Summary: How Cam came out to his parents (well, his mom)

Feedback: Yes please. Even if it's bad. Especially if it's bad.


Cam's mom teased him all through high school about his crush on Amy Vandenburg, so of course she noticed, the first time he came home, when he didn't mention her at all.

She cornered him on the back porch, late in the evening, the third day he got back, armed with two huge mugs of tea, while his dad was down at the bar for his Wednesday night dominoes game.

"Cameron, honey, if there's something you want to talk about," she said, sitting next to him on the step and staring out into the darkness, same way he was. Cam sipped his tea, even though it was too hot, and didn't say anything. "You know you can always tell me anything. If you've met someone, another girl."

"I haven't," Cam said, pressing his hands closer round his mug and forcing himself not to start trembling. "I haven't met a girl."

He watched his mom from the corner of his eye – her face was hard to make out in the dark, but she didn't look shocked or horrified. A bit surprised, maybe.

"Oh, Cameron," she said softly, and put her arm around him, pulling him close. Cam went, turning his face into her shoulder and letting the shudder run down his spine, not sure if it was relief or just fading fear, and they sat like that for a while, until Cam's mom said, "Is he handsome?"
