There we were....Liam and me walking in the streets, going to the restaurant where my we are going to meet my parents...
"I just want to say...thank you" I said
"You know there is no way to say no to Betsy..."
"Yes I know but thanks anyway it means a lot to me.."
"So I want to make a deal..."
"What?" "I am going with you in this dinner and tomorrow you go run with me in the central park!"
"At 7 am?"
I took a breath "Ok..."
"You said ok? Without screaming at me?" he said joking
"Yes "I said "I don't feel like screaming at you now..."
He laughed and this made me smile
We got at the restaurant and my parents were already sat in a table waiting for us.
“Hi mom, hi dad” I said giving them a hug” This is Liam, he is….my…friend…”
“Hello Mr. and Mrs. Adams it’s my pleasure to meet you” Liam said
We all sat on the table and order the food.
“So Liam are you from Ney Work?”My mom asked “Yes I am…”
“Oh that’s nice, you know I was so worried when Skye move to NY because she didn’t know the city and when she was a child she always got lost..like once she got lost in the shopping mall’s bathroom …”
“Really?”Liam asked laughing
“Yeah really…but just because there were many mirrors and it was so confusing…I couldn’t find the exit door…”I said defending myself
“But I am happy she moved to NY..now she has a great job and I am so proud of her…”my mom said
I felt like my throat began to dry….and she just kept talking about how amazing my job was and how she was proud of me…
“MOM! Stop it!”I said
“Stop talking about it…I’ve …got…’I’ve got fired…”I said
“Why?!”my parents asked together
“I don’t know…”I lied
“So you are looking for a job right?”my dad asked
“Yes I am ,but it’s not easy…”I said
“If you don’t get a job you can’t stay here in NY…”my dad said
“No! I will find a job I just need some time…”
“You need money to stay here! And no job means no money! How are you going pay the rent?”
“Well..you don’t need to worry about that…”I said
“Why?”my mom asked
“Because I am living with Liam…”
“Oh my Gosh! Why haven’t you tell us that you are dating Liam?”my mom asked
“What ?No I am not….”
“Oh please you don’t want me to believe that my daughter is living with a guy that is not her boyfriend, right?”My mom said
I didn’t know what to say. I was speechless
“Well in fact she was going to say that she was not ready to tell you about our relationship…”Liam said” She was nervous about what you two would think about me…you have a daughter who cares a lot about your opinion…”
“Aww ”my mom said ”Of course we like Liam! We are happy that you are happy!”
“So Liam….what you do?”my father asked
“I am photographer…I work for Us today….”
“Oh that is really nice…you know I’ve always loved photograph...” my mom start talking
The rest of dinner was really nice. I was happy that Liam was there for me.
