Felipe comes to the realization that like himself, Jordan is homosexual and is facing the same problems that he has had to cope with.

An Intuitive Perception

Felipe had never been told that he was psychic; in fact he had only heard the word since coming to St. John’s. Back in Southern Arm, old Aunt Mary Carrington sometimes told fortunes with playing cards and had even been known to have a premonition (though no one used that word either) of an upcoming tragedy or the like. “I couldn’t sleep at all last night”, was what she had been heard to say the day the Gilbert brothers had been lost at sea four years earlier. Although they didn’t live in Southern Arm, their grandparents did and had often visited as children. “I’m awful afraid that something frightful is going to happen”! Well Felipe didn’t think that he possessed any of Aunt Mary’s abilities but he had suddenly become convinced that Jordan like himself had no interest in girls but preferred the company of boys - In fact probably supposed himself to be in love with Felipe! The whole thing had suddenly dawned on him as he was returning home on the bus just two days after Phyllis and John had expressed their concern over their youngest son. He was struck by the way everything fitted together so perfectly – why had he not seen it before? He was also certain that Jordan had no idea that he too was homosexual so it was important that he not think his secret to be out before he knew the whole story.

Felipe's Plan

Felipe ate little at suppertime that evening and even found it difficult to concentrate on the TV shows that he usually enjoyed so much. He looked forward to being alone with Jordan but also realized that he was no longer a child living at home and must now take responsibility for his actions. While he understood that homosexuality was not wrong, he knew that most people felt differently and therefore secrecy was imperative. Even more important however was that Jordan be certain about his own sexuality. Could the fact that he had no close friends and had been bullied at school be the reason for his being so enamored by his new best friend? Felipe did not think so but he had to be positive. While he knew that he had been born that way - only Jordan could answer that question about himself. A little horseplay was fine but an adult relationship, he knew must be based on much more. Since this was Friday night and he would not be going to work again until Monday morning, there would be plenty of time for him and Jordan to discuss things at length but first he must tell the younger man about himself, the problems he’d encountered the suicidal thoughts and how in the end he had accepted himself unconditionally. Finally it was bedtime and Felipe was sure that Jordan’s eyes were watching and admiring his posterior as he followed him up the stairs. Although he hadn’t noticed it before, he now remembered that except for the first night he’d been there, Jordan had always followed him to their bedroom! Felipe could not resist a smile!

Felipe can empathize with Jordan more than others - it would have been tougher to live with this reality in earlier times. I think you are taking a break and I too seem to have missed this post for a while, thanks Kingwell - siva
