When had he realised Ryo was the only one for him? Dee couldn’t put a finger on the moment his feelings for his partner had changed from simple, uncomplicated lust into this all-consuming need to spend the rest his life proving to Ryo that no one was more important to him.
He supposed it must have been a gradual thing, his feeling evolving as he’d gotten to know Ryo better, from hot new work partner, to object of lust, to best friend, to… what? His soul mate? Perhaps. Whatever. Dee could no longer imagine his life without Ryo in it.
Ryo thought back, trying to figure out when he’d realised he was falling in love with Dee. Had it been when his partner was trapped in the school, about to be blown sky high along with the building? He’d been terrified then, desperate to help but knowing there was nothing he could do, and afterwards, when he’d found his partner alive, the relief had been so overwhelming… But had that been love or simply fear for a close friend?
Maybe it wasn’t important. All he knew was that Dee had made his life complete; there would never be anyone else.
