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?


8. Telling My Sister


I thought about tellling her for at least a week, originally because I was getting closer and closer to the once beautiful Zoey, but now for Cassie. I really thought I had the chance tonight as this was one of the few nights she wasn't going some place with her mates or her boyfriend (See? She's normal.) After dinner, I headed up to Verity's room.

Verity was on the computer doing some revision for her GCSEs. She turned to face me and smiled.

"Hey sis, what's up?" I sighed, and I told her.

"Verity, I think I am a lesbian." She looked at me in astonishment and didn't say a word.

"I know I shouldn't, Verity, but I can't help who I love! I don't know what to do and I can't tell Mum and Dad or Isla so please understand me and..." I started to speak faster and faster and Verity put a hand over my mouth.

"Harmony, at this age, people generally feel confused about who they like and love!" I tried to argue but Verity's hand was like tape. "Whatever you do, don't tell Mum and Dad you muppet!" She laughed and carried on. "They'll take it the wrong way and think that you'll be forever, but you won't Harmz. Remember, it's just your hormones going crazy." She smiled and lifted her hand. I knew that wasn't the case with me, I was genuinely a lesbian and it wasn't my hormones playing up, but I knew better than to argue with Verity. I nodded, thanked her, and left her room.

The amount of people that knew my secret rolled up to three.

Me, Cassie and Verity.
