    Summary

    Michael passed out in his truck a half mile from the junkyard, the fever panic of seeing Max’s lifeless body floating in that pod finally succumbing to the weight of days without sleep, to the adrenaline crash of weeks on edge.

    He woke up to the frantic patting of Alex’s hands against his cheeks, to the shout of his name through the alarm beeping of a car door left ajar.

    Summary

    “I know lifting's a bad idea but I’m feeling.” Shame twisted up in Billy’s gut, and he toyed at his lasagna with his fork. “I don’t feel as. I don’t know. Confident.” His muscle mass was not as bulky as it used to be -- his abs and biceps just a shadow of what they once were. He had a soft little belly now. And then there were the scars. Dark pink floral patterns of scars all wound over his back, sides, and abdomen.

    Suddenly the thought of shirtless summer weather struck dread in his heart. For now, long-sleeved henleys and sweatshirts provided the perfect way for him to hide. It was literally the only time he’d been thankful for winter.

    “Hey,” Harrington said from across the table. He paused until Billy looked up to his eyes. His tone grew delicate and serious. “I’m not fucking around, okay? You. Look. Good.”

    And the way that Harrington looked at him -- brown eyes soft, his gaze lingering on Billy’s face. On his eyes. Well, maybe he meant it.

    “Yeah?” Billy asked. He felt his face heating. “You think so?”

    Harrington took the last bite of his lasagna. “Definitely.”

    Summary

    And it’s all Billy’s fault, really, showing up at Scoops just to tease him, draw him in. Poke and prod at Steve’s weakness with a smirk on his stupid pretty face just to back away, just before Steve can make the very dumb decision to try to touch him. He always does it; stretches himself out just so, peacocking for Steve, and then turns the corner when Steve’s seconds from just letting go.

    (head over heels)

    Billy loves his job as at the Hawkins Community Pool. It's even better now that Steve Harrington's a lifeguard, too.

    Summary

    Billy’s hands end up cradling Steve’s face again, feeling something warm blooming behind his ribs, and maybe they’re a little pathetic — lying in a hotel room in Ohio, getting misty eyed as they make out — but Steve feels like home and everything holy and it’s fine.
