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?

7. When Things Went a Bit Better

I called Cassie on the phone that evening. She asked me why I was crying back when we first met - which already seemed like ten years ago - and after some thinking I reluctantly told her. I told her not to make fun of me, not to laugh and not to tell anyone. There was in silence for about half a minute and she muttered something quietly to me.

"Me too."

"Wow!" I mentally gave her a massive hug. "I get the shit end of life though! My parents are Catholics and homophobic, if I tell them, I don't know what will happen! So I have kept it to myself for about a year now." She sounded shocked!

"That's so harsh! My parents know and they said they are happy for me as long as I'm happy." She replied.

"I love your parents already and I havn't even met them!"

"You can come over for tea tomorrow if you want!"

"I have church." I heard her voice (and maybe her face?) drop. "But, I can do Thursday!"

"Okay, so can I!" We carried on chatting for another 20 minutes when my Mum called me for dinner. I was glad to have found a new friendship so soon after losing two and I felt so happy to be loved (I didn't know if it was in a friendly way or not) by someone else. Unfortunately, I didn't think my parents would feel the same way about that. I frowned as I locked my phone and jumped down the stairs.
