    Summary

    "Eddie?" The blond mumbles, staring at the ground. Beside him, his best friend makes a questioning hum. Buck doesn't meet his eyes, feeling his heart begin to pound again.

    When he doesn't say anything else, Eddie knocks his shoulder against Buck's. "What's up?" He prompts, unaware. 

    Buck swallows, and then finally says, "I tried to kill myself last night."

     

    (Or, Buck's been struggling for a long time, and he finally breaks.)

    Summary

    Eddie lets out a quiet groan and reaches for his phone on the nightstand— the bright screen blinding his eyes, and a sudden feeling of worry creeps up in him, making his heart beat in his throat when he reads Buck's name.

    "Buck?" Eddie answers the phone, rubbing the sleep away from his eyes with his fist.

    "Eddie…" A weak and shaky voice greets him on the other end of the line. It does nothing to ease Eddie's worry. "Can you take me to a hospital?" Eddie hears Buck's labored breathing when he pauses. "I don't feel good."

    Summary

    (Please ensure you read the tags.)

    He just wanted the thoughts to stop. The ones taunting him for his failures, his mistakes, every fuck-up he’d ever made from the crush he’d pulled the pigtails of in second grade, to not pushing more between Maddie and Doug to protect her, for filing the damn lawsuit in the first place because his feeling were hurt, the stupid thing he’d said to someone in line at the coffee shop two days ago and made things awkward, all the way to not insisting he go down that well in Eddie’s place and being buried under forty feet of wet earth and anything and everything in between.

    Summary

    Chimney studies him for a moment. Sounding uncharacteristically sincere, he says, “Eddie’s going to be okay.”

    “He almost wasn’t,” Buck replies.

    “Shit,” Chimney mutters. He finally lets Buck have his hands back and sits down heavily in the chair next to him. “You can’t think that way, Buck. Close calls—they’ll fuck you up, you know? You’ll spend all your time worrying about something that didn’t happen and miss the significance of the stuff that actually did.”
