Title: Evening In
Characters: Ryo, Dee, Bikky
Setting: Shortly after the manga.
Summary: Dee comes over for dinner and the basketball game.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble. Prompt at the end.
They’d left work on time for once and headed to Ryo’s apartment. Bikky hadn’t exactly been thrilled about Dee staying for dinner, but as the basketball game started, the two of them settled down companionably enough to watch.
Ryo joined them after loading the dishwasher, settling on the sofa, noticing the way Bikky glared at Dee as if daring him to try something. Dee remained glued to the game.
At halftime, Bikky was sent to bed, and Ryo snuggled up against his partner with Dee’s arm draped around him.
“Y’know, the brat’s gonna find out about us eventually.”
“I know; I just didn’t want this evening to be spoiled, not when you two actually seemed to be getting along for once.”
Dee tore his attention away from the game long enough to smirk at Ryo.
“We can agree on most things basketball related, long as it’s not the Knicks or the Bulls playing.”
The rest of the game was watched in silence; it wasn’t until it ended that Ryo spoke again.
“Are you heading home or what?”
“What d’you want me to do?”
Ryo leaned in for a kiss.
“Stay the night?”
“Thought you’d never ask.”
A/N2: For the prompt ‘Stay The Night’ (I’m using a bunch of prompts I already used for Torchwood drabbles – this one’s a song title from the Billboard Hot 100 charts.)
