Patrick Mahoney has one goal in mind: get out of his native Fresno and find freedom in the rainbow and glitter-painted streets of San Francisco. As a college freshman, he’s sure he’ll finally have the chance to be himself, away from the judgmental eyes of his conservative hometown.
Josh Dirda’s never wanted to be tied down before, preferring the emotional ease of the one night stand. But when Patrick moves into the apartment that Josh shares with three friends, Josh is caught up in Patrick’s sly wit and quietly creative spirit. As Patrick’s self-appointed tour guide, Josh can be Patrick’s introduction to the city he loves. But after a drunken Halloween hook-up crosses lines, Patrick and Josh must reckon with their true feelings—and decide whether they can let go of the ghosts that haunt them.
The next hour passed in a blur of sweat and shouting and angling around doorways and upstairs. At the end of it, Patrick’s bed and desk and dresser were inside, his boxes were piled up in all the available space, and he was fairly certain they hadn’t even managed to break anything.
“Whoa,” Josh said, settling down on the front step and accepting the can of Coke Mike pressed into his hand. “I think that was our best time yet.”
“Patrick didn’t have much stuff,” Kai said, “unlike some people I know who own like five hundred musical instruments—”
“I don’t have a drum set,” Josh cut him off. “That is all I’m going to say.”
“But I only have a drum set,” Mike said, his voice dangerously close to a whine. “I have, like, nothing else.”
“And the giant-ass TV,” Kai said.
“Oh right, like you were complaining about that,” Mike said. “How did you even survive before I moved in?”
“I don’t know,” Kai said, sounding sad. “It was a dark time.”
“Honey?” Patrick’s mom said, her eyes flickering between the boys. “I think your father and I are going to head back and return the truck.”
Patrick felt some combination of relief and terror. He did want his parents to leave, as that seriously decreased the chances of them embarrassing him in front of his new roommates, but—then they would have left. Then he’d really be here, in San Francisco, on his own. By himself. In a crowded apartment filled with other guys, but still. Still.
“Okay,” Patrick said. “I— Thank you. For all your help.”
For raising me and feeding me and clothing me and housing me for eighteen years, he wanted to say, but Kai and Mike and Josh were watching them while pretending like they weren’t, and how did you even thank your parents for that? While he was at it, he should thank them for creating him, for bringing him to life.
Thank you for making all this possible.
