My heart burst as she pulled me close and whispered those two words.
My hope and friendship was restored in two words. I cried even harder and hugged her tighter, and then when we finally released each other I wiped away my tears of joy.
"Thank goodness. I was so afraid..."
"Honestly, I was being so stupid... it just gave me a shock is all."
"I know... it gave me a shock too."
We sat on her bed and leaned on the pillows.
"What's... what's it like?"
"Being... you know... a lesbian."
"Normal. There's nothing different about it. In all honesty, that's all I can say."
"How far did you and Amy....?"
"...Oh god, um, only kissing. Seriously. I mean I'm upset that it's over..." Here I realised how upset I was..."but I realise that there was too much pressure on it. If Tamara went and Amy came up to me and asked me if we could start over, I would."
"Yes. Just to see where it would end."
"I still can't believe it."
"Me neither Anna, me neither."
