    Summary

    Eddie grins. “Yeah I get that. So can I ask why you applied for the room? No offence but you’re not exactly the kind of candidate I expected.”

    Buck laughs, ducking his head. That’s probably true.

    “I, uh, I’ve been staying at my girlfriend’s place while she’s travelling but um, my sister moved to LA recently and sort of made the point that I could be overstaying my welcome? Or, well- actually she tried to tell me my girlfriend’s cheating on me and I need to get over it and move out of her place.” Buck shakes his head, eyes widening at what he just implied. “She’s not! Cheating, I mean. She’s just- trying to find herself after losing her mom. She just needs a little space, y’know?”

    At least, that’s the excuse Buck’s giving Abby for why she hasn’t called him in over two weeks.

    Eddie nods with a vague sort of expression on his face like he hadn’t expected him to overshare that much. Which, oops.

    *

    In which Eddie decides to rent out his spare room to help with mortgage repayments right around the time Buck decides to move out of Abby's place after some not so gentle prodding from Maddie. It's a coincidence. Or serendipity. Or maybe just really good timing.

    Summary

    They’ve been texting and talking for eight days now, Buck is absolutely infatuated with the guy, and he’s also—terrified. On some level, he knows Eddie must be conventionally attractive; he’d dated (or just slept with) Ben, after all, and Buck knows that Ben has a type. But he’s more than a little worried that he’ll look at Eddie and not feel anything, and then he’ll spend the entire eleven hour flight freaking out about it.

    He stares down at his phone, flips over to his messages and scans through them. It’s just after midnight back home, which means that Maddie’s asleep, and she’s the only one who really knows about Eddie, so he can’t even attempt Hen (who, unlike Chim, would immediately reach out to someone she knew at another station to get every last bit of information) or, God forbid, Ana, who might actually kill him for jumping from Ben to Eddie so fast.

    But on the off-chance she wouldn’t—she would definitely call him a coward for not picking up.

    He calls Eddie back.

    Summary

    It feels a little bit like skipping church on Sunday.

    Like some gradual inevitability that Eddie probably saw coming long before it escalated, but it still comes as a surprise when he wakes up one day and realizes it’s been a couple of weeks since he last went to church with his grandmother.

    And then he just — never goes back.

    It feels like that, only here he’s somehow still in the process of digesting the truth, and he still believes he’s going to go back, one day. He’s just too busy this week. He hasn’t slept right. Christopher’s too tired. Some combination of the three.

    Buck giving his back to Eddie to focus solely on Taylor Kelly feels a little bit like realizing he’s skipped out on church for the past couple of weeks, and for a terrifying minute, he wonders if this means he’s never going back.
