When Ian first arrived, it was awkward. Mickey wouldn’t look Ian in the eye and Ian worriedly thought Mickey had changed his mind and regretted his decision to have Ian over.
Ian’s insecurities often reared their ugly heads when he was with Mickey. He knew Mickey cared about him to some degree, but the extent of such feelings still eluded him. He found himself second-guessing every interaction, hanging onto every word that slipped from Mickey’s lips. It was exhausting and Ian honestly thought he might be in love.
