    Summary

    Buck floundered briefly, trying to find the words to explain what he felt. "I guess I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that the worst thing I could do to someone was deny them me."

    Summary

    Still off balance, Buck slams his left heel onto the roof, heaving forward to catch the collar of that yellow shirt. And there’s no conscious decision making here. It’s all instinct, and he’s grateful for it. If he’d given his overzealous mind the chance to consider another way, he would have missed his shot. Instead, his arms hurl the boy into the hands of another survivor...

    And his right foot misses the edge.

    OR

    Buck catches Chris before he rolls off the firetruck, and it's him who falls back into the retreating waters of the tsunami. Unconscious and seriously injured, he's unaware that his team has been searching for him, never giving up as the days pass.

    Summary

    Eddie groans, but he gets down on his knee, setting their beers on the pavement. He works to unknot the laces, then ties them again. He goes to stand, but Buck stops him with a hand on his shoulder.

    “Eddie…” he looks up to see that Buck’s eyes are the size of dinner plates. He leans on his knee, trying to understand why Buck is so flustered, and then he hears the shutter of a camera. In his peripheral, he sees that a crowd has gathered around them, and half of the people have their phones out, recording.

    Eddie’s eyes connect with Buck’s, and while he is panicked, Buck is trying so hard not to laugh that there are tears gathering in the corners of his eyes. The crowd must see it and misread it as Buck being overcome with emotion, because they coo in response.

    “Fuck,” Eddie curses under his breath, quiet enough that only Buck can hear him. “What do I do here?”

    Buck snorts, “Sorry man, I think you’ve got to commit now.”

    Summary

    “He doesn’t dance with Eddie. He deliberately doesn’t dance with Eddie. Buck knows he could crook a finger at him and Eddie would follow him wherever he wanted to go, but as much as he wants that, there’s something else he wants a little more.

    Tonight he’s craving that flash of heat that he sees every time he reaches past Eddie to touch someone else. The urge he knows that Eddie has to grab his hand and say, “My turn.” The way he’ll sit, looking for all the world like he’s patient and in control, waiting until they get home to come unraveled. Buck doesn’t want to wait. Buck wants to unravel Eddie now.”

    Or: Buck has a thing for Possessive!Eddie Diaz. But when teasing goes too far and feelings get hurt, he needs to make sure Eddie knows exactly how he feels about him.
