Unwanted but much needed attention

Angel Investigations 6pm; Connor is preparing to go out

Connor was lacing up his boots ready to leave the hotel when Angel
comes out of his office and waylays him at the door. "Where do you
think you are going, young man?"

Connor didn't even turn around to reply; "Out, not that's its any of
your business"

Angel replies; "Oh really… why is that Connor?"

Connor turns and with a hate filled look says "You're not my father!
And I don't have to answer to you."

" I'm not your father hmm… Well I do have custody of you and I want to
know where you're going to be" Angel said.

Angel crosses his hands over his chest. "What are the rules about
leaving the hotel Connor Stephen?"

"God, do we have to go through this every time I want to leave this
hell hole?" Connor stated sullenly. "I'm going out, okay?"

"Out where?" Angel said.

"I was gonna go to the mall and chill with some friends, then I was
gonna go to the skate park, and if there is any time between that and
my ridiculous curfew I'm going to the arcade. Anymore questions?" said
Connor in a bored tone of voice.

"That sounds like a busy plan of action Connor, but you haven't
answered my previous question; what are the rules about leaving the
hotel?" said Angel sternly

"Whatever man, what's your problem?"

"My problem? My Problem is your attitude young man!" Angel said in an
agitated voice.

"It seems to me that you have a hard time answering that first
question, for curiosity sake when was the last time you picked up a book?

"It's funny you should ask that Angel, last week when you grounded me,
I was so bored I picked up a book called the Watchers Diary, yeah I
learned all about you. How many people did you kill exactly? I kinda
lost track.", Said Connor in a sarcastic tone of voice.

"What I did, or did not do has nothing to do with you, It doesn't
excuse your behavior at all."

"Yes it does! You are such a hypocrite, always lecturing me about
right and wrong, good and bad; all that fight the good fight pile of
crap you're always heaping on me, not anymore" Connor turns to leave

He fires his last salvo at Angel "Oh I almost forgot, Its career day
at school next week, I thought you could come in and tell everyone how
great it is to be a vampire, Are we done here?"

"No, you're not going out, you can take your disrespectful butt
upstairs before I decide that you need an attitude adjustment" Angel said.

"What?! You've got to be kidding me"

"Oh, I kid you not, First and foremost you go nowhere without
informing me where you will be, who you will be with and what time you
expect to be back" Connor got an angry look on his face. "Secondly,
going out is a privilege not a right, and you have demonstrated to me
with your attitude and your basic regard to the rules that you don't
deserve that privilege"

"Obviously being grounded last week taught you nothing about your
attitude. You better head on upstairs before I take a more hands on
approach. You won't enjoy the consequences if I have to tell you
again." said Angel.

"This is so unfair that I'm stuck with you for a guardian, I hate my
life!" Connor stomps up the stairs muttering under his breath the
whole way.

Angel shrugs his shoulders smirking "Oh and Connor, If I find out
you've left your room or the hotel after I told you no, I will blister
your backside"

Connor didn't turn around or respond he continued his way to his room.
