Hunter and Holden Smiths Corner Six
If I didn’t flaunt my gayness, then my parents pretended I was normal, whatever the fuck they thought that meant. The last four years, since I’d turned fourteen, had shown me that their reputations came before anything, including loving their child.

Dread curled deep in my stomach as I knocked on the door to my father’s office and pushed it open. I’d expected the summons after seeing my picture on social media the day before. A picture of me with my current boyfriend, Gray, kissing. I’d been unaware anyone had been taking pictures at the high school graduation party two days before. The hope that my family wouldn’t see it had been shattered when I’d gotten the call from Rita, my father’s personal assistant. She’d given me the heads-up about how angry he was, which was why my dread right now was at epic proportions.
If I didn’t flaunt my gayness, then my parents pretended I was normal, whatever the fuck they thought that meant. The last four years, since I’d turned fourteen, had shown me that their reputations came before anything, including loving their child. My father had always been reserved and cold toward me. He’d been that way even before he’d discovered I was gay, but never once did I doubt that he loved me.
That was my first mistake. Love in this family came with strings attached and those strings could choke the life right out of me if I let them. The strength of character my father had instilled in me as a child had worked in my favor, and against him. I’d not bowed to his demands, and I had the feeling today was a day of reckoning between us. My mother had given me a look of pity when I’d come into the house. The same look she’d given me many times before when she’d done fuck-all to defend me after my father decided I’d done something to sully the Taylor name.
