    Summary

    "Please, believe me Max, it's not my fault," Billy groaned. "I tried to stop him, okay? I did. Please believe me, Max."

    Max sniffled and looked at through the glass at her step-brother. His skin was red and raw from the heat, but his face held pain that she had never seen before, not even when Neil beat him. She felt her bottom lip quiver with fear, the dread of not knowing what to do washing over her. Max peeled her hand off the window and reached for the pipe.

    "Stop!"

    "No!"

    "Max!"

    AKA: An alternate ending to S3:E4 "The Sauna Test" that changes everything.

    Summary

    And Billy, curled in a cheap plastic seat with his eyes squeezed shut, wonders, could it really be this easy? Just get on a bus and go home?

    (It isn't that easy).

    Summary

    “There anything I can do for you, man?” he asked, and Billy could see slow recognition fill Steve's eyes, the second he put Billy’s face together with the man who stood in front of him, taller and possibly broader than he was as a teenager, with hair cut short and shoulders squared. But Billy’s grin was the same. His leather jacket was the same. When Billy ran his tongue over his teeth, stared Steve down, he felt some of that fire he had felt then, wasn’t sure if he liked it.

    “No,” Steve said.

    “What?” Billy asked. “I haven’t even said anything yet.”

    “Exactly,” Steve said, snapping the laptop shut. If Billy looked closely, he could make out a scar creeping out of Harrington’s hairline, the exact kind of scar a kitchen plate would leave.

    “Isn’t this a tattoo shop?” Billy waved his hand around. “Don’t you take walk-ins?”
