From Love Exactly:
I didn’t know how she knew the tattoo place, and I wasn’t really sure I wanted to find out. I followed her up the steps into the house where Dad sat with the laptop, glasses perched on his nose. He looked up and smiled.
“Where are my girls off to in such a hurry?”
Mom stopped for a moment like she hadn’t expected him to be there before she shrugged. “To see Tom.”
“Please get something better than a unicorn this time, mhmm?” he muttered as his eyes went back down to the laptop and he started typing.
“Uh? A unicorn?” I repeated.
Dad didn’t look up; instead he shook his head and continued typing with one finger.
“I always wanted a unicorn, so I got one,” Mom replied as she grabbed her hand-felted purse and went to the door.
I stood in the middle of the living room staring between the two of them in shock.
Dad looked up. “What’s wrong, dear?”
I opened my mouth and then closed it, unsure what to say.
“Are we going or not?” Mom asked from behind me.
