Chapter 3.15: Why

I looked over at her intently. Was she finally going to tell me what their crazy fight was about?


“Umm…” She looked away. “I don’t know if I should tell you.”


“Well, you’re here, so you must have thought you should. Possibly…” I didn’t want to push her, and I wasn’t involved in their fight…and I didn’t want to be. “But look, I don’t want to get involved.”

She sighed. “You are already involved. It’s about you.”

Wait, what? I would have never thought it was about me. “Wait, it’s not about mama’s death?”

Her eyes widened. “What? No! No, it isn’t.”

“Then what?” I remembered her words, ‘it’s about you’. “What about me? I know that I’m no good at being ‘the adult’…”


“It’s not that, it’s-” I couldn’t make out her next words.


“It’s cause you’re gay!” She blurted out.


I stood there in shock. I couldn’t believe what I just heard. “It’s because I’m a lesbian?” I whispered to myself.

“I’m sorry…I-”

“It’s ok. I knew things like this would happen…but I didn’t think in my family. You are still fine with it, right?”

“Of course!”

“You fought our brother over me?”

“I couldn’t not! He was just so – ugh. The things coming out of his mouth deserved punching!”


I didn’t really know if I wanted to hear the answer to the question I was about to ask. “What did he say?”

“Do you really want to know?”

“I don’t know, Lexie. But I think I have to.”

“He said you make our family less perfect. That after our weird childhood why couldn’t everything be normal, typical. I almost told him to get out right then. I knew he was somewhat of a perfectionist, but WATCHER. Saying your lesbian sister makes your family less perfect…just…”


“Lexie. I’m glad you told me…”

“You don’t have to pretend you’re ok, especially after hearing that.”

“I know.”


A/N: I do not in any way agree with what Mason thinks, just so you know.

  1. Ohmygod! MASON IS THE WORST! Addie is amazing! She makes the family SO much better, if not even MORE perfect! Mason is the one making the family “less perfect”! I can’t believe him! I’m so glad Lexie told Addie what was going on though. It must have been somewhat a relief to know they weren’t fighting about their mom’s death. BTW, I can’t wait for Lexie to kick Mason out! He does not deserve to live with Addie and/or Lexie! ❤️🙌🏽💕

    1. You said everything right! ❤️ I’m glad Lexie told her what was going on too…even if it wasn’t good. 🙂 I can’t wait to see how it’s handled, though! 😉


  2. And to think, the last chapter I was sitting here thinking “Wow, Mason is a cutie!” 😡
    Good job throwing in some conflict here ❤ I wish everything could be perfect and no one would ever have issues with someone's sexuality, but unfortunately that's not the world we live in yet; this situation with the Clemonte's is very realistic!
