I am who I am.
Transgender!Dean moves to a new town. Yet again. She hates moving all the time because once she gets to being accepted, father dearest gets transferred again. John is constantly apologizing to Deanna about having to move, but with Mary's unfortunate passing, Deanna can't stay in any place definitive. She's waited so long to finally become how she sees herself; female. Sure, she's got a more masculine body, but with surgical help, she can be more feminine.
In this new town, she meets a boy. She doesn't meet him in school, because, well, it's summer. He's a very sweet boy who doesn't know her secret. She's scared to see how he'll react. She's scared to get attached because, what if she has to move again?
