Request: Can you do one where you’re bi and absolutely scared to tell them? and like an ex comes up or a girl hits on you and you freak out :)
I changed the request slightly for this one (and Luke’s) if that’s okay :)
“I know you’re nervous about meeting my parents today Cal, but you’ll do absolutely fine.” You assure
“I just don’t want to fuck it up. I love you and I want them to see that, but you know what I’m like. I’ll probably say something stupid and mess it up. I always do” He shrugs
“You never do! Okay, so sometimes you lack awareness, but you normally save yourself pretty quickly. Just don’t panic, okay?” You say, hugging him.
“Thanks.” He mumbles
“Right well, are you ready?” You ask him
He takes a deep breath, “Yeah. Okay. Let’s go.”
You both step out of your car and approach the door to your family home. You don’t have to knock, so you just walk right in. You lead Calum straight into the living room, where you know your dad will be sitting watching the TV.
“Hey Dad!” You smile
He smiles back and stands up to greet you, “Hey, pumpkin, are you okay?”
You nod, “Yeah! Erm, Dad, this is Calum!”
Your dad smiles and goes straight over to him.
“Hi Calum, it’s nice to meet you. We’ve heard so much about you!” He says as they shake hands “Call me Paul, by the way”
“Nice to meet you too Paul” Calum says formally
“Where’s mum?” You ask your dad
“She’s upstairs, sorting the washing out. I’ll go shout on her” Your dad smiles “Excuse me”
He heads towards the bottom of the stairs and calls for your mum, who says she’ll be down in a minute.
“You’re doing fine” You whisper to Calum
“So, err, Calum, I hear you’re into soccer, right?” Your dad asks him
“Yeah, yeah. I love it. I, err, trained in Brazil a few years ago” Calum answers
“Oh you did?” Your dad smiles “That’s incredible. There’s actually a game on TV right now, so I thought we could pop that on, unless (Y/N) has any objections”
“I’ve got no objections to that whatsoever. Put it on!” You encourage, glad that your dad is trying to take an interest in something Calum is interested in, even though your dad doesn’t know anything about soccer.
As the two of them sit down to watch the game, your mum comes bouncing into the room.
“Hi everyone” She beams
“Hi mum” You smile back “Mum, this is Calum. Calum this is my Mum, Irene”
Calum stands up to greet her, but as he does your mum speaks up.
“Oh so it really is a guy this time!” She calls
Your eyes widen and she instantly realises her mistake. The last person you brought home to meet your parents was a girl - your ex-girlfriend. Except Calum doesn’t know this because you always thought he wouldn’t understand bisexuality. You weren’t utterly convinced he believed it was actually a thing.
“E-e-erm, yeah” He stutters, as he hugs your mum.
“Sorry” Your mum mouths over his shoulder.
“Thanks guys, see you next time” Calum calls to your parents as you leave the house
You got into the car, started it up, and drove off.
“Erm, (Y/N)?” Calum questions
“What did your mum mean when she said that I was actually a guy this time?” He asks
You sigh, “I was going to tell you soon, when I was sure it was the right time.”
“Okay. Well what is it?”
“Calum, I’m bisexual” You state
“O-okay” He replies “That’s cool”
“You don’t really think that” you object
“No, I do. I just - I’m in shock. Like you never told me and I never…I never would have guessed-”
“You can’t judge someone’s sexuality by how they act Calum, because you could be wrong” You interrupt
“No, I know. It’s just you’ve never told me anything about your exes - not male or female, and it’s not as if you’ve ever checked a girl out or something” He explains “So, why didn’t you tell me?”
You shrug, “Well, I just thought you were one of those people who didn’t believe in bisexuality”
You see him furrow his eyebrows out of the corner of your eye, “What the fuck are you talking about? Who? What? I don’t get it”
“Get what?” You snap; you really want clarification right now.
“I don’t get how you can not believe in bisexuality. It’s a sexuality, the same as being straight or homosexual is. People who don’t believe it are fucking stupid and could do with a reality check” He tuts
You smile to yourself, “So maybes I got you all wrong, Calum. I’m sorry for misjudging and underestimating you. And I’m sorry for not telling you sooner”
He shrugs, “Aah it doesn’t matter. I know now. Just know that I love you all the same an that nothing could ever change that fact”
“Thanks Calum” You smile
“No problem, princess”
