*10 Years Later*
Cassandra looked into the hazel eyes that were starting to well up with tears. "I'm sorry," Cassandra whispered before turning and began walking away.
The raven haired girl stood there for a moment before running after Cassandra. "Cassie, please!" Lily hollered as she ran to catch up. Lily grabbed Cassandra's wrist, turning her back to face her. "Why?" Lily asked holding tightly onto the small wrists.
As Cassandra looked down, curled brunette hair fell into her face. "I don't love you," One of the biggest lies Cassandra has ever had to say.
Lily looked at Cassandra for a moment, still holding back her tears. "Don't lie to me!" Lily snapped. The two had spent three months in a relationship and it was only now that Lily could admit her love, hoping that Cassandra felt the same way.
It still doesn't feel right to Cassandra. Lying to her mother about her sexuality, even trying to convince herself that she isn't this way. Everytime Cassandra even tries to think about accepting it, she remembers the day her mother yelled at the teenagers in the mall.
The look on the girl with the mohawk was painful even for Cassandra. Even to see her so sad. After that day, she only saw the mohawk girl a few more times. Her hair grew in completely and it was coloured brown. All because of Monica, that girl changed her life and lost her love.
"Fine, you want to leave, go..." Lily gave up on her not saying anything and let go of her wrists. But even though she was free to go, Cassandra didn't leave. With struggle, Cassandra forced herself to look back up to Lily. "You're a horrid liar," Lily informed Cassandra with a laugh.
It was a few more moments in silence before Lily finally made a move. Long, pale arms wrapped around Cassandra's neck. "Don't..." Cassandra whispered as Lily leaned in for the kiss.
All Cassandra got in response was Lily rolling her eyes and saying, "shut up and accept it Cas." The closer Lily got, the more Cassandra's heart sped up and she still couldn't pull away from it. Lily let her lips hover above Cassandra's for a couple of seconds before finally closing the gap.
To Lily, it seemed like forever until Cassandra gave in and finally wrapped her arms around Lily's back. It wasn't long before Lily's hands found their way into Cassandra's long locks of hair.
It was at the moment when Cassandra parted her lips from Lily's. "I've loved you since the start," Cassandra admitted with a small smile. Lily examined Cassandra's face for a moment to see if she would crack up like normal when lying. The laughter never came.
Lily was about to go in for the kiss again until Cassandra's phone went off. The two girls sighed as Cassandra pulled it from her pocket. "It's Aaron..." Cassandra said in a worried tone.
The two shared a glance before Lily nodded and gestured to the phone. "What?" Cassandra answered.
Aaron seemed to be out of breath. "Your mom! She's coming over! I just ran home because she called me," Aaron said quickly.
Cassandra's eyes widened before looking at Lily. "I'm coming home," Cassandra said and hung up. Lily didn't even need an explanation. "Come spend the night, okay? I'll just tell my mom that you're my friend from school, which you technically are," Cassandra said as she grabbed Lily's hand, hurrying back to her car.
It didn't take long to arrive to the car and Cassandra didn't live to far. "Will you ever tell your mom?" Lily asked as Cassandra left the car parking lot.
There was only laughter from Cassandra. "No, when I was ten, she said if I ever turn out to be a lesbian, she would disown me," Cassandra said as she hurried back to the apartment.
After that, Lily stayed silent. It was a conversation the two have had before. The fact that Lily was being hidden seemed to hurt her. Cassandra felt guilty about it but there wasn't much she could say.
The rest of the drive was silent as they got back to the apartment and inside. In the living room, there was laughter. With some hesitancy, the two "friends" walked into the living room. "Hi mom..."
