A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Dee had always considered himself to be in pretty good shape. Playing basketball whenever he got the chance helped, as did carrying out repairs around the orphanage; he could turn his hand to fixing most things. He even hit the gym now and then, when he could be bothered. Despite his muscles though, he had to admit that Ryo had him beat to hell and back for sheer physical flexibility.
“How’d you get to be so bendy?” he asked one night as they sprawled on Ryo’s bed, basking in the afterglow.
“Bendy?” Ryo asked with a chuckle.
“Yeah. Half the positions we use I never tried with anyone before.”
“Cross my heart, babe. I’d never even suggest ‘em if I didn’t think you could take it. You double-jointed or somethin’?” He’d wanted to ask that for a while, but hadn’t found the right moment until now.
“No, I’m definitely not double-jointed,” Ryo laughed. He propped himself on one elbow to look down at Dee, smiling. “I guess it just comes from my martial arts training; those exercises are probably what help keep me flexible.”
“Hmmm.” Dee looked thoughtful. “So, d’you think you could teach me?”
“Maybe. We’ll start tomorrow.”
