My 18-year-old innocent daughter had taken some wrong turns in her life. With the help of an old family recipe, I was going to permanently turn her into a bimbo and set her on the right course.
She had no idea what was coming.
As a father, sometimes you have to help your daughter make the right choices in life. Sometimes they don't see the proper path, sometimes they get caught up on stuff that doesn't matter, sometimes they just need a push in the right direction.
My daughter was in need of such help now and all I needed to help her was finish an old family recipe.
A dash of an old family secret ingredient, stir 'til dark brown, take off the heat and let sit for an hour.
Taking the ladle, I poured out a healthy portion in a glass and set it on the table. It was a chore to make this stuff, but one taste of this home-brewed potion and my daughter would be good as new. Not only would she be in the right mindset to have her problems solved, it would be easy to undo her terrible life choices.
"Felicia!" I called out, placing the drink under a coaster and pulling out a chair for her. "Got a surprise for you, hun," I added.READ MORE
"What is it, Daddy?" She asked bouncing down the hall.
"Hey, pumpkin, take a seat. I've got a special surprise for you." I said, finishing my clean up and putting everything away.
Putting away the cooking pot, I turned towards her and took a seat myself, "I want you to help me taste test an old family recipe, I was making it and I figured that it would be best if I got your opinion on it." I said.
Pushing the glass toward her, I could see that she was wary of it, like it wouldn't be tasty or something. Maybe she thought it was medicine.
"Your great-grandfather made this for your great-grandmother, it's been in our family for ages and it's not only a tasty little drink, but it's solved many problems for both your mother and grandmother too." I said.
"Well, okay, here goes." She said and raised the cup to her lips. She didn't look too excited to try it, but did so anyway.
Watching her drink it down filled me with warmth. I was going to be able to fix my daughter and cure her of all that troubled her.
She'd looked apprehensive at first, but now she seemed to like the taste and drank half of it in one go.
"I knew you'd like it. Looks weird, but has a tantalizing flavor doesn't it, it draws you in." I commented.
She nodded to this, "Yeah, it really does, it's growing on me." She said and took another big sip, finishing it off.COLLAPSE
