    Summary

    “Incident Command to Firefighter Buckley,” the sound echoes through all their radios, the open frequency to try and get a response, “Firefighter Buckley, respond.” The static on the radio is telling, as everyone collectively holds their breath, waiting for a miracle, praying that Buck’s luck stays true; horrible event, miraculous survival. That’s how Buck works, the most terrible things follow him through life, and he beats each one of them, by the skin of his teeth if he has to, but he beats them.

    But there’s no answer, nothing witty, no smart comment, no response.

    Summary

    Alarm washes over Buck's features. "Eddie, I think she saw me. She's coming over here."

    Later, Eddie is going to wonder what on earth possessed him to do it, but in the moment he is seized with sudden clarity. "Do you trust me?" he asks, looking Buck directly in the eye.

    "What—of course—" 

    Buck doesn't get to finish his sentence, because Eddie cuts him off with a kiss.

    Summary

    Eddie seems in better spirits than before, and he gets some of the playful gleam back in his eyes after a few minutes, shoving Richie off the dock and into the water while laughing loudly. Richie comes up for air, water dripping all over his glasses, and the sight of Eddie’s head thrown back with laughter is enough to make him feel like he’s still below the surface, losing all his breath.

    --

    Or, the Losers take a vacation together and Richie pines like it’s his goddamn job.
