A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
This was what Dee has been longing for, aching for, ever since he first met Ryo Maclean. His fellow detective had captured first his attention, then his interest, his desire, and finally his heart, and Dee had been a willing if frustrated captive, completely ensnared by the bright-haired, dark eyed, object of his desires. He’d had no wish to escape, only yearned for Ryo to reciprocate his feelings.
Then, after years of seemingly hopeless pursuit of the unattainable, a night had come when Ryo had laid back in Dee’s bed and said ‘yes’ instead of the expected ‘no’, leading to a passionate encounter that had only served to stoke the fires of Dee’s desire higher.
Weeks had passed following that night, but just as Dee had begun to think it had been an impulsive, regretted one-off for Ryo, his resigned disappointment had turned to elation with a few simple words.
“I love you, more than anything.”
Now, lying in Ryo’s comfy bed, his exhausted partner and lover fast asleep in his arms, there’s only one thought in Dee’s head. If he’s dreaming this wonderful turn of events, if all his life is a dream, he hopes he never wakes up.
