I need is for you to stop turning my son against me," He barked. "My son needs ME! "I'm his father!"

Joey took another step closer so that the only thing that separated their faces touching was the bars between them.

"If you try to hurt him again, you'll have me to deal with," He whispered. "Craig doesn't need you. It sounds like you need him."

With that said Joey turned and started walking away.

"You have no idea what you're talking about Jeremiah! Craig needs me!" He banged his hand on the bars. "I'm his father, do you hear me!"

Joey didn't bother turning around. Manning wasn't worth the breath that would be wasted on words he wouldn't hear. Craig needed him right now. Craig was what was important.

AN: Tell me what you think. Reviews, I need reviews lol j/k
