    Summary

    Move on. Let it heal.

    Maybe that’s why Steve said yes when Max asked him to help move boxes out of Billy’s room after the dust settled. He could hear her voice. Too many. Too heavy.

    Just like his wounds. His grief. Too many. Too heavy.

    (Or, Steve steals the glass ashtray from Billy's bedside table and things start to go bump in the night.)

    Summary

    Steve wipes at some wetness on his cheeks, imagining what Billy would be saying if he could see him right now, in that fucking stupid, mocking voice of his:

    “Aw, are you cryin’ over me, Harrington?”

    Maybe Billy Hargrove had to die, so he could learn how to live.

    Summary

    "Hargrove is here." Robin's voice sounds like she's under water.

    "I know. I was there, too. We saw him come in, like, an hour ago." It was the first time he'd seen Billy conscious and on his feet since Starcourt. And tonight he had walked through the front door into a high school party where Steve and Robin were sitting at the top of the stairs waiting for their trip to kick in, and the whole world had started to tilt on its axis.

    He was here, in a leather jacket and those stupid tight jeans and that halo of curls, and all Steve could think about was the memory of hauling that mangled body up the broken escalator, through the ruins of the mall, warm blood soaking through his Scoops uniform at an alarming rate, Billy getting heavier and heavier with every step until he was an actual dead weight hanging off Steve's neck. He'd been right back in that parking lot, Max screaming Billy's name over the sound of an ambulance, and Steve putting his hand to Billy's blood-slick chest and finding only cold and the distinct lack of a heartbeat.

    Summary

    It's autumn of 1985. The summer changed everything, and it feels like nothing will ever be the same.

    But for Steve Harrington, strange seems to be the new normal.
