Shane and Mitchie were sitting in the café where her dad was supposed to meet them. Shane had held her hand as the figure of her father approached them. He looked greasy, and his in the state he was in it looked like he'd gotten drunk the night before.

"I see you brought a friend today. What's the name?" he asked looking at Shane.

"Shane Gray," Shane spat.

"Pleasure. Is he you boyfriend or somethin'?" Mitchie's dad asked looking at her.

"Yeah," she replied gaining some courage, "you got a problem with that?"

"Not really. I saw the other guys with you yesterday. How many guys have you screwed till now?"

Shane glared at him. "None, unlike you," Shane said staring at him with disgust, "you probably screwed a girl last night."

"Don't you dare talk to me like that!" her dad shouted, "just because you're her fucking boyfriend doesn't give you the right to talk to me like that. I'm still her freakin' father."

"Oh, is that what you call a father? A guy who beat up his wife, a guy who dragged his own daughter away so that she would forcibly live with him? Well, sorry to break it to you, but that's no dad. That's some drunk hobo who can't even tell that his daughter's in pain!" Shane screamed and stood up pulling Mitchie with him, "don't think that I'll let you touch her, our even harm her. I'll always be by her side, and that's something you never accomplished.

Her dad glared at Shane. "You'll regret this you bastard," her dad said walking away from them.

Mitchie was in shatters now. She felt everything around her shift positions. Her knees buckled as she got dizzy but Shane caught her.

"Shh, it's okay," he said as she whimpered while he carried her to the limo where Jason and Nate were waiting.

He put her on his lap and she cried into his chest. He gently stroked her hair as Jason and Nate silently watched.

"I'm sorry," she muttered.

"For what?" he asked eyeing her.

"For getting you into this mess."

"Mitch, I chose to get into this mess, and if it means helping you than I don't care what'll happen to me as long as your safe. I won't let your dad touch you, I promise. I'm your superman, remember?" she chuckled and kissed his cheek.

"Okay! Quite it lovebirds!" Jason suddenly shouted, "I smell Starbucks."

They all started laughing. You can count of Jason to ruin the moment. Nate and Jason started fighting about who drank the largest number of cappuccinos while Mitchie looked up at Shane. He gave her a small gentle smile.

"I love you," she whispered to him.

Shane kissed her forehead and rested his head on Mitchie's. "I love you, too."

"Awe," said Jason as he snapped a picture of them on his phone, "this is so cute."

Mitchie gave him her famous death glare, and broke into a laughing fit when he dropped his phone. She was laughing, at least, that's all that mattered to Shane now.
