A/N: Surprise, another double drabble. Dialogue is borrowed from the manga.
Ryo didn’t know what stopped Renard Henry from killing him, he just heard the man gasp the name Maria and the next thing he knew, the sound of a gunshot echoed loudly in the hotel foyer, and the knife went flying from Henry’s hand. Through a fog of exhaustion, Ryo heard a very welcome voice shouting his name. How had Dee managed to get back so fast? Not that it mattered; Ryo was just glad to see him.
“You all right there, Ryo?”
“Yeah, I think so.” Ryo slid slowly down the wall until he was sitting on the floor. His legs seemed to have decided that sitting was much better than standing, and he wasn’t about to argue with them.
He would have liked to stay where he was, propping up the wall, but Dee wasn’t at all happy about him being injured and someone had to keep the idiot from doing something stupid, like shooting the man responsible. Since there was no one else around, it fell to Ryo to remind his hotheaded partner that murder is bad. It took some doing, but Dee eventually settled for beating the living daylights out of Mr. Henry, calling it self-defence.
