I grew up thinking that what I am is wrong. It was so confusing for me growing up. I come from a small town in Tennessee and being what I am out in a place like that is similar to being stranded on an island. I found myself asking a lot of questions, but the most prominent question that made appearances in my thoughts was why am I not normal. It is almost sad to look back on. I was around 11 or 12 years old when I first asked myself that. When I didn't have an answer for myself, I convinced myself that it was just all in my head; that if I try hard enough I can be normal. I got so caught up in trying to be normal that I overlooked happiness. I tried so hard to please everyone around me that I shut myself down. I remember feeling so hopeless that love would never find me. Even when I moved out to California I felt pessimistic about finding anything. There was no such thing as a \"spark\" between two people. Then one day a girl named Callie came into my life. She made me feel things I have only seen in movies. And when she slammed the door to my apartment tonight, I felt the door slam on the little amount of hope that had been building inside me.  \"Why am I still sitting here?\" I asked myself. In an instant I ran out of my apartment and jumped in my car. She couldn't have gotten far. I didn't even bother with a seatbelt as I sped down the road. I found her soon enough and found that she was running. I quickly pulled my car over and threw the gear shift in park. \"CALLIE STOP!\" I yelled as I caught up to her. I grabbed her arms and forced her to face me. The street lamp closest to us illuminated the tears that were running down her face. Her chest was heaving as she struggled to breathe. The look on her face is what pained me the most. It wasn't just what happened to us that was conflicting with her emotions; it was everything. This was Callie breaking down. I pulled her towards me and felt her collapse against me, sobs getting louder. If I wasn't holding her up she would've fallen to the ground. I didn't know what to say so I just walked us to my car and carefully got her in. Here sobs had subsided and she was silent as we drove back to my place. When we walked in I guided us to the couch and grabbed a pillow. When I sat on one end of the couch I laid the pillow on my lap and instructed her to lay down. No words were exchanged as I ran my hands smoothly through her soft hair. My fingertips slowly glided through her scalp and then through her hair. She sighed and closed her eyes, instantly relaxing. For the next twenty minutes I soothed her and let her know that I was there for her.  \"I'm sorry.\" Callie broke the silence.  \"What are you sorry for Callie?\" I asked softly, my hand still stroking her hair.  \"For... Kissing you. I didn't mean to make you feel uncomfortable.\" \"You didn't.\" I stated.  \"It's just... I don't know. I don't know what is going on in my head!\" she exclaimed, opening her eyes again. \"Its ok Callie. I know what is going on with you. You are confused. Right? You've never had to deal with feelings for another girl right?\" I asked.  She responded with a nod.  \"And that's ok. I'm ok with being friends. We can just see each other at work and stuff.\" I stated, my heart sinking as I realized that she wasn't into me.  I felt Callie's head look up at me and I looked away, avoiding her gaze.  \"No, Laura. I like you, I really do. You've made me feel... Good. I've never looked forward to seeing anyone as much as I look forward to seeing you. Ive never felt... loved before. But I feel that with you. And when we kissed..\" She tilted my chin so that I could look at her. \"It was the best kiss I've ever had. And I'd like to ... try this. Whatever this is, I want it.\" she finished.  I sat there dumbstruck at her words. The only thing I could manage was, \"ok.\" Callie smiled and continued, \"It won't be easy though. You are going to have to be patient with me. Ok?\" she asked. Not being able to find my words again, I simply nodded my head.  \"Ok, well good. Now I should probably head home.\" Callie stated. At this I snapped up, \"Wait, you can't! Not after everything she has done to you! Don't go... please.\" My voice got softer as I said this. She looked at me and responded, \"I know. And I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared. I don't want to be homeless though. I am so emotionally spent that I can't deal with that right now. I'm just... exhausted.\" Callie closed her eyes again and took a deep breath, showing me how frustrated she was.  \"You don't have to deal with anything. You are going to stay with me. I don't have an extra room but I have this couch and I will even give you the bedroom. I can't watch you go back to her. You won't be hurt here. Please.\" I was begging by this point.  \"You would let me stay with you knowing what a mess I am and how fucked up my life is?\" she asked softly.  \"Of course. I really like you Callie. You don't deserve to be treated like that.\"  I stated, looking her in her eyes to show that I meant it.  \"Ok.\" she finally said.  \"Really?\" I asked, my grin growing wider by the second.  She giggled and nodded her head, flashing me the biggest smile I have ever seen on her. Now that is something I can get used to seeing.
