Good Cop, Bad Cop
A/N: This is a little fic about Rafael and his family. He has 3 children with you but you’re starting to see a pattern regarding who always plays good cop and who plays the bad cop!
Thank you @minidodds for your help, as always!
Teeth gritted and fists clenched, you did you best to keep your patience as your daughter screamed like a banshee in the aisle of the supermarket. Her twin sister hid behind her father’s leg as you attempted to calm the five year old with a toddler strapped to your chest.
“No, Serena, you can’t have another bar of chocolate, we have enough at home!” Your patience was certainly being put to the test today.
“But I want THIS one!” your daughter screamed back at you.
You looked pleadingly at Rafael, who looked away from you guiltily, without offering any assistance. If he had had his way, Serena would have five candy bars in her fat little fists.
“I said no! You remember what the dentist said, you eat too much chocolate. We’re not buying any more.”
Snatching the bar out of your daughter’s hand, you shoved it back on the shelf, letting her father deal with his wailing daughter.
“I hate you!” Serena’s words echoed in your ears as you pushed the shopping cart down the aisle. Her words shot daggers through your heart.
Thinking back to all the times you and Rafael had laughed at parents with their devil spawns throwing tantrums in public places, you grimaced, never once imaging that you would become one of them.
Out of the corner of your eye, you watched Serena fling herself into her father’s arms. “Papi!” she sobbed into this shirt.
You turned and walked further away, out of earshot, pulling relevant items off the shelves and forcefully shoving them into the cart.
