If you're here for my WeWriWa post, just scroll down. I posted that one earlier.
We're in Chapter 30 as Ellen's ex-husband-to-be, Doug spots their youngest daughter out on a date. Now as far as Doug is concerned, Melanie isn't allowed to date, and he's not above making a scene in a public place. Even his fiancee Chloe gets annoyed and tells him to knock it off. Chloe speaks first here.
“Stop this right now! You’re acting like a cave man.”
Finally aware of the spectacle he’d created, he released Melanie and lowered his own voice accordingly. “And just how am I supposed to act when I catch my daughter out on a date when she knows full well she’s not allowed to date until she’s sixteen?”
Humiliated beyond belief, Melanie didn’t even think of the potential problems her defense would cause when she said those four inflammatory words: “Mom said I could.”
That's my six. See you around the web as I make the rounds visiting the other Write Club authors.
