From a complete strangers view, Frank Iero would seem like any other normal shy 22 year old with an extremely bad immune system.
Those were probably the reasons why he always wore scarves and never talked.
The few people who knew him, knew he could talk, but just labeled him under selective mute.
Because he never talked.
Because he chose not to talk.
Because he was afraid?
"Hi welcome to my café! What can I get for you?"
"Just a black coffee please." Was answered by a raspy yet shy voice.
And that's how Gerard found himself interested in the quiet and cute boy infront of him.
