Synopsis

Author Notes

The bit with the waiter at the end was tacked on kinda last minute. I really didn't want the story to get too heavy this early in the chapter, so I just needed something to lighten the mood a little after Maria's mini speech on the second page. Stays relevant too. XD

Still, the serious stuff on the second page just begs reader input. So I'd love to hear your thoughts on either or both girls' opinions. To any readers who may be or have been (or would like to be) in same-sex relationships, are you very open about it when in public, or do you prefer to keep things quiet?

Transcript

I hope you don't mind that it's just a cheap place like this. It's better than fast food, but not much. My parents are pretty stingy about allowance.
Don't worry. I'm fine just doing something like this with you. Just us. All romantic and stuff.
And "stuff"?
S-stuff is romantic. Okay, I don't know what I'm talking about anymore.
Hee hee.
Maybe this sounds weird, but I'm pretty glad you're as nervous as I am.
I'm not ner - Maybe a little.
Do you think anyone can tell we're a couple?
Well, we don't look related. Maybe they think we're just friends?
Does that bother you at all?
Yes and no.
I do wish we lived in a world where I could say I was dating a girl and not have to worry about being sent to a supposedly gay-curing camp by my father.
But since that's not our world, there is some comfort to me in not letting people know and just blending. It sucks to have to pretend to be something I'm not - it really is the last thing I want - but at least no one's judging me like this.
They're still judging. That's how people are.
Good evening, ladies. May I take your - whoa! Did Halloween come early this year?
