Sorry Mum, I'm a Lesbian

Harmony lives in a Catholic household in a Church of England society, and has never found it easy. But when she discovers she's a lesbian, she has to lead several different lives at once to cover up secrets that would make her friends and family ashamed. Her already complicated life starts getting harder to handle, so she asks herself: 'Would it hurt anyone to tell her sister?' She does, and that move gets her life spinning out of control. Can Harmony pull the right strings to untangle her knotted life?

23. It was for us?!

I felt elated! I bounced off the walls all day, I talked back to the teachers unintentionally and flirted with boys (but I never forgot Cassie)?! I was so happy that my hormones changed me, I was no longer Harry and I couldn't see it. When the final bell rang on Friday I grabbed my bag and Cassie's, snatched her hand and towed her from the classroom much to the disappointment of Mr Jackson my math teacher. We were halfway down the high street when Cassie wrenched her hand from mine and stole her bag from my shoulder. I spun round and gave her a questioning look.

"What? Cassie... Whats wrong?"

She stood and scowled at me. I wasn't sure what to do. I hadn't done anything wrong had I?

"You should know whats wrong!" She half shouts back. Startled I take a few steps back, I know I should comfort her but how can I, I don't even know whats wrong.

"You're not gonna tell me that you're pregnant are you?" I joke, foolishly grinning from ear to ear.

"You're such a... a... a BITCH!" 

Whoa was not expecting that? Quickly I search my brain for things that I have done wrong... nothing.

"I have had enough," She says but calmer now, I have a feeling I am about to receive the whole cliche 'its not me its you talk'.

"Cass, can't we work this out?" I ask taking a few steps toward her slowly I put my hand on her arm she flinches away.

"I don't think we can Harmony. I thought you were better than this? Clearly I was wrong, that whole thing with Zoey, if that's who you are. You can forget the whole us thing" 

Cassie is breaking up with me? Cassie is breaking up with me...  Cassie is breaking up with me?!

Cassie Is Breaking Up With Me! 

And it hurts... I can't let the tears fall I refuse to let the bitter salt waters tumble.

"Cassie? Wait!" I call after, run towards her. "Please I can change! I'm still me! I'll say sorry to Zoey?"

"but will you tell everyone what really happened!" She retorts letting the tears slide down her cheeks. 

"I? I can't Cassie." I say. 

"That's what I thought. I'm going back to school Harry." She says turning round and walking off.

"Its the end of the day?" I yell.

"Its half one Harry its only lunch."

She leaves me standing alone I'm not going back to school and I'm not going home. I pick up my bag and head towards God knows where, finally allowing the tears to roll over my skin...
