    Summary

    Phineas likes pretty things--Gene knows this by now--and that includes this nice pink shirt. He doesn't understand the...uh, shall we say, implication of a young man wearing pink (at least not right away). But Gene himself does, and so do their other friends, and they have a lot to say on the subject. Finny just wants to get dressed in peace.

    Summary

    What if there was something more to Finny's suffering? Other than not being able to play sports, but what the hell is he trying to get at here?

    The momentum of the argument abruptly broke from his control. His face froze.

    “Because I’ve suffered,” he burst out.

    We drew back in amazement from this. In the silence all the flighty spirits of the morning ended between us. He sat down and turned his flushed face away from me.
