    Summary

    There are only so many things a mother can do about their child’s own child.

    But it doesn’t mean she doesn’t try.

    “Eddito,” Isabel says softly, as she approaches her grandson, sitting on the porch and leaning on the banister. His face is hard, too hard for a 12-year old, especially when his features are still soft around the edges. He looks up at the sound of her voice, and her heart warms at how his expression melts, and he meets her halfway, and straight into her arms.

    “Abuela,” Eddie whispers, and she holds him close. They’re already the same height, but he still curls around her, and presses her face on his shoulder. Such actions, such reactions, make it clear to her that her son has left, again.

    “Papa already left?” Isabel asks anyway, and Eddie stiffens, before pulling away. He nods to her, his shoulders slumping a little. “And Mama?”

    “She went with tía, too. I’m looking after the girls for the next few hours,” he says, and Isabel hums then, hooking arms with her now as they make their way into the house.

    Summary

    She opens her locker, giving him a sidelong glance. “So does Buck know you’re-“

    The rest of her question gets cut off by a quiet, disbelieving, “Eddie?” and she and Eddie turn just in time for Buck to slam straight into Eddie.

    Eddie takes a step back with the force of it but his arms come up around Buck immediately, hugging back just as fiercely. She catches sight of his blinding smile before he tucks his face into Buck’s shoulder and Lucy stares, can’t help it when they’re hugging like long-lost lovers being reunited.

    Buck pulls back first, hands still firmly on Eddie’s arms as he jostles him. “You asshole!” he exclaims with a laugh that sounds more than a littler watery. “I was literally at your house last night; why didn’t you say anything?!”

    “Wanted it to be a surprise,” he says, voice low and soft in a way that finally makes her turn away to pretend to be busy with her locker.
