‘You’re not a kid anymore, gettin’ ready for your first date,’ Dee chided himself. ‘You’re a grown man so why’re ya gettin’ so nervous? It’s not like any of this is new.’
It wasn’t; he and Ryo had been together nearly two months now, had slept over at each other’s apartment even before becoming a couple, had been out for drinks and meals together loads of times since the Chief had assigned them as work partners, and yet somehow this was different.
They’d managed to do the whole relationship thing back to front and upside down. So what if they’d been sleeping together for a couple of months now? Tonight was to be their first official date, dinner and a movie, and Dee couldn’t afford to mess it up because he didn’t want to spoil what he and Ryo already had. Everything needed to be perfect; Ryo deserved nothing less.
Dee dressed with care, nerves and anticipation warring for dominance as he tied his tie and slipped into his jacket, checking his appearance in the mirror. Wallet, phone, and keys went into his pockets; he’d just have time to pick up flowers on his way to Ryo’s.
Here goes nothing.
