Wouldn't want you to think I'm actively avoiding you, Scarlet. But I guess I kind of am, aren't I? Away from the apartment, at least. You know I don't do.. honesty very well. But while I'm forced to be honest for a little while you should know it's not that I don't trust you with whatever I end up saying. But I've never been very comfortable with my agency being taken away. On any level. Had enough of that when I was a kid.
I'd just rather have you judge me based on the man I'm trying to be now instead of the one I used to be, and I can't know what I'll say if someone asks the right questions. Or the wrong ones.
If you still want to go to the little Halloween get together, I'll go with you. I probably won't be chatty but at least if I can't lie I'll have to admit I'm having fun.
Mick's back, too. But he doesn't remember. At least not yet. It's like he's delayed. My instincts tell me it would be easier on everyone else if I just left well enough alone and let Mick live his life. But I'm selfish and when I had both of you and you had Iris too was like everything was finally right
. Even Mick having Palmer was almost starting to gel for me. I worry because I don't want you to think that it means you're not enough. You're enough Barry. You've always been enough since we started this.
And I need to stop before I keep going.
