He should just walk away from this. He should allow Barry to solve his own problems, disappear back into the night without a word and stick to Jay’s tentative timetable. He should be patient, thoughtful, restrained. He should wait for things to settle into place, as he’s been doing for most of his life up until this point.
...But he’s spent far too long waiting, and it’s cost him far too much to ever be worth it. He shrugs, sends a silent apology to Jay, steps from the shadows and finally – for the first time in months – bursts back into life.
