“Yeah, I got them all. Do I have to stay for dinner, it’s so boring?” I say.

“Yes, Dad wants Dean to meet the whole family, welcome him to the company and make him feel like a part of it. It’s not what you want but sometimes we have to do what we don’t want to do.”

“Ok, but can I go to my room after we eat, I have homework?” I say.
