    Summary

    Buck doesn’t think that if he were to say, “I’m in a bad place”, that anyone would turn him away. Really, he doesn’t. The 118 has too many good, kind people for that.

    But every time he wants to open his mouth, to say something, to reach out to Eddie or Bobby or Hen or Chim, he hears Eddie yelling, “you’re exhausting.”

    —you’re exhausting, you’re exhausting, you’re exhausting—

    So each day he does his job and he laughs and he jokes and he pretends he’s the care-free goofball he’s always been. And each day he packs away his bruises and his worries, takes them home to his empty loft with its quiet rooms, and licks his wounds in silence.

    Summary

    Eddie’s mind had never been the safest place. It’s riddled with childhood ideals he could never reach, post-traumatic stress directly contrived from his time in the military, repression from years of convincing himself he was never meant to be exactly who he was, and guilt to glue it all together.

    He hasn’t given much thought to the way his mind worked against him because he always has something to reel him back. He had his wife, his child, his brothers-in-arms, his extended family, and now he has his team. But Eddie woke up this morning feeling like that wasn’t enough. Like he wasn’t enough.

    Summary

    “You should just move in,” Eddie said one night.  They were already laying in bed, Buck’s face half-buried in his pillow.

    “Where would I sleep, Eddie,” Buck deadpanned, sleep heavy in his voice.

    “Here,” Eddie said, not entirely sure how Buck missed that part.  “The same place you’ve been sleeping.”

    Bobby raised an eyebrow when Buck updated his address on all of the necessary paperwork, but Eddie wasn’t entirely sure what the big deal was.

    ~~~~~~~

    Buck and Eddie had always been unconventional. Neither of them gave it much thought – they were just them. Buck and Eddie
    - partners, best friends, co-parents – just as entangled in each other’s lives as any actual couple in the 118.

    Or, the story of how Buck and Eddie went about their relationship in entirely the wrong order.
