Daddy, Daughter Bonding

***First: I'm super sorry for the late update. I was having a little writers block and you guys deserve the best I can give you. I would rather give you an awesome chapter late, than a crappy chapter on time.***

A/N: Okay, so good news guys! I'm editing another story here on Wattpad. It just started and this is the first story the author is writing. It is called "Boy Crisis 101">>> Go read it!!!

Lilly's POV:

     I looked in the mirror checking once again that I looked absolutly and utterly perfect. I have been standing infront of the mirror for 20 minutes now. Every couple minutes I added to my makeup or fixed my hair. I am totally neverous and freaking out. Jake is coming to pick me up in 5 minutes and I don't think I'm ready to do this. My heart is pounding like a machine gun.

I can do this.

I snapped out of my thought as the doorbell rang. Time to see my dad. "I'll get it." I yelled from my room  upstairs. I knew it was Jake and if I didn't go now I wouldn't go at all.

       The agency let us go back home now that the potential treat was under control. They still wouldn't let my dad come home though. General Forson knew we needed some time to get used to things. Today was a huge spy conference/ball in celebration of our achievement, being that we aren't even official spies snd we are teenagers and we did so good on the mission. Plus we missed Junior prom so I made General Forson feel bad enough to throw us one. He didn't say it was our "prom" , but I secretly knew it was because of my begging.

        I opened the door to see my stunning date to the ball. "Well hello, handsome." I stated noticing how hot this boy really is. He was wearing a tux that looked amazing on him. I gotta say, I love a boy in a tux. "You're right. I am handsome." He said and I gave him a playful swat to the shoulder. "I'm just kidding. Seriously, you look beautiful." He said looking me up and down once. I was wearing a long red gown with black pumps. Let me tell you, these things are not fun to walk in. "Why thank you." I said looking down blushing. "Shall we go?" he said acting all fancy. I really wish I didn't have to though. I was really excited for this before I found out my father was going to be there and I had to talk to him. I just don't think I'm ready.  "Do we have to?" I said whining like a little kid. "Is this about your dad?" he asked and I just looked down with sadness flooding my face. "It is going to be fine. I will be right next to you the whole time. I would think you would be excited to finally talk to him again after a year." he said giving me a sympathetic squeeze to my shoulder. "After everything he did while he was brainwashed I just...I don't know...I don't want to forgive him." I said as Jake started escorting me to the car. "Forgiving is the easy part. Forgetting. Not so much." he said and I just didn't reply. "Come on we are going to have a fun night." he said and I got in the car.

         Twenty minutes later we were at a local event hall. Since headquarters is so far away and most of us live here they agreed to have the conference/ball near us. When we got there I immediately saw my mom. She rushed over to me. "Okay, I know you guys are getting this as a replacement prom, but remember this is still a conference so be respectful and elegant. Most of the people who come here are snooty, rich spies so don't get on their bad side. Other than that you should be good. Dance a little. Talk to the high end spies. Use common sense. Oh and don't forget to have fun." she seemed very excited about this and I really don't think that is normal. "Okay, thanks mom." I said and gave her a half hug. She instantly ran of to go find Josh and tell him the same.

        Jake looped his arm in mine as we walked into the room. I saw all my friends laughing and having an awesome time. As soon as this talk with my dad was over I could too. Josh didn't have nearly as much to worry about. He wasn't the sibling that had a knife to their throat by their own father. I'm happy that it wasn't him though. I was the only one who could reverse the brainwash tactics. I looked around to see the face I was hoping would disappear. He saw my glance and signaled for me to go over. I lookd at Jake and he saw the same thing. "It's okay. Even if I can't sit next to you I will be close by. I love you and if that guy does anything to you I will do something about it." He gave his little pep talk and I couldn't help but feel helpless. I never like to feel weak. A spark lit in me and I lifted my head high. "It's fine. I'll be fine. Come on, let's go." I said showing my new found courage and strutting right over to my father.
