"Mom please," I begged. I had just barely gotten home and had decided that the less time I waited the more courage I had so I just went for it. As I had assumed she would she had immediatly turned me down. "Come on mom, I don't ever get to do stuff like this." Which of course I knew was a lie. So many times I had gotten Mom to cave in with much smaller requests using this same tactic.
"I said no, Heather now please leave me alone." But I was not to be so easily detered and continued to press her. We were still agueing when my dad came home and asked what was going on. I quickly jumped in to present my case before my mother got the chance. "I really want to go to a Halloween party at Carly's house this weekend but Mom's to afraid I'll get into some kind of trouble. Oh please Daddy can I go." I said doing my best immpression of puppy dog eyes.
"I'll talk to your mother about it." I nodded solomly but was jumping for joy inside. I knew that when my father said he was going to talk to Mom it meant he agreed with me he just knew better than to get in a fight with her in front of me. As far as I was concerned I'd already won.
