“I never wanted this to happen; I didn’t want anyone to know,” his hands entwine with mine. “But you… you were persistent. I have to say, it annoyed the fuck out of me.” 
 I had to smile at that, but his face was blank – serious.  
“I just wish…” he paused before a tear rolled down his cheek. “I just wish I could hear you say it. I wish I could be sure you mean it by the tone of your voice.” 
 The struggle to hold back tears was complicated.
 “You don’t have to hear me say it to know that I mean it,” I whisper, looking into his eyes.  “Marcus,” I wipe the tear off of his cheek and he looks into my eyes. “I love you.”  
And there’s a long silence.  And I can feel my heart pounding slowly against my chest.  And I lean in to kiss his soft, pink lips.  And he moves back.  And he walks away.

OOOOH. HE IS THE DEAF ONE. I THOUGHT SHE WAS THE DEAF ONE, SO I WAS CONFUSED AS TO WHY SHE WAS TALKING.
I also never had the time, energy, and patience for it when I was in high school. But for different reasons. Mainly, boys were pricks and I had a lady friend with whom I was going steady.

If I were deaf, I could never travel. Even if sign language were standardized, I'd be too nervous to talk to foreigners because I couldn't understand their accents.
