Gerard comes to terms with his feelings and confesses to two people. Who will it be? And do they have a secret of their own?
Both families walked along the path. The had finished their meals and were going to the holiday club now. They wanted some entertainment. Gerard had been keeping his distance from Frank. Frank was getting suspicious and planned to confront him about it later.
They walked in and found a table. They all sat down, Gerard and Frank next to each other as usual. They were inseperable. Gerard could feel his body squished up against Franks and shifted nervously. Frank noticed and whispered into his ear "Gerard what the hell is wrong with you today!?"
"I don't know, you've just been acting weird since I made that joke in the room earlier..."
"Honestly it's nothing! Jheeze give it a rest would ya!?" Gerard stood up, grabbed Mikey by the hand and pulled him outside.
"What do you want Gerard!?" Mikey snapped.
"Gerard are you crying?"
"No" Gerard shook his head and sniffled. "There's something I need to tell you. I think... I think I'm... I'm"
"Spit it out!"
"I'm gay Mikey! I'm gay" Gerard covered his face and cried hard.
"Oh my god Gerard" Mikey hugged his brother tightly "Shhh you don't need to cry. I'm not gonna judge you! Come on, let's go back to the caravan and talk?"
"O-okay" Gerard replied.
They walked back to the caravan, Mikey opened the door and sat down on the sofa. He patted the space next to him for Gerard to sit at. Gerard did just that.
"So what made you realise it?" Mikey questioned
"Well I uhh... I fancy a guy"
"And is this guy Frank by any chance?"
"Mhm" Gerard nodded slowly as tears rolled down his face. "When I see him I just wanna attach my lips to his. Touch him. Wrap him in my arms and never let go"
"Woaaaah Gerard! Remember I am only 13! As much as I'm fine with you being gay please don't tell me about your little fantasies!"
They both laughed "Sorry Mikes. You know, you always cheer me up!"
"Glad to of assistance! After all you are my older brother. And if this makes you even better, last month when we went swimming I kept catching Frank checking you out!"
"No I'm honestly not! Don't believe me then, you'll be the one missing out"
"But what should I do Mikey?"
"Grow some balls and ask him out maybe!?" Mikey got up, said goodbye and walked back out the door leaving Gerard on his own. He smashed his head back against the wall. Mikeys last words kept replaying in Gerards head.
I kept catching Frank checking you out
Grow some balls and ask him out maybe!?
I kept catching Frank checking you out
Gerard slowly cried himself to sleep. He wanted to be able to walk around with Frank, hand in hand and call him his. He wanted to be able to feel Franks plump pink lips against his own and be able to touch every inch of his body. He wanted to be able to wake up in the morning and see Frank lying next to him. He wanted to be able to hold him in his arms and tell him he loved him. But mostly he longed to know the truth. To know whether Frank felt the same, and sooner or later he was gonna have to do something about it.
About and hour later the Way and Iero families stumbled through the door. All but Frank and Mikey were drunk. Gerard and Mikey asssisted their parents to their bedroom and Frank did the same for his. When they were done they went into their own room, Gerard flopped down on the bed and let out a deep sigh. Frank sat next to him.
"Gerard what's wrong?"
"I dunno, I've just got a lot going on. Sorry for being such a prick earlier"
"That's okay but seriously tell me what's going on in that pretty little head of yours?"
"Well... If I tell you promise not to freak or run out?"
"Promise!" Frank smiled genuinely.
"I'm... I'm gay!" Gerard quickly covered up his face so he couldn't see Franks reaction. But after getting no reply he dared to look at him. And to Gerards shock, Frank sat looking at him with a massive grin on his face. "Why do you look so happy about it?"
"I uh... Um... I'm just glad you could trust me with something like that! And I think now would be the perfect time to tell you that I'm bisexual" When Frank said this, Gerard mentally jumped for joy and hugged him. The two boys stayed like that for a few minutes.
"Gerard I need to ask you som- Oh." Mikey burst in. "Um what's going on here?"
"I just told Frank I'm gay"
"And I just told Gerard that I'm bisexual"
"AAAAAAHHHHH! I'M SURROUNDED BY HOMOS!" Mikey screamed, running for the door. But then he stopped and turned around. "Nah I'm just kidding, I fully support you guys. And I'm happy for you both!" He smirked at Gerard before leaving the room.
"Okay well I'm going to sleep now. Seeya in the morning, maybe tomorrow will be a better day because it will be our first proper day here and we're not keeping our secrets from eachother anymore" Frank said before poking Gerards cheek and jumping into his own bed.
"Yeah night!" Gerard couldn't help but feel guilty. He hadn't told Frank everything had he?
Gerard waited til he was sure Frank was fast asleep. He reached under his bed and pulled out his sketch book. He flipped to his last drawing. He sighed in content when he looked at it. Frank was bisexual, which meant there was more possibilty of his drawing coming true...
That night both boys fell asleep with huge smiles on their faces.
