PostSubject: Chapter 16: Unlocked   Thu Nov 20, 2008 9:07 pm

Lately I'd been sleeping well at night. I mean I was living the good life now. Overall, I knew it was stupid to be taking in every little account, but still. I had great friends, decent grades, a now knowing & understanding father & of course, a loving, caring boyfriend.

So anyway, I woke up refreshed & feeling pretty good. I got up &, only in a nightshirt & boxers, got some clothes out of my drawer & walked down to the bathroom to take a shower. It was freezing in the hallway, but once I stepped into the bathroom, it wasn't as bad.

When I was out of the shower, I looked at myself in the mirror. I fixed my hair a little bit, which had grown a lot over the months. But today, I was getting a haircut.

It was my 15th birthday. Jade & I had very close birthdays, if you didn't know.

I had told my dad the night before that I wanted a haircut before school. I told him that I would wake up extra early, walk to a nearby barbershop & give me a haircut. Not a buzzcut, but a good amount taken off. My hair would look like it use to around when Jade & I first became boyfriends.

About half an hour later, when I got back to my house that morning, I looked at myself in the mirror again. I thought I looked pretty good, with my dirty blond hair a little spiky.

I got the rest of my stuff ready for school & decided to walk to school early instead of taking the bus so I could surprise Jade.


After a while, a lot of the kids were showing up for school. I decided to wait in the bathroom closest to the entrance because I knew that Jade always went in there every morning to make sure he looked decent for the school day.

Eventually, Jade came in & went to the mirror. He fixed his hair a little bit & wiped excess breakfast off his lips. I crept up behind him & threw my arms around him.

"WHOA!" he jumped right out of my grasp & turned to see who it was. His face was completely white & his mouth was open. But when he saw it was me, a slight smile made its way to his mouth.

"You jerk" he laughed.

When he noticed my haircut, his jaw just kind of hung open.

"Oh my god...you look so cute Noah. When did you get a haircut?"

"This morning, to surprise you" I said beaming.

"Why me? It's YOUR birthday?"

"Yeah but still."

"You look good...really" Jade said dreamily.

"So where's my present?" I asked laughing.

He smiled, walked over to me & gave me one of the best kisses he ever gave me. Long, open-mouth, passionate & with plenty of tongue. After a few seconds, we pulled apart.

"This afternoon" he answered. I smiled.

"But...it's a different kind of gift..." he said slowly.

"I don't get it."

"At GSA...I'm gonna tell them that I definitely am gay."

I just stared at him in disbelief.


I just kind of kept looking at him. I couldn't believe he was doing it. I mean I wasn't upset by any means, I just...was wowed with what he was planning to do.

"I really think it's time I let people know."

"I guess..." I sort of trailed off.

"You're not ok with it, are you."

"No, no I'm fine with of course, I just can't believe you're going through with it. That's pretty bold of you Jade" I said to him.

"I know. I'm doing it for you, actually."


"Yeah. I figure maybe a nice gift would be showing you that I'm not afraid to be who I am."

I smiled at his statement.

"Good luck" was all I could say.

"Thanks. After school...let's meet up & then head to your house" he said.




When we arrived at my house later, we threw our stuff on the floor of my room upstairs & jumped onto the bed.

"So how was it, telling the GSA people?" I asked him while I kicked my shoes off.

"It was pretty good actually. I should have known they wouldn't be surprised, haha. They were really cool & unsurprised about it."

"Can I ask you something?"

"You just did."

"No I mean something else."

"Yeah go ahead."

"Back on your birthday, your folks took you to the carnival, right?"

He thought.

"Yeah, why?"

"Did they talk to you at all about...being gay?"

He sighed & then thought about what to say next.

"Yeah but not at the carnival thing. They sat me down later that night."

"What'd they say about it?"

"They asked if you & I are in a relationship & I told them yes. I don't honestly don't know if they approve or not because they didn't say it was ok, but they also weren't upset at all. So I'm not sure. Both of them said they kind of suspected it since they found my journal. They snooped pretty much. They also pretty much just asked about us..." Jade informed me.


"I told them that we've been together for a while now & that our relationship is pretty...intimate" he said, cringing.

"Why?" he asked me.

"Because later that night, my dad talked to me about it. He said that your folks had told him about the journal thing & then he found out it was kinda true when he saw us in our boxers snuggled up on the couch."

"Oh" said Jade blankly.

"He's really cool with it though. He supports us 100%."

Jade breathed a sigh of relief.

"Thank god. I hope my parents will eventually."

"I'm sure they will. You're their only son" I said, kissing him warmly.

We kissed for a few minutes, just laying next to each other on my bed. My hand reached up & went through his hair.

"I'm sorry" he said after a minute.

"About what?" I asked. What did he have to be sorry for?

"That I don't think I can go much...further today if you know what I mean" he said with a sorrowful look on his face.

"Jade..." I said, kissing him again.

"...I don't care what we do or not. I just want you around on my birthday, it doesn't matter what we do."

"Ok. I guess that also means the nice restaurant my folks, me & your dad picked out to celebrate your birthday is out of the question" he said sadly.

My face lit up like a bulb.


Later that night, my dad, me, Jade & his parents were sitting at a table at the nice restaurant in the next town over.

"Noah, we'd all like to say happy birthday" said Jade's father.

"Congrats big guy" said my own dad. He was on my left, Jade was on my right.

"Thanks everybody" I said.

"Now before the cake comes out, I think we should open up some discussion about what's been happening lately" said Jade's mom.

"Like the fact that we want you boys to be safe" said my dad.

"And don't be going around telling the world about what you two do because you could get in trouble for being that young, understand?" asked Jade's dad.

"Yeah" said the two of us. I was glad that they were cool with Jade & I being a couple.

"Ok, I think that's fine for now. Now we can just wait for the cake" said his mom with a smile.

While the parents talked, Jade took my hand in his as we waited for my cake. We leaned towards each other & kissed, right in front of the folks. Whether or not they saw, I don't know, but I didn't care.

A little bit later, my cake arrived at the table. This was my favorite birthday ever.
