Emmy was just your average student at a middle/high school. She was just starting out her 8th grade year. She had a hidden secret that no one knew about...

25. 8th Grade Graduation

I walked onto the stage nervously. I was in front of the whole school right now, I was practically pissing myself. Since I got the highest GPA in the whole 8th grade, I got to say a little speech.

I looked down to Danny who was in the first row. She blew me a kiss and I smiled a little. "My name, is Emmy..and uhm.." The microphone whined at my intro. I rolled my eyes and sighed. "So you wanna know what was so great about 8th grade? My girlfriend. Danny. She helped me through everything. I used to self harm. I was bulimic and anorexic. You know who laughed at me? You. You all did. My own family laughed. You can think what you want. Call me a fag, a dyke. Whatever arsenal of names you have. Being a teenager..isn't easy. At all. You high schoolers seem to not remember what your experience was like going through your first few years of it. Falling in love, going through puberty, it's all a scary rollercoaster. But we, all of the 8th graders sitting before me, we made it guys. We will be the surviving class of 2018."

Danny stood up and she had painted her face the colors of the gay pride flag. She ran on the stage and kissed me. kept my arm around her waist for the rest of my speech. Everyone started clapping hard as we kissed and there were tons of cheers from the crowd. "My brother, the one you all think is so great, he made me do his homework for a month and a half, while I fell apart. He called me names because of my sexual orientation. But..I love him..because he is family. And although you all cheer for us to show our pride for who we are, he sits over in the juniors wing and boos at us."

I shortly finished my speech and sat down beside Danny so we could be called up for our "diplomas".
