Color of You (2017) C.S. Poe (A Lancaster Story)

Color of YouBowen Merlin has moved to Lancaster in the middle of the school year to become the band director for the high and middle schools, after the previous teacher was fired.

On of the first things he does, however, is dump apple cider all over the cutest guy he’s seen in awhile–who has a gorgeous voice.

“His voice was just so flippin’ gorgeous,” I said, sighing a little. “I’ve never heard an amber voice. It was smooth and flowed like blues music.”

Sound-to-color synesthesia.

This is longer than the other two stories in this series of interrelated tales, but you don’t need to have read Joy to enjoy this story.

Bowen has a best friend (who used to be his roommate) who misses him but is also enjoying hearing about his escapades as the new music teacher.

Except when they fight.

“Get bent,” I answered before hitting the End Call button. It wasn’t nearly as satisfying as slamming a receiver, but c’est la vie.

Oddly, I feel like this story could have been a little better if it was shorter. Not that it was bad, but the other stories are a little tighter and I liked them a tad better.

But it’s still the happy I needed.
