Chapter 3.11: Consequences

I knew things at school would be different. I did. Really. On one hand, I was over the moon for my new relationship, but on the other one, I was no longer just like everyone else. It sounds stupid because nobody is the same but…most girls had at least one thing in common, that they thought boys were hot…and I just don’t have that connection, believe me, the Lexie thing has reminded me enough. I have no idea what it feels like to fall in love with a boy. And I could deal with the stares, and the gossip, because I knew it would happen, but what I wasn’t ready for was my friends reactions.


“Addie, wait. Why didn’t you tell us first?” Zoe asked.

“I-”

“Yeah, don’t you trust us?” Raini asked.

This was starting to feel like less of a normal conversation and more like some sort of ambush.

“You guys are my friends. Of course I trust you!” I sighed. “Look, I just didn’t want anyone to know.”

“We’re not gay-haters, Addie. Ok, so what if some people are? But we aren’t and we are your friends.” Lyric said.

“I know. Guys, I’m sorry.” And this is when I finally realized something. The real reason I didn’t want my friends to know, at first…and still. “I thought I’d be left out, ok? Of the important conversations about crushes and boys and stuff, just cause I was a lesbian. I didn’t want to lose that. Because while I don’t get what you see in boys…I can still talk about them.” I looked at them, wondering what they’d say. And they laughed, a good laugh…and we all cried a little…

Zoe laughed faintly while tears were still running down her cheeks.  “No need to get all cheesy, ok?!”

“Yeah.” I smiled. “And I’m really sorry. You guys are my friends. I should have told you.”

“You didn’t need to.” Lyric said softly. “And I should have told you guys that Charlie finally asked me out…”

We all eyed each other. “He did!?”

“Yep.”

I smiled. “We’re good now, right?”

“Yeah. Of course!” Raini said.

  3. Ah those conversations about boys and dating. Yup. Not being able to participate does def. make you stick out a bit. But I’m glad her friends all know now and that they’ll keep treating her normally. (I hope).

  4. “We’re not gay-haters, Addie.” Lol, I smiled at the way she put it. Addie is so lucky, again, that her friends are just as accepting!
