    Summary

    “Hey,” he says. “What happened?”

    “Nothing,” Eddie answers. Lies. And Buck carefully works himself up to sit on his knees, straddling Eddie’s hips but barely touching him because that’s not allowed and Eddie knows it.

    Eddie’s eyes slip closed and one fist comes up to tap on his forehead. The other reaches out for Buck’s thigh, grasping for a grip on his jeans and Buck tangles his fingers with Eddie’s and holds them there.

    “I don’t know,” he finally admits through gritted teeth.

     

    OR: The journey of self-discovery is a bit of a minefield. Buck helps Eddie through it.

    Summary

    He’s been back in El Paso for all of twenty hours, not including the nearly two days of travel it took just to get him here. He already had to spend an extra two weeks on base after the ambush to make sure his wounds weren’t infected and getting his discharge squared away- being dropped back into his old life like it was nothing wasn’t part of the plan. He hasn’t had a moment of peace since he got off the plane.

    All Eddie wants is to sleep. But his family won’t stop calling him and coming over. They’re talking about having a party this weekend, even more people flying in from out of town just to see him. His shoulder is still sore and his wrist yells at him if he tries to twist it the wrong way but that’s all behind him now, right? He got to come home. He got to kiss his wife and see his family. He should be in fucking wonderland right now, not still feeling like this whole thing is a fever dream.

    OR

    Eddie holds and gets held, mostly by Christopher.

    Summary

    He should feel something. He should feel anything at this point. But doesn't.

    There’s blood sliding over his palm, down his wrist. It drips in a slow, thick rhythm. Little splats of red falling onto crisp white cutting board. Like crisp white shirt that Chimney took from him at a hospital. Traded for one that didn’t show where he was gouged and bleeding.

    Where his soul was ripped in half and nearly taken from him, and though he knew it was alive because Eddie’s still living breathing beating, he’s alive he’s alive he’s alive, they’re still severed.

    Maybe Eddie is the part of him that feels.

    ~~~

    Buck is wounded, Eddie is breaking. They work on healing together.

    Summary

    Eddie stands in the doorway and looks at his ruined kitchen. It's kind of poetic the way his kitchen represents his life, not that Eddie's ever really been into poetry, doesn't really get it to be honest but he can appreciate the parallel.

    Summary

    Something about the new guy irked Eddie. Something familiar about him that Eddie couldn’t place. He was an enigma, secrets hidden in that blank stare. Who was this mysterious man, and where did he learn to do those things? Where had Eddie seen him before?

    “You can have my back any day.” Eddie offered, silently willing Buck to read between the lines and hear Eddie really saying that he knew. That Eddie wanted to trust him.

    Bobby returned before Buck could reply. “Nice work, fellas. Glad you both made it out of there.”
     
    “Guy’s a professional, sir. Was never really worried.” Buck smiled.
     
    He could see Bobby about to nag Buck about the honorifics when the grenade detonated, still in the ambulance. Bobby startled and whirled around to face the explosion. Eddie had barely flinched, but Buck hadn’t so much as twitched - just watched the wreckage burn with a far off look in his eyes.

     
    In which Buck joined the 118 after transferring to the Navy Reserves and struggled with becoming a civilian. Eddie showed him how to feel worthy again.

    Summary

    Buck knew what to do when Eddie got like this. Getting Eddie to talk about it had been like pulling teeth but eventually, he’d told Buck what he needed and had warned Buck that it would be hit or miss if it even worked. But hearing about it and seeing it with his own eyes was something completely different. 

    It wasn’t a morning Buck had woken up expecting but it was a morning where Eddie needed him the way he needed Eddie so many times. Eddie needed someone to catch him and Buck was more than happy to slide under to stop his fall.

     

    Eddie falls into Top Drop and Buck does everything he can to catch him.

    Summary

    They’re responding to a call on a bridge, and a car driving too fast doesn’t bother to swerve out of the way or slow down, leaving everyone to run for cover. Which, in Eddie’s case, looks a lot like making a head-first fifteen-foot drop over the guard rail to the rocks below them. 

    Buck watches him fall from the edge of the truck and swears the whole world comes to a standstill at that moment. It takes longer than he’d like to admit to get to him; Buck keeps losing his footing on the uneven ground and the nerves aren’t helping. Once they do, Buck can’t focus on anything else other than the way that Eddie isn’t moving, lying on the rocky ground like he was dropped there without a care in the world.

    OR

    For Bingo Square: Headaches/Migraines.

    Summary

    This wasn't how the call was supposed to go, but then again, when was it ever? Buck knows that, Eddie knows that, but Buck's always going to make sure Eddie makes it home to Chris. Eddie does the same for Buck.
