Something borked up in the shading layer of frame 3.

So, this is where I tell you about when I came out to my dad.

I invited him over to my house, where I had told him I had something very important to say. I was 22 at the time. I was terrified of what would happen. Not of violence, but of being without my dad. I already didn't have a mother.
The house was empty, and I handed him two typed pages of information. I went out for a long walk so he could read.
The first part was about who I felt I was. But in a very.. sterile way. And then I got into a little science and numbers. They always make me feel better. And then I closed with the line saying that I would understand if he couldn't love me any more. And I would have understood.
When I walked back in, he was reclined on the couch with the weirdest look on his face. His first sentence was; "I thought you were never coming back". I had been gone WAY longer than expected.
He then told me, "Well, I certainly won't stop loving you".
He asked who I was attracted to. I told him I didn't know, and it wasn't important to me.
He asked if I was going to tell my stepmother. I asked if he would. He agreed.
Then he asked the most important question; would this finally let me be happy.
I told him, I think it will.

Dad, if I had known you would be so perfect to me, I would have had such a different life. Probably a better one, with less anger, with memories I could handle at night. I try to smile. I know my life is sometimes in shambles, but I remember that day, and it makes me know I can keep going. I love you Dad.
