“Are you ashamed of me?”
Connor’s hurt, angry words still echoed in Lester’s thoughts.
He loved Connor. He was proud of him, and of everything he had achieved.
“Then why won’t you tell anyone that we’re together?”
Lester wished he could explain that things were different for his generation. That coming out wasn’t so simple for him. That he feared it would damage his career, and his public image.
He didn’t say any of that, though, because he was afraid that Connor wouldn’t understand.
He was even more afraid that one day Connor would ask him to choose.
