Okay, this is the very last chapter of The Parent Visitation AND! it is also the very first fic I have ever finished, so...I'm excited about that! Thanks to everybody who reviewed, you are all awesome! I own Steve and nothing else!
"Bye, dad! Have a nice flight!" Penny leaned over to give her father a quick hug. He surprised her by tightening and elongating the embrace; something he'd never done before.
"See ya, Slugger," said Bob, smiling. "Bye, Lance."
"Bye, sir," said Leonard. The two nodded to each other and, once again, Penny was left confused. Leonard still hadn't told her anything about what had happened between him and her father, but, obviously, it was something good.
Bob picked up his bags and headed down stairs, leaving Leonard and Penny alone in the hallway.
"So, what happened with you and my dad?" Penny asked, slipping her hand into Leonard's as they entered his and Sheldon's apartment.
"Nothing," Leonard replied, closing the door behind them. "We just have a much better understanding of each other now."
Penny rolled her eyes as they sank down onto the couch, annoyed that they were keeping secrets from her.
"And we didn't have to get drunk to do it!" Leonard bragged, grinning at her.
Penny glared at him half-heartedly. "Shut up." She kept the glare up for one more moment and then her face softened. "Thank you for doing this."
Leonard gave a small smile and shrugged, looking embarrassed by the praise. Penny leaned over and captured his lips, grinning and deepening the kiss when she heard him moan. Suddenly, his hands were on her shoulders, pushing her away.
"What's wrong?" Penny asked, frowning.
"No, sorry," said Leonard sheepishly. "That just really hurts my nose."
Penny couldn't help but laugh and settled for kissing him on the cheek.
"And now you're laughing about my injury," he sighed, exaggerating his hurt. "First Bob, then you, there is just something about your family."
Penny nudged him and then rubbed his arm. Things had actually worked out. Her dad and Leonard were...well, she wasn't exactly sure what, but it all seemed good. The great thing was that they could relax now. Leonard's mother, Beverley, approved of her and Bob approved of Leonard. They could just be together.
"What have I gotten myself into?" Leonard sighed, still joking around.
"Yeah, just wait until you meet the rest of my family," Penny laughed.
"Ah, yes, your brother the chemist and your husband-shooting sister," Leonard recalled.
"Yep. Really, you should be grateful that you ended up with me, the normal, adorable one."
"Ah, you're not that normal," said Leonard shaking his head.
"But, still adorable! Still incredibly adorable!"
Alright, that's it. Hopefully, I didn't disappoint. Thank you to all the reviewers again! I really appreciate your input.
