My mom and dad just keep staring at me with their hands crossed. I did not know how to start the conversation with my parents because I know I’m in trouble. I might just tell them the truth or just not say anything. Its not always easy to be honest or tell the simple truth. My forehead started to sweat, and my foot wouldn’t stop tapping. I thought of what I did, and I got as red as a tomato. That was when my mother started tapping her foot impatiently. I took off late from my house to a party with friends and I did not come home for two days after that. The truth is terrifying to think about and know that there are consequences in the end. I signed and told my parents everything and they were relieved to hear that I am okay. They also went on a rant of how they did the same thing too when they were my age. My mom and dad told me to be honest with them about these things. I now know that it is not so hard to tell the simple truth.
