My parents had warned me a relationship would be a disaster for my gymnastics career, threatening to pull their financial support. So, I floated from one guy to the next for years.
And now, at the biggest event of my life, I found myself lonely and wanting more. And the one guy I wanted it with was Cam.
He went to the same college. He was on the same team. Just not my team.

Here I was, my first Olympics and all I could think about was sex. My first and only time was terrible to say the least and I was hesitant to try again. Hell, I wasn't even out of the closet either.

The other guys finished too, and were toweling off nearby. Our outfits for the presser were hanging by our lockers.
“This means we can stop pretending like we don’t know, right?” Graham asked.

We hadn’t discussed it, but clearly, Luke had no problem letting them know about us. It was becoming clearer that they already knew. What was the point of hiding anymore with them? It was probably better for them to know, anyway.
“Uh, yeah, Graham. I’m with Luke. We’re together. Like...a couple.”COLLAPSE
