This is true for Lindsey Anderson, who has been keeping her sexual orientation a secret from her very conservative parents for as long as she can remember.

My life is pretty ordinary, I’m a senior in high school and I live with my dad, who’s a priest at St. Mary’s, which is our local church here in Charleston, South Carolina, and my mom, who is a full-time elementary school teacher and a Sunday school teacher on Sundays. My life is pretty normal, but I do have a secret, I’m a lesbian and have known for a while. Unfortunately my parents have no idea and for now, I want to keep it that way because being a very conservative family, my parents consider being gay or lesbian as a sin and a disgrace to God. Anyway, life is great, but unfortunately it always comes tumbling down because keeping a secret like mine is extremely difficult, especially when I start to spend a lot of time with the girl in school and my parents start to notice and start asking questions. What do I tell them? I’m dating the new girl? Hell no. Instead, I lie and say we’re in the same study group, this works for a while, but nothing lasts forever.

Anyway, the story that I’m about to tell you will explain what I went through while being a lesbian in secret and how I came out of the closet and everything that happened after that. But for now, let me explain what happened before and then I’ll get to the after.

Melody Dawn Carman Libby: I really like the plot, but the grammar mistakes kill me. The wrong word are used at times and MINES are underground bombs. The correct way to show ownership is to use MINE…Jordan is mine…. She is mine…. Not mines. I would be happy to edit your story if you need some help. 🤗
