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?


13. Verity


"What the fuck is going on here!?" Verity shouted.

I jumped at her voice, she had been crying, her cheeks were red with salty tears. Me and Cassie turned round looking quite ashamed of ourselves. Verity looked from me to Cassie then, Cassie to me. I was trying to read her emotions, she was angry, upset, but, there was something else mixed in, happiness? Relief? 

"You're making out on mums sofa, with a girl?!".

I nodded putting my arm around my shoulder. To my surprise, Verity said nothing as Cassie walked towards her. Hips swaying, confident and strong.

"Do you have a problem with Homosexuals?" She asked politely, but forceful.

Verity said nothing. Absolutely nothing.

"Well?" Cassie asked. "Answer me! Do you have a problem with homosexuals?!" 

I was amazed at Cassie, not even my dad would dare talk to Verity like that! I stared open mouthed as Cassie tapped her foot and awaited Verity's answer. Verity looked at me then at Cassie, before stammering her answer.

"I... I don't have a problem with homosexuals."

"Exactly, so...wait what?"

I laughed at Cassie. She was as bewildered by Verity's answer as I was.

"What did you say?!" I asked standing up and sliding an arm around Cassie's waist.

"I said I don't have a problem with Homosexuals, you muppet, clean out your ears."

Me and Cassie stared at each other in amazement but, one question was still lingering in our minds:

"Why?" We asked simultaneously.

Verity chewed on the side of her lip, then looked at the floor, she didn't want to say why.

"Oh. My. God.!" I shouted, staring at Verity in pure shock.

"Verity, are you a lesbian too?" I asked trying my hardest to keep the joy out of my voice. If my sister was a lesbian, I wouldn't be on my own! If Verity didn't mind homosexuals, I could talk to her about everything!

"But wait," I thought. "she has a boyfriend?"

"You can't be a Lesbian,  you're going out with Jack." I pointed out. Verity laughed. Me and Cassie stared in amazement.

"Jack is short for Jacqueline! I hope that answers your question." I smiled as verity spoke.

"Yes Harmony, I am a Lesbian."

I could only think of one thing for the rest of the day:

"I'm not on my own!"
