Demetreus walked away from his family as they were going to their seats. Dee walked over towards the section of all the graduates and saw his fraternity brothers and sorority sisters dressed in royal blue and pure white walk into the arena. Dee turned around, and smiled as he threw up his fraternity's hand sign. He wrapped his fraternity stole around his neck and smiled. He looked around to see Mikhael but didn't see anyone.
Graduation starts in 15 minutes and no sign of his boyfriend, Mikhael. Dee got a little upset as the graduates started to line up for the commencement ceremony. Dee took a deep breath in and then outwards. He looked in front of him to see Latoya smiling and showing off her confidences. He turned to see Rob stumble in, with his cap and gown on. He looked to the right off him, the next row over and waved to Terrance. He look over his left shoulder, to see Andi excited. He was nervous but he said a little prayer to himself as he calmed his nerves.
The Commencement Ceremony was lovely as the guest speaker, Bill Cosby was presenting a dynamic speech. The excitement and positive tension was filling up the room. Bill Cosby finished his speech and now it was time for the obtainment of the Degrees.
Everything faded into slow motion for Demetreus...
Background sound as Dee started to get emotional and he let go of his emotions of Kel not being there.
