Flashback Friday: harry and missus having an argument (a playful one) about who will give 17-year- old maverick ”the talk” since he brought his first girlfriend home for dinner to meet his parents.
You were doing laundry one afternoon and Harry was at the studio, while Maverick, who was now a teenager was doing homework in the kitchen with his girlfriend. You had finished folding some clothes, so you went to put them away before going back downstairs. When you opened Maverick’s bedroom door, you were shocked to see him and his girlfriend making out on his bed. You ended up dropping the basket of clothes onto the ground and the two teenagers jumped off and away from each other.
“What are you two doing up here?” you asked.
“Uh, we… we were taking a break,” Maverick blushed.
“Break’s over, you two need to go finish up your studying before her parent’s pick her up,” you said.
They both quickly get up and the girl walks past you completely embarrassed, while Maverick looks over at you.
“Don’t- we’ll talk about this later when your father gets home,” you said.
He nodded and went back downstairs.
Later that night after dinner, Maverick was cleaning up the kitchen when you pulled Harry aside.
“You’re not going to believe what I saw today,” you mumbled.
“What?” He asked.
“Your son and his girlfriend snuck up to his room! They were making out on his bed and I’m pretty sure had I not interrupted they would have been doing more,” you whispered. “I think it’s time we gave him the sex talk… more specifically you.”
“What? Why me?” He groaned.
“Because your his father and I’m pretty sure he’d be embarrassed if I did it,” you said.
“But Y/N,” he groaned. “We’re his parents, we both should be there for it.”
“No, not going to happen,” you said. “You’re his father and you know what it’s like to be a horny teenage boy, who can’t keep it his pants… but you also need to tell him he needs to wait.”
“Like we did?” He said. “We were younger than him when we first fucked.”
“Watch your fucking mouth,” you said hitting his arm. “And yeah, you’re right, we didn’t wait, but look at what happened. I got pregnant remember? If I hadn’t lost the baby… our lives… your life could have been very different.”
He sighed. “I know, I know, but it’s just… I feel like telling him to wait is so unrealistic. He’s a teenager with raging hormones…”
“So you’d rather our teenage son just go on a fucking spree because he can’t control it?” You rolled your eyes. “Do you want to be a grandfather that badly?”
“That’s not what I meant!” He groaned. “This is why you should give him the talk.”
“We’ve been through this!” You said. “You’re the father. You’ve also a penis as well, so like that automatically means it’s your job. If Maverick was a girl, I’d totally do it.”
He rolled his eyes. “Sure, you would.”
“I would! Because I’d have to tell our daughter about getting her period, so I’d throw in the whole spill about sex,” you said.
“But what if he’s like already had sex…” he said.
“Well, then you just gotta tell him to be safe always…” you said. “And you definitely need to tell him about girls and how just because they said yes one time doesn’ t mean it’s an automatic yes from here on out.”
“See! This is why you need to be there too,” he said. “Yes, I have a dick, but he came out of -”
“Do not finish that fucking sentence Harry Edward Styles or you will not be seeing what he came out of anytime soon,” you said.
“Mum, Dad,” Maverick said.
You both looked over at him and his face was flushed.
“Son, your Mum told me what happened this afternoon and I think we need to sit down and have a bit of a chat,” he said.
He nodded and you all sat down in the living room.
“First off, I’d like to know if you’ve… if uh… have you ever had sex,” he started off with. “If you have, that’s okay, we won’t be angry with you, we just want you to be honest.”
Maverick blushed. “Do we have to talk about this?”
“Yes, we do, you’re old enough to have this talk. I had this talk with your Nana Anna when I was around your age,” he said. “You know she did a fabulous job with me, maybe we should just get her to do-”
“Harry, get on with it,” you rolled your eyes.
“Look, I get it, you’re a teenager and you’ve got all these feelings going on and I won’t lie to you, your Mum and I… we were teenagers when we first slept together,” he said.
“I don’t need to hear about this,” he groaned.
“Anyway, your Mum and I slept together and she got pregnant,” he said.
“But… I’m… you had me in your twenties,” he said confused.
“That’s because I lost that baby,” you said. “Had I not, our lives would have been very different. We would have been teen parents and that’s something you need to think about. Like your father said, it’s normal to have the want to have sex, but there are huge consequences to having it.”
“Exactly, there are STD’s, pregnancies as the physical things, but also emotional things too,” Harry said. “And that goes for the girl or whoever you sleep with, you need to make always make sure the other person is willing and wanting to have sex too. And even if they want to at first, but change their mind, they’re allowed to do that and you need to stop.”
“And if they said yes once, doesn’t mean they’re always going to say yes,” you said.
“So, basically what we’re saying is always be sure before you choose to have sex and if you and your partner are willing, you need to be safe. I have condoms in our room if you need them, but I’ll also take you to buy some if you want,” he said.
“Okay, like I really appreciate this talk, but uh… I’m not planning on having sex anytime soon,” Maverick said. “I mean yeah, like I want to, but I also don’t feel ready… is that normal?”
“Yes, it’s perfectly normal,” Harry nodded.
Maverick nodded. “So… are we done?”
“Yeah! You can go upstairs and uh… get ready for bed,” he said.
“Okay,” Maverick said quickly before running up the stairs taking two at a time.
“Well, uh, that was interesting,” Harry mumbled shaking his head while you giggled.
“Yep, and think we get to go through this three more times,” you joked.
“Oh god,” he complained.
