    Summary

    Buck closed his eyes, but all he could see was that moment when Eddie had been shot, replaying over and over The pillow smelled like Eddie, the shirt smelled like Eddie, the whole bed smelled like Eddie, but Buck wanted the real thing.

    And when Buck had left the hospital, Eddie had smelled like antiseptic and sterile hospital clothing.

    Buck turned over, pulling the other pillow close and wrapping himself around it. He squeezed his eyes shut, but saw Eddie just getting shot over and over again.

    He fumbled for his phone on the nightstand and pulled up Netflix, finding a nice, quiet documentary that he could watch until he hopefully passed out.

    ***

    The room was just starting to get light when Buck woke up. Netflix hadn’t asked him if he was still watching, so he hadn’t been asleep that long, but Christopher would probably be up soon, and he’d need all of Buck’s attention.

    “About time you woke up,” Eddie said from behind him.

    “Why didn’t you wake me then?” Buck replied, scrubbing a hand over his face.

    “You looked like you needed the sleep.”

    Buck shook himself, trying to wake up. “Yeah, well, if you hadn’t been sh—”

    Shot.

    What the actual fuck?

    Summary

    “You know, being stuck here isn’t actually the end of the world,” Chimney says, coming up to the table and picking up one of the smoke detectors. “It just feels like it, Buck. Trust me, I know.”
    “I’m pretty sure it might actually be the end of the world,” Buck says. “Considering this is the sixth time I’ve lived this day.”
    Chimney stares at him for a beat and then his eyebrows lift. “Wait, are you like – dude, are you in Groundhog Day?”

    Summary

    “Thanks for clearing it with Cap,” he says lowly, feeling oddly self-conscious under Buck’s knowing gaze.

    Because just Buck shrugs like it’s not a big deal, claps him on the shoulder and squeezes once. “Of course,” he says earnestly. “I told you he wouldn’t mind.”

    Eddie swallows back an emotion he doesn’t know how to name and bumps their shoulders together as they head for the stairs. He’d forgotten friendship could be like this, forgotten what the unconditional support of having a team around him felt like.

    He’s not sure he’s ever had friends like this though.

    *

    Eddie doesn't plan for Buck to become part of his and Christopher's family; it just sort of happens. He doesn't plan to fall in love with Buck either; that just sort of happens too.
