    Summary

    When Richie sits down beside Eddie at their company's First Aid course, he thinks, oh, he's a little cute. Cute in the way a forty year old man can be, which turns out to be a lot. Probably not that hot, but hot in the kind of way someone is when you've known them for years and years, when you’ve kind of forgotten what they look like because they’re just them, you know?

    Eddie is a forty year old man whose wife is his best friend (which probably wouldn’t be so bad if she weren’t also his only friend), so he’s just excited he’s found someone new to hang out with. But when Myra suggests that maybe Richie doesn’t want to be just friends, he finds himself

    (confused scared happy what the fuck)

    Summary

    The sign for the event looks significantly different than the invitation.

    “A Valentine’s dance?” Eddie squeaks at him, grinding his rolly suitcase to a halt.

    Sure enough, a loopy red cursive “after-auction Valentine’s Day dance” accompanies the ridiculous imagery.

    Richie wants to laugh - or maybe cry - it’s hard to tell the difference with Eddie staring at him like he personally assigned the theme and bought the tacky heart-shaped balloons to pile into the lobby.

    “I didn’t… know,” is all Richie can come up with.

    Summary

    "So, what’s your damage, Eds?” Richie says.

    Eddie blinks down at the walkie. He’s so tired, he’s been hiking all day and it’s only sheer exhaustion that’s keeping him from freaking out about how itchy he feels right now and how he doesn’t see a shower anywhere in here. He scrubs at his eyes and then presses the button again. “Excuse me?”

    “People take this job when they wanna get away from shit,” Richie says casually, like they’re discussing the weather. “So what’s wrong with you?”

    “I — that’s — what the fuck’s wrong with you?” Eddie splutters. He’s way too fucking tired for this. Instinctively, he curls in the fingers of his left hand, running his thumb over the pale band of skin on his ring finger.

    Richie laughs, a scratchy sound that makes Eddie’s chest tighten. “Hey man, maybe I just like trees.”

    --

    Or, Eddie Kaspbrak, newly divorced, takes a summer job as a fire lookout in the Shoshone National Forest, with only the voice on the other end of his walkie talkie to keep him company. Inspired by the video game Firewatch.
