    Summary

    "So, what’s your damage, Eds?” Richie says.

    Eddie blinks down at the walkie. He’s so tired, he’s been hiking all day and it’s only sheer exhaustion that’s keeping him from freaking out about how itchy he feels right now and how he doesn’t see a shower anywhere in here. He scrubs at his eyes and then presses the button again. “Excuse me?”

    “People take this job when they wanna get away from shit,” Richie says casually, like they’re discussing the weather. “So what’s wrong with you?”

    “I — that’s — what the fuck’s wrong with you?” Eddie splutters. He’s way too fucking tired for this. Instinctively, he curls in the fingers of his left hand, running his thumb over the pale band of skin on his ring finger.

    Richie laughs, a scratchy sound that makes Eddie’s chest tighten. “Hey man, maybe I just like trees.”

    --

    Or, Eddie Kaspbrak, newly divorced, takes a summer job as a fire lookout in the Shoshone National Forest, with only the voice on the other end of his walkie talkie to keep him company. Inspired by the video game Firewatch.

    Summary

    Eddie shook his head, lips quirking upwards in a confused half-smile that Richie was immediately drawn to. “You seem stupid familiar,” he said with a laugh.

    “I don’t think we know each other,” Richie replied, then added, like the moron he was, “I’d remember you.”

    This guy wasn’t the sort you forgot.

    Summary

    “Come on, Eds, I’m pretty sure Bill Denbrough was everyone’s first crush.”

    “Not mine.”

    The words are out of his mouth before he can stop them. 

    Silence engulfs the room and Eddie finds himself almost missing the tranquility of death.

    “Who did you have a crush on then?” Richie asks, his tone sharp, his face unreadable as his arm drops like an anvil from Bill’s shoulder.

    Suddenly, he’s barely a foot away, staring down at Eddie.

    Their eyes lock. 

    "Last time I checked this was your interview, Rich. Not mine."

    (Companion piece to "Exit, Pursued by a Twunk" from Eddie's POV)
