She knew she couldn’t avoid it anymore, it was time for the first day of her freshman year at high school. They say everything changes once you’re in high school, even the people. Amara crossed her fingers that this would be a move in the positive. She had already conquered what she felt to be the hardest thing she has ever done in her life, what could be worse? Since she came out to her parents everything had changed. Her mom tries too hard to be there for her but it was better than her rejection. As soon as Amara told her she started researching about support groups and calling around for places Amara could go to meet others like her. Although annoying, she was grateful her mother still loved her and didn’t look at her in shame. Her father wasn’t so cheery about the idea that his precious little angel would never marry and have children. He made less eye contact that usual and always acted a bit nervous. Amara told herself it would just take time for him to adjust. Although she didn’t admit it, it hurt her feelings to see him act that way. She was still the same little girl that she was five minutes before she told them, just more honest. All in all it went well telling her family and close friends but she was still nervous of how she was going to be treated at school. Seeing as how she had gotten the hardest part out of the way she wasn’t going to stay in the closet for school. She felt as if she might as well go all the way and just be open about the way she felt. She was gay and was proud of it even though her pride faltered every now and then when she got weird looks. Amara promised herself that no matter what she would keep her head up on her first day of high school, after all, this was a huge deal.
