After icecream with Elliot I made it home. I walked in the house with my bag slung over my shoulder. My dad was sitting at the dining table looking through some car magazine, my mom was making dinner, she was cutting up some chicken.
"Hey mom?" I asked setting my hands down on the counter looking down.
"Yes?" she chimed.
"Can I uhh….have a….friend over for dinner one of these nights?" I asked.
She looked up.
"A friend?" she smiled.
"Well…..." I said.
She raised her brow.
"Boy…friend" I said.
"WHAT?" I heard my dad drop his magazine.
"OF COURSE SWEETIE!" my mom smiled.
"WHOA WHOA WHOA? HELLO? BOYFRIEND?" my dad got up from the table.
"Yeah dad BOYFRIEND" I said.
He eyed me.
"Is it that Elliot boy?" my dad questioned.
I nodded my head. My dad crossed his arms.
"Good, now I get to sit down and talk with him" he said.
"DAD" I said.
"Oh Harper don't worry I'll keep your dad in check" my mom said.
I smiled and left the kitchen. I set my stuff in my room. When I was ready to leave my room my dad was standing in the doorway.
"Hey dad" I said.
"We need to talk Harper" My dad crossed his arms.
I sighed "Ok"
I sat on my bed and my dad sat next to me. It was silent for a moment, my dad sighed.
"Harper…I just want you to be…..aware of some things" my dad said.
"EW DAD, are you really having this talk? I've had it before!" I interjected.
"But that was with your mother" my dad said.
"Dad! It's not like Elliot and I are serious now, we've been dating like two days" I said.
"But I assume you're going to end up doing it with someone someday, all I want is to give you advice NOW because it's that age where young people like you get interested in that stuff" my dad said.
"Please for the love of god be safe about it, don't be stupid" he said.
I nodded my head.
"and….it's different for you than it is for most boys, most boys just want it regardless of their relationship at this age" he said.
"Elliot's different" I said
"I just want you to be sure of that though Harper, be very sure….or he could walk all over your heart like most teenaged boys do" he said.
Short chapter...sorry but I kinda wanted a separate moment with Harper and her Dad
