    Summary

    Clinging to a crumbling marriage, BJ hasn’t written to Hawkeye in five years. A phone call from an old friend after the death of Hawkeye’s father sends him across the country to fix his mistakes.

    Something like dread begins to pool in his stomach, seeping in through the carefully sealed cracks. Margaret wouldn’t call like this without it being an emergency, he reasons. If she wanted to get back in touch with him, she would write. This feels important.

    Margaret seems to steel herself. “Just…have you heard from Hawkeye lately?”

    Ice flows through his veins. His stomach drops. “No.”

    Summary

    Peg leaves BJ. Naturally, Hawkeye drops everything to fly 3000 miles and take up residence in his beach house.

    “You okay?” he asks gently.

    BJ nods. He’s more okay than he’s been in a long time. “I used to worry that if I were to see you again, it’d be like meeting a stranger.”

    “Come on,” Hawkeye says, smiling. “We were never strangers.”

    Summary

    _____________

    The impromptu inspection turns into a tune-up, and B.J.’s so thrilled to be in his element, so engrossed in the bike, that it takes a bit to notice Hawkeye’s fallen quiet behind him, dutifully handing over requested tools like they’re in surgery together. It’s perfect. Absolutely every feeling B.J.’s been chasing for years rolled up into the most natural of interactions. B.J. asks for grease rag to wipe his hands. Hawkeye offers a torn strip of terry cloth. Out of nowhere, sober as the day they said their not-goodbyes on that strip of blood-soaked dirt in Korea, Hawkeye says, “Erin thought you might be love with me.”

    For all of his dreaming, imagining how they’d finally find the time to hash things out after so many years apart, B.J. couldn’t have imagined he’d be on his knees in Hawkeye Pierce’s garage, wrist-deep in the guts of a ’59 Triumph Bonneville, betrayed by his own flesh and blood.

    _______

    San Francisco, 1972. Erin Hunnicutt drags her father to a war protest and sets in motion a chain of events that will bridge eighteen years of radio silence between B.J. Hunnicutt and Benjamin Franklin Pierce.

    Summary

    He leads them out into the alley behind the club, thankfully empty, and shoves Hawkeye up against the brick. “The mouth on you, my god,” he breathes, before ensuring Hawkeye has no air left in him to retort anything at all.

    Hawkeye can hear the rough bricks rubbing against his uniform, microscopic tears that will go unnoticed for months, all the while unraveling and pilling. He doesn’t want to stop. He wants to stay pinned until the wool is ripped and unfit for inspection. He wants to stand before MacArthur and Eisenhower, before Truman himself and say, ‘Look at me. Look at how much I care about your war.’

    San Francisco, 1951. Hawkeye Pierce spends one last night as a civilian. A year later, that night catches up to him.
