Dee had been away on an undercover assignment for hardly more than a week; he’d expected it to be longer, everyone had, he’d even been told four to six weeks minimum when he’d reluctantly accepted the gig, but he’d hit the jackpot in record time, passing on the information he’d gleaned via a dead drop, and the Feds, deciding they had enough, had pulled him out early.
They’d done it the right way, arresting him during a raid so that if needs be, they could use him again, but Dee had just been glad to get out of there. The girlfriend of one of the gang members had been getting a little too friendly and he hadn’t enjoyed playing along, making her thug of a boyfriend jealous.
Still, it was over, he’d been debriefed, and now he got to go home to his lover and the mutt. He’d known he was going to miss Ryo like crazy, but he hadn’t expected to miss the dog so much. The little chap had grown on him over the last couple of months.
Letting himself into the apartment, he wasn’t surprised when a small brown dog came scampering towards him, barking with excitement and trying to lick him. It was certainly an enthusiastic greeting; the dachshund’s tail was wagging so hard most of his long body was wagging too.
“Hey there, you crazy mutt. Did ya miss me? Least ya haven’t forgotten who I am!” Dee petted Dick, stroking his long, floppy ears and doing his best to avoid getting his face licked.
“We both missed you.” Ryo appeared from the kitchen, drying his hands. “I could scarcely believe it when you called, didn’t think I’d be hearing from you for weeks yet.”
Dee straightened up, pulling his lover into his arms for a long, loving kiss; it was almost worth having to go undercover if it meant coming home to a welcome like this.
“Missed you too, baby; both of you. Been cold and lonely the last nine days. I’ve even kinda missed walkin’ the dog. It’s really good to be home.”
