16. It gets better

KEEGAN'S POV

I walked back with their food. I handed the mom and daughter their food.

"Chicken Parmesan for you ma'am. And the kids chicken fingers for you sweetie."

I plopped the steak down in front of the father. Juice sprayed all over him. 

"Um miss, please come back here." he said in a demanding yet sarcastic tone.

"Is there something wrong sir?"

"Yes. I have steak juice all over my shirt, I demand to get this meal for free." He yelled and stood up.

"Oh I'm sorry about that sir. I can talk to my manager but I can't guarantee anything." I said.

"Listen," he said and looked at my name tag, "Keegan, you better stop having a sarcastic tone with me. I've got a wife and a daughter. I'm not clueless about girls." 

"Well I'll be right back," I said and walked away.

"Mommy I have to go to the bathroom." Mackenzie cried.

"JOANNE! TAKE THE STUPID KID TO THE BATHROOM SO I NEVER HAVE TO HEAR HER SAY THAT AGAIN!" The father yelled.

"Ok, lets go sweetie."

They walked to the bathroom and I followed.

"Joanne..?" I said. I could see tears streaming down her face.

"Oh I'm sorry honey for the way my husband is acting."

"You know it doesn't have to be like this. My dad was the exact same way."

"Was?" she asked.

"Yes. He's in prison now because he abused me and my mother. He threatened to kill us if we told anyone. I ended up telling my best friend when I was in about 8th grade. But don't wait like we did. Do something now." I say.

"We've tried. Every time the cops come over, he acts so sweet." She tells me.

"Put a secret video camera somewhere. Trust me. It'll work." I tell her.

"I'll do it."

*flush* Mackenzie opens the stall door, washes her hands and gives me a big hug.

"It'll get better," I whisper in her ear.

We walk out. I ask Sheila what I should do, and she says to just give it to them for free. 

I walk back to their table and tell them that it's free. They leave but the dad stays for a minute.

"I know what you told my wife Keegan. And I'm not too happy about it. I'd like to see you try to get me arrested."

"Oh yeah? Watch me."
