After the prayer and once everyone began to eat, Shawn turned his phone to silent, which was generally the norm for him. It made him smirk when just seconds later his sister's phone went off, to which she recieved the same small lecture of no phones during breakfast. It made Shawn giggle under his breath at his sister, though this was hardly the first time she didn't pay the rules mind. As he took another bite of food, he glanced up to make eye contact with her, to which she stuck her tongue out at him before starting her 'secret' texting. He just rolled his eyes at her, shaking his head slightly in disapproval at her.
It was almost an awesome moment for Shawn when he saw dad staring at Bailey, and the anticipation of a bust was almost too good to be true, which it ultimately proved to be just that... Too good to be true. It was almost a role reversal, where this time dad was the one busted because his phone rang. It even seemed mom had taken notice and giggled, but it made Shawn slightly sad that the bust didn't go through. He'd get his revenge from the slap earlier, or at least see her get in trouble. It wasn't a matter of if she would, it was just a matter of when, and he'd be there when it would happen to watch the bust unfold.
When breakfast finally ended and he washed his own plate after Bailey, she looked at him once the parents were in the other room to ask him what he was doing with his friends.
"I ain't sure yet, sis. I still gotta check what Caleb texted and see if he had something in mind, ya know?"
The texts!! His phone had vibrated on several occasions during breakfast, and as soon as he answered Bailey he pulled his phone out to reveal the two longer texts from his friend. He winced slightly, unsure of what to say or do. He hadn't planned on anyone coming over... But it was Caleb, and he's come over a lot... Usually whenever Shawn said he'd just stay home too. Odd that works. Regardless, he began to text his friend.
Oh, uh, okay? I wasn't really planning on having someone over... But... I'll need to ask my parents. I don't think they'd mind since you come over a lot, but it'd be best if I do just because I don't want to get in trouble.
I'm sorry this was a bit late btw, I can't txt at breakfast and just finished. Movie is alright so long as it isn't some horror movie... Not with what happened. Our family isn't going, we didn't really know them that well and my sis is scared to go lol. I'll txt back when I know if you can come in or not.
With that, he made his way to the den, waiting patiently for his parents to finish their conversation so that he could ask them if Caleb could come over.
