A/N: Here’s a double drabble.
Dee doesn’t like the way Rose looks at Ryo; it’s predatory, calculating, sly and lustful, and it doesn’t bode well for his partner. Rose wants Ryo and he’s the kind of guy who’s used to getting what he wants.
Ryo has a lot of good qualities, but he’s completely oblivious to some things. In particular, he never notices when he’s being hit on, and he’s been in Rose’s office an awfully long while. A little timely intervention might be a good idea. Ryo’s kind of an airhead, but Dee can’t have the Commissioner getting his slimy paws on the man he himself has been pursuing for so long.
Opening the door to Rose’s office without bothering to knock, Dee’s just in time to see Ryo backed up against the wall as Rose moves in for a kiss. That won’t do at all, but it’s easy enough for Dee to block him with a well-placed file.
Rose definitely isn’t pleased, he glares daggers at Dee, who glares right back, but Ryo actually seems relieved to be rescued and only too happy to accept his partner’s invitation to the shooting range.
Maybe Dee has a chance with him after all.
