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.

 

                                                        I’m home.
