Author's Message: Author's Comment: I appreciate your e-mails. When I started writing this story I had no idea where it would go - there were two boys one called Hawken the othe Alex. It went no where for over a year then as I sometimes do I read over this fragment of a story I wrote six chapters then stopped I only posted five. Why? Because I realized I knew nothing about being blind or blindness but thanks to the help from my friend Drew I decided to actually find out more about blindness and as a result of that have amended chapters 1 through 6. My research including talking with and emailing some gay blind guys have definitely given me more insight and understanding if the character Alex Ambrose. The story continues and my hope is that chapters 7, 8 and onwards you the reader gain a better understanding of blindness and prehaps more compassion for those individuals who are visually impaired be they gay straight or bi.

"You knew? How?"
I asked pulling my head back and looking at him.
I giggled, "I did say that didn't I?"
"Yeah, you did."
We both started giggling and laughing. I don't know why we

"Yes!" we both answered, then I added, "Who gets first class, us?"
Mom smiled and said, "John and I."
"Okay, come on Alex."
He turned me around
and placed his hand on my shoulder and I lead him back

to apologize, I was wrong for assuming that you were just

"Nothing. We're just landing soon."

comfortable with Alex other than his blindness we had

"He could go with us and he could help me with the part. Please"
"Young man, you
must return to your seat, we are on final approach," voiced
"Yes, one sec, Mom? Mr. Ambrose?" The two looked at each other and smiled.

He smiled turn his
head slightly, "You really are an asshole. Aren't you?"
"I'm just joking
with you. You looked really funny when...Oumph!" Suddenly
"You know what I do with assholes like you?" he said tersely.
"Alex I was only

most ticklish person. I was squirming and bucking
Finally, he stopped.
