    Summary

    Steve wondered when he’d gotten so goddamn stupid. Probably the exact moment Billy had first kissed him; all the brain cells had flown right out of his ear. Billy Hargrove was definitely the worst thing that had ever happened to him, he decided.

    loving binge-reading this! gonna put my fave parts from reading this so far below (no spoilers!)

    current chap: 17

    ***

    He looked at his reflection in the big window in the stairwell as he left work; he looked like a sad stupid bisexual loser. His tie had cactuses on it. Oh. Cacti. He knew that. Cac-tie, okay he got it. He helped Linda take her stuff out to her car.

    Steve beat Max with a ten and slapped her wrist. “He doesn’t need to look up houses, just business complexes.” Everyone stared at him and he wondered if he’d said something really fucking stupid again. Maybe he’d misheard Mike the other day. “What? You said she was in a, a warehouse or something.” He worked in an industrial complex; it was 900 Wynwood. There was the big office that held two businesses and there was a canning company and a vacuum manufacturer. Hopper probably already knew to check places like that; he probably already had.

    Everyone stared at him some more. Mike said, “Oh my god, that actually makes sense.” He ran out of the room like a little nutcase.

    “Steven! That is not a Monday tie, what happened to you last night?”

    She thought she was so crafty. Steve flipped his sunglasses onto his face like a huge dork. “I really can’t discuss that during office hours, Linda,” he said.
    Linda laughed.

    When he sat back down Bill was skatin’ by and he winked at Steve again.

    Dustin looked taken aback. “Uh, Billy just winked at me,” he said; Steve sighed.

    “Yeah, bozo, I don’t think that was for you,” Lucas told him.

    “OH!” said Dust. Jesus.

    Dad’d even asked Linda if she was keeping Steve out of trouble which was so embarrassing.

    She hadn’t even looked up from typing on her little keyboard. “I wouldn’t know what to do without Steven, he helps me so much.”

    That’d made him feel good, and it shut Dad up too. Linda was really an angel, like on a PBS special or something. Her birthday was in August – she said she was turning forty-six again – and he definitely needed to get her something awesome.

    “Are you tryin' not to smoke in the apartment?” Steve asked him.

    Billy turned around and looked at him like he was dumb. “There's a dog at the park,” he told Steve.

    “Oh. Right.”

    Bill leaned out the window again.

    “Hahahaha,” he said. “Oh, shit.” He turned back to Steve. “It's two dogs,” he said happily.

    Oh, he thought like a moron. “Did you make me a tape?”

    Bill looked like Steve had shot him or something. His eyes got huge for a second and he reached across the table to shove at Steve's arm roughly. “Don't fuckin' take it out while I'm standin' right here, wait til I go, asshole!” he said. “Jesus God!”

    Hey Steve bet you didn't think I'd really make you a tape. I know you thought I was doing some shit. Quit thinkin I'm gonna fuck around on you, it's gonna make me mad, asshole. Mrs Byers has got like every Genesis record. You guys should talk. Hope you like it. I tried to put on a bunch of corny shit I thought you'd like or shit that made me think bout you. Max made fun of me real bad for the smiths song but I dont give a shit. Have fun in the city. Love you so call me Friday. Billy

    He got Billy his ice cream; he always liked to mix the flavors just like Steve did (compatibility in a relationship was important).

    “Whatever.” Dad didn't say anything so Steve said,
    “Yeah, it doesn't matter.” Maybe it should matter but it didn't. Steve had always used to get really worked up when Dad would start his petty bullshit with him – he was tired of doing that. He'd used to try so hard: when he was a kid, he'd stay up all night studying – or trying to study, at any rate – to try and get a good grade so that his dad would say something nice to him for once, or memorize the sports stats in the paper so that they'd have something to talk about. He was really tired of trying.
