He looked annoyed and tired. I hoisted myself up onto the counter beside him, dangling my long legs over the edge.What happened?He looked up at me and sighed.The stupid thing stopped working this morning and apparently I dont have the good sense to leave things well enough alone. He stood up and stretched. Maybe Mark can take a look when he comes over tonight.Poker?Yeah. You know, since your moms out of town. You want me to order extra pizza for you?Nah. Alyssas picking me up in around eight. Well grab dinner before the party.Jeff frowned.Your mother said no parties.Aw, come on, I argued. Im twenty-one, and Im not having one, Im going to one.No, Michelle. Your mother was very clear on the subject. While youre in our house, youll respect our rules.This was ridiculous. Why did he have to pick today to start acting like a father? This mornings adventure floated across my mind and suddenly I knew exactly how I could get what I wanted. I leaned back onto my arms, tilted my chin down, and pouted.Daddy, please. My voice was low and quiet. The rest of his face was passive, but his eyes widened.Its Jeff, you know that. The answer is still no. He ran a hand roughly through his hair.I opened my legs and let him see my cotton panties underneath my skirt. I was going to have my way.Daddy, please. I drew out the last word and corrupted my voice with lust. Jeff licked his lips and took a step toward me. He swallowed, and stepped back again. After a long pause he cleared his throat.Fine. You can go. But dont do anything stupid and for heavens sake, dont tell your mother. Shed have both our hides. He turned on his heel and stalked out of the room.
