    Summary

    Somewhere in their phone calls after Derry 2.0, Richie and Eddie had decided to finally take that road trip. Richie would fly in from LA, then they’d drive back there from New York.

    It’ll be just like it could’ve been, Richie had said once.

    (Or, Eddie and Richie resume.)

    Summary

    "Rich," Eddie says heavily. Meaningfully, and Richie holds his breath, both afraid and hopeful that Eddie is about to say something really sappy, like I always knew and it didn't matter to me, or you know I support you no matter what. Eddie takes a deep breath before he speaks, and Richie closes his eyes, braced for it. "I didn't look at your dick pics."

    "Well hey, Eds, thanks," Richie says, laughing incredulously. "Thanks for that."

    Summary

    “If you were in LA, I’d invite myself over to your apartment, and bring you bad takeout, and we could have like, a movie night.”

    Eddie huffs a quiet laugh. “What, would you climb through my window?”

    “Nah, dude, we’re forty, I’d use the front fuckin’ door,” he says, gratified to hear Eddie’s snort of laughter on the other end of the line. “You’d be on the top floor anyway. Penthouse shit. I’d fall and break my skull open trying to get in.”

    “No you wouldn’t,” Eddie says. “Your head’s like titanium. Thickest skull around.”

    “You’re the worst,” Richie whines. “Be nice to me when I’m bleeding out on the ground outside your beautiful Los Angeles apartment. Cradle me.”

    “I can’t,” Eddie says. “You’re too heavy.”

    “Guess I’m not allowed to die, then,” Richie says.

    “Nope. Not ever.” Eddie pauses. “You’re still allowed to crawl in my window, though. You’re the only one who ever was.”

    --

    Richie catches up on a few decades' worth of phone calls.

    Summary

    "Did you see Stan's email?"

    "Yes," Eddie says and the 's' sounds sharp and jagged on Richie's end. "I've already spoken to Hayworth to ask if I can have the Friday off. Asshole better give it to me, I haven't taken time off since fucking January."

    Richie fiddles with the zipper of his jacket for lack of a better thing to do with his hands and asks, "So you're coming?"

    "If Hayworth lets me go."

    "If Hayworth lets you go."

    "It'll be good to see everyone," Eddie says softly.

    It'll be good to see you, Richie hears.

    "Yeah, man." He swallows. "It's been a while."

     

    OR:
    Richie sees Eddie for the first time in months and has no idea how to act.
