Happy Fathers Day?

This post is linked Saturday Centus - A 100 word story based on a prompt. The prompt is in bold below.
*********************************************************************************
WEEK 7 PROMPT

It was Fathers Day, 1984, when I heard that voice in the hallway...


My take on the prompt:


So, yea, I was grounded again. What a surprise.

“Irresponsible, bad decisions, disrespectful, stupid” ...just some of the words thrown at me earlier in the day.

I hunkered down in my room, being appropriately obedient.

It was Fathers Day, after all. I would wait a few more hours and then be a properly remorseful daughter.

Things would blow over. I was just a teenager. And teenagers do dumb things, right?

It was Fathers Day, 1984, when I heard that voice in the hallway.

It sounded like the words were being filtered through a walkie talkie.

I strained to hear Dad’s quiet reply. “No Officer, I don’t there are any weapons in her room.”

This is very intriguing. Whose he talking to the police about you or someone else. Are you going to kill yourself, did you rob someone? Oh I liked this.
