Stepdaughter Braylin (Bailey) is clad in sexy pink lingerie, slipping on denim shorts. She poses for several sexy selfies, and accidentally texts one to her stepfather (Clarke Kent). He’s in the living room reading a book when she sneaks in, trying to intercept the photo received on his phone, which is lying on the couch next to him. “Is that Braylin?”, he asks, without turning around to look at her.
“What do you think?”, she says while covering his eyes playfully with her hands from behind the couch. “Ah, I think it’s my sweet Braylin”, he says. “I just want to give my favorite stepfather a little kiss. What are you doing?”, she says. “Thought you could surprise me, didn’t you?”, stepdad mocks. “Yeah, I did”, she says as she picks up the phone surreptitiously. “Well, you can’t fool me, you little prankster”, he says triumphantly, taking his phone from her hands.
“Well, I just wanted to show you something”, she declares. “You know back home in England the children aren’t usually quite so casual with their elders”, he points out. “Well, I could stop if you like. I could just go”, she retorts. “No, I like it. You and your mother are really something else. Nothing like the women back home”, he claims. “You know we’re lucky to have such a refined man in our home. I was worried it would seem ‘UNCOUGH”, she says. “Uncouth, sweetheart”, he corrects her pronunciation. “It’s been a whirlwind six months moving in, marrying your mother”, he goes on.
“You enjoy it, right? We aren’t too much to handle?”, she asks, sitting on the couch next to him. “No, it’s delightful. You’ve really put a spring in my step,” he claims. “Oh, has it?”, she says, affecting a British accent “Yeah, it makes me feel young again”, he says. “Well, give me your phone. I want to show you something”, she says, adding “Please”. “Please…”, he repeats, pausing. “Please, daddy”, she revises.
Looking at his phone, stepdad is shocked. “Uh, please, please let me explain please”, she urges, flustered. “What is this?”, he demands, showing her his phone’s screen. “Um, I really didn’t mean to send that to you. I was just taking pictures for the show I’m going to…”, she says. He asks; “You go out, dressed like this?” “It’s more like a rave, and everyone does it”, she contends. “Well, just because everyone jumps off a bridge doesn’t mean you should do it too”, he states.
“Yeah, I was trying to get your phone and delete it before you saw it’, she admits, adding: “’cause…”. He interrupts: “Yes, because you’re ashamed”, he avers. “I’m not ashamed. Look, I didn’t think you’d understand, and obviously I was right”, she claims. “While I can admire that you Americans are more open about these things, to me this is unacceptable”, he says. “Why do you care so much? I’m just your stepdaughter, and other people don’t care”, she maintains. “The other people will lose respect for you”, he insists.
“Look, it’s like I said. Everyone wears this stuff to this kind of event. It’s not like I’m going to a doctor’s office or to a job interview, am I right?”, Braylin says. “You’re going to be posting on line for everyone to see”, he contends. “Look, I was just trying to send it to my friends. I did not mean to include you. I fucked up, okay?”, she exclaims. “Oh, I see how it is”, he responds. “Look, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to swear. I’m just really frustrated right now”, she insists.
“Well, you’re not exactly being very careful, are you?’, he asks. “Can we please just delete this, and we can literally pretend that it never happened”, she pleads. Stepdad puts his phone in his pocket and flatly says: “No”. “No?”, she asks. “No. We won’t delete this and we won’t forget about this”, he says with finality. “Look, I really didn’t mean to disappoint you. I just want you to love and respect me”, she insists.
“Well, you’re not who I thought you were. I don’t think we have anything more to discuss”, he says coldly. “I really didn’t mean to disappoint you”, she reiterates, adding “I mean it”. “A bit late for that now”, he responds. “I’m sorry”, she whispers. He puts his arm around her and kisses her on the forehead, saying “I’m sorry too, baby, okay?”, and kisses her again. “I shouldn’t have made you feel like that”, he adds. “I just want you to be proud of me”, she says. “I am proud. You’re a ray of light”, he declares. He kisses her on the lips, and she pulls away from him.
“Sorry, I couldn’t help it”, he confesses. “I never thought”, she says, after stumbling over her words. “You never thought?”, he reacts. “I mean, I know we flirted sometimes, but it was just for fun”, she smiles nervously. “I see”, he says, looking away. “I liked it though, but we really shouldn’t”, she declares. “So you’re a little tease?”, he mocks. “Excuse me?”, she says, offended. “Well, I see what’s going on here. You sent me the photo, and then you’re draping yourself all over me”, he claims.
“Look, I thought I made it clear that was an accident and that we should just pretend it didn’t happen”, she reminds. “Look, what is so wrong with me not liking the idea of you going out there in this outfit in front of all these other men?”, he asks. “I don’t see why you care so much”, she states. “Why wouldn’t I care?’, he asks. “No one else ever did”, she answers. “Look, you’re not wrong. I haven’t handled this very well. I know you had a troubled childhood…”, he begins. She starts to get up, and declares: “You’re right! You’re not handling this right and you’re just like all the rest. Your love is conditional!”. She gets up abruptly and marches out of the living room.
Later, Braylin is lying on her bed crying, when stepdad knocks on her door. She asks: “Is that you?”. He enters the bedroom and says: “Yeah”, smiling. “You’re trying to surprise me, weren’t you?”, she asks, clutching a stuffed animal toy. “I know I can be a bit of a brat”, she confesses. “You’re not. I’m just old-fashioned. You really didn’t do anything wrong. You even tried to fix it, didn’t you?”, stepdad says, sitting down on the bed near her. He caresses her arm and asks: “Cold?”. “Well, it just feels good”, she says, kissing him on the lips.
“Is that okay?”, she wonders. “Of course”, he replies. “Could I do it again?”, she asks. He nods Yes. They kiss, and Braylin says: “You know I’m not the kind of girl you think I am”. Taking the bait, he asks: “What kind of girl are you?’. “I’m shy”, she says nervously. He kisses her on the arm, saying: “You are?”. She nods Yes. “You know I’m not too old to show myself I can be someone I’m not, someone I want to be, beautiful, sexy…”, she says, causing him to snicker. “Why are you laughing?”, she asks. “Well you don’t see it, do you?”, he asks. “See what?”, she wonders. “You’re the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen”, he enthuses.
“I am?”, she wonders. “I don’t know how anyone can resist you”, he insists. “You’re not making fun of me, are you?”, she asks. “No, if anything I think I was a bit jealous”, he asserts. “Jealous?”. “Yeah, the other guys who got access to parts of you I didn’t”, he contends. “You could have all of me, if you want”, she suggests. “No, I don’t think we should. We’ve already gone a bit too far”, he says. “Oh, you don’t want to?”, she asks.
“Nothing I want more”, he says. “Then why not?”, she wonders. “It wouldn’t be fair on you -I’m your stepfather”, he claims. “But I want to”, she says. “You think you want to”, he counters. “Well no, I think that part of me sent you that photo hoping something like this would happen”, she argues. He laughs, saying: “That’s very, very sweet. I just don’t want you to have any regrets”, he says. “But I won’t”, she insists, and leans over to kiss stepdad again. He lifts off her top, to reveal a bra covered with red hearts.
