Dee floundered to the surface, spluttering; he was soaked to the skin, the water was freezing, and he would’ve given anything right at that moment to just go home and jump in the shower. He didn’t get paid enough to deal with this crap!
There was some small consolation in knowing the idiot he’d been chasing was in the same state, dripping wet, miserable, his teeth chattering uncontrollably. It was his own fault; if he hadn’t bolted, Dee wouldn’t have been duty bound to give chase, and if he hadn’t been a brainless idiot, they wouldn’t have wound up taking an unexpected swim. Dee resolutely refused to take responsibility for what had happened.
Scrambling out of the lake, he hauled his captive onto the bank and reached for his cuffs.
“Aw man, why’d ya haveta tackle me like that? I catch pneumonia I’ll sue! It’s fuckin’ January!”
“Shut up! Next time maybe you’ll think twice about runnin’,” Dee ground out between clenched teeth. How was he supposed to know the ice was too thin to take their weight? Nope, no way this was his fault; he wasn’t the one who’d decided to take a short cut across the frozen lake!
