Kayden: Shock

I'd been laying around in bed, watching a movie on my laptop, when I heard the door knock. I jumped. Then I laughed at myself- I was so paranoid sometimes. "Who is it?" I called out. There was no answer, just another knock at the door. I remember thinking to myself that it was kind of strange, so I opened the door just a tiny bit. I cheered up when I realised that it was Aysh.  I smiled at her and opened the door.

Then I saw her face. I wasn't sure what was wrong, but she didn't look too cheery. I gesture for her to come in, then gave her a hug as usual. She pulled away and stepped back. What was up with her today? "Kayden, I have to tell you something." she whispered. I remember wondering why she was whispering, but I didn't interrupt.  "I think you should know something more about me. I am not a normal, boy-crazed teenage girl for more reasons then you know....... I am gay." At that point, I think I kind of froze. I mean, I'd had my suspicions... but suddenly her saying it made it all so much more real. Then, I realised she was still talking. "I think I am in love with you."

I cannot ever remember being so shocked in my life. I'd wondered, before,  whether she'd known how I'd felt, but I'd never considered that maybe she felt the same way. I realised that I was holding my breath, and slowly breathed out. I felt my legs go weak and my heart start pounding faster. Dammit. I didn't know how to react to these situations. I looked up at her nervously. "Why didn't you tell me before?" I asked her. Why didn't I notice before? I couldn't believe it. I felt stupid; for not telling her how I felt sooner.

"I didn't want to ruin our friendship. You're my first true friend, I didn't want to spoil things by telling you that I saw you as more than that." I smiled at her. "Nothing would ever spoil our friendship." I told her, pulling her in to a hug. Then, I whispered in her ear. "I love you too." I pulled away from the hug and looked her in the eye. I shrugged. "I love you too." I said simply. 


The End
