The Secret (GirlxGirl, Gay, Lesbian Stories)
"We can't Zeid! You can't! You shouldn't!"
That , I guess, was the most painful thing I ever heard. But I couldn't let her go. Not now. Never.
"Of course, I can and you know that. Stop it. Okay? I have to go!" Gab said with all confidence. But I can see pain in her eyes.
I grabbed her wrist just before she could turn her back from me.
"You need to tell me why. You can't just leave like nothing just happened and that everything is a lie!"
"Everything is a lie, Zeid! Everything!" She shouted at me now.
I can't hold back the tears anymore. I dont want her to see me weak. But her words were like sharp knife stabbed to my helpless heart. Helpless. I couldn't undo what happened. And if I could, I wouldn't.
"Oh, yah? Now, look at me in the eyes and tell me that you don't love me, that you never loved me even for a freakin' second, and that you never dreamed spending the rest of the days with me!" I dared her.
She stared at me like trapping me in my own well, afraid that I was wrong this entire time that she felt the same and that hope of her and me will be gone as yesterdays passed.
She looked down and softly said, "Please, Zeid. Just let go of me."
"Answer me, damn it!" I was sorry I cursed but I couldn't take it any longer. "Look at me, please. Look at me, Gab! Answer me!"
"Yes! I do!" She looked at me fiercely. I want to wipe the tears on her cheeks but my knees were getting weak. I slowly let go of her.
"Yes, I do love you, Zeid, so much. But we can't! Your family doesn't know and this is going to be a suicide for me. It's your family against mine and I couldn't put them at stake. We can't win this fight Zeid. We just can't!"
"Yes we can. I'll never let you go. Never." I hugged her so tight letting her realize that I mean it and that this is just the beginning. I know she's been doing all the fights. But now, I'm ready. I need her to feel that.
"If you, do. Come with me, then."
