“It was so lovely to meet you, (Y/N). I’m just so happy that Eggsy has you in his life now, especially after he turned it all around.” Eggsy’s mum Michelle gushed as she smiled widely.
I smiled back.“Thank you. That means so much to me. I couldn’t imagine not being with him.”
Eggsy emerged from the bathroom, pretending like he hadn’t been listening.“Ready to go, luv?”
I nodded, mentally rolling my eyes. I had been so nervous about this whole thing, meeting the parents was always a big step in any relationship. Michelle hugged me tightly, not forgetting to squeeze me a little. As she said goodbye to her son, I bent down to Daisy who was happily playing with her toys in the floor. Tickling her tummy, I laughed as she giggled, softly waving goodbye; this was undoubtedly the cutest toddler in the world.
Eggsy and I were silent for a while as he drove away. I relished at the words his mum had said to me. I had the seal of approval now, she liked me!
“Your family is lovely, Eggsy.” I spoke up.
He looked at me briefly before turning back to the road.“There’s this overwhelming feeling in me, I think I’m just really happy.”
“Aw, that’s so sweet.” I teased, pinching his cheek.
“So um, I was just wondering…uh, when can I meet yours?”
His question caught me off guard. I had tried to forget about him meeting my parents. Not that I was ashamed of Eggsy, not at all! How could I be? He was everything I had ever dreamed about in a man. It wasn’t Eggsy that was the problem, it was my parents, they were not going to go easy on him.
“Eggsy, my mum and dad….they’re not as welcoming as your mum.” I started, choosing my words carefully.
I saw his smile fall.“W-what do you mean?”
“I really want you to meet them, trust me, but they always envisioned me with someone who had gone to an amazing school, have a rich background…you know where I’m from, what it’s like.”
“Th-they still might like me.” He had suddenly gone quieter.
“Eggsy, they have to because I love you. If they don’t, I couldn’t give a fuck. You saved the world, they have no choice.”
Eggsy had got up at the crack of dawn to start getting ready. Laying in our bed, I watched as he scurried around the room, making sure everything was in order. He had done his hair, washed his face, brushed his teeth, do his hair again before staring into his wardrobe for fifteen minutes. You could feel the tension building up. His posture was tense too.
Letting out a big sigh, I threw the covers off me, slumping out of bed. Wrapping my arms around him, I almost thought he wasn’t breathing by how still he was. Eggsy put his hands on mine, taking a deep breath.
“What do I wear? I can’t rock up to your house looking bad.”
“Just something smart-ish, like smart casual.” I replied.
“Will that be ok? That won’t be too underdressed?”
“You’re meeting my parents, not the queen. Come on, I’m going for a shower, and I think you also need a shower to relax.” I pulled on his arm, smirking.
“But I just got my hair perfect.” he whined.
“Alright. But if you change your mind, you know where I’ll be.”
I decided to drive there, knowing Eggsy was still nervous. Along the way, I kept complimenting how he looked, that he would be fine. Nothing seemed to be working. Based on looks my parents would like him, because of Kingsman he was dressed like a man who had good fortune. But as soon as he opened his mouth, they would understand what sort of person he was. Someone they didn’t want to be associated with.
“You ready?” I joked, trying one more time to lift his spirits.
“You make it sound like a mission.”
“It kind of is.”
Walking hand in hand, we approached my childhood home. Eggsy stared in wonder, we did have a large estate. The home had been brought down through the generations. Ringing the doorbell, I gave him one last kiss of good luck before the door opened. A butler answered it, he was new, though that didn’t stop me from walking in.
“Miss (Y/L/N), welcome home.” he greeted, taking our coats.
“(Y/N)! Sweetheart, it’s so good to see you again.” my mum exclaimed as she opened her arms to me.
“Hi mum.” I hugge her.
My dad walked through next, not having any choice but to greet Eggsy as I was occupied.
“Hello sir, pleasure to meet you.” Eggsy said, holding a hand out.
My father shook it.“You too Eggsy, it’s been too long.”
Oh god, I could already feel the judgment radiating off him. Mum was next to greet him and she gave the same look. To anyone else, it would not seem like anything, but to those who knew her, that look only meant that she wasn’t happy with what she saw.
They invited us through to the living room, tea and biscuits already on the coffee table. We sat opposite them, I poured out everyone’s drink as I waited for someone to say something.
“Your home is amazing, Mr and Mrs (Y/L/N).” Eggsy gestured around him.
“Thank you, Eggsy.” she sipped at her tea.“(Y/N) tells us you met at Kingsman through recruitment. What part of London did you come from?”
Straight to the point, as usual.
“Um..” Eggsy stuttered, surprised by her forwardness,“I used to live in the East End.”
“The East End? Really?” my dad raised an eyebrow.
“M-my father was in Kingsman, an old friend of his offered me a place there.”
My family had also been a part of Kingsman. Dad was originally an agent, only stopping when he got a nasty injury and to take care of the family estate. Many uncles, aunties and cousins were in the same kind of business, so they knew a lot about it. However, they did not know all the people Eggsy had saved.
“That’s a very strange miracle. They normally only take people on from Universitys such as Oxford or Cambridge. Where did you go to study?” dad asked.
Good lord, did these people have no respect?
“Neither sir. I joined the marines after secondary school.”
My parents glanced at each other, not hiding it from my boyfriend. Squeezing into Eggsy’s hand, I tried to send him a reassuring smile. He managed a small smile, though I could tell that this has effected his confidence.
“Eggsy, would you mind if I just spoke with my parents for a moment?” I suddenly asked, shocked by my own words.
He tried to not jump out of his seat.“Of course luv.”
The door shut quickly as he almost sprinted out of the room. I shot my parents an angry glare, but they were also stubborn people. I really didn’t want to argue with them. These were my parents, I loved them, they had raised a very happy child but this child was not happy right now.
“What do you think you’re doing? How dare you speak to my boyfriend like that.” I kept my voice low.
“(Y/N), he is not a good match for you. You’ve had your fun, but it’s time to move into the real world.” mum sighed.
“I love that man. Who cares where he came from? It’s who he is as a person that drew me to him.”
“How on earth did he get into Kingsman anyway? Seems like they’re accepting just anybody nowadays.” dad huffed.
“Eggsy is not just anybody. That is the man who saved everyone from world domination and genocide that could have occured. Not only that, he is the man who has saved me countless times, the man I love, the man I want to be with for the rest of my life!” I could feel the anger rising but kept calm.“Eggsy would do anything for me and I for him.”
“(Y/N), are you really sure about this?” mum came and sat next to me, holding my hand.
“Yes mum.” I smiled.“I don’t think I’ve ever been so sure of anything in all of my life.”
We all thought it best that Eggsy and I leave now, come back some other time so that they could start fresh. Luckily, my boyfriend went along with this. Saying goodbye to my parents, I watched them like a hawk as they walked up to Eggsy.
“Eggsy, I’m sorry if I offended you earlier.” my mum apologised.
“We just want what’s best for our daughter.” dad added.
“I understand. So do I.” Eggsy beamed.
Eggsy drove us home, just like he had from his mum’s. Again, it was quiet but he spoke this time.
“What happened back there?”
“What do you mean?” I lovingly looked at him, smiling goofily.
“Your mum hugged me goodbye, your dad shook my hand. They were really happy when I left. What did you say?”
