Surprises and Secrets

Meg has always lived an average life. She was an normal teenager. She had good grades. She cleaned up her room. She ate her vegetables. She had a normal family. Until one day, a stranger knocks on her door…


13. Epilogue

   Meg smiled and popped another fry into her mouth.  She was sitting next to Nick in a booth at Nancy's Diner and Brittany and her new boyfriend, Jackson, was with her.  Everything had worked out great.  She had her dad back and her amazing friends by her side.  She glanced up at Nick.  She loved the way his ocean blue eyes sparkled and made his smile all the brighter.  He flipped his sandy blonde hair and looked at her, with the look in his eyes that made her feel like she was the only one in the room.

   He's just so stinkin' cute! she thought to herself.

   Nick and Meg had been together for almost four months now and things were going great between them.  She was happy for Brit, too.  She had to admit that Jackson was good-looking, with his dark brown hair and chocolate eyes, but she wouldn't trade Nick for him any day of the week.   

   Well maybe... No! she chided herself, looking up at Nick, and smiling at his cute grin.  

   "Whatcha thinking?" Nick asked, looking back at Meg.

   "Um, that we should go to the movies!  I heard that a good one just came out," Meg quickly answered.  "And its perfect weather, with the rain and all."

   "Ok, sounds good to me.  What do you guys think?" Nick asked, turning to Brit and Jackson.  

   "Let's get out of this place!  The popcorn is calling!!" Jackson answered.  He jumped up and pulled Brit up with him.  She giggled and followed him.



   Three hours later Meg arrived home soaked to the bone, but glad to have had the opportuinty to get out of the house.  She creeped up the stairs, hoping not to alert her dad, but failing miserably.  Her strong father popped his head out of his study door and grinned at her surprise.

   "Did you guys have fun?" he asked her, righting himself and opening the door wider.  He motioned for Meg to step inside and take a seat.

   "Ya, it was great.  The movie was actually really good."

   "That's good.  So, Meg," her father said, sliding his fingers through his hair and easing himself into his tall chair, "I was just wondering - is everything still cool between us?"

   Meg laughed and hugged her dad across the desk and said, "Oh yeah, Dad.  I'm pretty sure it will always be."

   And closing the door silently behind her, she knew she was right.
