“Two weeks!” Ryo complained. “We have to stay home for fourteen days all because some idiot who might be infected spat at us!”
“I know babe; it sucks,” Dee agreed, from where he was sprawled comfortably on the sofa, looking relaxed and unconcerned.
“We’re not even allowed out to visit the shops! We’ll have to order our groceries online, and you remember the mess the store made of things last time I tried that.”
“It’ll be a pain, but we’ll just haveta make the best of it. We’ll manage, even if they screw up our order.”
“I suppose, but we should be out there on the streets, doing our job, helping to keep the peace. We’re short-staffed as it is with so many people having to self-isolate for their own safety! Plus we have three open cases we’re in the middle of investigating!”
“I hear ya.”
Ryo frowned at his lover. “You don’t seem particularly bothered.”
“I am, but it’s no good gettin’ stressed about the situation. There’s nothin’ we can do about it. We’re not the only ones goin’ through quarantine, and we’ve got it better than some.”
“How d’you figure that?”
“We’re quarantining together, isn’t that better than bein’ alone? We can keep each other company, among other things.” Dee’s lascivious grin told Ryo exactly what his lover meant by that.
“So you’re glad we’re both stuck at home because you won’t have to go without sex for two weeks, is that it?”
“You’re twistin’ my words. I’m just sayin’ if we have to do the whole quarantine thing it’s good we get to do it together.”
“Sorry. You’re right. I just hate the idea of being cooped up indoors for so long.”
“Not crazy about it myself, but if we can survive this we can survive anything.”
