Luke fidgeted, still avoiding my gaze. “I could have been suspended. I got detention instead. Because, uh.”
The moment felt solemn. I’d never seen the big man on campus act less than totally confident and self-assured. I waited with bated breath, almost afraid I would pass out. That’s how long it took him to speak again.
Finally, the wait ended.
“I told them I’m gay.”
The solemn mood evaporated. I burst out laughing. He looked annoyed at my outburst, but this was the most hilarious thing I’d ever heard. I couldn’t stop giggling.
“I also said we’re dating,” Luke told me next.
That shut me up.
