Vecna is defeated. Steve Harrington stays in the hospital to be with Eddie Munson, despite everyone's confusion, including his own. After Eddie gets released, he has his first night terrors and immediately calls Steve for help. How can Steve resist?
Title from "Take Care" by Beach House
Eddie notices Steve has an interesting reaction to him pulling his hair and teasing him. He makes it his mission to figure out exactly what makes Steve tick, and said mission is quite successful if he does say so himself.

“Oh, you like when I call you princess?” Steve nodded with a whimper. “How about baby? Sweetheart? Honey?”
It felt like Steve’s brain was being overloaded and about to self-destruct. “All of it, Eddie. Everything you say drives me up the fucking wall.”
“Wait! Dude, the door!" Steve exclaims, jumping up and running toward the door to the office which is rapidly swinging shut behind Eddie. Eddie whips around and grabs the knob to catch it, but not before Steve trips and runs into him, knocking them both backwards into the door, which shuts with a loud click.
There's a moment of silence where they stand frozen, Eddie pinned against the doorframe with Steve smooshed into his side, before they both shout "fuuuuuuuuck!" in unison.
