Anyone but Him
A/N: I have decided to watch Season 1 again while we are on our mini break and I came across the scene between Erin and Hank in episode 5 where he tells her she can't date Jay:
"You left a string of broken hearts behind you since you were 15, I need Halstead 100% effective and not throwing pebbles at your window at 3 in the morning"- Hank
When Hank first thought of the idea of taking in the young mouthy female CI, he honestly thought the hardest things he would have to overcome would be Erin's drug habit, playing peace maker between the teen and his wife, and keeping her mother, Bunny, as far from her a he could. Though the latter does not seem to be much of a problem at all since Bunny has yet to make any contact since Erin has moved in. Not that he expected much of an effort to begin with, for all the damn that women has ever shown towards her daughter.
Hank reasoned as an officer he was more than willing and capable of handling any issues that would appear in order to give the teen a fighting chance. However, as he laid in bed wide awake (after a 12 hour shift mind you) at 3 o'clock in the morning listening to some poor sobbing dumbass throw rocks at the wrong window, he started to have second thoughts.
One thing he did not for see coming when taking in the teen girl, would be the strings of broken hearted teen boys that she would leave in her wake.
Hank wished this was the first time this has happened, but sadly it was not. Hank has been forced to have sit downs with a few of them when they refused to go home until Erin spoke to them. Hell one kid had the balls to come to him and ask for her hand in marriage. For the life of him Hank could not understand (really he just refused to acknowledge) what she was doing to these boys that would made them lose all their self-respects if it meant she showed them some kind of attention.
The girl goes through boys like their newspapers once she is done with it she throws them in the trash and never looks back. Every time he tries to talk to her about it all it does is make things worse. Right now he has one of the neighborhood boys, Tommy Romero, outside his house in tears. How does he know that it's Tommy because this is the second night in a row and he still can't get the window right, idiot.
"Hank if you do not get rid of him you can forget sleeping in this bed with me", the tried voice of his wife Camille said turning to look at him
"Get rid of him? I am still in the process of getting rid of the last one, what the hell am I supposed to do? Huh?" Hank commented back in frustration
"I don't care! You are the one who had the bright idea of taking in a teen girl, so you are the one who is going to fix this now!" Camille whisper/yelled while pushing him until he was off of the bed and positioned herself so that he could not crawl back into the bed.
Cursing under his breathe Hank made is way down the stairs to where the boy was.
"Erin, I know you can hear me! Baby, please!"
Hank paused at the door in hopes that Erin would get up and handle this herself, but after a few minutes he gave in he was bone tired and all he wanted to do was sleep. So he stepped out the door to talk some sense into the teen boy.
"Hey kid, shut the hell up alright my family is trying to sleep here. Get the hint she don't want you!"
Okay so may that was the wrong thing to say to the already emotionally distraught boy because it only caused him to sob harder. It took Hank a good 30 minutes to calm the boy down and another 20 to get him to go home, which he did only after he promised to put in a good word for him to Erin.
As Hank made his way back upstairs he made a vowed one day that he would have the power to put restrictions on who Erin is allowed to see.
Let me know how you like it and as a treat here is the full conversation:
"The over protective father thing was fine when I was a teenager, but I don't need you looking out for me anymore"
"It's Halstead I'm looking out for I've seen what happens to the guys you date"
"And what is that supposed to mean?"
"You left a string of broken hearts behind you since you were 15, I need Halstead 100% effective and not throwing pebbles at your window at 3 in the morning"
"You don't get to tell me who I can and cannot see on my personal time"
"My unit, my rules. Yow wanna date a cop there are plenty other districts out there"
