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?


21. Troublesome Trio

"Isla!! We had an agreement!!! You can so forget that new I-pod!" Verity yelled.

"Wait WHAT?! You just told mum and dad I had a boyfriend?! What the fuck!?" I shouted burying whatever agreement she had with Isla under my own voice.

"OMG you swore I am sooooo telling mum... MUU..." 

She didn't get to finish her sentence as both Verity and I placed our hands over her mouth. Then we, in our own terms had a conversation with our eyes, Wondering whether to suffocate Isla or let her live.. unfortunately the Angel on my left shoulder won the battle and we removed our hands. 

"Save it." Verity says as Isla opens her mouth.

"Yeah, you swear all the time. Anyhow whats the deal you two had?" 

The room was filled instantly with a guilty silence. This agreement wasn't anything to do with either of them - oh no- this agreement was to do with me. After a few moments of unbearable silence Isla expertly cut the silence with a newly sharpened blade.

"Verity agreed that she wouldn't tell mum and dad about my private life if I didn't tell them about yours... and then I asked for and I-pod." She said perking up at the end of the sentence.

I glanced at Verity, she shook her head knowing my question.

Isla doesn't know about Verity.

I could feel the hatred growing inside me, I was in the most dangerous situation here, Verity everybody still believed to be straight and Isla's (not so) innocent social life was never going to be spread around because she was so good at blackmail. Then there is me I am stranded in the middle of other peoples problems amid my own; now I have to miraculously provide a boyfriend whilst not annoying Isla (incase she decides to tell) and without getting detected - otherwise I can forget my family 'cause they sure as hell will forget me... 


Sod life.
