My name is Joey Wheeler and for fifteen years I have been hiding a secret from my family and friends that could either make my family and friends hate me. What is my secret you ask? I'm gay. Yes that's what I said, gay. This is my story…..
All of my life I knew that I was different, but I was so damn afraid to acknowledge what it was. My parents love me and my sister Serenity and I know that if they found out what I was afraid to believe what was wrong with me they'd hate me and I couldn't live with that feeling, so I kept my mouth closed and tried to live what you would say was a normal life.
There is only one other person who knows my secret and that is Mai Valentine. She is one really hot babe. We have always pretended that we were a couple even if we weren't. You see Mai is a lesbian and that's cool with me.
So as I said I've tried to be like one of the boys and keep anyone from finding out. Yugi, Tristan, Duke and I have been friends since we were in grade school and they are the best. I'm on the basketball team, I play baseball and I'm even on the Domino High Swim Team. So you see I'm really trying to be just one of the boys.
One person that I don't get along with, hell no one does and that is Seto Kaiba. He acts like his shit don't stink, but his farts give him away as my grandma use to say. He is the CEO of Kaiba Corp and has a younger brother Mokuba. He acts so superior to everyone else when deep down he's just like us, scared of what the future hold.
I don't know how long I can live like this. It's killing me and what I'm afraid of is slipping up and the whole world will know and condemn me. I've heard all the old cliques about people being "gay". Like if they get religion then they will change, or slap the "gay" out of them. Well guess what? It don't work that way.
One day while I was helping to fix dinner, my mom turned to me and she said "what do you want to do with your life?"
She took me by surprise and I almost said "be myself" but I didn't. I didn't know what to tell her. She kissed me and said "you have your entire life to decide." I almost broke down and told her the truth right then and there, but I didn't.
God, I'm so sick of living this way. How do I tell them who I really am? I wish there was someway to let them know without really coming out and saying it. But how?
