    Summary

    Billy discovers Steve's biggest secret five months into their relationship.
    It's not the monsters.
    That one comes out before they're even together.

    It's also not the hairspray.
    Billy finds that the first morning he stays over.

    It's not even the fact that, although he usually orders take out or heats up a frozen dinner, Steve can actually cook like a pro.
    Steve saves that reveal for exactly one month after they get together.

    No.
    The biggest secret is Steve’s damned stuffed toy. His little dog. The saggy, baggy bean filled sack of love that he’s had since he was tiny.

    Summary

    Billy is not, by nature, the kind of person who likes to be overly helpful. He doesn’t go out of his way for people he doesn’t know. He’s not especially charitable.

    And yet here he is, taking time out of his Friday night, setting up tables and supervising idiots with no upper body strength who think they can move a whole stack of chairs on their own. He has better things to do than hang out at work and chaperone a bunch of middle-schoolers trying to score their first kiss to some truly grating top 40 shit.

    Summary

    “If I want to ogle the neighbor, it’s my right as a free person,” Steve said. Robin snorted. “It’s not my fault I have eyes and he looks like that!”

    “Like a dirty frat boy who thinks extra deodorant equates to a shower?” Robin asked, nose wrinkling. Steve sniffed, pouting ever so slightly.

    “Your lesbian tastes don’t understand it.”

    Summary

    “Do you know why I fell in love with you?” he asks a while later, turning Steve’s attention away from Bob Seger’s voice floating out of the closed front door.

    Steve feels his eyebrows reaching his hairline because getting Billy Hargrove to be this open about anything ever, willingly, takes weeks’ worth of work and deflection. Billy likes to keep what's his very close to home. So it can’t be taken away from him, Steve likes to think, when he’s not feeling frustrated about it. If Billy wants him to know this now, he must have his reasons, even when he’s already said so much more than most nights.

    “Are you implying it was something other than my dashing looks, silky hair, and amazing ass?” Steve says around a smile, giving Billy an out if he feels like taking it.

    -

    Billy is drunk and in love, Steve is very patient, everyone has deep feelings coming out of nowhere. That's marriage, babey!

    Summary

    “I met him in the office. Let me introduce you,” Sandy said as she touched Steve’s forearm and walked him over to Billy. “Steve Harrington, this is-”

    “Billy Hargrove,” Steve said. He held out his hand.

    Billy smiled up at Steve, his eyes full of mischief, just like they were when he was 17 -- except this time there was less vitriol there and more amusement. “Pretty boy.”

    Sandy smiled. “You two know each other?”

    “We went to high school together,” Billy said.

    “He kicked my ass,” Steve said as he took the seat next to Billy.

    Sandy sat next to Steve. “This is a story I’ve got to hear.”
