"…how every time he and Ian spent time in his house it was like some of the pain and horror inflicted by his father was replaced with something he might even call happiness. He thought about all the times he’d been with Ian. The way his touch made him feel wanted and worthy for the first time in his life. He’d never known a man’s hands to be so gentle."
Already dealing with having a child he never wanted with a wife he cannot stand, Mickey is barely getting by without Ian. The time he’ll have to wait to see Ian again might just be a lot shorter than he had expected.
