A/N: This one’s a triple drabble.
JJ is lurking, waiting for Mr Studly to appear. Just because he’s dating Drake now doesn’t mean he’s stopped thinking Dee handsome, because when it comes to good looks, on a scale of one to ten Dee is a twelve, easy; maybe higher.
That’s not the reason for JJ’s current desire to lurk in wait though, he has altogether more altruistic motives, and he was chosen because he’s the smallest of the squad’s detectives and the one best able to keep out of sight. He’s good at this surveillance stuff.
Today, unbeknownst to the man in question, he’s Dee’s backup. Ryo was worried about his partner; this undercover gig is a bit risky, and he’d be here himself as unofficial backup if he didn’t have a bad cold. When trying to be inconspicuous, nothing attracts unwanted attention faster than constant sneezing.
So JJ is doing this for his friend, knowing Ryo, or any member of the squad, would do the same for him in similar circumstances. All he has to do is keep out of sight and make sure the initial meet with the weapons dealer goes off without a hitch. Once the dealer is satisfied Dee is who he’s pretending to be, a time and place will be set for the ‘purchase’ of several crates of assault rifles, stolen from the military a few weeks ago, and for that Dee will have plenty of backup.
Tonight though, he’s practically on his own, and not wearing a wire because it could be detected and give the game away. He’s armed, the dealer will expect that, but if it looks like things are going south, JJ is prepared to lend assistance. If, on the other hand, things go as planned, Dee never has to know anyone was here, watching his back.
