My friend, Venus, might just be the most beautiful girl in the world. The two of us have known one another since middle school, and for the longest time I've had an intense crush on her. But here's the thing - she doesn't even know I'm a lesbian.
Now the two of us are in college together, sharing a dorm room. Both of us compete on our school's swim team, and I'm tormented by the sight of her perfect body moving so gracefully through the water. I begin to have visions of losing her after the end of our senior year together, and I decide that it's time to make a move.
The two of us share an intense intimate moment together in the shower after the two of us have finished up practicing for the night. For a moment I think that the happiness I've craved for so long is finally mine - until she runs out of the locker room crying. She disappears for that entire next week, and I fear that I may have ruined our friendship forever.
Now it's going to take quite a bit of persuasion from our swim coach, Ms. Blum, to get the two of us to kiss and make up....
