    Summary

    I’ll see you around is still clattering around in Buck’s head while he unlocks the door of his ground floor duplex and fumbles along the wall for the light switch. Buck 2.0 would have grabbed onto that like a lifeline, angling for a date and a relationship with the hot, funny guy who’s been showing up week after week to order the same drinks and unsubtly check him out. Maybe it even would have worked out - Jay has lonely eyes, and he’d sounded like he meant it.

    Buck pushes that thought down as deep as he can and bends to greet Sunshine. He knows it’s pathetic, holding one sided conversations with a dog in a barely decorated apartment two thousand miles away from anyone who’s ever claimed to love him, but at the same time...nobody really expected him to survive having a ladder truck dropped on him and all the surgeries that followed. Anything he does at this point, even just getting out of bed and putting on his leg, is pretty damn impressive.

    At least that’s what he has to keep telling himself.

    Or, Buck and Jay are both lonely and deeply traumatized. Maybe they can muddle through it together.

    Summary

    With shaking hands Ian picks up the remote, clicks ON and watches the screen slowly blink to life. He clicks to the first news station he can think of and within seconds his eyes are transfixed on a reporter standing in front of an overturned fire truck. "Ladder Truck" Buck's voice in his mind reminds him. 118. The numbers stare back at him. 118.

    Buck. No, it can't. No. He's frozen to the spot. The camera angle changes to an aerial view. The reporter's voice echoes in his head but he takes nothing in all he can see is the tiny figure lying trapped partway underneath the ladder truck.

    Blood is rushing in his head. No, it can't be Buck. Not his brother. Without conscious choice, he's moving closer to the TV staring at the person. Lying there. Unmoving.

    “The explosion occurred 30 minutes ago, though ask anyone here and it feels like a lifetime, no word yet on the condition of the firefighter. Every- Wait!”

    Summary

    The crunch of glass under the kid’s feet is too close, too loud. The broken windshield of the truck shifts and shatters further. Something pops and the truck rocks, sending another wave of inescapable fire up Buck’s leg.

    Everything hurts. Everything hurts and he’s alone and he wants to go home. He doesn’t want to die.

    Summary

    He’s shaking now, there’s no way to hide it. He’s stuck in a loop of that moment, the picture of it warping more and more as time passes. The smoke and all the sirens illuminated in his head. It’s bleeding together with the fire that killed his family- his sweet children. Bobby craves to hold them so badly; wishes he could think of their faces without a tragedy being attached.

    I want my kids! …I couldn’t protect them from me.

    Athena’s hand on his shoulder startles him, but the look on her face doesn’t waver. Bobby knows he probably looks like a mess right now, but he can’t help it.

    “C’mon,” she says, firm and gentle all at once. “Let’s take a walk.”
