Your daughter has a friend round, and they ask how you and Shawn met
I slaved in the kitchen, hair in a messy bun, sweat covering my face from the heat as I made my famous curry. Lily, our daughter, usually hated Indian food, however this wasn’t that. No, this was “Mummy’s Special Dinner”, definitely not chicken curry.
I jumped as two large arms wrapped around me, Shawns head resting on my shoulder as he peered down at my food. “Looks beautiful baby, as always.” I blushed and strained to kiss his cheek. “The girls are asking to do my make-up.”
I let out a laugh. “Think you’d look handsome with a little blush, maybe even fake eyelashes.” I giggled.
“Shut it, women.” He growled as he nipped my neck. I giggled and shrugged him off. “Ah, forgot, no sex with kids in the house.”
“You know the rules.” I giggled again.
Our fifteen year old came in with her friend, who blushed when she saw Shawn. She had a crush on him, bless her, and was always shy around him.
“Hi Sophie! How are you?”
She blushed even more. “Fine thank you.” She quietly said.
“So anyway, I bumped into him at this party and he was so cute! He kept telling me how hot I looked and-“
“Woah woah woah,” Shawn interrupted out daughter. “Who’s this?”
She rolled her eyes. “Some boy, don’t worry Dad.”
“I will worry, the first thing you say to a women shouldn’t be ‘you’re so sexy’, it should be charming.” He crossed his arms.
“And how would you know? Mums told me how awkward you used to be around girls.” Shawns head napped to me, and I simply shrugged.
“Can’t lie to my daughter, can I?” The girls giggled at me comment. I squeaked as Shawn suddenly pulled me into him, squeezing me tightly.
“You still married me though.” He smirked. I saw the girls swoon at our affection.
“That’s what I want.” Sophie blurted out, Shawn simply smiled at her before kissing my cheek. I turned around and leant against his chest. “How did you meet?”
“We were both flying to New York from London,” Shawn said. “And I saw her at security. Thought she was beautiful, never seen someone look at good as your mum in sweatpants and a hoodie.” I blushed.
“She ended up standing in front of me before check in, and I begged the lady to let me sit next to her. The attendant must of thought I was a stalker, but she did anyway. Me and your Mum talked for ten hours on that journey, and I fell in love.”
“You did not! It was only ten hours.” I scoffed.
“Did too! Loved you the minute I saw you.” He huffed. “I was only meant to be in New York a couple days, and I asked your Mum out to dinner that night and she said yes. We had dinner and went to see a movie, and did the same the night after.”
“Then your Dad asked me to go to Canada with him, said it would be great fun. But I didn’t have the money for that. New York was just a holiday, couldn’t afford to go anywhere else. But he paid for me, let me stay at him place. Charmed me good, and now we’re here!” I happily said.
Shawn hummed in agreement and kissed me shoulder. “That’s how it’s really some ladies, not some alcohol filled party while saying ‘you’re so fit’.”
The girls looked at us warmly. “You’re right Dad! I’m gonna tell Jake no, I don’t wanna date someone who doesn’t think I’m beautiful! Sexy isn’t enough for me.” The girls hopped down from the counter leaving Shawn and I alone.
“Dodge a fucking bullet there.” Shawn huffed, spinning me around and kissing my lips.
“Tell me about it.” I sighed. He kissed me again.
“Wanna break the ‘no sex’ rule.” He winked, I simply groaned and went back to my curry.
