Alec wasn’t entirely sure what to do. He had tired everything to please his father. Be active in all sorts of sports, boxing, basketball…whatever it was his dad mentioned wanting to see him in. He had exhausted himself once enough to end up in the hospital. His father had made fun of him for it. Apparently he wasn’t manly enough. Even at twenty and in Uni, he was trying to please his dad…he was even scared of him.
He was supposed to be meeting up with a friend, but he was running late. Why? His father had questioned a comment he had made with his mother…a comment about an actor’s looks. His parents had no idea he was gay. He had slipped up making the comment…and he had paid the price for it. His cheek still ached from the back hand, his lip split. Hands shoved into the pocket of hid hoodie, he walked up to his friend, keeping his head down. “Hey, sorry I’m late.”
