    Summary

    Steve gets out of the hospital but his parents are still out of town and he's faced with a cold, empty house. Good thing he's got a grumpy sheriff, a pack of smartass kids, and even someone he doesn't expect to help look out for him. Featuring lonely-and-miserable Steve, (more) snarky children, and (still) paternal Hopper, among other things.

    Summary

    Harrington stops. Billy watches all the blood drain out of Harrington’s face and there wasn’t much color there to start with. Harrington lifts the bat again, tries to get to his feet, lands back on his ass. “Billy,” he says again, but it’s desperate now, not relieved. “Billy, behind you!”

    Four times Hopper doesn't arrest Billy and one time he does.

    Summary

    Billy looks back over at him, drying his blood-free hand on a corner of the plaid shirt. “What the fuck is wrong with you?” Billy asks.

    Steve says, “I wish I fucking knew,” even though he does know. What he means is, I wish I could get it to fucking stop.

    Summary

    Steve takes a second to feel relieved he’s not Dustin getting all sorts of arrested in places he shouldn’t be, then he goes back to staring.

    Steve hasn’t seen Billy Hargrove since high school. Three years ago.

    The cop is staring at them, looking back and forth. “So uh,” the cop says, “Are you boys…good? If you’re still willing to vouch for him, then I’ll need you to sign for him, Mr. Harrington.”

    “Steve,” Steve corrects absently, at the same time Billy corrects, "Princess." The cop coughs awkwardly, and Steve walks up to the front, signs for Billy like he’s a package, or he guesses, in trouble with the law.

    Summary

    It’s March and it’s too cold for Billy to be shirtless and wearing shorts, but he hadn’t noticed until Harrington appeared and made him hold still. Harrington can’t seem to stop looking at the bruises. “What’s it to you if I miss a little school, Harrington?” Billy asks. He feels goosebumps rising on his skin.

    “I don’t know,” Harrington snaps back, looking uncomfortable. He shifts his weight from one foot to the other. Plant your feet, Billy wants to scream at him. I’m going to bowl you over.
