Confessions are scary

I came out as bi to my parents this evening, told them I had a girlfriend and everything. (HA! Take that, riverrants! And you thought I wouldn't do it!)

It was scary as shit.

Mum got kind of upset and cried and stuff, and kept saying "I don't know what to say" or some variation thereof. Dad... was much more okay with it, it seemed. I love my dad.

Dad: *walks in on Mum and I in my room, both crying* What's wrong?
Me: Um, I have a girlfriend. I'm bi.
Dad: You're saying you're bisexual?
Me: Uh, yeah.
Dad: Okay. *long pause* Come here and give me a hug.

Also, I mentioned that Leah really doesn't have anywhere but our house or the airport to stay when she gets back before school and he said, "So it's not just a big ploy, then?" Then he laughed when I giggled and told him that no, it isn't.

So I guess it went okay. But it still scared the shit out of me.

Maybe now I'll be able to write again, and I'll actually get those giftfics done. Sorry I haven't finished them yet, guys, but I haven't been able to concentrate lately, and I think it was because I was so nervous about coming out to Mum and Dad. I think I'll be able to write now, though.

But gods, I'm glad that's over with.
