"So tell me a bit about your week," Sharon said, with a smile.
Parker shifted uncomfortably in his seat, his eyes already glancing towards the clock.
I could tell that he hated therapy just as much as I did.
"About the goals we talked about," she continued.
"I lost my temper once," Parker admitted, leaning forward so that his forearms were resting on his thighs. "On the nurse at Lee's school."
I tried not to laugh, but failed.
Sharon shook her head at me as the side of Parker's lips tilted up.
"What happened?" she asked.
"They um..." Parker trailed off. "Well at the beginning of the school year we sort of I guess strategically placed Lee in his classes?"
I really tried hard not to laugh this time, but I failed again.
"Lee," Sharon said, shaking her head at me.
"Shut up," Parker muttered. "Anyways, we were trying to account for his claustrophobia. And then they brought in this new girl and put her next to Lee and caused him to have a panic attack. So I sort of lost it on the school nurse."
"Did you apologize afterwards?"
"No," Parker declined. "I mean, I told Lee that I wasn't mad, but I was still pretty heated."
"So he lied," I pointed out.
Parker just shot me a glare.
"What about you Lee?" Sharon asked.
"What about me?"
Parker sighed, leaning back in his seat.
That drives him crazy, when I repeat what someone just asked me.
"How did you do on your goals this week?"
"Well I only had two detentions," I pointed out.
"And he skipped one," Parker interjected.
"It's my turn to talk," I informed him.
"Did you skip one?" Sharon asked me.
"Lee, you need to start being more responsible."
I would be rich if people had to pay me every time they told me that.
Isn't that how the saying goes? Something like that.
"I was tutoring someone," I defended.
A smile stretched across Parker's face.
"You can't forget about your responsibilities for someone else's," Sharon lectured.
"Who were you tutoring again?" Parker asked me.
"I will murder you in your sleep," I muttered.
Sharon just waited for my response.
"A girl," I admitted. "The new girl, McKenna."
"The one that caused the panic attack?"
"Yes, the one that caused Parker to break his goal-"
"We aren't talking about me right now," Parker interjected.
"But it's true."
"Okay boys," Sharon interrupted. "Lee, I'm very happy to hear that you're starting to open up to another girl."
