Eddie rubs a hand over his face. “Okay—okay, I believe you—let me just—”
And then he stops. Because he hears it too. A small clank followed by the tiniest mew.
Eddie blinks, crosses around to the front of the truck, and presses the button on his key fob to pop the hood. When he lifts it—
Wide, round eyes stare back at him amidst dirty, matted fur. The kitten curled up in his engine bay makes another small noise and presses closer to the battery.
…yeah, Eddie thinks. Chris is going to be late for school.
“I want to marry you.”
Buck doesn’t skip a beat, doesn’t even look away from the TV, when he responds, “Okay, but I think you need to get me a ring first.”
- Part 2 of drabbles
Isabel calls to tell them Eddie's been shot on a Thursday afternoon and by lunch on Friday Helena and Ramon are landing at LAX. When they land, they learn Eddie's already home recovering and has been for two weeks.
Or, Helena (and Ramon) tries to find a way back into Eddie's life and doesn't know what to make of finding Buck around every corner she turns.
“We’re here for our grandson,” Helena says.
“Chris is still sleeping,” Buck says.
“I meant, we’re here to take him back to Texas,” Helena clarifies.
“Yeah,” Buck says. He’s too tired, way too tired to be tactful. “Over my dead body.”
An accident on a call leaves Buck with custody of Chris after Eddie is... missing presumed.
While they navigate their new family circumstances -- and fight to stay together, despite Eddie's parents' best efforts -- a John Doe wakes up in a coma ward with no memory of his own life beyond the knowledge he has a son named Christopher and, somehow, he needs to get home.
