    Summary

    Something about the new guy irked Eddie. Something familiar about him that Eddie couldn’t place. He was an enigma, secrets hidden in that blank stare. Who was this mysterious man, and where did he learn to do those things? Where had Eddie seen him before?

    “You can have my back any day,” Eddie offered, silently willing Buck to read between the lines and hear Eddie really saying that he knew. That Eddie wanted to trust him.

    Bobby returned before Buck could reply. “Nice work, fellas. Glad you both made it out of there.”
     
    “Guy’s a professional, sir. Was never really worried,” Buck smiled.
     
    He could see Bobby about to nag Buck about the honorifics when the grenade detonated, still in the ambulance. Bobby startled and whirled around to face the explosion. Eddie had barely flinched, but Buck hadn’t so much as twitched - just watched the wreckage burn with a far off look in his eyes.

     
    In which Buck joined the 118 after transferring to the Navy Reserves and struggled with becoming a civilian. Eddie showed him how to feel worthy again.

    Summary

    Eddie shrugs. “Christopher mentioned to Daniel that Buck and I are partners. I mean, sure, it’s a little weird that she invited him over as well, but—”

    “Partners,” Hen interrupts, “like work partners?”

    Eddie and Buck glance at each other. “Uh, yeah?” Eddie says. “What other type of partner?”

    Hen stares at them for a moment, before she bursts out laughing. “You dumbasses. She thinks you’re together.”

     

    or, Eddie joins the PTA.

    Summary

    Spoilers for 4x14 Survivors

    Bobby considers asking Buck again how he’s really doing—the bags under his eyes telling a different story to the one coming out of his mouth—but he learnt a long time ago that the best tactic when it came to Evan Buckley was to wait him out.

    So Bobby lets the silence stretch and settle, with little more than the steady whirring and beeping of the hospital machines at his side to encroach on the quiet.

    And sure enough, as it always does, Bobby’s patience pays off.

    .

    In the aftermath of the shooting, Buck visits Bobby in the hospital, and they have a long-overdue conversation.
