Hiding behind glasses and an overstated vocabulary, he faces panic attacks and headaches if situations become too uncomfortable.

Rhys quickly invites himself into Alistair's home and life, and while part of Alistair doesn't believe he can afford the distraction of a relationship, the rest of him wants the other man to never leave.
