Spending fifteen minutes in the shower didn’t seem like enough for DJ who still felt unclean when he stepped out and wrapped a towel around himself. Realising his mother was downstairs and not wanting her to find out what was happening DJ grabbed the air freshener and emptied half the aerosol into the air. He gathered up his soiled clothes and took them back to his room where he found Cody sitting sheepishly on the bed in a pair of DJ’s old pants.
Fortunately for DJ the large trash can for the house was kept outside his bedroom window and he was able to open it up and drop the soiled clothes straight into the can. He turned to face Cody and wondered if he was blushing as much as his friend was, it felt like both of them were ashamed of what had happened. The uncomfortable silence lingered with neither young man keen to ask the questions floating around their heads.
“We need to talk about what just happened.” DJ eventually said when he felt like he was composed enough to speak without bursting into tears.
“Do we have to?” Cody replied as he looked away.
“Dude, there’s something really fucked up going on.” DJ replied.
“Maybe it was just a coincidence…” Cody muttered.
“For the love of God, Cody!” DJ threw his arms up in the air in exasperation, “I’m not someone who regularly walks around crapping their pants and unless you’ve been keeping it secret I don’t think you are in the habit of wetting yourself.”
“Of course I’m not!” Cody defended himself assertively.
“Right, then we need to talk about it.” DJ finally felt like he was making some progress with his best friend, “Did you say something about the mark… hurting or something?”
“It burned.” Cody clarified, “Like, it started small and grew and grew.”
“The same thing happened to me.” DJ nodded. He looked to the computer screen which was still showing that scary picture of the mysterious tall man.
“Don’t tell me you think it’s The Diaper Man.” Cody said as he followed DJ’s gaze.
“Jesus Christ, Cody, what else could it be?” DJ asked.
Cody knew really that there was no rational explanation for everything that had happened and yet he still found the idea of some paranormal entity impossible to admit to. He looked away and out the window, he was idly thinking when he thought he saw something in the distance. In the distance beyond the garden and down the road he saw a tall figure dressed all in black.
Cody jumped up as his heart started beating several times it’s regular rate. He ran to the window and looked again, whatever he had seen had disappeared. Cody felt a shiver run down his spine.
“Cody? What’s going on?” DJ asked as he saw his distracted friend open the window and lean outside.
“Huh?” Cody pulled himself back inside without being able to see anything. Whatever or whoever he saw had completely disappeared.
“Did you see something out there?” DJ asked as she rushed over to the window himself.
“No…” Cody trailed off.
“Liar.” DJ said as he looked up the road but couldn’t see anything out of the ordinary.
“Well, what are we going to do?” Cody asked, “What if… What if what happened earlier happens again?”
DJ sighed and had to admit he had been thinking about this himself. He had not known he needed the bathroom until he was squeezing the log out of his body, there was no way he could let that happen in front of his family or anything. For all he knew it was only a matter of time before he humiliated himself again.
“Maybe we should…” DJ trailed off. He was blushing for even thinking about the potential solution.
“Should what?” Cody asked with a frown.
“You won’t like it but maybe we should go to the store and…” DJ stopped again.
“Just spit it out!” Cody said impatiently. He was worried that his bladder could just evacuate at any moment.
“Diapers!” DJ exclaimed a little too loudly. His blushing intensified and he put a hand to his forehead, “Maybe we should get diapers.”
Cody sat in silence for a few seconds with his mouth hanging open. He leaned back and DJ thought he looked like he was about to either burst into laughter or launch an angry tirade.
“No way.” Cody said simply as he shook his head and waved his hands, “I am NOT going to humiliate myself like that.”
“I don’t like it either.” DJ retorted, “But you have to think about…”
“I said no!” Cody repeated much more forcefully. He was usually much more timid but the recent events seemed to have rattled him.
“What are you going to do instead?” DJ asked with raised eyebrows, “Clearly something is going on and you’re going to have to do something!”
Cody sat in silence and looked down at the floor. He was angry and frustrated but the worst part was that he knew DJ was right. He hated the thought of diapers but with everything that was going on it seemed like it might be a sensible precaution. Cody reluctantly stood up and nodded his head causing DJ to pat him on the shoulder in solidarity.
“You’re paying for them though.” Cody muttered.
DJ smiled and nodded his head before they both left the room. A couple of minutes later they were walking out of the house and on to the street. It was quiet and neither of the young men felt much like talking. Despite the hot weather they both wore long sleeve shirts to cover the burn marks that otherwise showed up so prominently on their wrists. They walked down the street and through the park. The park was a large open space with a children’s playground in the centre, it was a hub of the community and beautifully kept with immaculately cut grass which was being used for all manner of sports.
Cody and DJ were in no mood to stop and enjoy the pleasant surroundings though. They were on a mission to get to the pharmacy nearby and home as soon as possible. The two men hurried along the gravel path without speaking to each other until they were soon coming out of the gate at the other end.
“The pharmacy is-” DJ started as he pointed up the road a little way.
“I know where it is.” Cody interrupted tensely, “Come on.”
DJ didn’t realise his friend was quite so tense but now that he thought about it he could see why Cody was irritable. Buying diapers was a very embarrassing proposition, DJ had pushed it to the back of his mind to just concentrate on getting to the shop in one piece but now that they were nearly there he started to feel nervous as well.
The pharmacy they were heading to was a locally ran store that served most of the town’s needs. It was on the high street and located in between a supermarket on one side and a cinema on the other. Even from a distance away DJ and Cody could see where it was from the sign out front with an illuminated green cross.
“I’ll wait out here.” Cody mumbled as they reach the large glass windows in the front of the shop.
“Y-You’re not coming in with me?” DJ asked.
“It’ll be weird if we both go in…” Cody shrugged.
DJ agreed it would be strange but couldn’t help but think it was a convenient excuse for his friend to avoid the embarrassing part of this whole trip. With a sigh DJ walked inside the store and looked around, his heart was beating quickly as he saw the young woman behind the counter smiling at him. He briefly returned the smile before walking around to look for the diapers. The only other customers seemed to be elderly which didn’t make him feel much better about what he was doing.
The diapers were on a set of shelves on the right side of the shop. There was more choice than DJ had expected and he found it all a bit intimidating. He walked down the aisle looking at the different packets and wondering which would be best for him and Cody, there was no way he was going to ask for assistance. He picked up a fairly generic looking white package that had a picture of a smiling old man on the front along with a picture of what the diaper inside looked like. The text described it as “adult incontinence underwear” which made DJ feel slightly more comfortable than “diapers” would have.
DJ anxiously carried the smooth plastic rectangular packet to the checkout and felt himself sweating a little. He couldn’t wait to get this finished so he could leave, he dreaded someone asking him questions about what he was buying.
“Did you find everything you were looking for today?” The young lady said as DJ approached.
DJ was too embarrassed to speak so he just nodded his head and placed the diapers on the counter. The person behind the counter scanned them without saying a word and placed them in an opaque plastic bag. When she said how much they cost DJ fumbled in his pocket for the money and anxiously awaited his change. When he finally picked the bag up and left the store he felt a sense of victory and he could finally breathe a sigh of relief.
“Did you get them?” Cody asked as soon as the door opened. He could see the bag DJ was carrying but felt like he had to be sure.
“Yeah, let’s go home before anything happens.” DJ muttered in response. He was getting increasingly nervous that one or both of them would experience another accident whilst in public.
DJ led the way as the two of them walked quickly back to the park. The bag full of diapers weighed heavily in DJ’s hands and he looked around nervously as if someone was going to suddenly run up and take them. The embarrassing payload felt like a beacon attracting unwanted attention. Thanks to both men being so distracted they didn’t notice a group of people loitering around a bench just in front of them.
“Well, well, well, look who it is!” James Spencer, the biggest bully from the school DJ and Cody had just finished attending was sitting in the middle of a group of his fellow thugs. He was looking at the approaching men with a smirk on his face. DJ and Cody were two of his favourite targets.
James stood up and swaggered into the centre of the gravel path. His stooges stood around on either side, they all wore smirks as if they were the greatest things since sliced bread. DJ and Cody spotted them far too late to do anything to avoid the bullies. Cody felt his pulse quicken as adrenaline flooded his body, he had always been on the worse end of James’s bullying and he had an automatic response of fear when he saw his tormentor.
“The two boyfriends going for a stroll together?” James loudly said as DJ and Cody approached. The surrounding sycophants snickered and laughed.
DJ was the more confident of the two but even he was scared by James and his gang. He stopped with the path blocked in front of him, his grip on the bag tightened. This was the worst time to be confronted like this.
“We’re just trying to go home.” DJ said eventually, “So if you cou-”
“Rushing back to the bedroom?” Charlie, the chief lackey of James, said with a sneer.
For as long as DJ and Cody had been friends they had been bullied by James and his favourite “jokes” had always involved questioning the pair’s sexuality. DJ and Cody just stood meekly in front of the bullies and hoped they would move out of the way and let them past.
“What’s in the bag?” James asked as he nodded towards what DJ was holding.
“Nothing.” DJ answered a bit too quickly causing James to raise an eyebrow, “Can you just let us past? We’re not in school anymore, aren’t we passed all this?”
“Sure, you can pass.” James said as he folded his arms across his chest, “As long as you pay the toll.”
The group laughed again. Cody looked around and realised they were rapidly being surrounded by the large men, a small army under the command of the biggest bully of all.
“W-What’s the toll?” DJ asked. He tried and failed to keep the fear from his voice.
“Whatever is in the bag.” James pointed at the plastic bag that DJ was holding so tightly his knuckles were turning white.
DJ and Cody both felt terror washing over them. They needed these diapers but worse than that they were horrified that someone, least of all James, might find out about them. The reaction to finding the pair of them holding a pack of diapers scared them a lot. They could already picture the laughter and then the pictures going up on social media. They would never be able to live such a revelation down.
“We need… Look, just let us past.” DJ stuttered and splutter, “Please.”
“Give us what’s in the bag or we’ll take it.” James wasn’t smiling and as he held his hand out it was clear he expected to get his loot.
“Can… Can we give you money instead?” DJ asked. He hated how subservient he became when confronted by the bully but right then he would’ve given anything to keep the diapers secret. He wished Cody would speak up to help but knew his friend’s shyness and introversion made him avoid conflict wherever possible.
“Give me the bag before we take it from you.” James ordered, “And since you offered we’ll take your money too.”
“We… We can’t let you have the bag.” DJ adjusted his feet nervously.
There was a stand-off for a few seconds that felt like an eternity. James smirked and with a little nod of the head he started turning around. DJ thought he had actually got through to the bully when he suddenly felt someone rush both him and Cody. The bag he had been holding as tightly as possible was ripped from his hands. The goon who had snatched it jogged forwards to James like a puppy returning a ball.
“Now let’s see what was so important to the two…” James’s voice faded away as he opened the bag and looked inside.
DJ had been knocked into his hands and knees but as he stood up he felt the colour drain from his face. He watched as if time was in slow motion, James looked down and it seemed to take him a few seconds to even register what he was looking at.
“Oh my God!” James exclaimed as it suddenly dawned on him what he was seeing, “You two are into some kinky shit, eh?”
DJ and Cody cringed as the other bullies gathered around to see what the bag was holding. James reached in and started pulling the package out until the bag fell to the ground. DJ looked at the ground in shame whilst Cody seemed totally frozen like a statue.
The gang burst into laughter as they saw the diapers and the insults came from every angle. It was no use for either DJ or Cody to deny the allegations of homosexuality, they had done it before but it didn’t matter to the bullies. They had no way to explain the diapers they had been so desperate to keep possession of.
Whilst the vicious laughter continued James let go of the diapers and the tightly wrapped package dropped to the floor. Cody finally acted and he quickly scooped the disposables up and started running away down the path towards home pushing past the bullies, DJ quickly followed. A couple of bullies made to give chase but James stopped them.
“Let the perverts go.” James called out so Cody and DJ could hear, “They have nothing I want.”
