    Summary

    Steve's eyes were drawn to a sudden flash of gold on the other side of the glass, like the glimmer of a penny in a water fountain. It swung from Billy's neck, catching the light like a star. He rolled down the window half-way and peered over.

    "Harrington." Billy said, like he was taking registration in homeroom.

    "What?"

    Billy rested his arm high on the roof of the car and looked around, like he was worried someone might listen in. "Words don't mean much but, for the record,"

    He sighed before he set his eyes on him firmly, jaw tight.

    "I'm sorry."

     
    The Summer of July 1985 had changed everything. Now, with the rest of the Summer and year ahead of Billy, he is left to come to grips with his issues and the aftermath. To claw his way to recovery, come to grips with his identity and forge his own way in the world.

    Summary

    It started when Max gave him Billy’s jacket. The leather one; the tough guy one; the one he wore on dates to impress whoever he wanted to; the one he ripped off before smashing Steve’s face in. That one… although in all fairness it probably started long before that. Maybe in the bathroom with Robin when she told him about Tammy Thompson, and the secret he wanted to spill, felt safe enough to confess, got stuck in his throat. Maybe it was all those times that asshole sauntered into Scoops Ahoy and made sailor jokes or called him ‘Captain Princess.’ Or maybe, most probably, it was the first time he ever locked eyes with that blonde dick. When Billy, chest glistening with spilt beer, the cheers of the party at his back, stalked across the room just to get to him. Predator walk, predator eyes; like he wanted to eat Steve whole. Billy had looked at him like that before he’d bashed Steve’s face in that night at the Byer’s too, out by the car with smoke and his wicked tongue between them; and wasn’t that just the kicker, he still wanted Billy after it all. After that hell of a fight, or epic beatdown, as Dustin liked to call it.

    But regardless, it started when Max gave him Billy’s jacket.

    Summary

    There are a lot of things Steve is self-conscious about, and there are a lot of things he isn’t. The former is what he feels this time, his lack of mental dexterity a sore spot he doesn’t want provoked.
