I found out you were gay. You once asked me what changed. What it was that finally made me notice you. I found out you were gay. That's what changed.

It was finding out you swung my way. I found out I actually had a shot with you. I don't know what made me wonder what we'd be like as a couple. I don't know what made me go from being…completely straight to…not. I don't know how any of that happened. All I know is that I found out you were gay. I found that out and everything changed.

It's not that we weren't close before. I'd always liked you. Just, as friends. I'd never thought about you as anything else before. But I thought I was straight. And I thought you were straight.

I'd always thought you were sweet. You are, one of the sweetest people that I know. I'd always thought you were smart, smarter than I am for sure. I'd always thought you were too good to be my friend, and you are.

Despite thinking all those things, I'd never thought of you as more than a friend. Then you came out. Then I started thinking. Then I noticed the other things.

You're cute. Like, really cute. And your smile is amazing. It's just so perfect. You don't show it often, but I love it when you do. Your whole face lights up when you smile.

Your laugh. The sound of it brings a smile to my face, every time I hear it. I don't hear it often enough, you don't laugh often enough. But it's great.

You know me. You know me so well. You know all my little flaws and choose to accept them.

But all those things were there beforehand. They didn't change. I just hadn't noticed them.

So when you ask me what changed, it was that. I found out you were gay. I found that out and then all the little things fell into place.

That's how we got here, to us. Being a couple. Facing the world and standing proud. It was one simple thing. I found out you were gay.


Experimenting in this writing style. I could have created two characters and made this an conversation, but I like this best as is, so here we are.
