Will thinks that it’s a bit suspicious, the way that George’s cheeks heat up when he leans over him to reach the sugar in the cupboard above the sink, when they’re both standing in the doorway and George’s frame is shrinking next to his own, when it gets late and suddenly George stops buffing out his shoulders and just… is.
He thinks it all a bit suspicious, especially when he’s standing in front of him, inches between them at the bar, and George is refusing to sit down. He tilts his head to watch him, as if he’s trying to read something secret, something he’s hiding - a reason why. But he thinks he might already know.
Will thinks it’s something to do with his size, the way he towers over him. He thinks that because of the way his cheeks turn crimson and his fingertips curl into fists. He thinks that because of the way George tries to make himself larger, as if he can succeed by simply standing with a straightened back.
He thinks that he might like it, how it makes George squirm, and he wonders if George might like it too.
He's suspicious, that's all.
