The Stripe

Everyone has a stripe on their wrist.

Everyone knows it's the color of their soulmate's hair.

How in the world is Tyler going to find someone with pink hair?


26. Baby Boy

Tyler steps into the hospital elevator, repeating Josh's room number over and over in his head.

He's so excited to see Josh. It's been so long, too long.

When he finally gets to the room a woman is talking to Josh. She looks a little like him.

"Mom," Josh says, "He's here."

She frowns and leaves, but not before flashing a glare at Tyler.

There was no "Nice to meet you," not even a "Hello," (or, "Goodbye.") she just left.

"Sorry about that," Josh says.

Tyler doesn't say anything. He just approaches Josh and wraps his arms around him.

Josh, who is in quite an awkward position, tries his best to hug back.

"I missed you so much Jishwa."

"I missed you too, baby boy."

Tyler pulls away.

"You know, Tyler," Josh says, "It's only been a week."

"Yeah," Tyler replies, "But it was a week where I thought something bad had happened to you!" He softens his voice. "What did happen, anyway?"

Josh frowns, "Car crash, I broke my leg."

"Oh," Tyler says, an empathetic look on his face, "I'm sorry."



"I'm really sorry I didn't give you my number, that was stupid of me."

"No, no. I didn't give you my number. It was my fault. I was just depending on you being at Starbucks every day."

"I was depending on you being there, too."

"I guess."

Tyler grabs Josh's hand.

"Josh, I'm really sorry, but I didn't tell my mom I was coming here after school and she's probably really worried. I should get going."

"Alright," Josh says, with a soft smile, "But first, come here."

He pulls Tyler closer and presses his soft lips against Tyler's.

Tyler smiles.

"Bye, Jishwa!"

"Bye, Tyjo!"
