Bluegrass Boys #2
Being a baseball star has always been my identity, until that kiss hit me like a freight train.
Rusty: I’ve ignored and denied being gay my whole life. Being from a small country town in Kentucky, being gay was not an option. The boys in the locker room would have made my life a living hell, and I was team captain. But something happened over the summer that woke me up and I knew I owed it to myself to discover the truth. That’s when my new roommate walked into our dorm room, and I knew. I tried to resist my feelings for him, but one kiss has led to more than I ever dreamed of.
Now my entire life is up in the air and I’m not sure I have the courage to be my honest self.
He was dressed in cosplay as my favorite super-hero, when he gave me my very first kiss.
Matt: I came to college to escape the fear and ridicule of my past. Here I could grow into the strong gay man I had always dreamed about. College was my chance to finally be me. Then I met my roommate. A jock. The star of the baseball team. The kind of guy who made my adolescent life hell. He is so hot I’m unsure how I can even stand to live with him. I go to the LGBT back to school dance and met someone dressed in cosplay as my favorite comic book character. He kissed me that night and I never even found out his name, but he seems so familiar. My mind is spinning and Rusty is only making it worse. Clothes repel from his body as soon as he enters the room. I’m falling for the kind of guy I wanted to escape.
If he won't step out into the light with me, how can we ever have a future?
