A junior asked me if I wanted to fool around in the handicap stall above the gymnasium. I agreed, not thinking if it was gay or straight, I was just excited. I met him in the stall during fifth period Spanish.

We were fooling around in the stall, when two jocks walk in and caught us. I ran back to class. The next day the rumor around school was Zach was caught in the bathroom with this junior, obviously cause we looked more like twins back in the day.

Too funny. I'd never have guessed the jock Zach were gay but his gay hands gave it away. His artsy bro on the other hand, was undetectable in general.  Moral of the story, never judge a book by its cover.
