When we finally made it back from our "date", Seth wanted to meet my father. I was a little anxious. My father, Derek, doesn't do well with new people. He gets all shy and then he wants to prove he is a man. Derek is so wierd.
"Just be careful." I said. He traced my cheekbone with his thumb.
"I'm sure it can't be that bad, Megan." He smiled warmly at me. I gave him a worried look. Seth took my hand and squeezed it.
I turned around to open the door. Seth squeezed my hand again as I opened the door. I walked inside to find Derek on the couch watching the My Little Pony show.
"Dad. I'm home." I said in a flat tone.
"Be nice." Seth whispered in my ear.
My dad looked up and saw that I had a guest. He jumped around trying to find the remote. When he finally found it, he quickly turned off the tv and smiled nervously.
"Hi, Meg. Who is this?" Derek walked slowly over to us.
"Dad, this is Seth. He is my boyfriend." Seth smirked at the last word that came from my mouth. He stuck out his hand, waiting for a hand-shake.
"Er... Hi, Seth, I'm Derek." He shook Seth's hand firmly. "Now you treat my daughter with respect! Got it?" He forced as much of his country accent as he could into that.
"Of corse, sir! Your daughter deserves to be treaten with respect." He sounded innocent. Derek had a thoughtful look on his face.
"Meg, I like 'im. You have passed the first test, but there will be more." Derek actually sounded serious. I groaned really loudly.
"Seth and I are going upstairs." I said as i pulled him up the stairs that lead to my bedroom.
