The loud cheering fills my ears, stripes proudly wave in the air, blocking my sight.
Today is the day - the day I come out to my parents.
Why can’t I find them?
Taking a deep breath, I walk over to my parents. My hands start to sweat; I can feel the pounding in my chest; I squeeze my eyes shut and
I am lost in a sea of people.
“Mom, Dad, I’m gay.”
I close my eyes, wishing I could find them.
I open my eyes, they stare at me. My mom gives me a smile,
“Is there something wrong, Jacob?” she asks.
My eyes widen at the sound of a familiar laugh.
Crap. I mentally slap myself, I didn’t tell them, another fail.
“Jacob, how about become a man for once and tell us what’s wrong.”
I look around more, still not seeing my family, I feel the fear pulsing in my chest.
my dad started gruffling at me, clenching my hands
The stripes disappear, the crowd of people clear.
“I’M GAY, OK?!”
I scream, leaving the house as I saw their horrid faces.
And at last, I see my future fiance with my friends, I smile.
