I was in the car with my Uncle this morning who i call Father (mine was absent and my uncle raised me. Took me in his home, him and my aunt treated me like nothing less than a son.) we start talking about relationships. Which is odd this is a man who refers to any guy I am dating as simply my “friend”, He stays far away from that topic, I guess He just silently accepts its. So to find myself talking about relationships was shocking. We moved though quickly to happiness so I took my chance and asked “are you happy in you marriage? ” He just recently married after my aunt died almost two years ago. He looks at me and says, “I am happy, She say shit,I get mad. I love her though, I am happy.” I look at him and start to say “Well relationships for me have been……..” That was as far as i got before he looks at me and says ” I love you….your home….just be happy.” I looked up and somehow this man made it 6 blocks in about 2 minute. He must have floored it when I started out talking. I just laughed and got out the car. Moments like this reminds me why i love him. I know He loves me. And I appreciate his silent support, Cant talk much about it, but He has my back. He nods in silent approval and he is always there when I call him. I truly believe He just wants to see me happy.
And you said you we’re not gay. Thats ludicrous, you can’t help it. Seriously it’s okay. We all know anyway and love you just the same. We want you happy in your own skin.
I was walking through the mall and there I see my Grandmother. That simple! I was caught holding His hand. So I look at her and say,“hi Granny this is my boyfriend.”
and that is how I came out.
