As Alex made her way home, she felt simultaneously giddy and lost. Giddy at the prospect of kissing Fiona and more. Oh my. She wanted more? She smiled to herself, flushing scarlet in excitement at the possibility of more. Hugging herself she inhaled deeply, trying to calm herself. That's all that she'd need is her aunt seeing how she positively glowed since meeting Fiona. It had only been one day, but the electricity between them was undeniable. She felt alive and free, as if a weight had lifted off her chest. It was as if she had told this great secret, when in fact she had accidentally discovered one about herself.
Fiona had her completely enamored in such a short amount of time, that she taken aback in surprise. 'Am I gay?' she asked herself, knowing full and well what the answer was. 'We shall see, in time.' her subconscious whispered. Hence the reason for her also feeling so forlorn. She wasn't good with change. Upon opening her front door she heard her aunt calling to her from the kitchen, "How was your day, sweetie?" she asked while setting the table. "Good, I made a new friend," Alex answered absentmindedly. She grabbed some of the food and set it on the table.
Noticing how spacey her niece was being, Gina asked, "That's a good thing, right?" cocking her head to one side. Alex frowned, contemplating what she was being asked. She bit her lip before blurting out her answer quickly, before she could change her mind, "How do you know if you're gay?" Alex stole a peek at her aunt's expression, which was mostly surprised. "I'm not sure," she finally answers, honestly, then countering with, "Why? Do you think you are?" Alex could tell she wasn't judging her. As they sat down to dinner, she opened up to her aunt about her feelings. Before going to sleep, she breathed out a deep sigh of relief. 'I'll be OK,' she thought, before drifting off to sleep.
