Things kind of went downhill from there. Dee drank most of the wine himself, passed out on the balcony, then got sick from drinking too much. Ryo reluctantly agreed to fetch some ice for his headache, but Dee decided to tag along, hoping the walk might clear his head a bit. Instead, he slipped on something at the bottom of the stairs, adding some bruises to his hangover. Ryo was torn between sympathy and annoyance; Dee was twenty-seven and a detective, he shouldn’t need a minder but apparently he did.
When he realised what he’d slipped on was blood, Dee sobered up pretty fast. That wasn’t the kind of thing any police officer could ignore, especially in light of the body they’d found.
An unfamiliar voice interrupted their discussion. “Don’t move.”
Looking up, Ryo realised it was the mysterious stranger he’d seen earlier.
They never did get the ice for Dee’s head, but he didn’t seem to need it anymore; like Ryo, he had other things on his mind.
Surprisingly, the stranger turned out to be a New York cop too. Dee and Assistant Inspector Rose didn’t get along and Dee soon stormed out. All Ryo could do was follow.
