I mean, we all knew that this was going to happen and it couldn’t be avoided. Hiding their relationship has definitely been such a big strain on Bitty because he can’t talk about it with anyone. He care so much about Jack and his career that he doesn’t want to ruin it for him at all. He loves Jack so much that he’s willing to go through the pain of having to hide who he loves from the whole world.
But Bitty is hurting too and with so many people offering him a shoulder to cry on, it’s beginning to grow on him. He can’t talk to anyone about his relationship without spilling the secret and think about it, it just must be so stressful on him.There have probably been so many times where Jack does well in a game and he wants to go, ‘That’s my boyfriend, I’m so proud of him!’ but he can’t and it must fucking hurt. So many times where he’s want to replace ‘best’ with ‘boy’ with he’s referring to Jack as his friend.
So many times where he wished he could just be so open with the rest of his team.
I’m just feeling so sad and upset for Bitty because we all know he’s been under so much but we’re only seeing it now.
Because he’s been hiding it so well.
From everyone and from Jack.
