Previously in Finding Chance
He kissed me. I slid my tongue in his mouth, making out with him passionately.
He broke our kiss and looked at me. "I should get back to my room before they realize something is up."
He kissed me again. I walked over to my door and stuck me head out and peeked down the hallway. The girls were still talking to Jenna and Henry.
I came back in my room.
"Coast is clear." I said as I kissed him.
He kissed me back. "Good night. I love you."
I slept better that Friday night that I had since the previously Sunday night before the big drama with my mom and Mitch left. My mom had no idea that Mitch was here. I really didn't even know that he was here until I saw him.
My mom told me over and over how she hated Mitch and he was trying to turn me into a fag and it was going against God's will. I just finally had enough and that's when I went over to Jason's and tried to take my life. I was happy that I didn't succeed then I wouldn't have gotten to come see Mitch and make things better.
On the weekends we have the privileges of sleeping in. Not really my sleeping in. We get to get up at seven thirty instead of six thirty.
The weekend staff wasn't very nice as everyone had said. There was a nurse named Janet. She was in her early twenties recently graduated from what I was told. She wore a pair of tight pink scrubs that were so tight I didn't see how he could even breathe wearing them. She had long blond hair and green eyes.
The two Psych Techs working that day I had learned were name Kyle and Mindy. They both looked like they couldn't be much older than myself. Kyle was about six foot even, with light brown hair that he wore spiked up and green eyes. Mindy had dark brown hair stood about five four and crystal blue eyes.
The moment Kyle had come to my door and woke me up I was dreading that day. Exactly five and a half hours after I woke up, I would be receiving a visit from my mom and sister which I really didn't want to do. They would see that Mitch was there and there would be no telling what they would do.
After I woke up, I took my shower and headed to the day area. I saw Mitch sitting in the same chair he was sitting in as yesterday so I walked over and sat next to him.
I smiled at him and he smiled back at me.
"So how does it feel to take my virginity?" Mitch whispered to me with a huge grin on his face.
"The best feeling ever." I replied.
I didn't smile back or anything. I was in sort of a daze just sitting there staring at nothing.
"You ok babe?" Mitch asked noticing how I was asking.
"My mom and sister are coming today. I'm not looking forward to it at all."
"I'm sorry." Mitch told me. "I am actually looking forward to visitation. Liz and Ginnifer are coming to see me."
"Lucky you." I muttered.
"Are you going to tell your mom that we are back together?" He asked.
I didn't get a chance to answer his question. I knew what I was going to do, but was interrupted by Kyle and Mindy. Mindy sat down in one of the two chairs in the front of the group. Kyle sat next to her.
"Well, since everyone is out here how about we start group." He said looking around. "I see we have a few new faces. How about we go around the room and introduce ourselves, and tell something about yourselves. I will start. I am Kyle and I work here during the weekends and go to college full time."
Mindy looked at us. "I'm Mindy. I'm twenty three and have one year left and will be graduating with a degree in social work."
Next was the girls' side. I had noticed how the girls sat on one side of the room and the boys sat on the other. There were however a few more girls than guys.
"I'm Elizabeth. I ran away from my alcoholic mother and ended up here." The first girl had said.
"I'm Colleen." Came the next girl. "I'm sixteen."
"I'm Debra. I am here because I got into a fight with my little sister and my parents are scared of me." I just noticed that Debra was a rather large girl. Not fat, just really buff and I could see her trying to beat up her sister.
"I'm Meagan. I'm here because I tried to kill myself."
"I'm Ellen. I am here because my mom sent me here after I told her that I was a lesbian."
I could picture Ellen as a lesbian. She looked like a guy. Short light brown hair, cut almost like mine. She wore loose clothes that didn't reveal any of her girl curves.
I found this kind of interesting. I had thought that Mitch and I were the only homos there. I felt a relief actually.
"I'm Heather. I came here because I ran away from home seven times."
"I'm Darla. I am here because I killed my dog and my cats."
She looked around the room with a wicked grin on her face.
"I'm Miranda. I don't want to say anything about myself. I don't want to be here really."
Next it was the guys turns.
"I'm Kevin." Said the first guy in the row of guys. He was the most attractive of the guys other than Mitch of course. He was medium build, sandy blonde hair, blue eyes and a nice golden tan. "I um- I am here because I got into a um fight at school."
He said this very quickly, and then looked down at the floor.
"I'm Mark and my mom thought it would be good for me to come here because I sacrificed my dog to the dear Lord."
I thought he was someone pretty interesting.
It was Mitch's turn next.
"I'm Mitch just recently turned seventeen and I tried to kill myself. My life turned to shit until recently." He looked at me and grinned.
"Watch the language dude." Kyle warned.
It was my turn next. I looked around the room.
"My name is Chance. I am stupid."
"Don't call yourself stupid Chance." Mindy told me. "No one here is stupid."
I held up my wrists which were wrapped up in bandages. "I tried to kill myself. I was in love." I looked around the room to see the reaction of everyone. "Well the person I was in love with was another guy. My so called friend outed me to my mom and she beat me until I told him to leave because he had lived with us for the past four years. He left and tried to kill himself. I felt like my life was over so I went over to my friend that outed me and slit my wrist making sure I bled all over him."
Everyone was quiet. I looked around to see the reactions on their faces. No one said a word. After a few minutes of silence, Mark finally spoke up.
He looked at me. "The Lord says you are an abomination to man kind. He shall hath no fury on your soul and you should burn in hell!" He got up from his chair and walked over to me. "The Lord scorns people like you." Before I knew it he had wrapped his hands around my neck and was chocking me. "Deliver him father! Deliver him and his wretched soul!"
His eyes were glazed over. They didn't look human. He just stared at me never blinking. His grip got tighter and tighter.
I could feel Mitch jump onto his back and try to wrestle him to the floor. He was no match. I could see behind Mitch that Kyle was also trying to get him off me.
Mindy looked over at the nurse station where Janet had been sitting reading a magazine this whole time. She hadn't even looked up at the sound of screaming.
"Call a code!"
Janet looked up briefly, saw what was going on. She threw her magazine down and picked up the phone.
"Code V acute unit." I heard her voice over the loud speaker system through out the hospital. "Cody V acute unit."
She put the phone down and ran over to where I was at. She grabbed Mark's thumb and bent it back, slowly weakening his grasp on me.
Mitch got off his back and Kyle reached around and grabbed Marks arms and pulled them behind his back and held him tightly. He pulled Mark back so that his chest was against Mark's back. He lowered him the ground and flipped him over to his stomach and laid on his back, pinning him to the floor.
By this time two other male workers had come over to the unit. One grabbed hold of his legs and held him. The other grabbed his head and held it because he was trying to bite Kyle.
Janet disappeared into the office behind the nurse's station.
"Get off me!" Mark shouted. "I am doing the Lord's will. Homosexuality is an abomination."
The guys grip got tighter on Mark's legs and he began to struggle to get free.
"Get off me fucker. I am doing the will of the Lord. Don't you fucking understand me?"
"And the Lord wants you to talk that way?" Debra asked laughing.
"Everyone down the hall." Mindy commanded.
"The day of the Lord is coming. Fuck you all he will take me and leave you assholes here to go through the fire."
Well, that was my morning. Not what I had wanted my first day in the nut house to be. After lunch we all had to go spend some time in our rooms for relaxation as the staff had called it.
I sat in my doorway. Mitch sat in his. He peeked into my room.
"Did your mom really beat you like you said?" He asked.
I nodded my head. "She beat me until I said I didn't love you." I looked at the floor. "It used to be worse. My mom used to beat me. She had stopped right before you came to live with us."
"I'm sorry. I will do whatever it takes to protect you." Mitch told me as he reached across the doorway and grabbed my hand to try and comfort me.
"I'd do anything to protect you too Mitch."
He let go of my hand and went back in his room and I went back in mine so we wouldn't get in trouble because we weren't supposed to be in our doorways.
I supposed I must have fallen asleep, because the next thing I know I had a hand on my shoulder and someone saying my name.
"Chance wake up."
I slowly opened my eyes and looked up. My mom and sister had both come into my room while I was sleeping.
I didn't want to see either one of them. I hated them both.
My sister looked like a lot like my mom. She had the same build as my mom, and had the same blue eyes as me.
"How you doing bro?" My sister smiled at me.
"Fine Daphne." I snapped trying to get the point across that I didn't want to talk to either one of them.
"Mom filled me in on everything that happened." She sat down on the bed next to me. "Why would you want to do such a thing?"
"What are you talking about? Trying to kill myself?"
"No saying that you are in love with another boy. I never liked Mitchell you know that. I knew there was something shady about him when I first met him and he tried to turn you into a queer."
"I'm just happy you don't have to think about him here. Think about what he did to you and made you do to him." Mom said as she sat down on my bed next to Daphne.
I grinned at the fact that she said I didn't have to think about him here.
"No mom. I don't have to think about him here. I don't have to at all." I told her.
It was the truth. I didn't have to think about him because he was in the room right next to mine.
"I want to ask you something mom." I said. "Well both of you."
"Sure." They both said in unison.
"Why do you both have such a problem with gays."
My mom and sister both looked at each other.
"It's a sin and you know that."
"Mitch has a good place to stay now." I told my mom and sister.
"How do you know?" Mom asked.
I looked up at her. "I love him mom."
She glared at me and before I knew it had slapped me in the face.
"He's another boy. You can't love him."
I looked up at my sister. She didn't say a word.
"He's my boyfriend mom. There is nothing you can do about it this time. I love Mitch."
My mom had a puzzled look on her face.
"He accepted my apology. We made up. He's here, next door and forgave me for what I did. For what you made me do to him." I explained. "I love him and you are going to just have to accept it. Both of you."
Mom looked down at me. "I would rather you be dead than except you as being a queer."
She slapped me across the face again.
"Stop! Just stop. I can't help the way I was born!"
"Choice Chance. That's what it's called a choice. You aren't born gay; you choose to be that way." My sister said.
"Why are you to so close minded?"
"We believe in the Lord's way." MY mom grabbed me. "Lets get you out of here before he infects you."
I jerked my wrist from her grasp. "Let go of me. We had sex last night I love him. I'm gay mom. I'm a fag. I like cock. What else do you want me to say?"
She and my sister both got off my bed and stared down at me.
"You are no longer a part of this family Chance. You no longer have a place to live. Your things will be out in the lawn when you get out."
"Have fun in your life of sin." My sister snickered.
"Your dad is rolling around in his grave now thinking about his son in bed with another man."
"Leave!" I shouted. "Get the hell out of my face both of you!"
I sat there on my bed. Both Liz and Ginnifer sat next to me. They had brought me some food from Mcdonalds. Our visit was interrupted by Chance screaming.
"Leave!" I heard him shout. "Get the hell out of my face both of you!"
I had told him that I would be there for him no matter what and I meant it. I looked at Liz and Ginnifer. They both nodded at me, knowing what I was thinking.
I got up and dashed out of my room and stood at Chance's doorway.
"Everything ok in here love?" I asked, knowing how bad it would upset his mom and sister hearing me talk to him like this.
"I never want to see you again!" Chance shouted at the two of them.
His sister turned around and looked at me. "Well if it isn't the spawn of Satan."
"Leave or else I will go tell the nurse. You both get out!"
They both looked at Chance.
"You are no longer a Stevens. No longer." His mom said as she turned and walked out of the room. His sister followed right behind her.
When I had seen them go out the main door I knew he was safe.
"Are you ok?" I asked.
Chance ran over to me and wrapped his arms around me. "I told them. I told them I loved you and that there was nothing they could do to change it."
"I want you so bad." I whispered in his ear.
"She kicked me out, said that my things would be out in the yard waiting for me when I got out of here."
"I'm sorry baby."
I could see the tears building up in his eyes.
"I know I did the right thing. I'm sorry I ever hurt you. Please don't ever leave Mitch. I am in love with you."
"Fuck it." I muttered. "I don't care where we are."
I leaned in and kissed him. My lips pressing hard against his reassuring him that he would be safe with me
"I love you." He said through our kiss.
"I'll be right back." I told him. "Don't go anywhere."
I left his door way and went back into my room where Liz and Ginnifer were asked.
"Is everything ok?" Ginnifer asked.
I shook my head no. "Chance told her he was gay and they couldn't change it. It was how he was and that he loved me. His mom said he no longer had a place to live and his things would be in the front lawn when he got out of here." I looked at both Liz and Ginnifer. "I know you both have done so much for me, but do you think Chance could stay with us. I promise we will both get jobs and move out and get our own place very soon."
Ginnifer nodded her head. "You both are welcome to stay with us as long as you want. I was in your shoes at your age. My parents found out I was a lesbian and threw me out. All I had were the clothes on my back."
I hugged them both. "Thank you so much."
I dashed out of my room and back over to Chance's.
"They said you can stay with us!" I exclaimed.
He smiled. "That's great. I love you so much Mitchell Mitchium.
"I love you too Chance-"
Chance interrupted me "I think I want to start going by my first and middle name. I don't want to have any connections with my family. I hate them so much. My mom keeps telling me that my dad is probably turning over in his grave. I hate her Mitch."
I grinned at him. "Well I love you."
