Hi! It’s me! Lily!!
Ok, umm.. wow. That escalated quickly.
So… Remember when Liz went home to talk to her parents? Well… her parents… they’re kind of hands off. In fact, you’d think they don’t care sometimes, that’s why there was that huge blowup months ago that led to me meeting Jack. They aren’t great at expressing their emotions, and they drive Liz pretty hard. I guess that’s just the Chinese way.
But… umm… don’t do what Kevin did.
So as Liz tells it, she told them everything – what he did, how he behaved, what he tried to do… and while she was near tears, her parents just kind of sat there. After she was done, her father just looked at her, and said three simple words.
“Where is he?”
Liz didn’t really want to tell him, but he wasn’t having any of it. She was sat right there until she told them where he lived. Then they told her to stay there.
A couple of hours later they came back. They wouldn’t tell her what they did, but they said if he ever speaks another word to her to tell them, and they’ll have to… make the lesson stick a little better. Then they gave her a hug and told her that no boy will ever be allowed to take liberties with her.
She asked if they hurt him. He just chuckled. “No,” he said enigmatically. “I didn’t have to.”
Come to think of it, he has a lot of business overseas, but has never told me specifically what he does. Maybe I’m better off not knowing.
Liz just said he’s in the import/export business. I’d guess he, well, knows some people.
Anyway, I’m glad they have her back. This way I don’t have to judo flip him then smother him with my floppy bits. hahaha!!!
… he’d like that. Plan B time.
Anyway, Liz apologized. I was just happy she was talking to me again. I told her I hope next time I can like the boy she’s with. She said I’d be lucky to meet him after this debacle. But… then she gave me a big hug and said thank you.
