I waffled between a 4 and a 4.5 on this one...but the heart has been pulled towards 4.5 in the end. I am absolutely loving how this is being developed but fucking hell of a cliffhanger...thankful the next one is already waiting for me. Phew!!!
Maybe it’s selfish, but knowing Patrick the way he does now, he doesn’t want him to ever leave. If nothing else, he needs Patrick in his family as a friend. Dozens of Christmases into the future, he wants Patrick out on the farm with him, opening gifts and eating Grandma Betty’s pie. For dozens of New Years’ Eves he wants to dance at least one song in Patrick’s arms.
Patrick doesn’t know what he said wrong, aside from everything, but suddenly Will’s eyes well with tears and he starts to cry.
