Slipping quietly out of bed, Dee moved to stand beside his lover, who was perched on the windowsill staring out at the deserted night-time street. It was almost two in the morning, and most of the people who lived in this neighbourhood were probably in bed, sleeping.
“You okay, babe?”
Ryo turned to look at Dee, his face in shadow, his eyes glittering faintly with reflected light from the streetlamps below.
“I’m fine, just thinking. What do you think Bikky’s doing right now?”
“It’ll be around eleven at night there, so he’s probably livin’ it up at a party, drinkin’ beer and checkin’ out the girls.”
That wasn’t what Ryo wanted to hear so he frowned at his lover.
“He’s eighteen, too young to be drinking!”
“He’s a kid in college. You really think he’s not gonna get drunk with his friends now he’s away from parental supervision? Hell, he’s probably gotten drunk a few times before he even left home.”
“But I taught him better than that!”
“Yeah, but kids haveta make their own mistakes. Didn’t you?”
“I guess. I just worry about him.”
“I know. Come back to bed and we can live it up a little ourselves.”
