Dear Evan Hansen Reverse AU: Connor's Family
“Connor, who is she?” Looking up from his book Connor saw his mom and dad standing in the door.
“The woman who dropped this off for you.” His eyes widened as he saw the package of cookies.
‘Shit, I knew forgot about something.’
“She told us how you’ve been going over to her house everyday for the past few weeks. Now I thought I heard wrong the first time, I mean you’ve been going over to your friend Jared’s house but no. Why didn’t you tell me?” Instead of answering her Connor jumped off the bed and tried shoving past them only for his father to grab him by the shoulder.
“Connor, listen to your mother. She’s asking you why you’ve been going over to that woman’s house and you need to answer her.”
“Why should I? I mean it’s not like you cared to ask before.”
“Before I said I was going to Jared’s you didn’t ask me where I was going. You knew I was getting high but what do you do? Send me to rehab for a month. Rehab doesn’t work and you never try it again. Why should you care that I’m visiting some woman’s house?”
“Because she called you Evan!” Connor stopped to look at his mother who thrust the package into his hands. There was a note scribbled on top.
‘For my not so little boy, love mom.’
“Does she think you're Evan? Do you let that poor woman call you Evan?”
“So what if she does? It makes her happy.”
“But she’s not your mother Connor, I am.”
“Yeah, well you're not a very good one.” A stinging sensation on the side of his face let Connor know he had been slapped but he was too surprised by the look on his mother’s face.
“I’m trying my best!”
“You mean taking up one hobby after the other to keep yourself busy doing anything but be a mother? And what about you dad? I never see you yet you have the balls to say it’s my fault I wasn’t raised right. All you ever talk about is Zoe this and Zoe that well maybe I’m tired of everything being about perfect Zoe! At least when I’m at her house she doesn’t treat me like a no good junkie with no hope or future. She actually treats me like her son!” At this point tears were running down Connor’s face. He had held this in for so long it hurt to let everything out at once. His parents remained quiet as he shoved past them, wanting to be literally anywhere else.
