"Dad," Andy asked directly, "If the police asked you to dress up in women's clothing to catch a rapist who had hurt your sister, what would you do?"
His dad sighed slightly and rubbed his big strong hands together. Then he looked Andy in the eyes before giving an honest answer. "It's a tough call, Andy, and one that only you yourself can make - but do what you think is the right thing. There's a bad man out there - one who has left your sister in a coma and could hurt others. And let's be honest with ourselves, in a worst case scenario, Andrea could yet die and you could be sent down for the foolish things you have involved yourself in with that set o' punks you hang around with! Can you imagine how devastated your Ma would be, losing both of her children?" How would commit himself no more than that.
Andy paused again before replying. "Dad, would you be ashamed of me, If I did dress up like Andrea?" He asked with tears forming in his eyes.
"No son, I would be immensely proud of you," his dad replied honestly, putting his arm around him and pulling Andy in for a loving hug.
