Holy fuck. Her parents are SO incredibly..... OH. MY. GOD. So, my best friend wanted to do DoS today. Just a week or so ago, her parents totally busted her; found out where she was going after school, that she had a boyfriend, that stuff. And yesterday she said she was doing DoS. They had a bad reaction, and she stood up to them. And today, she finally said after hinting at it for the past few months, that she was bi, and... Well, her father hit her. Which he apparently does a lot as a disciplinary action, so that's not the big thing. Here's the big thing: they want to take her out of our school. Like, immediately. AUGHEKDAFJAODIFMAKMDFLAG THEY ARE SO FUCKING RIDICULOUS AND THEY CANNOT TAKE HER AWAY FROM ME!!!! i'm serious, though, she's my best friend, for fuck's sake. and they're all like, "oh, it's an open environment where she can be herself. we can't have that, now can we?" i will be so lost without her. i swear. its not like i dont have other friends, but a best friend is different. she's the person i go to first, she's the person i have absolutely no reservations about sobbing into her shoulder, she's the person i can talk to about absolutely anything. plus, i'm head over heels for her, STILL. and, just.... argh. ARG. i CANNOT lose her!!! the selfish part of me just wants her to tell her parents that she made it all up, and to be really obedient so they'll let her stay at school. ARGH!!!!
