Synopsis:This is my story, a story that I've wanted to tell to the masses for a long time. The story is of a boy, who from a young age, was pushed around and bullied by what seemed like everyone, for one thing or another. The boy's name is Michael, and it seems like he can't do anything right. He doesn't listen to the right music, or hang out with the right people. His father lets him know this on a daily basis. When entering the hell that is public high-school, the tormenting is magnified. Michael dates girls, has sex, hangs out with his friends, drinks under-age and does everything a typical high-school boy does. He does all this to deal with the constant reminder than he isn't like everyone else, he has feelings for the same sex, as well as opposite. Everyday it effects him, because no matter what he does, there seems to be a neon, blinking light over his head that screams "I'M GAY! TORMENT ME, PLEASE!" After several punches and kicks against the wall in the bathroom, delivered personally by jocks and other "macho" guys, he's at his whit's end; he can't take it anymore. "What is there to live for? I can't come out, I don't want to come out, I don't even want to be like this!" His good friend, Josey, and himself sit on his porch one day, smoking something his mother would have frowned upon. It kicks in, quickly. The mixture of this and the alcohol that he would consume leads him to the one, final conclusion he can come to to fix everything. Why live anymore if this is all I'm worth? After almost committing suicide, he lives his life day to day, trying to find a silver lining.
At the age of 20, Michael gets a job as a Technical Service Rep at a call center, in which he is quickly promoted from. This is where he meets Trey. Trey is the best friend a guy could ask for. He's fun to be around, easy to joke with and an all around great guy. But there's something about Trey that's different from Michael's other guy-friends. It's not long before Trey tells Michael that he has feelings for him. Michael doesn't know what to do. This has never happened before. He's never been put in this situation. His instincts take over, and Michael pushes Trey away. But only for a short while. The two become a couple, living together and being happy. Michael tells his mother about Trey, and she is surprisingly understanding after a brief bout of crying. His father, of course, shoo's him out of the doorway, not wanting to speak to him again.
Michael and Trey get engaged on their one year anniversary, in the very spot where Michael let Trey know that he had feelings for him. They go on to be live a nice, successful life, hoping for children and infinite happiness.
