Can't Quit Now

"Mom said Rik is the boy you planned to meet at camp," Shawna's dad said. "It was all in the email." Shawna knew she was in too deeply. She couldn't quit now. "That's not true. I told you, it was a joke. I never meant to go through with it. Me and Destiny were just having fun. Mom has this all bent out of shape."

For the first time since her father walked in, Shawna saw a shadow of doubt flit across his eyes. It's my word against Mom's, she thought, watching him process what she had told him. That's what you're thinking now, isn't it, Daddy? And you can't really trust the word of an ex-wife.
