-Are you sure you don't want to do any sewing?
Oooh... that would suit you. How much is it?
They are nice, but can we go now? I'm getting tired.
Think these actually suit me. What d'you reckon?
Yeah, they're cool.
Can I get a juice, a water and two muffins, please?
All right, thank you.
Stop it! Get off her!
It's OK. He's gone now.
He's my dad!
He wasn't trying to take me away. I was trying to stop him going.
You don't have to protect him, Lily.
I'm not. Stop making out like he's done something terrible.
-He only came to say sorry!
-Maybe you got it wrong, Tracy?
-OK, OK. It just looked different from where I was standing.
We still have to let Matt and Christie know Steve Kettle's back.
-You do that, I'll contact the police.
You know your dad is not allowed to see you, Lily.
He's stopped drinking now.
He's under a restraining order. He broke the law trying to contact you.
I'm obliged to report that.
What do you reckon?
I know what I saw.
But I don't think she'd lie to me either.
Right. You contact Matt and Christie. I'll phone the police.
So I never even got the chance to talk to him.
That's a shame.
He's not going to turn up here, is he? Tee was terrified last time.
-You were scared, too!
-Why? What did he do?
He came to get me and the girls.
He was off his face!
Tried to kick the door down, then smashed a window.
It took three policemen to carry him into the van.
-You can't trust parents.
I mean, freaking you out like that, then running away.
That's not what proper dads do.
None of you have got dads! And you don't know mine.
You could have been a bit nicer.
What does "freaking you out" mean?
What are you doing?
Looking for photos of Dad.
Do you think...
maybe... it might be better if you forgot about him?
I mean, he forgot about you for long enough.
Only cos he got ill when Mum died.
He wasn't ill, Lily.
He only drank because
he had to sit there, day after day, watching Mum die.
And he couldn't do anything about it.
-Can I help you?
-Only if you know the answer to this question.
Why do people like scaring other people?
To see the surprise on their face when you do something unexpected.
-Does the person being scared like it, too?
-Mostly. When they find out
it's not real, they're so relieved, that it usually makes them laugh.
So if I jumped out at someone to scare them, would they laugh?
Only if they knew you well enough to know that you're really joking.
But joking's not the same as scaring, is it?
No. What I meant was... No.
What I meant was the person has to know you well enough to understand
that you're not really trying to scare them.
So don't jump out at strangers?
Sorry. I thought you were Liam.
I came to get this. What were you trying to do, anyway?
Get him back for scaring me.
By jumping out from behind a door?
We can do better than that.
Well, look, I wouldn't have a clue, Lily. He's your dad.
Where would you look, if your dad turned up and then did a runner?
Oh, I don't know... Pub, police station, hospital, gutter.
He's stopped drinking. He told me.
Oh, it must be true then(!)
Not you, too?
If your dad's really off the booze, he's probably going to meetings.
-They're a really big deal for people trying to get straight.
They happen all over the country.
When my dad was on the road, he'd find one to go to.
What do they do there?
Talk, I suppose. Support each other.
Did it work?
-I'm still here, aren't I?
Just cos it didn't work for my dad doesn't mean it won't for yours.
-How about this?
-No, but I'll have one.
Fancy a kick about?
Sorry, I'm busy.
I need to, um... no. All right, bye.
What are you two up to?
-And is that glitter?
-Shall we um...
12:30 and 1 o'clock.
-The rest are tonight.
Take me into town to check them out, see if my dad's there.
Well, look, you don't even know if he's still in the area.
Please! I'm sure Tracy still thinks he was trying to kidnap me.
She won't let me out by myself.
Well, she's just worried about you.
I've got to find him. If your dad turned up you'd want to speak to him.
Look, we're just going shopping, not white water rafting.
I just don't like the idea of you going back into town.
I need to get my confidence back,
otherwise I'll get a thing about going out. Gina agreed.
OK. Just be careful. Stick together.
We'll hold hands to cross the street. You're not her mum, OK?
I'll be fine.
-I'll see you later.
-Let's just go, he's not going to show.
-It's not quite half past yet.
He's always late for stuff.
What are you going to say to him, anyway?
Check he's all right. See if he's ever coming back for us.
Do you want some advice?
Write down everything you think you want to say to him.
Then stick it in a drawer and forget about it.
Is that what you did?
No. But you should. Cos this will drive you crazy.
-What you doing here?
I've got to get to a meeting.
But I want to talk to you.
I can't do this now.
Me being in town isn't about you.
I know that sounds harsh, but it's all about me trying to stay sober.
-Until I'm on top of it, I'm no use to anyone. Especially my family.
-I don't care...
-Well, I do.
Part of the cure's saying sorry to people you've hurt.
You know, you were top of my list.
-You've got a list?
-There's quite a few people I did wrong by, yeah.
I'm here for a few days to put that right. And that's all I was trying
to do this morning, you know, say... say sorry.
But I can't get caught up in your stuff, Lil...
I'm just not ready yet.
-I can't Sapph, I need some answers.
You go if you want, I'm staying.
-Do you want to play?
By the way, there's some sweets in the tin if you want some.
No, I'm all right, thanks. I'll save meself for lunch.
I'll have some.
Nice try, boys.
Lily's out, so I've nothing to do.
Good. Help me get back at Toby and Frank.
-He's leaving now, come on.
-I can't believe I'm doing this.
Uggh, don't want to touch it.
Three, two one. Just pick it up.
That's a nice sight.
Yeah, we thought we'd help you.
Oh, well thank you, girls.
Not worms, it's the snails and slugs who do the most damage, yeah?
No, put it in the bucket, nowhere near me.
Toby and Frank are going outside.
Come on, then!
-We was aiming for those two.
Thanks for taking the hit, Liam.
Why aren't you laughing?
You should laugh, now you know they weren't trying to scare you.
-I feel sick.
-So go in there and get it over with.
-Changed my mind.
No. You nagged me and dragged me here, you're not bottling out now.
-You said it was a waste of time.
-Till you talk to him, you don't know.
I don't know what to say.
He dumped you when your mum just died.
He turns up a gazillion years later, spits out a sorry and then runs -
-I'm sure you'll think of something.
-Why are you forcing me?
Because nobody forced me.
Why'd you do it?
-Why did you disappear?
-I told you, I'm only here for a couple of days.
No, when we got put in care.
OK, I know how that must have looked...
I thought you'd died. Losing Mum, then thinking I'd lost you.
I was in a bad place, all right? I had to get myself straight.
It's always about you, isn't it?
You haven't even asked about Rosie and Poppy yet.
-Where do you think they are? Do you even care?
-Course I care.
My friends were right. You are rubbish, Dad, and I hate you!
I hate you! I hate you!
-I hate you!
-That's enough. Let's go.
Sorry, who are you?
What's it to you?
-You trying to scare me?
-Why would I want to do that?
What can I do for you, Gus?
Toby and Frank told Liam that there was a tin of sweets,
so Tee opened it and a scary face with glitter popped out.
-And you're telling me this because...?
-I have a question.
Go on then, shoot.
-What's your question?
What am I supposed to shoot at?
No, no, no, not that question.
The one before that. The one about Tee and the glitter.
Oh. What made the fake tin of sweets scary?
Well, the fact that Tee was expecting it to be full of sweets,
and instead something unexpected jumped out and surprised her.
So are surprises scary?
Yeah, they can be.
Why did you do that?
I don't know.
So how was Lily today?
Did you talk about her dad showing up?
Of course we did.
-She's really unsettled by it, isn't she?
-Well, wouldn't you be?
I don't know what I'd have done if my dad came. I never even knew him.
Yeah, I can't imagine my dad suddenly showing up either.
I'm worried about her, Sapph.
We've got a good thing going, me, her and Cam.
We're a family now.
Yeah, well, I think I'll stick to flying solo.
Family ties... it's not worth the risk.
Oh, that was good.
Good one, Tee.
Come on, Tee.
Um, I'm bored. I don't want to play any more.
Me neither. Do you mind?
-Where you going?
-Why don't you come and sit with us?
I've got to ask you a question.
What's the difference between manga and anime?
Manga is a Japanese comic book...
-Oh, here, Gina. Take a seat.
-Oh, thank you, Toby.
-And anime is like animation or cartoon.
-So you could
probably say that manga
is like anime in certain ways, but that's only because...
Had an accident, have we?
-I wasn't even here!
Who soaked Gina?
Oh, I'm sorry.
Liam, go and turn it off.
KNOCK ON DOOR
I know we should have fruit,
but apples never really do it for me when I've got the miseries.
Can I have a look?
You look like you're having a good time.
-I'm sorry I didn't believe you about your dad this morning.
It's just I didn't know who he was. I thought he was going to hurt you.
I wasn't lying. I was really trying to stop him from going.
I know you wouldn't lie to me.
I just got a fright, that's all.
I couldn't bear it if anything happened to you.
-I've seen him again.
-We were out and I spotted him,
so me and Sapph followed him back to his B and B.
-And she let you?
-Told her I'd do it whether she came or not.
I made her promise not to tell, and you can't either.
I'm not sure, Lily.
-Have you seen Lily?
-Yeah, she went out.
-Do you want some toast?
-No, I've got to get going. Have you seen this?
-Shame it went wrong for her.
-Yeah, it was all right till he showed up.
No, I meant for Lily and her family.
Look, I know how much she means to you, Tracy.
But you've got to focus on what's best for Lily,
-and this isn't about us.
Course you do.
I know you're in there, Dad.
I don't hate you.
And I get it if you don't want to see me again.
I won't come back.
I was up the best part of the night trying to not drink that.
That was my fault, wasn't it?
No, nobody makes me drink but me.
And you didn't.
That's for you.
I don't need new clothes.
Yeah, you do.
What do I owe you?
The council give me a clothing allowance.
Why don't you have a shower, then we can get breakfast?
I don't know, I shouldn't.
Look, Dad, I know you're not sticking around.
But it won't kill you to share a fry-up.
Gina, wouldn't it be great to get our own back?
-Nobody's asking you.
-We're supposed to be adults.
And we are. But we're going to be scary ones.
How much is gone?
I told you - we just went shopping.
And she told me she'd seen her dad.
Lily's taken some money from Cam.
I'm pretty sure she's given it to her dad. Any ideas?
Why did I bother? I should've known I'd end up on the wrong side.
-Huh? I feel a bit more human.
-You look it, too!
All right, cheeky.
You always did know how to cheer me up, didn't ya?
I should be making sure you're all right, that's my job as a dad.
A right mess I've made of it, haven't I? Sorry, Lil.
I promise I'll make it up to you, and Rosie and Poppy.
Why would you want to live with me?
Because you're my dad.
Lily, you shouldn't be here.
-You shouldn't have stolen from Cam.
-You said that was yours.
She did it for you. We're leaving.
And you should too, because I'm going to have to call
the police and tell them you're here.
-It's my job.
-I don't want any trouble.
And you're not going to get any as long as you leave.
Let's go home.
-You should go with her.
-Dad, I don't want to.
-I want to go with you.
-But it's not going to happen like this.
If this is what you really want, let's do it properly.
Is that why you're here, to get Lily back?
You should have told me Lily had seen her dad.
And so should you.
-I thought he'd gone.
-He has now.
Look, it was me or the police.
-I had to.
-Tracy and I are just trying to do what's best for you.
But he's my dad,
my real family.
You can't blame me for trying to get back with him.
I get it, Lily. I'd have done the same thing.
You don't get it, either of you.
He's going to start drinking again, and I'll never get him back.
So how's the family situation?
-Well, do you see my point about family ties?
So why did you get involved with it all, then?
-Maybe I'd like to see a happy ending.
-Think we all would.
Lily? I've made some lunch.
You need me, Dad, and I need you.
Please let me come with you.
-I won't be any trouble, I promise.
-I'm not ready yet.
We're family, Dad. We're meant to be together.
I can cook and I can clean
until you get better.
And stop saying no,
because I'll keep running away until you say yes.
-all right, I'll come and get you.
Can you get to the community centre?
Yep. I'll meet you there.
Love you, Dad.
Love you, too.
Are you all right, Lily?
How did you know I was here?
Your dad told us.
Where is he?
He's not coming.
-I know I'm not supposed to be here, but...
-Why did you tell them?
Because it was the right thing to do.
And that's how I'm going to do everything from now on.
I want you back, Lil.
When I apply to get the restraining order lifted and try to get custody,
will you support me?
Will you give us any reason not to?
If you're talking about the booze, then no. I've given it up.
I'm keeping it that way.
It's time I faced up to my responsibilities.
Of course we'll support you.
It won't be instant, Lily. These things take time.
I don't care.
I've got my dad.
Don't cry, Tracy.
-You'll always be like a big sister to me.
But he's your dad, your real family.
That's more important than anything.
-See you soon.
We've lost her, Cam.
We never really had her. We're just giving her back.
-Probably snail pie for you, Liam.
