A/N: This one’s a double drabble and a half, 250 words.
That was one of Ryo’s biggest problems; he’d apologise even when he wasn’t to blame. He’d done nothing wrong, this whole situation was Dee’s own fault for jumping to conclusions, and yet once again Ryo was apologising… for what?
For not being the man Dee wanted him to be? For not returning Dee’s feelings? For rejecting his partner’s advances time after time and leaving him frustrated? Why should Ryo feel the need to apologise for any of that? Dee should be the one saying sorry. If he was frustrated, yet again, he only had himself to blame because what else could he expect if he kept hitting on someone who wasn’t interested?
He was sure he was right about Ryo, and that his partner was gay, not straight as always he claimed to be. Even when beautiful women hit on him he didn’t show any interest, but the same was true when men hit on him so maybe Ryo was simply asexual. Disappointing for Dee perhaps but as long as Ryo was happy it was none of Dee’s business.
Only trouble was, so many times when he’d kissed Ryo he’d felt his partner respond, and if Ryo truly wasn’t interested, would he do that? Not that it mattered right now.
“Don’t apologise. It’s not your fault, dammit.”
“But I am sorry.”
Too nice for his own good, and too good for someone like Dee. As much as it would hurt, maybe he should settle for just being friends.
