A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
A long night lay ahead of them; this was one of the aspects of police work Dee liked the least. Paperwork was, and would always be, the bane of his life, although being able to foist the lion’s share of it onto his new partner made it a lot less of a burden than it usually was. Stakeouts were nearly as bad though, and they couldn’t be avoided because they required a minimum of two people, just in case the criminal they were waiting for showed up or something went down.
This would be his first stakeout with Ryo, and Dee comforted himself with the knowledge that even if sitting in their parked car for hours on end was as boring and uneventful as he expected it to be, at least he’d have something in the car with him that was worth looking at.
Ryo put the car in park and turned off the engine, settling himself as comfortably as he could, his gaze focused intently on the building across the street. It was already dark, and since this was not one of the better areas of the city, there were few people about. Dee slid down in his seat, prepared to take a nap.
“Wake me if anything happens.”
“No way!” Ryo glared at him in the darkness. “Bad enough that you stick me with the paperwork; you’re not getting out of doing your share of the surveillance too!”
Dee scowled. So Ryo wanted to play hardball, did he?
“You want me to stay awake you’ll just have to entertain me.” He leant towards Ryo, preparing to pounce, only to be rebuffed with a well-placed clipboard.
Slumping back in his seat to nurse his wounded pride, Dee sighed gloomily. He’d been right; it was gonna be a long night.
