When Nothing Goes Right
"You know what, I'm not even in the mood right now to deal with this." Mrs. Daniels said with her hands in the air as she stormed off away from us up the stairs.
We hurriedly put our shirts back on and I couldn't look anywhere but down and I didn't know what to do, should I leave or should I stay for Zander. I didn't know the right thing to do. Zander was quiet too, Mr. Daniels stood there for a second taking us in. Finally Zander couldn't take it and decided to speak.
"Dad..." He started.
"You know I'm fine with who you are right?" his dad said smiling, I looked up at him and he smiled at me too.
"Yeah I know dad, we had this talk when I first came out. It's just its one thing to know it and one thing to see it."
"Well just reminding you, and don't worry about your mom, she's not mad at you she's mad at me. I'm sure she's fine with this, well I mean that you guys seem to be a couple now. I'm not so sure about finding you guys half naked, but this whole thing isn't new for her. She's accepted you for you a long time ago don't forget that."
"I know dad, thanks." Zander said taking my hand.
I was a little uncomfortable but I smiled at him and squeezed his hand.
"Just treat my son right Sky, I like you a lot and I know you're a good guy so I trust you." He winked at me.
"Thanks sir." I replied with a blush.
"Oh and boys try not to do anything private out in the open where anyone can walk in on" He said as he walked out the room.
"Sorry about that" Zander called after him, joining me in blushing.
Zander studied me while I watched his dad leave. Then I turned to look at him as he leaned his head on me.
"Are you okay?" he asked.
"Yeah it's just weird, where not even together for a day and your parents know, and not only that but just think of how my sessions with your mom are going to go now."
Zander laughed as he got up and lead me up to his room, where we could have a little more privacy.
I came home with a smile on my face that didn't even falter when I met the very stern look my mother was giving to me, when I walked into the living room. She definitely wasn't happy.
"You know the least you could have done last night was to call me and tell me you weren't going to be coming home, because then I wouldn't have stayed up all night worrying about what could have happened to you." My mother stated as she walked up to me.
"I know and I apologize ma, I didn't mean to spend the night I just sort of fell asleep." I said to her.
"Well next time I want you to check in with me ok." She crossed her arms in irritation.
"I promise ma, it will never happen again." I told her.
She studied me for awhile and then her face loosen up.
"There's something different about you. You seem...happier." she smiled at me.
"I don't know I guess I just had a good time." I said blushing a little.
"Well I guess something good came out this, it's nice to see you actually happy and not just pretending to be to please me." She said rubbing her hand on my cheek as I smiled at her.
I went up into my room very antsy, I couldn't stay still I was so excited about being with Zander, I already missed him and it had only been about forty minutes since I kissed him goodbye. I could still smell him on me and I wished he was still in my arms. I felt so comfortable with him there, like nothing could hurt me while he was with me. I felt like a completely new person around him.
I decided to call him just to hear his voice.
"Hey baby, you miss me already." He said as he answered the phone.
"No..." I said getting embarrassed at how stupid I was
being, "I mean yes...can you blame
Zander laughed, "Relax, Babe. I was actually wondering how long it was going to take you to call me once you got home."
"Oh, ok, now I don't feel stupid." I said to him. "I miss you."
"I miss you too. I wish we could hangout tomorrow but Sunday is sort of like family day for us." Zander replied.
"Yeah same here, church and spending the day with the `rents." I said laying across my bed
"Well we'll meet up at school in the morning on Monday." He said.
"...yeah." I said slowly, suddenly thinking about school.
"Sky... what's wrong?" Zander asked noticing the sudden change in my voice.
"N-nothing." I said trying to cover it up.
"Sky...if your worried about our relationship in public, you don't have to, we could just act like friends at school, I don't mind doing that." Zander told me.
"Well it's not that I'm ashamed of you or anything, it's just people talk about me soo much already and I don't want rekindle the fire."
"I completely understand Sky, don't worry about it." He said sympathetically.
I smiled at how understanding he was being and thought to myself how lucky I was. Then a thought occurred to me. What am I so afraid of?
"You know what, screw it." I said as I rolled over on my back
"Screw what?" he asked confused.
"Who cares what people think, it not like they don't already think I'm gay. All I'd be doing is confirming it." I said propping myself up on my elbow.
"Are sure Sky? I mean they haven't been bothering you about that kiss in awhile. And I seriously don't mind keeping us private until you're really ready for it." He said.
"That's not fair to you, for me to hide you like that though, I may be uncomfortable at first but I'll get over it, okay?" I told him
"Okay Babe whatever you want."
Sunday seemed to drag on as all I could think about was Zander and being able to hold him again. My mom couldn't get over how different I was since that party and my dad just kept giving me a knowing smirk. I couldn't help thinking if he'd still be smirking like that if he really knew who I was with all day Saturday.
That night I talk on the phone with Zander again, he was trying to convince me that I wasn't ready for a public relationship and that I should really think about waiting, but I told him that everyone would find out sooner or later and I rather just get it over with sooner. He hesitantly agreed.
On Monday morning I got up extra early, I was excited and sick at the same time. I was worried about what people would think but I told myself to get over it and not worry about other people. All that mattered was Zander.
I got to school and waited in the front where we planned to meet up. I was a few minutes early so I knew I would be waiting a bit for Zander to get there. The more I waited the more nervous I got.
"Aw, that's cute. You waiting for your boyfriend?" Angie teased as she walked up to me and gave me a hug.
"Um...yeah..." I told her. She gave me a look
"Are you ok, you seem really nervous about something, relax." She said with concern.
"I'm ok, I'm just wondering how everyone is going to react, that's all."
"No one has to know Skyler, you guys can just be `friends' during school." She said to me.
"I know but..." I started.
"Hold on, Zander isn't forcing you to come out is he? Because if he is then I'm..." She said getting mad.
"No, it's not like that. Actually I wanna do it for him, he's been trying to talk me out of it. It's just... It was easier talking about it than actually doing it." I said still nervous.
"Skyler listen to me, coming out is a very delicate process and you should only do it when you are ready and not for anybody else. I'm sure Zander understands what you are trying to do and he'll understand if you change your mind. Just really think about this before you jump into it." She said to me.
"I have thought about this, and I want to do this. I just want to get this part over and done with, it's going to happen eventually right?"
"I really think you should think more about this and wait." She said unconvinced.
Just then I spotted Zander walking from the parking lot. He caught my eye and we stared at each other as he approached smiling. I zoned out just watching him and Angie finally noticed that I wasn't paying attention to her.
"Sky are you listening to a word I'm saying." She said and when I didn't answer she glanced at what I was staring at, "I guess not." She smirked.
Zander walked up to us and said hi, she gave Angie a hug and then when he turned to me we sort of stood there awkwardly and I was suddenly aware of all my surroundings. I gave him a nervous smile.
"So are you sure about this?" he asked as he reached out his hand towards mine.
I tensed up and only nodded, taking a deep breath. He grabbed my hand as I tensed up more. He took a look at me and let go of my hand. His face was neutral though so I couldn't read his face. I gave him a confused look.
"You're not ready for this, and I'm not gonna let you do something you're uncomfortable with. I appreciate it but I want you to be comfortable before we decide to go public ok." He told me giving me a smile.
I looked at him and I knew he was right and so was Angie.
"See I told you he'd understand." Angie smirked at me.
"Okay, okay. I was wrong I get it." I said smiling and loosening up a bit.
"Are you ok?" Zander asked me.
"Yeah, I'm sorry." I said looking down.
"Don't be, let's go inside." He said as the three walked together into the school.
"So, this whole time, it's been my son in your dreams." Mrs. Daniels asked me as I sat in my session, trying my best not to look her in the eyes while I blushed.
"Um...yeah." I said giving her a glance then looking down at her desk.
"Well you should know by now, that I'm protective of my own. I only want what's best for him." She said in a bland tone, looking at me over her square rimmed glasses that she only wore during her sessions.
I started to feel queasy, thinking she was about to warn me away from her son. What would I do then, I couldn't just give him up now that I finally had him.
"I've gotten to know you very well through our sessions and with you helping my husband and the both of us agree that you are a great person, and we've come to think of you as one of our own." She said to me, with a hint of a smile as I looked up into her face.
"I...um... thanks..." I said at a loss for words.
"You guys are actually together though right, what my husband and I walked in on wasn't just a random act of teenage hormones and lust was it?" she asked giving me a stern look from behind her desk.
"No, no we're together, and I promise I won't do anything to hurt him." I told her quickly.
"Look I'm not stupid, I know you're not Zander's first boyfriend, you're the first one I've met but I know he's had others. I also know you probably won't be his last. Just don't hurt him on purpose ok. That's all I ask." She said to me
I sort of frowned when she said that I probably wouldn't be the last, I hope that I would be, I couldn't imagine what life would be like without Zander now. I nodded towards her and she became more pleasant as she changed the subject.
After the session was over I walked out of the office on the side of the house, to find Zander waiting for me on the private pathway that led to Mrs. Daniels home office, he slipped into my arms and gave me a kiss. We stood there for awhile just holding each other.
"God I've been waiting to do that all day." Zander said into my chest as we continued the embrace.
"Me too, believe
Zander had a big backyard; there was a good sized pool with a nice little waterfall. He also had a big grass area with different fruit trees, a garden, and a birdbath that I actually helped Mr. Daniels install. His backyard reminded me of a beautiful mini park.
We took a seat next to a really big tree. I leaned back against the trunk and Zander leaned in on top of me. We sat there for awhile just enjoying each other's presence.
"So how was torture with my mom?" Zander asked with his eyes closed and my arms wrapped around him.
"It wasn't that bad, actually." I told him holding him closer to me with his head against my shoulder. "She basically welcomed me into the family, with a warning to never hurt you."
"How funny I got the same speech about you, except mine went more in the lines that if I ever did anything to hurt you I'd be put up for adoption." Zander chuckled, "My parents really seem to like you babe. This is actually new for me. I've never introduced them to any of my ex's before, so it's weird to have that type of relationship bond with the parents."
I laughed at him as we sat in silence for a few minutes.
"Sky?" Zander said with a little tension in his voice.
"What's up?" I asked curiously
"I was wondering something, and I know it doesn't have any relevance now, but I can't stop thinking about it." Zander said as he lifted himself off me to face me.
"What's wrong?" I asked nervously as I slid up against tree.
Zander hesitated as he wrapped his arms around his knees. "I was wondering if you ever had feelings for Kyle."
"What? Kyle?" I asked shocked as I gave him a weird expression.
"Well at the party I walked in on you guys kissing. And I keep thinking about it." Zander said like this thought was hurting him.
"Well I was a little drunk first of all, and no Zan... you have nothing to worry about where Kyle is concerned, I don't and never did have feelings for him. Only you." I told him as I reached out and ran a hand through his hair. Zander smiled at me and then I added, "But you know he is sort of hot, I wouldn't mind..."
"Hey!!!" Zander said punching my arm and giving me a stern look while I smiled back at him.
"Ow, that actually hurt... I was joking you know." I chuckled at him as he crossed his arms.
"Well I didn't think it was funny." He said with a straight face, as continued to smile at him.
After awhile he finally smiled back and turned to lay against me again.
"You don't have to worry, Kyle is just a friend and that's all he'll ever be ok?" I told him squeezing him in my arms. Zander broke out of my arms.
"Friend?" Zander asked getting mad.
"Yes Zander friend, I told you he was my friend a long time ago. Just because we're together now doesn't change that."
Zander's face turned red.
"No, Sky. You can't be friends with him. He's an asshole that only cares for himself. He'll screw you over if you let him." Zander ranted.
"Zander, Kyle's been nothing but nice to me. I don't see what you're talking about." I said trying to convince him.
"But I know Sky, trust me on this." Skyler said close to tears, but still mad.
"Look, I know you guys had bad history and you saw a scary side of him when he lit that room on fire, but he's been getting help, he's on medication. People can change, can't they?" I told him getting frustrated,
"Skyler, he tried to rape me. Did he tell you that part? First he gets me to break up with my boyfriend, then he breaks my heart after finally getting into my pants, then he tries to rape me when I'm trying to find closure and all that was before he destroys someone else's room and sets fire to it with me still in it. He's done too much to me to forgive him and I'm not. I don't want him around." Zander said through tears.
I was shocked. I didn't know the whole story before, Kyle had only told me bits and pieces and I wasn't in the right frame of mind at that time either so there was only soo much I remembered at the party. I definitely forgot about the kissing part.
I grabbed him and hugged him to me as he broke down in tears, shaking slightly. I tried to comfort him.
"Shh, it's ok Zander. I'm sorry, I didn't know." I rubbed his hair as he clanged to me.
It hurt me to see him like this. And I now understood why Zander was so mad about me being friends with Kyle.
"Zander I'll let Kyle know that we can't be friends anymore, next time I talk to him ok?" I told him soothingly.
Zander just nodded his head into my chest. We sat there for awhile just in each other arms.
The next day at school I was there early again, this time I went up to my locker first and decided I would wait for Zander by his. When I got to mine Angie was there waiting for me.
"Hey you, how's the love life going?" Angie asked giving me a hug and then leaning against the locker next to mine.
"A bit rocky, but it's going great." I smiled at her as I opened my locker.
"Now I need a guy, I'm not gonna be stuck as a third wheel." Angie said as I laughed at her.
"I'm sure you'll find one. You're very pretty." I complimented her, getting what I needed from my locker
"Thanks, but you have to say that, you're my friend, it's required." She told me as I closed my locker and we started to walk towards Zander's.
"Oh really?" I asked her with a chuckle.
"I just wish I could find that perfect guy, you know, one with a great body, beautiful hair, nice smile, some like, like... him, yum... who is that. He's new." She said pointing.
I smiled at her silliness as I turned in the direction she was pointing in.
At once my smile dropped, as I saw the guy trying to open his new locker three down from Zander's. I froze while Angie still checking the guy out went to stand next to Zander's locker. When she noticed that I was still standing in the middle of the hall, she called out to me.
"Skyler, what are you doing?" She said waving me over.
This got the guy's attention; he turned in my direction as I walked over to Angie. He smiled widely at me as he followed me over. Angie was in shock as she gave him a flirty eye.
"Hey Sky, how've you been." He said, as Angie looked between the two of us.
"Wait, You know him, Sky?" Angie asked confused.
I was confused myself and at a loss for words and before I could even form a reply for either of them I was interrupted by Angie's eagerness.
"Hi, I'm Angie and you are?." She said taking his hand and giving him a wink.
"What, the fuck are you doing here?" Zander said walking up to us.
Angie looked even more confused and worried now at Zander's reaction. "You know him too." She asked.
"I've decided to come back to school and get my diploma, I'm a student again." Kyle replied with a smile only looking at me.
Angie was looking between the three of us with no clue what was going on. Zander was red in the face staring Kyle down. Kyle still hadn't taken his eyes off me. While I just looked around and thought to myself, this is definitely not going to be a good thing, wasn't I was done with all this bad luck shit.
