2 Works by Sunshine_on_Leith in 9-1-1 (TV)
Buck found himself alone in his apartment at the end of a 24h shift. Again. While it had been a few months since he had dropped the lawsuit and been reinstated, he couldn’t help but feel like things weren’t quite as they used to be before the truck bombing and everything that followed. Buck maybe wasn’t the brightest, but he wasn’t stupid. He knew well enough he had brought this upon himself.
Buck struggles with his place within the team as he is forced to confront events from his past he might not have been ready to deal with.
Buck was tired. He was physically and emotionally exhausted, the short amount of time they had spent in Texas draining him of all his energy. He slumped in his seat on the firetruck, intent on sleeping through as much of the drive back as possible until it was his turn to drive. From the corner of his eye, he saw Eddie wave goodbye to the 126, a wide grin on his face, before the dark-haired man climbed into the truck and slumped into the seat facing his.
“Those guys are so fun! They were great to work with.” Eddie said cheerfully.
Buck hummed non-committedly, resting his head against the window as Hen took the first driving shift.
“What’s wrong? I thought you were getting on with TK and Mateo?”
“I did, they’re good guys. I’m just tired.” Buck replied dismissively, closing his eyes.
