Pretty mouth and green my eyes

I read your text and smile.
This sudden swell of happiness, slowly deflates as father walks into the room, rather- into the unexplained bubble of happiness that had just settled inside.

I struggle to keep a straight face.
 "What's the matter?" He asks.
"Nothing" I reply and exit the room.

It's nothing. Nothing right now. I don't know what it will be, though.
