    Summary

    It’s luck, more than anything, that sees Buck stumbling out of the building mere seconds before it gives one final shudder and caves in on itself. His oxygen is almost out, his mask is cracked from a piece of falling debris, and there’s a cut on his forehead that’s dripping blood down his face.

    None of that seems to matter when Eddie crashes into him so forcefully that he almost knocks Buck off his feet.

     

    (Or, five times Eddie tells Buck he loves him, and the one time he says it with words.)

    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

    “I have to admit, I didn’t think I’d see you back here again outside of you being forced to see me,” Frank states plainly.

    “Neither did I.” They both smile and Eddie forces himself to try to relax. It doesn’t work.

    Or; Eddie is learning to admit he needs help. Sometimes help comes in the form of therapy.

    Summary

    The minutes pass, and the rain falls with a scattered tapping on the ground. He couldn’t even remember the last time he had seen it rain like this in LA, quiet and calming, leaving a nice undisturbed haze across the city skies. He wants to bask in it, even for a moment. Well...maybe not in the rain. Buck’s more than okay watching it afar from the awning in Eddie’s backyard.

    He knows he should head back, and eventually, he will.

    Just a little longer, Buck tells himself.

    ====

    A rainy day. Two cups of hot chocolate. And gentle conversation.
