Father and son sit down*

Father: Okay, I have a story... do you want to hear it?

Son: I love stories, what is about?

Father: It was in my high school years...

Son cuts Father off*

Son: Is it one of 'back in my day' stories?

Father: Not every story is a bore.

Soon: Okay, continue.

Father: So, my family and I went on a trip to England for my Mother's birthday. She'd always wanted to see the Big Ben in London. So we went and had a blast!

Son: And?

Father: And I have to skip a week of school, and there was this girl...

Son: Oooooh...

Father: And before I left, I didn't tell anyone were I'd gone. Went I got there she ran up to me with tears in her eyes.

Son: Whoa! That was a quick change in mood!

Father leans over on his knees and runs his eyes with his palms*

Father: Yeah, she hugged me like there was no tomorrow, and I asked her "What's wrong?"

Son: What did she say!

Father: She said that she though I commited suicide... I don't know why. Maybe because I was being bullied at the time, or cause no one knew where I have gone.

Son: That got a little dark...

Father: I held her head in my palms, and I asked her why she thought that, and she just said "I'm just glad that you're okay."

Son: Awe, that's sweet...

Father: The I kissed her, she was my best friend... an-and

Father stutters*

Father: I have no regrets

Son: Who was her? Do you guys still keep in touch? Was she you're first kiss?!

Father: She, is your Mother...
