We just got back from Tokyo and didn't even have time to settle in and meet up with friends again. Evan never even left my apartment to drop his suitcase off to his, he stayed with me while we arranged a trip to my parents' house. I didn't want to pay them a visit that fast, but Evan assured me that it was time. I had been putting it off for too long, which was true. But things changed since the last time I spoke to them. Last time I assured my father Evan was just a friend and now he was coming along with me, as my boyfriend. I dreaded meeting them, but as I glanced aside at my calm looking boyfriend I could tell he didn't mind this trip at all. He looked excited about it. It hurt seeing him like that. He was going to get disappointed. Reaching for his hand I gently held it and leaned in, pressing a kiss to his jaw.

"Whatever happens, just know that I love you no matter what. I don't care about anyone's opinion about us."

Evan wrapped an arm around my waist and pulled me to his side, never slowing down his pace. We were walking to our gate, needing to check in. He kissed my head and then pulled away, ready to check in. He helped me check in as well and then rushed with me onto the plane.

"I don't care about what people think of us being together either." He told me, "But we owe it to your parents to at least tell them in person and if they disagree, that's fine. At least we showed them the respect they deserve."

"How can you be so perfect but flawed at the same time?"

Evan raised a sharp dark eyebrow at me, "You think I'm flawed?" He asked amused.

We found our seats in first class which wasn't that hard since everyone seemed eager to help. Evan let me sit down first and then followed. I leaned back in the comfy chair and pulled my scarf away, using it as a blanket and I got as comfortable as possible. Maybe I could squeeze in a nap. I needed to be wide awake when we met up with my parents.

"You are." I told him without hesitation, "But so am I. We're humans, we're anything but perfect. I'm sure you can name tons of things about me which annoys you. My weaknesses and things I need to work on. And I can name one thing about you which absolutely annoys me, but I also understand why you're behaving like that."

He sighed, knowing exactly what I was talking about, "Priscilla."

"I'm just saying that I get why you're behaving the way you are, but I also don't get it. Just tell her you miss her and you want to see her more often. Why can't you even tell her? What are you afraid of?" I asked him, speaking quietly because I knew it was a sensitive subject, "I really want to know. But if it has a deeper meaning going way back into your childhood, I also know that you're not ready to talk." I leaned closer to him, leaning my elbow against the armrest and leaning my chin against my palm while looking into his eyes, "Would you be upset if I contacted her? Asking her to come over when she can so I can introduce myself to her, personally?"

"I told you she'll be coming over sooner or later for Emily and Nick-"

"I want her to come over for you." I told him firmly, "I love Emily and Nick, but you're more important."

He leaned his head back against his chair and closed his eyes, a very long, tired sigh leaving his lips, "Fine, you can contact her. Just don't tell her to do anything. Just let her know you want to meet with her, that's it. If she comes over, she comes over. If not then we'll wait for her."

That was at least something. I thought he'd get upset with me being so forward, I guess I was wrong. Evan understood why I wasn't letting go of the subject. He knew I only pressed him because I wanted what was best for him. The same he was doing to me right now. Pressing me to see my parents because he knew I needed to have some closure. We would help each other, we'd grow stronger together. Smiling I leaned in once more and pressed a kiss to his pulse, causing him to snap his eyes open and stare at me in shock.

His shock lasted only a second, fading into mischievousness, "You coming onto me, Zo?"

I smirked, "I have no idea what you're talking about. I just wanted to kiss my boyfriend"

"That's not an appropriate place to kiss while we're in public." He smirked.

I feigned shock, "Is it not? Why? Because it makes you squirm in your seat?"

His smirk widened, "You know it." He placed his hand on the back of my head and kept me in place as he leaned in, pressing his lips against my temple and then slowly trailing them down, whispering in my ear, "You want to play with me?"

Laughing I pushed against his shoulder, effectively making him let go of me, "Unfortunately for you I'm not that adventurous as your previous girls."

eir faces and knew it was low of me, but I was just so pissed I wanted them to be upset too.

"That's right, I'm not dating just a pretty face here. Evan actually has layers." I turned to Evan, "Can we go now. I need some fresh air, maybe we can head into town for dinner."

Evan met my gaze, "So we're still in town for two days, you can contact Zoey anytime."

With that we left the house, taking our luggage with us. We didn't have a car waiting but I didn't care. I rather wait outside for a car than spending another minute with them. Hand in hand we walked away from the porch and waited at the gate. Evan called a cab, his eyes never leaving mine. Once he hung up he pocketed his phone and reached for me, running his knuckles lightly over my cheek.

"You okay?"


"Still upset?" He sounded amused.

"Really upset."

"That might not have been the right time to talk about my pretty face and my billions."

I glared at my boyfriend who wasn't completely taking my side here, "It was the best time considering he mentioned something about marriage. Like hell, I'm marrying some dude he thinks is right for me because he has a job which he sees as appropriate. Now he knows he made fun of a guy who is actually better than Mr. Powers' son."

"I'm a great guy." Evan nodded, still sounded amused.

He wanted to lighten the mood and it worked. I laughed and gave him a playful shove.

"Your arrogance knows no boundaries."

"You did praise me quite a lot in front of your parents, I think I'm allowed to be a little arrogant right now."

Smiling I leaned in and wrapped my arms around his waist, resting my head against his chest. It didn't go well, but I knew from the beginning things wouldn't go well. They needed to accept that I wasn't going to follow whatever plan they had for me. I was going to live my life the way I wanted. Once they accepted that we could move forward.

"You feeling a little better?" Evan asked, wrapping his arms around me as well and kissing my head.

"Hm, better already." I told him quietly, "I'm glad you're here. You handled that better."

"You got emotional, that's okay."

"I just want to get away from here." I murmured.

"I'm sure things will work out, Zo. Everyone just needs to calm down and let things sink in. We're here another two days. I'm sure either your mom or dad will contact you."

I sighed, "It doesn't matter either way. I said what I wanted to get off my chest." Pulling away from Evan I smiled at him, "After this, we deal with Priscilla."

He rolled his eyes at me, "I knew you were going there." He then looked at me again and smiled, "That was the deal, so yeah, we'll deal with Priscilla after this trip."

We took a cab to the hotel to drop our luggage and then headed into town together. It was a nice change, helping me get my mind off things. Evan made sure to entertain me, trying to make me laugh. He didn't need to put much effort into it though. Everyone liked hanging out with Evan since he was easy to get along with. He never left my side and made sure I could lean on him when I felt down. I was definitely going to marry this guy.
