“This is home now.”
Stepping out of the truck you had grown so well to know, you closed the passenger door up and came round the side to meet with the driver on the pavement. Your eyes met with theirs as you turned to look up at them.
Looking back at you, Fp turned to look at you with a nervous look, the most nervous you had ever seen him look before. But all you could do was flash them a small smile, trying to reassure them and also yourself that it would be ok.
“I don’t know about this..” Fp trailed off unsure.
Quickly grabbing hold of his hand, you squeezed it lightly, “Listen to me, if we do this and get it over with, then we never have to do this again.”
“But it’s your Dad, (y/n). He’s my boss. I can’t go in there and admit I’m dating his daughter.” He expressed his concerns over this situation.
Whilst what Fp was saying was true, you knew you had to stick with the plan and just be honest with your family.
Fp was your Dad’s former friend and also his current boss. A long time ago they had been best friends and shared the same business together. But after some issues, Fp had to quit.
It had been years since Fp had been close with anyone out of the Andrews family after what happened and he never expected that when he did get back in touch with them, it would be you he would be so close to.
But it just happened. A little over 5 months ago the two of you came together and ended up actually dating. It was odd at first to imagine that two people from completely different worlds were together. But it seemed to work.
There was just the father issue they had to overcome, as well as the non-judgement regarding their age gap difference.
You were just out of college and were no longer a baby like your father seemed to still view you. You weren’t a minor anymore and you were mature for your age. You were out of school and currently working for your Dad on the accounts side of things.
Everything was going well for you and with Fp Jones in the equation it just made everything so much better. There were a slight hiccup with some things that came with being Fp’s girl, but you had grown to accept and be ok with them.
You just needed to now be honest with your father and hope he would also be on board with the idea, well at least accept it and come round to it eventually.
“I know it sounds messed up, but we can about each other,” She reminded him in a softer tone, “if we don’t do this now, then we’ll never do it.”
It was time to be honest. It was time to stop making it such a big secret.
“He won’t take it well you know.” Fp pointed out.
“Maybe not, but as long as I still have you, then that’s all that matters.” You told him with a warm smile.
Not being able to fight off the smile that was also growing on his lips after seeing the one fall on yours, he lightly smiled back at you and leant forward, where he pecked the side of your head lightly.
He appreciated you so much. You had helped him get his job back working with Fred and had been so good with trying to keep him sober and off the booze. Fp had never imagined to fall in love with you, but he was and he couldn’t get enough.
You had wanted to stop with all the lies and secrecy, to come forward to Fred and be honest with the world. Fp had tried to talk you out of it a few too many times, but had come round to it when you assured him that you both could handle it.
Squeezing his hand once more in assurance, the two of you slowly made your way up the drive and towards the front porch of your home. The nerves were bouncing round your body with every step you took, whilst Fp tried his best to hide his and act as natural as he could.
But right now he was scared.
Slowly letting go of each other’s hands, you grabbed hold of the front door and opened it up, the smell of food cooking inside your home hit you instantly, and comforted the unease in your stomach.
Upon hearing the door open, Fred and Archie from inside the kitchen, turned this heads to see you come inside your family home. They flashed you a friendly smile to see you back just in time for dinner, but it soon changed to one of a surprise when they saw Fp coming inside behind you.
“Hey, (y/n).” Fred called from the kitchen, as he continued to stir some past in a pan.
“Hey, Dad,” You responded, coming through into where they were preparing dinner, whilst Fp trailed behind, “Archie.” You looked over at your little brother.
“(y/n),” Archie greeted you back, before looking behind at Fp, “Mr Jones.”
“Fp, how’s it going?” Fred asked the man.
You began to slip out your jacket and laid your bag down onto the breakfast stool, As Pf answered, “Not too bad, Fred. Not too bad.”
“Fp’s come to stay for dinner.” You announced to your Dad and brother.
Archie and Fred look at each other a little taken aback, but nodded anyway, “Jughead is over at Betty’s if you were hoping to see him..” Fred informed him.
“Uh, no. I’m not actually here for Jughead.” Fp admitted in a dry tone.
The nerves were getting the better of him, but with every side glance you kept giving him, it was easing him slightly. You were nervous as hell right now, but had bags of confidence to finally be able to let everything just be.
“Oh..” Fred was now growing more confused, not that he didn’t mind Fp coming over, it was just a little weird for him to just suddenly show up, “is it something we can help you with? Is it to do with work?”
“No, actually, it’s um…” He began to slowly trail off nervously, before he felt your hand slowly slip inside his own.
Fred stopped stirring the pasta once he saw your hand come into contact with Fp’s, as Archie slowly laid down the bowls he had got out for dinner on the table, in confusion also.
“..We’re dating, Dad,” You finally confessed to him in a nervous yet happy tone, as you looked back at your father, “Fp and I are together.”
“You’re kidding right?” Archie responded whilst Fred just remained quiet.
“No actually we’re not.” You frowned back at your brother in disbelief.
You knew they would be shocked and probably a little hurt by it, but you hadn’t imagined Archie, your little brother of all people to be so unsupportive so soon.
“Seriously..” Archie scoffed, almost horrified at this idea, before he nudged your still silent father, who was sending daggers across as Fp, “Dad..”
“Oh c'mon, Archie,” You tried to get through to your brother, because out of the two of them, you thought he would be the most understanding, but clearly not, “you’re the one who was sleeping with your teacher. At least I’m not a minor and been out of school way before I got involved with an older guy.”
You weren’t going to let Archie walk over you. Fp and you were the most important thing right now. You didn’t care if you didn’t get their approval. As long as you still had Fp.
“Yeah, but not Jughead’s Dad, (y/n),” Archie pointed out just whom Fp was to all of them, he was Archie’s best friend’s father, it did sound messed up, but it was good for them, “it’s just…weird…”
“It’s not weird to us,” You defended yourself, before looking at Fp who had also been too quiet since the announcement, “right?”
“Right.” Fp answered simply, looking back at Fred uneasily.
“Dad, you can’t be ok with this, can you?” Archie looked back at his father again.
“Please, Dad,” You looked at your Dad with pleading eyes, “see it from my point of view. I love him…”
“Did you hit on her?” Fred finally broke his silence with an interrogating question.
“What..” Fp frowned back at him.
It had never been like that. Fp had never used her for sex. Nor had she he.
“Did you sleep with my daughter?” Fred asked again angrily.
“Dad!” You exclaimed in embarrassment at what he was implying.
“Did it make you feel better, help you get over your wife by hooking up with my daughter?” Fred questioned angrily.
“Dad! Stop it!” You ordered at him.
This wasn’t fair.
“C'mon, Fred,” Fp tried to make the man calm down and see sense, it had never been like that, “it wasn’t like that at all..”
“Wasn’t it?” Fred snapped back at him, as you looked back at your father in disgust, “Im sure you couldn’t wait till she was 18 and left school, so you could just worm your way back in.”
“Dad,stop it!” You yelled at him again.
“You think this has been going on for two whole years? No way!” Fp shook his head in disbelief, his own anger getting the better of him now.
He was not going to be made out to be something he wasn’t. That wasn’t fair on him or you.
“You know you were my friend…” Fred began, but you quickly cut him off.
“And he still can be, if you just stop with this crap and just listen to us!” You retorted.
“Oh, no, no,” Fred finally turned to look back at you, shaking his head as he did, “this is not continuing under my roof.”
“Dad, seriously..” You grumbled.
“No,” He shook his head, then looked back onto Fp with annoyance, “if you’d like to make this situation better, Fp, then I suggest you go.”
Fp slowly turned his head to look back at you sadly, before looking back onto Fred and slowly nodded his head in acceptance. He wasn’t going to let himself come in the way of you having your family. Fp had lost his and he wouldn’t let himself ruin another one because of your relationship.
He was a good man and wouldn’t let the same mistake happen again.
You deserved more than that.
Fp went to turn around on his heel and head out, when you quickly grabbed him and tried to stop him, ignoring the protests from your Dad to stop making this worse for the two of you.
“Fp, please, no,” You felt the tears rush to your eyes as you tried to hold Fp back, who even now couldn’t look at you, because if he did he would just take you home right there and then, but he couldn’t do that to Fred anymore, “don’t go. We can fix this..”
Taking a deep breathe, Fp brushed past you and continued his way to the door, as you spun round hopeless to look at your father in anger, “Why do this?” You yelled at your Dad hurt, “Can’t you see the reason why I am so happy? It’s because of Fp!”
“Go to your room, (y/n).” Fred ordered, as the door to your home closed and Fp left the premises.
“You can’t do this!” You shook your head back at him, as Fred tried to continue to go back to making your dinner, “I’m not a little girl anymore.”
“Well stop acting like one!” Your Dad called back.
“Are you kidding me?” You couldn’t believe this had gone so badly, it was the worst thing that could have happened, and you were hurting so bad, you wanted your Dad to hurt just as much, so he could feel your pain, “Just because your marriage broke down and you can’t be with the woman you really love, doesn’t mean that I can’t be with the one I love.”
Wanting to waste no more time in this non-accepting house, you quickly grabbed your bag and jacket, before going to storm out of the front door, Fp had just left out of moments before.
“Where are you going?” Fred asked you.
“Home,” You yelled back to him, “I’m going back home.”
Getting into your car, you quickly started up the engine and made a dash out of your drive, heading to the one place you had called home for the past few months. The tears threatened to spill from your eyes for the second time that night, but you refused to cry right now.
You knew your Dad was being unfair, but you couldn’t also shake off the feeling like he had every right to react the way he did. Yes, it was so unlikely and not the norm for two people with such a big age gap to be together.
But if you were happy, surely your Dad and Archie could be too.
When you pulled up outside the familiar trailer situated in the trailer park a little while later, Fp was then hopping out of his own truck and heading towards the door of his trailer to go inside.
“Fp,” You called to him, trying to grab his attention as you jumped out of your car, “wait up..”
Turning back round at the sound of a car and also your voice now, he looked over at you a little taken back to see you had followed him, “(y/n), what’s going on?”
“I wasn’t going to let you walk away, Fp.” You told him sternly, as you came to meet him up the metal steps in front of his trailer door.
“I can’t have your family angry at you because of me, (y/n),” Fp tried to explain to you in a sad tone, “it’s not fair.”
“And it’s not fair that they won’t accept us. I’m tired of not being honest, I’m tired of not being able to be with the man I love.” You expressed.
“Then what are you going to do?” He asked you.
“I’m staying here. I’m staying here with you,” You informed him strongly, as you took your hand into his own, “this is my home now.”
