Insomnia | Joshler

Josh's college roommate has insomnia.
He's also pretty freaking hot.


4. Car Radio

Tyler woke up the next morning from what he thought was a nightmare. He didn't really remember any of it, it was just bad. 

He checked the time. It was 6:00 AM. He got out of bed, somehow Josh had slept through the alarm. 

Tyler was more than happy this morning that he didn't have to use a public bathroom. He looked like he'd been crying all night, which was completely true. 

He went into the bathroom and washed his face. He stared into the mirror, wondering if taking a shower would be necessary or not. He decided it would be a good idea since it was his first day.

As the hot water dripped down his body he heard Josh get out of bed. He knocked on the door.

Tyler froze, it would be rude to make him wait since he would be late to class, but he was taking a shower.

"Um, I'm in the shower, b-but I guess you can come in."

The door opened. Josh's eyes wandered to the shower, but he soon realized what he was doing and focused only on the mirror.

It was strange, the day before Josh seemed so talkative, but he didn't say a word to Tyler that morning.

After a very awkward morning, the two of them stepped out into the hallway.

Josh finally spoke, "Is it always cold in New England? It was so warm when I left Ohio."

"You're from Ohio?" Tyler asked.

"Yep, lived my whole life there."

Tyler grinned, "So did I! I lived in Columbus, Ohio my entire childhood."

"Dude," Josh said grinning, "We both lived in Columbus, Ohio, we probably went to school together."

Tyler didn't reply. He couldn't believe it, there was some cool guy who had the same taste in music as him, and was the same age as him, who lived in the same town as him and he had no idea. 

The stepped outside, it wasn't too cold, but it wasn't warm either. 

"What class do you have first?" Josh asked.

Tyler sighed, "I'm taking Calc 1, my mom made me."

Josh frowned, "To be honest, I still don't know what career I'm going for, I'm just taking important classes, I guess."

"Yeah," Tyler said, even though he was only half listening.

Tyler got into his car, his class was on the other side of campus. 

He went to turn the radio on, but to his horror, there were only a few wires sticking out of the place where it once was.

He didn't know what to do. Why would somebody steal his car radio? It wasn't that nice, it was just good enough for him. And why, out of all the cars parked here, did it have to be his? Without sound to distract him his thoughts would go to horrifying places.

He began to drive, it wouldn't be that bad, the car ride wasn't long.

He took a deep breath.

Everything would be fine.
