And then Ana wakes up.
It’s graduation day!
Kate asks Ana how dinner went. Ana says they talked “about lots of things,” one of them was how fussy he is about food.
Ana meets up with her (step) dad at Graduation. She overhears girls gossiping about Christian Grey and throws in her two cents by saying she thinks he’s gay! Ha!
The chancellor speaks.
Mr. Grey speaks about solving world hunger. Start with Ana first – that chick needs a hamburger.
Mr. Grey passes out diplomas and then wants to meet Ana’s stepfather. The two hit it off.
Small talk ensues. Blah, blah, blah!
But out of all this, Ana agrees to the contract – soft limits, of course!
And the chapter closes with texts and emails from Christian. She wants to see him. He agrees to come over. And what does she do next? She wraps up those books he gave her, intending to give them back, with a note that is a quote from the book:
“I agree to the conditions, Angel; because you know best what my punishment ought to be; only – only – don’t make it more than I can bear.”
Well, isn’t that special!
For me, this was a really boring space filler chapter. Sure, we get to meet the dad, but he’s like any cookie cutter polo clad golf playing dad you’ve seen on any sitcom or in any teen movie. The only element that really sticks out is how possessive Grey becomes and how smitten he is with her. He turns into the needy bitch by the end of the chapter. But still, I can’t get the image of him in those Levis out of my head! Grrrr! I hope the rumors are true!
