Heith Week Day 5: Family/
Summary: Raising a family in Texas as two men of color can be hard, but Hunk and Keith do their best.
Notes: This operates under the assumption that Keith is Korean. CW for some anti-immigrant sentiment
This is a direct continuation of a scene from Into the Blue Again, but reading that is not necessary to enjoy this fic
Keith blinked. He was sitting in an uncomfortable plastic chair, with the equally discomforting suspicion he was missing a good chunk of his memory. In front of him, an unfamiliar woman sat at the heavy, wooden desk with her hands folded in front of her, an expectant look on her wrinkled face. He attempted to clear his throat. "Could you repeat that, please?”
“I said, Mr. Kogane, your daughter was caught threatening a fellow student with a knife. When she said she was sure her father would let her bring one, we were forced to intervene. That’s why I called you.” The woman looked indignant and waited for him to say something.
Keith looked discreetly at the items on the lady’s desk for a name tag of any sort. He was in luck. At the corner of her desk was a name placard with Tammy Schultz embossed in brass lettering. “Ms. Schultz-” he began.
“Mrs-” she corrected tersely.
“Sorry, Mrs. Schultz. With all due respect, my daughter isn’t perfect, but she doesn’t usually cause trouble like this.” He hoped. Knowing his luck, his kid would probably be as irreverent of authority as he was. “I’m sure that kid must have said something to provoke her.”
“Are you suggesting a child could do anything to bring that kind of threat upon himself?” Schultz pierced him with her gaze. Keith refused to shrink.
