A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
New York had been sweltering under a heat wave for over a week. After a long, uncomfortable day at work, because suits really weren’t fun to wear in such temperatures, both Dee and Ryo welcomed the end of their shift. Stripping off jackets and ties, they headed for Dee’s car, eager to leave before anyone found a reason for them to stay.
“Got any plans?” Dee asked casually.
“Beyond getting out of this suit, taking a shower and turning up the air conditioning? Not a thing.” Ryo brushed the sweat-darkened bangs off his forehead. Even his hair felt limp and exhausted. “Why?”
“Just wonderin’. I don’t either; I thought maybe we could pick up some food, a couple six packs, maybe a movie. Just be couch potatoes for the evening.”
“You’re inviting yourself over?” Ryo teased.
“Well, you said you didn’t have plans. I just thought it might be good after the day we’ve had. But if you don’t want to…” Dee trailed off dejectedly.
“Actually, that does sound pretty good,” Ryo agreed, smiling.
After all, sometimes even he could think of nothing better to do than kick back and drink a beer or two in front of the TV.
