Coming Out Straight
"I have something important to tell the both of you." the eighteen year old said to her parents, trying desperately to calm herself as she glanced over at the male standing behind her, a hand firmly but gently reaching up to squeeze her shoulder. Glad for his small, silent but immensely important show of support she turned back to her parents, taking a deep breath as she tried her best to continue on with what she planned to say. "Daniel and I... aren't just friends. We're engaged."
The second those words spilled out of her mouth the color drained from her mother's face while her other one simply smiled.
"You're... with him? I thought you were dating Anne!"
"I lied mom. Anne isn't even gay. The only reason I said that was to make you happy."
"Oh dear god. How could you do this to me, Cindy?" her brunette mother cried, burying her face in her hands. "I raised you to be gay not heterosexual!"
"I thought you of all people would understand that love is love- regardless of gender!"
"My daughter straight! Can you believe it? What will the people at the gay pride center say?!"
"This isn't about you and your stupid friends, mom. It's about me and what makes me happy."
"A girl can make you happier than any man ever could."
"No she couldn't!" Cindy snapped, taking a deep breath as she locked eyes with her mother. "Mom, I'm not gay. I never have been and never will be. I know it's hard for you to accept, but it's the way I am and I will never change."
Watching with tear filled eyes she didn't move to stop her daughter from leaving, breaking out into sobs once Cindy and that damned fiancé of hers left. "This is all your fault you know!" she cried a few minutes after the door slammed shut, glaring over at her wife who had a strangely calm look on her face.
"How is this my fault'?"
"If we hadn't sent her to that public school like you wanted this would've never happened! I told you an all girls school was the way to go!" she wailed, running out of the living room as she left her confused and slightly annoyed lover behind who didn't bother to go after her because sooner or later she'd be back and ready to apologize to Cindy and hopefully... it would be later.
