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?


8. Blue

When Tyler walks into Starbucks he only notices one thing: Josh is upset.

Tyler doesn't notice that Josh's stripe changed, he doesn't notice that his own stripe changed, he doesn't even notice that Josh dyed his hair blue. He just notices that Josh is upset and that's all that matters.

"What's wrong?"

Josh looks at him with a small smile, it seems like just seeing Tyler makes him feel a little better.

"My girlfriend broke up with me."

Tyler leans on the counter.


"She says she's looking for her soulmate. She doesn't want to be with me. I've dyed my hair so many times to see if it makes her stripe change but nothing works," He smiles a little, despite the fact that he's obviously upset, "There's some person out there who's stripe keeps changing. They must be so confused."

Tyler looks down at his stripe, just now noticing it's blue.

It still matches Josh's hair.

"My stripe changed last night," Josh continues, "Not very much, it went from dark brown to, like, a dark, reddish brown."

"Like, mahogany?" Tyler asks.

"Yeah, kinda like-" he stops himself, "-Kinda like your hair."

Tyler blushes. It has to be Josh. He's sure of it now.

"Oh, God. Why didn't you tell me?" Josh was now looking at the bright blue stripe on Tyler's wrist.

"I wasn't sure. Well I mean, not until now."

Josh just smiles.
