Pit. Pat. Pit. Pat. Rain started to drizzle over the cement in front of the school. You simply put your hood up and stepped our of the car. Tessa was worth it. Tessa was worth anything. You scan your surroundings, looking for her.
Where was she? She told you to meet her after school....
You finally spotted her standing infront of the school. Running across the parking lot you stop before her, taking the time to admire the way the dimly tinted blue light made her look.
"Hey Tess, I..." You pause as you notice tears running down her face. "Tess?"
She looks at you and sobs. Reaching out, you bring her in close for a hug. She squirms out of it, looking up at you.
"I'm s-sorry." She hiccups looking away.
Then, softly, ever so softly, she whispers the three words that changed their lives.
"But I'm gay."
