I stood outside of her house wondering, not for the first time, why I kept coming here. I never really talked to her about anything special but still I felt drawn to her. I feared that she would reject me if I told her how I really felt about her. In our society today lesbians as well as gays and bisexuals are looked down apon. We are really no different, in my case I liked both guys and girls.
But she was the first one to ever steal my heart, and she didn't even know. Even as the rain pounded into me, I still continued to stand here watching her move around her bedroom. Oh, what I would give to be up there in the room with her, but I know that I can not.
I let my eyes follow her shadow from one end of her room to the other. I caught my breath when she opened her curtains and looked down directly where I was standing. Then she smiled and held up her finger for me to stay where I was. I thought about running away but didn't.
She opened her front door and came running toward me. As she threw her arms around me hugging me close I couldn't help but smile, to have her in my arms. 'Why are you out in the rain? Come inside,' she said gently kissing my cheek. And that's when I figured out that she had always known and that she returned my feelings.
I had a feeling that we would be happy together and together we could take on the world. 'How long have you known?' I asked curious to know when. 'For about the entire school year. I thought that I'd never get the chance to tell you how I feel about you,' she said smiling brightly.
'I always thought that you would reject and shun me because of who I am. But I have loved you from the moment I first saw you.' I said looking out the window as we were now in her bedroom. 'I feel the same way about you. Honestly, I should have known,' she smiled making my heart burst with joy.
'Well now we both know and we can move on from here.' I said taking her hand in mine. She smiled before leaning forward and placing a gentle kiss on my lips. Oh yeah I knew now what I should have known all along. We were destined to be soul mates.
