Telling Someone

"We are so sorry for your lose Colleen. All fo your teachers have given you resonable amounts of time to turn in the work you missed and catch up on tests."

"Yes, thank you." Colleen said quietly. She was sitting in and overstuffed chair in the counselors office. After about 30 minutes of her 1st class she had bee called down there. The counselor had now repeated herself a couple hundred times about if she ever needed anything blah... blah... blah.

"Okay, so I guess you should head back to your class." Colleen nodded and started to leave, but the counselor stopped her.

"Colleen? Tell your dad if he needs to talk I'm here for him too." The counselor said with a small smile.

Colleen glanced down at the counselors left hand. Figures... Since being back at school she has had 2 of her teachers and 1 student, besides the counselor, who were single and told her to tell her dad that they would "be there for him." Why did I ever let him inside this school? Collen rolled her eyes and left the office.

After a long day of appologies and concern, Colleen was ready to go to rehersals. She had missed alot already but was going to try hard to catch up.

"Hey Johnathan."

"I talked to Mr. Martin, he said that we can turn in our project whenever we finish." Johnathan informed Colleen when her caught up with her.

"Project...? Oh right, okay that's good. Do you wanna start this weekend? I have rehersals all this week." The two continued down the hall as Johnathan continued.

"I know, so do I. I got the part of Berger."

"I didn't know you could act...or sing." Colleen said with a laugh.

"Haha yeah, well I guess Mr. Peterson liked my "dancing on tables" skills."

"You should talk to Mark abou that, he might be able to give you a few tips."

"What?" Asked Johnathan confused.

"Oh nothing. When you come over this weekend you will get to meet him."

"Uh...okay. Come on we need to hurry up or we will be late." Johnathan quickened his pace and pulled Colleen behind him.


After rehersals Johnathan walked to the subway with Colleen.

"You are a really great actress." he complimented her.

"Thanks, you too!" After a unsteady silence Johnathan took a deep breath.

"Umm... if you don't mind me asking, what did your mom die of?" he asked quietly. Colleen's breath quickened for a couple seconds while she thought to herself. Do I tell him? It's nothing I should be ashamed of...COME ON COLLEEN just tell him, he asked nicely.

"Well...er...it was a combination of things. Like exhausten and uh... AIDS."

"Oh...wow." Johnathan ran his hand through his hair.

"Yeah... but at least now she is in a better place and hopefully it will make my dad be more careful."

"Your dad is sick?" Colleen nodded.

"Yeah, he is HIV positive...like mm- other people I know." Silence followed her last statement. Oh God that was close. You're such an idiot, you almost told him you had it. He probably thinks my whole family is screwed up and will tell the whole school!

"Colleen?" Johnathan's voice jolted her out of her thoughts, "I just want you to know, I won't tell anyone, okay? My Uncle died of AIDS a couple years ago so if you ever ant to talk, I'm here to listen," she nodded, "My Uncle and I were really close.People in my family didn't really like him because of his lifestyle, but he was really nice and could play a mean set of drums."

"Thanks cool. I'm sorry for your loss. Sorry, but I need to catch my train. I'll see you later."

"Bye!" Colleen smiled at him as she grabbed a seat and the train pulled away.
