    Summary

    Buck is still touching him, hands wet and red, and he’s shaking. “You hold on for me, okay?” 

    Can do. Not that he knows why he needs to. Eddie’s done it before. Thinks if Buck asks, he’d hold on forever. That sparks something in him; he is waiting for Buck. He’s been waiting, but about what drifts just out of reach. He wants to—

    Pain explodes in Eddie’s chest and he makes a noise, one that makes Buck’s face screw up. “I’m sorry, I’m so fucking sorry.”

    Summary

    “Eddie?”

    Buck’s hand touches his shoulder and Eddie inhales sharply and comes back to himself. His eyes flick back to the phone—the screen now dimmed and black—then settle on the counter next to it as he swallows hard.

    “You okay?” Buck asks quietly.

    “She died today,” Eddie replies. “And I forgot. I forgot that it was today.”

    Summary

    Eddie makes himself comfortable at the other end of the couch, lifting Buck’s legs and putting them back down in his lap. His hand rests on Buck’s uninjured ankle, not caressing but sort of holding, touch achingly gentle.

    “You should try audiobooks,” he says. “Or maybe podcasts. Chris has been downloading them on my phone, some of them are pretty interesting.”

    “Sure,” Buck agrees sleepily. His leg doesn’t hurt so much anymore and he kind of wants to go for a run, hit his training goal for the day, but he’s warm and comfortable and it’s nice to just be here with Eddie. To just exist, without having to worry about what comes next.

     

    In which Buck reads a lot and all roads lead to him figuring out he's in love with his best friend.

    Summary

    “You told me once that I am one of the most important people in your life,” he says. “That you don’t know what you’d do if anything happened to me.” He waits for recognition for light Buck’s eyes, for the words to mean everything that they meant back then. “You never gave me the chance to tell you that the feeling is mutual, but—it is. You’re important, Buck, and I care about you, and I want you to be okay.”

    Buck is biting his lip so hard it’s probably going to bleed. He looks—desperate. Desperate to hear the words, to believe them.

    “That’s why I’m here,” Bobby tells him. Because you’re like a son to me. Because I love you. “Because I care—a lot—and that means I’m pretty invested in making sure you’re alright. It also means that I want to be here even when you’re not.”
