Odds against us
I'm thirteen years old, female, innocent, and a completely well-behaved, straight A daughter. And I have fallen in love with a girl who lives hundreds of miles away.
You may say that I'm young, confused, and just experimenting with my sexuality, but I'm really not. My whole heart belongs to my girlfriend, and I think that it always will. I can't see myself with anyone but her, EVER. I may seem stupid for saying that I feel like I'll be with her forever, but it's the truth. She's confessed the same to me, and we're detirmined to make it work.
But... How can we? So many odds are stacked against us. Our young ages prevent people from taking us seriously, or letting us visit each other. The fact we're both girls makes it impossible to tell our parents and most of our friends. The distance makes it even harder, because I never get to see her in person, only over video chat. I feel like this relationship is impossible to carry on... Yet I never want to end it!
I'm so torn and confused right now; I'm trying to figure out how we can keep our secret and still love each other fully. I want to hug her and kiss her every day, but I can't. My friends that know tell me to give up on her, that I should date a boy at my school and forget about her. I can't listen to myself, or my friends, or really anyone. I want to continue to love her, but everything is screaming at me that I'll fail.
What do you think? And do you know any ways I can make this work?
