    Summary

    “By day,” Buck says into the handheld camera, “we’re firefighters, but by night-"

    “Also firefighters,” Eddie interrupts. “We work 24 hour shifts.”

    Buck pouts at him. “Come on, Eddie! It’s for the video.” He looks back at the camera. “By day, we’re firefighters, but by night? Ghost hunters!”

    Eddie blanches. “Oh god,” he says, “Am I a ghost hunter? I don’t want to be a ghost hunter.”

     

    Their first video gets fifty thousand hits, practically overnight.

    Summary

    Finding out that Bobby didn't believe he was ready, didn't think he could do it, that he'd be a liability to the others, that was gutting, like physically painful. It pulled the rug out from under him, and Buck's struggling with how he's meant to pull himself up from this.

    He spots the card on his table, the lawyer from the other day, the one who--

    Summary

    This is— How could— The phone shakes in Buck’s hand, as he backs up against the kitchen counter, fingers moving on autopilot to make a call. “Hey, are you busy? Can… Can you come over, I think— I think someone broke into my loft?” It’s definitely not a maybe, someone absolutely did. The proof is in all the belongings he has strewn around the place.

    Buck and Eddie's lives take a twist just as they're starting to get their heads out of their asses and broaching their shared feelings.

    Summary

    Buck refuses to pout about it, though. He’s not a child, and he’s not so selfish and immature. Buck’s a grown man who has a grasp on how relationships work. He’s perfectly fine with seeing Eddie less if it means things are going well between Eddie and Ana.

    Buck can deal with it.

    Summary

    Buck said, "Look, I'm sorry I overheard that because it's personal, and you should be able to decide who gets to have that part of you." Eddie came out of his hunch a little and looked him in the eyes, and Buck felt a zing of giddy accomplishment. It maybe made him stupid. "But to be honest, I'm really flattered that Pepa thought a punk like me could get a guy like you."

    Eddie's eyes went huge, and under the sodium lights Buck could see his ears turning red.

    Shit. Back off, back off, Buck told himself. He said, "I mean, you look like you know how to file your taxes," and immediately wanted to smack himself in the face.
