A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

Catching Dee staring intently at some rocks alongside the path down to the beach, Ryo wandered over to see what he was looking at. “Find something interesting?”

“Yeah, come and see, just be careful you don’t scare them. They move really fast and it’s taken a while for them to come back.”

Ryo crept up alongside his lover to look; several small lizards were sunning themselves on the rocks. “Oh! But I thought you didn’t like reptiles?”

“I don’t like snakes, I’ve got nothing against lizards. These are sort of cute, look how tiny their feet are!”

Several kids came running down the path just then, eager to get to the beach, their parents trailing along more slowly behind them. In the blink of an eye the little lizards were gone as if they’d never been there.

Dee sighed. “Damn, I wanted to get a photo of them.”

Ryo hadn’t noticed until then that Dee had his phone out.

“Guess you’ll have to wait until they come out of hiding again.”

“Looks that way.” Dee stared up the path, frowning at the sight of another family on their way down. “Might be a long wait.”

Ryo grinned. “We’ve got time.”

The End



Dee Laytner, lizard lover

He's a bit surprised to find them so fascinating, it's the little boy in him showing through ;)

Thank you!
My guy would love to see something like that. :) But the guys can keep it!
Written from life, because I love watching the little sand lizards years ago when I was on a family holiday in Wales, I think it was the beach at Llangranog. There were steps down to the sand, rocks and brush to either side, and these little lizards, maybe tree inches long, sunbathing. But they vanished when anyone came down the pat. Sadly I didn't have a camera with me at the time.

Thank you.
