Kelly’s finger skimmed the description and felt the life draining from her face.
All she could think about was what would her family say when they found out.
Every bullet point that the book said about the personality traits pointed to her being so, but it was contrary to the values her family had meticulously instilled in her from birth.
Her parents always cooed and smiled at the similarities they shared with her sisters and brother. She was to be the same as them and not the mirror that the book described.
It was unfair.
She could feel the ice-cold flush of panic bomb from her stomach into her groin.
She looked at the text again.
It couldn’t be right. It just couldn’t.
No, no, NO.
Everything the psychology book contained said it all though:
The empathy situation; the emotional levels; the intimacy issues; all of it.
She dropped her head on to the desk with a painful thud.
According to the book, she was a well grounded human being and her parents were not going to understand one tiny bit of it.
