    Summary

    Buck—Buck is knitting.

    Eddie blinks, rubs his eyes. Yeah, Buck is knitting: thick fingers a little clumsy as Bobby shows him how to purl stitch with a soft-looking ball of pink ombre wool. “You’re knitting,” Eddie says, flummoxed, because Buck’s hands look huge and ridiculous on the needles, but the way he’s holding them so carefully, the pink tip of his tongue pursed between his lips as he concentrates, is making Eddie feel—well, something. He’s not sure what. And then Buck pulls the stitch from one needle to the other, looks up to meet Eddie’s eyes with an embarrassed smile, and, yeah, okay. He knows what he’s feeling.

    Summary

    The whole point of working on a cruise ship was to escape everything, so the last thing he needs is to run into a guy who makes him a little too honest on the first day of a month long stint around Europe.

    Summary

    “I’m just thinking about you,” he says, simply, because there aren’t the words to say the rest of it, to say the whole of it, to take everything that’s in Buck’s head right now and lay it out in front of him because to do so would take three lifetimes, at least, and Buck already has plans for this one.

    Eddie crooks an imperfect eyebrow, and Buck loves him. He says, “yeah, but you’re also thinking about breakfast.”

    Summary

    “Buck,” Eddie says, and tugs on one of the uneven strings of Buck’s hoodie, and then Buck’s crying again.

    “You’ve gotta stop talking to me, man,” he tries to laugh, and Eddie doesn’t know what to do with his goddamn hands, because he should absolutely be reaching out, should be holding Buck close, but he’s so fucking afraid.

    in which tears bring clarity.

    Summary

    “Go to bed, Buck,” Eddie says quietly as they watch Ana make French toast. She has to open three drawers to find the skillet.

    “It’s otherwise occupied.” They turn as one to look at Christopher on the couch, watching re-runs of the Animaniacs. Eddie’s mouth folds into a smile that dimples his cheek almost imperceptibly, and Buck wants to ask Ana if she knows it’s there. If she could trace the uneven curve of Eddie’s mouth in the dark, the gentle tick to the right.

    He’s tired. He sips his juice.

    “Mine’s free.”

    Ana looks up from the stove. Buck wonders if their knees fit together like his and Eddie’s do, when they’re pressed, leg-to-leg, in the engine.

    “Yeah,” he finds himself saying. “Thanks, Eds.”
