The Long Way Home
I was walking home from the park one day when I saw these too boys push down another kid about my age. They walked away from him after that and just kept on going. By the way my name is Trevor and I am 15 years old. I have Blonde hair and green eyes. I weigh about 135lbs, and I am only 5'8. Oh yeah I'm also gay.
This kid looked to be about my age and height, but with dark brown hair and puppy dog brown eyes. I felt sorry for him and went to help him up. As I got closer I noticed he was crying. I slowly walked up to him.
"Ummm hey need some help?" I offered. He looked up and I could see the pain in his eyes, but more then that the only other thought that went through my mind is was that he was beautiful.
"Ummm yeah thanks," he said. I put my hand out and he grabbed it and I helped him us. I felt an electric shock shot right threw me and I held his hand. When he was standing I keep holding his hand and just stared straight into his eyes. He took his other hand and wiped away the remaining tears. He slowly withdrew his hand from mine and looked at me.
"Thanks." He said shyly.
"Your welcome. I'm Trevor by the way. Trevor Longsten." I said still looking into his eyes. He noticed me staring and blushed.
"Hi, Trevor, I'm Levi." He blushed and looked down again. God he was so beautiful. Levi bent down and started picking up his books, I also started helping by picking up the papers that fell out of some of his books. We gathered up everything and he slowly put them all together in a neat pile so they would be easier to carry.
"So where do you live?" I asked just staring at him. He blushed when he noticed but replied anyways.
"Over on Longbottom road. What about you." Wow he lived right behind me and I never noticed him before damn that sucks.
"Cool I live on Claire Street, one road over, wow that is so cool. Why haven't I seen you before?" I asked as we started walking home.
"Oh ummmm we just moved here a few weeks ago and I don't go out all that much. I don't even know what the neighbor hood is like really." He replied. I didn't want the conversation to end so quickly so I took a chance.
"Hey man I really want to talk more mind if we take the long way home?" I asked. He smiled.
"No that's fine with me."
"Cool. Well the neighbor hood is pretty cool. There are a bunch of kids here and there. Those two bullies you saw were Jeff and his brother Patrick. There real pricks if you know what I mean. There's a park about a quarter of a mile down the road and a swimming pool too. Other then that there isn't much to tell. With school starting soon things will quite down a little. If you are going to the public schools, you will go to Smith High School. If not and you go to private school, you will be going to Christian View Academy. Both are real cool." I said as we keep up a nice slow walk.
"Cool I think I am going to the Christian Academy. What school do you go to." He asked.
"I go to View Academy I'll be in the 10th grade.. That's its nickname by the way View Academy. So what kind of things do ya like to do?" I asked getting excited.
"I'll be in the 10th grade as well. I like to read and write. I love music, things like rock, slow rock, classical, oldies, pop and so on. I love to ride my bike and just walk around. I also love to play on my computer as well. What about you?" he asked.
"Pretty much the same thing but I like grunge music along with the other stuff. My computer is a custom built 5 gigabyte hard drive, top line RAM, CD disk reader and writer and DVD connection." I said. We had about another mile or so to go so we took our time and keep on talking. We had a lot in common and I was hoping he would be my friend.
"So what made ya'll move from your last home?" I asked. When I did I looked at him and I could tell that he was upset from that question. I was about to tell him never mind when he answered.
"You don't want to know ok. Just lets say some boys picked on me so bad I had to leave. My parents weren't mad or anything. Actually they're pretty cool. They just couldn't handle seeing me so up set all the time." He said. Wow that was sad I hope everything will be ok this time around.
"Well don't worry things will go ok. People are pretty cool around here." I said smiling at him. He smiled back and I noticed that he had dimples. They were so cute. Our streets were coming up so we parted and said goodbye, but not before exchanging phone numbers.
"I'm home," I hollered out, no one answered. Hmm wonder were everyone is. I looked in the kitchen and saw a note from my mom.
Your father and I had to go and pick your brother up from school. Will be back later this evening. Dinner is in the oven on warm should be ready by 6:30. Please take out the garbage, and feed the dog. You know the other rules.
Wow they usually leave me a list of rules I guess this is to see how responsible I have become.
I looked in the oven and saw mom made a meatloaf with all the trimmings. Hehe I love moms meatloaf. I looked and noticed it was about 5 so I decided to call Levi and see what he was up too.
The phone rang three times before anyone picked it up.
"Hello" said an adult male voice.
"H..hi...is Levi there?" I asked nervously. The man just laughed.
"Yes he is. You must be Trevor, he told us all about you. I cant' wait to meet you. You sound like a nice young man." He said laughing again. I just sighed to which he laughed more about. I also laughed.
"I try sir. Sometimes I don't think I quite there yet." I responded honestly.
"Wow a true honorable young man I like that. Well here is Levi." He said and handed his the phone.
"Hey" he said.
"Hi. I assume that was your dad?" I asked. I heard him giggle.
"Yeah sorry about that. He usually likes to know who I am making friends with." He replied with a sigh. Wow great parents. They will get along with mine.
"That's cool. At least by the way he sounds and what you told me they care an awful lot about you." I said.
"Yeah they do I love them a lot. So what's up?"
"Well I was just wondering what you were doing. My parents aren't home and I can't invite anyone over that they don't know. So hopefully you can meet my parents tomorrow." I said.
"That's cool I understand. Maybe you can come over and meet mine as well. Were about to eat. What about you?" I just had to laugh. "What's so funny?" he asked. I just giggled some more.
"I'm about to eat to, that all. We seem to be on the same time." This time we both laughed. "My mom has some meat loaf in the oven waiting on me. What are you having?"
"Spaghetti, salad and French bread." He replied.
"Cool man. Well I will let you go. Hey Levi do you want to come over here about 11 tomorrow morning?" I asked with hope in my voice.
"Yeah that will be cool. I can meet your parents then we can come over here and you can meet mine." He said.
"Yeah man that's plan. Can't wait." I said smiling.
"Me either. Well I better go moms calling me. Talk to you tomorrow." He said. It sounded like he was smiling.
"Yeah tomorrow." I replied we both hung up.
I ate my dinner at 6:30 and went and played on my computer for a while. I noticed my friend Greg online so I IMed him to see what's going on.
Rabbitboy: Hey G what's up?
HotGuy: Not much T what about you?
Rabbitboy: Nothing much. Just finished eating now just playing. I met a new boy today. His name is Levi. He is my age with dark brown hair and these puppy dog eyes.
HotGuy: Wow sounds nice. Hope things work out.
Rabbitboy: yeah me too. Well I got to go talk to you later
HotGuy: Ok then cool be good bye
I signed off. It was about 8:00 when my parents came back with my brother Roger from USC.
"Hey bro what's up?" Roger asked.
"Not much. How's school, work the girl?" I asked. He laughed.
"Everything's fine just fine, what about you. You find that special someone?" he asked.
"Hehe maybe, maybe not. Don't know it." I said smiling at him.
"Ok bro we're by ourselves. Mom and dad are in their room and were here in mine. So spill who is he?" Roger asked.
"He? I don't know what you are talking about" I said blushing and trying to get angry.
"Yeah, right" he said smiling. "Come on, Trev, I know you're gay. Hell we all know we are just waiting on you to say something. Then I come home and I see your eyes all shiny. So spill who is he?" He asked again.
WHAT. They know they ALL know. How can this be I can't believe it. I have been so careful. No it isn't true. I started crying. Then ran out of my bros room and into mine. I laid on my bed crying. Roger came in.
"Hey man come on. I didn't mean to upset you. I thought you knew we all knew." He said putting his hand on my back and rubbing in small circles.
"No I didn't know ya'll all knew. I figured ya'll would hate me for being a fag." I said still crying. My brother jerked me up right on the bed. Grabbed both of my arms and just looked at me.
"One thing RIGHT now. You are GAY. NOT a FAG. I HATE that word. For your information, Thomas Wingfired, one of my best friends since high school is gay. He is cool. I don't like that word. People use that to put other down. Do you understand me? You are a good young man, you should not put your self down for NO reason ok." He said half way through he pulled me into a hug. I just hugged him back.
"Ok" I said. I looked up and saw my mom and dad in the doorway smiling at us. I got up and gave them a hug also.
"Ok so who is the young man who stole your heart?" my dad asked. I just blushed.
"I meet him today, he moved here a few weeks ago and he lives right behind us. His name is Levi." I said smiling.
Meanwhile at Levi's house. Levi was getting ready for bed.
"So son like this city and neighborhood better?" my dad asked.
"Yes sir. I still feel sorry about us having to move" I said looking down at the floor. My dad got up and came up to me and made me look at him.
"Son we're not, there were too many bigots there as it was. We needed to leave anyways. So you like Trevor." My dad asked I just blushed and nodded my head.
"Yes sir I do. He is handsome and nice I really like him. I just don't want him to find out about me and hate me. Plus the school..."I said trailing off looking at the floor again.
"Son don't worry about the school. I have already talked with the principal and he knows your gay. He said that all students are welcomed and they don't preach on homosexuality. He said that he does not believe that God would create a person to be gay then leave them and not want them. Remember son, you are who you are, and we your mother and I love you very very much ok." My dad said hugging me. I nodded my head.
"Yes sir. Love you, good night." I said crawling under my covers.
"Goodnight son love you too." My dad turned off the light and shut the door. I started thinking about Trevor and how handsome he looks and us being friends. The last thing I saw in my head before sleep over took me, was Trevor holding my hand and putting his arm around my waist and slowly bringing me closer to his body then giving me a true first love kiss. I sighed and fell into a deep contented sleep.
I laid in bed and thought of Levi. He was handsome and so beautiful. I just wanted to hold him and make him feel special. As I drifted off to sleep I saw us standing by the lake holding hands and me pulling Levi to me and giving him a kiss. Not just any kiss, but the kind that says true love.
I want him to be my friend first then see if anything happens. I hope all goes well. I really do like him and I really do want him as my friend first, but I also pray that maybe just maybe we can get beyond that and hopefully in some way become more then friends. I really do think that Levi and I would make a good couple. Even Roger said he sounded like a good match for me even if he has yet to meet him.
Roger did tell me that he was proud of me for being me and not letting what others say affect me so much that I can't stand to be around anyone. He was afraid I would try and hibernate.
I don't think so. I can't see my self-doing that and I really do want to have as normal a life as I can.
God only knows the future not me or anyone else, but I have my faith and pray that he will let all things work out. For some reason I just feel that Levi and me are going to be great friends and maybe even boyfriends.
I'm tired now and I want to sleep. I am still seeing us holding hands and kissing and saying I love you's.
Those were my last thoughts as sleep claimed me.
