    Summary

    "As if you never gave your parents the silent treatment," Buck tells him after hearing the story at work the next day.

    "Yeah, but that's the point," Eddie grumbles as they make their way upstairs from the locker room, "I don't want to be the parent who's making him give me the silent treatment."

    Or: Chris is growing up, talking to Eddie in different ways, and maybe teaching Eddie a thing or two.

    Summary

    Six years ago, Buck would have no problem with dying in a wildfire. There was a certain breath of relief he’d get, lying in his bed and dreaming of the call, the time of death, the bell ringing at his funeral, the unfortunately comforting fact that somebody would have to attend his funeral in order to ring the bell. He figured it was just a way to come to terms with that fact that his rate of dying went up ten-fold with his new job.

    Dr. Copeland called it a form of passive suicidal thoughts, and the scary part about hearing that term for the first time is that he wasn’t scared of the term at all when she said it. She went on for the whole hour-long session about it, and Buck didn’t really feel anything, more like he thought he should’ve been taking notes, expecting her to tell him there was going to be a quiz over this the next time they met.

    The problem now is, that heroic, suicidal dream was six years ago, and Dr. Copeland was almost two years ago. The problem with dying this way now, is that he doesn’t feel like going out this way anymore. He doesn’t feel like going out at all.

    Summary

    “I wanted to speak with you about the tests,” Doctor Abrams says, with a lilt to her voice. Buck doesn’t know her, but he knows that lilt. He’s a first responder, every first responder knows the sound of that inflection, when you have something you’re not looking forward to breaking to the patient, but you have to. He, himself, has been on the receiving end of this tone too many times to count.

    He never thought that someone would be using that tone of voice about his dick of all things.

    He frowns, shifting his grip on his steering wheel nervously. “Yeah, o-of course. Were... Are there any concerns? You know, I was on blood thinners for a while, so I had a problem with anemia—”

    “Your iron levels were fine,” Doctor Abrams cuts him off with a gentle voice. “Nothing was wrong with your blood work.”

    (*)

    or: Buck was meant to get in, get out, and get on with his life when it came to donating his sperm. He didn’t expect this.

    Summary

    “Mmm, I dunno man, I think we maybe need to get you out of the house,” he says instead, with mock-seriousness, “when was the last time you hung out with other adults?” he hears Eddie inhale but interrupts him immediately, “Correction: when was the last time you hung out with adults, outside of work, without kids to worry about,”

    Eddie makes an aborted sound and then doesn't even attempt to defend himself.

    “Your silence is very telling,” Buck grins.

    Buck takes Eddie for a night out. It, of course, ends in dramatic revelations.
