“And where do you think you were all night long?” Harry stands in the kitchen, a glass of water sitting in front of him as he stares a stare that could burn a hole through his daughter. His hair is disheveled from waking up in the middle of his sleep, and just when he’d walked downstairs to get some water - assuming all three of his children were asleep - he spotted his 16 year old daughter tiptoeing in through the front door of their large house.
Rose flinches, eyes shutting as she wishes to poof her way out of the situation. She knew she would be grounded for the rest of the week. Harry didn’t have much trust in her, and wouldn’t believe that she was just trying to stay out of her home at her friend Ellie’s house, but it was true. She wasn’t doing drugs, drinking, having sex, or anything that he probably thought she was doing.
“I’ll just go ground myself for the rest of the week.” She simply says. Harry nods momentarily, agreeing with her punishment, but he doesn’t like that she doesn’t seem affected by it at all. So before she can reach the large marble staircase, he changes the circumstances to her punishment.
“Rest of the month, Rose. You’ve got to know what you’ve done.” Y/N’s fists ball at her sides, and she tries not to show her anger boiling up in her chest. She knew that if Ethan - her brother who was just a year older than her - had been the one showing up late, he would’ve been met with a disappointed conversation and no real circumstance.
“Dad, don’t you think that’s a little too far?” She questions, Green eyes locking onto his own as they stare at each other across the living room. He shakes his head, he loved his daughter, but he needed her to know that sneaking out and doing lord knows what wasn’t an appropriate behavior, especially when he was once her age and knew exactly what kids did at 16.
