How did we end up like this under a burning sky? Some things are
better left unsaid. It's easier to lie. I'm burning, but my heart is on the wire.
Don't need a thousand guards to lock me in. Doesn't take a fool to start a fire.
Solitary spark and wars begin. How did it all come to this?
We stared off as friends. It makes it easy to leave
If we're strangers by the end. You say it's only words.
And that it will get easier with time. Nothing's only words.
It doesn't matter if they're yours or mine. That's how hearts get hurt.
Teagan's whole life people have been telling her that homosexuality is a sin. She didn't believe it was. She always knew she was different, but sometimes she would just do things to please her family. She didn't want them looking down on her, but the moment that she knew she wasn't into men, she had a really hard choice to make. Either please her family, or please herself. For once in her life she was going to make herself happy. She told her family that she wasn't into men, and at first they didn't believe her. They said she was just dealing with a lot cause of college coming up, and she would realize she was talking crazy when classes started.
That had been the night Your Name Here had gotten kicked out of her own home. She told her mother the same thing. She had been dating a male from High School, but she didn't want to put on the mask anymore. She told her mother, and her mother kicked her out then and there. Your Name Here had a really close friend, that knew Teagan as well. This friend was trying her hardest to get Teagan and Your Name Here to go out with each other for months. Neither of them wanted too, but now it was like Fate was stepping in, and showing them their path. Your Name Here called up Diana and was going to crash on her couch for the night. Not knowing that across town Teagan was packing up her things as well.
Teagan wasn't going to stand there and let her family talk down to her. She told them straight up that she was lesbian, and they didn't want to believe her. That was when she decided to move out. She didn't really have a place to go, besides Diana's house. While she was packing up her things, she called Diana in tears. Diana agreed to let her crash at her place, and then Diana's plan was rolling. When Teagan shows up and Your Name Here answers the door, is when something clicks in both of their minds. They don't really say anything at first, until Diana is in the room, and looking them both in the eyes, and tapping her foot. This was like a dream come true for Diana. For the other two, it was like a nightmare.
Your Name Here was the first to break the ice and ask what was going on. Diana told them, that it was time they realized their true feelings. They needed to work on things between themselves, and Diana was leaving for the week. She had her things packed, and a list of things for the two to do while she was gone. The moment she was gone, was when they both looked at one another, and both went into different rooms. Because Diana was gone, Teagan took her room, and Your Name Here took the guest room. It was really awkward, because the two had been eyeing each other on campus, but because Teagan came from money, she was a so called snob. Your Name Here came from the wrong side of the tracks and was a so called poor man's daughter.
Now that they are in the same house, they have no choice but to get to know each other. They both have jobs, and they both still go to college, so that's something to be thankful for. That night when neither of them could really sleep, was when they decided to sit down and talk to each other. What'll happen when they really get to know each other? Will they test the waters of a relationship and prove their families wrong? Or will they end up finding someone else in the end? You'll never know unless you join Simple Desires.
The cast of Simple Desires.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "Teagan, I need you to come into the kitchen please"] the sound of her father's voice reaching her ears. She bit the inside of her cheek, as she pushed herself up and to her feet. That's not a good sign. She made her way to the kitchen from the living room, and she spotted her parents at the table. [#FFBBBB "Yes daddy?"] she asked when she walked in. The male looked up and crossed his arms over his chest, locking his eyes on his daughters. The silence was getting to her, and she didn't like it.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "Your mother and I have been talking. We both feel like it's time you either start dating the man we chose for you, or you need to start talking and tell us what you want to do with your life. We are getting tired of you sitting around the house and moping"] the male snapped. That seemed to sting a little bit. Teagan hadn't heard her father use that kind of tone with her. She moved over to a chair and she sat down. [#FFBBBB "I don't know what you want me to say"] she admitted.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [i "Are you dating anyone right now Teagan? Or are you just wanting to enjoy the single life? Your father and I want nothing but the best for you"] her mother said lightly. Teagan sighed a little bit. It was time she came clean. She didn't want it playing out like this, but what other choice did she have? She took a breath and started talking. [#FFBBBB "Momma, daddy I have something to tell you, and I honestly don't know how to put it all into words. I don't want you hating me though"] she said lightly.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When neither of her parents spoke, that gave her the green light. She took a breath and started talking once more. [#FFBBBB "I'm not dating anyone, because I haven't found the right girl for me.. I know you've taught me that homosexuality is a sin, but I don't see it like that. I see it as loving someone for who they are. I'm not straight like you thought I was. I'm a lesbian"] she said. She looked between her parents, and her father was the first one to break the silence.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "No child of mine will be into the same sex as themselves. You need to get a bag, and leave. Right now"] he said. The anger in his voice, and the look in his eyes scared the woman a little bit. She looked towards her mother, and her mother shook her head. [i "I have to agree with your father."] she said her voice cracking. Teagan stood, and put her hands onto the table, looking at both of her parents. [#FFBBBB "I hope you both are happy with yourselves"] she hissed, before turning on her heel and storming out.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She went straight to her bedroom, slammed her door closed and grabbed her duffle bag out of the closet. She heard her phone buzzing, and she walked over to the dresser where it was charging. [b [i Gan! Come on, it's time we get out dance on! Make sure you have your sexy dress, cause we are going to a homosexual bar!]] the message read. Teagan shook her head lightly, as she unplugged the phone from the charger and started typing away. [#FFBBBB [i It's like your read my mind. I need to talk to you though first.]] was all she sent.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She grabbed her charger from the wall, tore open her dresser drawers and started throwing her clothes into her duffle bag. She then found her suitcase, and started packing that up as well. What other choice did she have? She bit the inside of her cheek, trying not to break out into tears. Her parents pretty much disowned her, and that hurt more than anything. She wanted nothing more than to talk to her mother about this, but her mother was against her too.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When she had everything packed up, she made sure her closet was cleaned out too. She then zipped up her bags, and grabbed her wallet. She made sure her bank card was inside, and she walked out of the room. Her mother was standing in the hallway, her hands folded. [i "Please don't be mad at me"] she breathed out. Teagan turned her eyes to her. [#FFBBBB "You were supposed to protect me, not throw me out. You no longer have a daughter"] she snapped, as she brushed past the older woman. Her heart breaking inside of her chest.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She made her way to her car, she then threw her things into the back of the car, and climbed in behind the wheel. She started the car and pulled out of the driveway. She then sent another message to Diana. [#FFBBBB [i I'm on my way over. I'll see you soon.]] was all she sent. She tossed her phone onto the seat beside her, and headed into town. A couple minutes later she pulled up to Diana's house, and she shut off the car and climbed out. She left her things in the car for the time being.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Diana was already standing there with open arms. [b [i "Oh sweetheart, whatever happened I'm sorry"]] she said wrapping Teagan into her arms. She then led the woman into the house, and closed the door. [b [i "I have another friend coming over, it's going to be a girls night"]] she said lightly. Teagan nodded a bit. [#FFBBBB "That's fine"] was all she said. She moved over to the couch, sat down, and the tears started to fall. She was homeless, and broken. Her own parents didn't want anything to do with her, and she didn't have anywhere else to go.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When she got herself under control a little bit, she looked towards Diana. [#FFBBBB "So who's this other friend of yours?"] she asked. Diana smirked a bit and shrugged. [b [i "You kind of know her, but not really. You'll like her though. She should be here soon"]] she said lightly. Sure enough the doorbell rang, and Diana went to answer it. Teagan took a breath, and looked up. Her breath caught in her throat at the sight of the other woman with Diana. She smiled lightly and stayed where she was.]]
It was a very long day. Callista ended up working super late. There was a lot of things that was going on. She working constantly, and she was avoiding her parents. She needed to tell them something. But that something that she needed to tell them... She knew it was going to end well at all. The only reason she knows this is because her mom ended up talking about homosexuality before. And was talking about how she would never accept anyone that is homosexual.
While Callista was working, and she texted her friend right away. Because she knew that her mom would kick her out. She wasn't for sure how her dad and brother would respond. Her brother has hinted at her before that he knew, but wasn't sure at the same time. She was terrified because she knew that she was going to lose her family. Callista sighed, and then she let her fingers glide across the keys.
[b Hey Diana - so. I'm probably going to need a place to crash until I can figure out where I'm going to go. Telling my parents tonight that I'm lesbian. And I already know that I'm going to get kicked out. Much love for you, dear.]
Callista put her phone back in her pocket, and finished out her shift. She closed up and then went home. She sat in her car for a little bit and then took in a deep breath. She bit on her lip, and then she saw her brother. She got out of the car and then ran up to him. "Well hello buttercup." He grinned at her big. "I know what you are about to do, Cal. I just want you to know that I love you. And I also want you to know that I'm gay. So I get where your coming from." Callista kind of just blinked, and looked at him, and then smiled real big. [b "I'm so happy for you! I'm sure mom don't know? If she don't know, no worries your secret is safe with me."] Callista would never tell her brother's secret. Especially after what was going to happen.
Callista and her brother walked in together. Callista sighed lightly as she saw her parents in the kitchen waiting for us. She saw her mom slightly glare at her. Callista knew this wasn't going to end well. At all. She watched her dad come up and hug her, and whisper in her ear. "I know love." Callista had to hold back all the tears. Her dad and her brother left the room, because she knew there was going to be a lot of screaming from her mother.
Callista gulped, and then looked at her mom once more. [b "Mom..."] She began, and then was rudely interrupted by her mom. "You don't need to say a word, Callista. I already know what you are going to say, and I don't accept it at all. Everyone may accept it, but I don't. You need to pack your stuff, and get the hell out of my house. And you can forget I was ever your mother." Callista didn't even get to fully tell her that she was homosexual, but somehow her mom already knew. Callista was wondering how her mother knew already. Was it that obvious?
Callista turned around and headed upstairs and grabbed her things. She already had stuff packed, because she just knew her mother very well. She heard a knock on the door, as Callista wiped her tears from her cheeks, she weakly said come in. She saw that it was her dad and brother. She looked at them and gulped. Her dad closed the door behind them. "Callie-Bug, no matter what - I will always love you. And I accept you for who you are." Her dad kissed her forehead, and then she nodded lightly. [b "That's all I need.. Is for you guys to accept me for me..."] She hugged both her brother and father. She just hoped things wouldn't end so bad between her mom and dad. She knew there would be lots of fighting. [b "I hope I didn't ruin yours and mom's marriage now.."] Her father shook his head fast. "It doesn't matter Callista. You are my daughter, you and your brother come before any type of marriage. She is losing a very great daughter." Callista smiled and looked at her brother. [b "Don't tell her..."]
Callista looked at her mother as she left the house. Her mother refused to looked at her. Callista sighed lightly, and then gulped lightly. She got in her car, and headed over to Diane's. The entire time that she was driving she was crying. Callista was feeling the tears run down her cheeks, and then sighed when she pulled up. She looked at the door, and grabbed her belongings, and then walked up to the door. She knocked on the door, and waited for Diane to answer the door.
"Hello sweetheart," and then she felt herself being pulled into a hug. Callista was still crying really hard, and then she looked up and saw another female and then couldn't help but stare at her. She knew her somehow. Diane grinned real big as she watched the interaction of the girls. Callista gulped lightly, her eyes never leaving the other females. Callista was still trying to figure out what was going on, and why she was there, but she wasn't going to be. [b "Well hello there."]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Teagan watched as Diana pulled the woman into her arms, and she saw the tears on the other's face and her heart went out to her. She couldn't help but wonder why she was crying. When the other had noticed her, she nodded a little bit. [#FFBBBB "Hello to you as well.."] she breathed out. Diana let Callista go and beamed. [b "Alright, I know I told you both you could crash here, which you can. I am about to head out on a date night with Nate though. So you two will be alone tonight"]]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "I just have the one spare bedroom, so you both are welcome to share it, because it does have a nice king sized bed. Just don't step foot into my room and I'll be happy"] she said as she clapped her hands together. She looked between the two of them, and couldn't help but smile. [b "Get to know one another, and you both are more than welcome to stay as long as you need"] she said as she hugged Callista, and then went and hugged Teagan, and made her way into her room leaving the other two alone.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Teagan was wanting to kill Diana. Was she trying to play match maker or something? She didn't really know, but she didn't care either. She took in the sight of the other woman, and realized how beautiful she was. Maybe this was a good thing. She shifted a little on the couch making room for the other. [#FFBBBB "You are more than welcome to sit here if you'd like"] she said in a small voice. She was nervous, and yet she didn't fully understand why she was. She was still silently killing Diana in her head.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#FFBBBB "I don't know what her deal is, but I'm more than willing to share the spare bedroom if you are. Also my name's Teagan"] she said with a small smile. She placed her hands into her lap, and started playing with her fingers. It was a nervous habit that she always did, and she was getting more and more nervous the longer the other woman didn't say anything. She was curious as to why she was crying though. She looked down at her hands in her lap, when she heard Diana come back out.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "There's some spare cash in the cookie jar for you both to use tonight. Order something in. I won't be home till tomorrow, and then I'll be leaving once more tomorrow afternoon. So please keep the house clean as well"] she said as she slipped her bracelet on her wrist. [b "You both need each other right now, you might not know it, but it's a good thing you both are here. I love you guys, and I'll see you tomorrow"] she said as she grabbed her purse and was out the door, fully leaving them alone.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Teagan shook her head lightly as she looked at the closed door. [#FFBBBB "I don't know about her.."] she said with a small laugh. She then turned her eyes back to Callista, and her heart seemed to skip a beat. [#FFBBBB "Well, seeing as you and I are officially alone, is everything okay? Why were you crying? If you don't want to talk about it, I'll understand.. We can go and get some booze and pizza and just chill if you want"] she said in a rush. She was nervous, and she talked a lot more when that happened.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#FFBBBB "I'm sorry if I'm prying into something that's none of my business.. I just don't like seeing beautiful women crying"] she said with a sheepish smile. She then felt her cheeks turning a small shade of pink, as she looked away from the woman before her. She fell silent, wishing she could just sink into the floor and forget about everything she had just said. She let the silence wash over them, biting the inside of her cheek to stop herself from making herself look like an even bigger fool.]]
Callista was still standing in the door until Diana basically grabbed her arm and brought her into the house as Diana closed the door behind her. Callista eyes were glued on this female. She looked familiar in a way, but she couldn't quite understand where she would know this female from. Callista was already lost in her own little world. Now she was just trying to figure out who this was.
Callista shook her head, as she looked over at Diana. [#20f8f6 "Sorry.. Lost in my own world right now."] Callista looked at Diana and then back to the female. She put her stuff on the ground. Callista felt like there was a frog in her throat, and that she couldn't even find anymore words to say to this female. Callista had her sleeve on her thumb, because she was a bit nervous herself. Callista wasn't aware of another person being here. It didn't bother Callista there was another person. What bothered her is she knew this female. But she couldn't place her finger where she knew this female. She shook her head once more.
Once Callista was done in her own little head, she realized that Diana was speaking once more. She was listening to the words that she was saying. Callista just blinked at her. Callista needed her friend. But she is going out on a date with her boyfriend. She was a little upset, but not enough to notice, because Callista face was already all puffy from crying. Callista nodded lightly. The part that got her was when that Diana was saying that they could share the bed in the guest bedroom. That was when Callista noticed that her cheeks were starting to get red. [#20f8f6 "Alright, everything will be looking the same when you come back."] Callista offered a slight smile, and then she gulped as she watched Diana leave the house. That means it was just her and this female. Once again, her cheeks started to get red once more. Callista nodded her head, and then went and sat down next to the girl.
[#20f8f6 "Well first I think you need to know my name.."] Callista chuckled lightly. To try and lighten the mood. [#20f8f6 "My name is Callista."] She gave her a smile once more, and then she felt her stomach to growl. [#20f8f6 "I can definitely tell you what's wrong. That is no issue.. I need to talk to someone, since Diana left. But first can we get something to eat? I didn't eat dinner tonight."] Callista smiled at her sheepishly. Callista wondered what this female thought of her. She showed up bawling. This female thought she was super weird.
Callista went in and grabbed the money so they could order something. [#20f8f6 "Is there something that you are in the mood for? Once we figure out what we want I can order it for us."] Callista smiled slightly at her. Callista was having a hard time actually smiling. She wanted to do nothing but cry, because the only person that didn't accept her was her mom. And that hurt so deeply. Callista didn't even know how to handle the pain she was feeling right now. Would she ever have a mom again? Or will her mom forever hate her? All these questions.. Questions that the brunette will never know. Not right now, anyways.
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Teagan could understand where the woman was coming from. She wasn't expecting someone else to arrive, and she had hoped she would be able to sit down and talk with Diana about everything. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly as the other spoke. Callista was the woman's name. She cocked her head to the side wondering if she needed to speak her name again, even though she already had. She shrugged lightly when the other went to grab the cash from the kitchen. What was she in the mood for anyway? That's something she didn't think about.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When the woman came back into the living room, she shrugged once more. [#FFBBBB "What if we just order pizza instead? We could always go and pick it up, stop at the liquor store as well and pick up some booze too"] she offered. She still couldn't figure out where she knew this woman from. She knew it was going to eat at her for the longest time. She just didn't want to come off as rude either. She was debating on just coming right out and asking her where they had met each other.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She grabbed her phone and turned it on. As she was waiting for her phone to boot up, she looked towards the woman. [#FFBBBB "I'm pretty sure Diana didn't mean to dip out on the both of us, but I feel like she has something up her sleeve.. I'm not sure what it is, but I feel like we will find out sooner or later"] she said breaking the silence between them. She then turned her eyes back to her phone and opened up a couple different app's for pizza, and started scrolling through them slowly.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#FFBBBB "I think tonight call's for something cheesy, along with something sweet as well. Hell if you wanted too, we could hit a grocery store as well and pick up some junk food as well. You and I both are dealing with something horrible, and I feel like a junk food night is in order"] she said as she looked up at the woman next to her. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly as she finally fell silent once more. Something about this woman was drawing her in. Seeing her walk in with tears running down her face broke her.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#FFBBBB "I know we might not know each other that well, but whatever you are dealing with, you aren't alone"] she said in a softer tone. She meant it too. She didn't want this beautiful creature to suffer alone, and she would be there to listen to her every step of the way. She then turned her eyes back to her phone scrolling through all of the options, and waiting for the other to give some ideas of what she was in the mood for as well. Maybe tonight wouldn't be so bad after all.]]
Callista was just listening to this woman talk, and the last thing that was said is what really got Callista going. She chewed on the inside of her cheek. She took in a deep breath. She was rethinking how everything went at her parents house. She just didn't understand it at all. Why couldn't her mother just accept her for her. But she knew that wasn't going to happen. Callista gulped lightly, as she was feeling her heart to race. It wasn't all from the female. It was from the words from her mother. Disowning her like she was trash. She sighed lightly, and then focused her attention back to what was happening.
[b "I think pizza and junk food is great! And booze. I definitely need booze."] Callista bit on her lip lightly. She was hoping that didn't make her sound like alcoholic. Callista was just going through a lot right now. And she wanted to forget about everything that has happened. But she knew that wouldn't be able to happen. She bit on her lip lightly, and then nodded her lightly. [b "Thank you for that..."] Callista just kind of looked down. She didn't know this female well, but it was nice knowing that someone could be there for her. She knew Diana was. But another person. A stranger. Someone that she didn't even know.
Callista was in agreement that she felt like Diana had something up her sleeve. [b "Oh it's okay. I didn't think she ditched us. Plus we have one another.."] Callista felt like she just inserted her foot into her mouth. She bit on her lip lightly, and then took in a deep breath. Callista always get enough around woman that she thought was cute. But she couldn't think like that right now. She had to figure out how to heal from her mother words. But she wasn't sure if she would be able too.
Callista stopped for a minute and then looked back at her. [b "Your not alone, either. I'm not sure what is going on. But, if you do want to talk, I'm all ears."] Callista smiled at her and then got up to get her jacket on.
[b "Do we want to wait for the pizza to get here? Or do we want to go get the junk food and booze?"] Callista realizing that she was locking eyes with her. Callista bit on her lip and then she realized that she hasn't looked, waiting for her response.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 Teagan saw the pain in the other's eyes, and her heart went out to her. She wanted nothing more than to wrap her arms around her, and help her forget her pain. She knew once she got booze in her system, she would end up talking up a storm. [#B9899E "We can always pick up the pizza along the way. If you don't mind putting in the order while I drive that is"] she said with a warm smile. She watched as the other stood and grabbed her coat. She watched the woman's movement with careful eyes.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 She didn't know why, but she felt comfortable around the female. She felt like she could let her guard down, and she could be herself around the woman. She wanted to spill everything, but knew that it would have to wait until they were back behind closed doors. [#B9899E "Here's the deal. We tell each other our sob stories, when we get back here, because I know I'm going to have a lot of tears"] she admitted. It was true. It was going to be hard to tell the woman her story. But something about the female was different.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 She felt like she could let her walls down, and that's just what she would need. She wanted to trust the woman, and she wanted to make sure the woman trusted her as well. She tore her eyes away from the other's, as she grabbed her car keys on the way out the door. She led the female to her car, and she unlocked it and slid in behind the wheel. It would have been weird to open her door, so she didn't. She started up the car, put her seatbelt on and waited for the other.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 When they were both in the car and belted in, she pulled away from the curb, and headed towards town. [#B9899E "If you order the pizza, I'll buy the booze and junk food. So that way not only one person is buying everything"] she said lightly. She didn't mind paying for the more expensive thing. Booze was up there in price, and she didn't mind it in the least. She wanted something strong, and she thought maybe some wine would be good for them too. Wine, pizza and junk food. That's the perfect girls night.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 As she was driving she made sure to look out for the liquor store and when she spotted it, she pulled into the parking lot, and pulled into the first spot she saw. She shut the car off and turned to face the female. [#B9899E "What do you think about Wine coolers, and vodka?"] she asked. She wanted to make sure she got something the other would like as well. It was their night after all, and she wanted to make sure she got the other's input of what she wanted, and didn't want.]]
