My Secret Lover
I shuddered slightly as his rough masculine arm gently came down around my shoulders.
"It's okay" he whispered soothingly into my ear, I hadn't even realised I was shaking. I looked up into his eyes and nodded my head slightly, still worried about the prospect of what I thought was about to happen. He smiled back at me and moved his hand to gently cup my chin, he moved in slowly; he kissed me, it was the most passionate kiss I have ever experienced to date, they talk of planets aligning and birds singing, this is what I experienced with Zach he was so perfect and it was just so right, why did it have to be so wrong?
Zach was the first man I had ever truly been myself with, he was about a year older than me and so sure of himself, he was Zach and he didn't care if people didn't like it. They used to call him names like Fag and Butt Pirate but with his great looks and winning personality it quickly became known that if you wanted a girlfriend in this school you would not mess with Zach Hanrahan because he was best friend to each and every girl in this small town and they were all equally protective of him. I on the other hand was not sure of myself, I did not have the confidence to stand in front of the school and announce my sexuality and I only had two friends that were girls and they didn't even know this secret I had tried so hard to hide, that is of course until I met Zach.
I had been working at a deli for almost a year with two women I formed an instant bond with; Katherine and Samantha. Katherine was 19 and just over a year older than me, Sam on the other hand was 21 and I looked up to her so much as a friend as well as a role model. She didn't know my secret. No one did. She introduced me to a girl called Kylie who I clicked with instantly but was never really attracted to, but it would appear she quite liked me, with some serious pushing from Sam eventually Kylie and I began to see each other quite regularly and were actually dating for a short time. Over the few months of us being together I met one of Kylie's best friends Zach who was beautiful and everyone crowded around him constantly.
