A/N: Written for hisoka44 who wanted to know what Rose’s first impressions of Ryo and Dee might be. This one’s a double drabble.
Berkeley Rose is still busy with his somewhat unofficial investigation when he runs into the man from the balcony again. It’s not the first meeting he was hoping for; for one thing, he’s pointing his gun at his mystery man and for another, the man’s not alone. Oh, and there’s blood on the floor. Damn, he should probably collect some evidence. What a nuisance. Still, business before pleasure.
It turns out the two men are also cops on vacation, what a delightful coincidence. Or not. The dark haired one seems resistant to his not inconsiderable charm. Well, no matter. Berkeley’s not interested in him anyway; he’s a typical New York street punk, brash and abrasive. He’s met the type before, many times. They tend to be hot-tempered, all brawn and no brains with a chip the size of Manhattan on their shoulders. Not like the beautiful Detective Maclean at all.
Suggesting they all work together to solve the case doesn’t go down too well. Detective Latyner somewhat childishly storms out. Doesn’t like playing with others, apparently. Maclean follows, but not before giving Rose a piece of his mind. He’s feisty; Rose likes that in a man. This could prove interesting.
