Eddie blinks down at the walkie. He’s so tired, he’s been hiking all day and it’s only sheer exhaustion that’s keeping him from freaking out about how itchy he feels right now and how he doesn’t see a shower anywhere in here. He scrubs at his eyes and then presses the button again. “Excuse me?”
“People take this job when they wanna get away from shit,” Richie says casually, like they’re discussing the weather. “So what’s wrong with you?”
“I — that’s — what the fuck’s wrong with you?” Eddie splutters. He’s way too fucking tired for this. Instinctively, he curls in the fingers of his left hand, running his thumb over the pale band of skin on his ring finger.
Or, Eddie Kaspbrak, newly divorced, takes a summer job as a fire lookout in the Shoshone National Forest, with only the voice on the other end of his walkie talkie to keep him company. Inspired by the video game Firewatch.
