Chapter 23: Valerie: Forgiving
I had decided to forgive Drake. I guess it was just a matter of misunderstanding.
But first, I had to find him.
"Hey, Valerie," Johnny said from behind, wrapping his arm around me. "Guess what?"
"What?" He didn't say anything for a second.
Then he told me, "I came out to my parents last night." I gasped and stopped walking.
"Whoa, what?" I yelled in shock. He shushed me. "You did what?" I asked more quietly.
"Yep. Told them I'm gay."
"Wow. How'd they take it?" He shrugged.
"I don't know."
"What do you mean, you don't know?"
"Exactly that. At first, I locked myself in my room, but they kept trying to get me to open the door. So I slept over at Eddie's place." I gasped again.
"You stayed over? For the whole night?" I wiggled my eyebrows. "Was it fun?"
He blushed and rolled his eyes. "Get your mind out of the gutter! Nothing happened."
"I mean, nothing much."
"What?" He ignored me.
"Look: your boyfriend." I saw Drake walk past, avoiding eye contact. "You want me to talk to him?"
"No, it's fine. But thanks." I started to follow him. "See you later."
"Drake!" I called. He turned around.
"Hey. What's up?" He seemed normal.
It's been. So. LONG! I'm SO sorry! I really wanted to update, and even now I'm being rushed, which is why this is such a short chapter.
