I saw your Instagram post.

They're all idiots
for assuming you're straight.
And I'm including myself
in that statement.
Charlie must be really happy.
In some ways. Yeah.
I mean, he
he says he's really happy, but
I don't know. I think he's been finding
all the attention, like, a lot.
Well, yeah. He hates attention, so
I'm just worried.
How come?
I think
the more I learn about him,
the more I think
that the bullying and all the things
that happened to him in the past,
they all really affected him.
And And he still carries it all with him.
Even though it's over.
It still causes him a lot of pain.
- I don't know. Do you think that's true?
- Yeah. Yeah, I I do.
I think when something really bad happens,
it can affect you for a really long time.
my dad died when I was 12, and,
you know,
I think a lot of the reason I get
so freaked out about losing my friends
and losing Elle
is because losing him was just, like
- I I didn't know about your dad.
- Oh.
Don't Don't be weird about it.
- I'll try.
- Good.
You know the bullying?
You know how bad it was, don't you?
I mean,
I heard some stuff, but, um,
yeah, Charlie never really
talked to me about it.
Me neither.
- Can you close your eyes?
- Why?
Because I'm nervous
you'll think I look weird.
Okay. I'm not looking,
but for the record,
I think you always look cute.
I can't believe you're my boyfriend.
Can I please open my eyes now?
D D Does it look bad?
No, you look
so good.

My plan's been foiled.
You've got so many rugby trophies.
That one's from summer camp.
You went to rugby summer camp?
When I was 12.
I think I had a crush on the instructor.
Oh my God.
You know, I didn't realize it at the time,

I was obsessed with him,
so I tried really, really hard
and, uh, got that trophy
for being the best team player.
That is so adorable!
Now your turn.
Tell me something.
Like what?
You never told me about
the bullying.
What that was like.
We don't need to talk about that.
Everything's fine now.
Is everything fine?
I know you like everything to be fine
and happy and perfect all the time,
but you don't have to be perfect with me.
Charlie, we said
we'd tell each other things.
After you told me
about your eating thing.
Someone just heard Tao
talking about me coming out.
I think it surprised me
how homophobic people were.
I thought things were better nowadays.
People would just
call me disgusting to my face.
And it went on for so long
that I think I started
to believe what they were saying.
It made me really hate myself.
So much that I
I used to
I used to cut myself sometimes.
I don't wanna feel like that anymore.
Do you still do that now?
I thought we'd banned the S word.
Can you promise to tell me
if it ever gets that bad again?
I just don't wanna annoy you
or burden you.
I don't want you to think
I'm some fragile, broken mess.
Like you need to fix me.
I would hate that.
You're not, and I wouldn't.
But I've done so many things
that were scary in the past few months
because you were there, holding my hand.
And I wanna be that for you too.
you're my boyfriend.
can you just please,
please promise me?
I love your hair so much.
