(Author's Note: Hope you enjoyed last episode! Enjoy!)

(Author's Note: Hope you enjoyed last episode! Enjoy!) I walked up to Brian's front door and took a slow, deep breath. "Here goes..." I said to myself and rang the doorbell. Five seconds later, the door swung open and Brian appeared. "Hey Penny!" Brian said, giving me a warm welcome hug. "Hi Brian." I said, not exactly matching his peppy tone. I was pretty nervous about meeting his parent for the first time. When we got in his house, I slipped my jacket off and hung it on the coat rack. Brian sat down on the couch. As I walked over to sit next to him, he explained to me that his dad wasn't home from work yet. "Not home from work yet, eh?" I winked at Brian and we both giggled. Brian put on a romantic comedy movie. I usually love those kind of movies, but this one was pretty sappy, and boring. I secretly wished me and Brian could have gone out to see that new movie with the hot vampire. Sigh. The movie got so boring, we decided to make best of the private time we had. So much for that, which lasted less than thirty seconds. I heard a car pull up near the house and out the window I saw a dark figure get out of it and slam the door. "Oh my gosh, your dad's home!" I said, throwing Brian back on the couch. We moved away from each other and Brian turned the T.V. back on. When Brian's dad walked through the door, we were staring at the T.V. like innocent children. I decided to get up to greet his dad. "Hi, Mr..." My voice trailed off. I knew Brian's last name, but when I caught sight of the man standing there, I just couldn't talk! "Mr. Brown..." he finished for me, and chuckled. "Gee, you'd think your date would know you by now, huh Brian?" I know he was joking, but for some it just sounded really rude. My face burned and I slapped my forehead with my hand. I knew what his name was! Err, how could mom find HIM attractive?? Yes, that's right...Brian's dad's stupid boyfriend! The one that's making her cheat on dad! I could not believe this; did he know that I was the daughter of his "girlfriend?" "Alrighty then," he said, "Well, I better go make you kids some grub." Grub? Kids? Seriously, did this guy think we were five?

Back on the couch, I whispered to Brian. "Can I talk to you? Now?" I asked. "Uh, sure." He replied.
Up in Brian's room, I first noticed his dorky posters. I laughed, but in a good way. "Nice posters." I told him playfully. "Ha, ha." He said back sarcastically. I turned and changed the mood faster than the speed of light. "Brian, we came up here to talk, and we need to talk." I told him, than realized how stupid that sounded. He sat on his window seat and I took one next to him. "So...what's up?" He asked me nervously. "Well, listen, I've been wanting to tell you something. I'm just not sure how you'll take it. It's about your-" But I was cut off. "TIME FOR DINNER!" a voice shouted from downstairs. I told Brian I wasn't very hungry (who would be after you found out your boyfriend's dad was cheating with your mom?) I couldn't even look at the guy. Ick. "See, Brian, I knew a pretty girl would snatch you up!" He exclaimed. "Dad!" Brian turned bright red, and I wanted to punch his stupid dad. "Speaking of pretty girls, I just asked her to be my fiance!" He exclaimed to Brian. OMG. She, as in, my MOM??!! I practically stopped breathing. I stood up and shoved my chair in the table. I snatched my jacket and flung open the door, instantly getting smacked with the freezing air. I heard Brian's chair scrape and seconds later he was at the door. "Pe-Penny, what, what is going on?" He stuttered, breathing hard. "Brian, I'm so sorry, I just can't do this..." I whispered. Brian looked down. "Penny, are you going to-" he swallowed. "Bre-break up with me?" he asked sheepishly. I shook my head, but then said, "Well, I don't know. I'm just not sure how this is going to affect our relationship." I started towards the gate when Brian stopped me. "Wait, what will affect our relationship? I mean, I just, what did I do-can't we, can't we talk about this first?" His voice cracked like he was about to cry. But it was too late for me. I was already feeling tears brimming over my eyes. It was unbearable to see Brian like this, but I just really couldn't explain anything right now. I HAD to get home. I looked back him. "No. Just not now, ok? Please." I told him. With that, I flung open the gate and started off for home. I looked back at Brian as I ran past the side of his house. I saw that he had his head in his hands, and he was crying. I felt awful, but I needed to talk some sense into mom before it was too late. I got home to find mom walking towards the couch to go watch some T.V. How could she act so- normal? A strange man she's never told me about asked her to become engaged? "Mom, I have to tell you something!" "What?" She asked innocently. Dad wasn't home (away on a business trip) and so I felt it was okay to yell. And frankly, I wouldn't have cared if dad was home. I was tired of being so quiet. I yelled at the top of my lungs, "I KNOW YOU'RE CHEATING ON DAD, OKAY?"

"I secretly wished me and Brian could have gone out to see that new movie with the hot vampire."
i think it should have been, "I secretly wished me and Brian could have gone out to see that new movie with the hot wizard." that's just me, though xD other than that, this story is really addicting (:

On page 16 the handcuffs made me laugh so hard. Brian must be pissing Penny off with that conversation..

Nice story line! I can't wait until I finish the series. \:rah\:
