Set up: Sarah’s been dating Angel for weeks now and still has not come clean about her best friend back home being a boy. She’s just told her cousin about Angel thinking her best friend is a girl.
“Sarah Lynn!” Her tone was reminiscent of Sarah’s childhood, when she’d been caught being bad. ”Please tell me you’re kidding.”
Sarah covered her face with her hands and groaned. “I’m not.”
She brought her arms down, crossing them over her knees, leaning her head against them. She looked at Valerie who was still staring at her shaking her head and shrugged. “He assumed Sydney was a girl when I told him about my best friend and I just let him go with that. It didn’t seem so bad at first, but then when we were in Old Town that first weekend he told me he didn’t believe guys and girls could be friends.”
Sarah nodded. “Yeah, and he was pretty adamant about it.”
“Not surprising. I’d expect nothing less from a Moreno,” Valerie said. “So, what are you gonna do when he finds out Sydney’s a guy?”
Sarah put her legs back down on the side of the bed and sat up straight slipping her hands under her thighs. “That’s just the thing.” She chewed her lip. “How’s he gonna find out?”
