    Summary

    When Richie sits down beside Eddie at their company's First Aid course, he thinks, oh, he's a little cute. Cute in the way a forty year old man can be, which turns out to be a lot. Probably not that hot, but hot in the kind of way someone is when you've known them for years and years, when you’ve kind of forgotten what they look like because they’re just them, you know?

    Eddie is a forty year old man whose wife is his best friend (which probably wouldn’t be so bad if she weren’t also his only friend), so he’s just excited he’s found someone new to hang out with. But when Myra suggests that maybe Richie doesn’t want to be just friends, he finds himself

    Summary

    "So, what’s your damage, Eds?” Richie says.

    Eddie blinks down at the walkie. He’s so tired, he’s been hiking all day and it’s only sheer exhaustion that’s keeping him from freaking out about how itchy he feels right now and how he doesn’t see a shower anywhere in here. He scrubs at his eyes and then presses the button again. “Excuse me?”

    “People take this job when they wanna get away from shit,” Richie says casually, like they’re discussing the weather. “So what’s wrong with you?”

    “I — that’s — what the fuck’s wrong with you?” Eddie splutters. He’s way too fucking tired for this. Instinctively, he curls in the fingers of his left hand, running his thumb over the pale band of skin on his ring finger.

    Richie laughs, a scratchy sound that makes Eddie’s chest tighten. “Hey man, maybe I just like trees.”

    Summary

    “Richie is an award winning comedian and voice actor, originally from Derry, Maine. He’s a six-foot-two Pisces, and in case dinner goes very badly- CPR certified,” the auctioneer recites joylessly, while Richie is in stitches at her side. “Richie enjoys long walks on the beach, 1-800 number jingles, and debating the civil rights of robots. You can select any venue in New York for your dinner, but Richie says he especially enjoys Thai food and frozen custard and describes himself as a bottomless pit-”

    Richie taps the auctioneer's shoulder and leans into the mic. “That’s a typo. That should say just ‘bottom’.”

    While Richie gets roped into a bachelor auction, Eddie struggles with his own worth.

    Summary

    People look at Richie different now, talk to him different. Care about him too much, at times, make him sick with how much they care about him. In a good way. It’s scary as fuck, being seen. But good. It’s good.

    It’s Christmas now, and it’s so good. It reminds Richie of last year, reminds him of his darkest moments, yes, but it also reminds him of everything that’s changed since then. How far he’s come. So that’s good, too.
