Chapter Nineteen: My family hates me

8K 213 24

"Arrow it's going to be ok," Colin put his hand on my shoulder. I looked at him and sighed. How could he say everything is going to be ok? Did he just experience what I had just experienced or is he in denial of it all. I let the tears slip down my face hitting the sink. How could I go back out there after what my sister had just done?

"No it isn't. You don't understand Colin. Now it's out it won't take long time to spread and soon somehow my parents will find out. They aren't going to let you stay with me after that. They are going to hate me. They probably even kick me out if they react in the same way as my sister has," I tried to explain to him in a soft voice but I clearly failed miserably when Colin looked at me weirdly.

"Arrow, just take a deep breath," he said to me as he took my hand and looked me in the eye.

"I'm sorry this isn't your fault," I said softly to him.

"Caz knows right?" asked Colin which I answered with a simple nod. "She will explain it to Lilly and Paul and they will understand. They are your friends," he said to me which made me smile a little.

"Maybe, maybe not but I can't go back out there Colin I can't do this," I said to him.

"Arrow you can't hide in here all day," he said to me firmly still looking me in the eye.

"Colin did you see the way they looked at us? They stared at us, threatened us and chased us in here. Did you forget that?"

"No I didn't but we can't let them get to us. We should be proud of being together and accepting we are gay. Do you accept it Arrow or do you regret being with me?" he asked me.

"Colin, don't put it like that," I said looking away from him.

"Arrow, please tell me. Do you regret being with me? Are you ashamed of being gay? I need to know because I love you Arrow but if you regret being with me what am I here for?" he asked.

I looked him right in the eye. I could never regret being with Colin. He caught my eye the first time I saw him and kept me on him ever since. I'm not going to throw it away for anyone not even for my friends or for people at school.

"I would never regret being with you, not ever. I'm not ashamed," I said to him as I leaned into him and kissed him on the lips. I pulled away and looked over at the door.

"Now or never boyfriend," grinned Colin as he put his hand out for me to take. I took his hand and we slowly approached the door to the exit of the boy's toilets. Colin pushed it open and we stepped out to find the corridor empty but to find the headmaster looking at us both.

"I'm sorry about what happened. Do you too want to come to my office?" he asked us. We both nodded and he led us to his office.

"I thought it maybe be best for you to go home for today just while we sort this all out. I want to tell you both something though," he said as he hinted for us to sit down in front of his desk.

"What is that sir?" I asked.

"I know what you two are going through. I'm currently in a relationship with a man myself. I have to admit no one knows of this in this school apart from the teachers but when I was your age I got this hassle too. It will calm down and everything will be fine," he said to both of us.


"Why do you think your parents have come home?" asked Colin as he drove down the road towards my house. My sister was home too. Isn't that fantastic?!

"What do you think Colin? The headmaster told my parents that I'm gay or my sister has. As soon as I walk through that door I'm screwed. I might as well not even walk through that door. Colin, could we maybe go anywhere but home?" I begged him.
