It was a beautiful hot Friday on the summer 2006. I was in school with my friend we were in gym at the time we were planning a pool party for the next day. We were so exited cause it was going to be the 1st time that we were going to ask for permission to go out by ourselves. Personally me, I was really nervous. Since i was the youngest daughter my parents were extremely stricted with me, so deep inside I was afraid to my parents reaction. My friends and i accorded to ask for permission as soon as we get home. But i still had no idea of how to bring up this topic to my parents.
I got home around 2pm. However my dad was sleeping and my mom was on the phone. So I went to shower and I couldn’t stop thinking how to ask my parents for the permission, so for the moment I wanted to keep my mom happy with me so She would be on my side; so I cleaned my room, I did the laundry and finished the dishes. But then I started thinking if i should ask my mom 1st, so when I finally convinced myself to tell my mom i received a phone call and a text message of my friends they wanted to let me know that they were all set with their permission so that made me way more nervous.
I ran to my room and started crying i was so sure that my parents were going to say no, i cried till i fall asleep. I woke up around 7pm and went down stairs and walk into the kitchen and said. “Do you need me to help you mom.? ” “Do you want something? ” My mom said. After she stared at me for a few seconds. I smiled at het and grabbed the plates, folks and cups to organized them on the table. After we ate my dad went to watch TV, and my mom however went to the living room to read magazines. It seemed like anything was working out i got very upset, and went to sleep.
So it was finally Saturday, when I checked my phone all of my friends had texted me to let me know that they had their permission and set a time which would be at 3:30pm so by the time I woke up my dad was home with my mom sitting in the living room so I didn’t think it twice I just jumped and said. “Mom, Dad; theres something I’ve been wanting to tell you. ” They both looked at eachother and my dad said. “What is it ? ” I stared at them for a couple of seconds; my eyes got watery, but i still told them. “My friends and I planned a pool party for this afternoon at 3:30pm. “
They stayed quit and stared at me for like 10 seconds, out of a sudden i started dropping tears. I was so sure that they were going to say no, and my mom asked me. “Whats wrong, why you crying ? ” “Cause i know your not going to let me go. ” I replyed. My mom looked at my dad with the surprised face and my dad said. “Of course we’re going to let you, we trust you; so u can go. But make sure you come before midnight. I learnt a lot out of all the drama i made out of nothing and all the prejudge I made, which I regret. I also learnt to stand up and ask or say my opinion before judging other peoples thoughts.
