imlastamericangirl asked: I guess it didn't go through. Lol. It was that Rigby goes and stays at Cassie's and sees the way her mom acts and treats her and goes home feeling so relived that she has a dad like Michael. 😊
oh ok, here it is!
The only reason Rigby stayed the whole night is because she knew she couldn’t leave Cassie at a time like this. She sat on the couch curled up in a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate, watching Cassie pace back and forth. She’d just got done a screaming match with her mom, ending with a lamp getting thrown across the room and her mom walking out on them.
“Sorry.” Cassie mumbled, taking a seat beside Rigby. She leaned against Cassie, shaking her head. There was no reason Cassie should be apologizing. She hadn’t come storming into the apartment, yelling nonsense. If Rigby hadn’t already known Cassie’s mom she would have thought she was on some type of murderous rampage. She’d complained about Cassie not going to school again, saying that the whole faculty looked badly at her and how it was all Cassie’s fault. For the record, Cassie had stayed calm and level-headed up until her mom got hysteric. And then she lost her patience and the screaming had started.
Rigby reached out to pat Cassie’s head. “It’s fine, no harm done here.”
Cassie snorted. “She’s got a terrible aim, that’s why.”
“Which isn’t exactly a bad thing.”
The next morning, she came home, dragging her feet from exhaustion. They’d stayed up for most of the night, Rigby listening as Cassie talked about the fights she’d had with her mom recently. All she wanted to do was sleep.
But first, hug Michael.
She wrapped her arms around his waist, resting her cheek on his back.
“Hey, you’re home.” Michael said, turning around to give her a squeeze of his own. “Had fun?”
“It was interesting.” Rigby shrugged, still holding on to Michael.
“What’s with the clinginess?” Michael smiled at her. “I mean, I’m not complaining, but I think I’d like to know if you need something before I fully enjoy this hug.”
Rigby shook her head. “I’m just lucky to have you, that’s all.” She sighed. “Not all parents are as cool as you.”
“Well yeah, I’m one of a kind.” He kissed the top of her head. “But I’m lucky to have you too, thanks Rig.”
