    Summary

    “Steve,” she says again, with more urgency, and now he’s sure it’s Max. “I need your help.”

    Steve’s pulse goes into overdrive. “Max, what’s wrong? I can get Hopper- ”

    “No!” she cuts him off, talking fast. “No cops. There’s no time and, and…it’s so cold out there and—and there’s just no time okay? You have to trust me. Please. You know the road I live on? I need you to come here now, but DO NOT stop at the house, just keep driving past it, but come as fast as you can and…” she hesitates “And—you’ll know when you see. You’ll understand.”

    Summary

    When Billy's done in the cereal aisle, there's so many fucking people ahead of him, in all of the lines, and he's got to go pick up Max, and now he's going to be late, and Dad's going to kill him, and.

    And Harrington's up by the front of one of the lines.

    He whistles, waves when he catches Billy looking at him, calls out, "Babe, I'm over here." When Billy pushes through the crowd, gets up to the counter, he can hear Harrington telling the cashier, in this weird soft fond voice, "I gotta just get him on a leash, or something; this is getting ridiculous."

    Billy raises an eyebrow.

    Harrington gives him an innocent smile. "What's wrong, babe?"

    Billy presses up against Harrington's back, loops his arms around Harrington, smiles at the blushing cashier. He ducks his head, just for a second, presses his face in against Harrington's neck, before he murmurs, "Goddamn, sweetheart. People don't need to know all of our business."



    ALTERNATIVELY: billy and steve 'pretend' to be gay boyfriends in love for what is essentially just extremely small-time personal gain.

    Summary

    Arthur and Eames have known each other since the military, but, just like everything with them, it's a little more complicated than that.

    ---

    “You and Arthur,” she starts, and then realises she has no idea how to finish this. She pauses, Dom has stopped mid-awful joke he’d been telling to Yusuf, and is staring at her with a look of dawning horror.

    “You and Arthur?” she tries, hoping it’s self-explanatory.

    Eames’ face has gone very still. Then he smiles, slow and dark; the kind of smile that gets him into people’s safes and then into their beds.

    “Wouldn’t you like to know,” he says, and Ariadne has absolutely no idea what to do with that.
