    Summary

    Evan Buckley-Nash has been many things over his life. But in the beginning, he was born to be Daniel Buckley’s saviour. He's never really reckoned with that fact – until he has to deal with his birth parents for the first time in almost two decades.

    Or, Miscommunication abounds again when the Buckleys come to town as Maddie juggles the demands of both her blood and found family, Buck spirals as he is forced to confront his long-buried trauma regarding his brother’s death (while trying to keep the whole trauma thing a secret) and also insists the visit has to be kept a secret from his (adopted) dad, Hen, Chim and Eddie are trying desperately to be supportive while also attempting to understand the truth of the Buckley siblings’ past, Bobby is hopelessly confused about what in the world is happening with his son and his crew, and of course let’s not forget that Eddie still has that little black box hidden in the back of his sock drawer just waiting for the perfect moment…

    In other words, things are definitely on course to blow up like a former-perfume factory on fire.

    Oh, and there are flashbacks

    (Or, to put it simply: it’s Evan Buckley-Nash Begins.)

    Summary

    “Bobby I can’t do this.”

    “I know kid, I know, I’m sorry.” Bobby murmurs as he pulls Buck against him. “I’m so sorry.”

    Buck lets himself sob twice before pulling it together by taking a deep breath, wiping the few tears away and pulling on a clean LAFD hoodie over his now clean chest.

    “Okay.” He exhales slowly. “I need to make a call.”

    Summary

    “Buck!” He looks up. His tears are blurring his sight, but he recognizes the figure standing in his doorway.

    “No,” Buck says to him. He shakes his head. “No.”

    “Buck,” Bobby’s voice is soft.

    “No!” Buck’s voice raises. “He’s not dead!”

    Bobby walks closer. In that stupid funeral firefighter suit people wear when telling family members about their fallen heroes, not unlike the military.

    “He’s not dead!” Buck screams. “Go away, he’s not dead! He’s not dead!” Bobby reaches out to him, and Buck fights against his hold, pushing the older man away. “No! Don’t touch me! He’s not dead! He can’t be dead! Eddie is not dead!”
    --

    Buck's life changes when he loses Eddie on a call and his body is never found. A funeral and a career switch later, Buck has to figure out how to live without the love of his life. He has to stay strong though because he needs to take care of Christopher.

    Summary

    “Hello.”

    "Hello, this is Principal Franklin and I'm calling from The Durand School. May I please speak with Mr. Evan Buckley-Diaz?"

    Eddie's looking at Buck with furrowed eyebrows waiting for Buck to explain why Chris' school is calling and Buck's looking at him like he doesn't know what's going on either.

    "This is Evan Buckley-Diaz, is everything ok?"

    Everyone in the loft stops what they are doing and because they're all nosey, all of them focus their attention on Buck so that they can hear what's going on.

    Buck can hear Chris' voice in the background of the call loudly saying, "Buck, don't tell dad!" Luckily his phone isn't on speaker so Eddie wasn't able to hear what Chris said.

    Summary

    Christopher thrusts his empty wrapper at Buck, then stares expectantly at him until Buck finishes his own ice cream. Buck tries hard not to laugh. Christopher is eager to continue their tour of the zoo, even though this isn’t their first or dozenth time here, and Buck appreciates the little boy’s enthusiasm, loves that it hasn’t dimmed no matter how many times he sees the same animals. Buck could do with looking at the world with the same childlike wonder, instead of stressing and worrying about worse-case scenarios. It’s the nature of the job, he knows, but maybe he should take some lessons from Christopher.

    “Ready to go, kid?” he asks, biting back a smile at Christopher’s put-upon sigh.

    “Yes!” He jumps off the bench, then sighs when Buck pulls him between his knees to attack him with a napkin. He has chocolate smeared all over his face. “Buck,” he whines, fidgeting and huffing impatiently.

    “Okay, okay. Hold your horses.”

    “I don’t have any horses.” His little nose scrunches, and Buck laughs. “Come on! Tigers next, Buck!”

    Ruffling Christopher’s messy curls, Buck stands and hands Christopher his crutches. “All right, Superman. Lead the way.”

    Summary

    Buck gets up and walks into the kitchen. He’s shocked at the things he sees because all of the ingredients are sitting on the kitchen table and Eddie’s just looking at them like he doesn’t know what to do first. So Buck takes pity on him and asks, “Eddie? Is everything ok?”

    Without looking up, Eddie sighs, runs one of his hands over his face and thinks, ‘It’s now or never’. Then he whisper shouts, “Buck…the truth is I—I…I don’t know how to cook.”

    Buck’s eyes go wide and then he starts laughing. He laughs so hard and so loud that his stomach starts hurting. He’s grabbing at his chest because he can’t catch his breath.

    Eddie laughs too because he knows he should have just admitted the fact that he can’t cook to Buck the last time he was there when they were reviewing Eddie’s VA paperwork.

    “Eddie why…” Buck’s still laughing and trying to catch his breath but he continues. “Why didn’t you just tell me that uh…you don’t know how to cook? I would have understood.”

    Summary

    “Chris.” He closed his eyes and listened to Chris’ breathing for a moment, and willed himself to match it. “Chris, I know I can’t promise everything will be perfectly ok but buddy,” he swallows down more tears, “I can promise that no matter what happens it’ll be ok.”

    “How can it all be okay Buck? We’re all going to die!” There’s the sound of harsh sobs from the other side of the phone, some from Chris but also some from his classmates.

    “It’s going to be okay Chris because I love you. And I love you dad. And no matter what happens we’ve got each other. And we’ve got Hen, and Chim and Maddie. And Bobby.”

    Summary

    When “Family of Edmundo Diaz?” is finally called, he’s halfway through telling them It’s just Eddie before he realizes it isn’t a doctor or nurse he’s talking to. His eyes latch onto the red bottom of their nametag.

    “Must be bad if they sent the social worker,” Buck says drily. They smile gently, and the look in their eyes says that isn’t an uncommon sentiment. Another glance at the tag tells Buck the social worker is Bailey, they/them.

    “Not necessarily, sir,” they say gently. “I’m looking for Eddie’s emergency contact and medical proxy, Evan Buckley.” Buck nods, gesturing loosely to himself.

    “That’s me- ‘s just Buck. Eddie okay?” Bailey nods, smiling again.

    “He will be. We’re not bad omens, Buck."

    In which Buck keeps walking right into realizations about his relationship with the Diazes. It kinda feels like he's the last one having them, actually.

    Eddie loves calling him baby and Buck loves being called baby, at least Eddie’s baby. Eddie likes switching it up too so it’s not just baby, but also mi amor, mi vida, sweetheart… there’s a whole plethora of endearments he uses and Buck enjoys all of them thoroughly.

    ***

    Summary

    Eddie kept rubbing Buck’s back while he sobbed and he kept reminding him that he was alive and right next to him.

    Eventually, Buck’s shoulders stopped shaking, he started sniffling and he tried his best to compose himself.

    Once he was finally able to speak, he wailed and shouted, “EDDIE, YOU—YOU CUT YOUR LINE! Why…Eddie, why—why did you cut it?”

    “Evan, it’s ok, I’m right here. I’m alive and know that I—I never meant to…scare you”.

    “Eddie, NO! We talked about this and we agreed that we wouldn’t be…separated from each other during rescues. So I need to know why you cut your line. Eddie, I almost…I literally lost it when the well collapsed.”

    Summary

    Buck could barely hear the conversation over the rushing in his ears, saw Taylor shift to stand, and then there was a knock at the door.

    “Are we expecting someone else?” Taylor asked through clenched teeth. Buck exchanged a look with Albert, who shrugged.

    “I’ll go get it,” Buck said. He put down his glass of wine and went to the door. At first, he saw no one, but he glanced down and felt his heart drop into his feet. “Christopher?”

    Summary

    It's quite magical to actually have fireworks around them as they kiss. Buck had always felt them, imagined them in a very cartoony way. Now it’s real. The ground shakes slightly underneath his feet with the loud rumbles. The lights flicker against his closed eyelids. And Eddie’s mouth is warm and loving against his.

    Summary

    After being abandoned by his girlfriend, Eddie spends seven years in the military and is discharged after being shot. Back on his feet, he decides to find her trace and settle accounts with her, but the secret he's about to discover will call everything into question.

    I had several feedback on translation problems on this fic and I thank you for pointing out all these mistakes that I missed.
    I'm trying to do it again and hopefully I could clean up the mistakes.
    I will continue to post as soon as the correction is made on the first published chapters.
    English is not my first language but I never stop trying to improve myself.
    Thank you for your help and your patience.

    Thanks to Neal_Glitter_Vampire for your review and all your advice.
    You're an angel.
