Kat (Ryan) waited to gauge his reaction. A quiet hung in the air. He remained passive, looking at her with friendship and understanding in his eyes.
"And," he began. "What changed your mind? I mean, well I can guess..."
She stopped him. "No. Let me finish I was an angry man." She looked down as she nervously rubbed her press-on fingernails together. The irony of sitting on a sofa with a shaved body wearing a dress and heels, makeup and a wig, was not lost on her.
"I was an angry man." Kat repeated more quietly. "I think I was angry that the one thing I wanted was forbidden to me. That all my feelings on you were the pronouncements I had made on myself in high school. I was called a freak. A faggot. A weirdo. I guess getting beat up and forced to do all those things I did in high school were my just deserts for being... for being," she threw her hands in the air in frustration.
