‘It’s inhumane!’ she shouted.
‘Vile, evil! How dare you spring it on me like that!  Why must I toe your line and wait? In a few years I’ll be old enough to vote and do as I please. Why can’t I go?’
Tobias tried hard to suppress his smile.
It was a shame he had to take such a firm stance, she looked so cute standing there all riled up, but after quite a bit of soul searching, he and the wife tossed for it. He lost so had to be The Bad Guy and thought why was it always a race to grow up?
She was only fifteen and any hope she had of going to a disco held as much water as a sieve. He sighed.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Ah, the rush to achieve independence! Only to discover once you get there that responsibilities suck all the fun out of it!

    Good decision, but maybe mom and dad could have shown a united front and told her together. It makes me wonder if mom wants to try to stay “friends,” and let dad get blamed for all the rules.

    • Some parents can be like that. I usually got the short straw with the foster kids, though if they wanted a one on one, we had a key sentence and it was the same for everyone. I was always the bad guy with ex partner’s youngest as I wouldn’t give in to his whims and whines like everyone else did.
