He and i intended to keep it secret. no one needed to know just then. we just wanted to enjoy ourselves. a few select friends knew, of course, but not one adult in our lives knew until... it happened. His mother was snooping around and found us out. she immediately struck us a deal we couldn't squirm out of. either i tell my parents by monday or she tells. it was like a ransom. "Leave 3000000 unmarked bills in a plain paper bag outside my door, or your precious little secret gets out." i couldn't bring myself to tell my parents more than i could bring myself to give her the 3000000. I just couldn't muster the guts, knowing that a possible outcome was me being forced to terminate contact with the boy i loved. i just couldn't. call me chicken, but you hadn't met my parents. they were strictly "no dating until you're sixteen" and here i was, totally NOT sixteen, dating right under their noses. i just couldn't. i felt like i had been condemned to death.

I have been many places, seen many things, been many things as well, but what I shall never stop being, is a writer, a traveler of dreams and the human soul. My name is none of your concern. Call me anything or nothing; I may not answer to anything, or answer to everything.
