    Summary

    Buck said, "Look, I'm sorry I overheard that because it's personal, and you should be able to decide who gets to have that part of you." Eddie came out of his hunch a little and looked him in the eyes, and Buck felt a zing of giddy accomplishment. It maybe made him stupid. "But to be honest, I'm really flattered that Pepa thought a punk like me could get a guy like you."

    Eddie's eyes went huge, and under the sodium lights Buck could see his ears turning red.

    Shit. Back off, back off, Buck told himself. He said, "I mean, you look like you know how to file your taxes," and immediately wanted to smack himself in the face.

     

    Just two strangers hanging out after a tsunami, talking about being in the closet.

    Summary

    For the twenty-minute drive back to the station, Athena was left wondering exactly what could’ve come up that Maynard would feel was this sensitive. Maybe one of her CI’s had gotten into something, it could be an old case, although Athena couldn’t think of any recent ones that this could fall under the purview of.

    Athena had not expected to walk in and find a bleeding Evan Buckley sitting at her desk.

    Summary

    “No.” Bobby smiled at that; he had the same thought when the Mehta told him Buck’s response to turning down the medal. “Again, Buck’s not the same kid anymore. He’s not a kid.” Bobby told them again, although it sounded more like a reminder for Bobby than a reminder to them.
    Hen, as usual, was the first to catch on. She smiled to herself for a moment. “He’s a father now.”
    Chimney nodded, understanding dawning on Tanika and Ravi at that. “His reward was Chuck?”
    “Yeah.” Bobby smiled at them.

    In where Buck and Eddie get the family they want and deserve.

    Summary

    What really shook him was finding out that Buck had taken family leave.
    “What?” Eddie scrunched up his face when he read the text message from Chimney and Albert. He immediately called Chimney who told him that he had over heard Buck and Bobby talk about Buck going on parental leave.
    “Parental leave?” Eddie could feel his stomach churn, “Are you sure?”
    He could practically see Chim’s shit-eating grin. “Positive, looks like ol’Buckeroo fathered a kid or something.”
    “Or something.” Eddie murmured, he didn’t believe for a second that Buck fathered a child. Because for one thing, Buck would have TOLD him.
    There had to be something else up.

    In which Buck gets the family he never thought he could get, but definitely deserves.
