I looked at my mother, she was smiling and laughing. She got up and hugged me, her arms wrapped around me and her head was over my shoulder. She would always love me I know it, no matter how I looked or acted or even if I was deaf or blind she would never leave me or my father. However my father was different, everything had to go his way. If I wasn't the son he wanted he would probably leave me and my mom. I know him, he wouldnt love me the same ever again just because I'm gay and it doesn't apply to his rules.

" GAY! NO! Get out of this room! NOW!" He shouted, he was angry you could clearly tell. His eyebrows were angled, his teeth were clenched. He pointed me out of the room.

I ran into my room and buried myself in my blankets and put my head in between my knees. The jeans scratched against my face and the buttons were cool. The soft fabric catched my tears dripping out of my eyes and down my face. I clenched my teeth and wiped all the tears away. I looked at my little sister in the doorway and she came over to my bed.

" You told them?" She asked.

I knodded my head and looked at her, my eyes were red and swollen. She wiped away the tears from the end of my eyes. She rubbed my back and gave me a kiss on my forehead. She was the first person I told. Shes 2 years younger than me and I knew she would never judge me just like my mom. She hugged me and cried with me. She knew my dad would never allow this and would probably kicked me,her, and my mother out or he would leave us. I  put my head on her shoulder and higged her tightly.

" He leave us I know it!" I told her.

" Don't say that! You never know maybe he will accept it you never know what he will do." She responded, her voice cracked in between sobs.

" ASH! You know that he's never gonna get over this! YOU KNOW THIS!"

She began to cry and sob again, her sobs were loud and raspy. She coughed and coughed, over and over again. I rubbed her back. She was sick and the stress would just get her sicker, cancer, she had treatment years ago but it didn't work.She coughed, she began to couch up blood.She wiped it from her mouth and looked at me. Her eyes were red and swollen to. HEr eyes looked tired and worn out. 

"MOM!" I yelled.

I could hear her running down the hallway, her feet banged against the oak wooden floors. She ran into my room to see me holding Ash in my arms.
