First it’s someone who isn’t you. Maybe someone who isn’t even close to you. Then comes the irritation, the secrets, the yelling. The throwing, the screaming, the blaming. The punching of the wall where your face had been just a second ago.
It always started somewhere. One time was a coincident. Maybe paranoia, maybe he was just trying to find mistakes in what made him feel happy because part of him still doubted he deserved happiness, right?
But Buck had ignored his fair share of “One times” in the past few months. So what, Eddie yelled now. He freaked out now. He had secrets now. It was just that one thing.

One-shots inspired by different episodes or scenes. Stories are not related to each other unless noted. I have marked the series complete because of this, but if you enjoy the style, do subscribe as I'm sure other episodes will provide inspiration.
Look, the cost of living in Los Angeles is insane, and public servants make nothing. Lacking savings, an inheritance, or a spouse with a high-earning job, Buck turns to a side gig to help pay is rent. And what side gig is perfect for a gorgeous man with no shame?

“Oh my God, he’s right.”
“The world has turned upside down.”
