"No kiss Ronnie" I hissed.
"Why not?" Ronnie whined
"Do you listen to yourself sometimes? I just spent a day with her and your fussing over it. In fact, it was just during lunch" I am so irritated. We have been talking about the same thing for almost an hour now. How does she always find a way to change and exaggerate things?
"Sorry" she said. I looked back at her and she bit her bottom lip. She dropped her head and started playing with her fingers.
"Its fine" I sigh. She looks back at me with a weak smile. "You are a hand full but I still love you" I say giving her my goofiest smile.
She gave me a tight squeeze and whispered "I love you to Panny" I couldn't help but smile.
"Whose idea was it to watch a horror movie?" Mr Miller asked.
"It was mine" Ronnie's response was muffled due to the fact that she had a pillow covering her face. I tried to move the pillow away but she had a tight grip on it.
"So why did you decide to put a horror movie when you aren't going to watch it?"
"Well dad, there is nothing else to watch in this house. Maybe if you let me go out I could do something I can actually enjoy." Ronnie shot back.
" Ronnie" he sighed, "we've talked about this, you know you can't go out for a while. I know this is hard for you but it's for your own good."
"Hey" I said, "when the time is right I'll take you to all your favourite places, okay?" She looked at me and smiled then she hugged me tight and laid her head on my shoulder and closed her eyes
"Sometimes I feel like she likes you more than me" Mr Miller complained I just grinned widely.
The sun rays hit the side of my face. I groaned and tried to cover my face with my blankie but I couldn't feel it. Wait a minute, I'm completely uncovered! I opened one eye to survey my surrounding and was met with a quiet chuckle
"Dad? What are you doing here?" I whined
"I came to wake you up?" He said happily
"Why so early" I groaned "It's not like I have school anyway" I turned and faced the other way.
"Actually, you do-" I cut him off
I basically jumped of the bed and glared at him, "what did you say?"
"Whoa, you don't have to be that scary" he chuckled
"Don't mess with me man, you know what I'm capable of" I warned.
"You're capable of nothing. You can't even hurt a fly" he mocked me.
"Aghh" I sighed
"Nothing to say huh? Your old man is getting better at this comeback stuff" he smirked
"No dad, you're so bad I don't even want to waste another word on you" I said laughing. He put his hand over his heart as if he was hurt but the grin on his face said otherwise.
"Okay cupcake, get ready for school. You don't wanna be late." He said as he walked out of my room.
I was so ecstatic about the whole situation. I run to my bathroom and took a quick shower, brushed my teeth, combed my hair and picked my outfit. I quickly ran down stairs with my bag on my back only to find my dad talking to the doctor.
"Hey baby, all done?" My dad asked with a sad smile. He was scratching the back of his head so it meant something was wrong.
"I guess I'm not going to school" I mumbled. I felt so crushed and miserable. Turning to walk back up the stairs dad called.
"Don't put on that face cupcake. I'm so sorry" he genuinely looked sorry and I knew he felt really bad about me not going.
"It's okay dad. At least you tried" I gave him my best fake smile and walked back to my room. I walked in closed the door behind me. I threw my bag pack in the corner and dived on my bed. I was beginning to feel suffocated in this house and my only excuse to get out didn't want me.
I don't know how long I was lying there when I heard a soft knock at the door. I tried to ignore it but I knew I'd feel guilty afterwards.
"Come in" I said whilst being sandwiched between my blankets.
"Hey cupcake. I just came to check up on you" he said whilst sitting on the bed next to me. "I know you want to get out of here so bad. I know that but your health comes first to me. I love you so much but I can't let you go out without making sure you're okay." He was right. After all it's his job as a father to worry about me. So, I gave him a small smile to let him know I understand.
"I was talking to Andy a few minutes ago, he kept talking about this online class stuff. Does that make sense to you?"
"Dad, I thought you were up to date with these things" I laugh at his silliness.
"Are you up for it kiddo?" He asked.
"I'll think about it" I said smiling back to my caring dad. "Now, get out!" This totally caught him by surprise. "You've done what you needed to so there is no need to prolong this encounter" I said trying to suppress my laughter. He's face was priceless.
When he figured out I was messing with him my dad was so mad he kept a grudge. I laughed so hard watching him walk out the room saying he'll get me back for this. At least I had him to better my days.
