A rewrite of Nowhere Near You from Owen's perspective.
“How is orchid a color? It is already a plant. Is that not enough of a thing to be?”
I try to hold back a smile, and he elbows me. Leaning into him, I keep tapping the spines, pretending I can hear notes coming together.
He doesn’t meet my eyes. He can see me without doing so.

a sleepless night results in moritz's decision to stop being selfish, if he has the time.
He knows the love songs that play through this little gift shops radio are just fake blabber, musing about the heart as if it is anything more than an organ in the chest. He knows this, and still, he sings the lyrics underneath his breath, because he think he might understand what they mean now.
Moritz Farber is just a normal high school exchange student. Sure, he's blind but that doesn't make him much different from anyone else. He has friends, the thespians and the fellow German punks. He has love interests, whether they're one night stands or long standing crushes on his best friend. Moritz expects his life to be rather ordinary, until he starts experiencing dreams. Weird, horrific dreams of laboratories and tanks and his mother's voice. The strangest thing is, in these dreams he can see, and even though they're not like he remembers seeing as a kid, the visions are a lot more than he can see right now. At the end of every dream, Moritz hears and sees the same voice of a boy he swears he knows nothing about. That is, until Moritz hears the boys voice in a brief discussion, and his whole world starts crumbling as he makes a desperate attempt to figure out what's happening.
